Just curious what you guys thought about this new product and whether it would be a more viable cooking tool than what can be found in most people's bug out bags:

Developed with the Special Forces in mind, the patented, flameless, anodized-aluminum Heatstick ($460) can quickly and turn your 1L Nalgene into a disinfecting kettle. Just attach the fuel, hit the igniter and integrate Heatstick into the included water container, or your own, and boom: hot, clean water. Ideal for turning freeze-dried rations into a outback Sunday roast, creating potable drinking water or even aiding with hinterland hygiene, the Heatstick is the only water heating system that operates in a vacuum. The Heatstick is silent, odorless, has a neutral heat signature and does not emit any light whatsoever — good when you’re avoiding night-vision goggle clad baddies. Just don’t forget to bring some extra Fuelsticks.

Pricey, but seems like it might be more compact when you consider it gives dual application to your water bottles. Thoughts?

I wonder how anything that heats up can have a neutral heat signature.

$460.00 will buy a lot of goodies, all of which would probably be more critical than a better way to warm up your water bottle.

I'll pass on that one.
