Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells great! This is such a great product! It's wonderful for a short trip or for camping. My only issue is that it's pretty easy to go through quickly with only 50 sheets. Additionally, it can be hard to use because you need a few sheets for a "real" bath/shower, therefore your hands are most likely wet and so it's easy to get the whole pack wet. If you're camping, it's much easier since you're typically not using as much water and soap. Also, it would be nice to be able to buy refills instead of having to buy a whole new container each time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, not so great in execution I recently bought this in preparation for a backpacking trip to India and really wanted to like this... The concept is a great one, but the execution is disappointing for its purported purpose: body wash/showers. As a prior review stated, "it can be hard to use because you need a few sheets for a "real" bath/shower, therefore your hands are most likely wet and so it's easy to get the whole pack wet." Agreed. Frankly, I'm not sure how many sheets it takes for a shower because I just gave up after a few and used the bar soap that the hotel supplied because with hot water being at a premium in India, I didn't have the time to fool around with the sheets & trying to get a lather! Maybe I'll use the rest for just washing my hands instead? I think they would work fine for that...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inefficient Bought this in hopes of it being a good and light substitute for bigger bar soap when traveling and backpacking. Brought it along camping to test when I had plenty of room and space to accomodate bringing a back up and was completely disappointed. It recommends 2 sheets but really requires near half the pack to get a lather going. Can't say much for anything else about it as it was so difficult to get an actual lather up that any of the other considerations (i.e. scent, moisturizing, etc.) became irrelevant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money I bought this product for a three week walking trip in Europe, where pack weight is rigorously necessary. One sheet is not enough for a shower. Nor two, three, or even four sheets. It takes five sheets for one shower. So you get ten showers out of this package. Any of the concentrated liquid detergents designed for camping use are a much better choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for backpacking! I love these so much! I don't like to carry liquid soap when backpacking as they always seem to leak, and bar soap is too big. For washing my face, these are GREAT! One little soap paper washes my face well, and it has a nice clean feeling and low odor. Other reviewers have said it takes a bunch of these to make enough soap for a shower, and I bet that's true. But for face and hand washing while backpacking, these ROCK!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea - not so great performance. I found these stick together very easily if they get any moisture on them. Hands need to be very dry when handling and is difficult to use in wet conditions. Doesn't lather well and runs out quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice idea - terrible product Bought this item for a multi-day hike in the White Mountains. Luckily I tried one of the pads before taking the "pocket" along on the hike. Pads do not clean, they fall apart and are tiny too! Not a item worth buying.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hiking wash Tried these, good for weekender trips but not sufficient suds to do all over body sponge bath, sticking with the no rinse suds or camp suds w/ few drops of tea tree oil.
