hey guys,
im german, so i think in other countries that might be different,
So i was about to order a pack of Crinklz XL, but on my normal shop (kiwisto.de)
they didnt have them anymore, but the shop is about to be redesigned, so
thats maybe just a problem with the shop.

So i went to Amazon.de and only found one single pack sold by ABU.eu for 46€!
wich is double the price of a normal pack (15 diapers)
Then i searched for the Better Dry XL but i also didnt found any pack.

Is the Producer out of business or something?
does anyone know?

I think I read somewhere else that they are experiencing shortages because of supply chain issues.

I know nappiesRus (UK) are not stocking the XL betterdrys. They even took the XL choice from their site. They are still stocking the Large and their really isn't much difference between the L and XL. The front wings on the XL are bigger. Thats all.

No. NRU (UK) Just got a new shipment in, and ABU have them in stock too.

Email them direct:

There are issues with wood supplies from two certain countries, so expect more trouble to come (and that's on top of the problems in/with China affecting their plastic-foil production and export).

No idea about XL but NRU are selling Betterdry and only just restocked.

Once again, email them and you'll get the correct accurate answer.

I just received my resupply order yesterday with zero mention of ANY issues with Thrust Vector/Betterdry. With my supplier knowing these are my "main" protection I need to rely on I'm certain they would had informed me the instant they heard of any impending issues.

the main betterdry site still has all their products, even XL:

but yes they have gone up in price, so no thy're not out of business.
SaveExpress also has betterdry in stock but I don't remember about XL.

Thrust Vector are still in business, as other people have said there are some supply chain issues and materials costs have forced price increases. We stock their full range at ABU UK (waiting on getting the site updated for the new designs). Amazon will always be more expensive due to their fees factoring into the pricing and where orders are placed from the EU on Amazon UK stock you pay the UK price plus the costs of moving it to the EU plus more fees to Amazon plus the relevant local VAT rate.

As you are in Germany you should try Saveexpress.de. Their stock is usually very good.
