Transportable Hot Tubs

Transportable Hot Tubs

Portable Hot Tub
Dek: 
Because no backcountry setup is complete without a spa, right?

Feel the need to take your hot tub with you everywhere you go, even far, far away from electrical outlets? Don’t worry, someone has already figured it out.

Floris Schoonderbeek, a Dutch artist and designer, MacGyvered the Dutch Tub, which he calls “the essence of outdoor bathing.” It’s an electricity-free, movable hot tub that looks like Andre the Giant’s coffee cup. The tub is heated by a wood-burning stove and can fit four people if you’re feeling cozy. Which we’ll assume you are.

The whole thing weighs about as much as a pudgy 8th grader, and although it’s not quite portable enough to bring on a backpacking trip, you could tow one behind your bike on a trailer. Or, throw it on top of your car when you’re camping for a pre-tent soak. I think they call that glamping.
