I just posted about this last week. Yes, the filters consistently leak... at least for me, and I don't even have very watery output. I wrote Convatec about and would suggest doing the same so that they can redesign them if they hear from enough people. I never had Coloplast filters leak. Not sure about Hollister. I am trying my first sample of those today. Still, I am liking Convatec best so fa,r so I plan to just buy the pouches without the filters. In the meantime, covering the filter opening on the outside with one of those stickers they provide seemed to work well and prevented it from leaking.
