The Russian Portable Sauna, built by a group of Russian men, offers a traditional Russian steam on the go. Situated inside a large military truck, the physical conditioning offered by the automotive sauna is a serious endeavour.

First, customers must get acclimatized to the sauna with extreme heat. Then, they are taken to the chill out area to relax before re-entering and being massaged with oak branches in an effort to up blood circulation throughout the body. In the small space, the heat is trapped and offers the perfect sauna conditions for chilly Russian winters.

Wired reporter Jeremy Hart got to experience this bizarre automotive service first hand. After his steam, as is pictured, he was then surprised with a full body snow attack by the operators of this machine.

Ultimately, the Russian portable sauna offers a toasty solution to cold Russian drives.
