For those that have issues with tapes being too strong right now...assume we are able to improve the adhesive formula to avoid any issues refastening them.
I like the Megamax with the tapes like they are. They are epic. They’re the best tapes I’ve ever seen. I completely understand that the tapes might be loud in public situations and why people like hook and loop. If I want that feature, I get a different brand, like Rearz. There are a few choices. But there’s only one product just like Megamax. If you’re going to mess with it, figure out how to get the factories in China to put padding all the way into the wings.
Exactly!!! Padded side wings is a great example of a value wedge, a feature that no other diaper manufacturer offers. Patent that feature, Northshore. We side sleepers would place high value in padding deeper into the wings. There’s not much value in copying your competitors. Create a design feature that is uniquely yours and highly valued by your customers, uniquely solving a problem for side sleepers. But if you’re having these made in China, make sure you have a seasoned patent attorney file the appropriate patents to protect your intellectual property. We all know how China works.
I've yet to try any of the Northshore nappies as I'm from the UK, and you don't sell your products here yet.
But if and when you do which I hope will be soon I'm a fan of hook and loop as I love how you can readjust them multiple times to get the perfect fit.
Only drawback with hook and loop is that you can't roll up the used nappy and use the tapes to keep it rolled up in a tight ball. If you can find a way to help with this issue that would be great.
Yup this is why I LOVE the Megamax, it is the most durable product. I can jog and do any extreme activities and it will not pop a single tape which is perfect. Other diapers are problematic and cause issues when they do.Unfortunately that's the problem with most tape versions too, because the tape will tear the front, deeming them unusable. Megamax is the only adult diaper that I haven't had troubles with.
The size and the style is why I would like to see a light version of the Megamax. They fit me better than the Supremes and Supreme Lights. And I think the padding in the Megamaxes holds up better than the Supreme line and doesn’t break apart and clump up.
MegaMax Lite would be very similar to MegaMax in look and feel and performance...just with less polymers insides so total capacity was reduced. It's something we're starting to think about for future...not something that is approved or going to bee produced anytime in near future.Yesss, the Padding
I completely forgot to mention that, the padding in the Supremes I'm noticing clumps half way through diaper usage until it becomes squishy again due to usage. I've never had that issue with any MegaMax I've worn, ever.
I was curious to know what the differences are in between these two diapers cores?
And also curious to know if in making a MegaMax lite would call for using the same padding that the Supremes use? I'm hoping not. Because that clumping is incredibly uncomfortable for someone with sensory issues like myself and I imagine for everyone in general. Clumps suck.
(Just wanna take a second to appreciate my MegaMax's, they're incredibly perfect.)
Anyway, can anyone give me an answer to what the differences are in the paddings? I'm assuming it may probably be the type of sap or something..

In our experience, we've seen very little clumping in the Supreme series. That core design does such a great job of wicking that it resists clumping compared with Abena and others. That said, the MegaMax core is made very different from Supreme so it performs differently in almost every way. They are made on two very different machines with very different capabilities and features. MegaMax is much more based on polymer positioning for wicking whereas Supreme utilizes a heavy, dense design of cellulose fluff for fluid management.I'm so super glad to hear that Adam! I would be extremely excited to be able to have a "wear to work" version of my favorite product.
I was also curious if you would know the science behind my question perhaps?
I was just wondering why the Supreme line seems to have a clumping/ hardening issue mid-way through use, as to where the Megamax remains super soft 100% of the time.
Is this because the saps are different in the two lines of product? (Sap is the only guess I have here, as I'm not to savvy in their creation process.)
Thanks for the kind words.I am just thrilled to see that northshore employees and the owner seem to care about and listen to the people actually use their products, most companies that produce diapers have that " we will tell you what fits your needs or what you should like" mentality which is how we wind up with things like Depend. Thanks for listening @NorthShoreAdam .
