Cons Small shower head, narrow opening, must hold in ON positionHeavy, doesn’t pack smallerPrecipitous drop-off in pressure, included nozzle not a great shower, can't fully emptyShorter battery life, can’t submerge battery, durability issuesPrecipitous pressure drop-off, can't fully empty, hose required for refill, small capacity
Bottom Line Once you experience this shower, you won’t want to leave home without it!If top notch performance is what you want, then this is the shower for youA simple yet effective car-top pressurized washer for you and your gearOut of so many apparently identical showers, this one isn’t the top dog - but it comes at a nice priceNot the best shower but a great portable rinse station
