Review & Notes: The new Dry 24/7 is now made in the USA, and still claims the title of "most absorbent adult diaper". 95 ounces is unmatched by any product we have ever tested (and we test a lot). This incredible absorbency combined with low press out make a great all around performer. Note that the sizing on the Dry 24/7 is larger than the others, which may work for some people and not for others.

Review & Notes: The Seni Quatro moves confidently into position as the best performing soft backed diaper we have ever tested, and the second best, among all products. Combined with great features such as front and rear waistbands, a soft but sturdy outer cover and extremely competitive pricing, the Seni Quatro is one of the best values around. the v.s version of the quatro adds a targeted acquisition layer that improves the acquisition rate and promotes skin dryness.

Review & Notes: Still one of the best adult diapers on the market, The Abena X-Plus brings absorbency in a big way. Soaking up over 1/2 gallon of liquid, it actually emptied our test container, yet under the weight of 150 lbs. just 1 ounce of liquid was forced back out. Available in both "original" plastic and newer Premium (soft cover) styles, this has been our most popular product for several years now.

Review & Notes: Abena's value line certainly does not skimp on performance. Although the Delta lacks the ultimate capacity of the X-plus and gives up some press-out performance, it nonetheless runs neck and neck with the x-plus for absorbency, at a lower cost.

Review & Notes: Another strong performer from Abena. The Super offers very good capacity in a much thinner package than the X-Plus. Cost per ounce is among the best, and press-out performance is outstanding, giving a comfortable feeling against the skin.

Review & Notes: Don't let the usable capacity number fool you. The Molicare Super Plus punches well above it weight, with a a heavy bias towards cellulose fluff instead of gel. Although this gives a lower total capacity, it pays big dividends in acquisition rate and wicking performance. At 7.3 ounces per minute, the Molicare Super Plus absorbs over three times as fast as competing products like Dry 24/7. This gives unbeatable performance for night use or other situations where sudden floods need to be effectively contained.

Review & Notes: The Molicare super was the surprise of the test, offering incredible capacity in a very slim brief. Heavy 'gel' construction makes it slow to absorb, but the performance is good nonetheless.

Review & Notes: Attends have a unique square leg cut that looks odd but is very comfortable for most people. Great padding coverage, double waistbands and six tapes make this a long-standing favorite where discreetness and comfort are priorities.
Notes:
  1. Capacity is measured by applying water to the center of the diaper thru a 1/8" opening. See our testing methodology for a full description of this and other tests.
  2. Cost per brief and cost per ounce are based on case prices.
