My DW always takes a sports bra when we go 4WDriving.

There is a device made of Silicone,that Women can use to write their name in the Snow,It's called a SheWee,An ex-GF used one to great effect,she even managed to wee on the tree,next to me,lol!It doesn't work with every woman due to Anatomical positioning,etc.(her friend had a tough go of it),They were about $10,3yrs ago,I don't have any links but I'll bet if you googled shewee,you would get to what I'm talking about,they even had glow-in-the-dark/Neon colors!

I respectfully disagree. Having a bra that fits is more important than the footwear.

I'd slightly disagree. Pick up any Nat'l Geographic and you'll find a lot of women w/o bras. Granted, most ladies I know don't plan on walking around au natural, but point remains, a bra isn't strictly mandatory. I've had more than one female patient ask me about bra-related issues (and I have no idea why - literally next door my boss is an OB/GYN) - which isn't quite the same as having them for myself, I know smile - so this thread is of some interest to me.

Something else to consider for women - birth control pills. You don't HAVE to have a period every month. If you're already on some form of pill, why not stash a pack or 2 in your BOB. Skip the last week's sugar pills and start the next pack. You can do several months like this before really needing to take a break.

If planning your disaster ahead of time is possible, there are also pills that will stop your period from happening. I don't remember what they're called, but your OB/GYN would know.

MDinana, you're right. There's a different bra for every body and every different situation, and sometimes that includes no bra. That said, I always pack an extra one in my kits, usually a good sports bra.

WOW! DH is right - we are complicated! LOL!

I first head of those a few years ago, Richlacal, and every year when we winter camp, and every time a get a not so comfortably placed mosquito bite, I wish I had one. You guys can use a well sealed, well labeled bottle in the tent right? That could have it's advantages.

Re: menstrual products, some good thoughts already but what about a reusable product like the Keeper or even reusable pads? Of course, depending on the situation there could be sanitary concerns...

Something to keep in mind if you're planning to use birth control pills, especially if you'd only use them for an emergency, is that all pills are different and some women don't tolerate them well. The ones I've tried give me terrible headaches, for instance.

I cannot speak for others; being able to whip it out or not is not an issue for me.
