Can these work through daytime AND nighttime?

Yes but there is something you should know

The Protective Brief with snaps are virtually identical to the original Protective Briefs, but the main difference is the stretchy side tabs. 

They still have incredible waterproof gussets around the legs, tummy, and back, but the side tabs are made of a stretchy lycra. This gives a wonderfully comfortable fit, but lacks the waterproofing you may need if you are a side sleeper or if you "flood" at night. 

So although they certainly can work for nighttime, I would only recommend them for lighter nighttime incontinence and overall full daytime use. 

You can also use them as an adult swim diaper :)

Can I just use these as a diaper cover?

They make the perfect diaper cover for cloth diapers or for use over a disposable diaper. To use them as a cover, simply leave out the Diaper Pad Set. 

You will have all the benefits of a trim incontinence diaper cover, including waterproof gussets and super comfy side tabs. You can reuse it as a cover as well. 

I was once on a 5 hour red eye flight and sat next a small older woman. When we exited the plane her seat was wet. Although she was wearing a disposable, it was not enough to contain everything. I thought - if only she had these!

Can you reuse the shell throughout the day?

You sure can!

The Diaper Pad Set is snapped in place. To reuse the shell, just unsnap the used diaper pad and snap a fresh one in place. This can easily be done by sitting on the toilet and pulling them down, just like underwear. 

Consider a Wetbag for a simple (and popular) way to transport wet pads. 

Do these work for ladies and gentlemen?
diapers for adult incontinence

They do

The pattern does not change for male or female, but rather the diaper liner placement can be altered to suit your individual needs.

Wetness tends to happen more centrally in the underwear. Lie your pads fully flat, and when adding any additional liners add them flat to the main body of the diaper. 

It's always good to have a base layer of absorbency throughout the main part of the diaper. Snap the pocket diaper pad into the briefs for an initial layer of full coverage absorbency. You can then take the step up insert, fold it in half and place it just in the front. Feel free to use extra padding either through the entire body of the diaper or multiple inserts in the front to pad the areas that get the most wetness.

What's included your purchase?

A Pair of Waterproof Briefs

 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 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.

The 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 you 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 back pack, and operate with our wetbags for this purpose.

A Step-up Insert

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

Try folding the Step-up 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.

Protective Briefs with Snaps


Perfect as a diaper, or an adult diaper cover

The most common feedback I hear from callers is that our incontinence underwear are head-over-heels more comfortable than disposable diapers. It starts with the soft leg elastic. Disposables are known for their scratchy legs. These adult diaper covers with snap-in liners  are like a breath of fresh air, comparatively! Wrapping around the hips is our soft and stretchy tabs. These tabs hug and hold the body in a lightweight comfortable way, providing a great fit and full range of motion.

The absorbent liner snaps into place, or leave it out to use this diaper as an adult diaper cover. You can switch out the liners throughout the day, reusing the diaper shell until you are no longer comfortable doing so.

Included in your purchase is the adult diaper cover, the snap in liner, and an additional liner to boost absorbency further. Use the snap in liner for the trimmest look, and light to moderate incontinence. Add the additional step-up liner to boost the absorbency and step it up to handle nighttime.

Functions Of Our Adult Diaper Covers and Liners

The entire wetzone of our Protective Brief Incontinence Underwear is made from local waterproof laminate that is safe for sensitive users. No latex, rubber or vinyl is used in the making of these underwear.

Waterproof gussets fully line each side of the diaper, redirecting wetness towards the absorbent core. Additional gussets that line the back and front edge of the underwear offer leak protection when sleeping, making this diaper a great overnight option. 

Bowel Incontinence Friendly

Safe plastic heat-safe snaps create the best way to quickly and cleanly remove used adult diapers. Coupled with a spray-pal outfitted in your bathroom, you can swiftly care for your cloth.

That’s it!

In a nut shell, washing cloth breaks down into a simple routine that can fit into any lifestyle. But then questions start to percolate... What do I do with my briefs until it’s time to wash them? How many can I wash at one time? Can I wash them with regular clothing loads? Will they smell? Don’t worry, we got you.

Click here for in-depth answers that will cover questions you don’t even have yet. Switching from disposables to cloth can be seen as a dramatic change, but with a little education you will be well prepared to make a great decision, and it won't seem so hard anymore. I promise!    -Laura Woj
