For all outdoor adventurers out there, this is the ultimate accessory to own: a pocket shower. If you have experienced the need of proper cleaning in the middle of nowhere and had no other alternatives than wet wipes, you will sure appreciate this invention. When unfolded, the shower turns into a waterproof storage able to hold up to ten litres of water at a time. Any trouble washing properly when outdoors or on a long trip is now history. Of course, if the sun is up and shining, the water can turn warm and the shower will become an even more pleasant experience. It works easily with the use of a nearby tree to hang it from. You just have to get out the incorporated shower head and that’s it. So, next time you venture outdoors, be sure to pack this handy pocket shower.

Looking for interesting water feature ideas? We spotted these unusual water features designed by Mesa Garden Studio. Mesa’s House by the Creek is a picture of elegance and unique design. The deck turns into a modern, contemporary waterfall that drops off into a shallow pool that adds depth to the deck surroundings. The pool is subtle at the top and almost invisible... but when the water drops off the shelf into the bottom pool, it adds a Romanesque feature to the landscaping.
Another water feature idea is Mesa’s ReyRosa raw concrete water trough. The modular and modern shape of the trough adds a contemporary spin to the traditional idea. This is such a unique way of looking at a water trough. Whether it's used solely to collect rain water, or to provide water for animals, the modern concrete water trough deserves praise for the innovative and exaggerated design.
