Kam, I've been a Darien owner for many years and am aware of the pocket issues. About a year ago, I "killed" my original 1997 Darien coat in an unceremonious "get-off" and replaced it with a new one. The first thing I did was use Seam-Seal on all of the pocket seams on the inside of the coat. I've some miles on this set up, now, and, so far, have had no issues.
One thing I noticed on my old coat was the pockets, particularly the slash pockets, never leaked when I was on my Harleys or BMW K-bikes. When I got my '09 GSA, though, the slash pockets leaked. I guess it had to do with riding position.
By the way, I've had more riding suits than Carter has pills, i.e., Klim, BMW, Tourmaster, Belstaff, etc. The Darien, with the modifications I mention, has been the best overall.
