Default Water bottle

I had a tip I wanted to share - I carry a Hydroflask 24 oz insulated stainless steel water bottle with the sport cap everywhere I go, and I always keep it at least half full. The bottle makes a really good club - even half full it could crack someone's skull. I also have a decent sized carabineer attached to the top to act as a 'handle'. It's something you can carry anywhere with no questions asked, and can be deployed as a weapon almost instantly.

Just an idea.

Interesting. 12 fluid oz of h20 should be about .8 pound. I prefer non-insulated steel bottles. Altogether maybe over a pound.
That could mess up your day, no doubt.

In a seminar last year for the jujutsu system I train in, one of my fellow instructors had a metal water flask with a plastic loop handle (handle looked REALLY sturdy). He teaches some quick, down-and-dirty self-defense classes for women and the elderly (as do most of us). He highly recommends such implements because you can have them everywhere and given their weight and solid nature, they are a significant force magnifier. I forgot what all he'd tested his on by whacking the crap out of stuff, but he was impressed with the results. Good idea!

Heavy lead fishing weight on sturdy line tucked into the pocket will also crack a skull. Not illegal to carry.

Yes it is in a lot of places simply because it is not an everyday item have a reason to carry. Unlike a water bottle that you have reason to carry, is very accepted everywhere, everyday object.
If you want something like that carry leather wallet with coin pouch on chain.

That coin pouch is brilliant. A legal way to carry a blackjack. I might have to make one even though I would probably never carry it, but I would use strong magnets as the catch instead of a snap. I knew people that used to keep a handful of change in there pocket that could be used to distract enough to get away, go on offensive or get at other items on person. I've seen the after effects of a couple soda cans in a plastic bag, but I don't think many people carry that around with them everyday.

I carry an aluminum water bottle in my hand and also have about 10' of paracord wrapped around it for many uses. Then I also have a water bladder in my Camelbak Mutt that carries my water for a longer event out and about.

In my Mutt, there's also a Sawyer water filtration system. I'm on the hunt for a water bottle from Avian as it appears that's the only bottle with a thread that will work with the Sawyer. You use that bottle to gather your water from a stream or other source, that squeeze it to run it through your filter and into another bottle to drink from.

If I drink the water from my aluminum bottle, I'll fill it up with my Sawyer, and then fill my Sawyer up at the next opportunity I have.
