At first I was going to buy some Truly diapers from Zellers after a good friend recommended them, but they were sold out in the medium size. So today, after work, I popped over to Walmart to pick up some goodnights, and I decided to peek in at the adult diapers first. Low and behold, there were packages of Equate Fitted Protection. tl;dr, I bought the mediums, and this is what I found:
Fabric backing material:
-Wings are somewhat stretchy
-Breathes nice: no sweating
-Two really thin yellow lines... turns blue when wet
-2 wide tabs on each wing
-Refastens multiple times
-Kinda cute blue cross-hatch pattern on tab material
-Blue center super absorbant strip (like a maxi pad)
-Thicker padding material
-Wide padding creates evident crotch and butt bulge (if that seems important or not)
-Can be tugged and pulled without fear of tearing or losing tab "stickiness"
-Cheap: $16.99 CAD for a 20 pack (medium size)
-Cloth backing actually feels like infant diapers
-Stealthy! Virtually no sound, tabs are significantly more silent than Depends.
-Some evident bulge.
-Hard to identify diaper size on package (without picking up packages to read them)
I haven't used them yet, so I can't provide an accurate review on wettings, but I suspect they wouldn't be very spectacular while lying down. Fabric backing material = leaks through diaper? If anyone wants a wetting review, I can find a time and place to try it out.
As is, I don't think I'll ever buy Depends again. These are absolutely fantastic in design and fit, and they're much cheaper.
I was too lazy to check if a review on these diapers has been done yet, but who doesn't love multiple reviews? I really hope this helped everyone.
