I'll give you all a hint.

1) take a pre-game dump

I swear....if you're concerned about having to take a dump while in armor...take one before hand.  All the sports athletes do it.

2) don't drink tons of water while in costume

You're gonna get hot and you're gonna get thirsty.  While staying hydrated is VERY important...you also sweat A LOT.  I've trooped for multiple hours without having to take bathroom breaks...but that's because I sip water in short intervals instead of downing a whole bottle of water or gatorade in one break.  Any water buildup in your body will divert towards your sweat.

I've followed these steps and never run into an issue with having to go to the bathroom in costume before.

..... the only problem comes is when you need a crap !

Yeah you need to "plan ahead" for that one and usually the day before a long troop.  I know somebody is laughing at this but seriously, some of us due to medical conditions really do have to plan out what meals to avoid prior to an event so we don't have that issue come up, I know I do.  Someone mentioned taking an over the counter med prior to events to kinda "plug you up", just can't remember what it was.  Another person suggested making a "butt flap" on your flight suite but honestly...I can't see anyone trying that one out even if they had a kama covering it.

I probably wouldn't, but it wouldn't surprise me if someone out there reads this and does it.

There's a word coming to mind here.  It's a combination of two words...one being "head".  I'm gonna just leave it as is and move on.

Sigh. :rolleyes:

I don't see why not. Why be embarrassed about a fully functional suit? Especially if it's completely covered. I mean think about it. The original post in this thread was basically the same idea only for the front exclusively.

Well me being one of those pesky redheads, I sweat like a stuck pig no matter what (at least being a redhead is what I blame it on haha). Whether I drink a 55 gallon drum of water, or whether I don't drink a drop. It's quite frustrating. But, I do have to drink a LOT of water because of that. Especially since I live in Arizona. So I thought of this idea because it's simply not optional to not drink tons of water, and in turn, it wouldn't be optional to not use the restroom at least a few times while trooping.
