May I add some pictures to your (very nice) report. It´s from "my" German forum, where we had a similar topic. I compared ...

Is this a real Camelbak? (...) Sorry, isn´t... :oops: As I just need it a couple of times a year, I doesn´t wanted to spend €119. So I bought this one for €29 (new!) on ebay.

Re: Boil to heat?

Has anyone here tried heating entrees by boiling them in the bag? I was thinking I could heat them while hiking with a small camp stove, instead of the FRH, since the stove would be faster. Any thoughts? To heat them up in hot water, is/was the usually method for the last decades, before the FRH´s ...
