The good folks at NEMO Equipment were kind enough to send us one of their killer Portable Shower unit known as the Helio and put it to the test Bus Junkies style. The NEMO Equipment Helio Pressure Shower rests upright on the ground and delivers the pressure you need via foot pump to wash hair, do dishes, rinse your gear, water plants, or wash dog and any other dirty camp item you can imagine. This high quality innovative portable shower is engineered to last features a 2.9 gallon capacity a 7 foot hose and averages 5-7 minutes of water. The water is generally heated by the sun and dispenses enough pressure from the foot pump to make life more pleasant in the rough. We were stoked to put it through some paces after one of our last surf trips in the bus. Lets have a look at the NEMO Equipment Helio Pressure Shower.
After a long surf session is sure is nice to have a way to douse off before heading back to the day job covered in the stoke and salt of a good morning session. But the choices are few and far between as it turns out. You either buy a jug to hold water for a quick hose off or pony up for a slightly undesirable solar backpacking shower. Most solar showers usually work best when hung from a tree and prove unwieldy in a standard parking lot scenario.
Enter NEMO’s Helio Pressure Shower—a great investment for the digital nomad looking for a way to stay active and presentable on the go. Featuring a welded fabric water tank that fills and compacts easily for storage this awesome shower is heated completely by the sun and the shower nozzle is activated via foot pump. This unit is free standing as well so no tree needed to hang this bad boy. Plus there are MANY other uses for the NEMO Equipment Helio Pressure Shower! Washing the car, the bike, the camp gear, the dog, the kids, and almost anything you need to hose off without the convenience of a water faucet. We have found this to be any extremely efficient and compact tool to keep in your travel kit for those impromptu weekend adventures in the bus! The Helio Portable Shower retail's on NEMO Equipment's website for $99.99 with free standard shipping on all orders!
