Should I try the new elementals?

I was going to run to cotton babies today anyways, and they just stocked the new elementals last night. Should I pick one up? I'm tempted, but the price tag kinda freaks me out.

Drying time is a huge pet peeve of mine, so I hated the old elemental. I've also got a light wetter, so the extra bulk on the BGE was just unneeded. I'm curious how well the flaps stay in place without needing to be tucked or folding weird (I hate it when inserts don't lay flat).

They have an awesome 30 day guarantee right? I can just bring it back and get my money back if I really don't like it?? Maybe I should get it and just try it out. Would you get one to try if you were really undecided?

I live near the store too, so I'd probably try it and keep the receipt, so I can return it in 30 days if it isn't spectacular.

I look forward to hearing some reviews on the new elemental.
I have a heavy wetter so I'm not so sure about it.

I would definitely try it! You will be one of the first, how cool! I don't know how the dry time could be anything but less with this design!

You can only return if it is unwashed, unused. Otherwise if you return it used I think they will only offer you their "Growing up in Cloth" buy back price which is $7.50 for an Elemental according to their website.

Actually you can use the diapers and return them with in the 30 days for a full refund. They just have to be a diaper that they manufacture so Bumgenius, Flip or Econobun qualify for this 30 day guarantee.

Re: Should I try the new elementals?

Yay. I got one. I will post pics tonight. Theres a 30 day money back guarantee so I can bring it back if I dont like it. DD tends to get rashy easily on natural fibers. We havent tried any ina while so if it does cause problems I will bring it back. We havent found an aio we love, so im hoping this might be it. Im sick of stuffing pockets!

We dont worry about exposed pul but it looks like any way you do it with this it with guy it will be exposed. And im not a fan of inserts and things that fold... looks like this has to fold unless you are on the highest rise. It also looks like everything is tricky to access... so replacing soakers or elastic would be a pain.

She said when the old elementals are gone they are gone, so I guess that means they are discontinued. It also sounds like they didnt know about this new dipe until just a few days ago.
