Question MF pockets vs AIO Thirsties decision

Mamas ... help me decide .... I need some new PUL diapers.

I was holding out for the Thirsties new AIO (which is said to be just like the fab fitted - stay dry topper with MF under and a tunnel for additional inserts) BUT .... I am worried about MF stinks!

I am fine with stripping the diaper to get rid of the stinks but now I am wondering if the Thirsties Duo Diaper (a pocket with MF and hemp inserts) would be better b/c I can separate the MF and strip it on it's own.

What do you think? (please don't suggest other diapers - I have tried a TON and I love Thirsties!)

I use Country Save in a front loader and have somewhat hard water (just FYI - but my wash routine works pretty good for now)

hmm well I do love my duo dipe, but it's hard to know since I haven't tried the other one yet. I'm guessing I will love it like I love my bg 3.0 aio...I'd wait if I were you until they come out and people start reviewing them, or buy one to try when they come out...can you wait a few weeks?

We are limping along with laundry every other day & fitteds with covers (DH & auntie don't do those) but I guess a few more weeks won't hurt.

I have both the duo diaper and the AIO. I like both. The AIO fits a little trimmer. I have the large size and it is really big so it works great with a PF doubler for night time.

I have lots of pockets and AIO with MF and have never had stink or needed to strip. I wash with about a 1/8 to 1/4 cup bleach in every load. Does the trick and hasn't hurt any of my diapers. I have been doing this for over a year.

I have another AIO that has microfiber and while I did get the stinkies (most of my pockets are microfiber), I just turned the diaper inside out (it was one with a pocket and a sewn in soaker so sort of similar to Thirsties new AIO) whenever I would do a microfiber bleaching without any issues.

totally forgot that I turn them inside out to wash and dry. That really helps

I haven't used bleach. It doesn't ruin the PUL?
