Showers Pass is always looking for new and innovative ways to keep people active. On the tails of their highly acclaimed Crosspoint Waterproof Socks, industry-leading garment manufacturer has moved even further into new territory with their new Tech-Diaper concept. Leveraging its deep knowledge of waterproof, breathable technical garments, Showers Pass created this exciting solution for the hassle of constant diaper changing. It features integrated composting technology designed to move and grow with your child while providing all day protection against excremental blow-out.

The Tech-Diaper, designed for active babies (and parents) on the go, is “the most breathable, waterproof, long-term protection for accidents.”

The system features “dry-lock technology and a patent-pending Bio-gest pad” with a motion-activated enzyme layer for in-diaper composting- the first in the world. The diaper can be installed for up to 12 hours without causing irritation to the baby’s surface.

Showers Pass claims the motion-activated nature of the enzyme layer has the added benefit of allowing the Tech Diaper to develop with whatever infant it is installed. For this, they cite research indicating progressive relationship between infant development, size, excremental output, and movement frequency. Best of all, the Bio-gest pad is biodegradable, meaning that at the end of a long day at the race, the pad can be removed from the infant/Tech-Diaper assembly and discarded in your backyard compost.

This move into infant support technology is driven by in-house need as it was found that over 30% of Showers Pass employees found themselves adopting a parental lifestyle within the past three years. “We saw a need in the diaper industry for a better solution.”

I gotta be honest, this was the first thing I saw on BR today, and while skimming the article, I thought this was legit. Because what better way to test the waterproof-ness of a fabric than to put it on a pee-filled baby!

Wish they had “blow out protection” when I was changing diapers ! Just like I wish they had MTB racing when I was in HS; ok maybe I wish the later more.

And before seeing the date I just assumed this was one of the diapers for “babies” that came triathlete sizes. You know, because… well, that’s the market.

The really funny thing is years ago, in the age of cloth diapers, there were exactly this kind of waterproof overpants for babies commonly available. Disposable diapers with their plastic covering have made these thing obsolete and turned them into an April Fools joke.

No, I was unaware that there is such a thing but, now that you mention it, I guess i’m not surprised. My last diaper experience (cloth and disposables) was over 45 years ago so I’m out of that loop.
