Hemp doublers apart from Joey Bunz?

Which do you like? (We've used Joey Bunz and liked them I'm just wondering what else is out there.) I haven't bought doublers in a couple of years. Thanks!

I've only ever used thirsties. I have both small and large. They are crazy absorbent. Take forever to dry, of course. I like 'em.

I have both GMD small hemp doublers and Hemp Babies smalls. I like both, and the Hemp Babies are super thin even if you fold them in half!

Another vote for Thirsties. They're way absorbent and the cheapest option that I've found.

I use Hemp Babies Bigger and Little Weeds. Techincally flats, not inserts, but the Little Weeds are more like the size of a large washcloth, so not something you would actually use as flats. Both are quite thick and stiff like hemp can be, but can stand up to some serious soaking. For stuffing pockets, my favorites are Babykicks Hemparoo pfs. Thinner that mf, but hold more, and much more floppy than the Hemp Babies.

Thirsties! I found them to be way more absorbent than our Joeybunz, way cheaper, and simpler in terms of sizing (small and large only for Thirsties vs. multiple sizes for Joeybunz).

geffenbaby I think they are cheaper and more absorbent. Super absorbers are 8oz for like $4. I haven't tested the super plus enough but the are more for similar price. they are a bit thicker than joey bunz.

We haven't tried the Thirsties, but we love Geffen Baby. Even their Quick Absorbers are really absorbent, but still trim.
