Roughing it out in the Wild with a Portable Basin

While the most basic of outdoor portable basins are nothing more than a large plastic bowl which can be bought for around $5 at your local store, sometimes you want that little bit extra when it comes to your own sanitation. Take for example the ‘Reliance Wash N' Go Portable Camping Basin’ which is a feature packed product with a fairly low price tag. Retailing at around $43 this unit is one of the best outdoor portable basins you will find, especially when you consider its size. The unit comes in a small case and weighs around 6 lbs. but contains everything you could need on your comparing trip. There is space in this nifty little case for razors, toothbrushes, and even your soaps. Added to all this there is even a mirror already mounted on the top lid so you can see exactly what you are doing.

Larger Portable Basins for Outdoor Gatherings

While this type of outdoor portable wash basin may seem like it has it all it should be noted that there is not really enough room inside the bowl to wash your plates and cutlery. If you are looking for something a little bigger you may wish to consider the ‘GSI Gourmet Camp Kitchen Table with double sink’. It features a large water tank that has a foot pump attached for constant water pressure, a drying rack to make sure you do not have to pack away wet crockery and a rack for all of your utensils while you are not cooking. Size wise it is not a unit you will be carrying around on your back but for those who use a 4x4 or RV this could be a great addition. Price wise you are looking at about $140 per unit but this includes all of the extras.

Choosing the Perfect Basin

So now you have read about the two extremes in outdoor portable basins it is time to get out there and find the perfect one for you. Take you time and make sure that you are buying a product that is suitable to your needs and well within your budget. Above all else though be sure that the outdoor portable basin that you buy is up to the rough and tumble of outdoor living.
