I love these stay dry inserts because they can fit in many different types of covers. I like how trim they are. This insert is very absorbent. This is my favorite diaper with toddlers and its easy to spray off poop since its just a stay dry pad inside. I do like prefolds and covers, but sometimes I just want to throw in an insert and this is it!!

1st time cloth diaper user. After a lot of research these received great reviews so decided to go for it. Easy to use and easy to clean. Have had some staining but haven't tried "sunning" yet. Have had some leaks but if change frequently no problems. Will continue to use.

I know that some folks don't care for microfiber, but we love them. We alternate between natural fibers and microfiber. Microfiber is super absorbent, and i love that these can be snapped to adjust for the correct size.

I love these inserts. I love the hybrid use. You don't have to change the whole diaper you can change only the Insert and they last a pretty long time. Washing them is super simple and drying the same. My favorite. Makes cloth diapering so much fun.

Flip inserts are very trim - something I love! They work great in the flip cover, naturally. The lines to indicate where to fold down just top off the quality of the product.
They are very absorbent. They wash up nicely, they do not seem to hold in smells like microfiber inserts traditionally do. They dry fast (I go ahead and throw these in the dryer)

These inserts are my least favorite to use inside my Flips (which is funny because all the Flips I bought originally back in 2009 came with these inserts!). The stay-dry material can be irritating to my daughter's sensitive skin, and the microfiber seems to wear out a lot faster than cotton (it still looks ok, no holes, but it is barely absorbent any more after a year of use). They get compression leaks once the microfiber is wet, so I have to change them very quickly, and they're harder to tell if she's wet (compared to the cotton ones) so it isn't easy to get every wet diaper off quickly!

I love this insert. It does what it says, feels dry to touch even when wet. It can hold a surprising amount of fluid before becoming completely saturated. The size indicators made it so easier to pair with the cover. The drying time is remarkably fast, especially compared with the Grovia stay dry insert. I would recommend this product.

The majority of my stash is made up of Flip stay dry inserts. They are just so convenient! They are the thinnest insert I've found and don't force me to go up a size in clothes for my son. They wash well and I've never had a stain the wouldn't come out with a little sunning. They are seriously a one handed operation. No fancy folds, just slide under the front and back tabs and snap on. And the width makes them super easy to get on a wiggly baby. I'm constantly amazed by the weight of the insert when I change my son after a nap, but the top stays nice and dry. Bonus-you only need one size insert for the life of your diapers!

I prefer these to the Bumgenius kind with the snaps. Seems easier just to fold them where you need them to go, no need for preset snaps. That way I can adjust them to fit all my different hand me down diapers. They are also more absorbent than the BG ones. They are bulky on the smallest size. Also, you have to make sure to put the correct side up, which can be a little confusing for my husband or me in the middle of the night.

We love the Flip system. I had gotten a few if these to try out and it was worth it! It's easy to use and keep my son dry. It's a lot trimmer than I expected and don't take up much space in the diaper bag.

Used these pretty much exclusively with my daughter... Purchased some of these and some of the organic daytime inserts this time around with my son... I have no complaints about the organic, the work great especially at nighttime, but the stay drys are still my insert of choice. They work well, easy to use and have he added perk of no staining at all when properly rinsed prior to dry pailed.

These inserts are great for day time use if you change often or do not have a heavy wetter. These were fine for us when my daughter was younger but now that she is 6 mo she wets through them onto the cover if she is in them for more than an hour or so. However for the price they are well made and do their job. I am definitely glad I have them in my stash.

These are so easy to use! They are less bulky than a pad folded prefold and the stay dry layer helps keep my son dry so he stays asleep overnight. They are a tad too big for my 1 month old, but they are usable. Absorbency is enough to last a few hours, although for overnight they need an added booster.

People were always raving about Flips - so when I found a great deal on disposable inserts and stay dry inserts I jumped at the chance. I have a rather extensive review on the disposable insets (go check it out.)
This review is for the stay dry insert only:
Pros: Price, Stay dry, lightweight, fast drying time, no leaks.
Cons: Diapering. Putting the pad into the flip "sleeve" It always seems to hop out an- the baby moves one way and the diaper or pad go another direction. (My husband refuses to use these - and I thought he'd prefer them.) The pad shifts - almost always. 75% of the time if we have a poo , the pad shifts and gets on the cover. It doesn't seem to matter if it is EBF poo or toddler poo - the cover still gets dirty. For this reason I wouldn't want the flips to be my primary stash for any baby that was EBF. Toddlers that only tend to poo once a day these would work good for. I wash every 1 -1.5 day and these tend to stain more frequently then my other diapers. I can't seem to figure it out because they are made the same as the freetimes (currently my favorite go to diaper) A little sun will take the stains right out.
So for now these are my travel diapers. They stay in the wetbag in my car - and I personally prefer the Freetimes or the 4.0s. But these are still a good option if money is tight as you would only need a few covers and 12ish inserts.
