If you are pissed off about Abena m4's going to cloth backed, I recommend trying the New Kolibri Comslip plus! Awesome nappy! Plastic backed with good crinkle sounds when walking around. Tapes are good, never had any trouble with any of them, plus they just keep on holding, I've done several wetting's and a mess and they are still going strong!
These can be purchased from a company called Save Express, a German firm, but I found the prices to be good and shipping costs very reasonable.
