4.0 out of 5 stars Good cheap standby shower for use in hot, sunny weather, 13 Aug 2011
This review is from: 20 Litre Outdoor Portable Solar Powered Camping Shower Camp Festival Fishing Beach
This is the same as the 'Gelert'-branded shower and is quite an effective budget shower for use while camping, especially wild-camping, in the summer.

I pop mine on my van roof during the daytime, leaving it in the sun for as long as possible to warm up, then return to it for a quick shower in the early evening. Obviously, the shower doesn't have a thermostat and the temperature it reaches is governed by how sunny the weather is and the outdoor temperature but on a warm day (25 deg) it certainly warms up the water.

I find it works best by not fully filling the bag - which helps ensure a more even water temperature and also makes it easier to lift as 20 litres weigh 20kg which can be quite unwieldy to lift above head height. It can also be hung from a tree or post but is quite a hefty weight - so I prefer to lay it flat in full sun.

The only drawback is that, while it's good for a warm trickle shower, it merely trickles and is useless for washing long, thick hair so this is something I have to forgo but - hey, I am camping and there are ample camp-sites available for anyone wanting full facilities and all mod cons!

If you're looking for a means of having a warm rinse-down at the end of the day and want to avoid camp-sites, then this is just what you need.
