Soak Under the Stars: Ultra-Portable, Collapsible Hot Tub


What’s more relaxing than a day-long hike in the woods? How about a long, luxurious soak in a hot tub afterward? If you’re roughing it, that would usually be too much to ask for, but the Nomad Collapsible Tub goes with you – even when you’re in the middle of nowhere. The 225-gallon tub is ultra-portable so it can even go deep into the woods, provided you have a source of water to fill it up.



The collapsible Nomad easily goes together in minutes. The optional propane heating coil gets the water up to a nice cozy temperature within about 20 minutes. If you’re at at established campsite, there will likely be a water source available, but if you’re in a remote location the company recommends taking along a water pump that can draw water from a lake or river and fill the tub in 10 minutes.



Although it’s perfect for camping and traveling, the Nomad can also be used at home. At $550 (US) for the tub and an additional $625 (US) for the heating coil, it’s less expensive than a permanent, built-in hot tub but pricier than most other temporary tubs. The Nomad’s edge comes from its easy portability and its ability to be heated by propane, natural gas, or even firewood.
