To me, Thirsties give me the most "bang for my buck." They are very well-made--sturdy, cute, and they prevent leakage more than any other cloth diaper cover I've personally used. We use prefolds with our Thirsties diapers and haven't had any issues. I love that I only have to purchase 2 sets of the Duos, covering all of our diaper cover needs through potty-training. No complaints!

I have been using Thirsties for a couple years now. Wish I had tried the snaps before buying all mine with aplix, the aplix wore out immediately & it wasn't Thirsties problem. I was loaned a duo with snaps & haven't looked back. All but one of mine are currently duo snaps. I am having no issues with them, unless I don't get the diaper tucked in, usually when I am in a huge hurry, but that's my fault. All in all I like the duo with snaps, but wouldn't recommend the aplix.

Too Hyped Up
I purchased one of these covers because the reviews were phenomenal, but I didn't like the white edges so I wanted to be sure it was the best cover before I got a bunch of ugly covers. Well, it works really well, that's for sure. However, the size 1 only has 2 rise snaps and it creates a bulge at the crotch and the wing tabs stick up around the snaps. It's also more expensive than the brand that I prefer.

Good cover, but beware with prolonged use!
We are hardcore cloth diaper users, with several kids in diapers at the same time - any given time. So our diapers and covers get a lot of action. These covers are awesome; they are soft, trim, and very good. However, when compared to other covers we have, given the same amount of usage, these have developed holes around the snaps, the lining has become cracked and thinned on the inside, and they leak. It's thinner and trimmer, but that means it wears out faster.

I used Thirsties Duo for my first baby and by the time I switched to size two, the aplix was almost shot. I was hoping to get through all our kids with them. However, we did love them while they lasted. Reasonable price, good fit, and no leaks! I'm going to try Blueberry's coveralls with my next baby, and based on initial inspection, the aplix is much stronger. Also, the aplix problem could maybe be remedied by choosing snaps, which I did on this order.
