If anyone wants to get rich they need to invent a light weight "manty" liner that is shaped like a athletic cup for us guys that need just a little boost for those few drips and dribbles we get.

Currently back to using one of those women's "Poise", I believe, light pad, the problem is, its too skinny side to side, so that little dribble or whatever can still slip down the side of my pants leg, but the regular Mens's Depends Pads are way more than I need and feel too baulky. There's got to be something in between, I am open to suggestion. At the point where I am using the one pad all day, and nothing at night .

These may be close to what you are looking for. I've been using them for a couple of years. See link for details.

 ...Hey Dave I forgot who posted about the very thing you're talking about with the "Poise" lite days liner..... said he would place two pads next to each other in his shorts and presto...no more problem, sounded like a pretty simple fix to me, or at least worth a shot.

Hey Guys,  I have written Kimberly-Clark the parent company that makes Depends Guards.  I am trying to get them to look into making a ultra thin liner that is more suited for men to use.  I gave them my cell number and told them I would be willing to talk to someone about the idea.  The reason I am pushing this effort is because at age 45 I hope I have many more years of "Manty Liners" ahead of me!
 
I will let you all know what if anything happens!
