We bought three of these for 10 mission team members to Haiti where we were staying in a remote village without running water. They were awesome. In fact, after working hard all day and putting the shower bags out all day, the water was really too warm to refresh us, so we delayed putting them out until later in the afternoon. This was SO much better than bathing from buckets and three units for 10 people worked out real well.
This is a great product. it does not leak which is very important. The lid is secure and does not leak (very important) unlike the coleman piece of junk which should never have been put on the market. HOWEVER, the plastic form which the Advanced Elements bag is made imparts a terrible plastic smell to the water even if it is in the bag for a short time and not even heated. That cannot be good for me or you. We went through tens of fillings on a 3 week trip recently putting in baking soda and flushing the bag with no positive results. However, It is so good otherwise that I will continue to try and flush it out to eliminate the smell for future use.
Great features - screw cap makes it easy to fill, releasable strap is so easy to hang, strong materials, 5 gallons is perfect size. Two down- sides: 1. does not heat up quite as quickly as our old Coleman Sun Shower. 1. Nozzle drips a bit when in "closed" position.
Advanced elements 5 gallon solar shower works very well....I enjoyed nice warm showers while camping this past weekend! A good strong rope & a caribiner helped me to hoist it to a sufficient height and all was clean & good in the world
