When I saw the KingCamp Solar Shower with Temperature Gauge I thought it would be a great item to have on hand for several uses. It has a 20 Litre / 5.28 gallon capacity, comes with a temperature gauge (Celcius 33 37 40 43 47 50 53) on the back of it, storage pocket on the front, hanging strap, tube with shower head and a mesh storage/carrying bag. It is available in the colors Army Green (which I purchased), Blue And Orange.
I thought this would be a good item to use at the beach, camping or even to place in our bug out bags we have, My husband could also use this when he occasionally goes hunting. The bag is designed nicely and the water fill cap on the bag was easy to fill. I only filled the bag half full, let it sit flat in the sun for about 3 hours and the water never seemed to get as warm as I would have liked it to be. It could have been the area where I placed it did not get the direct sunlight needed to warm it up enough or that I am use to my hot showers. The hose with shower head was easy to turn off/on easy but the flow of water was not what I was expecting it to be even when fully opened.
Here is some information taken from the Amazon product page:
SOLAR SHOWERS: Without fire, without butane gas, you can also get warm water just because of the great SUN. The sun shower is great for camping trips and during emergencies when hot water isn't available.
ENJOY YOUR TIME: You don't have to spare time especially to prepare warm water. Just fill this camp shower with water, lay it on plat surface, and expose it to direct sunlight. Then enjoy your outdoor life! After enjoying your outdoor activities, take a shower or simply wash your hands and face, you will feel the gentle water flow and suddenly relaxed.
DURABLE CONSTRUCTION: Strong handle for reliable hanging and carrying. Hang this sun shower in your changing tent or tie on a tree branch.
EASY TO OPERATE AND CLEAN: Large filling valve with twist-off cap for easy filling water. The flexible shower hose with handy on/off valve makes showering a breeze. You're supposed to mix baking soda and warm water together and swish it around in the bag/run it through the hose, then hangs it up to dry out. You can roll it up to storage.

Although I had no problems with the bag leaking as I have read some other customers have experienced, I guess our use of the product over time will determine if the customers that did have that unfortunate experience were a few isolated cases where the product may have been assembled wrong while it was being processed at the manufacturer. I think this will be a good item that will be handy for the beach, camping and other outdoor activities I will update my review at a later date should I have any problems with it leaking. I did rinse the shower bag out with baking soda and water before and after use and placed it upside down to hang out and dry thoroughly before placing it back in the storage bag as recommend by the company.
I am looking forward to getting many uses from this product and at this time do recommend it. Great as a source for warm water use at the beach, camping, hunting or to place in your bug out bag. You may purchase this KingCamp Solar Shower 20 Litre/5.28 Gallon bag sold by KingCamp for $24.99 with Prime on Amazon. I did receive mine at a discount but in no way did it persuade my opinion. This is my honest and unbiased review.
