Even with an outhouse, relieving one's self in the great outdoors is an unpleasant experience. But having no choice but to just squat on the ground is as terrible as it gets. So after a "particularly unpleasant outdoor restroom experience", Laura Stude was struck with the inspiration to create the solution to every nature lover's biggest woe with the Strap and Crap.
The catchy name kind of says it all, but if you're having a hard time wrapping your head around the concept, here's basically how it works: you wrap the strap around a tree, you sidle up inside for support, and you crap. It's one of those "why didn't I think of that first?" ideas until you remember it's because you don't have a long history of just emptying your bowels in the middle of nowhere. But that could very well change if you support Susan's efforts to make this a reality. [Indiegogo via The GearCaster]
