I don't use these personnaly. I got them for my Dad who has "leaking" problems. He didn't want to wear the "briefs" as he's a "boxer" man. When I found Boxer's which had the pouch for the pads he agreed to get them. Everything went well until I noticed there was an odor again and asked if he needed more pads. He said he'd gotten some at one of the local stores but they didn't work as well. I went ahead and ordered him more of the original ones and he has been back to using them. There is no odor and his clothes stay dry. I was also impressed with the boxers.
