I just placed an order for double the amount so hopefully I'll have some left after the first day.
I was thinking of filling my nitro capsule with dust, then inscribing it with the man..

I had a nice bottle of Balvenie 14 yr Carribean Cask I was going to bring but I couldn't resist trying it and now it's almost gone. Maybe it's too soon to be buying scotch for the Playa......Too much temptation. :mrgreen:

Will attempt another picture..

This stuff is really great for cracky dry skin. It is marketed for feet, but I have been using on my hands for years.
It's not greasy, so I'm thinking playa dust friendly...placed an order today!
There is a website, and it is also available on amazon.

They make a product called Finger Food for hands, but I have never tried it.

I'm wary of any kind of blended spirits in cans. I'm not sure if it's the process of storing it mixed, or canning, or just the quality of the ingredients being used by the people doing it, but every single one I've tried has been lousy. Good luck sourcing the stuff, science demands that someone investigate :)

I've never heard of canned spirits except beer so in the interest of science, I shall investigate. :D

google: "molle nalgene carrier" for the bottle holder. many sellers, military color schemes.
the bottle is a 32 oz. nalgene
the cup is Olicamp "space saver". they make aluminum, stainless, hard anodized aluminum. Also GSI makes a similar stainless called a glacier mug/cup.
I've accumulated many belts and vests and have my away gear sort of down to water, and a clear plastic zipper pouch that holds chapstick, bandaids, pen, schwag, sunscreen, i.d.. I also pocket some goggles and a bandana, and I think I'm pretty much covered. I have found a flat dust mask with a valve that comes in individual wrappers... it fits nicely up in a hat. I carry the plastic pouch in whatever pocket-y thing I end up using. Then if I'm walking I grab a nalgene that has a shoulder strap and a clanky cup or mug on a caribiner on that. With this new arrangement, it's all in one, and no clanking. Here's the thing: great ideas off playa don't always pay off the way you expect them to. Getting the perfect thing is ongoing ongoing ongoing...

Thanks Elorrum, when I first saw your post and pics I got to the Maxipedition site and saw their outer containers. Your post was so together I thought it was packaged as one unit rather than individual pieces. Did you get the Condor holder? I like the way you have put it together simplifies and lightens what one carries.
