Hi Eric, I think that a big plus on this will be the fact its kind to skin and adapting well to different body shapes. Those 2 points make for a Happy Ostomate, Cheers for the review. As rating we could have the smile test for different products reviewed lol.

I've been told that my thumbnails give away the conclusion! LOL

Yes, the wafer technology and conformability of the tape border is a very strong combination!

I tried the convex version (#8990) of this Hollister product - precut to 3/4" (19mm). I currently use a Hollister 2-piece, ceraplus system and have liked it. I echo Eric's sentiments about the "cheap" fabric fraying. Additionally, even tho' you're supposed to be able to tuck the tail up into the pouch, it just falls out eventually. This is very annoying as I am a petite person and this pouch is way too long for my frame. I have the same length problem with the 2-piece, but I end up sticking velcro dots on the tail and right under the flange which allows me to fold up the pouch to about 7" and it's perfect. The wafer size is large for someone with a small frame, low weight - really too big for me. Finally - the filter - as with any one piece, there is no way to "burp" the bag, and for me, the filter became quickly clogged and useless. I tried putting an osto-vent on the bag, but ... well, I guess I'm not a fan of going to a bunch of extra prep work outside of my "dots". For now, I'm staying with a 2-piece.

Thank you sharing that! I resort to using the velcro trick to keep the outlet up sometimes. It's a shame we have to do that, but it does still work.

Hi. Thank you for your great review. Am looking forward to trying this pouch when we get it in N.Zealand. The pouch I use is Pelican 1 piece, which is the best I have tried so far ( 9 years on)! It has an inspection window and a velcro dot to keep the tail up. And stays on. But I am still waiting for the miracle pouch to be made!? Cheers and good luck to all. Ngaire.

Sounds like the Pelican product is a keeper! Glad to hear it works well for you!

Hi Sami,

Because my stoma isn't indicated for convexity, I probably will never review a convex appliance. I may do product overviews of some convex appliances, but I wouldn't be able to give any real use feedback.

I am 6 months new to the ileostomy life. I love my renewed health. I recently had hernia repair and had to change to 8958 convex hollister appliance. I had to give up my smaller appliances for the convex appliance. I have to give hollister kudos for their customer service. They take their time with you and leave new users feeling more confident. Thank you for your videos. It's helpful for us newbies.

Thanks for the Velcro dot idea to shorten the bag. They are to long for me as well since my torso is shorter.

J'utilise les anneaux Hollister Ceraring avec satisfaction et j'attendais cette poche Ceraplus 1 piece sur support plan avec impatience. Déception ! Ma peau n'a pas supporté l'adhésif périphérique autour de la partie en Ceraplus. Je conserve donc mes poches BBraun Flexima 1 pièce, bien plus tolérante avec ma peau.
