turn Hollister sent me some new bags, I haven't liked anything, so far.  I like the one that you can change twice a day, then throw the bag away.  But I haven't found the filter system to help the gas smell.  Also, tried a couple of other ones that the filter doesn't seem to be doing the job.  Can some recommend one and let me know the number that goes with it.  I hate the bloat from the gas that the other system gives but I would really like the gas smell to be contained somhow.

I use Hollister M9 deodorizer drops in my pouch, and it completely neutralizes the odor. If I get air in the pouch, I just go to the bathroom and empty it to flatten it out.

I haven't noticed that the hollister bags with filters work that much. I use the M9 too. When there is a huge amount of air I just open the top of the tupperware lid and press the air out, in private of course.
Those things we keep trying to do get easier not because the feat gets easier but our ability to "do" gets better.

I use the Hollister with filter's and they work great! The only time it puffs up is when there is runny poop blocking the filter. I use "Adapt" lubricating deodorant and it really cuts down on any smell emanating out of the filter. If my pouch does fill, I "burp" it and blame the smell on our Pugs. LOL.
