The reason you want to empty your bladder at night is because a full
bladder will rob your body of heat. It is similar to the hot water
bottle. A water water bottle will give you warmth until it cools, after
that it takes heat from you. A full bladder requires you to heat excess
fluid in your body. An empty bladder does not.
Empty your bladder before turning in. If you have to go in the middle of
the night, go. Don't hold out until morning or you will become cold.
I don't go for the little chamber bottles in the tent. A quick visit
outside isn't that bad. I've always found it to be well worth the effort.
