I am going to show you the various styles to choose from, with reviews of the best portable toilets for ladies, so you can make a selection and never have to squat again...victory is truly ours!

When It Comes To Portable Toilets For Women, Choose The Right Female Urinal

A women's urinal is ideal in so many circumstances. It isn't just the perfect, compact toilet for hiking and camping. There are times when you might be a very long way from an outhouse, gas station, rest area - civilization in general - on any given day. And what is becoming common today is that girl urinals are also being used for health and sanitation - to avoiding sitting on public toilets in a restroom! The possibilities are endless for these portable little devices.


This article will explain the various options available, so you can choose the right one that fits your needs. From reusable to disposable, they are a wonderful, compact necessity to keep in your car or purse any day of the year. Bet you will be surprised at how much there is to choose from....

Whichever you choose, have fun looking around....because girls using urinals is here to stay!

Portable Toilet Types And Tips

Many Choices For Girls Using Urinals

With portability being key in my review of female urinals, I am going to focus on the two modern types of portable toilets for women: REUSABLE and DISPOSABLE. They both function in very similar ways. Which one you choose will be based on your personal preferences.

There are other types of portable urinals for women, such as the more traditional bedpans and urinals, which are a great solution for the elderly/bedridden but are not being reviewed here for numerous reasons. First, they are bulkier and need to be poured out which makes them less desirable where portability is concerned. Second, the less expensive jug styles do not get good reviews (they don't conform to a woman's body as well). Third, to find a high quality traditional urinal that works well, you will have to pay a lot more. Finally, bedpans, of course, are just not very convenient. Keep in mind that the funnel style spout on many of these urinals, as you will see, can be placed inside a jug if you do need flexibility and a way to contain the urine, like when you are in a vehicle.

Also, don't forget when reviewing the options below that toilet paper is still an issue. Yes...we all still need toilet paper...so here is my tip: Bring tissue in your pocket (or a roll) and ziplock baggies...a sanitary way to dispose of the paper, and you can pack it in, pack it out if using in the back country. We even use this method with portable camping toilets, for easy emptying.

So it is time to move on to finding the right urinal for you - so you won't have to desperately search for a rest area sign when on the road!

REUSABLE Female Urinals

The reusable style urinal is very popular for many reasons. Let's review the pros and cons to be sure it is the right choice for you:

The PROS Of Reusable Style Urinals:

  1. COST - It is a one time purchase that can be used over and over.

  2. DESIGN - High quality and excellent craftsmanship conforms to a woman's body, reducing the chance of leaks.

  3. SPOUT LENGTHS - These funnel style urinals come with various spout lengths (depending on brand), offering a choice in what feels most comfortable for you to use.

  4. FREE STYLE OR CONTAINMENT OPTION - These reusable urinals can be used standing in the outdoors, over a public toilet or the spout can be directed into a gallon milk jug, to be disposed of later.

The CONS Of Reusable Style Urinals:

  1. CLEANING - Though most of these urinals come with a carrying pouch (or you can use a ziplock bag), you will want to rinse them out when you get home. Many people suggest bringing disinfectant wipes to clean out the funnel between uses, until you can clean it properly.

  2. BULKIER - Though certainly not huge, they take up more space than their disposable urinal competition.

  3. BEST USED STANDING UP - Gravity is the key to excellent performance. The longer the spout, the more you will rely on good old gravity to help you avoid a mess. Many women report that it is very important to practice at home prior to use, so that you are familiar and comfortable with how it works.

DISPOSABLE Women's Urinals

For females who want to throw away their toilets, disposable urinals are the ultimate answer to portability. Though reusable or disposable urinals can be used in any environment (camping or any time you are away from home), the disposable style has a lot of popularity when it comes to quick convenience and public restroom avoidance. A January, 2010 article on Medical News Today stated that toilet seat dermatitis is making a comeback. There is no better way to avoid having to sit on a public toilet than with these items.

Let's review the pros and cons of the disposable urinals for ladies:

The PROS Of Disposable Style Urinals

  1. COMPACT - A disposable women's urinal tends to be very compact - small enough to fit in a purse or glove box.

  2. EASILY DISPOSED OF - These girl urinals are extremely disposable. Some turn urine into a gel inside a disposable pouch. Others can be easily thrown away or flushed down a toilet. Out of sight and out of mind!

  3. USEFUL IN THE OUTDOORS - Though containment styles exist, as in the gel example above, often these disposable styles work in the same way as the reusable models discussed earlier. Though the spout is not long, they provide a funnel to allow a no-mess experience in the great outdoors or over a public toilet.

The CONS Of Disposable Style Urinals

  1. COST - Though more affordable in the short term, they can only be used once so you will need to continue purchasing the urinals.

  2. NOT AS DURABLE - Though the brands I have listed below receive wonderful reviews, disposable products are generally not as durable as a reusable style. They are a different feel than a reusable urinal. If you plan on limited use, however, they are an excellent choice economically.

  3. AVAILABLE FOR CHILDREN, TOO - Some companies make smaller models for children, which is perfect for traveling. I have listed one of the best reviewed portable urinals for children below by TravelJohn.

TravelJohn Solid Waste Collection Kit - Waste Not, Want Not

So what about solid waste, you ask (though you really don't want to)? Well don't feel bad about asking....because I couldn't leave this article "1 sided" - when there is definitely a number 2!

Traveljohn does make a solid waste collection kit, but aside from an actual camping toilet you cannot expect any miracles as of yet. For emergencies, when no portable (or public) toilet is available, this might be the best gear you have with you. Just be sure to read reviews carefully - solid waste is collected but usability, odor and ability to dispose of the item after use are concerns. For the price, it would never hurt to keep one around for unexpected emergencies. That said, it certainly would be a good idea to keep one of the collapsible, folding toilets in your vehicle if going on a long outing. We take one when we are going off into the back country, for peace of mind. The item below is for solid waste, for your review....

TravelJohn Solid Waste Collection Kit

Includes 1 scented tissue pack ( 20 2-ply sheets); Dimensions: Unfolded: 23''13''x10'' (Gusseted); Folded: 6.75''x5''
