Five Best Camping Portable Urinals For Accessible and Instant Relief

Updated on October 4, 2010

Going on a camping trip? Never step out of your door without checking your backpack. And do you already have something for those uncomfortable nature calls on the road?

So you’ve thought about your shelter, what food to bring, which clothes to wear, what equipment to pack in and lots more to make your outdoor vacation more comfortable. You’ve got the tent there, canned goodies and sweets, hiking boots and stuff, your survival kit, camping tools and your camping stove. Those are the things that basically provide little comfort to you while you are away from your home. Those are like substitutes for your roof, kitchen food, shoes and your home kitchen stove, so how about getting something that provides the relief your home bathroom offers?

Everyone has experienced bladder urgencies at one time or another. Usually it happens on the road or when confronted with the stench of filthy public cubicles. No one will ever tell you it’s easy.

Holding up your need to go isn’t just hard and painful, it’s also detrimental to your health. Doing so interferes with the body’s natural liquid waste elimination process and damages the kidneys. Why tolerate the inconvenience and risk serious health problems when you can have a portable urinal with you? If you have them, you don’t even need to go out of your tent when camping during the night if you need to have a leak. Just for the sake of getting safe. For emergencies, here are some of the best camping urinals to the rescue.
