Olive Waterproof Velcro EcaPants Reviews


Love them!


Pros: Super fast for EC, not bulky, nothing else compares for ease of use with EC

Cons: Some leaking around son's skinny legs after 18mos, some initial pilling on knit outers

When I first saw EcaPants and my son was tiny, I thought, "What a silly product. A cloth diaper with just an added belt to attach it."  Boy, was I off the mark. We EC'd with cloth diaper backup from birth, and it got really tiresome laying the baby down, getting the same (still clean) diaper re-positioned, and fastening it back on him. By the time DS was standing on his own, I was ready for a change. I found three used EcaPants for a good price. Then I was hooked. I stalked the used sources and found a couple more, but ended up biting the bullet and buying another 12 of them retail. That I would buy them retail is saying a lot: I'm quite the cheapskate in...

Pros: cute, easy to use, wide range of fit

Cons: might be hard for a toddler to take off by himself (that might be a pro...)

I bought a pair of EcaPants (not these olive ones, mine are actually not waterproof and they have the rocket print) to try them out on my son, and I love them. We use them around the house when we're home for the afternoon. I think they are super cute and trim. They are also easy to put on--even if the baby is crawling away from me, a big problem for us these days. I keep meaning to buy some more, but for now we're still using the diapers that we have been for a while. 

hooray for ecapants!


Pros: makes EC easier! my son loves them.

Cons: want more!

i have picked up a handful of these trainers and we like them a lot!  i wish we had a few more.  while they seem expensive, you can see the care that goes into making them.  and that really proves that the price is reasonable.  they are not made in a chinese sweatshop!     the maker of ecapants personally takes care of you and provides amazing customer service.     most of the ecapants we have are aplix, which we find easier.  but we have one pair of snaps and that is just too difficult for us.  but that is just our preference.     and our son very much prefers these over diapers!  probably because they are...

Ecaware ecapants


Pros: easy to open/clos, fun colors, trim, just enough absorbancy,

Cons: the velcro is not as strong as I would like- every now and then it comes undone.

I purchased ecapants way back when Lisa was first starting her business and in need of testers. I loved them immediately. They fit my baby at six months old perfect (size medium) and they were so much easier to use that other trainers that pull up and down.  I purchased the waterproof ecapants and was very glad I did. They do hold a miss in very well. I never had a leak with one miss...even when it was a pretty big one.   That was 4 years ago. Now I have another baby who I purchased ecapants for. This time I purchased the current style as well, with the pocket. The pocket is a great addition, but even without the insert ecapants hold in a miss just fine, without any...

Love these trainers


Pros: EASY to get on a mobile baby, flexible fit, trim, great customer service

Cons: just a tad wick-y

I have 4 of these diapers and wish I had more. 2 of the older style and 2 of the newer style. My 1 yr old daughter is actually in one right now. :) I love these trainers. They are my go to when we go out because they are the easiest to use in a public restroom setting. We use them at home too in a rotation of non-waterproof trainers. They are trim because they are meant to hold only one wet, which is exactly what I want. They do tend to wick at the legs in our experience but it's not enough to require a pants change. I have the waterproof style. I wish they had fun styles in the waterproof ones! :)
