  1. Abena makes a pretty good unisex pull-up. It will easily hold a couple of full on floods and then another one or two small pees. Only downside is that they are a bit more expensive than most of the other brands. My other favorite is Always Discreet, it doesn't hold as much as the Abena's but it works well for one or two pees and has nice standing leak guards which really help keep leaks from happening.
  2. I put a small folded washcloth in the bottom of the Gary PUL pants I wear over my disposable diapers. It really helps to soak up any small leaks that get out of my diaper and it's super easy to either rinse out the wash cloth if needed and hang to dry or just drop it in the washing machine/dryer.
  3. I was a bit disappointed with my Abena L4's. Although they hold a lot and I haven't had any leaks they seem to fit a little weird around the lower part of my bottom, kind of like when your underwear rides up. Also the odor protection isn't the greatest, especially if you wear them for an extended time.
  4. The weather is getting cooler here in the deep South so I figured it was time to break out my stash of plastic backed ATN's (size large). Normally they work pretty well for me and my level of incontinence. I haven't had any leaks but I've never liked that the padding in the front seems to be fairly low and the excessive plastic backing above the front tends to roll down uncomfortably (probably due to my belly). I also noticed that the rear of the diaper has significantly larger padding which I never seem to be able to use at all and in general the diaper doesn't seem to fit as well as some others I've tried. OK well you better be sitting down for what comes next! So I thought what if I turned the diaper around so the larger padding was in front where I can use it the most, crazy right? Well I was shocked at the result, the ATN fit way better than when put on "correctly" and the higher padding kept the front from rolling down. I was initially worried that the tapes would be difficult to attach but again was pleasantly surprised to find that it was almost easier to tape up. I was also concerned that the center rear wouldn't have the same amount of absorbency/SAP that the front had, but after a quick water test with a new ATN I found that the center section seems to have the same amount of SAP front to rear. Yeah I know this is crazy but I've been wearing my ATN's backwards for the last few days and they continue to work better than ever for me. Maybe it's just my body shape but even though I'm a bit overweight i'm not huge by any measure and I think I've got a fairly average figure for an "older" guy. So if you're willing to try something a little out of the ordinary you might want to try this out, it might just work as well for you as for me. Also if you do try this out please post your results one way or the other. Hey, what have you got to lose but a single ATN (or other Diaper)?
  5. First I'd recommend trying an Assurance (Walmart brand) "Guard" pad in your regular brief style underwear. They absorb quickly and hold an amazing amount. Best of all when soaked they can be easily removed and replaced. They are small enough that you can discreetly carry one in your pocket into the bathroom to change. When dry they are relatively thin and discreet but they do tend to swell up a good bit when soaked. FYI... I usually do not remove the protective liner over the adhesive strip so I can more easily remove and replace them when soaked. If you find that that isn't enough protection then I would add a Depends Flex-Fit pull-up over the Guard pad. For a bit more protection you can cut a few small slits in both sides of the Guard pad to allow flow-through into the pull-up. I use this combination quite often and it works very well for my level of incontinence.
  6. I use male guards all of the time in my McKesson Ultra diapers. I usually cut a few slits in them so the urine can flow through into my diaper. As you said they hold an incredible amount and do feel nice and soft and squishy when wet. When they're full you can just pull it out of your diaper and then just use your diaper or add another guard pad. Makes for a super quick and easy "diaper" change. And at a cost of just 20 cents apiece I think it's great bang for the buck.
  7. I was in Atlanta a few months ago and dropped by Diaper Depot. Wow, everything everyone has said about the place and especially about Helen was true. She instantly put me at ease talking about adult diapers and showed me quite a few samples In fact I think we chatted for almost an hour. Although I'm not AB (actually am IC and now a bit DL) she was able to talk me into buying a sample pack of ABU Space "just to try out"! daddyeric91: I guess I should have mentioned this to Helen at the time but I would be very interested in purchasing ABU Simples in the future and hopefully you can suggest this to her. Thanks!
  8. It's JUST underwear, wear whatever you want, it's (still) a free country!
  9. Tranquility Slimline and Gary PUL pants.
  10. Due to my BPH I often have severe leakage and also some urge incontinence.
  11. I am IC but other than that Rusty Pins got it just right, at least for me that is. I also always wear my Gary PUL pant to bed to catch any leaks that get by my diapers.
  12. diaper dimension

    Yeah, quality and value-priced really don't go together very well when it comes to diapers so your original post was a bit confusing. That said IMO at the lower end of "value-priced quality diapers" I would probably recommend Tranquility ATN's at around 80 cents each. At the higher end of "value-priced quality diapers" I would say an Abena level 3 (cloth backed) or level 4 (plastic backed) at around $1.70 each. As I previously mentioned you can always add an inexpensive booster pad to increase the capacity.
  13. diaper dimension

    I can second what everyone above has said but would like to add that you can always add a Male Guard (i.e. pad) to an inexpensive diaper to really up the capacity if you feel you might need more capacity for a given situation. You can get the WalMart Assurance brand for about 20 cents each but most of the brands like Depends and generic drug store brands are similarly priced and have similar capacity. I like to put a put a few slits in the outside of the Guard to let the urine flow through into my diaper. A great trick is when the Guard pad gets full you can just pull it out and easily dispose of it in a bathroom trash can and then you will probably have a good bit of your diaper to use. FWIW I like the McKesson Ultra (not regular) diapers, they can be purchased online from several sources for around 50 cents per diaper. Not a premium diaper by any means but I've found them to work well for me, especially with a Guard pad.
  14. love wearing the boosters when wet.and tucked. Getting that full warm feeling around my sac, makes me feel like I've fertilized.
