This green alternative is what everyone has been asking for. Designed like plastic pants sandwiched inside a cloth brief, they provide 100% discreet waterproof protection. These are a great upgrade over the old vinyl pants. While not absorbent, they effectively prevent any stool or urine leakage to the outside of clothing. They are perfect for preventing leakage from disposables. Only the user will know that these are any different from regular cotton briefs. Breathable cotton sides are not waterproof so these briefs are best used in the daytime, in an upright position. These pants cannot be used in conjunction with bedwetting alarms which use moisture detectors outside the pants.
