Camping with a solar shower bag offers the enjoyments of a hot shower with the convenience of portability. These benefits alone may be just enough to make you want to stay away from the everyday hustle of the real world. Imagine being able to bring the benefits of home with you the next time you go out camping. Although the solar shower bag is used primarily for camping it's uses are not confined to just an outing in the woods. There are many sizes to choose from and the durability of a solar shower bag will give years of service for your camping shower.

What is a Solar Shower Bag?

A solar shower bag is constructed with either plastic or rubber. One side of the bag will be clear while the other side will be darker. The solar shower bag allows sunlight to easily heat up the water inside the bag using the clear side while the other darker side helps retain the heat. It's a very simple yet rewarding invention. Most days it will be hot enough that you can simply hang the bag overhead and it will give enough sunlight exposure to warm the water. On colder days you may have to lay your solar shower bag down flat with the clear side up so that all the water will be exposed to the sun. Most come with a flexible hose and nozzle ready for showering.

A solar camping shower can be used anywhere you need to rinse off. Taking it to the beach is a great way to wash off after a day of fun in the sun. Using it at home can offer a quick rinse after getting out of the pool or a hard day of playing. Adding a solar shower bag will give you the warm water for your camping shower. The only drawback to a solar shower bag is that it's not very useful in the colder months. There are other types of shower heaters that can be used for this purpose, such as a propane camping shower, but the weight starts getting much heavier, so if you do a lot of hiking the solar shower bag is your optimal choice.

Solar Shower Bag Size Matters

Solar shower bags come in different gallon capacities. You should first look at your needs before purchasing one. For example, a solar shower bag can hold 2.5 and up to 10 gallons depending on its capacity size. While the smaller is designed for one or two campers the larger ones can be made to either allow multiple uses on one day or give you longer times in between fill ups. When its time to pack away the solar shower bag simply rolls up in a neat little package and is ready for storage.

A solar shower bag is low cost, low maintenance, and takes up little room. Adding this to your camping shower will take you from getting your breath knocked out of you by cold water to a relaxing time in the shower.
