Stuck in a survival situation for more than a couple of hours and wondering where to use the bathroom. That is where these portable toilets come in handy. Needless to say, these portable toilets will be an important addition to your bug out bag which ensures your business is done with minimal hassle. I will be discussing some of the portable toilets and their features
Most of the portable toilets have a bag attached to them which is pre-treated with chemicals. The chemicals help the waste in breaking down into non-hazardous materials. There are many bags that are not pre-treated. For such bags, you can buy the chemicals separately and use them. I know this step seems easy to skip but it has consequences. When the wastes are not disposed of properly it will stink and it also attracts predators when you are stuck in the wild.
By now, you are aware of camp toilets. You must be wondering which are the few good brands to be considered while buying.
Here is the list of the few to ease your choice:
Reliance Luggable Loo
One of the highest-rated portable toilets, The Reliance Luggable Loo is a simple yet in demand, product. It comes with a five-gallon bucket with a toilet seat attached to it on the top. They also produce their own bags, the Double Doodie Bag, These bags are pre-treated with chemicals so that waste can be broken down.
The Reliance Luggable Loo weighs three pounds and costs under $30. The bags are $18 for a pack of six.
Cleanwaste GO Anywhere Portable Toilet Seat
The Cleanwaste GO Anywhere Portable Toilet Seat can hold up to 500 pounds of weight and is a tripod-style portable toilet. A bag comes with the seat which is pre-treated with bio gel to break down the waste. You can get this for $65. The bags are available in packs of 12 for $34.
It is easy to clean and won’t let you come in contact with waste. The total weight of the briefcase is seven pounds.
Green Elephant Folding Commode
A perfect bug out bag material, ‘The Green Elephant Folding Commode’ is another high rated portable toilet. You can easily fold it and strap it to the back of your pack. Any eight-gallon bag can be used along with this. The weight of The Green Elephant is 3.5 pounds and you would need to buy the chemicals separately to break down the waste.
SereneLife Portable Toilet
If you are looking for luxury then The SereneLife Portable Toilet would be your best choice. With a capacity of 5.3 gallons of water, this looks like any regular toilet. The SereneLife Portable Toilet uses internal pistons to flush the waste. You will feel the comfort of home with this portable toilet option.
Luxury has its drawbacks too. It weighs 11.25 which will add a lot of weight to your bug-out bag. It does not have any internal bags either. You will need to keep cleaning it in between your uses. You can consider this option if you have plans to be at a place for a while. This is certainly not a preferred option when you are on the move.
If you need to bug out of society, you are still going to need to use the bathroom.
There are many branded portable toilet options available in the market. The best portable toilet for you will really depend on two things; 1. your preference and 2. the weight you are willing to carry with your backpack.
