If I LOVE BGOS 4.0s, what else will I like?

I'd love suggestions on OS pockets, and especially would like to hear about FBOS - I don't get the whole adjustable elastic thing but I keep hearing great things.

I want a SIMPLE STASH of 2-3 different diapers. I love my BGOS and I just bought a couple RaRs (but probably won't buy more, alas, because my son is long and the rise is short). I want something I can stuff the heck out of for nights and has a good fit around the legs and isn't ridiculously bulky. So, yes, I just want it all, ok?

Thanks for your thoughts!

You might love the Kawaii heavy duty. It has a similar fit to BG 4.0s!

I couldn't stand the FBOS adjustability thing...I tried getting a good fit many times on my kiddo (and she is easy to fit!) but ended up with puckering near the top elastic spot and it leaked. I loved the colors, hated messing with those elastic adjustments.

How about the softbums omni?

Hmmm. I also love the BG4.0s. Don't bother with the FB. The fit is not the same as the BGs. I really like my BG AIOs and prefolds with a sized thirsties cover. Pretty much a pocket with out the pocket, lol.

I actually really like by FBOS. They do fit smaller that the BGOS. I have had great luck with the adjustable elastic.

I really tried to love FB and just could never get the fit right. We also use a combo of BGs, RAR and Thirsties and love it.

I also think Blueberry's are very close to bg's. I really like them and wish I would have found them sooner!
Kawaii's are still too large on the smallest setting on my 18 lb one year old. I tried both snaps and velcro in the Kawaii; no luck with either version.
My favorite night option right now is the Thirsties Duo fitted. It is stuffable, and you can use whatever cover you like over it. I've tried a few other things but keep going back to it.

I love my BG 4.0!! They are my favorite pocket dipes and make up a good part of my stash (that and some BG 3.0), but my second favorite is a close tie between Sunbaby and the FB OS. The Sunbaby fit smaller than the BG 4.0 (closer to a 3.0), but they are quite trim I think! THey are also cheaper and have some wicked cute prints! I really like the FB OS too and haven't had a problem adjusting the legs. Plus when the elastic is dead it will be the easiest reapir job ever! I have one Blueberry, it's not bad but doesn't impress me enough to go buy more.
