Imagine that you’re on a long hike and you’re all geared up and it starts to rain. And then it happens, that moment you dread on the trail especially when your in a mixed group of hikers. That’s right the moment you realize that you have to pee.
Now you have to stop the group. While they are waiting you have to unbundle and do the "run of shame" into the bushes. While you are squatting and getting branches poking you in the rear-end, you think, how unfair is this that they guys only need to find a tree and unzip.
Now there is an equalizer, the Freshette. Freshette is the device that allows for the quick release of bodily of fluids while in mixed company and without having to do the squat. But they do require practice and sanitizer.
The Good: Other competing products are flexible. Where the part you hold against your body is somewhat soft, which can allow for some possible spillage. The Freshette is rigid so you can press it tightly against you to form a good seal. Peeing has never been more freeing.
The Bad: It does require practice. Because women have historically positioned themselves in a squatting posture while urinating in the dirt/grass, consumers also report that they find difficulty when urinating in an upright stance. Urinating in a standing position will require a little practice.
It is particularly difficult when, in the process of using this device, one becomes aware of an ‘impending intestinal urge.’ In other words, it doesn’t help the #2 problem.
If you have used these, let us know.
