The upper layer (3) has a capturing zone (11) and a storing zone (13). Mean basis weight of the absorbent gelling agent particles (9) in the capturing zone (11) is smaller than the mean basis weight of the absorbent gelling agent particles (9) in the storing zone (13). The lower layer (5) is a mixed lower layer having a mixture of the absorbent gelling agent particles (9) and the fiber. The upper layer (3) has a liquid-permeable base material (7) and a layer of the absorbent gelling agent particles (9) attached to this base material (7). Weight of the absorbent gelling agent particles (9) in the mixed lower layer (5) is equal to or less than 70% of the weight of the mixed lower layer (5). The total weight of the absorbent gelling agent particles (9) in the upper layer (3) and the mixed lower layer (5) is at least 80% of the weight of the fiber in the mixed lower layer (5).
