Green Depends - an observation

I just wanted to post something I noticed about older green depends and see if anyone else has experienced this. I came across some much older green Depends (1989? 1990?). I had read (not sure where) that the old green depends were great and everyone wished they could bring them back. These were unlike any depends I had ever seen - they actually used a thin rubber band for the elastic waistband. Anyway, they were paper thin and horrible!
Then, I found another bag of old green depends and thought I would try my luck. Turns out these were much better. They were thicker and didn't leak nearly as bad. In fact, the more I think about it, I think they may be the same as the current Max protection, just in green.
Also, on the newer bag of green depends, I noticed on the side of the bag that there were two fitted briefs back then. A regular one and an overnight. Just thought I'd share...

I remember the green Depends. They were so not babyish, and thus weren't liked that much. However, they were improved a bit over the years, where they became a little thicker and more absorbent - sounds like you found an example of each. The one thing I did kind of like about them though, is how crinkly they were. They totally shouted to others, 'Hey, I'm wearing a diaper!". It was fun as long as I didn't wear them in a public library or something, and never around people I knew.

I wouldn't think there were many people who'd want these to come back though. They just weren't as appealing as the blue-taped, elastic waist Attends were. And they were green! :bleh::yucky: Not good.

There used to be "Regular" and "Overnight" Depends. They made the two varieties up until 2004 or so. When I was a freshman in college I wore all the time... not all day every day, but really close. I didn't want to order things from the internet yet (you explain getting a case of diapers delivered to your dorm room) so I used Goodnites (the really good original ones) and Overnight Depends.

The overnight Depends were actually worth a damn... Thicker than the ones we have now... capable of handling a solid 3 wettings. They were a pretty good bargain at the time.

One time I got some of the green depends with the rubber band elastics from a thrift store. I had no idea that they were depends, though. And you're right. They were awful. They were as effective as putting a paper towel between your legs. They were so strange though. I have never seen anything since with elastics like that, which is a good thing.
