I’ve used Wagg Bags and find them OK for one use–personal squeamishness says I won’t be using them for more than one “drop” per bag (experimentation at home told me this!).
But at one use per bag and about $3 each, Wagg Bags are awfully expensive for trips longer than a few days. Also, because the bags are designed to be used with portable toilet seats (which I don’t use), they are MUCH bigger than necessary for just containing the waste.
I know that suzanneh posted here about the so-called burrito wrap method. I would like to know if anybody has combined the best of all worlds, as I envision it:
- Pour some Poo Powder (the gelling agent) onto a sheet of newspaper on the ground. Do your business on that powder.
- Wrap it all up tightly and place the bundle into an airtight plastic bag.
- Then store the full bags in a waterproof, punctureproof container for transportation. I have a home-made BLM-spec “poop pipe” made of PVC that would serve well for this, IF the bags are not gigantic like the Wagg Bags.
The poop pipe is not long enough to accommodate, say, 10 days of Wagg Bags, but it might fit 10 days of smaller bundles. Has anybody tried this combination?
Am planning some camping trips for this year where pack-it-out is either required or probably should be.
