People on this site have mentioned several times before that they have noticed that Depends maximum protection is disappearing from a lot of stores near them. That isn't really an issue for people who can order online, but for people like me who can only go to local stores, that is bad. I know that Depend aren't really great diapers but they "do the job" under the circumstances. I only had luck with finding the kind with 2 tabs for a while, and then the grocery store I always went to for them stopped selling them. ( and because it is the only store around here with a self checkout). I was close to losing hope for finding decent diapers nearby when I happened upon a small local pharmacy, and they were carrying, amongst other cheap brands, Depends max protection! I was so excited as I have never gotten the 3 tab kind before, so I quickly forgot my phobia of purchasing diapers from actual cashiers and got them. When I opened the pack I noticed yet another thing I haven't been able to experience yet: they are plastic backed! I am soooo happy right now and this is exactly what I needed.
