5 Stars. Makes It Easy to "Go" on the Go!
So easy to use! I love that you can use any brand of zip lock baggie. If you are somewhere that you can't dump the bag out, a handful of kitty litter in the bag makes it less prone to spill/leak. You can pre-fill a baggie or two prior to leaving home. The pine pellet litter works best for this. The customer service of this company is fantastic. My order was delayed slightly because the color I ordered was out of stock, so they gave me a second one for free.

5 Stars. Works Great! Useful too!!!
Great gadget a must have for every mom with a young daughter. I have always felt that most public restrooms are fairly dirty. With this device I can avoid touching all the things in a public restroom that are dirty! I take this into the stall and instead of using the dirty toilet I use GOTTATINKLE it's convenient and very easy to use. My daughter has never had to sit on a dirty public toilet seat and I find she is able to use this device with ease. We have used it at sporting events, restaurants, school and for travelling. I would highly recommend this based on its ease of use and price.

5 Stars ... A Trucker Gal's Pal
Ok, it is a bit of a silly concept. But pee is silly. Getting it all over yourself is even sillier. As a novice woman trucker, I've been looking for a solution to the problem of pee. Out on the road, one can't always find a secluded, safe place to do one's duty to nature. I surveyed just about every device for pee disposal and found most of them wanting. No, I can't always get some gloves on and play with a rubber funnel. I need something disposable. But it also has to dispose of itself with minimal fuss and little obvious use. Can you see waving a pink funnel covered in old pee around in a truck stop bathroom, trying to clean it in the sink? Or using a cardboard funnel to pee in an old soda bottle, one hand holding each, then somehow disposing of both? No, I can't either. And since both would require plastic bags to store them in until one reached said bathroom, it is an obvious step to cut out the middle man. So to speak.
So I've given this Gotta Tinkle a go, and found it superb. It really does work as one would hope. It will take some getting used to peeing in a slight crouch stand instead of sitting, but it doesn't feel dangerous. Trying to hold the baggies up without the device, one would quickly find the back end to, uh, sag dangerously. Too big an opening, and there is likewise spillage. But Gotta is just perfect. No dribble, no nothing, just a silly bag of pee on a stick. The device is plastic, but pretty firm. I didn't worry about it breaking as I applied it. Dump the pee somewhere, or close it up for tossing later. It really does work as the ad says. To find such an elegant solution to emergency peeing is, well, a relief.
The baggies which come with the device are sandwich size. They do, one must say, look of far better quality than the cheapo sandwich bags one mostly gets for school lunches. These don't leak at all. We don't want leaks. So it really should be stressed that one should get extra bags of equal quality.
This really is a thing any out and about woman should keep in her glove compartment, or even a purse. Honestly, I wish I had this years ago.

GottaTinkle! Saved Me Today!

Best In Its Class
Bought this as a gift for my sister who traveled to Africa and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. No restrooms so thought this would work well. Did a lot of research on different products and this seemed the best fit. Not only is it flat for easy storage and carrying, you use it with pretty much any sandwich bag. Huge plus to not have to buy special bags! She said it worked great and she used it a ton!
Amazon Customer (03/30/16)
Brilliant idea and item! Thank you for making such a great item. I definitely recommend this if you can't stand those nasty public bathrooms. It is also so economical compared to other similar concept items on the market, and ziploc bags are very easy to buy for replacement.

What A Handly Little Item
What a handy little item. Very simple design, once you practice a time or two you will master this and it should last forever. I am 63 years old with severe arthritis and I must use a handicap toilet, can't always find one. With this if you can stand you can make it work.

Excellent Product. Cannot Say Enough Good Things About It!
PROS: Works with PANTS too! Haven't had a spill using it yet! This would also be great for anyone that frequently stays in the hospital and doesn't want to use a bed pan or have to be helped by a nurse to use one. Also this is good for those times when your urine tends to spray a bit because it cannot escape. The size is great too: it fits in my 7 inch long purse and fits slanted in my jeans back pocket too.
CONS: I purchased the dark brown case product and the product itself is great, but I do wish they didn't put the "GottaTinkle!" logo on the product in pink and blue since it is supposed to be a discreet device. It's not super noticeable but I do wish it wasn't there at all so that when it rolls around in my purse no one will know what it is.
HOW TO USE IT: I use the cheap store brand sandwich bags with the zip and fold it over the device, then simply unbutton your pants and let your waist band fall to mid thigh or above the knee level, then press the back part of the device (baggie attached) against your body (when I 1st started learning to use it, this required 2 hands) and urinate. Once done pour out the urine in the toilet and throw away the plastic baggie.
THE COMPETITION: I tried other FUDs like: the "Go Girl" and the "P Style" and they are just not as concealable and convenient as this one is. The "Go Girl" was not suitable for persons that have a lot of urine at once/ pee fast like I do. It backed up and it left a mess for me to clean. The "P Style" is way to big to conceal day to day.
Whenever I'm out of my home, the "GottaTinkle!" is the winner all the way and helps keep my safe from yucky womens' restrooms!

