Best Overall Female Urination Device:

PSTYLE

Price: $11.99

See on AMAZON
female urination device pstyle

PROS:

✅ Easy to use

✅ Price

✅ Low risk of overflow

CONS:

❌ Bulky

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Hard Plastic
  • Disposable/Reusable: Reusable
  • Weight: 0.8 oz (0.05 lbs)

The Pstyle bucks the trend by ditching the funnel and using a half-pipe shape to collect and direct pee. The hard plastic allows you to make a firm seal so you don't leak and the form factor lends itself to wiping off those last remaining drips. We love that the design is easy for anyone to use and it is unlikely to overflow. The only drawback? It's a bit on the bulky side.


Best Lightweight Female Urination Device:

PIBELLA

Price: $19

See on REI See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Lightweight

✅ Discreet

✅ No need for toilet paper

CONS:

❌ Takes practice

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Hard Plastic
  • Disposable/Reusable: Reusable
  • Weight: 0.8 oz (0.05 lbs)

Unlike the PStyle which uses a large slide to direct your pee, the Pibella has a very narrow opening that is designed to cover only the urethral area. We found that this minimizes any chance of overflow when lined up correctly. However, the same narrow design that minimizes spillage, also makes it challenging to use. You need to practice a lot to find the correct position to catch the flow.


Best Disposable/Reusable Female Urination Device:

SANIGIRL

Price: $11.99-$35.97

See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Folds flat

✅ Recyclable

✅ No cleaning required

CONS:

❌ Cost can add up

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Cardboard
  • Disposable/Reusable: Disposable
  • Weight: 2.3-11.04 oz (0.14-0.69 lbs)

The SaniGirl is a disposable and recyclable FUD that folds flat so you can carry it easily in your purse, pack, or pocket no matter where you are going. We found that these little paper FUDs are a great option for long distance runners who need to carry as little as possible on them or thru-hikers who are trying to shave off as many ounces as possible. Some reviewers have stated that they carefully dry them off and that doing so enables them to get multiple uses out of each device.


Best Female Urination Device Accessory:

KULA CLOTH

Price: $20

See on GARAGE GROWN GEAR See on REI
kula pee cloth

PROS:

✅ Antimicrobial

✅ Fun colors

✅ LNT friendly

CONS:

❌ Snap closure design

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Reusable Fabric
  • Disposable/Reusable: Accessory
  • Weight: 0.4 oz (0.03 lbs)

The Kula Cloth is the first antimicrobial pee cloth ever created, born out of a need for a sustainable option to stay clean and dry out in nature. The absorbent side is made with an antimicrobial silver-infused textile blend that wicks away moisture, and the other side is waterproof, so your hands always stay dry.

After using, just snap it to your pack and let it air dry. You also have the option of using the double snap to fold the cloth in half so that the “wiping” side stays hidden; however, we found that the double snap design can take precious seconds to undo when in a hurry.


Most Packable Female Urination Device:

PEE POCKET

Price: $3.99-$29.99

See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Packable

✅ No mess

CONS:

❌ Occasionally splits open

❌ Cost can add up

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Cardboard
  • Disposable/Reusable: Disposable
  • Weight: 0.96 oz (0.06 lbs)

The Pee Pocket is a collapsible funnel that is made from leakproof cardboard. We like that it folds flat making it easy to toss in your pocket before nature calls. Once you are at your “watering spot”, the Pee Pocket pops open into an oval-shaped funnel that you can use and then dispose of when you return home. We did note that occasionally the seam holding it together splits open, but the device is still usable when this happens.


The Other Noteworthy Models

The Tinkle Belle

Price: $27.50

See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Easy to use

✅ Squeegee ability

CONS:

❌ Cleanliness

❌ Weight

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Flexible Spout, Hard Plastic Body
  • Disposable/Reusable: Reusable
  • Weight: 1.8 oz (0.11 lbs)

The Tinkle Belle features a narrow profile made with a soft spout attached to a hard plastic shell that you can press against your body without worrying that the device will collapse and cause a mess. A key feature is that it conveniently folds down to a small size (about 5.5"x1.5"x2") for easy storage in the accompanying pouch.

However, we found that the same design that makes it easy to store also makes it less clean to use. Fortunately, there’s no need for toilet paper— the back of the device has a built-in “squeegee-like” tip that dries you off without needing to wipe!


Go-Girl

Price: $14.99

See on MOOSEJAW See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Folds up small

✅ Comfortable on body

CONS:

❌ Weight

❌ Problems with overflow

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Flexible Silicone
  • Disposable/Reusable: Reusable
  • Weight: 1.6 oz (0.1 lbs)

Go-Girl is probably the best-known FUD and can be found in the camping section in Walmart stores around the country. The silicone funnel is flexible, so you can shape the device to provide a relatively large urinal. Because it is wide, you may need to pull your pants down further than is comfortable, especially in mixed company. We found that because it flexes so easily, you need to be careful not to lose your seal when you adjust your grip. We like that It folds easily back into a compact tube that can be used to store it discreetly in your pack.


Sunany

Price: $13.99

See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Large funnel

✅ Extension tube included

CONS:

❌ Doesn’t fit inside pants

❌ Can collapse and spill

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Flexible Silicone
  • Disposable/Reusable: Reusable
  • Weight: 3.2 oz (0.2 lbs)

The Sunany comes in six different colors and is similar in style to the Go-Girl but is made with a narrower body and comes with a 4.75-inch extension tube at no extra cost. We appreciate that you also get a storage pouch to store it in when not being used. It is important to note that the bag is not waterproof so you have to make sure to dry the Sunany off well before putting it away.


