Before I say anything, I am NOT going to buy online. Too many risks associated with it, and too much money. Maybe one day, but not now.

However, as much as I love baby diapers (and the fact that Pampers freakin' fits me), I want to get some adult products. I'm in Canada, so unless I'm mistaken I can choose between Depends and (perhaps) Tena. I've heard a lot of Depend-bashing, but I also know it comes in different types, from least to most-absorbent.

So, are any of these worth my money? If not, what is?

Thanks. :)

If you do get Depends, get the most absorbant...Who knows, you might actually like them...They are enough to tide you over...You could also try some pharmacy brands, they are on par with Depends usually, and they are cheaper...I don't know about Tena...I'm thinking about buying a pack, but I don't know that much about them...

Unlike many people you'll find on this site, I am immensely happy with the quality of generic brands of diapers. Although I do have the economical resources and opportunity to purchase better, higher quality brands online, I always find myself thinking...

... being that this is an interest, a comfort, even a fetish, if you will, and not something that I need to do, why spend a lot of money on something I'm just going to rock out a piss in?

I buy Rite Aid or Eckerd brands, get them a few sizes larger, and I've never had much of a problem with leaking, deterioration, loose tapes, whatever. They appear to work perfectly fine for me, and I'm spending about nine or ten dollars for fifteen as opposed to the buku cash I'd be spending online for getting the more famous brands.

Check your local pharmacies -- you might find pharmacy brand-name to be perfectly worth your time and interest. Give them a shot. You might be surprised!

If you want to check out cloth diapers there is a great company right there in Canada. They are called Babykins. They make great cloth diapers and plastic pants.:smile:

Well, considering you're limited to store brands, Depends, pull-ons, etc., the easiest option would be to get some Depends Fitted Maximum Protection...



And use a size 6/7 or a goodnite (or both... :) ) for a stuffer. That'll make for a decent diaper, provided you don't flood it.

There is also the possibility of getting Attends from a medical store near you. Check the yellow pages and give one a call. Don't be weirded out about calling about diapers... They deal with it all day long.

Ahem...being a Canadian...I can tell you that the Exact brand sold at Superstore is superior to Depend! Or so has been my experience anyway (and much cheaper too).

That said...if you want good diapers at a reasonable price...try a medical supply store (there's one in the lil strip mall in Woodlawn...next to the Lawton's)....I got Tena there, much cheaper than at Lawton's! I haven't been lately, but I know they stock several brands.

In all honesty, Pojo, I think they're pretty good. Then again, my word might not be as reliable as those of other diaper afficionadoes on the site, but I think they're nice and comfortable! Give them a shot -- might be worth it!

Try the wally world diapers, Assurance, for about 40 cents a diaper there not bad as long as you stuff them, I have been wearing tham everyday for the last few months, I really like the price and the diaper.

If you have tried the CVS plastic backed diaper there about the same, I use usually 2 mirofiber towels in them and they take a pertty good wetting all at once, if you interested let me know I tell you how to fold the towels so they work better.

I don't think they sell the plastic backed CVS anymore...I would buy them if I saw them

They're cloth-backed (which, to me, is something that I don't care about), but they're considerably thick and sturdy compared to other generic pharmacy brands. They don't fall apart nearly as easily as you find other name-brand pharmacy diapers doing. They've got two tapes on either side. I buy the largest ones I can just so they're not insanely tight, and they end up coming out extremely comfortable.

Let me know if you try them, and what you think about them!

I just wanted to point out that Attends sells in Canada as well.. check their website and see if they have a retailer near you.

If you can find Attends, then that's an obvious good option. Otherwise, Depends Fitted Maximum Protection are alright. They are pretty absorbent, and though they're not the best diaper, they are easy to find and not too expensive and they fit fine.

CVS baby diaper in a Depend, all the comfort and security of a brief with the absorbency of a double diaper! I like that the most, if not just go for the Attends if you can't get imported.

I have to add that I have been wearing the most absorbent Tena pull ups and they seem to work really nicely. They are comfy and quite absorbent, so though they're not a "real" diaper, they are actually quite a good option.

Pojo, most of the store brand briefs are all made by one manufacturer. CVS, Walgreens, Eckerd, Rite Aid, and a few others are all made by Tyco Healthcare, and are different variations on Tyco's Kendall institutional quality briefs.

What does this mean?

It means that while they are reasonably soft, white, and crinkly (and can be made to resemble baby diapers... the primary reason people like them), they aren't very absorbent, and the padding area is small. Depends are definitely better, as they have more padding, more gel in the padding for better absorbency, a wider crotch, stronger elastic in the leg gathers, and three tapes instead of two.

The one good store brand are the Members Mark briefs from Sam's Club. They're similar to a Tranquility in quality.

Add wal-mart to the list too. I'm glad someone else has figured this out.
