    or just any water bottle?
    I use my regular Nalgene that I already have with me. Dump out what I have in it into pot on stove, heat, and put back into bottle and go to sleep. Stays really warm until about 4:00 AM. Then I put the bottle on the ground and it cools a little more by the tome I get up.

    Same. I have recently acquired a stainless steel Nalgene that should allow me to just put it on the stove, heat the water, and just close the cap (really tight) without having to transfer the water back and forth. Haven't tried this yet.

    Too much heat and nylon probably don't mix so well. I had a hiking partner make a fleece bag for both of us - just the size for the Nalgene bottle. In the summer, the water stays warm enough that it quickly heats to coffee temperature in the morning.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    A DIY fleece bag sounds like something that would be quick to make and keep you warm and snugly. I think I'll make one. Currently I've just been wrapping a Buff or microfiber towel around it which is OK but more fiddly.

    Wool or heavy synthetic winter socks work well. I double them up until the pre-dawn chill, then peel off the 1st sock. I remove the 2nd sock as needed.
    This will dry damp socks as well - you don't want wet socks in your insulation.

    You should try putting a sock over it if it's too warm. You can also do the same thing with a metal water bottle, but you ABSOLUTELY NEED to use a sock on that to avoid burns.

    I use a very thin neoprene Nalgene cover. It lets the heat out slowly and evenly. A little bit of the top is exposed to give some good heat. Always a nice temp by morning which only needs a little time on the stove for coffee.

    My regular Nalgene bottles seem to large in diameter for a sock. But there are smaller diameter styles in the less than quart size. I like the sock drying idea. Even if they are not wet, warm socks in the morning (especially in fall/winter) - what a treat!

    I would do cold socks, but not wet. I tried that once and it was sort of like pouring water on rocks in a sauna. That moisture has to go somewhere...into my quilts and other clothing. Steam bath at -10° is no fun.
