What is more comfy?

Here's a funny little experiment I did this afternoon I was curious what my older ds (4 and out of diapers) would say about how comfy different diapers are. He weighs 26 lbs and can wear mediums and some larges to give you an idea on his size. Here is what I tried on him listed in the order of which he thought was more comfy.
*Velcro flip cover with trifolded thirsties duo prefold: He liked this the best, said it was not too squeezy between the legs (his word, you'll understand by the description of squeezy below) nice and squishy and he liked how it fit over his hips.
*BG 4.0 Pocket :He liked this second,said it was a little tighter fitting than the flip.
*Thirsties Duo Diaper: He liked this very much and said after it was on a minute it got more comfy but he didn't like something about it between the legs.
*Pinned prefold (brown edge gmd) with a thirsties duo velcro cover over it. He said it felt big over his hips and too squeezy between the legs (I'm thinking this means bulky)
*Trifolded Thirsties duo prefold in a Thirsties duo velcro cover: Better than the pinned diaper but still didn't care how the Thirsties cover fit between the legs.
*BG sized AIO, said it hurt on the front tummy and not comfy around the back.

Now this was just one childs idea of fit/comfort but some of it sort of surprised me. Mainly the fact that the trifolded prefold in the cover was the most comfy! Didn't I just have a post that said I hate trifolding Where is that thing again to remind me.
I'm curious if anyone elses little ones who are old enough to communicate have said about what is comfy and what isn't?

Re: What is more comfy?

cool! My DS who is still in diapers and doesnt really talk yet always grabs down there as soon as I put on the center part of the snappi. Hes kind of EC'd/ PL'ing so pins arent an option. Makes me wonder about the first 6-8 months when all I used was snappi'd prefolds!!

Interesting!
I was using Thirsties hemp prefolds and flip covers on DS before he potty trained.
I would love to trifold on DD but I'm not a fan of any covers for trifolding for her yet. I think once she fills out a little we will be able to.
For now though she seems to like BG organics...if you think about it they are kind of similar to a trifold in their placement of the bulk.

Let me know what he says! Ds isn't talking yet, otherwise I would ask him.

DS actually wore all bg organics before I switched to the Thirsties prefolds, but he started hold his pee longer and the bgo's weren't cutting it anymore.
