Ok do you shit in the tube? Shit in the bag> or shit in the woods and pick it up with the bag and put it in the tube. Vital info....instructions unclear. Got my dick stuck in it.

I guess ideally you shit in the bag but it’s probably ok to shit on the ground and then pick it up. The tube is just for a less stinky transport.

Trails become surrounded by land mines

This!

I'm not gonna go hiking with a piece of equipment that is going to easily take up 20% of the weight I want to carry.  I was on Isle Royale for 7 days and I think I only took a dump twice.  Both times in a pit.  We had a few in our party that went off into the woods and dug a cat hole.

I don’t think people often shit right on the trail. I’ve never seen it anyway. But it can get to be messy just off to the side. Not to mention the TP. You could use leaves but YMMV. No one is forcing you to use a tube, but it does leave the trail with none of your feces left behind. There are probably other reasons.

TP (particularly septic safe TP) will degrade in a cat hole rather quickly, not something to worry about, its as eco-friendly as using the damn leaves

Until you can convince deer to start using the tubes too, I really don't see the point. If the issue is proximity to the trail, maybe you'd be better off carrying some sort of *flinging* contraption.

Hey Tony, did you ever figure out how to mold your prototype invention?

this is an old idea, big wall climbers have been using something like this for years and years as your only other option would be to hang your butt off of the ledge or portaledge and just mud falcon last nights dinner away.  but with how crowded everywhere is getting these days that option was frowned upon as you may be dumping on to another party
