A Love for NZ

Leave only footprints

At Caught Short we believe in being nature’s perfect guest by taking out what we take in, no matter if it’s a remote spot or a ‘well used’ trail. We provide products that easily allow you to explore with freedom and leave nothing behind but footprints.

We believe in inspiring respect for our environment and the people in it. To us this means leaving our pristine landscapes as we found them or better, ensuring the communities calling these places home are happy to host local and overseas visitors in their backyard.

"We want everyone to be able to explore the great outdoors with freedom. But we want them to leave it as pristine as they found it."

Our products are specially designed to be highly portable and contain everything you need for toileting on-the-go, so you’ll never be caught short again. They include waste bags, unique odour eradicating powder, toilet paper and antibacterial hand wipes. There’s nothing else you’ll need.

Bikers, trampers, campers, family road trippers, freedom campers, anglers, boaties, hunters or emergency kits – no matter what your style is we have your butt covered.

“As explorers we are responsible for keeping NZ waste free”

Our People


Caught short once too often

I firmly believe in leaving no trace, everywhere, no exceptions. Caught Short was born out of a love for NZ and awesome adventures. I love getting out with my family but hate coming across someone else’s business. I hope Caught Short inspires a new-age love for keeping NZ beautiful. I hope our products ensure everyone has the freedom to travel anywhere without the risk of being #caughtshort. Help us make a difference and keep our country clean.
