Zodi Outback Gear Extreme SC Shower
Hot Showers Anywhere
This product excels because it is so simple.
Fill the tank with water. Use propane to heat the water in the tank. Pump it up to pressurize the tank and you have a hot shower you can take anywhere.
Because the pressure only lasts for a minute or so before you have to re-pressurize the tank, I've learned to wash and rinse in stages and that each time you have to re-pressurize the tank, you should pump it a little bit more than you did the last time.
It's great to take a hot shower when you're out in the woods!

Good product - came without sprayer
I like the product but it showed up without the hose/sprayer. We planned on rigging up a different set-up for the sprayer so I didn't return it or ask for the hose end. Burner is great, heats up fast.

I bought this for a 2 week camping trip. It just isn't big enough for my needs. I'm sure it could work great for some but I needed something that held more water.

We have had one of these for about 6 years now and it is still going strong. We use it with a little shower tent and it is fantastic. You need to know how to shower with less water than you use at home as you are not at home.
We find, with one filling we can get two and sometimes three showers with it. Wet, soap, rinse, repeat and it works great. Person who uses too much water has to haul more.
The only modification I made to it was to drill holes in the ring below where the tank sits and put on the inside a ring of sheet metal (small and light) to shield the flame from the wind. This has really changed how fast it heats up as the heat from the burner then goes into the tank much better.
I use a pin with a hole and clip to attach the wind block. Takes less than a minute to attach and the shield fits in the bag with the shower.
We also use this to heat water to do dishes. We camp a lot where there are no facilities and have had others take a shower with it in exchange for hauling water. Combine this with a couple of black shower bags to warm the water in the sun during the day and it is just the thing after a day of hiking or mountain biking.
