Mmm... I'm not sure about that either. Where are you ordering them from? Would it be possible to talk to customer service to see if they are the cloth or plastic backed?
Where do you live? I've heard rumors that the ones in America will stay plastic backed, and the ones in Europe will be changing to the cloth backed, but I haven't ordered in a few months, so I can't confirm this.
Im in SA and the new package looked like the old one, but they had the feather that said premium soft super plus.
It has a feather on the package and says air soft.
I bought the cloth backed version yesterday and like them alot.
The tapes are refasten-able for many unchanges and they are way poofier then then the molicare premium soft, which i liked for ventilation of the skin.
Also they are all white with a purple double stripe and i prefer the color..
However if you like plastic backed you will be disappointed because they dont crinkle much and are discreet.
