Those "Hot Beverage" bags with zip closures are pretty good, I never use them for drinks, but they work well for keeping small articles dry and organized and seem durable.

I do the same, but in my kayak. Keep a little air in, and they will float in the event of a roll. Been there, done that, no fun. Lost my shoes and my lunch, but got my phone back.

Good humor.

That old post should have been divided into two posts, but
Am certain it’s all there without any linking error. I reverted to it from time to time.

What am I overlooking?

First, of course, you use the outer bag as an oven to heat everything. Put the activated FRH inside, then your main, side, and whatever else around (never IN) the FRH. Flip the pouches over when half done to get even heating.

Recall a video presentation about the demonstration and benefits of the FRH and possibly the HBB.

Am sure the only limits are the limits to one’s imagination.

Could that link be directing to an area of the site that's not open to all? For me the link just returns me to the board index.

Or maybe I'm missing something?
