The cloth diapers I usually use are the cheap pockets, Bright Star Baby/Fishnoodles, BumGenius, and Softbums. The only covers I've used have been these and Bright Star Baby.
I adore these over the Bright Star Baby. Even though there is just one row of snaps, these snap around my baby really snugly (still without any red marks) and there is no "wing droop." They fit perfectly, and because of this, they're pretty trim. I love the extra row of gussets around the thighs as extra protection against leaking.
The PUL is totally exposed on the inside of the cover, but that's what makes it ACTUALLY reusable-- no matter what the mess is, you can technically wipe it off and reuse it right away. My husband thinks that this makes the the cover look cheap, but that's because he's comparing it to pocket diapers-- all covers alone are kind of thin and flimsy-looking. In reality, this one works great. I've heard of other people being bothered by the fact that the PUL touches the baby's skin, but it's never been an issue for us-- it doesn't seem to make my baby uncomfortable.
The BestBottoms inserts and the Softbums inserts are interchangeable-- both snap in to both diapers. I prefer the Softbums inserts, since the BestBottoms ones are stiffer and seem bulkier. The Softbums inserts seem cushier-- they're big and soft, and since they're one size (you just fold them to the correct size), you don't have to buy different sizes as your baby grows.
So, BestBottoms cover + Softbums insert is the perfect diaper.
