Abena Abri-Flex Review

By: Damon McClure on August 03, 2017

Bottom Line

For those with mild to moderate incontinence, Abena Abri-Flex pull on disposable underwear provide both protection and dignity. Just like standard underwear, they can be pulled on and off -- or can be torn away quickly for easy clean up.

Pros

  • Cloth-like outer covering is breathable, soft
  • Good absorbency
  • Easy to remove and discard

Cons

  • Not effective for severe incontinence

Breaking it down

Performance

High absorbency, low leakage. These Abena Abri-Flex adult pull-ups are available in a variety of sizes and absorption levels, maxing out at 74 ounces. That's as much or more than all but the most absorbent adult diapers, making Abena Abri-Flex a good alternative for everyday use by those with mild to moderate incontinence. Users seem very pleased -- ratings for the various sizes and absorbency ratings are high, and the briefs are often complimented for being discreet to wear while providing excellent absorption and leakage protection.

Ease of use

Comfortable to wear; quick to remove. Abena Abri-Flex adult pull-ups can be put on or taken off like standard underwear, and the elasticized waistband and crotch area make for a snug but comfortable fit. In addition, like Tranquility Premium Overnight Underwear (Est. $55 for a pack of 72), Abena Abri-Flex has tear-away side-seams for easy removal and disposal.

Odor absorption

Core material reduces the risk of unwanted smells. Abena Abri-Flex has an advanced super-absorbent core designed to securely trap fluids, preventing the release of odors. Reviews are relatively silent on how well it works, though we spotted no complaints of odor issues.

XPMedical.com is a retailer website that tests its products in a laboratory for absorbency, wicking and other capabilities. It calls Abri-Flex protective underwear "perhaps the finest pullups available anywhere" and praises their comfortable fit, super-soft material and superior absorbency. The website also says the diapers are the most absorbent pull-ups tested to date. However, unlike what the site does in regards to standard adult diapers, their testing method isn't documented.

Contributors to Amazon.com, As of August 2017

We spotted over 300 reviews of Abena Abri-Flex pull-on disposable underwear in various sizes and packaging options, including more than 130 for the medium size in a pack of 14. Regardless, ratings are generally strong; it earns a 4.2-star rating in this version, while other versions score similarly or even a touch higher.

This adult diaper retailer offers a comparison chart of various types of adult diapers and pull-on underwear. Though it doesn't rate at the very top, Abri-Flex Premium Underwear is in the first tier of pull-on products with absorbency that's rated as "heavy." However, the company does not appear to have done any formal testing on the products.

Editors of NationalIncontinence.com, Not Dated

This comparison chart gives the Abena Abri-Flex a "Best" rating and praises the product's stand-up leak guards, wetness indicator and tear-away seams. However, NationalIncontinence.com does not explain the methodology for the ratings.
