    Re: Using A Hot Water Bottle To Stay Warm

    I forgot to mention point 2. The steel hot water bottles also dry socks and gloves super fast! Last trip I got 2 pairs of socks wet and dried them one at a time by inserting the HW flask. Got 2 pairs bone dry in half an hour.

    I'm in the army and have been using my plastic water canteen for a hot water bottle for years whenever it gets really cold. However I can only do this when we are non tactical! It's just a case of boiling my water in my jetboil and throwing the bottle down to the botton of my sleeping bag and enjoy warm toes until I fall asleep.

    I'm not able to get comfortable with a 32-40oz Nalgene shoved in my crotch, but I've used the 2 liter msr dromedary bags and they are very easy to mold into a comfortable position... just sayin'

    just a word of caution for those cold winter nights. that warm water bottle at the foot of the TQ or hammock has the potential to start freezing. that would leach away a lot of warmth from the feet as well.

    That has never happened to me and I have done a fair deal of sub 0 hanging. Always sleep with my water so that I have some ready for BFTH (breakfast from the hammock) in the morning.

    If the bottle starts to freeze in the foot box, then that means it is below 32 degrees in your footbox. And if that happens, you have bigger issues then frozen water.

    Hot water bottles for me I have a 2 liter that lays under my legs and a bottle that goes to the footbox. This is if it is below 10 degrees. Dont really need it but it sure feels nice. I always put mine in about 10 mins before I hit the hammock so it warms it up

    I use a hard Nalgene or Camelback bottle. Sometimes in a cozy. I put it in a large gallon baggie for redundancy.