It's Clean, It's Easy for Little Girls!
I got this device for my girls when we go on vacation or camping. We seem to always have an emergency when we can't find a bathroom quick enough and the GottaTinkle solves the problem. It's easy to use and my girls like it better than some of those dirty bathrooms while on the road. It's clean, it's easy, and priced for anybody.

11 Cool Inventions that Make Adventure Travel Better
Women are very fond of clean bathrooms. The open road seldom accommodates that fondness. Whether it's a disgusting porta potty at a county fair or a pit outhouse in South America, women and girls are constantly struggling to keep their bodies out of contact with unsanitary facilities. The Gotta Tinkle is one of the simplest "pee anywhere standing up for ladies" devices on the market. It's essentially an anatomically formed clip that fits comfortably against a lady's delicate areas. The clip securely holds a regular household plastic baggie (or you can buy a biodegradable one). After use, the contents can be dumped anywhere appropriate, the bag thrown away, and no disgusting toilet need ever have been be involved.

5 Stars ... Worth Every Penny!
When I'm not working, my life revolves around fishing and travel. In my hobbies, bathroom breaks are often an adventure in of themselves. I have spent money on everything from a female funnel to a portable toilet seat (I wish I was exaggerating). Not only has this been a waste of money, it has lead to my friends and family having plenty of laughs at my expense.
... I was intrigued by the design and the lack of, "ick factor" ... so I went for it. [GottaTinkle] was worth every penny! I first used the device at a concert tailgate. The putrid smell of a Port-o-Potty is enough to send me running. I was beyond relived when my Gotta Tinkle came through for me! It was so easy to use, discrete, clean, and quick! No mess, no drama, no embarrassment! Love!
... I have since used GottaTinkle on the boat during a fishing trip. The boat has a tiny bathroom and it is a pain to use. As an avid angler, I maximized my time by using the GottaTinkle and went back to catching! My only complaint is that my friends kept asking to use it. Even the guys were interested in it for road trips!
GottaTinkle is now in my suitcase as I prepare to head down to the Dominican Republic for a little fishing ...!

Great Product! – 5 Stars!
I love GottaTinkle.
Let’s face it ladies, squatting over a toilet is not easy, sometimes my legs get tired from holding this position, and then what’s worse, is the urine stream splitting in two or three and missing the toilet all together or getting on my leg. With GottaTinkle, I never have to worry about missing the toilet or fatigue from prolonged squatting. Also, it is easy to use and saves me the time and trouble of having to cover the toilet seat with pieces of toilet paper!
Being in the medical field, I love the practical use of collecting urine samples easily. Also, it has helped me with my own monitoring of how hydrated I am. I am so busy that I often forget to drink water during the workday. Using GottaTinkle gives me the ability to actually see how hydrated I am and reminds me to keep up my fluids.
Most of all, I love GottaTinkle because I can bring it anywhere. I love to travel and have been to South America and Europe. I love having an alternative to squatting over a dirty toilet seat on a plane, train, restaurant or other remote location.
I actually witnessed a Dad who was taking his little daughter to use the bathroom, but he refused to go in as he pointed to the toilet seat having urine on it. It was the only toilet available on our train car, so he walked to the next train car. Unfortunately, he didn’t speak English, but I definitely would have told him about GottaTinkle. I ended up using that dirty available bathroom with my GottaTinkle without a wait or a problem!

Waaay Better Than Finding a Discreet Tree!
Takes some practice, when in a pickle this is a good option. Especially compared to other urinal options as any splash factors are contained. I've found quart size baggies (or bigger) for those girls who really gotta go! I keep one in my purse always.

