Well, most of us know about these diapers but I finally made a video about them. I do get what the blue tape is there for I just never found it that helpful. Even when I take them off I don't notice decent stickiness....Although it sometimes allows me to help wrap a used diaper together, even then I have noticed a lack of stickiness. Maybe I just had a bad batch... /shrug
Anyways, quality vs cost, I highly recommend this diaper!
