I like that I can custom the assorbancy especially for long outtings or if needed at night but can be seperated to ensure better washing. I can also use a more breathable cover this way or even not use one.

Really? My FBs air dry in about 2 hours or dryer dry in about 15 minutes, but my happy hempy and swaddlebee dipes dryer dry in 90 minutes or so. The microfiber inserts and hemp doublers dry in a regular cycle, about 50 minutes.
I like them at night on my toddler. I can stuff them full and use wool over them. I just don't trust waterproof pockets for nighttime because they can leak too easily (ds holds it in until morning and floods). And they dry very quickly.
I don't use them at night on my baby because he sleeps on his side, and there isn't enough fabric on the sides to absorb the pee quickly enough.
I use the windpro/windbloc fleece pocket fitteds and i love them because they are breathable like a fitted yet they have never leaked for us!! so i get the best of both breathablility and the stay dry inner and outer!!
Can anyone recommend a good pocket fitted? I have a Swaddlebees OV pocket fitted and it's so soft and nice but unfortunately T&T dipes don't work well on my son at all....I need something surged so I have that extra leg frill.....but I don't know of any other pocket fitteds other than the SB's. And do you stuff them with the same type of inserts you would use with a regular pocket dipe? I'm not a huge fan of pocket dipes because I like using wool for a more breathable option.
-you can stuff them carelessly and they still work
-you can customise absorbency
-they are the ultimate in low bulk flexibility: I normally use them as is (and so they don't need to be stuffed after washing), but if I'm going out or it's first thing in the morning I can quickly and messily slip a microfibre towel or bamboo booster in.
- quick drying!
- trim! If you don't NEED it to last 5 hours, why have five hours worth of absorbency?
- easy to wash poo off. No separate booster to be rinsed.
I like that fitteds can be 100% cotton and you can easily use them coverless, and I like that pockets are easy to wash and quick to dry, especially with flats as inserts. Pocket fitteds are the best of both worlds!
