For the longest time I preferred cloth back and actually was pretty hesitant to try plastic. As far as I am aware all diapers I have worn when I was a baby where cloth backed. I actually think if they made decent cloth backed adult baby diapers, I would prefer them over plastic. However, since there really are not any good ones on the market at least not that i'm aware of, I prefer plastic now, cause they are just overall better diapers.
But I do think cloth back feels nicer overall and feels more babyish / child like cause that is generally what exists today as baby diapers and pull ups.
