During an emergency, the last thing you need is an infected cut or some other preventable illness taking you out when you need to focus on the big picture.
It’s difficult to prioritize hygiene …because it isn’t easy to, say, jump in the shower when you’re bugging out in the field (or the power is out, so the water heater is too)…especially if you’re not properly prepared.
But there is a simple solution.
A solar assisted shower bag provides the convenience of a warm shower no matter where you are.
In a few hours, the heat of the sun can warm the water inside the thermal bag while a gauge on the side will let you know the temperature of the water before it pours down your body.
But what if it is cold outside?
The solar assist is the ideal heating solution for warm sunny days, but when it’s cold or overcast you can still have a hot shower.
Just prewarm the water in your kettle! This 5 gallon water bag can handle temperatures up to 122 degrees, but your skin may not be so forgiving. The same thermometer that told you your shower wasn’t going to make you shiver, can also warn you that the water might be a bit too hot. Weaker vinyl bags could melt or come apart at the seams, but this beast is made of corrosion-resistant pvc material.
In between showers the bag rolls up to store away in its own mesh carrying bag, so it fits perfectly into any emergency kit. The shower head offers an easy-to-open/close switch with low to high water flow, making it easy to customize the water yield and prevent waste. There is even a pouch on the front to hold travel toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, soap or other bathroom accessories.
We tend to “let things slide” in an emergency, but the solar assisted shower bag makes it much easier to stay healthy and keep clean without hassle, no matter what comes your way.
