Tips to pee (or poop) Outdoors


  • Follow Leave No Trace principals, and always go at least 200 feet from any trail, camp, or water source.
  • Find the most level, sturdy ground you can.
  • Minimize the amount of vegetation you will urinate on.
  • Face downhill or downslope.
  • Keep your back to the wind!
  • Space out your cat-holes if frequenting an area.


The Full Squat:

  • Spread your feet slightly wider than shoulder width.
  • Keep your feet flat and steady.
  • Pull pants just below your knees (but not too low)
  • Hold the ankles and/or crotch of your pants out of the way.
  • Squat as low as comfortably possible.

The Half Squat:

  • This method is easier on your knee/hip joints… but can be tougher on your quad muscles!
  • Commit to the pee! Give your urine stream some force to keep it from dribbling down your legs.
  • Pee fast… the faster you finish, the faster you can stand back up!

The Assisted Squat:

  • Try carrying a rope or bungee cord with you. You can wrap it around the bottom of a tree and use it to brace yourself.
  • You can also use a tree to lean your back against as you are in a seated position.
  • Finally, you can enlist the help of a good friend or spouse to help hold you in position.
  • See video for demonstration…
