Need to expand your stash of GroVia Shells? Looking for a super trim cover to go over fitteds or prefolds? Now you can buy this highly acclaimed GroVia Shell by itself. This product DOES NOT include Soaker Pad or Booster.
We have used Grovia hybrids with all 4 of our children and I will no longer buy another brand. We started with the AI2 shells and soakers with our oldest, then switched to prefolds with our youngest. I love the fit of the hybrid shells and the fact that they are one sized. I can use the same shells for my 3 year old and my infant twins. The quality is unmatched, and customer service of this brand is also superb. I recommend Grovia diapers, especially the hybrids, to anyone considering cloth!

I love the Grovia hybrid snap shell. I have tried other brands and Grovia's snaps are by far the strongest. My almost 1 1/2 year old has yet to have a major poo blowout in a hybrid. Somehow it magically stays inside the diaper....it must be the great elastic at the top.

I love the quality and versatility of this hybrid shell! It is so nice to be able to reuse the shell if it is not soiled and I love being able to customize the absorbency depending on my baby's needs! These make up the majority of my cloth diaper stash and I am in love!

This is an awesome, easy to use system. We use it in combo with Flip and fitteds/wool covers and while I like the fitteds the best, this is my favorite hybrid system. The shells are really well made--I like the mesh lining. And I prefer the snap in inserts to using prefolds in other systems--they're just easier to use, don't move around as much, and the double gusset prevents leaks. Using this system we've been leak-free and diapers changes are quick and relatively easy.

I do really like the quality of grovias shells and inserts. Although the inserts are rediculously expensive!! I have been using the shells with regular Prefolds and they do work really well! I don't like how you can't use any other snap in inserts with these though. The snaps are different than other brands so you have to buy Grovia inserts for them to snap in. I wish they had more options for cheaper inserts. The hook and loop shells wear out extremely fast when washing them in a machine. If you hand wash them you will get a much longer life. Overall, grovias all in two hybrid system is not something I would recommend to friends. There's many many other brands that have just as great quality and a lot better prices. And a lot more versatility and insert options besides just the 2 inserts that Grovia offers. Also, for heavy wetters the Grovia insert don't last us longer than 2 hours. So defintley NOT a diaper you would use for nights or naps or any extended period of time. They are good for daytimes, though I prefer others over them.

This is our go to diaper. We love that the shells can be used several times before they need to be washed. Since you only change the insert more diapers fit in the wetbag. Also take up less room in our diaper bag.

I really like this diaper. The no prep soaker pads are so soft. I feel really good putting my baby in this diaper. We had to wait until she was about 10 pounds for the diaper to fit properly, but ever since the diaper rarely leaks. I like that if its just a wet diaper I can swap out the liner and the cover is reusable. The organic cotton liners make the diaper slimmer but I feel like the fleece liner is more absorbent. The liners are easy to snap on, making for a quick change. The downfall is the inside of the cover is mesh (allowing it to double as a swim diaper), so most poopy diapers require a whole new diaper - making it function like an AIO.

I bought these with the organic inserts and they're by far my favorite hybrid diaper. The fit is trim, and the elastic fits great (my twin babies have gone from tiny to chunky and they still work). The quality is great and my favorite part about these diapers is the super adjustable buttons. Definitely worth the investment!

The Grovia system is awesome and these snap shells are part of the reason why. The snaps hold up way better than the hook/loop (though those have a snugger fit). We love our snaps since they look brand new even after months of wearing. You do have to be a bit more careful in fitting them, as they don't conform to the baby's body as well as the hook/loop. We have found that after you place the diaper with the insert under the baby's bottom, you need to gently pull up to make sure it covers the bum completely. (Make sure the insert is not sticking out.) Then pull up the front and make sure you get a good fit around the legs. If you can easily get your fingers in between the leg and the diaper you will have leaks. Once you get the technique down, the snaps are easy to use.

I love these diapers! I prefer snaps vs. hook and loop. There are so many ways to use this diaper - you can really customize to fit your baby's needs! High quality and amazing color and print choices!

Grovia hybrid shells work so well for us! We have a mix of hook and loop and snaps and they fit well, look great, have lasted well, and have incredible customer service backing them. We use all the different inserts for different occasions and love the flexibility. The shells also work well as swim diapers.

Very easy system, I love that there are so many ways to use this diaper so you can customize it for your individual babies needs. I personally like the snaps over hook and loop. I use these with either a no prep soaker or a stay dry and then use the small soaker from the ONE as a booster. No leaks!

I am due with my second baby in March, first in cloth. I've been buying grovia through this site in preparation, and I cannot wait to use them on my sweet girl! The quality is certainly there, along with adorable colors and prints!! I've also loved this site. I always get the diapers so quickly, and I love accumulating points with my purchases.

I absolutely love these shells. The colors are wonderful and stylish. But the best part is that they fit snug around my little girl without being too tight. The snaps keep the diaper in place, which is great for babies that love to move around. Other than the obvious, these shells are way better than disposable diapers because I've never had a blow-out, no leakage, and they don't come loose!

I love the flexibility and fit of this shell. I love that I can use the snap in soakers, the biosoakers for traveling, or even just a prefold. It fits my larger children extremely well and allows me to use this as they get older, therefore making it a longer lasting diaper! I would definitely recommend this for any child, at any age, or any size!

We bought a mix of snaps and hook & loop closures. I like that the snaps have two snaps on each side so I can adjust the leg opening AND the waist tightness, especially because we started when our baby was one week old, 7lb. Never been a problem to make it the "perfect fit" even with the snaps being set widths because of the elastic on the back of the diaper.
