The Collapsible Hot Tub Of Your Dreams
As relaxing as your backyard hot tub may be, there are moments when you probably wish you could enjoy a soak away from the screaming toddlers and barking dogs that echo around the neighborhood. Solution? The Nomad Collapsible Hot Tub, a hyper-portable, vinyl-lined spa you can easily take with you on a camping trip, to the beach, or really, anywhere you could feasibly find enough water to fill it.
Out of the bag and fully set up, it measures five feet in diameter and stands two feet high, which depending on how much you can stand one another, should fit roughly five people comfortably.
To fill it to its 225-gallon capacity in about 10 minutes, the Nomad team recommends using a special Honda water pump; from there you can boot up the propane-powered heater coil (sold separately), which uses thermosyphoning to circulate warm water through hot steel and into the basin.
