Best brand for a hemp insert?

i use pockets and am looking for a thin hemp insert that would last overnight. So it should be thin but thick enough to go say 10 hrs plus still fit into BG pocket. I'm in Canada so have tried AMP prefold hemp and it's almost 1/2 inch thick. I also got a fuzzibun hemp and that one looks much thinner! So tomorrow I'm going to run a test by pouring water from a cup onto both and see which one wins on absorbancy and by how much.
I saw thirsties hemp 2 for 8 on amazon with rave reviews. Should I just get those or are there better options? What's everyone using? Thanks!

I have a HEAVY wetter who sleeps 14 hours every night, and we use Hemp Babies Bigger Weeds and a Little Weeds. Depending on your needs, either might work. They're more absorbent than any other hemp inserts I've tried.

I vote for the thirsties! They are a jersey material so they don't get stiff like hemp fleece tends to do. They are also quick drying. They hold a ton.

I like Joeybunz, but was hoping someone had a super cheap, super absorbent, super thin option... LOL
