What Is an Incontinence Pad or Sleeve? 

Simply put, an incontinence pad or sleeve is a product designed to absorb leaks. With high-quality incontinence products, you can also have more freedom of movement since you don’t always have to worry about finding a bathroom in time to manage leaks. 

Here at MDP, our sleeves are designed specifically for busy men on the go. Whether you’re picking up the grandkids, making an early morning tee time, or impressing your bosses on the boardroom floor, they’ll keep you protected, confident, and dry throughout the day. 

Nearly 12 million men across the United States are dealing with some form of urinary incontinence symptoms, and they deserve a product they can rely on. Here at MDP, we’re proud to offer exactly what men are asking for: a product that’s reliable, affordable, and effective. 

Thanks to the two-strap configuration of MDP, our sleeves can be adjusted to fit your unique anatomy, so there’s no worry about slipping or discomfort. They’re also designed for use with any undergarment, so you can stick to the wardrobe you love. The breathable, moisture-wicking materials allow you to hit the gym or the yardwork with confidence, and be carefree, no matter where you are.

We’re sharing all you need to know about incontinence support options, so you can pick out the best method for your needs and feel supported and protected by products you can trust. 

What Can an Incontinence Pad Be Used For? 

An incontinence pad or sleeve can be used for many different things, which is why they come in a wide variety of sizes and fits. The absorbency, too, will differ, depending on your specific needs, so you always want to consider the incontinence requirements you’ll be meeting before picking out the right product. 

Incontinence pads can be used for many incontinence needs, from complete support throughout the day to lighter, or small options like MDP, for dripping and spotting. If you begin to notice changes in certain bodily functions, incontinence pads and sleeves can provide that little extra protection and give you insight into specific changes to discuss with your doctor. 

Incontinence pads and sleeves are also a good support system after surgery or when recovering from an illness. They help to provide greater body autonomy and agency, and allow you to get back on your feet more quickly, so you can return to the things you like doing best. 

Incontinence Pad Capacity Explained 

One of the things that sets the incontinence sleeves at Male Drip Protection apart is that they’re specifically designed for light incontinence, such as small leaks, dribbles, and spotting. In many cases, men will reach for ill-fitting alternatives that either don’t stay in place, or provide way more absorbency than needed for light incontinence. 

As menstrual pads are designed for menstruating women, MDP is specifically designed for men with light urinary incontinence. There are many different absorbency levels of incontinence sleeves, pads, guards, shields, and briefs for men, so you can find something to meet your needs, whether you need coverage for full bladder voiding, or a little extra protection from leakage throughout the day. 

Because MDP incontinence sleeves are made specifically to fit right onto the male anatomy, you’ll be able to avoid the bulky appearance of many other incontinence products, which is why MDP helps prevent the embarrassment and discomfort of coping with urinary incontinence, and does so discretely, effectively, and comfortably. 

MDP is proud to offer our incontinence sleeves to men managing light urinary incontinence. They’re easy to take on and off, which means you can replace them if you go to the bathroom, and our dual-strap BodyID technology means that MDP provides a customizable fit for every man’s unique body. 

You’ll be able to customize and adjust them to fit your form, and thereby ensure they continue to do their job throughout the day. 


Incontinence doesn’t get to take away your confidence, agency, or autonomy, and MDP is part of the solution. The incontinence sleeves made by MDP are specifically designed to provide relief to loved ones feeling isolated due to incontinence symptoms, and can change the way a man overcomes light urinary incontinence. 

MDP is crafted with the busy man in mind, so you can continue booking trips, trying new restaurants, and meeting friends without worrying. With custom fitting straps that can be adjusted to maintain a secure fit for every man, MDP will help you regain the confidence of knowing that light urinary incontinence is no longer something to worry about. While MDP may only hold two ounces, it provides exactly what you need to effectively manage drips and leakage throughout the day.

Incontinence shouldn’t stop you from living your best life with the ones you love. Try MDP today and see the difference it can make for you, then tell us about it so we can share your success with other men around the country.
