Flip cover as swim diaper?

Has anyone had any failures with using a Flip cover as a swim diaper? The only noticeable difference between the swim diaper we have and a Flip is that the elastic in the front. Sized right and snapped tight enough it should create enough of a seal, in my opinion.

Thoughts?

I would not do i as you will have pul right up against babies skin. A pocket would be better as you still have a layer of fabric between baby and the pul lining.

Many people use pockets.

Yeah I don't think exposed pul would be comfortable at all.

Would the chlorine be bad for the pul?

Over time it will break down the PUL, so I would recommend having a dedicated diaper for swim diaper purposes.
