i just read the post about compression wicking and it is making me leary of wool when not at home. umm but where could i get a nylon cover and are they good in summer. are they cooler than a pul cover.

The nylon covers are good for the summer and the you can either go to BRU and get their Especially for Baby brand (very cheap) or you can get a Bummis Whisper Pull-on pants--I think LilBunz sells them, or maybe NaturalBabies.
Oh, and I haven't had compression wicking with the Angeldry wool interlock cover, but I have had it with the Stacinator stretch. With wool soakers, I sometimes do and sometimes don't get the compression wicking (depending on how much she's wet and how long she's been in the car seat). I'm suspecting I might not get as much with a crocheted wool soaker.

Walmart sells the gerber brand 6 for 4.98. I was just checking out who had what in my area.

Indeed, the Gerber ones are really cheap, but beware of the binding material used around the tighs and waist. I found it to be rather scratchy and also, they are made of 100% vinyl. Don't know if that is the same as 100% nylon in terms of breathability. I really like Dappi covers. They are very similar to Bummis whisper pants and much cheaper - 2 for $4.99 at my local Buy Buy Baby. My all time favorite nylon cover though is by Babykins. I like them better than Bummis and Dappi because they are the softest, thinnest of them all. It's almost like wearing no cover at all. HTH.

If you are getting a stretch wool interlock cover from Angelwraps, those suckers are bomb proof! I think they would be pretty immune to compression wicking, barring any catastrophes. I got Bummi's whisper pants from www.lilbunz.com They run big!

Ummmm- Tarah - did you mean AngelDry or Angelwrap?
We LOVE our AngelDry stuff - Steph even converted her wool jersey cover to a WIO for me. Dirt cheap for a WIO. So now we have a wool interlock cover, a fleece cover and a WIO. And I'll get more if I can sell off some other stuff and get some Paypal funds.

I like the ones at www.weebees.com (sidesnapping). Sometimes Yvonne has some Alexis ones at www.orangestarfish.com. I have found Dappi/Especially For Baby NYLON pull-ons at BRU. They are nylon and pretty nice, don't get the vinyl Gerber ones.
The Bummis whisper pants are awesome and very reasonable. Not sure who has them now; I got mine a long time ago at www.punkinbutt.com. HTH!

I also like the Zippidy side snaps - like the old alexis side snaps, plus with softer binding (like the dappi) and plastic snaps.
I cannot for the life of me remember where I got them (I got them 4 yrs ago and just found them in my stash boxes!)- I'm all excited I can use them again!
Aha! This is where I got them:

Make sure they are nylon and not vinyl and you will be fine in the summer. I have some alexis pull on nylon covers from ebay (I got them pretty cheap too!) and they are great. I've never, ever had a leak with these, even runny poo and never had any carseat compression problems. They hold up pretty well in the wash too! granitesmith on ebay sells them, I think she is the only one that still does because from my understanding they are discontinued but I could be wrong. I bought mine a year ago.

Don't mean to hijack, but I have three Alexis Featherlight Pull One nylon covers and they leak all the time, within like 30 minutes of putting them on. Yeah, it's like having no cover at all, but not in a good way! I did buy them used; they are the style with three snaps on each side. They just wick moisture immediately.
I do like how thin they are and so many other people like them; any idea why mine are such a bust? Does nylon break down over time?

I think over time just about anything can wear out. I'd say that maybe they are just not leakproof anymore I have 2 of these exact same covers from my now 6 yr old. They were stored for 3 yrs and they do not wick. One is a tad yellow but does not leak.
