LOL.

I think walmart sells them in 4-packs in the automotive section for about $20.

The idea seems alright. But I can just use the rok straps if I wanted to try this.

She's doing it wrong. Lean against the tree, no strap required.

If you're that lazy that you need a big belt to hold you up at a tree to take a dump, then you shouldn't be hiking in the first place. Shitting with pack on? Are they serious? I wonder if the inventor ever shit in the woods before while hiking?

Neat idea. I'm young enough that I don't have a problem squatting if I'm in the woods. Could be something I might be interested in in a few decades when my joints aren't as young though. This being said, a small cambuckle strap would likely do just as well for a fraction of the cost (I assume) and weight.

Of course the strap and crap concept is nothing new, a few years back I'm ashamed to say that I lost a considerable amount of money investing in an item with a similar aim... The Bungee Dump.
Looking back with 50 /50 hindsight, I suppose anything involving up and down movement and answering the call of nature coupled with a hybrid elastic which was derived from super ball technology was always doomed to end in a smelly messy failure, add a touch of wind, and no not what your thinking although that did add to the up and down propulsion, I'm talking wind as in gale force wind, which not only had the poor tester rising and falling and at one time looping the loop at a height of 20 feet! but violently swaying from side to side, suffice to say that there was crap and puke everywhere spread out in a wide arc.
The icing on the cake came when the Royal Parks Police arrest the user for indecent exposure, wilfully destroying and defacing Her Majesties property in excrement, and using foul and abusive language in a public place (you try bungee dumping in a high wind and not letting the odd Anglo Saxon word escape).
So that was that, anyway there was one final nail in the coffin, the application to Dragons Den was turned down at the interview stage when one of the producers was hospitalised from breaking a rib laughing at the invention!




Is it me or is the above just the rantings of a deranged mind?

I go to the woods to avoid the kind of people who would bring something like this to the woods.
