Of all the products the camping industry produces, a pStyle is one of the most useful. The pStyle is a handheld plastic device that lets you pee standing up without removing any clothing. They are often referred to by folks who camp as one of their most essential pieces of gear.
Peeing outdoors shouldn’t be difficult — and it doesn’t have to be. If you’re going camping, you’ll want to prepare beforehand by checking out the pStyle.
Pee Standing Up
Squatting outdoors means dealing with insects, itchy plants, cold weather, and other people. Standing to pee with a pStyle is more accessible, safer, and comfortable. Check out our blog post about using the pStyle on camping trips.
If you pack a pee device for your camping trips, it may become the one piece of gear you use the most!
Using the pStyle in a Tent
You can pee into any bottle with a mouth wide enough to fit the pStyle. (You’ll probably want to practice this maneuver beforehand.) In addition, standing to pee means you can aim out from under your rain fly.
The pStyle is a lifesaver on multi-day hiking trips. Who wants to use pit toilets unless they have to? A stand-to-pee device on a camping trip gives you choices, and you can keep your pants on in cold weather.
Using a pStyle is convenient and quick. You don’t have to take off your heavy pack to squat, and it’s easier to find privacy when turning your back to others is enough to protect you from prying eyes. Plus, you can use the pStyle to wipe, saving your TP for when it counts.
It’s never been so easy to stay hydrated on the trail.
Safety for Women and Trans People
Every hiker’s safety is paramount, but the danger is more likely to be men than bears. The camping industry has statistics on this issue: in one recent studyof women in the outdoors, 70% of respondents said they had experienced harassment.
Peeing standing up is quicker and more discreet, and you can remain fully clothed. For women and trans men, this adds up to better safety on the trail.
