I use the overnight pads during the day, They aren't perfect, but they work better than the larger day pads. Ninety-eight percent of the time, I stay dry. The pads are very absorbent for someone with heavy urine leakage and who doesn't need to wear a diaper. I don't worry much about leaks with these. I just have to pay attention to how much urine I leak, so I don't reach overcapacity. I would not use these for overnight, however. i require much more coverage when I sleep.
