all bamboo fleece vs. microfiber/hemp combo

Do you think bamboo fleece would work just as well as a microfiber/hemp combo system? Bamboo absorbs faster than hemp but not as fast as microfiber. Think an all bamboo fleece soaker would absorb fast enough for a heavy wetter or flooder? Or would you prefer bamboo french terry instead of bamboo fleece because it might absorb faster and be almost as absorbent? It may stay softer over time too.

Do you mean you think bamboo fleece absorbs better than microfiber?

Re: all bamboo fleece vs. microfiber/hemp combo

I prefer my heavyweight bamboo fleece inserts to my hemp/MF combo ones. Mostly it's b/c I like to only have to stuff 1 thing in and most of my hemp/MF inserts are 2 different pieces (hemp insert with MF doubler). But if I were to pick 1 type I'd change them all to bamboo fleece.

Re: all bamboo fleece vs. microfiber/hemp combo

Bamboo fleece for SURE!! I adore the BF SBISH inserts. I just bought extras to use as doublers in my ETPFs. They're the best of both worlds IMO since they absorb so well but stay soft.

Hemp is OK, buy hemp fleece can get stiff over time if it doesn't have cotton to balance it out.
I try to stay away from microfiber.
Bamboo fleece is my choice, it is durable and thirsty.