SheWee

Price: $16.50

See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Colorful

✅ Squeegee remaining drips away

CONS:

❌ High overflow risk

❌ Weight

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Hard Plastic
  • Disposable/Reusable: Reusable
  • Weight: 3.5 oz (0.22 lbs)

The SheWee is a rigid funnel made of hard plastic that repels urine. It is narrow, making it easy to pack, but it is one of the heavier options we tested. Your aim also has to be good because the funnel is on the smaller size. We found that flow control is essential, release too much too soon and you may be soaking in your own pee.


Freshette

Price: $24.95

See on REI See on AMAZON

PROS:

✅ Extension tube options

✅ Large funnel

CONS:

❌ Bulky

❌ Pull pants down to use

KEY SPECS

  • Style: Hard Plastic
  • Disposable/Reusable: Reusable
  • Weight: 1.2 oz (0.08 lbs)

The Freshette is a hard plastic funnel with a retractable tube that makes it more compact than the one-piece pee funnels. It comes with a 5-inch extension tube but we appreciate that you can purchase 36-inch and 48-inch extension tubes. This comes in handy when it’s too cold to get out of the tent or if you’re on a really long road trip. We like that it has a broader funnel portion which provides ample room for peeing without overflowing the device, but this size can make it bulky to pack even with the retractable tube.


Key Factors To Consider When Choosing

Weight & Packability

Pee funnels come in all shapes, sizes, and weights. Some are rigid plastic and hold their shape which allows you to position them under your clothing. They won't collapse in midstream which reduces your chance of peeing all over yourself. Because they cannot be folded, they will take up a fair amount of space in your pack.

Other FUDs are made with flexible silicone that can fold up into a small container. This flexibility is great for storage, but they can easily collapse and lose their seal if you squeeze them too much.

Best Models for Weight & Packability:

Ease of Use

Women start using a pee funnel because it is convenient. Instead of stripping off layers of clothing or removing climbing gear, they can merely stand near a tree with their pee funnel and urinate standing up. It also provides some modesty when hiking or climbing in mixed company.

When selecting a FUD, make sure to read about the care and storage guidelines indicated for each. For example, the GoGirl can be folded into a small size, placed inside a plastic baggy, and inserted back into the tube that it came in. The Pibella is made of hard plastic so cannot be folded into a smaller size, but it does come with a zip pouch.

Best Models for Ease of Use:

Messiness

Every FUD encourages the same thing: practice makes perfect! Some FUDs, such as the SheWee, have a narrow funnel so you must make sure to have it positioned appropriately to avoid a mess. Others, such as the Go Girl, must be held at a certain angle to create a seal effectively otherwise you may experience leaks.

If you don’t want to worry about carrying around a FUD after using it, consider a recyclable disposable option such as the SaniGirl. The best way to avoid a mess is to practice in your shower at home so you get the feel for your FUD and how to position it.

Least Messy Models:


Other Things to Consider

Durability

Each FUD we reviewed is constructed differently, lending some to more durability than others. Hard plastic devices tend to weather time better than pliable options, however, they tend to be heavier and less discrete as they can’t be folded.

To maximize the lifespan of the product, make sure to read the care and storage guidelines for your chosen device. If the device is made of silicone, make sure it is made of a medical-grade material as this lasts longer and is meant to be used against the body often.

Comfort

Some comfort considerations include whether you will be comfortable with the size, shape and how it is meant to be held when wearing your hiking clothing. Certain models can be used just by unzipping the fly where other devices will require you to pull your pants down a bit.

For example, form-fitting pants may work better with a narrower device as it will require less awkward movements. One caveat to bear in mind is that what might be comfortable for one person may not be for the next based on individual anatomy.

Cleanliness

Cleanliness in the backcountry is challenging, but oh so necessary. You need to keep yourself and your FUD clean and dry so you don't smell like old urine or, even worse, develop a nasty infection. Most pee funnels are made from materials that shed urine, but you still should run water through the FUD to remove any remaining pee. Dry it before putting it away inside your pack or air dry it by storing it in a breathable bag on the outside of your backpack.

How to Use a FUD?

With a FUD, you merely unzipper your pants, and move your underwear to the side or pull it down from the front. You then place the FUD over your private area and get a tight seal, so there is no leakage. Then you must relax and start peeing. Be mindful of controlling your flow, so you don't overflow the funnel of the device.

Once you are done, you just rinse the FUD with a bit of water from your water bottle to clean it. Then shake it dry, pop it back into its storage pouch and place it in an easily accessible part of your pack.

A Few More Tips

Squatting comes naturally, but standing while peeing takes some practice. Use the FUD in the shower and on short hikes or climbs, so you know how to get the best fit to prevent a leakage. Don't wait until you are 20 miles into the woods to find out you can't use the FUD without peeing all over yourself. If one type of pee funnel doesn't work, try a different style of FUD. And remember to pee downwind, so you don't get splattered.

Leave No Trace: It goes without saying. Whether you squat or stand up, you should follow leave no trace principles by peeing at least 200 feet from a water source, trail or campsite. This keeps a safe distance between your waste and others who are walking the same path.
