I really like the Tykable PLeather diaper - it's well-made, absorbant, fits well, and it's plastic-backed. The black with yellow stripe is a great idea. They're quite expensive to get in the UK, as it means ordering them from ABDLFactory in the Netherlands, and the shipping isn't cheap.

I can't help feeling as much as I like the fairly loud crackle of the PLeather diaper when I'm walking about my home, the reality is that after a few hours, the thicker plastic design of them means the plastic's hard between my legs and causes some discomfort - particulary when sat down for a while to relax. For sure I can't wear them two days running - I have to go back to Abena M4's, or Tena Maxis - both softer plastic.

I'm probably the only one to find this, but let me know your thoughts if you've worn them. I can't help feeling a slightly softer plastic would be more comfortable. For sure I'd like Tykables to succeed as brand, and will send an email to them with feedback/suggestion if others find this.

Thanks.

I haven't worn them myself (the "leather" thing disagrees with my inner toddler), and this all seems a bit moot, as PLeather is (apparently) discontinued, but: Is the plastic shell not textured? I would sort of expect that a textured plastic would need to be thicker, or would at least feel thicker. That may be the crux of the issue.

No, the black plastic of a PLeather isn't textured. I like the bold yellow stripe - i like the idea of a grown/toddler wearing a 'watersports' style diaper. Hmmmm ... can't help thinking the black plastic's too think/not flexible. Like I say, I can't wear them 2 days running, because I get sore - and the downside of that for Tykables is they're losing out on extra sales because they can't be worn so much for longer periods. Thx for your thoughts.

I see. Well, like I said, they seem to be discontinued, so...may be little point in nit-picking them now. But who knows? Maybe there'll be a v2. That, or PLeather and SEx are sharing a cloud in Diaper Heaven. Very niche, both of them.

The S.Ex was only niche in its name, which I didn't mind at all. Nothing too out there about an all white diaper. They were eventually renamed "Tighty Whities" which was also fine with me.

I liked the PLeather diaper in principle, although I wasn't too sure about the yellow stripe until I saw one in person. I figured I'd pick some up after that but they were out of stock and then everything was out of stock and we know how that went. I wouldn't be surprised if they brought it back but given their stated intention that all their future diapers will use the Velcro-like tabs, I doubt I'll be buying any. I've seen them close up and they work fine but I don't care for anything that isn't plastic breaking up the feel of the outside shell.
