    I see a lot of suggestions to wrapyour nalgene in duct tape for a quick easy access to tape when you need it. Any thoughts on whether this might actually help to insulate the nalgene a bit and slow down the cooling?

    Sorry I am late in replying to this, but I use a reflectix cozy with my Nalgene anytime the temps are below 30°F (as a native Floridian, I don't like to be cold ), and have used this trick down to roughly 20°. I have always had a warm water bottle when I got up in the morning. Never an issue.

    Be sure that when you make your cozy out of reflectix that you use the appropriate tape, as some tapes are only rated to 140° (or less). Gorilla Tape is rated to 200°, and others are even higher, but more expensive. Check out the temperature rating before you act.

    As for the poster who remarked on a "soft" misshapen bottle, you must see my post on page 22 that was really shocking of the effects on sub-standard plastics: The Amazing Shrinking Bottle

    metal water bottle

    I use a stainless steel water bottle. I like it because i can boil it over the fire and it seems to conduct heat better than a nalgene.

    I apologize if it's been mentioned in the thread already but my "hot water Nalgene" is also my pee bottle. When I wake up in the middle of the night, I dump the cool water out and refill it with a fresh 98.6 degree recharge.

    I hope you sterilize it in the morning before your coffee...otherwise the bitterness may seem intolerable.

    have never done this in a hammock, but have always done this winter camping. Gotta sleep with your water anyways to keep it from freezing. If your gonna be boiling snow for water, it just makes sense

    Thanks!

    I love this tip! This will be my first season hanging in the winter and I'm so glad I came to the forum to read up on it! One of my elder friends always told me back in the day he would boil water and put rocks it it and they would use these to keep their hands warm. Thanks again!
