Without a doubt, the Cleanwaste Waste Bags are the Cadillac of poop bags. The centerpiece of the ensemble is a double/triple thick plastic bag which looks suspiciously like a trash compactor bag. The accessories include a hermetically sealed portion of toilet paper and some kitty litter type of pellets to absorb icky liquids. It also includes a tidbit that I mistook for an after dinner mint, which after spitting it out I discovered was an small alcohol swab. A mint and maybe some small reading material would be a nice addition.
My one main complaint about this item is that I failed to read the product description before buying it. Had I done so, I would have seen that the Cleanwaste Waste Bag is supposed to be part of a kit and fits into a port-a-stool (not included) which provides a civilized seating experience. This would explain why the bags will hold roughly five gallons of poo, which seems a bit excessive even with catastrophic Nepalese diarrhea. Butt, in contrast to my penny/loaf pinching friends who scrimped on poo-bags by bringing purloined Doggy-doodoo bags from the neighhorhood dog park, with the Cleanwaste Waste Bag, you can shit your brains out with confidence knowing that overflow will not be an issue. For that matter, you could even share a single bag among friends (last one to touch it gets to carry it out).
I wonder if the BC.com unconditional returns policy applies to leaky Cleanwaste Bags?
Works well. I have a bucket set-up that we use on some trips. We like to use these bags because you can throw them away in and dumpster you come upon. The hand wipe is a nice touch but the toilet paper is straddling the fence of enough or not enough. I guess it would depend on how solid the movement. The double bag system is nice for the pack or hauling. The most important thing is smell containment. It smells a little weird but it's not a poo smell so it is not that noticeable. Very small and compact would fit in a small pocket if needed.
My husband and I camp in a pop-up camping trailer, and as I got older (76) going outside at night got a little iffy and risky. The toilet fits in a corner in the trailer; the bags work perfectly, and I fold the toilet up during the day. The toilet is sturdy -- not like a three legged one I bought a few years back. My purchase this year was for more bags 'cause we're going camping again this summer-- the NH's White Mountains and Baxter State Park!!
They are OK if used in very late fall thru early spring, on the snow, othertimes expect all kinds of rodents and insects to gnaw right thru the green outer bag while you sleep and leave you to deal with the falling-out mess. Pack your feces in a hard plastic or metal can while you sleep, or better yet, put them (tightly packed) inside your sleeping bag, so no creatures get to it, otherwise you will be left with dripping shit on your way out. Or, just ditch the regulations and go without. Unless it's better thought out, it's not going to take space and weight in my pack any longer.
...by the Sequoia National Park. Does not stand to its hype. It's just a plastic garbage bag with some powdered odor neutraliser inside. You poop in it, try to wrap the top somehow and bring it down the mountain or out of the wilderness. If you have to poop again, and you will, open it up and add to the day-old mess you created. And then put it inside your sleeping bag for the night, so as to limit access of curiously hungry mountain creatures. No, thank you. I will just bury it in the soil 6 inches deep next time.
I have used these for years and they where okay. The best toilet for my money now is the Biffy Bag. Solves all the problems you have mentioned. Ample toilet paper,no odor, no mess. Zip lock bag is really strong and you can easily tie the inside bag in a knot. Comfortable and sanitary to use and you do not need a bucket or commode, you tie it around your waste, pull it up between your legs and let gravity do the rest. Sounds weird but works AWESOME. Google up the Biffy Bag and check it out.
