- Diaper Lover
My aide was putting some of my stash in the trash ,and I caught him trying to can a case of original M4s,he had no idea that was a sacrilege ,he's like "I just change em, I couldn't tell yours from my kids" and I had to reinforce if I buy them there premium for travel ,he knows not to mess with my Northshore but completely forgot the Abena's used to be my travel diaper.Well that kills it for me as function trumps form in my book.
(Function wise I'd bring back the original Abena X-Plus, soft plastic, front & rear elastic and they could soak up a swimming pool!)
This. Couldn't have said it better myself. I probably still have a pack or two from 2012 or so, same design as the current ones but better quality, and a few packs from 2008 (when they still were called X-Plus). I also have a 40-pack of the old AbriLets from 2008 but I am planning on keeping that untouched. The new ones don't remotely compare to those.I'd bring back the earlier Abena Abriform X-Plus diapers, back when they were thicker, thirstier, cushier and had an elastic waistband.
Before all the pinhole issues, failing elastics and tapes.
Feels like there was a sweet spot where the X-Pluses were really, really good and I miss them. Quality has fallen so since that peak.
I honestly wish I had saved one from years ago >~<
I know the thread title said only one diaper, but... I'd also bring back the old style Abri-let maxi boosters to pair with the X-Plus.
For maximum wicking performance and cushyness! :biggrin:
