When planning a camping trip, most people tend to pack stuff like matches, coffee, and a spare pack of batteries. Thanks to Portland, Oregon-based company The Original Nomad, you're now able to add a hot tub to the list, as the firm has just launched a collapsible tub geared towards campers.

When in use, the 851 liter (225 gallon) hot tub measures 152 cm (60-in) in diameter at the top and 142 (56-in) in diameter at the bottom, with an overall height of 60 cm (24-in). It looks large enough to entertain a few very good friends at once.

The tub folds up into a cube measuring 38 x 38 x 15 cm (15 x 15 x 6 in) and weighs 20 kg (45 lb), including the frame and an optional heater coil that's used to warm the water. You'll also probably want a water pump, or else spend a while filling it with a bucket.

The optional water heater coil is heated using firewood, natural gas (suitable when used as a permanent tub installation) or propane gas. The Original Nomad told Gizmag that one 9 kg (20 lb) tank of propane is good for between 4 and 6 hours in the winter, or 6 to 8 hours in summer, and that a tank of propane will cost around US$17 to refill.

The Nomad Collapsible hot tub and frame costs $550 and is available in black, yellow, or red. The optional water heater coil fetches $625, or both are available as a pack for $999.