It Is An Excellent Invention
(Google Translation of Review in Spanish)
GottaTinkle! has a very simple appearance compared to other devices, but I must say it's a great invention, especially for girls! I love it. It is extremely simple to use. Unlike other [female urination devices], it is good for females of all ages, but especially, for daughters to use at school; adolescents and young people who are starting out, for comfort and protection ... From my first use, I had no accidents. I like the logo. The carrying bag comes in four colors: white, black, pink and teal ... Customer service is excellent. This product fits comfortably in many places, including a purse, backpack, lunch box, pocket ... It's very convenient and comfortable to use. I recommend it to anyone, especially parents who have girls. I'm sure it will be used a lot. Read full review at Caminando Entre Nubes.

Es Una Excelente Invención
GottaTinkle! tiene una apariencia muy sencilla comparada a otros dispositivos, pero tengo que decir que es una excelente invención, SOBRE TODO PARA LAS NIÑAS! Me ha encantado, pues es extremadamente sencillo de utilizar.
Al contrario de otros (para orinar de pie), esté sería muy práctico para féminas de todas las edades, pero muy en especial, para regalarle a sus hijas que van a la escuela; adolescentes y jóvenes que están comenzando a salir, por su comodidad y protección ... Desde mi primer uso, no he tenido accidentes. Me gusta su logo. Tiene 4 colores a escoger de bolso para transportarlo: blanco, negro, rosa y teal ... El servicio al cliente, excelente. Éste producto cabe cómodamente en muchos sitios: desde la cartera, mochila, lonchera, bolsillo... Es muy práctico y cómodo de utilizar. A ojos cerrados se lo recomiendo a cualquiera, sobre todo a los padres que tienen niñas. Yo personalmente estoy segura que le daré muchísimo uso. Leer reseña completa at Caminando Entre Nubes

Camping Essential ... Especially with Kids
We took GottaTinkle! with us on our annual summer camping trip to North Carolina. The device was great on the long way up from Florida, we used it at rest-stops and even in the car for a night-time emergency when we were too far away from any bathrooms. My daughters love how easy it is to use and love not having to sit on wet or dirty toilets. We used it on all of our hikes and when we went fishing on a rented boat - the girls did not want to jump in the cold water just to pee.
At our campsite we put up a small bathroom tent with a foldable toilet behind our tent. If we only needed to pee, we simply used GottaTinkle! which was way cheaper than the toilet bags and much simpler to toss out afterwards. No scary night runs to an icky outhouse in the middle of the night!

A Wonderful Addition to Any
Sandi Bird Aldridge, a FEMA first responder, nurse, international traveler, survivalist, and author of The Amateur Prepper’s Pocket Guide to Creating an Emergency Plan has endorsed GottaTinkle! Female Urination Device as a "wonderful addition to any woman’s Go-Bag".
Amateur Prepper's Pocket Guide to Creating an Emergency Plan (July 2014) - Pg. 61-62 (07/27/2014)
I Strongly Endorse This Product
I am Board Certified in Urology and a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons, and have been practicing Urology for the past thirty-six years.
I am a father of two and have three granddaughters ages 7 through 11.
I have personally seen how my granddaughters would often go hours and hours without voiding (pee'ing) because of unsanitary facilities (dirty bathrooms). This can result in serious health problems including increased risk of urinary tract infections and other medical conditions.
GottaTinkle! - a hand-held female urination device - has been a great help which I fully endorse as it is compact, easy to use, hygienic, and has been embraced by my grandchildren who are no longer reluctant to relieve themselves while away from home (whether in public bathrooms or while camping, etc. when no bathrooms are available).
I have also seen how useful GottaTinkle! is for active women who often need to go when there are no bathrooms available, and for others who have difficulty voiding due to health matters.
I also believe that GottaTinkle! would be a blessing for caregivers of infirmed patients - caring for them at home, in nursing homes, and hospitals.
For the price, convenience, and all of the reasons referenced above, I strongly endorse this product!

Finally, a Device That Lets You Go Naturally! So Excited
Purchased GottaTinkle! for outdoor events - such as sporting events, concerts, fairs & festivals. We have an annual golf memorial and a bunch of us women sit at the 17th hole for hours. It is quite a hike to the nearest bathroom and we have gotten accustomed to going out into the creepy woods hoping there's no animals, lol. GottaTinkle makes it so much easier, it's a must have! 5 stars

I Absolutely Love This Product!
I absolutely love this product. I use GottaTinkle! almost every weekend with my girls - whether running errands, at dinner, or on a road trip, camping, etc. It is simply great not to have to worry about dirty toilets or the possibility that there may not even be a toilet around (while camping or on our small boat).

