Collection Item Summary:

This bag was used to hold the urine hose used during the collection, transfer, and disposal of urine on the Apollo 11 mission. In order to avoid having a long hose floating around the spacecraft, the hose could be coiled and put back in this storage bag both in preparation for flight and when not in use.

NASA transferred this bag to the Musuem with other Apollo 11 equipment in 1970.
