Male urinary incontinence is a common health problem affecting millions of men worldwide. Although incontinence becomes more common with age, young people may suffer from this too. Damage to the spinal cord, prostate surgery, neurological conditions, and certain medical conditions are among the typical causes. 

Incontinence is not only a health problem, it’s also a social problem. If left untreated, incontinence can have a major impact on your wellbeing – it not only interrupts daily activities, it may also stop patients from going out in fear of experiencing involuntary leakage in public.

All Coloplast night, leg and bed bags can be used with an external catheter. They increase the night reservoirs for connection to leg bag internal urinary diversion indwelling catheter and to collect urine in intermittent self-catheterisation (eg EasiCath) when the prospect of a toilet can not be differentiated solutions such Conveen and Conveen Basic overnight bag allow individual use according to the respective requirements: whether particularly economical PVC free and handicapped accessible or for the combined application - night and bed bags from Coloplast offer its users a wide range of options and provide for an increase in comfort, safety and discretion.

The flexible non-kink tubing ensures the free flow of urine. Read more

In choosing a urine bag, no criteria are more important than the security and discretion it offers. The Conveen Security+ Urine Bag offers this and more.

Always free passage


No matter how the corrugated inlet tube is bend or twisted, it remains kink-free, making backflow impossible. Moreover, the exceptional flexibility of the tubing enables it to follow the natural movements of the leg, making the tubing just as discreet as the bag itself. If it is too long, the tubing can be shortened with a pair of scissors. The smooth parts of the inner wall of thetubing prevent the upward migration of bacteria, thereby ensuring hygienic protection.

A low profile


The bag is centre-welded, creating a partial inner barrier that allows the urine to be evenly distributed into two pockets. This has a twofold function. It flattens the bag’s profile, making it less visible, and it prevents the revealing sound that can be caused by urine splashing in a partially filled bag. It’s simply more discreet.

A safe outlet


The outlet valve provides a tight and secure seal. To prevent mistakes, the valve is designed so that it is easy to see when it is properly closed. Adding to this security, an audible click indicates complete closure. The valve is easy to operate, even for those whose dexterity is limited.

Other quality features for security and comfort


  • Double weldings for double security
  • The non-return valve prevents backflow, making the bag more hygienic
  • Secure connection to the urisheath
  • Soft, non-woven backing allows the skin to breathe and it feels comfortable
  • The bag, made without PVC, is soft and light
  • Adjustable leg bag straps available separately to hold the bag securely and comfortably in place
Conveen® urisheaths

Conveen® urisheaths

Discreet and effective Read more


Discreet and effective, urisheaths help men manage urinary incontinence. A urisheath is a soft, flexible sleeve that fits onto the penis. Strapped to your leg, the bag is hidden by your trousers.

Urine is funnelled through a tube to a bag, which safely stores the urine until you are ready to empty it into a toilet. Urisheaths also allow urine to be drained away from the skin’s surface and so protect against odour and skin rashes.

You can wear a urisheath for up to 24 hours, so you only need to change it once a day. After use, disconnect the urisheath from the collecting tube, roll it off the penis and disposed of it in the bin.

There are different urisheaths available – and some of the more advanced have adhesive built in and anti-kink features to protect against leaks, making them a discreet and very effective product.
