Great, reliable product! I definitely recommend doing a few trial runs at home (or even in the shower if you're nervous/don't feel like doing an unexpected load of laundry LOL) because there is a bit of a learning curve to finding the right angle, but once you figure it out it's super handy.
The open-top design makes it super easy to clean as well, and there's less opportunity for moisture to get trapped and get funky. I also appreciate that the design/branding isn't particularly gendered, because while I'm not looking for a hyper-realistic STP, using one heavily marketed towards cis women would be a bit dysporia-inducing.
I keep mine in a little pouch with some sheets of biodegradable toilet paper and a travel bottle of hand sanitizer, and take it with me if I know I'll be out somewhere with unreliable bathroom access! Overall a great product.
Was very easy to use, did not make any kind of mess on the first attempt. Also easy to clean and was only $20; worth the money.
10/10 I would recommend
Easy to use at home and outdoors and easy to clean. Too large and rigid to use on the go/ stealthily for me.
I have been hiking and as the seasons changed, it was beginning to get harder to find bushes to squat behind. Then the snow came and I did not want to drop trou in -15 C weather.
This came recommended by writers at Outside Magazine, but by other outdoor folks too. I did some practice runs at home, because I did not want to trial this during a 18 km winter hike. Highly recommend those at-home practice runs to build your confidence. Dress as you normally would for your outdoor activity so you can figure out what works for you. For me that means pulling my outdoor layer down around my butt and just shifting my other layers down slightly to put this in place.
I keep it in a plastic sealable bag, zippered into an outside pocket for easy access. I've rinsed it using water but also snow. The only struggle I have is telling my brain that it's ok to pee while we're standing up but this is just going to take practice.
As a enby person, I super appreciate the non-gendered packaging and name.
I bought the pstyle for travel, camping, and hikes. Now I don't have to worry about finding places to hide, whether I can physically squat, have enough toilet paper, or whether to stay hydrated vs having to pee. It's easy to use because of the rigid plastic and longer length. Lightweight, but not the smallest thing to pack.
