These are a better idea....especially as you don't even need to get out of your sleeping bag....

Well, I'm afraid that I resort to sturdy placky bags after having three foldup shovels nicked!  I wouldn't be too fussed about the "seat" but the gel might be a good idea for those of use who end up being out for up to 18 hours in a forest with HUGE ditches between us and  generally all wet so you're never sure about anything getting into watercourses!

Are the gel/bags available separately?

we use our Kampa fridge as a loo, section off one side from the food/drink, a cheap loo seat fits nicely on the top,Ideal for nightime poos / wees. Fridge keeps the deposits well until disposal.
  This is a wee joke right?

Dunno about a wee joke. More of a crappy joke methinks!

The weird thing is.... our local council has decided that it's ok for dog turds to go in the normal rubbish bins and that dog poo bins are no longer required. From the Brighton and Hove Sh1tty Council website

"Dog waste

Dog waste can be bagged and put into any of the city's litter and/or dog waste bins. "

The content of dog poo bins has to be treated as clinical waste and is expensive to get rid of (well, that was Lewes DC's excuse for not putting a dog poo bin round my way). By mixing the poo with normal rubbish, I daresay they save a lot of money.

I did a fairly in-depth online investigation of about 5 different camping loos some time last year.

Eventually, advice from this forum, combined with limited space (not wanting whole car/tent to be filled with a toilet), wild(ish) protest camping, price (not wanting to waste holiday money on a loo), environmental consideration (eg. not polluting the planet with chemicals) and disposability lead us to the Highlander Campa Loo.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Highlander-Campa-Loo-Economy-Field-Toilet/dp/B001NFGMNU

If you combine this with corn starch bags (I think 15 litres is about the right size, because we're using 10 litre ones which don't entirely tuck over the seat), you can dig a hole and bury them (presuming you're somewhere wild). They bio-degrade in about 6 weeks. Even if you can't bury them, the cornstarch bags can be disposed of anywhere that you could throw away nappies and they won't harm the environment when they do disintegrate.

You're joking, right?

Please tell me you're joking.......

Someone, anyone, tell me they're joking....

Just don't offer me a nice cold beer from your Kampa fridge.

We bought one of these for use in our tent. Ideal if you tend to wake up during the night for a wee, saves walking across the field for the loo, and thereby get cold. Our son can use it and not wake us up. We dont use it for solid wastes as I wouldn't want the smell hanging around.Can recommend it.
