Opinion of Minky vs. PUL shells?

I'm ordering some Alvas, and I've never had any minky pocket diapers, but some of the prints are super cute. What do people think of minky? Do you like it, or prefer PUL?

I think that the minky is laminated with PUL.

Minky is also PUL, it isnt waterproof with out that laminated layer. I really like minky because its soft and cute but I have had wicking issues in the past with it.

I had wicking issues with a few minky pockets. I use a fleece liner behind the inserts when I stuff them and no more wicking. I love my minky diapers!

Personally I don't like minky for the outside of diapers, maybe it's just me! I don't mind them if my daughter isn't wearing any pants, but to me it's harder to put clothes on over them. Although I do have one cow print minky GoGreen diaper that I love
