i hear alot of people like easy peasy hemp boosters, *i think* u can get a pack of 5 for £10 on ebay, someone will correct me if i am wrong, or if it's just to try out look on the classifieds for some cheap boosters. or start a thread on fav boosters for pockets and where to buy and people will tell u what they find works etc. i find with vests going up a size is good,u want them looser fitting, leggings if riding up at the sides will come into contqct with the leg cuffs and 'wick' fluid out. personally i love bamboo inserts, i have these in all my pockets, but while being more absorbant they do take longer to dry so u might want a combo of a few in your stash for say wash days etc there are ways of layering them too which work better than others but i can't recall all of these. i generally get 3-4 hours from my pockets which i think is quite average. but def worthposting to ask about what people like and how to use them, goes something like microfibre is quick to absorb but holds water i think, then u want something slower to absorb under it, but which holds more liquid too. someone else will explain it properly though. and good on u for perservering!
