I just tried the Salts 1 piece soft convex, after months on 2 pieces Convatec convex moldable wafer which cost me 113$ for 5 (with bags).The 1 piece Salts cost me...56$ for 5! That’s 1/2 price compare to the Convatec! So far so good. Don’t see a difference except it is slimmer, narrower, and don’t leave glue residues like like the Convatec. I always thought Convatec are too expensive but I liked them, this time I bite the bullet... I didn’t even know 1 piece systems were less expensive until a Salts rep told me so. I bought them from Pro-assist in Quebec. Oh and they stick well.

I don’t have any link to the Salts company.

I don’t know if it’s the same in the US...

By the way don’t buy them from my ostomy.ca: their prices are prohibitive.

The difference is definitely more to do with the fact that it's a 1pc vs 2pc, but I find (here in Canada) that Salts products are priced pretty close to other brands (maybe a little higher). 

Buying 1pc bags is a good way to reduce costs if you don't have insurance. 

Glad you found a product that works better and saves you money!  

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.
