Just because you like the outdoors doesn't mean you have to smell like a beast. Do yourself, and your mate, a favor and grab the solar shower at this price. Nothing like a nice warm shower by the fire light.

Hot showerVerified Buyer Reviewed by EricaF from New Hampshire on Tuesday, August 21, 2018Quick shower fix... And I mean quick... Don't bother sudsing up!!!
Junk!Reviewed by Blacklabowner from Washington on Thursday, July 26, 2018Since this was only $5, we thought we'd try it out. The opening where you fill with water leaked, so we couldn't place that part face down as instructed. It had to be propped up. The shower portion barely worked, it came out as a trickle. The only good thing is that it heated the water up well.
Not what is picturedReviewed by Dom from Montana on Tuesday, July 17, 2018The shower doesn't match the picture on the site. It doesn't even match the picture on the box (which matches the site). The on/off is at the base of the hose not the end like pictured. Not a big deal. But water only came out at a trickle at best. We tried everything we could think of and couldn't get more than a dribble.
Flawed designReviewed by OldVtr from Vermont on Friday, July 13, 2018I purchased three of these at a great price with the expectation that they would match the performance of other solar hot water shower bags I've had. They did not. The lesser of the deficiencies of these bags is the leaking from the fill port which drains the bag of water as it lies in the sun, drenching the surrounding area. The primary flaw is the design of the water control valve, which is NOT as pictured above. The flow of water from the bag is controlled by a plug valve located in a screw-on cap on the bag itself. The aperture in the plug valve is much too small to deliver an adequate flow of water for a shower, delivering a pencil-sized flow which, with so little pressure, is not dispersed by the shower head. But, the trickle of the water which escaped leaking through the fill port, was hot after a few hours in the sun.
Didn't work for usVerified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from U.S.A. on Thursday, June 28, 2018It did get the water nice and hot. However, we could not get the water to flow out the nozzle. We tried everything, turning the knob every which way and unscrewing the top plug. We could never get more than a tiny trickle to come out.
As expectedVerified Buyer Reviewed by Joyce from MO on Sunday, May 6, 2018Haven't used this yet but looks good and it should work. I'm keeping this in my emergency preparedness bag.
Leaks all over the placeReviewed by Nic from California on Saturday, September 16, 2017The connection to the bag does not have an o-ring, and leaks all over the place. It will cause water-damage to whatever you put near it. Also, the valve is on the bag, not the sprayer, which makes it very inconvenient to turn on and off.

“Where is the valve that cuts the water off and on located at? On your picture it shows it being on the end near the shower end
but one of the reviews says it is on the end near the bag which one is correct ?”
The valve is situated at the bag rather than at the end of the tube. The only picture available is the one above, which is the same as the picture on the box of the product.
