It can also be hooked to the outside of your pack saving room. They also make canteen cup stoves that will all fit in the cover. The best part is that all of this stuff can be picked up at army/navy surplus stores stores really cheap.
A 3$ canteen works just as good as a 20$ water bottle.
$20 bucks for a water bottle, where are you shopping ??? nalgene on clearence at sports ath. less than $2...canteen, much heavier I would think.
