I plan on using indian prefolds, and I'm looking for a reasonably priced one-size cover to go with them.  Just wondering what you all think about these two or if you had any other recommendations.

I really like my flip diaper covers. I use them with prefolds all the time. I think they wouldn't be good for fitteds because they are a trim diaper, but they are great for a trifolded prefold.

I love my flips. I use them now with the organic inserts (the original ones, not the newer ones) but when DD was smaller, i used them with newborn prefolds, just tri folded, and theu worked great. They were a little too big when she was first born, though. I used some small sized covers for the first couple of months with my prefolds.

Flip covers are great i think. Ive used mine over prefolds, flats, Mother-ease, Bumboo, and others. Snaps are the key.

Another cover i really have taken too is the Sweet Pea covers. They are cute and affordable.

I love both. I've used econobum longer and they really last. But so far I love the flip too. Econobum are definitely the cheapest covers out there that I have found. If you google search and find an irregular sale (and I can't tell at all the difference between my regular ones and irregular ones) you can find them as cheap as $4.95 per cover.
