Hi Lea, I've also noticed that the newer bags are louder than the previous ones.

Now that I've worn them for many, many months, it's not as noticeable as it was originally, but it most certainly is louder than I would like.

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

...just need to say...I wear the Hollister 8331 and noticed it was louder immediately. and the plastic was no longer opaque.  I was told the company could not access the original plastic due to COVID19.

Hmmm. I'm not aware of any manufacturing shortages for these products, but that would be concerning if true. I'm still working off of bags I purchased earlier in 2020, so I can't say whether the most recent shipments would be different. 

Was a note or something included in the package? There was when they changed to chlorine-free plastic. 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

Also seems that the newer bags let odor seep through sooner especially the clear ones!

@dmatter...Ugh!!🤦‍♀️...!!! So its not just me. My dog picked up on it too after such a very long time of not noticing anything unless there was a leak. 🙄.  Any confidence I gained is literally in the sewer right now. Maybe B.C. MEDICAL  wants to pay for this thru bag changes every 1 or 2 days?? Hmmm......I have nothing nice to say about this.
