I have been using this product for several years and is extremely satisfied with it. This is definitely a product for heavy days. In extreme cases where you may forget to walk with an extra one, it can last as much as 6 to 8 hrs on heavy days. I found out how well it works for heavy flow when I could not find the Super size and used the Regular size instead. That was a huge mistake. I had frequent and regular accidents of overflow. The Super size is truly a product for heavy days and is good for longer hours on no so heavy days. I had the fear of infections before I started using this product because of the number of hours you can use it without having to change, so I chose the unscented type and I have had NO complaints. This is truly a great product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
