For several years, I've been using the Helio Pressure Shower by NEMO Equipment. I prefer it over the typical solar shower bags for it's durability and functionality.

If I remember correctly, this is what has been recommended by an :macx: owner.

We have tried several different sun showers with ok results but hot water added to some cold water in the zodi is much better. Always the correct temp and good water flow. If you are doing 50 showers a year a sun shower is ok. If there are two of you on the boat for weeks or months get a zodi.

For me the Zodi extrem shower really makes sense.
So far I normally use a solar shower. But heat the water on my normal stove, the fill it in the solar shower bag.

But as sead if you use it every day the better comort will make the deal.
BUT: Again, you will have another item to store somewher :(
The solar shower I use for showerin and also to carry water if there is no at the fingerdoc
