    Default Cold Soak contanier that wll stand up to hot water?

    I usually use a peanut butter jar to cold soak but was looking for something lightweight, water tight, about 28 oz, and cheap, that with stand up to a hot cup of coffee in town or for trail magic. Any Ideas? My Vargo Bot got ripped off on the PCT last year and don't want to shell out another 100

    Thanks, Nurse

    Have you considered Lexan .... it is heat and cold tolerant, food safe, and not overly expensive. Google "lexan jars" and you will see a variety of options.

    Good old Nalgene bottles will handle the job.

    Any container made out of #5 plastic. They are meant for microwaving and holding hot stuff. I use a Zip loc round 2-cup container. They also come in a 4-cup size.
