So with me now having to wear 24/7 and the fact that adult diapers are not cheap. I have decided to go ahead and give cloth diapers a try, to help combat the financial aspects off needing to wear diapers. I am not going full cloth, just during the nights sense I am not always wet in the morning and when I am at home and around the house. I purchased mine from HappyEndings Eco, to which I've already had the opportunity to test them during the day and during the night. Overall they are good and work great, however I have already had an incident to were I had soaked through a pair thus wetting my office chair but I didn't find out until I got up. I don't blame the diaper but only myself for not putting enough inserts in. I am although still new to cloth so I need to tweak things to fit my incontinence. But I would say that I do find it hard to tell if I am wet or not I don't know if that just me or is that a cloth thing?

I wish I could make cloth work, but the heat from the plastic pants and the feeling on my legs kills me. :(

I hope you were wearing black, or at least dark colored slacks. Incontinence management requires continual adjustments in our protection; cloth is no exception. So many factors, such as fluid intake, perspiration, local relative humidity, and protection absorbency, to name just a few, that must be considered mean flexibility will always be necessary.

@Patrick: I actually only tried them at home, so I was just wearing lounge wear.

@Bob- I bought myself an office chair from Costco that is a plastic mesh. No upholstered padding to dampen. Just a mesh that dries out like a webbed lawn chair.

Jesse, cloth is great. It will require some experimentation and then you will love it.
