UPDATE with pics and review! New Diaper Safari cover!
 
Has anyone else seen these or tried them?

Nice looking onesize cover with what appears to be AWESOME inside flaps to hold your prefolds or inserts in place....cheap price...they also are offering a bamboo prefold that has the option of a stay dry side...pretty decent pricing...just wanted to see what others think....

I ordered an ebony cover to try... will post a review once I get to try it out.

I loved the fit of their onesize pockets, but we cannot do micro-suede here due to rash issues.

Ok!! Got my cover and so far I REALLY love it!! The fit is identical to the diaper safari pockets....has hip snaps to prevent wing droop...gentle leg elastic and back waist elastic...I love the deep pocket openings for the insert...the back one has elastic to really keep the insert in place! The pul seems to be nice quality...not flimsy at all. This cover feels stretchy like a flip...the tabs have a nice stretch to them! I would say the quality is the same or actually a bit nicer than a flip cover! Sturdy snaps and good color selection. I used a size 2 capri insert in mine with the cover set on the middle rise snaps and the waist snapped all the way shut on the waist and almost on the tightest snap for the legs. There is a cross-over snap for the waist. My overall opinion of this cover thus far is that it is VERY trim, and seems to hold the insert in place very well~I will update more after naptime is over. Anyways, here are some pics- not the best because he was not cooperating and was ready for nap. :giggle:

My son is 24 lbs and 34" tall.. he is 18 months old. I would consider him a long and lean baby that is a heavy wetter. This cover has a very generous fit and seems like it will fit for a long time

**Naptime update! He slept for 3 hours and it held it all in- no leaks or wicking...the capri insert was SOAKED..but not a single leak! The insert had not budged an inch inside either...and he is an active sleeper..moving and such all over the place.

Ooo, those look awesome! I love the fit of their pockets so I bet the covers are nice as well. The insert is my favorite thing! I bet those would be great at nice inside a fitted for my heavy wetter. I love that it's cotton/bamboo with a stay dry top.

Yeah!! I've been excited and anxiously waiting fr the FB announcement! I want to know if there will be buy 1 get 1 free like the pockets have been... anyone know because that's how I'll try :) I love how the snaps match the shell... Über cute!!

I'm wondering on the layering of the insert--is it just 1 layer bamboo/1layer of suedecloth?

If you don't mind white snaps and elastic, it looks almost like the same cover you can get here for $5!

I just saw the one in the picture in a thread during a search I did on covers. And then saw the cover in this thread. They look almost identical!

Wowsa! That looks totally amazing. I have an entire stash so I won't be buying these, but, if I didn't, I would seriously give these a try!

That's like one of the most sensible looking things I have seen - and then with the stay dry bamboo option....seriously???? So Smart!!!

And economical - looks like you could have 36 inserts and 9 covers for right at $250!!!! 36 inserts and 6 covers for around $225. A FULL TIME, ONE SIZE system for under $250. That's truly amazing. Not many things fall into that category.

That's cheaper than a 2 sized prefold/cover system. And probably any other system that I can think of (other than sewing your own flats from receiving blankets or something)

Somebody has to buy both pieces to try together and tell us all about it!!!

It's two layers of the bamboo/cotton, plus the microsuede top -- so when tri-folded, you get SIX layers of bamboo/cotton! :)
