PSA: WARNING about Econobum 2nds

OK, I have Econobum 2nds from 2 years ago that I love. Not pretty anymore, but still chugging along. So trim.

Anyhoo, I had heard the white trim Econobum covers were not as good as the color trim, but never paid much attention to that. Well, I SHOULD HAVE.

I am so disappointed in these, and I bought SIX. The wing snaps just have this little fleece rectangle for reinforcement, the front snaps are very junkily reinforced with a wonky nylon rectangle, and the rise snaps are not reinforced at all.

For reference, my old 2nds with color trim have nice full PUL reinforced wings, and the front and rise snaps are well-reinforced with a layer of nylon.

It was only thirty bucks, but I am darn upset since they are final sale. Just thought I'd share for those who might be interested in this info b4 buying.

Re: PSA: WARNING about Econobum 2nds

What a disappointment.Their seconds are usually really nice. I was feeling majorly bummed that I didn't grab a bunch of those to help fill in my stash for the little girl I keep since I only have 3 covers for her, but DH didn't get paid til Friday and I missed out. I hate to be a spammer but if you're wanting to get rid of them cheaply, pm me.

Re: PSA: WARNING about Econobum 2nds

I got an econobum with white trim like that, I called CB and said I was disappointed and was hoping to have gotten one that had reinforced snaps like the colored trim, and they switched it out for a newer one for me. Did you try calling them?

I did email and am waiting to hear back. I'm just shocked they wouldn't mention these things, as they are way outside the range of usual 2nds issues I've gotten from them.

Sounds like this batch of seconds had a lot of big issues.
Hopefully they replace them or refund you.

I got white seconds like that in the past. My colored seconds are from 2 years ago and still going also!

those sound like the original econobum covers that first came out... before they started reinforcing the rise snaps. mine have held up fine over the years and i still have some in use.
