After too many close calls, too many jumping/cursing/flailing sessions over getting the drysuit over my head and off in time, I decided to invest in a funnel.
|no, not that kind of funnel|
Now I could have gotten a women's specific drysuit with a zippered bottom, but when looking at the design, I didn't want the zipper to rub on the thin plastic of the packraft. Kirk and I reguarly put whole days or weekends in our boats, and the last thing I wanted was a hole were my women's specific zipper is.
So I headed to Google to find a funnel. So many choices!
Do I want the GoGirl, Whiz or Shewee? Or maybe the P-EZ or Smartway?
I ultimately decided on the Freshette, not sure quite why, but the hard plastic cup could be shoved into the zipper of my drysuit, the hose replaced with a longer one if needed, and hey, it was fairly cheap.
And it works beautifully. I've even taken to using it when not in my drysuit...such a novelty to be able to stand up when peeing.
Ladies, you don't have the do the dance anymore, try a funnel!
