I can speak from personal experience on the combat crap, and the bladder/bowel control issue.
I've never met a real combat vet who made fun of a boot for ****ting themselves. Also never met one who didn't at least attempt to negate that possible discomfort before a mission.
I have loaded my pants, front and back, more than once.
