After using disposables for a good time I'm getting curious about cloth diapers. I'm considering trying a Dependeco AIO, but I also see these and am wondering if anyone has any experience with this Etsy seller and can give me any thoughts on their diapers?

They look very comfy, but anyone know how well they hold up to use? Or do you think I should stick with Dependeco? I'd like to try an AIO, but I have a few questions.
1. How do AIOs feel around the waist compared to disposables. In my experience most disposables tend to be a bit too snug, since I am most comfortable with a bit of space to breathe down there. Are cloth diapers similar in this respect or do they tend to feel a bit less tight around the groin?
2. What is the capacity like? I can get three good wettings out of a Molicare. How does a cloth AIO compare? Also, are cloth diapers better for absorbing wettings while laying down? I'm a side sleeper so how well can I trust one? And can I count on the wetness staying inside the diaper once it's absorbed or will it start pooling in the plastic pants after a while?
3. How long can I stay in a cloth diaper? I assume that since the urine is being absorbed directly into the cloth that it feels very damp against the skin, so is this uncomfortable and worse for the skin than disposables? Is the smell of a wet cloth diaper worse than disposables and does the inside have a tendency to look stained over time?
4. Finally, what is the cleanup like when messing a cloth diaper? I can always just avoid this part if it's too much work, but I'm wondering if it washes out well (assuming I rinse it out good first) or if the smell and stain lingers.
