Pockets wicking- what can I do?

I know this has come up before. Share your expertise ladies! I love the fit, but what is the point if clothes are getting damp! Does that waterproofing spray work? Does it go on the inside or outside? Any other ideas? TIA!

Re: FB print wicking- what can I do?

Hmmmm..... I never had problems with the prints and i used mine for 3+ years. The prints are no different then the regular solids because they are also polyester laminate

If you want to try the spray, it goes on the outside and don't get it on the fleece because you don't want the fleece waterproof It's only good for about 25 washes or so. HTH

Maybe you just need more absorbancy

Try more absorbancy. I have found on the few prints (not fb) of covers I use, I need to add more absorbancy or I do get some wicking.

The FB prints shouldn't leak any more than a FB solid because the outer fabric is the same. If you do use waterproof spray, spray the outside, But i would try more absorbancy first to see if that is the issue.

Well, I know HH prints are notorious wickers. Something about the way the prints are made is different from solids or something.
But I have a few FB bug prints, and haven't had any problems, so I'll have to agree that you just need more absorbancy.

Hmmm, everything I've read about rewaterproofing pockets says to turn them inside out & always spray the shiney part not the outside! Also, you can get a stick like waterproofer instead of the spray...easier to get close to the fleece without accidently getting some on it

HH prints are different than fuzzi bunz bugs. The HH prints are laminated cotton and the fuzzi bunz bugs are a polyester laminate fabric just like the solid PUL that they use.

Okay- I have narrowed it down to one offender- it isn't all my prints like I thought. Do you know what brand this stick stuff is and where to get it? TIA!
