While I have posted on the products that I use to manage my bedwetting, I haven’t explicitly endorsed any. Until now.
When I travel, I wear a plastic pant over the stretch panty and Tena Night Super pad that I wear every night. In the past, it’s been a lightweight, waterproof, pull-on nylon pant, which is compact and easy to rinse off and dry.
I have had lined PUL wraps for many years. I hadn’t used them as much as the pull-on pants. I thought that the pull-on would be less likely to leak out the side. (I’m a side-sleeper.) I also thought that they would not be as easy to quick-clean and dry as a nylon pant.
On a trip this spring, I tried the PUL wrap instead of the nylon pant. I (correctly) expected some hot nights. PUL is breathable, so I thought (correctly) that it would be more comfortable than the nylon pant. I was on a multi-city trip, and forgot the stretch panty in my hotel. For the rest of the trip, it was a pad directly under the PUL wrap. That was as comfortable as wearing a stretch panty with no plastic pant at all.
It was a revelation. PUL is apparently the material of choice for baby diaper covers, and I can see why. It is waterproof but breathable, light and comfortable against the skin. The wrap I used was lined with something called “alova suede“, a microfiber that is even nicer than cotton against the skin. The wrap holds the pad in place even better than the stretch pant, and catches – and holds – the occasional leak.
I now wear the PUL cover every night, without a stretch panty. The wraps I use are from a company called Dependeco, which sells them on eBay. Dependeco also sells a PUL all-in-one (a pant with an absorbent liner sewn in), a PUL pocket diaper (a cover with a pocket for a pad or soaker) and other reusable items.
I can’t endorse these wraps too highly. I’ve had a number of leaks (some fairly substantial) from the pad, but none have made it past the wrap. They are wonderfully comfortable, light and breathable. The cut and the double hook-and-loop fastening make them feel as though they were tailored for me. They have some stretch, too, so they hold the pad close to the skin without constricting.
They are also amazingly durable and undemanding. I have been machine washing and drying them at least once a week with the regular cottons, with no apparent wear.
The customer service is also exemplary. The owner has responded quickly to my questions. She apparently makes the wraps to order, but they ship the same or next day. They are reasonably priced for such an excellent and durable product.
This may be the most satisfactory product I have used in 20ish years as a bedwetter.
