Found 10th Dec 2010
Too many posts recently on here for touchy iPods, headache tablet iPads...so ladies and gentlemen lets have it for the ultimate xmas gift for the fashion conscious traveller in your life.....

The iPood Pocket Camp Trowel.

At an RRP of £19.99, this £5 saving inclusive of delivery offers fantastic value for those that value Jobs (Not Steve ones) on the move.

Introducing iPOOd!™ The strongest, lightweight, compact camp trowel in the world. Poo with pride!

Proper Use:

If no facilities are available, use the Sea To Summit iPOOd!™ to deposit solid human waste in a hole dug 10-15 cm deep and at least 100 metres from water-bodies, camp, tracks, and watercourses.
To promote decomposition, choose a site in organic soil, rather than sandy mineral soil and in the sun rather than the shade. Use the Sea To Summit iPOOd!™ to dig the hole, and gently remove a plug of sod containing roots and soil and carefully put it aside.

After use, and before replacing the plug of sod, use a stick to mix some soil into the faeces to promote decomposition. The microbes found in the organic layer of soil will break down faeces and the pathogens they contain. In some locations the organic layer may be shallow or almost non-existent.

Do your best to seek the most appropriate site. Replace the plug and disguise the hole by lightly tamping down around the edges. Then “naturalise” the site by scattering leaf litter and disguise it well after use.

Leave No Trace encourages and supports the development and use of products / gear that assists people to practice appropriate behaviour.

Colours may vary. (Are they referring to the product? ;-) )

Please note the product is not affiliated in any way with Apple, but feel free to send one to Steve Jobs for a Secret Santa gift.

Thanks, trying to edit the link, it has added google chrome info on the end, but the new "improved" HUKD layout won't let me.

But that is a cheap inferior version, it is not an iPOOd!™, not remotely sturdy in construction for proper digging, and doesn't have any features in the handle for sanitiser or toilet roll.....false economy!

I think you miss the real point. I believe most people's major consideration when buying this product would be it's weight.

I have the 'not remotely sturdy' product you talk about, and I have to disagree with your opinion. With today's hard ground in my garden, I would be more than able to use it on my lawn. How much more sturdy than that is required.

Truly I, and many others, spend a small fortune removing and reducing overweight, over engineered items from their packs.

You normally find simplistic designs work best. The collapsible handle of the ipood is nice, but could be it's weakness.

I can't see how my choice is a false economy at all.

You fail to miss the point that it is not an iPOOd!™ that you are comparing it to, if you can find an iPOOd!™ cheaper then please list it. It is quite clear that anything manufactured by iPOOd!™ just like Apple is clearly going to be superior to any competitor on the market and is thus worth the extra price associated with it.

At 25% off the RRP delivered for an iPOOd!™ it represents excellent value for anyone wanting to do their Stevey Jobs on the move.

Some people get so defensive of their post's. I fully understand that it's not an iPOOd.

I just responded to your response to my post.

My first post should be helpful to anyone that is actually interested in buying an item like this. I'm really not interested or trying to 'steal you thunder', and I'm sorry if my posting in some way offended.

If the Ipood is definately what someone wants to buy then of course your posting is very helpful.

If you fail to see that this thread is somehow a lighthearted joke on the whole iPod revolution then perhaps it needs pointing out to you!

However, if you do take your toilet trowels seriously, then for £9.99 the trowel you mentioned can also come with a carrying pouch, hand sanitiser and none the less inclusive of a plastic bag for toilet paper!, still won't pack down in your rucksack as compact as a iPOOd!™ though, but there again its the whole weight vs volume problem ;-)

Just The Jobby no trademark

Well yes of course I understand it's a lighthearted joke. The truth is I've not got as much time on my hands as I think I have sometimes.

However look at this remark on Amazon. Bizzare to say the least.

I have just bought this pocket trowel for mountain camping. It has a major design fault....once you have pulled out the spade, it is almost impossible to retract it. There is a tiny metal button, visible on the shaft, which you have to press in order to retract but it is very, very difficult to do so, which rather defeats the object of having a compact 'pocket' trowel. One might as well just buy a small, non-retractable, trowel for half the price.


Nice covered in s**te!!

You are so right on the volume weight issue though.

Comments do not matter, we are talking about an iPOOd!™ lest we forget! Just like their are better competitors to iPod, it is irrelevant! ;-)

Your right they are better made from stronger plastic than iPOOd's
You can also use the Bucket for Washing in- an iPOOd does not have this option

But unlike UGGS Australia™ which are US Owned, and Made In China, iPOOd!™ are Australian, designed for many "applications" whereas the Bucket has limited capacity and fills easily.
