5.0 out of 5 stars Any one can use this, 23 May 2008
Me - a girl love it. Husband - after scoffing at it when the box arrived - too lazy to go outside tent in thunder & lightning - used it! Husband used it when in traffic jams. *sigh* I bought it for myself but am not getting much of a look in.

Geography trips with teenage girls who are very anxious about going to yucky toilets so in danger of dehydrating as they wont drink - a relief saver.

I bought this traveljohn so I could use it in the tent at night without having to put on waterproofs etc to go for a wee. I bought this so I could use it in grubby toilets so I didnt have to do a balancing act whilst trying to hold my nose and trousers out of a puddle and not vomit all at the same time. Since I bought this I have learnt to use it discretely in a crowd under a long skirt and no one notice..cant really do that with a Shewee or can you..surely you would have a puddle at the end of your feet! I bought this because it collects the wee, can be reusable if not full, is disposable and biodegradeable. If you want to stand up and pee in public like a man, then buy a Shewee.

Girls you absolutely have to 'fit' it snugly so no leaking occurs. In the tent use in a torso upright/ kneeling position works very well. Put a small towel on floor if you are anxious about overflow (c below)

Just wanted to add, this works the same way as modern diapers/nappies...No..not like that! It has a gel inside that absorbs the liquid which becomes soft/solid and doesnt pour or leak out. My other tip is do not move it when in position, you may be tempted to do so as urine is very warm on "exit" and you may think you are wetting your hand. You will soon be able to tell the difference.

The re-sealable top is useful if you havent filled the bag you can re-open it and re-use and no it really doesnt smell. Do not flush down a toilet but put in bins or if camping in a dug latrine as it is biodegradable. Buy as many as you can afford.

ps: Son used these on bus going around India, its very very easy for a man to use! Father-in-law who has Prostate issues has one in glove compartment!
