Wondering if anyone has experience / review of these. Available in UK and thinking of trying. It’s a PUL Velcro fastening shell wrap with an absorbant layer and pocket to take booster.

Further to above I have tried one as you will see in one of my posts, but think I went for a size too small. I’ve used it as a cover over disposables but thinking of trying with boosters for night. The one I have feels as if it’s too snug fitting and may need to try size above. My question is therefore to get any feedback if anyone had used these on prolonged basis and what do you think of fit / absorbancy etc. I like wearing reusable nappies the most but it’s expensive initially and don’t want expensive mistakes.

Also if anyone has any other suggestions for UK based washable nappies other that Terry squares I would love to hear from you. By the way I am a heavy wetter at night !
 
I bought 2 of these last year but haven't had much chance to test them out, from the few times I've tried them I've liked them, I'm at the small end of size 2,
I read the reviews saying about the small sizing so ordered the size 2 when going by my measurements and the size chart I should be size 1.
Definitely a good move, not too big, and enough room for 2 of the boosters.
I think my primary complaint would be the boosters, there long and narrow, and don't get any wider at the back.
There material is a bit odd, very soft fleece on both sides of the booster, this adds a lot of bulk without doing anything for absorbency, I'd have preferred more layers of microfiber toweling or bamboo.

Thanks for feedback. I must admit the one I have is tighter than I thought even though my waist measurement suggested it should be ok. It means the wings don’t come far enough towards the middle and therefore Velcro on the wind doesn’t fully engage on the waistband. Result means scratchy Velcro irritating my hips. I feeel that getting next size up will mean I get better fit. As for inserts I have bamboo cotton shaped inserts and oversize Terry nappy squares to try as inserts

Ahh no way, I was just looking at these yesterday debating whether to purchase. I was thinking it could be a good system for daytime as changing could be done in a flash. Pull out the wet insert, put in a new one, refasten and you're done.

As for recommendations, Im absolutely sold on snuggleblanks, based up in Lancashire. I brought one as a first real go at cloth, I'm so pleased with it I ordered another three.
I did post some pics up a while ago, I'll see if I can find them

Unfortunately they don't work quite like that anymore, the inserts go between the inner and outer layers of the nappy, a bit like in a pocket nappy, but there's also some built in absorbency to the inner part of the nappy.
I'm not sure what that makes them in cloth nappy terms a hybrid between AIO, AI2 and Pocket.
Going by old literature for them the outer nappy wrap was all pul with no absorbent part and they came with a booster that could be quickly swapped out.
I'll get some photos of mine next time I've got them out.
