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, looks like it glows in the dark but doesn't, and has the tiniest holes of any Holey Hiker Backpacking Bidet. 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. It is also made out of a different type of plastic and can only take half the beating of the The Squirt in our "Rock vs Bidet" test. You can see an example of one test here. This bidet is not recommended for folks who use water that has a lot of natural debris in it or slam things in car doors by accident. The resin used for the "Little Squirt" 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 Holey Hiker "Little Squirt" Ultralight Backpacking Bidet is made from a resin that is not as strong as "The 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". "The Little Squirt" 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. 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.
The Little Squirt 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. 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 it cracked. 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. We hope to have a "grand opening" in October of 2021.
Our goal is to sell 2 bidets a day! For every 265 bidets sold we will donate $265 to Common Ground Summer Camp for one student to attend Common Ground Summer Camp's Ranger program. You can read more about the program here https://bit.ly/3hNWnJs As of September 4, 2021 and after our first month we have sold 153. 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 made in the 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. Shipping to the lower 48 states is included in the price. Shipping to anywhere else in the world is usually about $12-18 USD, email us and we can get you a quote. Alaska and Hawaii folks, please email for a shipping quote. If we are out backpacking shipments will be delayed by one week...unless we get lost, but that rarely happens more than once a month!
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 :) As soon as we are through with out current inventory of shipping bags, we will be switching to the Better Packaging Company compostable bags!
