The NEMO Helio LX Portable Shower: A Blend of Portability and High Pressure

Portable, powerful, versatile outdoor shower solution

Ah, the great outdoors. The scent of pine in the air, the gentle rustle of leaves underfoot, and let's not forget the grime and grit of a long day of adventuring. It's all a part of the experience, but when the day is done, there's nothing like a good, cleansing shower to refresh the spirit and wash away the dust of the trail. And that's where the NEMO Helio LX Portable Shower shines, my friends.

Now, I've seen my fair share of camp showers. Those gravity-fed devices that you hang from a tree? Sure, they do the job, but it's a dribble, not a shower. Not the Helio LX. This ground-breaking piece of kit rests firmly on the ground, pumping out pressure like a champ. It gives you a proper cleanse, whether you're washing the day's hike out of your hair, cleaning your gear, or even giving a wash to man's best friend.

And the beauty of it? You don't need to be a strongman to operate it. A foot pump pressurizes the tank, and a few occasional pumps keep the water flowing strong for a solid 7-10 minutes. There's no risk of over-inflation either.

The design is a masterstroke. Quick to set up, compact when packed away, it even includes a ventilated carrying case for neat storage. And talk about versatility! That 7-foot neoprene hose? Long enough to hold overhead for a good, honest shower or to tackle the most awkwardly muddy hiking boots or salt-crusted wetsuits.

With the Helio LX, you're getting more than just a portable shower. You're getting convenience, efficiency, and a commitment to quality. You're getting a 5.8-gallon tank that delivers a steady, satisfying water pressure. Want it warm? Just leave the tank in the sun, or fill it with hot water straight off.

NEMO is a company that lives and breathes adventure. They've charted their own path with a dedication to creating the best possible products. The Helio LX is testament to their philosophy of refining and perfecting details, and it shows.

Pair this with NEMO's Heliopolis privacy shelter for the ultimate shower experience in the backcountry, and you've got a set up that rivals many a household shower.

And let's not forget the commitment to sustainability. In a world where every decision matters, NEMO is finding new ways to reduce environmental impact, supporting the very lands and ecosystems we adventurers hold dear.

In the end, the NEMO Helio LX Portable Shower is more than a luxury. It's a game-changer. Because why should we settle for less than a proper shower, wherever our adventures may take us?


  1. Ground-Based Design: Unlike typical gravity-fed camp showers, the Helio LX sits on the ground, providing more powerful water pressure for a satisfying shower experience.
  2. Easy Pressurization: A foot pump is used to pressurize the tank, making the system easy to operate without the need for physical strength.
  3. Long-lasting Water Pressure: Once pressurized, the Helio LX can provide a continuous, strong spray for 7-10 minutes.
  4. Versatile Use: The 7-foot neoprene hose and robust pressure make it perfect for a variety of cleaning tasks, including washing gear, pets, or even dishes.
  5. Portability and Convenience: The precise folding panel design ensures quick setup and compact storage, with a ventilated carrying case included.
  6. Commitment to Sustainability: NEMO is dedicated to minimizing environmental impact across their supply chain and product design.


  1. Water Heating: For a warm shower, the black tank must be set in the sun to heat up gradually, which might be inconvenient in colder climates or during cloudier days.
  2. Limited Shower Duration: While 7-10 minutes of continuous water pressure is impressive for a portable shower, it may not be enough for some users who prefer longer showers.
  3. Price: Higher quality and innovative design may come with a higher price tag compared to other basic camp showers.
  4. Manual Operation: While the foot pump is user-friendly, it still requires manual operation, which some users may find inconvenient.
  5. Privacy Concerns: The Helio LX doesn't come with a privacy shelter. To have a private shower, you would need to purchase NEMO's Heliopolis privacy shelter separately.
