An empty Selway sure feels lighter than an empty Jonny Partner.
Not so according to their site. Perhaps the old design with the 5 gallon bucket was lighter, but the new one with the "vault" isn't. Another reason for the partner is it has tie downs via the handles, the selway IIRC doesn't, so easier to rig.An empty Selway sure feels lighter than an empty Jonny Partner.
Trip leader, not a rafter but a kayaker. Well meaning. I was groover guy, but had one on my boat, one on another boat, and he got the other one before I could get to it. I let it go and didn't let it ruin my trip.That isn't helpful LOL... If someone hasn't used my system before, I always give a "tutorial" so to speak, hopefully that would negate the possibility of a sandy seal ...
Did you have those decals cut? I'd love to buy a couple!!
I like everything on the Coyote except for the inside lip that tends to collect poo.To me the ultimate would be a elongated bowl coyote, say 7 gallons. Oh that’s right, it doesn’t exist.
Would you post up a pic of those again? I need to make one.wood ammo cans
Interesting. I've used the Coyote for more than a year and haven't noticed any poo-gathering inside lips. Admittedly, after 20 years of digging cat holes while backpacking, my directional turd game is pretty strong.I like everything on the Coyote except for the inside lip that tends to collect poo.
A 7gal Coyote with an 8" instead of 6" lid would almost do the trick.
That's what drew me to the Coyote in the end... the seat design. It does take a little practice to figure out what to do with your man-goods while seated, but once you get that down it's easy like Sunday morning.But the Coyote is fantastic for daily use, easy to rig, easy to set up, the screw lid keeps flies out, and the seat is comfy and multi-directional (face your favorite view).
The cleanout on the edge is a good design...almost as easy to empty as an Ecosafe..it's just that inner lip.
Hmm!! how about a Coyote-style seat on an Ecosafe?!
your post brings me memories of the first groover I ever had, 50 cal rocket box with 2 pieces of 2 inch sch 40 PVC pipe with lengthwise slits cut in them to lessen the "groove".. Then we got really fancy with a rectangular wooden seat that fit over the box, IIRC we used trash compactor bags back then. Went from that to likely the cheapest ill designed groover system called the "Scat Packer" which was a nightmare to rig, and clean.The perceived need to incorporate something that looks like a home toilet seat ends up being the weak link in the design of most groovers. I've always figured it was a psychological thing, a crutch for people who are skeeved out about crapping in a box next to a river to begin with.
