I've got to say ever since my ab/dlism started to bloom, I tried all sorts of diapers. My first ones that I bought were the old walgreens back in early 2000's. I thought they were awesome back in the day. Then some months later I tried Walmart Assurance and they were ok. Then I realized they were made by Depend. I didn't have a credit/debit card back then so I was stuck with these in store brands. I started to explore other pharmacies in town. I kept finding depends everywhere. I wanted something more to match the thickness of my teenage trashbag and towel routine. I kept searching and one day I went and ordered a sample pack from HDIS. They had a bill me later system. I was able to try like 10 kinds of diapers. When I got them there was Depend too but they also had Tranquility, Attend, Kendall, Another Depend knockoff Tena, and Molicare which at the time everyone was about Molicare. Boy were these awesome. Then after that I found a store in my area that sold Tena. I was happy for awhile. I didn't care for the cloth on them but they were way better than Depend. Until I finally got my hands on a debit card I was able to buy online but I was too worried about the package being delivered in the wrong hands. To this day I still worry bout that I find it easier to buy in stores. Also not having to wait a week for them to come in.
I just wish that another diaper company should step up and compete with Depend in stores. Depend marks up their price for no reason other than "Haha we can raise our prices cause we are the only one in stores people don't have another choice!". I also don't like paying so much for shipping. If another brand would step up and go on to store shelves they would thrive. Especially if the had a wide selection like Abena. Abena could easily take over. Even Tranquility. When will they realize that they could easily compete?
