Help choosing a more breathable, gentle cover (not wool or fleece)

We love coverless and wool for home, but I'm trying to find a cover for going out that is more breathable and gentle than PUL. I love the fit of Flips, but my DS always ends up with bad red marks (he has my very sensitive skin). I do use wool sometimes when out, but I have two issues... bulk and a boy with forceful pee (and all up front). We do part-time EC and change as soon as possible if he wets, but if we're in a car, etc. it can be longer.

I'd like something that I can use with flats. I've been looking at the Nikky covers and it looks like people like the rainbow edge a lot, but I was also considering the all cotton and the breathable poly. Does anyone have suggestions as to what would be best? I've read through threads here and the sites where they are sold and I'm still confused

I was also considering the Imse Vimse organic cotton, but it looks like those have PUL gussets and hidden PUL so they probably wouldn't work, right?

Thanks!

GreenLine covers aren't PUL, they are much more breathable and sooo trim. I also love that they are one size, so a good investment. Tons of cute prints, too! I LOVE mine more than any other covers I have!

Thanks. I think I'll try the rainbow...

Anyone have thoughts on the all cotton Nikky?

I really like Imse Vimse covers, they are nice and soft.

The cotton Nikky's ROCK. You should definitely try them. I use them and my Nikky breathable poly's whenever we have a rash or it's too hot.

the rainbow nikky is not breathable like the cotton or breathable poly. my son will definitely get too hot in the rainbows and sometimes in the polys and never in the cottons. he has eczema and very sensitive to heat, I probably way over analyze the heat factor Oh and even though I adore imse vimse covers and they are super soft and gentle, they are not breathable either and likely a hot choice in the summer. i have found the motherease airflows to be fairly cool if your baby is on the larger end of the size range so that the snaps are most or all of the way out on the legs. not as breathable as the cotton nikky but close
