Product Description

The Wag Bag

Bill Phillips is the inventor of the PETT Toilet System.

I met Bill Phillips a number of years ago in Bozeman, MT and he gave me a PETT Toilet System. I have used off and on over the years and its a great product. Really great for family trips and remote camp sites.

What Bill invented has revolutionized the #2 business for a lot of folks including those of us who enjoy taking a great dump in the woods!

Bill's product basically neutralizes human waste into a product that is extremely biodegradable and can easily be left for placement in a landfill.

Bill calls his invention Poo Powder and that is what is found in the WAG BAG. The PETT Site states that "the non-toxic Poo Powder waste treatment treats up to 32 ounces of liquid and solid waste allowing for multiple use. It turns liquid waste to a solid for hygenic and spillproof transport. The Poo Powder waste treatment controls odors and contains a decay catalyst that breaks down solid waste".

Now I still wouldn't want to haul someone else's poo out of the hills but at least it doesn't stink!

If you have ever climbed a Cascade volcano and been issued a 'blue bag' or the 'Mt. Shasta human waste packout system', then you will like these.

They are light weight, come with hand sanitizer and a small amount of toilet paper, and secure. I usually pack a few of these for Shasta instead of the USFS-issued packout bags. After use I do still prefer to put them in a trash compactor bag for the hike out though.
