This diaper fastens exactly like a disposable, and I think that's why my husband always grabs it first. Front stuffing pockets are always a plus in my book to avoid the mess with pockets in the back. I always love bamboo velour for the soft snuggly feel next to baby's bottom, and it doesn't pill like fleece or suedecloth. I toss these in the dryer on low and it comes out feeling like new every time. Babykicks inserts are by far the best for absorbency and drying time. Plus, I love that if I don't want to stuff the pocket I can just lay the insert inside the pocket next to baby's skin and it functions like a cover. This diaper is tops in my ranking of 15 brands I've tried because of the trim cut betweeen the legs and trimness of the insert. I realize cloth diapers will always be bulkier than disposables, but this are the trimmest I've found to fit under clothes while still absorbing a lot of liquid.
