'Hot Pod'--the floating, portable spa

Jets keep temperatures warmer than the rest of the pool

As much as we appreciate the challenges of the "AquaClimb," we're more into spectator sports here at Crave. Especially in the summertime, and even more so on vacation.

That's why we were drawn immediately to the "Hot Pod Floating Spa" from, of all places, Montgomery Ward. The pod pumps hot water through six "hydro-engineered jets," according to BornRich, keeping the spa warmer than the rest of the pool. At $800, this is no inflatable water toy, but it's still cheaper than building and maintaining a hot tub. Just make sure the kids don't get too excited and puncture it with their yellow submarine.
