Patented is an absorption article such as a pant diaper, having a liquid-permeable topsheet, a liquid-impermeable backsheet and an absorption body positioned between. The article has a front end portion, a rear end portion and a crotch portion. The rear end portion and the adjacent part of the crotch portion has a transverse elastic system, a rear leg elastic system which runs between the two longitudinal side edges of the article along the leg cutout of the article in the rear part of the crotch portion and crosses the crotch portion essentially parallel to the transverse center line of the article. On each side of the absorption body the article has a pocket for temporary storage of liquid. The extent of the pocket is limited by the longitudinal side edge of the absorption body, the transverse elastic system and the rear leg elastic system.
