It sounds like a lot of people have had issues with leaking. I did too until I discovered a product that was like second skin. I can't recall the name, unfortunately, but it was a game changer (I can look it up in case anyone is interested). No more leaks and I could wear the bag for over a week. The point being that it gave me the confidence to throw in the towel if I ever get sick of my J Pouch.
There are times that I wish I had kept the bag. Life might have been easier but I'm still too vain at the moment and I'm not ready to give up my wardrobe or waist cinching tops and dresses.