I Love the Product
I love the product. I didn't have the leaking problem with it like I do with the other brand that I use. I highly recommend the product for any females stuck using the bathroom away from home ... I will be using it on mission trips and while hiking, as well as keeping one in my car for travel emergencies.

Great Product for Women & Girls!
And, Fathers Too!!!
I love this product. I have three girls. It has always been so difficult when we go out for the day, as one of our girls always seems to have to pee at the worst time. I hate using public bathrooms because they are usually disgusting and I don't have the patience to wrestle with cheap toilet paper to cover the toilet for my kids. With GottaTinkle, they can just pee right into the bag (by themselves) and neither of us have to touch the toilet. All I have to do is wait for them to finish.
It's so easy for them, they actually used it inside my SUV or on our fishing boat - which does not have a bathroom. They are not always keen on jumping into the middle of the ocean just to pee.
I have also use the product on car trips (love avoiding the long lines at rest stops) and when we go camping. The girls just go to the bathroom right inside the tent, great when it's night time or raining.
Although I initially started with just one that we shared (it never gets dirty because the collection bag wraps around it and gets tossed), my 10 year old has her own now because she likes to carry it around. Without a doubt, a superior product, especially for dads with young girls who hate grime and germs.

GottaTinkle is Terrific! 5 Stars
... worked well in Vietnam (some of the bathrooms were primitive).
Barbara - Plantation, Florida (05/17/14)
Easy 'Pee'-sy I Loved It!
I used it for the first time camping at a Boy Scout training event. It was so cold outside and I was so happy that I didn't have to get my shoes and coat on to go outside to tinkle, even though the bathroom was in a building.
I was able to stay on my knees in the tent and confidently tinkle, zip the bag, put it in a shopping bag outside the door of my tent under the rain fly.
I did this twice during the night and in the morning I took it to the bathroom emptied the zip locks into the toilet, threw the bags away, washed my hands & done. Easy "pee"-sy. I loved it!
Michele - Millbury, Massachusetts (04/19/14)

This Device Fit My Needs Perfectly
On a previous hike on the AT (Appalachian Trail), I did not want to leave my tent through the night and go in the woods to tinkle. On my upcoming AT hike, I did not want to go through that ordeal again. I started searching the internet and came across several options. I saw a problem with the other products with having to still tinkle outside the tent and having to sanitize the device. Your product alleviates that and it is smaller and less bulky (space is at a premium when your backpacking). Needless to say, I'll be carrying this on my 3 week hike on the Appalachian Trail!
PS: You should try to get outdoor gear stores to carry your product. I can't be the only one that sees a need for it."
Janet - McCalla, Alabama (03/27/14)
This Product Is Amazing!
"I purchased it for a recent trip to the Middle East and used it successfully. It was so easy to use and a nice sanitary option in not so nice public restrooms and squat toilets. One of the women on my trip actually used it on our tour bus during an emergency tinkle event and was so thankful that I brought GottaTinkle! along!"

Toni - Marietta, Georgia (02/08/14)
Great for Camping Trips!!!
"We took this with us on our camping trip last year. I knew it would come in handy, but really it was more of a must have. During the day, we used it on hikes and on the long empty roads. At night, it allowed us to use our tent, where we felt safe, rather than wandering through the dark scary woods to an even creepier and stinky Porto potty filled with spiders. It was awesome. So quick and easy. I would highly recommend this device to anyone."
MomRocks - Hollywood, Florida (02/01/2014)
This Thing Works Great!
"I bought this after not being allowed to enter a concert with my other brand funnel in my pocket. I had to throw it out or put it in my car. "Weird" objects aren't allowed because they don't want people throwing them on stage..you're not even allowed bottle caps on your water bottles.
This thing works great. I stuck it in my bra strap and the next arena didn't even feel it when I got patted down before entering. I put some makeup in a baggie and nobody cared that I had baggies in my pocket."
"Some people smuggle drugs..others smuggle urine devices. I no longer have to buy beer I won't drink just so they'll give me a cup to pee in."
