The pStyle is a plastic device that allows women, nonbinary 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.
Please note that the pStyle works well for many adults and children. Due to the diversity of human bodies, it cannot work for ALL people. If you have concerns about the size of the pStyle and whether it would work for you, please contact us.
This pStyle is made in partnership with Oceanworks® out of recycled ocean plastic recovered from fishing nets, trawls, and ropes. Discarded fishing gear is the most deadly form of ocean plastic to marine life. It takes around 600 years to decompose and makes up about 10% of ocean plastic pollution.

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.
If you have questions please contact us.
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. Non Binary folks and trans men might use the pStyle. 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.
The pStyle works so well on outdoor adventures or whenever you are outside and dont want to remove layers or pull down your pants. I use it mainly for whitewater kayaking, because I have a mens drysuit with a front pee-zip so without the pStyle I would have to take off my helmet, pfd, neoprene skirt, and my drysuit just to pee, and then put it all back on again. And I have to pee a lot so it would suck without my pstyle. The psyle literally enables me to enjoy kayaking. Thank you! And please get the recycled plastic one because virgin plastic sucks for the planet!!
I love this PUD, and I’ve tried a couple kinds. The rigidity of it works very well compared to silicone. The size island pack ability of it are great. Initially purchased for backpacking to avoid having to put on/take off 25lbs every time I had to pee, it has now become my constant companion. I take it anywhere I anticipate having to use a port-a-pot or other highly used, rarely cleaned loo; on day hikes; on air travel; on boats; road-trips - you name it. The older I get, the more my knees thank me. I’ve started buying in bulk because friends ask about it, so I just hand one over to them. And while I love the bright colors (my first one was pink), I very much appreciate that there’s an eco-plastic option (esp since I’m buying in bulk now!). I’ve never been sorry that I purchased my pStyles.
Love that this version is made from recycled plastic. I've dubbed it my 'sea cucumber'. Works great, not even a learning curve really. I got it for climbing trips but I find myself taking it with me everywhere now. Especially great for the unclean bathrooms at my workplace.
I can't say enough good about this little gem. I've been hiking, backpacking and generally playing outdoors all my life, have tried other devices, and this is the one that consistently works well without any hassle. This is a go-to gift for my active women friends who while initially skeptical, all later rave about the ease and effectiveness. If I'm hiking and spot a Kula Cloth hanging from a woman's pack (it happens a lot), I show them my pStyle and say, "But do you know about this?" I use a Kula with my pStyle because I no longer have a 20 year old pelvic floor despite hundreds of Kegels, and it's a great combination. It is also wonderful to be able to pee and not expose myself as occasionally there are no handy bushes, so it turns into a little safety measure. I carry one in my emergency go bag as well as on any outdoor activity. I love that there is now the recycled ocean plastic version. Highly recommended for any active woman! I sing pStyle praises!
I read lots of reviews before deciding to buy the pStyle and I can now add my name to the long list of women who say “It’s great!” It really is easy to use. No leaks, no overflow, no tp required. The hardest part is relaxing enough to pee while standing up. But when you really have to go this is less of a problem. I purchased this to use on an upcoming trip to Nepal. I’ve been taking it with me on my walks and hikes to practice, but really, the learning curve is minimal. Will report back here after the trip. Thanks for making a functional, useful product! And I love that it’s made from recycled ocean plastic.
Almost 20 years ago, I tried a woman's stand-up to-pee device that looked like a children's medicine spoon. It worked if you placed it precisely, but if you were off even a smidge, the pee went straight down your leg. I gave up on these devices until now. I was skeptical of this device, but I have used it successfully when I'm out in the woods with no bathrooms. It's nice not to have to squat in poison oak or bushes. It works as described and is perfect when you don't want to squat somewhere. Thanks, PStyle!
I use this product when camping and hiking and I highly recommend!
First things first, I love that this is made from recycled plastic, and even better from recycled ocean plastic. Now, the pStyle itself: it is a fantastic device and puts an end to the frantic search for vegetation (any vegetation) to squat behind, while looking around because who wants to present their bottom to say, other members of their birding group. The pStyle requires a little practice, best done in private, and of course attention when using it. However, it makes it so much easier to visit places that don't have facilities, and I take mine along everywhere now. I've even bought a couple of spares to give to friends. Highly recommended.
I absolutely love the pStyle. Before the pStyle, I would get bug bites where the sun doesn't shine when squatting in the woods. Then I tried pee pants, yuck. I tried several other stand to pee PUDs. They did not work as well. I would always get my pants wet or the device was uncomfortable. Then someone told me about pStyle. Now I tell everyone, even men, this is the greatest product. If the flow is heavy, I lean forward to make sure the PUD doesn't overflow. The stiff plastic allows me to wipe sufficiently. When I am finished, I shake it off or rinse in the river and put in its case. I own three. One for each activity pack, hiking, biking, kayaking.
