Zodi I.hut Shower Enclosure
The self-supporting Zodi i.hut is HUGE - almost 4 ft wide per side and 6 ft across! Great for showering, bathrooms, and changing clothes in private. The oversized zippered door allows for easy entry and exit, and the large detachable floor keeps you clear of mud and makes clean-up a snap.

Taking a shower in the woods.Sep 29, 2010
By James W. Pullaro
This shower stall provides all that is needed to take a decent shower. Just make certain that you have it staked down or with the slightest wind you will be wearing it.

Good griefMar 08, 2014
By Tony Stompanado
Hey, I got this thing as a second hand/used item. It didn't appear to be used at all, and assembled perfectly on the first try. I would advise that you assemble it prior to actually needing to use it to become familiar with it. You might also like to bring along a thicker pad to stand on or maybe a piece of slatted teak as a standing platform. It will be more comfortable on your feet and provide more effective drainage.

First, the description offered is incorrect; the door closure is a zipper not a spring loaded flap. Also, the base is not rigid as in the photo. Also, The dimensions are incorrect; it is 5.5 ' high (poles are 8') X 4' at the bottom and top. The fiberglass poles are very robust. The 7/16" diameter poles bend looks extreme but is not so there is little stress which means you really gotta screw up to break them. The floor is a square piece of flexible waterproof material which lays flat, is 6" wider than the hut and rolls up easily.
I have been camping for free (freecampsites.net) but many of the primitive sites have zero facilities so this hut and the pressurized Zodi along with a portable pot w/chem bags make it possible from my van. I set this up only when I need a shower but it is easy enough it could be set up daily when traveling.
It is free standing so can be set up and moved into a tight spot even with the 16 sq. ft. footprint which stakes out first with 4 stakes. 4 more for the huts base. None are provided for the upper part. With a very little patience it sets up and comes down pretty quick. Not like a pop up but the Zodi Hut is the best in many ways. To the reviewer who found it intimidating and sent it back because the poles were too long and he could not set it up in his house; I say too bad, you are missing a great shower hut. One reviewer calls it a "Cluster ....", wish I had a video of them setting it up. That would probably be more like the monkey and the football.
The huge size of this hut is a real plus. It has room for the hot water tank and a chair will fit for dressing after the shower.
The reviews which claim that this hut is over engineered are silly. It is designed like a tent so what is so complicated about that? Actually it is designed to be a usable shower/changing hut which it is so the engineers deserve credit not abuse. Also, Zodi continues to improve the design.
The reviews which claim the stakes are poor are incorrect as these stakes are steel unlike the soft aluminum ones which come with most tents. Of course these may have been recently upgraded by Zodi. If the ground is too hard for these stakes, it would be too hard for any but the most robust stakes. If you use a big hammer to pound heavy stakes in, good luck getting them out. In wind a couple of guy outs to the top would be required. An optional top is available for rainy conditions.
The only problem I found was that the poles do not slide through the loops well so I am adding small carabiners so I can clip the hut to the poles (upper ones only) with no sliding required. If that works, set up will be much faster and the enclosure can be dropped effortlessly when not in use. Another solution to the loop problem would be to add a plastic sleeve to the loops to improve how the poles slide through them.

Quality productMay 24, 2013
By M. VanHelder
It was easy to put together once we got the hang of it, and simple to use. The only criticism I have is that the stakes for staking it out were tiny and inadequate. We had more success with giant rocks.
lots of room and like that two people can get in it togetherAug 30, 2014
By J. Sullivan
The grommets for the corner poles held up for one set up then one ripped out. Other than that, lots of room and like that two people can get in it together
