Save cash!

Even just swapping out to if you were disposable diapers for cloth can save you $500 a year.

 That's like a whole mini vacation

No Problem :)

You've already got it rough, but don't worry, we got you. 

Protective briefs heavy duty "protection" measures are designed to bring you peace of mind

Can these work through daytime AND nighttime? 
Adult Diaper Pad - Super Flexible, reusable and washable

Of Course!

Protective briefs come with a snap-in absorbency system that is two insert pads that come together, making one formidable absorbent unit.
The larger insert (Pocket Insert) has a pass-through pocket that you slide the smaller inert (Step-up Insert) into.

Together, you have 5 hearty layers of microfiber absorbency. For a trim daytime diaper, snap in the Pocket Insert and enjoy three layers of microfiber. For nighttime use or heavy incontinence use the entire Flexible Absorbency Diaper Pad System (both inserts).
Need even more soaking power?
Just add more absorbency with a second Step-up Insert, or a Soaker Bomb

With a system like this, you can't wet through it if you can beef up the padding!

Can you reuse these throughout the day?
How To Use Adult Pull-ups - Threaded Armor


You can reuse the brief itself by just changing the absorbent liner. From a sitting position (like on the toilet) you can simply snap out the Flexible Absorbency Diaper Pad Set and snap a new one in, all without even stepping out of the underwear. 

With a system like this, you can't wet through it if you can beef up the padding!

What does each pair come with? 

Adult Pull-ups

A Waterproof Brief Shell

It can be used as a pull-on cloth diaper cover when you do not have any inserts snapped in.
It can be used as training pants, a daytime diaper, or a swim diaper when only 1 insert is used, as a diaper when two inserts are used, and as a very heavy duty nighttime diaper when you use two or more inserts.  

Adult Pull-ups Liner

A Snap-in Pocket Liner

This diaper liner is made from three layers of absorbency, and has a pass-through pocket built in that can hold more inserts. This allows you to customize the thickness of your diaper for exactly where you're at in your day, or in your life. 

Just snap it in place and go! Got wet? Head to the bathroom, snap out your wet insert and snap in a new one :) 

Most folks use a backpack, and operate with our wetbags for this purpose. 

Adult Pull-ups Liners

A Step-up Insert

This diaper liner is two layers of fast-absorbing microfiber. The slimmer profile lets it slide easily into the pocket insert, where it stays securely in place boosting your soaking power. 

Try folding the Step-in insert in half and using it in front, right where guys need it most! 

You can use multiple Step-up inserts at a time, and although one comes with your purchase of a protective brief, you can definitely buy extras here.

Can I just use the brief, with no liner or absorbency?
Adult Pull-ups Review and Construction


Without the absorbency, Protective Briefs can be used as a diaper cover.

You still get all the benefits from the gussets on all sides, and the comfort of the soft fleece legs.

You can use this as "waterproof underwear" over a disposable diaper (think airplane travel, long car rides, etc.) You can also lay in a disposable pad to create your own hybrid of disposable and cloth.

These Briefs are truly what you need them to be!

Are These Adult Diapers For Male And Female??
Adult Pull-ups Liners and Padding- changes throughout the day


Ladies: use the Flexible Absorbency Diaper Pad Set laid flat and snapped in from front to back.

And although the pattern does not change for gender, these adult diapers are perfectly oriented for the difficulties of male incontinence due to their unique gusset panels that line the legs and waist. Absorbency may be placed in more strategic areas based on your needs.

Gentlemen: At night and if necessary, feel free to fold a Soaker Bomb in half and place it in front, where more absorbency will be required.

Do You Make These In More Fun Colors?

We do. Sometimes medical white just gets boring. Sometimes we get nostalgic for those days as a kid, when our Undies had the best graphics on them (like C-3PO!) Sometimes we just want some color. These ABDL colors and prints are the EXACT SAME design as our tried and proven Protective Briefs, just with colors and prints. Check them out...
