Success from day one

We just got the tent. As soon as we opened it, we took it all out, set it all up checked out every feature, took it back down, and packed it all away. It was easy and fast to put up, easy to breakdown, and it all stored away in the bag with comfort. With a lifetime warranty, what else there to say? We are super pleased with the product

Great, but maybe two rooms are better

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This shelter is great for what it is. It's roomy for a single room privacy shelter and has a lot of nice features, like the towel drying line, toilet paper holder, and routing system for a portable shower hose. It's easy to setup, take down, and pack back in the bag, though the pole system can be a bit awkward since all poles are permanently affixed to the central hub, so you have extended poles to contend with while folding up an individual section. I've only used this on one camping trip where all I needed was a shower tent, not a toilet. Seeing my friend's shelter (from another company) that had two interior rooms, I definitely felt like the single room of this shelter could be a pain if I was also using it for a toilet. I would have to take the toilet in and out depending on what I was using the shelter for at any given time. Additionally, a second room would be nice for getting dressed after a shower without having to stand in a puddle of water, as the floor did not drain well for me, and I don't it doing so unless it's on a completely flat, hard surface.

Packed with Features!

I've used it several times

The Heliopolis is the perfect, take it with you anywhere, outhouse for changing, showering, or a portable toilet. But the design of this product offers more than just the basics. It has a toilet paper holder, a zipper that locks for privacy, a towel holder, and even an LED light. NEMO also makes the Helio pressure shower that works well with this product for showering. It's easy to set up and take down and perfect for every camping adventure!

This privacy shelter/shower tent is great! We just returned from a 5 day camping trip and never had to step foot in a bathroom. It is extremely well made, and there is plenty of room. It's the best thing since sliced bread.

I love this shower tent

Brilliant design. Besides providing a safe, clean and private space for bathing, dressing or even placing a portable toilet, this tent has awesome features like an LED light in the ceiling, handy pockets, a toilet paper roll holder, a locking zipper, a place to hang your towel plus a few hooks located in convenient places. I love it. It's easy to put up and take down. At first, the price seemed high, but there is quality here and it's well worth the investment.

Solid shelter

Bought this a month ago. Used it only on one trip. Seems like a good quality shelter with no complaints. It’s more wonk to collapse down and put away than it is to set up. You won’t be disappointed with this product.

Very useful

I am the father of two girls. Camping site bathroom and showers quality vary from place to place, if they even have them. The privacy tent makes it a non-issue. Combining it with a Dometic toilet and the Nemo Shower is a game changer. No longer need to rely on public facilities. Highly recommend!

Very well made and functional.

I purchased one of these 2 years age works perfect for teardrop or car camping. Use as portable shower and privy. Will get warm inside during the summer moths so try to find shade if possible. I like the fact that the water has a way of draining away without letting critters in.

Privacy and comfort

I bought this shelter for a camp shower to use in primitive campsites. It was used heavily last year when we were trying to be covid-safe while road tripping across the country. The water drained easily and the shelter was easy to tilt over after using it to empty completely. I was even able to take a shower at night using the included light. I didn’t use the feature that allows you to use the shelter as a “Restop” shelter but if the need arose I would gladly use it.

Well engineered product

I’ve used this privacy shower a dozen times. It is very well thought out and easy to setup with one person. It stands up well in the wind. The only downside (not a big deal) is the retina burning orange color. I would prefer a dark green and camo color. On the bright side, I’ll never get shot by a hunter while taking a shower.
