For those of you adverse to getting into a sleeping bag with with mud caked on your legs, dirty and tired from a day in the woods, here's a piece of gear will prevent that pre-sleep complaining. New Hampshire based Nemo plans to release its new Helio Pressure Shower this spring. This backcountry bath comes in a neatly nested kit that provides five-to-seven minutes of water pressure. Fill the 11-liter fabric tank, let the water warm in the sun, set the tank on the ground, then give the pump a gentle press with your foot every 30 seconds to a minute while holding the seven foot nozzled neoprene shower hose overhead.
A curtain? Not included.
