Every woman can attest to the inconvenience of needing to pee with no toilet in sight. While it can feel incredibly freeing to feel a breeze on your bare bum, mid-hike, there are also crowds, cold weather, and tired legs to contest with. All of these things can make it less than ideal to pop a squat. So why is there seemingly no gear for women who need to take care of business?

Finding The Right Spot Isn’t Always Easy

Gear for women: Tinkle Belle

There are more than a handful of situations for women when having to relieve yourself becomes a stressful event: trekking from your tent in the middle of the night, venturing away from the warm campfire into the cold and dark bushes, or going cross-eyed while holding it on a busy trail with nothing to hide behind.

Of course, women are perfectly capable of peeing in the woods, just as nature intended; just pop a squat (or stand) and go.

But then there’s the issue of urinating in public — which is illegal in many places. Men are much less likely to be spotted for sneaking a pee behind a tree in a parking lot. And not every woman feels comfortable dropping her pants in a place where people might spot her, like on a trail that seems quiet until you shimmy out of your shorts and someone immediately turns a corner — we all know it happens!

The Tinkle Belle Offers A More Convenient Way to Go

Urination gear for women have been popping up with more frequency. We’ve heard their magical conveniences touted by #vanlifers, hikers, and music festival goers.

But there’s a new device on the scene, and this one seems to really nail the needs of women in all kinds of gotta-go situations. A group of adventurous Montanan women, including a urologist, designed The Tinkle Belle just so female outdoor enthusiasts can easily and discreetly go whenever nature calls.

Foldable, durable, and lightweight, The Tinkle Belle fits to the natural curves of a woman so you can go while standing without leaking and without exposing your bum to the elements.

The Tinkle Belle is not the first of its kind. Many women have used similar devices for years. For instance, the Freshette is also a well-known solution. The difference? The Tinkle Belle is designed to be fully flexible, while maintaining its shape, so it can travel easier than the Freshette and other more fixed options.
