FUDs are funnels that let women pee standing up. We tried most brands to report back on the pros and cons of each model. Plus: Tips on how to use them.
Best use: Long distance backpacking or peeing discreetly
Tester notes: “As a long-distance backpacker, I prioritize size, weight, reliability, and durability over everything else, and that’s why the Pibella is my number one pick. It is nearly weightless, small enough to fit in the hip-pocket of my pack, and made from a hard plastic that seems to withstand a lot of abuse. It’s also incredibly discreet. The Pibella is different than the other FUDs in one major way: The side of the device that meets your body is almost as small as the spout on the other end. In other words, you’re peeing into a straw.
That visual is enough to discomfort most ladies who don’t want wet hiking pants, but I wouldn’t be writing this if it didn’t also miraculously work. The end of the Pibella which meets your body inserts just enough to feel reassuring but not invasive: You will know beyond a doubt when it’s in the right spot to work. At the beginning of my trials, I was certain this would leak, but by the end my thinking had reversed. There’s a bigger learning curve, but I think it’s well worth getting acquainted with the Pibella when it comes time to head out on the trail.” –
