Threaded Armor are the adult range from the same company that makes Super Undies. These are technically a nappy rather than pants however Protective Briefs are designed to NOT look like a nappy. They are world-class waterproof incontinence underwear with flexible absorbency!
These Protective Briefs are by far the most absorbent option of their range.
Waterproof gussets fully line both sides, locking in wetness. Extra insurance by day, but a complete necessity for heavy nighttime wetting and side sleepers.
Waterproof top-end gussets line the front and back of these undies, ready to hold back wetness for tummy sleepers and heavy wetters.
Soft comfy fleece lines the waterproof tabs that securely hug your hips, keeping everything locked in place, while feeling like a dreamy cloud.
Ultralight ribbons in the top-end gussets hold snaps, ready to securely keep your insert in place. No shifty movement in this absorbency, it stays where it needs to be!
Protective Briefs are for men and woman. The pattern does not change for gender. The absorbency may be placed in more strategic areas based on your needs. Ladies: use the Flexible Absorbency System laid flat and snapped in from front to back. Gentlemen: At night and if necessary, feel free to fold a Step-up insert in half and place it in front, where more absorbency will be required.

The VAT Policy for incontinence products is complicated for both customers and suppliers. We've tried to simplify it below.
The incontinence products for sale on our site DO NOT have VAT added to them. We have already removed it before you purchase them. This VAT rate is classified as the Zero rate of VAT.
Why do they not have VAT?
Incontinence products are eligible for Zero-Rated VAT because they are classed as part of the VAT Notice 701/7: VAT reliefs for disabled and older people.
The information contained in the link is vital to how the Government determines why and who should get the zero rate of VAT. Please read the information in this leaflet for a more in-depth explanation of the VAT Notice.
Who is eligible to purchase VAT free incontinence products?
If you are ‘chronically sick or disabled’ you are entitled to pay no VAT on Zero-Rated products. You DO NOT have to be means-tested, registered disabled or receive disability benefits to qualify for the Zero-Rated products.
A person is classified as ‘chronically sick or disabled’ if he/she is a person with:
Physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her ability to carry out everyday activities.
A condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness.
Can my carer buy incontinence products on my behalf and still pay no VAT?
YES. A carer, a partner or anybody for that matter can purchase incontinence products that have Zero-Rated VAT applied if they are acting on behalf of the ‘chronically sick or disabled’ and the products are for the ‘chronically sick or disabled’ personal use.
Who is not included?
The VAT notice states that VAT relief does not include an elderly person who’s not disabled or chronically sick or any individual who's only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb.
How to tell us you are eligible?
On each product page there is a separate box where you can input the name of the person who is eligible for the VAT relief and a tick box to confirm that they fulfill all criteria for eligibility to pay no VAT on eligible products. You do not have to provide any details about your or someone else’s condition.
