Yes, Threaded Armor Protective Briefs are adult cloth diapers. They are washable and reusable. They differ from diapers though, because they are pull-on/pull-off in nature, although we do offer a snap-on version as well. They also have soft legs, rather then crinkly legs like disposable diapers.
Yes, Protective Briefs are waterproof. The body, tabs and internal gussets are all waterproof on the Protective Briefs. For the Protective Briefs with Snaps, the side tabs are not waterproof, but rather stretchy lycra, These have been thoroughly tested and found to be excellent for typical incontinence situations.
For heavy overnight incontinence, we recommend the Protective Briefs
Protective Briefs are for men and woman. The pattern does not change for gender. The absorbency may be placed in more strategic areas based on your needs.
Ladies: use the Diaper Pad Set laid flat and snapped in from front to back.
Gentlemen: At night and if necessary, feel free to fold a Step-up insert in half and place it in front, where more absorbency will be required.
Absolutely, change can be scary. We suggest you watch this video series. Education can eliminate fear.Head To The Video Series

Absolutely! Many of our customers switch between cloth and disposables. The most common method of hybrid diapering is the use of cloth 100% of the time while at home, cloth overnight because it performs better than disposables, and using disposables when heading out. Other customers use their cloth at home, but they will use our cloth waterproof shell over their disposable when heading out, just in case.
However, Threaded Armor has fashioned their briefs sufficiently to handle the rigors of incontinence out of the home as well.
Many people researching cloth suffer from sticker shock at first glance. Cloth products range between $40 and $90 per item depending on where you purchase it from. Threaded Armor sits in the middle of that range and offers a superior product. The initial investment will last until the product wears out (between one and three years.) Your costs can be recovered within a few short months, and you won't be trapped into paying for disposables year after year. This product works to replace a disposable diaper one for one. With 10 pairs you will very comfortably be able to use cloth diapers 100% of the time, completely eliminating your disposable diaper bill.
Even purchasing Threaded Armor products at full price will save your money in the long run. Going through just two disposable diapers a day will cost you around $670 a year.
If you were to purchase three protective briefs, that might cost you around $200 but they will last you well over three years. That's a savings of $1800 over the course of three years, and that's only with going through two diapers a day.If you use four diapers a day your savings more than doubles to $3800!
However, we do offer multiple ways to save money. You can use a coupon code DitchDisposables to save an instant $5 off your purchase.
We also offer a loyalty rewards program, so every purchase you make you will be earning money towards free stuff in the future.

Cloth smells like disposables smell. I have heard the dilemma with people suffering from incontinence that they don’t often hydrate themselves as they should because they don’t want to to have an accident out of their control. But because they are not hydrated, when they do have an accident their urine has a stronger odor to it.
This is such a shame!
You need water to stay healthy and flush toxins from your body. If you are already suffering incontinence for whatever reason, you don’t want to compromise yourself further by living in a state of dehydration. Having that water is that you know your body needs may also come with the stress of using one more diaper.
If only you didn’t drink as much you won’t go through as many diapers and this will save you money. A lot of people that switched to cloth can feel comfortable drinking more freely because they know their incontinence solution is now reusable. It doesn’t cost you anything more to drink the water your body desperately needs.
The other note I would like to say about the smell of incontinence whether it be urine or bowel, whether you use cloth or disposable, as that our Odor Eliminator Is fantastic at binding with molecules that cause the smell and neutralizing them instantly. Odor Eliminator is made with a generous amount of Colloidal Gold. Other companies that make a Colloidal Gold gold based spray will certainly use a minimum amount to keep their costs lower. Because ours is made specifically for the incontinence industry, you better believe we are not cutting any corners here. (in fact, have you EVER caught us cutting corners?) Our goal is to quickly and effectively neutralize any foul odor from your space as quickly as possible. If you haven’t done so yet please give our Odor Eliminator at try!
