Pack a Shower in your Pouch – Sea to Summit's new Pocket Shower

Sea to Summit introduces the light and compact new Pocket Shower; third in the Pocket series for backpacking and travel

Salt Lake City, Utah Outdoor Retailer Winter Market Booth 5042, January 27, 2007 – Sea to Summit USA, distributor of Sea to Summit products, the Australian brand of innovative, lightweight backpacking and adventure travel gear, introduces the Pocket Shower. This compact shower bladder is the newest addition to their family of minimalist essentials for adventurers, backpackers and travelers in the Pocket series, including the Pocket Soap (50 dry antiseptic biodegradable tissues) and the Pocket Towel (lightweight microfiber in large and small sizes).

A new favorite in your backpack along with the Pocket Towel and Pocket Soap

Sea to Summit’s Pocket Shower will soon find a permanent spot on your gear list and in your backpack. It’s made of the same heat-resistant waterproof fabric with sealed seams as our standard Dry Sacks and has the same roll-top closure. Built into the base is a compact showerhead that operates with an easy-to-use on/off twist mechanism. The twist spout also serves to adjust the flow of water, delivering an efficient trickle to free flowing shower–for just what you need. Fill the 10 liter (2.6 gallon) Pocket Shower, roll it to close at the top, and hang it from two tough Delrinâ„¢ D rings using 6 meters (20 feet) of strong lightweight cord included. The black fabric is designed to soak up sun during the day at basecamp for a warm shower. Or fill it up at the end of the day for a cool rinse.

The black neoprene zip pouch and Pocket Shower weigh only 4.25 oz (120 grams) and pack down to only 3 by 6 inches. Combine the Pocket Shower with the new Pocket Towel and Pocket Soap for your own compact travel kit. The Pocket Shower will be available March 15, 2007 at all Sea to Summit dealers locally and nationally; the MSRP is $24.95.
