Thread: Plastic Pants That Are Actually Durable

  1. #1

    Default Plastic Pants That Are Actually Durable

    Hey all,

    I'm having... a time finding plastic pants. I've tried a pair from Babypants and a pair (technically three) from Priva, but they all have the same problem of coming apart at the seams.
    The Priva ones had the additional problem of the elastic coming unsewn after maybe two uses:

    I'm really at my wit's end here. Can someone recommend a place for good quality plastic pants? I don't want anything fancy, just something that's white or transparent and durable. I've wasted almost $50 on plastic pants that work maybe twice before failing. I'm wearing them over disposables if that helps, and I am a pretty big guy, but I always get them in my size and the fit is never a problem. Thanks a bunch!

    Suprima. I've used the S1212 and S1214s (and the higher back version, the S1232s I think) and they're excellent. German quality. http://b4ns.com/index.php?PageType=P...ine=VinylPants

    KINS, seem Great. Been using them for years. Get brittle after a few months but last the longest. I am talking about their thicker plastic pants. Shipping takes forever guess cause they are in Canada. BabyPants are the worst

    I use the 7 mil PVC, high-waist, "Comfort" plastic pants from from The Changing Times Diaper Co; where the elastics are sewn in-between layers of the vinyl pants.

    Now, I'm not a heavy user of vinyl pants, but I've had the same set of 2 for about 4-5 years with off and on usage. No issues so far; though I don't use creams/oils where they can get into contact with the pants (which wears them out).

    KINS stuff (as people have mentioned above) is also really good quality.

    Not sure if you consider Polyurethane Laminate (PUL) pants "plastic" or not but if you do try Gary ActiveWear Briefs PUL pants. They fit great, are super durable, and stand up well to machine washing. Cost is about $25 from several sources like NorthShore Care Supply and they even come in several solid colors as well as all white.

    +1. Although I prefer the thinner ones. I'm pretty sure these Changing Times pants are made by Gary Mfg, which also makes the Adult Cloth Diaper Co. "LeakMaster" pants as well as certain of the pants sold by Baby Pants. My 4mil "Comfort Vinyl" pants from Changing Times lasted almost three years.

    At the risk of seeming to blame the user: Can you tell us how you're washing them and what, if any, creams and stuff might be coming into contact with them? Only PUL types can tolerate the dryer, and harsh detergents and detergent boosters can damage all kinds. Most of the time you'll just want to give your plastic pants a good rinse, shake as much water off of them as you can, and then hang them up to finish drying. Being non-absorbent, they tend to dry pretty quickly. I like to throw mine into the wash with the diapers periodically as well, using a sensitive-skin detergent, and then I do the shake-off/line-dry thing.

    Kins have some great pants in rubber my normal day to day are Angelfluff "blue ice" and I have some that are pushing 10 years , I don't wear anything but Remedy non petroleum care products with my pants, I did buy some of the cheap black red and purple vinyl pants that I use for sick days and any type of rash care , at about ten bucks a pair , I will sacrifice them without s problem to save my $50.00 a pair "blue ice", the vinyl are of the rack , whereas the others are completely custom and I own the pattern just have to call and give them my pattern number to have new ones made exactly like my old ones , with no tweaking of the pant to fit right , that's all already been done and in the pattern.

    The blue stars from baby-pants generally last me about half a year. I bought like 20 of them for a huge discount. I generally like them, but I have so many that I don't have a good reason to try others. If others have issues with them, idk,

    Just a thought to the original poster. Are you wearing the right size of pants? Years ago when I first started getting plastic pants I had the same problem but soon realized I was buying pants that were a little too small. I moved up to the next size and then had no problems. Some makes of plastic pants seem to have leg openings too small in comparison to the waist size. When buying new ones I always make sure that the legs will fit as well as the waist.
    The well-known ones from China ( Haian) serve me well, and if looked after last at least a year and i use every night.
