Bison D-Ring Bottle Bandit

Too Good Not to Share*

Today’s TGNtS is one of my husband’s discoveries, and I don’t know that he could tell you where he found the first one. I’m pretty sure, though, that when he saw it the first time he bought at least three. He definitely hasn’t been without one since, and he’s given away more than a few on the spot.

The Bison D-Ring Bottle Bandit not only solves the problem of carrying a water bottle for a length of time, on a hike or at a festival, but this particular design stands out as superior to others that look like they do the same job. Don’t allow yourself to be fooled, as we have. Most importantly, Bottle Bandit has a rubber ring to secure the neck of the bottle, so, unlike many others, it can accommodate various size bottles. We’ve tried other versions that have a stiff plastic clip to hold the bottle, and it was surprising how often it didn’t fit around the neck (past tense, because we got rid of them). The quality of the carabiner clip is important as well, and the Bison Bottle Bandit holds up as you would hope. My husband is prone to clip it to a belt loop for a long walk hands-free, but it can be clipped anywhere you find handy. 

When you’re ready to try Bottle Bandit, make sure you get at least three. It’s great to have one handy in your car, in your camping gear, to grab on the way out of the house — and of course, you will be stopped by strangers who wonder where you got such a fantastic gadget. You might want to keep a spare one on you.

This wonder is available in two sizes. The D-Ring Bottle Bandit has a larger clip, and it costs $.50 more than it’s little sibling, Bottle Bandit. For a minimal price difference the larger clip allows a few more options for use. Purchase the D-Ring version for $5.50 each (plus shipping) online from Bison Designs at: or click here to find local stores that carry Bison Designs products:
