Our local community wardens bought theirs from Matalan but they were bright blue or red.

Im not in the job yet, but it might possibly clash with the bottom edge of your stab vest.

I used a standard PCSO pouch and sewed the sides in such a way so that a small plastic water bottle fits neatly inside. Works perfectly, and only takes up as much belt space as a PPK. Just right for the odd mouthfull of water in this weather!

Alternatively, if you can get hold of one of the old radio pouches, they will hold a bigger water bottle.
I may not agree with what you have to say- but I'll defend to the death (well, almost) your right to say it.

May the Reasonable Force be with you !

Interestingly they now sell water bottle holders for duty belt in the Hendon shop.

I keep any bottles of water/juice tucked by the side of my body in the body armour. Secure and out of view!

I have a Sigg water bottle with a leather belt holder thing, the same one used by the public order serials.

All line managers should ensure that their staff have access to water in extremely hot weather. This will include staff being allowed to carry water bottles on their kit belts, subject to a dynamic risk assessment and authorisation by line managers
don't forget subject to a dynamic risk assessment and authorisation by line managers :slby:
