Until now I have relied on plastic bottles to carry and store water. Bjoern bought some gourds on e-bay and gave some to me. This bottle holds water very well and was far easier to make than I thought. With several litres capacity this is hardly a trail bottle, but I never use that anyway. For use in camp I think this one will work great.
I am happy with having a bottle of natural materials in my possession, but I need to find some way to make one out of the available materials in the area.
