Nemo Helio Portable Shower


Unlike gravity camp showers, the Helio portable pressurized shower and sprayer rests on the ground. The 2.9-gallon tank is pressurized with a foot pump — and with occasional pumps you can keep it fully pressurized for 5-7 minutes of strong, continuous spray. The tank cannot be over-inflated. Set the black tank in the sun to warm up gradually or fill it directly with hot water for a warm shower. nemoequipment.com
