has anyone use this fabric for AIO's or covers?<br><a href="http://sewbaby.com/big/diapers_/diapers_4.html" target="_blank">http://sewbaby.com/big/diapers_/diapers_4.html</a><br>
it says it's breathable so I'm wondering is it better than PUL? easy to sew with?

I dunno. I haven't tried it. I kind of look at it like this.. if it was really great.. we'd hear more about it.<br><br>
I've also never really had good luck with anything "breathable" because of the sweating (cept wool... but even that was hit and miss for us).<br><br>
I'm sure someone here has used it and can tell you more about it. I've just never bothered to try it because I've never really heard much about it. We're not shy around here.. when we find something we like, we usually tell everyone who will listen <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

I **think** ultrex is a coated nylon. I haven't used it for AIO's or covers but IMO it doesn't seem like it would hold up as well as PUL.

I used coated nylon like Ultrex/Goretex etc for most of dd's AIOs and covers for well over a year before using PUL. I found it held up fine, for waterproofness. I line dry most of my AIOs and covers. It is not stretchy so I prefer PUL for my active toddler. I think it is easier to sew because it isn't stretchy. I have a local source with really low prices so it works well for me. It is more likely to feel clammy on the outside (from breathability) but never wicked on me like PUL does. YMMV...
