The Holey Hiker Squirt Ultralight Backpacking bidet in "Kinda Yellow" is for gearheads. It requires a certain amount of confidence to carry a bidet that is not quite yellow, not quite green. One glance at you as you carry this away from the campsite screams "I am going to poop in the woods." You can't be caught packing an emergency supply of toilet paper with this bidet. It is a thing of beauty that can also double as a centerpiece during a backcountry meal. When sitting around the campfire discussing gear, this is is the piece that you take out of your pocket and pass around to impress all of your new friends.
One great feature of this bidet is that it holds it's value after you purchase it. I saw one getting resold on Reddit for $8. Bring a suitcase full to Thailand and you'd get $20 a pop for each.
I was going to tell you about the time I was run out of my sleeping bag by a herd of buffalo but instead here comes the product description that is repeated on every page. If you read it once, that is enough. Actually, just read the first line because that will tell you what the bidet is made from. And come to think of it, skip down to the bottom and read a real quote from a real Holey Hiker Bidet tester.
The resin used in the Kinda Yellow is soybean based. Please note that the bidet does not come with a painted arrow. A Sharpie will last multiple trips, but your favorite nail polish will last a long, long time. The Little Squirt weighs 7g or .24 oz. Price includes shipping and handling.

Here is what some of the testers had to say:
"As one of Paul's beta testers, I took it on an 8 day trip to Yosemite in August. It was so nice not having to carry TP in or out. And having a squeeky clean hiney was the best part. " Robert W
"Hey Paul! I just used one of your test bidets on my latest backpacking trip a few days ago. I use it every day at home, just raise the toilet seat after pooping and before squirting. Haven't used toilet paper for poop in months, maybe a year by now. I say to anyone who wants to try using a bidet, go for it in the privacy of your own home and sort it out. Once you figure it out you will never want to go back to toilet paper." Scott
Holey Hiker Backpacking Bidets are lovingly designed and 3D printed in the USA in a tiny little room in my house. The bidet is made from a Soybean based resin that is not as strong as "The White Squirt" but can take more pounding than an average backpacker would ever dish out. Click here to see one of our many strength tests for "the Squirt". It can take about half the punishment in the "Rock Meets Bidet" test. The O-rings are FDA grade seals. These are more commonly called “food grade seals” which resist the build-up of bacteria. I tried those...they will quickly degrade and crack :) Each bidet weighs approximately 7g. Because they are made from resin, you can not leave them in sunlight for prolonged periods of time. So you can't hang it from your rear view mirror, store it outside on your deck, or hand it outside your backpack on your year long thru hike :) That said, after leaving some out for 5 straight sunny days this summer we did not notice any additional weakness in our "rock meets bidet" testing. Please keep in mind that these re not pressed by the 1000's in a factory. I make them at my house which means each bidet is unique and might have a small quirk, a small indent, a little spot where I sanded down a rough spot, which does not take away from the beauty of the four hole spray.
This bidet is made from a soybean based resin.
Hello and welcome to Holey Hiker Bidets! I'm Paul Bogush the designer, creator, lead tester, and CEO (Chief Elimination Officer) of Holey Hiker Backpacking Bidets. After using a few other bidets I realized that not one had all the features I was looking for. None had the right combination of durability, ease of use, low water usage, and the perfect stream. I decided to start designing and testing my own in December 2020. Each time I went out I made a small change and then came home and fired up the 3D printer to make the improvements based on my experience and the experiences and feedback from testers all around the country. After one last outing on the Appalachian Trail in June of 2020, I had what I thought was the perfect backpacking bidet...but a tester had it eventually crack after long term testing. After another year of prototyping and experimenting with different plastics the final prototype was finally made in July of 2021 and sales to our waiting list and anyone who happen to stumble upon the website began. Our "grand opening" finally occurred on November 19, 2021.
For every bidet sold we will donate $.50 to Common Ground Summer Camp to pay for the fees of one student to attend Common Ground Summer Camp's Ranger program. You can read more about the program here https://bit.ly/3hNWnJs As (edit 7/7/22) In a couple weeks on a day off from work I will be delivering the first check for $330. This is a Camp that our daughter has attended as a child, worked at as a staff member, and will be a teacher and assistant teacher in two of their full year programs starting this fall. We think it is great!
We are the only seller of the Holey Hiker Backpacking Bidet. All other sites are selling imitations! Holey Hiker Bidets are designed and manufactured in a little corner of my house in Connecticut, USA.
And finally, if I haven't convinced you that a bidet is life changing, then listen to Evan!
"Just get one and thank me later. Honestly, I am amazed I have not heard more about bidets for backpacking. I used Paul's bidet for just over 3 weeks while on the Colorado trail and I have to tell you my butt has never been happier. In the past I have had monkey butt issues but using this little bidet and a little bit of washing with some Dr Bronner's, I did not have any butt chaffing issues at all. It's small light and has officially replaced wet wipes in my pack. I also cut my toilet paper usage to about 2 squares per day using this bidet. Paul has been working to perfect his product and I think he nailed it. This bidet is going to be in my pack forever, provided I don't lose it. (Seriously it's small). Once you hop on the bidet train there is no going back and you're going to say to yourself, 'I should have bought one of these sooner.' Trust me."
If your bidet malfunctions or gets destroyed by a bear, we will give you a full refund or a new bidet. If you just have bad aim that's on you! We package the bidets the weekend after receiving the order and get them in the mail the following Monday. You will be sent a confirmation email with the shipping # after it is packed. If we are out backpacking shipments will be delayed by one week...unless we get lost, but that rarely happens anymore!
Please keep in mind that you will receive no cutesy note or extra packing material to cut down on waste. You will get just a bidet in a little bag :)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be patient with shipping. We can ship a bidet to California in 5 days one week, and then ship one the following week that will take a month. Around holiday time all bets are off :) Sometimes when the USPS takes our packages they scan them in immediately and other times the first scan is at your regional PO. If you do not receive a bidet within 4 weeks of ordering please contact us and we will ship out a new one. Ignore the 3-5 day shipping time that is stated in the automated email with your shipping #. That is just a very loose USPS goal. The average has been four days but there are so many exceptions. Many bidets will take 2 weeks or more. Once you get an email saying we have created the shipping label it is usually in the mail the NEXT day. Approximately 1-2% of all packages are lost by the USPS. That is out of our control and sending a new one after four weeks is the best we can do!
