Big fan of Rearz as a company, and my last order they sent me a trial of their Inspire diaper. There has been a bit of talk, but I thought I would revisit for sake of a mini review:
This diaper is BIG. I'm typically a small/maybe medium, but this is a very large medium. First impressions, the diaper has a very soft plastic shell with a thick plastic landing zone for the tapes. Big fan of this cause it can then be refastened. Inside material is very soft quilted, quite nice and comfortable to wear.
The diaper is very crinkly and has a lit of bulk, definitely not a discrete option. Now, Rearz states that the diaper can take up to 5L, and I have no doubt that if I were to lay it out and poor water in, it would drink up 5L (but not hold for a press test). Unfortunately, my biggest disappointment is that the fillings is almost pure SAP, there is no fluff or fiber. After 2 wettings, the center of the diaper was super saturated and I leaked as soon as I sat down, there is just nothing to wick the liquid away to the front and back. I ended up throwing the thing out after maybe 1L of liquid and most of the padding was bone dry still.
End of the day, not a terrible play diaper, but higher leg guards and better wicking of liquid throughout the absorbent core would greatly benefit this diaper.
