I have both the regular and DG ones. The DG's are heavier duty, IMO. I do like the way the fit and that they contain almost anything. They can be bulky on smaller babies, though. I have had my regular ones for over a year, in constant use and they have held up great. I even dry in the dryer and no PUL problems.

I've got 2 kids in diapers right now and my stash is all alva's. I'm not spoiled with the dg ones, though, just the regular. Works great for us! We almost never have leaks, and they were so cheap that I don't worry about stains or anything. The only problem we have ever had with them is I had some fabric pull out from under a snap that I need to fix. I think it's a great product for the price!

I am considering going to an Alva stash too! I ordered 10 alva dgs in the last couple days... I have read great things about them so I'm hoping they live up to my expectations

I'm so tempted by all the cute prints of the other Alvas but I really like a self agitating pocket...
