Optimus's Heat Insulation Pouch / Pot Cosy is an innovative product that is simple to use but effective in its design. When being used as a cosy for your boil in the bag meal it will keep your meal warmer for longer and has a pretty solid base so you can stand your food up without having to hold it constantly. As a pot cosy it works in a similar way and features a hole for a handle to poke through. The Heat Insulation Pouch will take most solo backpacking pots.
The Optimus (H)EAT Insulation Pouch is the perfect solution for eating outdoors. Its unique design keeps your freeze dried meals warm 25% longer when used with a food pouch or cooking pot. Plus the (H)EAT Insulation Pouch has slip-in side pockets that allows you to eat directly from a food pouch - without burning your fingers.
The (H)EAT Pouch works with all brands of freeze dried food pouches as well as the Optimus Terra Weekend HE and Solo Cook pots. What a great idea!
Optimus Pot cosies are great for keeping food warm but they also allow you to save fuel by continuing to cook the food. Next time you`re cooking pasta just bring it to the boil turn off the cooker and slip the pot into the cosy and relax - it will continue to cook and stay hot until you`re ready to eat - lots of fuel saved and over a long trip you easily save the weight of the cosy.
