    Meant to add to the video... They make a decent makeshift pillow... The balloon... Not the socks :D:)

    I like that! The idea can maybe be improvised with a dry bag filled with clothing as well.

    Far too simple, low-cost and effective to ever catch on...

    What you have to do is brand it as a new product/'solution', call it 'technical', and only refer to it by a suitable TLA.

    Neat idea! Also using a laccy band to seal a balloon.

    I don't fancy your tea though... ;)

    Nice. :thumbsup:

    In winter, I stretch my damp/wet socks over a Nalgene with hot water inside. The smell is what I'd imagine would put an Inuit off their Kiviaq. :sick:

    I've never tried a balloon...not sure a normal one would survive the chemicals in my 'socks of death'.

    You could combine this idea with your carnivorous tendencies and use an inflated pigs bladder, or two. :rolleyeses:
