Interesting to hear that about BGs being made in Egypt but finished in the USA. I remember when it was a big deal that all their tags suddenly said "Made in the USA"--apparently before that they were all made in China. Anyway, I haven't been super impressed with the BGs. The 2.0s were a huge improvement over the 1.0s--I like PUL much more than the nylon outer, but I've had issues with the snaps, velcro and elastic. To be fair, Cotton Babies has replaced some stuff for me, even well outside the guarantee period, but I just don't think I'll bother with any more BGs. At $18/diaper I would expect them to last longer and stay looking nicer WAY longer than they do. I have some Swaddlebees pockets that are so old the fleece is nearly transparent in places but the elastic is still in perfect condition.
