AnotherUCwife- yeah, those are probably the ones I am going to order this time as well. There is just a version with the filter that has that white fabric-like stuff on both sides, and you can't see stool at all through the pouch like you sort of can with the plain opaque plastic. I sew pouch covers for my appliances anyway, because without them the corners of the pouches always scratch my legs, so it isn't a huge deal. I took another Convatec wafer off today and everything looked perfect underneath. My skin seems to really love them (for now anyway), and I reckon that is the most important thing. I am still going to write Convatec with a couple of suggestions though.
Stripey- that is true about
the faster drying time. That is definitely an advantage of only having the fabric on one side.
