The purchase of a portable toilet has been considered by many people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
who are frustrated with their inability to go very far from their own bathroom. These items are not only handy for camping, fishing, or hunting, but also for long car trips, Rennaissance festivals, State Fairs, or anywhere else amenities may be unavailable or unclean. For my portable toilet top picks I considered portability and ease of use.

This ingenious, but relatively expensive potty folds up to the size of a briefcase and weighs 7 pounds. It does require the use of WAG Bag kits (3 come with it). Every WAG kit comes with a waste bag, storage zip bag, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer. The waste bags include Pooh Powder which "quickly turns waste into a stable gel for easy transport and safe disposal".

This is another more expensive, but completely self-contained toilet. It has a holding tank of up to 2.8 gallons and a fresh water tank of 3.2 gallons. It latches securely for portability.

It looks like the porcelain variety, but this toilet only weighs 11 pounds. Once set up, it is good for 50 uses. The reservoir can be easily cleaned for reuse.

This is a chemical toilet that closely resembles a large bucket (16" high) with a molded seat on top. It has a useful carrying handle.
