Water heats up very nicely and remains warm for hours.

I am usually READY to go home after the second night of camping, but all fresh and clean with our handy shower, I could stay for a week!
L. Kelley
Bag easy to fill (with a funnel, two person job) and the cap didn't leak (used water right out of a northern lake).

My son recently returned from his second tour of Afghanistan. His outpost spent 4 months with no running water. I sent him this solar shower so he could have hot water, instead of bathing in a cold mountain stream. 5 stars is not enough for what this shower gave to him! A hot shower!!! A++++ I bought 5 more to send to him so that he could share with the other guys in his unit! It was like Christmas to those guys! Something as simple as a hot shower. I totally recommend this product. If it can survive the conditions in the mountains of Afghanistan, it will hold up for your summer camping trips!

This shower does what it promises... it gets hot in the sun and it cleans you up! It is stable and durable. We got five showers out of this, not washing our hair. I would think you could get two very nice hair-washing showers out it though.

This is the third and best sun shower I've owned. It heats water well, as advertised. I use it camping to wash dishes, to shower and to wash my hands.

The details make this shower stand out from the others I've owned...
* The filling hole has a screw-on cap which easy to put on with one hand.
* There is a mesh pocket on the front. I use it to hold eye glasses or soap.
* You can hang the shower nozzle on either corner of the bag with handy velcro tabs. Very useful because sometimes the nozzle drips if you leave it dangling.
* The carry handle is comfortable

There are two pockets. One for the mirror, so it does't get scratched. Over that pocket, is the mesh pocket for soap, etc. The mirror is about as reflective as tinfoil, btw.

I have one complaint... one seam burst open after it fell off its hanger. Other sun showers I've owned fell many many many times over many years before bursting open at the seam. Despite this, I highly recommend this shower.

6/10/13 eta My replacement shower has fallen many times over the last three years and the seams have held. Two of my friends have since bought this shower and are very happy with it.

I've been using this bag a lot over the last few years, and just recently it sprung a leak where the hose exits the bag. I've attempted a repair, but am waiting for 24 hours before testing to see if it was successful. If it is not successful, I will still buy another one of these and transfer my upgrades detailed below to the new unit.

The Nozzle drips and gets worse with time and use. I need to keep it elevated above the bag. Not a huge deal but would certainly be better if it would not drip. After many years the nozzle loosened up enough that it will also open itself if hanging, just from water pressure, but not always.

The black plastic hollow tube for the hanging function bent into a deep U permanently, the first time I hung it in strong sunlight. This stretched the edges of the bag itself and started the tearing at the edges. I replaced this plastic tube with a 7/8" diameter wooden dowel and attached ropes to that. It took several years for this rip to progress across the remainder. When it had 1 inch left, I cut the remainder. The Silver portion is dual layered, and I cut small slits in the edges and stuck the dowel through here. After 2 months these edges began to tear as well, and I re enforced the whole area with Nashua FlexFix tape. But shortly after, I tweaked the bag by the nozzle exit so much it started leaking there so I am not sure how effective the Nashua Tape re enforcement will be with time and sunlight.

I would recommend this dowel upgrade occur before first use. I've owned 3 different Sun Showers and they all tear at the same spots. I believe had the black plastic tube not bent and allowed all the pressure to be carried by the edges of the seam, it would never have begun tearing.

For some reason my review (along with 30 + others) don't show up on this page. So I thought I would post the link to the other reviews (http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Elements-Gallon-Summer-Shower/product-reviews/B000J2Q0T4/ref=cm_cr_pr_btm_link_next_3?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&pageNumber=3) along with my original review.

Utilized this shower for 4+ months shared between 5-6 men. It is small enough that it dosen't present any sort of physical challenge when carrying it around, the nozzle sprays in a decent pattern and it is durable (survived temperatures in excess of 100 degrees on a daily basis, thrown around etc..). After 4+ months of constant use it was turned over in a serviceable condition to the next group who took our place. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a simple, compact field shower.

THIS THING ROCKS!! This solar shower has SAVED OUR BUTTS!!! (Literally, we don't have hot water right now as we are remodeling a house and living in a tent trailer!) It doesn't work if it's overcast and cloudy all day, and it doesn't work if it's tooooo cold...(well below 50*), but if you have a clear shot of the sun, and at least 3 hours, sometimes within 2, you've got minimum 90* water... and it CAN get HOT, up to 130* (my boyfriend adds cold water...) and there's plenty of water for 3 of us if we fill it all the way up... me--and I have pretty long hair, my boyfriend, and my son, all suds off. awesome. Buy it now! WAYYYY better than the $6 Coleman camp shower... which we also have as a backup but it takes at least 6 hours to get warm, and the nozzle leaks all over the place and the hose came kinked... no signs of un-kinking, plus the temp gauge on this one is nice (it's gotta be touching the water, NOT the air bubble, and you've gotta shade it from direct sunlight for at least 30 seconds to get an accurate reading.) There's a little pocket in the front and a mirror that does a good enough job. All in all, a great buy.
