    Hot water bottle helps to fight pain too by the way
    you can use it if you have spasms or something.
    it helps muscles to relax and pain goes away

    I'm definitely going to try this on my next cold night. I had some problems with my feet getting cold on my last night out. (35*)

    I'm a super cold person... even in spring when I'm inside, my toes are cold and my skin is cold. So hammocking is a whole different story! I just can't sleep in a tent or hammock, even with my 5 season expedition sleeping bag, as I have no heat to heat it with! I tried hand warmers last weekend in socks, but they didn't really get hot enough- but I did fall asleep sure enough. I will definitely try a hot water bottle next time. Maybe three...

    My feet totally suck in the cold, thanks to a case of frostbite 20something years ago. I wear socks around the house just about every day of the year. The folks that make those hand warmers are also making foot warmers that are basically an insole for your shoe. Give them a try. I was thrilled with them during my last winter camp this year. Fantastic for people with cold feet!

    I've been using a hot water bottle in my hammock for about 3 years now and it's WONDERFUL. I get about 6 hours of heat out of my nalgene bottle that I slip into a wool sock and then under my top quilt. I'm trying to figure out a way to get 9 hours so I can heat from 9 pm until 6 am -- the time I'm usually in hammock. Maybe I need to try 2 socks!

    I regularly get 9-10 hours out of mine. I use a homemade reflectix coozy, and I always heat my water to boiling before filling the Nalgene.

    Keep in mind that when bringing the water to a full boil, you must always use a NALGENE brand bottle, never a copy. Here is why: The Amazing Shrinking Bottle!

    Part of my extended time may be due to outside air temps, as I rarely camp below 20°. But if you have sufficient insulation and the temperature inside your bag/hammock remain 65° or so (which I believe is average), it shouldn't make too much of a difference....

    Thanks. I'll give it a try! I rarely camp below 20. Mine has been consistently 6 hours, so getting 9 to 10 will be a big improvement! I do make sure the water at a full boil and have always used the Nalgene brand bottle.

    I'll be taking 3 normal hot water bottles with me next time... these ones-



    Cus they be flat and will fit snugly into the hammock against my cold back/sides/feeties

    They are quite heavy but comfort > weight! (personally )

    Hmmm, not sure I subscribe to this concept but it is definitely an interesting topic!
