Yes, it has a black solar bag. No garden hose attachment. Just a capped fill hole.
It does come with a solar bag. It does have a attachment part where the shower head and hose attach but I am not sure if it fits a garden hose.

No, but you could easily design something that would connect to a garden hose.

I just purchased this one for myself for camping, though I didn't take everything out of the box to use it for myself, yet.
It DOES come with the 5 gallon shower bag, that you hang inside of the shower enclosure. It does not require you to have a garden hose attachment...so NO, there is not a garden hose attachment in the box.
The bag is filled with water before-hand & then close the red slide-lock to prevent water from leaking back out of the bag and then set it in direct sunlight laying the bag down flat.
I would sit it in direct sunlight for a minimum of 5 hours...My rule of thumb is 1 hour in direct sunlight for every gallon of water to be warmed, to be sure it's nice and warm before you take all your clothing off and get into the water!
However, each person has their own shower water's "warmth requirements," so I would double check it out for yourself in your backyard, several days before you go camping. The shower bag with the attached tubing is all that is necessary...besides water in the bag & the shower tent.
Just fill your shower bag with water - heads up...it will be quite heavy once full & place in direct sunlight & check periodically for "your" desired temperature. It will never get as hot as your own home's shower's warmth, just so you know. It will only reach about 100 degrees F. max. when "fully heated" by the sun.
I just ended up buying the TRITON 5L. hot water heater, which uses a propane tank to heat the water to 80-150 degrees F. and that comes with a different type of set-up requiring no bag at all.
The TRITON either hooks up directly to a hose or a tub filled with water that siphons out & up to the shower head - which IS included with the TRITON. The shower head is a pretty decent one at that, compared to the one with the 5 gallon water bag.
*Walmart carries the TRITON as well, at least they used to. The TRITON is a bit pricey, the least so @ Walmart though...BUT, I think it is worth the price for a nice hot shower if you plan to use this shower when camping! IF you're interested, check it out @ Walmart online first, to see if it's something you might want to buy or not before you waste your time looking for it or pricing it against others.
