Long Term Report:
January 2nd, 2010
I have used the food cozy on several more trips as outlined below.
The first trip out was an overnight trip to the Shenandoah NP in
Virginia. I used the cozy to cook my evening meal. The cozy so far has
worked well with a variety of dehydrated meals. I have used the cozy
with Mountain House, MaryJanes, and Lipton sides in a freezer bag. The
bag did a great job of keeping the meal hot while it cooked as well as
keeping my fingers from burning on the outside of the bag while I was
The next trip out was an overnight trip down to Zion NP with freezing
temperatures. Having the cozy to insulate the hot food from cooling
too quickly was very nice. Food cooked in about 12-15 minutes as per
the package directions on the meal. The cozy made it more comfortable
on the hands when holding the hot food for eating.
Enjoying a meal from the cozy
The last trip out was another backpacking trip. Again, the
temperatures were down around the freezing point on a trip in the Salt
Lake area. I was again eating a rehydratable meal in the cozy. The
cozy was used twice to cook two different meals.
Impressions and Comments:
I have really enjoyed using this cozy. It is very compact and works
very well. I find it fits well in my food bag and I can leave it
there. It has more then handled the abuse from my bag. It has done a
great job of keeping my meals hot while I wait for them to cook as
well as keeping my fingers from burning. In spite of all the use this
bag has seen, the bag in still in great condition.
- keeps foods hot
- gusseted bottom for freestanding
I can't think of anything that didn't work for me
