Metal Water Bottle and Sleeping Bag Warmer

Metal Water Bottle and Sleeping Bag WarmerHere’s a very quick but very useful tip for any camper to use. This tip is especially handy if you tend to get cold while sleeping at night when out camping.

Metal Water Bottle and Sleeping Bag Warmer

What you Need:

Sleeping Bag Warmer Instructions:

  • Before you go to bed, boil and purify your water if you are in the wild.
  • Carefully pour it into your metal water bottle and tighten the lid.
  • Then put the bottle in a sock (preferably clean!)

What you get:

  • You should now have a perfect hot water bottle to keep your sleeping bag and you warm at night.
  • Not only that but you have purified drinking water for the morning.

I’ve used this technique on many trips here in the UK and also in Norway and Nepal and found this trick to be extremely handy!

Happy days!

  • This is a great tip! I will surely try it. Its really uncomfortable when you get cold in the wild. Wearing triple of layers of clothing sometimes wont help. I’m sure this idea will surely be of help because I saw some nurses do this in the hospital to keep their patients warmer.
