I really love this product...my pack-weights have dropped off the scale since I began using it...but I find it a little expensive!

I recall finding a can of this product in the garage back on the farm 45 years or so ago.  Having not seen it for a long time I assumed it had gone out of production.  Happy to hear that the current generations can benefit from this time tested product.

You guys went for the fancy brand-name stuff.  I buy dehydrated di-hydrogen monoxide in bulk and save a bundle!

 Be careful that stuff can be dangerous to humans if used improperly.  There have even been some deaths reported.

You have to watch for the cheap Chinese knock offs. They are known to add other things.

Once wound up with a liter of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)!

Seth...with all the controversy surrounding the use of di-hydrogen monoxide it is difficult to source in bulk...any suggestions?

The can looks heavy.

Is there a Ti version ?

Maybe it's actually a can of compressed hydrogen in it. If you carried H2 in some form, mixed it with air (20% O2), ignited it, and collected the reaction product you would get 18g of water for every 2g of H2... why not? Might even be able to make water as you cook...

 I think there are some patent issues that are holding up productions.

I wish liquid oxygen was sold that way. This way when I get winded during high altitude climbs, I can just crack one open and guzzle it, like a beer!

 You are cracking open beers during high altitude climbs? Impressive!

Oops! The beer is out of the can, so to speak.

We have a 6-pack of the freeze-dried H2O that we got in the 1960s. I wonder about the shelf life. You don't suppose it has spoiled after 50 years?

Look for the European-market version on ebay...it's goes down smoother, 'cause the bond angles are different...

Maybe it's actually polywater.
