The Stadium Pal Mini kit is the 500 ml portable urinal for men
It is completely discrete and safe to wear for almost any occasion. The kit became popular began in the late 90’s and Coloplast started it all with their 7 Day Kit . After they discontinued making the kit BioRelief.com came up with the idea of renaming it the “Mini”. Essentially it holds half as much as the original Stadium Pal. Many people forget that it used to help men manage urinary incontinence. Rather its for convenience, urge incontinence, or recovery from prostate surgery there is not an easier item to use that allows for complete freedom without worry about where the closest restroom is.
Safer to use than in indwelling catheter, and more practical than an adult undergarment, it has opened the doors for so many men who used to be afraid to go out in public for fear of having an accident. What makes it unique is the male external catheter. Made of 100% Silicone it is a latex free material that is clear to see through so that skin can be inspected if necessary. Male externals come in different sizes. The measurement needed to determine the size is a girth measurement. Using the “Sizing Guide” allows for the best fit, and takes all the guessing out of which size to choose.
What’s Included in The Stadium Pal Kit
The STADIUM PAL consists of 4 simple components:
- The Male External Catheter worn like a condom (7 ea.)
- 18″ (cut to fit) flexible hose with connector (1 ea.)

Disclaimer: Insert the top connector of the leg bag as far as possible into the tubing.

How to size a male catheter
To determine the correct size of male external catheter use the provided measurement guide. Print out the PDF file and cut out the half moon circles. Rest the guide across the penis while it is in a relaxed state. Choose the size that it best fits into. If you find yourself in between 2 sizes choose the smaller size. If after you apply the catheter and it feels a little tight, you can take a blunt pair of scissors and snip the band at the base of the catheter. This should relieve the pressure.
For men with sensitive skin who wear a male catheter
Use of a skin barrier can help men who may have sensitive or frail skin. This will create an invisible barrier between the skin and the adhesive inside the sheath of the catheter. We like to call it “fake skin”. This invisible shield when applied to the skin will leave it feeling a little tacky. The adhesive in the catheter will now come in contact with the barrier and not the real skin. The skin barrier can easily be removed in the shower with soap and warm water.
Male external catheter is easy to remove
Removing the male catheter should just be as easy as putting it on, but if it is too difficult an adhesive remover can be used. Snip the band at the base of the catheter and work the remover under it. Gently peel away the catheter. The adhesive remover is also used for any suborn residue left on the skin from the adhesive. Taking a shower and using warm water and soap will also help with removing the catheter. Remember to take your time and be gentle.
Note: Urine remains in the tube and catheter collapses
Some men have an issue with the leg bag and urine is retaining in the tubing and the catheter is collapsing while on the penis. What is happening is a vacuum effect when the leg bag is drained. When the urine is draining it is pulling the air with it creating the vacuum effect. This collapses the catheter and will not allow all the urine to drain from the tubing and the bag will appear to be stuck together.
An easy way to alleviate this is to first make sure that there is a small pocket of air in the collection bag before the bag is used for the first time of the day. This can be done by blowing into the tubing before inserting the catheter in it. Then when the bag is drained do not drain the entire amount from the bag. Leave a small amount of urine in the bag ( an ounce or so) and this will prevent the vacuum you may experience. It should not interfere with the operation of the bag, but it’s better to not have this.
Straps Upgrade for Urine Bag Straps
We recommend upgrading the leg bag straps to the Fitz-All Fabric Straps.
I heard about this purely by chance, received it a while ago, but only just used it for the first time.
The instructions are good, but be sure to read them thoroughly a few times beforehand! Then, it becomes easy to use, and proves to be most certainly a beneficial piece of kit.
As someone else said, an extra tape to hold the tube would be a great advantage, that is the only criticism. Overall, a tiny bit pricey I think, but for the relief from worry it brings, worth the investment, and I would recommend.
This was bought, ironically, for a trip to the USA, where I thought it was probably manufactured. But no, it’s nearer to home, Denmark in fact! That’s worth investigating!
The clip at the bottom is not easy to use. When unclipping there is not much to press against. I also think that an additional velcro band should be included for keeping the tubing in place (just above the knee).
No mention was made regarding underwear in the directions…
Overall I am a happy customer but I think there is a few improvements that could be made. Also, if a person wears boots, even the 500 ml bag hangs near the ankle. What should I do about that???
This gives me a new freedom in different situations. Makes long distance traveling a piece of cake.
Not sitting in a aisle seat was always challenging to me. The minute I would sit down, I had the urge to go. Those days are over thanks to the Stadium Pal. Now if I get the urge, no problem.
should have reuseable ends
Had to throw entire unit away. Tried using and glue from product caused injury upon removal
Buy it, use it! Works beautifully!
Wasted a few until I got the hang of it. Cutting length of tube is very important.
Would be nice if customer was given a couple extra ends just to get started.
It makes life a lot easier than wearing a pad all the time.
My husband and I were not aware that a new catheter had to be used each day. My husband is handicapped and I had to help him put it on. We found it very awkward and cumbersome to get it on correctly. We find it quite expensive. We were buying this devise to prevent middle of the night accidents. This might work for a person that is using it in an upright position, but did not work well when husband was horizontal.
Needed something for OAB, don’t miss trying to find a restroom in every place I visit
