Kickstarter – PACE Lid

Military guys will recognize the acronym. PACE stands for Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency and that’s exactly what inventor Chris Way had in mind when he developed this waterbottle compatible lid.


The idea was to probide a handy place to store things like survival gear, or just mundane every day items such as keys and spare cash in an item that is regularly used. For many, that is a water bottle.


The water tight PACE lid is designed to attach to wide mouth Nalgene, MSR, and Klean Canteen bottles and is currently U.S. patent pending.

    I love this idea, I’ll buy one when it hits the market

    Solid product from a solid guy. Chris is all about function and what works. Thanks for posting SSD.

  3. Jason says:

    This is brilliant. I hope you get all the support you need to bring this about.

  4. mark says:

    Awesome idea. Will definitely snag one for my Klean Kanteen.

  5. SGT Rock says:

    This is some forward thinking that makes total sense.

    I like it but it’s not a new idea. It’s just a Nalgene Pillid made taller with the dividers removed.

  7. Rich says:

    Having been in the presence of the prototype, I can confirm that it will fit your dip can or hold 68 9mm rounds. It rules.

    I joined but was appalled at the goal on Kickstarter. I have experience with injection moldings and the goal price should be half that.

    • PPGMD says:

      Came here to say that.

      $130k is nuts, lots of other projects have done injection molded containers at a fraction of the cost.

      Just from my backer history I have the IO Covers was $28k, and the MS Clean 2.0 was $68k (and a majority of those were cleaning kits).

    • Greg says:

      In his break down of the expenses, the portion of the money going to the molds was listed at $60,000 so your experience seems dead on.

  9. Jesse says:

    Very clever idea. I backed it. That goal is pretty high though.

  10. Luke says:

    most “lets stash survival stuff somewhere!” products are super gimmicky. Kudos for coming up with one that is actually practical.

  11. Rod says:

    I don’t know, is it really that brilliant? I’m familiar with the concept, but do you really want to unscrew and then hold that giant can every time you want to drink some water. Especially when you could fit those contents in a 1/2 inch thick watertight pouch… In your pocket.

    This is coming from a guy who buys and at least tries just about every piece of kit out there. To me that looks like one that I’d leave on the shelf.
