Enjoying the outdoors this summer is definitely the move, so when we heard about the wildly successful Rinsekit, we just had to check it out. Needing no pumping nor batteries, Rinsekit is a totally portable and pressurized shower that securely stores two full gallons of hot or cold water for washes on the go! Delivering a strong spray for up to three minutes, Rinsekit is perfect for music festivals, camping and anything in between. The patented eon™ pressure system is easily filled by a household spigot or sink (with adapter) and operated with a spray nozzle that offers seven different settings. The compact design includes a built-in ruler to measure fish, folding handle for carrying ease, and easy-to-remove lid to stand on for changing. In addition to a six foot hose, Rinsekit also comes integrated with a hose nozzle, hose bib adapter, on/off valve, and Quick Connect. At an attractive price point that doesn't hurt your wallet, you'd be a fool not to cop yourself a Rinsekit unit right now! Much love to Letsruntrack for the dope beat. Read more via stupidDOPE.com!
