Plastic pants are a popular choice for use over regular underwear, cloth products, and even over disposables for extra protection. While the basic functionality of plastic pants is fairly simple, there are many different varieties of pants available ranging in gauges of plastic, colors, prints, and materials.
When most people think of plastic pants, they usually think of the plastic pant that made them popular – the Gerber plastic pant used by millions of parents using cloth diapers. These durable vinyl pants were the staple for years and are easily found in most department stores up to toddler size.
Tiger Step-Ins plastic pants, however, are not your traditional plastic pant.
The pants come in either a milky white (with a slightly yellowish tint) or a royal blue color with white trim. The milky white pants feel like a mix between vinyl and a more rubber-like material. They are very soft and quiet. They tend to run large, so ordering a size smaller than you need usually works best.
Their blue pant is made of a different material and feels almost like a heavy-gauge, embossed waterproof mattress cover material. They too tend to run large based on the sizing on the Tiger website.
The Tiger StepIns have testimonials from several buyers, including one from Camp Kirk, a summer camp for kids with ADD, ADHD and bed-wetting/incontinence. The company also manufactures a four-layer pair of briefs suitable for night-time use or for kids with mild daytime wetting issues.
Like most plastic pants, it is recommended they be hand-washed and not used in a clothes dryer.
We will have a more thorough review of the Step-Ins in our product review category here soon.
