Unlike gravity camp showers that need to be hung overhead and produce dismal water pressure, Helio™ rests securely on the ground and delivers the pressure you need to wash hair, do the dishes, rinse off gear, water your plants, or wash the dog.
You can quickly and easily pressurize the 2.9-gallon tank with a foot pump – and with occasional pumps you can keep it fully pressurized for 5-7 minutes of strong, continuous spray. The tank cannot be over-inflated. Set the black tank in the sun to warm up gradually, or you can fill it directly with hot water for a warm shower.
Unlike other pressurized showers, Helio™ can be refilled anywhere, even without a hose. The 7-foot neoprene hose is long enough to hold it overhead for a shower, or to reach all angles of dirty gear, muddy paws, or salty wetsuits. Pair with Heliopolis™ privacy shelter, which has a fitted nozzle holder for hands-free overhead showering, for the ultimate home-away-from-home shower in the backcountry.

Every day 23 of us and our seven dogs come together in a 200-year old refurbished textile mill in Dover, New Hampshire to make the most creative, thoughtfully-designed outdoor gear in the world. Sitting four stories above a river that takes you straight to the ocean by kayak, we design and build the kind of gear we love to use ourselves.
NEMO is founded on a commitment to adventure – to the fearless pursuit of uncharted paths, in everything from the equipment we build to the way we run our business. Bravely exploring new directions opens our minds, brings us closer to the people we depend on, sharpens our wits, and lifts our spirits.
Adventure gives us purpose and perspective. It makes us humble and proud. We believe meaningful adventures are possible for everyone, anywhere. Possible, that is, if you bring the will, the imagination, and the right gear.
We’re motivated by this mission on a daily basis, and we have a lot of fun along the way. Here’s a peek into our company.
