As I’ve said before, I’ve never been big on camping. One of my constant complaints is the lack of hot water. I always take a bath with hot water. If the heater’s broken, I’d rather go without my daily bath. And yes, I know that sounds gross, but a cold shower? Not appealing at all.
But with the release of the HeatStick, I think it’s time I cross that item off from my “Reasons Why I Don’t Want to Go Camping” list.
For someone who enjoys hot baths like I do, HeatStick is a pretty cool gadget. I know that it’s meant to heat up water for drinking or for other sanitation purposes, but who says you can’t heat enough water up to draw an at-least-lukewarm bath?
HeatStick was developed for freeze-dried rations, boil-in-the-bag rations, MREs, beverages and personal hygiene in extreme climatic conditions where efficiency, safety and performance are everything. It’s developed to meet the needs of Special Forces and outdoor professionals under the most hostile conditions.
That said and given everything it can do, the HeatStick doesn’t come cheap. A 1 litre bottle with the HeatStick system will set you back 2,379KR, or around $404 (USD). Maybe I’ll stick with the cold shower.
