The ostomy bag has a one-way gas-valve to allow easy removal of gas by gently squeezing the bag. It is also designed with a waterproof, airtight, anti-odour cloth to improve the smell. In order to facilitate outdoor use, its ostomy stamp comes in rubber notches of different sizes to suit any condition.
