The pStyle is a plastic device that allows women, non-binary folks, and trans men to pee standing up without undressing. It is a simple design that works exceptionally well. Because it is made of rigid plastic, the pStyle is easily maneuvered through clothing and properly positioned. The rounded back edge is used to wipe with so there are no drips! The pStyle can be cleaned with soap and water, wet wipes, or shaken vigorously and washed at the next convenient time. It is also dishwasher safe.
Size: 1.75 x 7.5 x 1.625
Weight: .08 oz
Materials: BPA and phthalate free polypropylene.
Made in the USA
Maneuver the pStyle through your clothing and place it so the widest part is centered under your urethra. Check to be sure clothing is not inside the cup of the pStyle. Tilt the open end down, relax, and pee. After you finish peeing, wait a moment, then pull the pStyle slowly forward with a firm upward pressure to remove the remaining drops.
Shake vigorously or rinse with water and store in a secure place. If water is not available, wash your pStyle at the next convenient time or carry sanitary wipes. The pStyle is dishwasher safe.
Most users have success the first time they try the pStyle. For some it takes a little practice. You can perfect your technique in the shower.
Can people with physical issues or wheelchairs use the pStyle?
Many people with injuries or physical issues have great success with the pStyle. If you are on crutches, can’t sit on a public toilet after a hip replacement, or just have a hard time getting up and down due to painful knees it will be very useful.
We have heard positive reports from people who can’t use public restrooms due to chemical sensitivity or phobias and people with a frequent need to urinate due to pregnancy or illness.
People who use wheelchairs have varied success. You need to be able to get to the front of the chair and get the pStyle under your body in order for it to work.

How do I avoid getting splatter on my shoes / splashback in a toilet.
Take a wide stance. Avoid peeing onto a hard surface such as asphalt or compacted dirt. Aim for a vertical surface. Aim onto a surface that is lower than your shoes.
In a toilet, alter the angle of your pee stream so that it hits the wall of the toilet/urinal at a gradual angle; the closer to 90 degrees, the worse the splashback will be. You can also lay down a piece of toilet paper and aim for that.
Check out this video on the fluid dynamics of splashback for more info.
Can I use the pStyle in a car?
Never drive and pStyle at the same time. Determined passengers may be able to pull it off. Best practice is to find a safe place to pull over and use the pStyle while the vehicle is not in motion.
I’m having trouble using the pStyle. What should I do?
First re-read the instructions. You may not be placing the pStyle far back enough. The ideal spot for the back end is just forward of the perineum. Make sure you are tilting it downward and not tipping it to the side. Check to see that clothing is not inside the cup.
If you are still having trouble you are welcome to contact us. with questions. We will try our best to help you figure out how to have success.
Who uses the pStyle?
While women are the primary users they are not the only ones who benefit. Everyone wins when someone close to them has an easier time peeing. Trans men (FTM) might use one or both products. Cis gendered men might use a pStyle if they have a medical condition that interferes with their ability to stand up and pee.
Can children use the pStyle?
We have had reports of successful pStyle use from parents of children as young as three. Practice in the shower is recommended.
I bought a few for friends because it's been a game-changer for me. When rock climbing there are often never spots to drop the pants (with a harness on) next to blank rock walls. I can just turn around and do my thing. Similarly when hiking, there is no need to remove my backpack. I even take it to outdoor concerts...no hovering in the porta-potty.
Since it doesn't have a tube attached it remains clean and sanitary. And the other best part is that you can simultaneously wipe when removing it, just a quick 'scoop' and you're done.
Works well but I wish they came in flesh tones.
I looked at reviews of several products before I chose the pStyle.
I love it! It's very easy to use. I like that it doesn't collapse when trying to hold with one hand while using the other to move aside clothing. The edges are rounded and can be used to 'wipe'. And it's easy to shake any remaining wetness out before putting it back in it's case. The case looks like an eyeglass case and it discrete.
WONDERFUL for when you have to use a port-a-potty - sitting down is no longer required!
I really did my research on what products were available for purchase before selecting this one in clear. The pStyle is everything it says it is. This product is easy to master and convenient to use. It is easy to clean and carry around. I purchased this for overseas travel and it doesn't disappoint when confronted with the worst toilet situations.
The pStyle changed my life. I am an active woman and many places I work and recreate squatting is not a good option due to terrain, weather, and equipment. I pee forcefully so all other products didn't work for me (overflowing, not fitting in dry suit, etc). The pStyle is perfect and I use it everyday. Highly recommend practicing!!!!
It works great! If you follow the directions and practice, anyone can have success and never have to bare your a$$ to pee again. I own 3 of them now, one for each of my vehicles. Be warned: the top edge might need to be smoother than it is when you first get it out of the package. I just use some super-fine sandpaper like 400 or 600 grit all along the top edge.
Absolutely love this product. No more watching my fluid intake for fear of no discreet place to go. No more mooning the wild life and strangers on the trails. No more Fear of those dreaded porta potties except for the smell. Even though we can now stand like the men I do recommend reading the instructions. This is a must for any women that likes to stay active outdoors.
Before a 2015 thru-hike of the Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand, a friend warned me, "If you only take one piece of advice, buy a urinary director before you go as there are many places on that trail with nowhere to squat and pee." I was like, "Um, gross." But, I figured she knew what she was talking about.
I did A LOT of research on the least gross option for stand peeing that would prevent me from possibly peeing all over myself. Online advice said to avoid silicon devices as silicon is flexible and doesn't form a good seal and not to get something with a hose or that was enclosed, as the flow would back-up and, well...you get the picture. All of that research lead me to the pStyle, which was very well rated and avoided everything the internet said to avoid.
My friend was right; the trail in NZ was full of areas with nowhere to pee, and I used my pStyle nearly every day. I thought I would hate it, BUT the pStyle is so awesome, I have continued to use it ever since! As long as you control the flow and get a good seal, it doesn't leak at all. Its length is just right for making sure you don't splatter your shoes, but its small, streamlined size is also discreet. You can use it to wipe (and avoid the need for toilet paper) by tilting it up a little and firmly dragging it forward when you are done peeing to get the drips, (this was a trick I read on a blog, and was happy to learn worked.) In addition to backpacking/hiking, the pStyle is great for yucky public washrooms, outhouses, car trips... I rise mine with bottled water after use.
They're super sturdy; clipped (in a pStyle case) to the outside of my pack, my first pStyle lasted a whole thru-hike, plus many summers of camping/ backpacking and would have lasted longer had I not slammed it in the car door by accident. This is its replacement.
Highly recommend a pStyle case, as it keeps it clean, makes it more discreet, and makes it easy to find as you can clip it on the outside of a pack or bag. Cases are cotton and easy to wash.
Since I hike, camp, travel and go to public gatherings this tool is a must. I now have several, each packed in different bags. One thing I did learn it is best to ahem.. get as close to a tree as possible. Helps prevent splatter. I received this as a birthday present and am now giving as presents.
