Special Honors

Stadium Pal This solution from Stadium Pal has been serving concert-goers and sports season ticket holders since 1998. The male version comes with external catheters, an 18-inch hose, and a durable bag to collect urine. The Stadium Gal version is discreet, with an odor-containing pouch and a drainage valve. stadiumpal.com

Johnny on the Spot Cart This urinal isn’t small and lightweight like most of the models on the list, but it’s portable in the sense that you can easily transport it to a location that won’t accommodate a standard porta potty. The cart is about three feet tall, with a wide bowl that contains spills and built-in wheels on the base. johnnyonthespot.com

Editor's Notes

September 27, 2019:

Removed the Gloveleya Flexible Toilet as it was no longer available. After identifying myriad instances of leaking issues that seemed to occur after only a few uses, we opted to eliminate the Advantage Urinal System as well.

With the Outfandia Mobile, on the other hand, plenty of positive attributes stood out to us, prompting its rise in the rankings. We noted its tight, reliable seal (which, unfortunately, isn’t as common as you may think with these devices), and users seem to love that it makes for a mess-free experience.

Of the new additions, the Tilcare Chamber is a relatively heavy-duty option that won’t easily succumb to wear and tear. We noted one particularly handy feature: you can hang it on a bedrail using its well-placed handle. The Venus to Mars Female is a highly effective model for women, and its compact, lightweight design makes it easy to conceal and travel with.
