Hiyas - well funny you should ask. I actually do lol.Originally Posted by Another Member
Well, anyway... I finally got back in touch with my contact there and found out the owner was retiring after over 15 years of doing medical supply and closed the main sites. The only one open now is the bulk wholesale but it's not for individual sales.
The Active Ultra Plus (velcro tapes) that were pretty new to the AB market and unfortunately they didn't get the long publicity Abena, Binos, etc got but Bottom Half Group did take over because the information about them (edited) got enough people to try them and post all the good reviews. If you notice, BHG sells them as premiums just like their others now So hopefully they'll get the recognition they deserve.
They are still selling the remaining warehouse inventory but the only AUP's they have are XL (about 100 cases left) for $50/case. We talked for a while about the 'daytime Actives Ultra' they still had a lot left of (several hundred cases of all sizes) I personally wasn't sure about them but we agreed for me to get some and I would write up my review. I just got them recently and have been trying them out.
They are all plastic backed with Abena-like tapes. (Which is the part I don't like because they still act just like the Abena tapes.) They have the blue wicking strip in them that actually is better than any other blue strip brand I've tried. The capacity was very suprising! I weighed a used AUPlus and the AUltra (daytime) and it weighed the exact same! The odd part is they are about 1/2 as thin dry as the AUP. I wanted to finish giving them a full chance of daytime/nighttime and active working with multiple scenarios/situations before doing my review. Other than the tapes, and dryweight thickness, and better wicking they are identical
Now here's the rest of the news... The case price for the 78/cs AUP XL and the 96/case of the daytimes are $50!! If you are interested I'll give you their link
