    Using A Hot Water Bottle To Stay Warm

    learned about this tip years ago starting a sobo pct hike a bit early in the season. deffinitly recommend a large wool socks as an over cover as the nalgene will be too hot for skin contact initially. suprisingly not only did this allow us to extend the temp range of our sleeping bags(was a ground sleeper back then) but we had decently warm water for quick was in the morning. we also used to put a few tea bags in from time to time to steep overnight and had extra strong tea in the am.

    Got down to 27. My son & I were toasty warm. It was nice getting into a prewarmed hammock

    I'm curious, just exactly how is this bottle staying warm for up to 8 hours?
    Gotta give it a try myself.
    Ive used this method and it is effective however i usually dont out a sock over the bottle because im already wearing my socks/base layer to bed. However, as far as the "8 hours and still warm" thing, i think its likely that the water bottle being warm may be a relative term. In my case, the bottle probably dropped to 80-85 degrees by the morning. 80 degrees will feel warm when its 20 degrees out. But technically (I may be wrong, im no academic), an 85 degree bottle with actually cool you off if you're trying to maintain a body temp of 98.6F.

    camp fire is also an easy way to get warm and safe from predators.

    This was the best way for my wife and I to stay warm in Alaska this past winter. We each had two 1 qt nalgene canteens and filled them with boiling water just before turning in. Lasted 4-5 hours when covered with heavy winter wool socks. One between our legs and one on our stomachs. Oh, and it was 0 to -20 degrees.

    Not in a hammock. Donít think folks are using hot water bottles in camp.

    Maybe I'm misinterpreting your comment but I don't always have a fire to sit around. Even if I'm not going to sleep yet I have been known to boil some water and put it in a bottle that I place inside my jacket to keep me warm while I'm sitting around camp.

    I didn't mean it wasn't an option to do, but that predominantly the hot water bottle was meant for keeping warm overnite in the hammock (or tent) - and that's why I didn't think the fire comment applied.

    Agreed, if you're cold in camp its a good way to stay warm. I'm often drinking a warm beverage and keeping it in between my legs between sips. I'm not often sitting around camp long enough to benefit from making a bottle of hot water, then doing it again before I go to bed.
