2.5 gallons seemed to be enough for one good shower.
Joe G. Austria
Filled to just about the top, this shower holds just enough water for my husband to shampoo his head and wash his body.
I just put it in the sun, and within a couple of hours, the water was nice and warm and ready to shower with.

It's worked well over the past three months of continuous use. It carries enough water for 1 person to shower completely. You just have to use a rag and be somewhat conservative.

The shower head could be designed a little better. If you're hands are soapy it can be difficult to get the shower head closed quickly (with one hand) to save water.

It developed a pin hole sized hole in the plastic bag, but I put some electrical tape over it, and the tape holds up well.

You should get temps to about 70 for the water to get hot enough (left out from 10am-2pm) to feel comfortably warm while you shower. You can probably get away with cooler temps, but the shower may be a little cooler than you might want for ambient conditions.

Jul '09 Update:

My '08 model shower was stolen, so I ordered another one to replace it. The '08 model they shipped me had a locking clasp that you could use to adjust the slack in the handle, or pinch the clasp to open it up. I found the locking clasp to be very helpful as I would re-hang the camp shower continually, usually over a tree branch close to the trunk so that the trunk would be thick enough to support a full bag. With the locking clasp I could hang the bag all by myself without too much difficulty.

The '09 model that I was shipped does not have a locking clasp; instead the handle looks just as it does in the picture. You have to manually un-thread and re-thread the handle strap if you want to hang the handle over a large enough trunk branch to confidently support the weight of a full bag. You can get around this by looping a locking clasp type strap around the handle and branch.

The 2.5 gallon summer shower is a great product. It has a deceptively strong shower head. No, it's not like having your shower at home, but for primitive camping where no showers are available you'll thank yourself again and again for having this. 2.5 gallons is more than adequate for a nice shower (and I have shoulder length unlayered hair). I have 2 of these showers - I use one as a shower itself and the other one is used for washing my hands before/after preparing food, using the facilities, etc. Golf towels hang nicely from the handle too when you use it for handwashing. It hangs nicely from a tree or any other sturdy area.

BIG NOTE OF CAUTION IF YOU'RE CONSIDERING THE 3 GALLON SHOWER BY THIS COMPANY - don't get it, get this one instead. For some reason the 3 gallon size is the same as this 2.5 gallon so just get this one. I learned that the hard way when I bought one each of the 2.5 and 3 gallon. In the grand scheme of things it's not that big of a deal and wasn't a big enough deal to send it back to Amazon, but people should know that they really aren't getting a bigger shower, just one with a different shape and is without the soap holder on the 3 gallon version. Shame on the company for misleading the consumer on the capacities of the 2 different sizes, but it is a great product otherwise.

We love this product. It is convenient and easy to use. The Thermometer is an added bonus. I also use it in our backyard to wash our dogs. Very handy shower. I had thought I would want a larger capacity but the 2.5 works for us. We also used it to wash dishes when we were camping. Water warms quickly.

this is the third brand of solar shower I've tried and my favorite so far. I live full-time in an RV, and for 10 months of the year, this is how I shower and heat water to do dishes, saving propane. I have hip-length hair, and I wash the hair, too, with 2.5 gallons. Or I take a shower and clean the kitchen. You can't use suburban wasteful habits, of course, but 2.5 gallons should shower two or three people if they use common sense.

Other brands break quickly at the seams and this brand, though three times the price of some, doesn't; in that sense, it is well worth the money. I'm posting the review on the one year anniversary. It heats quickly. On a 90 degree day, the challenge is to remember to grab it soon enough so it's not scalding hot.

The problem this and every other solar shower I've owned has is: the tubing is far too long. I suppose if you were seven feet tall and hauled it up into a tree, you'd appreciate it, but if you're from 5 to 6 feet tall, all that happens is that the long tubing slumps in a "u" and the last gallon does not come out without help. So you can either squeeze, and risk a decrease to the life of the thing, or keep a plastic cup at a low enough level, fill it, and dump it over yourself. Or you can cut the tubing, glue the shower head back on and hope the glue holds.

When this sits in the sun for a while, it gets borderline hot, like too hot to use. But it feels great after the pool. Solid construction except the tip where the water comes out would sometimes leak a little bit, but if you closed it when the water level wasn't at the very end of the line (by opening it, raising the spout above the bag and then closing it), it wouldn't leak at all.
