Pros Extremely durable, adjustable pressure, easiest to heat, handy temperature gauge, simple to useEasy to use, can re-pressurize, don't need hose, durable, intense pressureWide shower head, easy to useHighly versatile, packable, good pressure, durable, water lasts a long timeMultiple spray settings, easy to fill, durable, simple to use
Cons Heavy, 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 issuesSmall shower head, narrow opening, must hold in ON positionPrecipitous pressure drop-off, can't fully empty, hose required for refill, small capacity
Bottom Line 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 priceOnce you experience this shower, you won’t want to leave home without it!Not the best shower but a great portable rinse station
