How do you like these covers? We would be using them over snappied prefolds or cotton fitteds (probably GMD workhorse). I have only used gusseted covers, but am interested in trying something new if these get good reviews. I like the idea of wider, sturdier-looking velcro closures. The flimsiness of the velcro is my prime complaint about the Thirsties covers we have been using. I can't stand snaps, so that isn't an option.

I just ordered 2, but have no babe to use them on yet! They are super cute though! Reviews (from caterpillarbaby.com) were good. I also ordered 2 Thirsties Duos and the velcro is deffinitely "grippier" on the Bummis.

We have 3 Super Lites in our regular rotation. I like that the velcro is sturdy- we had an awful time with Flip velcro, but this has really held up. I've been impressed. I like the wide elastic. I like the colors. We've never had them leak. They're pretty trim (so, would work well for your fitted or snappi'ed prefold) I don't like the short rise (or maybe my little guy just has a tall rise? He outgrew the Thirsties size 1 well before the weight limit, and is outgrowing the medium Super Lites at 25lbs, and they're supposed to go to 30.) The wide velcro is strong and great, but also tends to scratch babies' bellies and legs.
All diapers have pros and cons, and I like the Super Lites for the fact that they're solid, durable covers at a good price. The feel like they'll last longer than the Econobums, which are at the same price point.

I exclusively use wool pull up covers now.
