I just returned from two weeks in the woods where I used this shower pack for the first time. It quickly became my single most favorite camping accessory. Any doubts about it's convenience or workability vanished the first day. For those needing a hot shower, it really does get hot -- and fast!. Within one hour, the water was ready. Any longer, and it needed to cool down before using. Personally, I enjoyed the unheated, cool showers just before turning in at night. A great way to cool down for sleeping on a hot night. Most impressive was the water pressure achieved by the shower head. I was able to rinse regular shampoo, thoroughly and quickly. I plan to get a second SunShower for washing dishes. Beats heating water over the campfire!

A must have out in the heat
We live in Georgia and the "real feel" temp is easily over a hundred here during the summers. We originally bought the 5 gallon SunShower for the fall as a warm shower when we camp on our acreage. We've been taking it with us to work on the property every weekend now, though, because we found that even if it stays in the trunk of our car for a few hours, the water still stays cold. GREAT for cooling us off and cleaning up after working in the hot sun and dirt all afternoon. The showerhead has enough pressure if the bag is elevated well. Great quality and would absolutely buy again!!!

I used the 5 gallon version all summer at a primitive camp on my land. It goes a great job and is easy to setup and use; provides plenty of hot water and has decent pressure.
A hot shower makes all the difference in the world after a day of working on the land. For the price you can't beat this shower.
I even used it once at deer camp (30/40 F) this fall by heating water to a boil and adding that to a half full bag.
