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.
“The Original Nomad Collapsible Tub is extra portable, bring it camping or set it up in your own backyard. We designed our tub to be easy to set up and get soaking. (FOR REMOTE SOAKING SITES We recommend and use a Honda WX10 portable water pump that is capable of filling the Nomad tub in 10 minutes).”
“The Original Nomad is based in Portland Oregon, where we design and manufacture our unique outdoor products. The Original Nomad company is inspired by the great outdoors and the creative, adventure seeking human spirit. Our experience has been greatly impressed by family and friends who have adventured creatively. We celebrate the memories made with those who pack well and have amazed us with the love and wonder inside their picnic baskets, cargo space and campsites.”
