    I like the Faschy german hot water bladders. They work great and don't leak at all. Stay warm almost all night.

Highly recommended... Just don't roll over on him in your sleep.

    I really like these water bottles. They are light, durable, and cheap and they seem to hold their temp better than regular nalgenes.

    Tiny Nalgene Bottle

    Those little HDPE Nalgene bottles work great for keeping you warm.

    Even a small leak can be disastrous. I know many who love the water bottles, I keep all liquids as far from my down as possible. In some conditions a leak (or break) can be make for an uncomfortable night, in others it can be downright dangerous. Instead, I opt for having the appropriate insulation for the conditions. I also do a lot of solo winter (subzero) trips in the Adks, and I must manage risk appropriately when solo in those conditions. For others, the risk is less. YMMV

    Make sure your bottle can take the heat....

    One must also make sure you are using proper bottles. Look back at post #213 here. I use only Nalgene brand bottles.

    I have also done this during winter camps as a ground dweller... works great and I am sure I will try it again when I hang in the winter.

    I had an old scout master that would do this with hot rocks from the campfire. He would wrap them in burlap and stick them in the bottom of his sleeping bag.
