    as you can see from my leak check (no pun intended) I think this would be a good bottle to use on a longer xc. it holds 59oz and the average bladder holds upwards of 16oz so I got a little over 3 weewee breaks, which is more than enough for most trips. has a larger opening, so, no concerns there.

    You may want to re-label it.
    and whatever you do, don't use a lemonade jug.
    could end badly.

    Is there anyone here good enough with those fancy art programs to design a "Homestyle Urine, fresh squeezed, not from concentrate (contains 0% juice)" label to fit the Tropicana jug? That would be worth the cost.

    Something that's leak proof at 20% capacity may not be leak proof at 80% capacity. Must redo the test.

    How could one adapt this if they were too large to use the capped end?

    Why do I get the feeling this is going to be the subject of a 6PC instructional video some day?

    Are you sure that's going to be a problem?

    CONDOMS TOO BIG FOR INDIAN MEN
    A recent study over one thousand men in India has shown that condoms made to international sizes are far too large for the majority of them...The study was carried out by the Indian Council of Medical Research. They asked 1,200 volunteers from around the country to offer their penis up for measurement, and it was measured down to precisely the last millimetre...The study concluded that over 60% of men could not fit into condoms properly, and they were around three to five centimetres shorter than international standards. As a result, it means the condom has a huge chance of falling off...

    What happens if you don't need to pee, but need to do something like. "taking the browns to the super bowl...?"

    Oh no, the Lemonade Flavor bottle is part of the joke! "Hey honey... you thirsty?"

    My travel bottle is Gatorade, lemonade of course.

    Carry 2 20 oz and not one 59 oz.

    Once you have peed in one, uncapping the same container a second time in turbulence will cause spillage.

    Well the one thing this study did settle once and for all is that size does NOT matter. Because if it did India wouldn't have 1.3 billion people. Now all us guys have to worry about is the same thing as a Tesla owner...going the distance.

    Is it really that hard to pee before takeoff???

    And GRG, maybe part of why India has 1.3B people is that the condoms are too big . . . . Make 'em so they fit, the curve may taper off some. But this has little to do with flying--most GA planes don't have space for the required superimposed position . . . . regardless of the equipment "fit."

    Large mouth gatorade bottle has been best option for me, and I give it a squeeze before sealing so it always has a bit of negative pressure inside.

    What are the ladies doing?

    When I get to cruise the FS450 says, "6.5hrs Rem". (The bottle is not usually needed for flights of 450mi or less.)

    Do you fly many 6 hours legs?

    I've done 4:30 a couple of times, I was beyond ready to get out and walk around . . . . Didn't make a pee stop until the plane was covered and tied down or pushed into the hangar.

    Just buy the extra large condom, and fasten securely at the base with a rubber band.
    Tada! No orange juice jug needed.

    and might make a nice present to drop off at 1500 ft. to the ex.

    There's a large Nalgene in our hangar that someone kindly labeled in huge lettering in permanent marker: DO NOT DRINK!

    I've never used it and I think a Nalgene is kinda spendy for such a purpose. Haha.

    • There are some appendages that might get an elastic band. For a very short while. But that is NOT one of them!

    Just carry a few TravelJohns and discard discretely at destination. They work for (OK intimately close) ladies too.

    Thanks, Nate. I have a new job at a small PE-backed startup company that keeps me permanently swamped during the day. The family takes care of the rest! :-D

    I didn't show you what was in MY flightbag, the other day... you would have been impressed... when you're over 60 you really need to be prepared, because when nature calls... she SCREAMS! I wonder how much dog puke would that hold?

    Just don't poor the contents out the window during the winter. I know someone that ended up with peecycles on the side of their plane doing that during a flight.

    I've heard that eating a small bag of chips right before you get on a plane helps too. Apparently the salt causes you to retain water and not have to pee as soon.
