Clip-on cupholder?

Postby Flipflat » Fri Jan 20, 2012 9:56 pm

Is there such a thing as a clip-on cupholder? I use a standard innova disc bag, and it's only got one pocket for a cup. I'd like to be able to carry both a thermos and a water bottle, while keeping my hands free. Has this been invented?

With a zip tie and a carabiner you can add a clip to any bag. A thermos with a handle could then clip on and ride along. The weight distribution and convenience will be the details the devil dances to. If the thermos is swinging free it would be obnoxious. A sleeve held on by two carabiners may work.

Of late I have been been on a green tea kick. Is this stuff addictive or what? I am going through it by the quart.

The idea was to carry something warm with me through the rounds in the frigid winter. I noticed that drinking hot liquid between rounds warmed up my core better than a warm car and heated seats. I used to be relatively immune to cold but my resistance is shrinking. Once you catch a good chill it is tough to shake it. Hot liquids work well.

The thermos in the car was easy but how to fit one in the bag set up? Now that we have a base of snow on the ground I have switched from a cart to a sled and found it wedges nicely next to the bag. When you pour out the scalding liquid it takes a while before it cools down to a drinkable level. So I also use a travel cup with a snap on top. Most thermoses have a cup attached but if you set it down on the sled it will spill as you trudge to the next hole.

I carry so much stuff with me it feels like a full time job just managing the stuff. What next, a caravan of caddies? How ridiculous would that look?

The walmart in our area has smaller metal thermos' that have a clip right at the top of the lid so they hang nice and straight. Maybe not completely ideal but I've seen a few different people carrying them and the seem to work fine.

You could just use this as an excuse to get a new bag.... Lol

What kind of green tea you drinking? I've been buying different types over the last few months. I want to like it (hot chocolate gets old after a while, plus I'm trying to cut down on the sugar intake) I just can't find a flavor I like.

I have thought about putting together some kind of clip with cup holder thing for a while, but I'm not feeling so industrious as to actually go out, get the materials, and put it all together. Kinda want to just buy something. I'll have to check out Walmart's camping section. There's got to be something out there.

Yeah, I thought of that. I really want to try out a Voodoo JuJu. Two cupholders, and it's not one of those mammoth bags.

I think you mean the Mojo, the Juju only has one drink holder.

Right, Mojo, that's a sexy bag right there. Too bad it's like $85.

If you want a clip on drink holder, I have had decent success with the Yakuzzi clip on for my fade crunch bag. If you have a cart, and don't mind spending a little cash, I recommend the Kuryakyn Snap N Go system. They have a few different models to choose from. They work pretty good on four wheelers.

Peppermack and Flipflat-

I saw one on cabela's website. I am wondering about insulated clip-on cupholder. I doubt there is one.
