Pocket leaks but not inside covers

Twice today my son's BG 4.0 has leaked. Of course the imagine bamboo flat inside was soaked. The flat has been soaked before inside a flip cover & it didn't leak. Why would it leak out of the pocket? Does the suedecloth cause wicking?
Trying to decide if I want to keep the pocket or
Stick with an AI2 system. I like how the pocket insert doesn't shift but darn those leaks!

Re: Pocket leaks but not inside covers

you are more likely to get leaks with excess moisture compressing and coming back through the suedecloth then rolling off of it (does that even make sense?) than if you have a fully saturated insert in an AI2 .... this is my experience and the best explanation I could come up with... and one of the reasons I don't like pockets!

Re: Pocket leaks but not inside covers

You try double stuffing pocket? What detergent are you using? I know my minky I had didn't seem to hold as much on it... I doubled up on my minky and it held as much as my mf inserts.

This makes sense! Seems like the AI2 almost has a double barrier. I need to stick to an AI2 system because for us, it seems to work best.
Just need a disposable like system for church to use?
