I am a younger person that unfortunately has severe spinal issues, including acquired Cauda Equina due to medical. dr. neglect, which has left me permanently & completely incontinentl, with no hope of corrective surgery at this point.I am stuck using adult diapers for ever & have used EVERY single brand out there - they ALL LEAK. This is by far, the best diaper available since it has the highest rate of absorbancy with a total absorbancy of 75 ounces.(initial absorbancy is 65 oz w/ 840 seconds of acquisition time, 2nd rate is an additional 10 oz at 100 seconds). These Danish made briefs blow away any made in the U.S.- Attends Extended Wear are next best on the list (compared to Abena products) at a total absorbancy rate of only 59 oz., then Molicare Super Plus at only 45 oz total.Even though these are the highest rated, the price tag follows suit (I have a hard time justifying the price for only 14 which last me less than a week, as compared to others w/ a 22 or even 24 count), especially since Medicare doesn't cover their cost. Another drawback is that (like every other diaper), they LEAK if you're in a standing/ upright position & often if I can catch myself going (since I have no feeling anymore) if I lean forward on something it does help move everything up more toward the absorbant padding. These absolutely do not keep you dry to any extent if you need them for heavy use, especially since they do take some time to soak up any 'fluid'. Another drawback is the fact that the plastic backing tends to keep any body heat in there & at least for me, causes me to get really hot & perspire . . . a LOT. Though drugstore.com doesn't carry them, these are available in Abena's 'AIR PLUS" style which is a more breathable paper like diaper - though they're not perfect either, they are much better than the plastic (which I've found has been advertised on some other websites to carry the California warning label - same as electrical plugs, etc. that contains some type of chemical that has been found responsible for cancer) Being that these are mfg. in Denmark, maybe they are not aware of the requirement to display this warning on the packaging - who knows. But is of some concern to me as well.All in all, despite the problems I personally have with these diapers, they still are the best available on the market. I do order these when I'm in a lurch, [...] This product line (medium x-plus) is also referenced as Abena M4 (original plastic or AIR Plus backing), then there are the M3's that I'm looking for in AIR Plus which are the next level down w/ a better count of 22/pkg for approx the same price, if drugstore.com ever decides to carry that line. M2 (Medium Supers) have 24/pkg, but for me they don't quite do the job & need Abena's booster pads (which drugstore.com stopped carrying for some reason).Whatever the case, Abena is still the number 1 mfg of decent adult diapers over all the competition. It is a shame that there aren't any U.S. companies that will follow suit to accomodate people stuck using these things - eespecially Depends (which are the worst). If ever curious, you can always go to xpmedical.com/dtest.html to check out the different absorbancy levels for the most popular diaperson the market yet.

I have read the reviews, and most are right on. As a totally incontinent adult, I look for value, comfort and usefulness. These briefs are a bit expensive, but very absorbent. I have tried almost every other brand on the market and these are about the most absorbent, but even when wearing this diaper overnight, the tapes do NOT hold. I had to use adhesive tape to secure them. Will just add my own tape going forward. Would NOT recommend these briefs for daily wear for an active person. Too bad, because these are rather expensive.

    Absolutely amazing overnight protection. My incontinence is only at night, and is a bit sporadic. I have found that protective underwear doesn't cut it, and other national brand diapers aren't good overnight. These may be overkill if you don't have heavy voids, but I sleep very comfortably, knowing that it won't leak.
    As I said, they could be a bit wider, and maybe have better odor control, but Abena M4 is hands down the best overnight diaper I have ever used.

      I used them for night time wetting. These diapers have come along way and I hope they listen to the customers. Many don't want to see the M4 go cloth like the rest of the indrustry. The cloth holds moisture in the outer later around the legs creating rashs. so Abri-form keep the plastic. You have imploved the taping system alot but I feel you could do more like adding a landing zone on the front of the breif to keep it tight while wet and starts to sage before you can change. I hope you keep this great product line going, they are one of the best out there and I would hate to see it go backwards

          It's dificult to find an adult diaper that almost never leaks, but this is one of them. It may be a bit pricy, but I would say that it is worth it. This diaper is very comfortable and will hold about 3 wettings before needing to be changed. If you are going to wear a diaper, you might as well buy one that will not leak on you.

                when the two packs arrived here, there was no phone number on the packs so that I could phone them to ask if prior to opening the packs, whether these were pull-uppable. So I phone Drugstore.com whose personnel were unable to provide that info.

                  I have tried many products over the years and this has to be one of the best. Great when your protection can't fail or if frequent changes are not an option. Want to go to the ball game and have a couple of beers or a bottle of water? How about going to the movies and having a soda? These hold up. I would never try that with a product like Depends.

                    This diaper is great for overnight use with no leaks. Just make sure you get it on fairy snug around your legs. This diaper is also excellent for long airplane flights. However with all the hysteria about underwear bombers it is better to wear a dry pullup or very thin diaper to go through security. Once through security find a restroom and put on the Abena diaper. It is great not to panic when they turn on the seat belt light for long periods of time during the flights.

                      These briefs fit well, hold their shape when full and simply DO NOT LEAK. The X-Plus cloth backed are just as absorbent and comfortable but do tend to stretch when full.
