So I've heard that goodnites arent that absorbent. I wear goodnites and I have issues with leaks and thought it was because of absorbency. So I used a partially wet goodnite and put it in the shower and turned the water on. The goodnite can hold a lot surprisingly. It eventually exploded though. Not a lot. So goodnites aren't bad at absorbing. It actually held quite a bit. Though I think it would fall off before it exploded.
