I use snappied or pinned prefolds. DS is outgrowing his small covers, and I need to buy more in the next size. I was looking at Flip covers. They are on sale, buy 2 get one free, so 27.90 for 3 covers. Econobum covers are 8.95 each. I have one Econobum cover. It works just fine and covers the prefold well. It feels a bit flimsy, but has good reviews. I am curious about the Flips. I like the colors and that they are one size. They are a good price if I buy 3, but I don't want to buy 3 and have them not work over my prefolds. I don't want to buy a whole new diapering system. I already have premium prefolds for when DS outgrows the infant size he is in now.
Have you used Flips over prefolds? How do they work for you? If you have tried Econobum too, do you like one better?

I own a cloth diaper shop, and answered this exact question last week :)
With the sale, the Flip is a better choice, for basically the same price. Confession: half of our personal covers are Econobums (we got them before we owned the business, when they were Buy 1 Get 1 once-upon-a-time), and they totally work, but the Flips are definitely sturdier, have better colors, and seen less prone to "wing droop". I've had trouble with the fabric around the snaps of the Econobums starting to stretch out- no holes yet, but I can see the wear. The Flips seem to be made with better materials.
