    I use a geigerrig. It is a thicker water bladder that is made to deal with higher temperatures.

    Love all the ideas about adding warmth. My son(12) is a diabetic and we have been attaching hand warmers to his test meter and insulin. Seems as though the hot water bottle trick may be another option.

    Thanks for the tip. The last thing a person wants is to have a nalgene leak or burst.

    I always thought that the water would get cold quick, and condensation would occur... I guess not! Ill have to try it!

    Insulate the bottle in layers and remove layers as needed. I use a 32 oz (1 qt)stainless steel bottle in 2 layers of heavy sock (2 socks) and it is still warm in the morning - no condensation.
    My use: I view Hot water as a boost to my current insulation - know what your set-up will go to without it and plan trips around that limit - use the hot water if temps drop below expected or if you get chilled and need help getting warmed up. For me it's a safety item and/or a luxury item - I'm not dependent on it to get me through every night.
    Enjoying the simple things in life.

    I used this method while backpacking on the ground. So glad I can apply some of the same lessons while in my hammock!

    Like the idea, but do not want to carry a Naglene. Anybody ever try it in their Camelback?
