Gerber DSQ prefolds equivalent to what Chinese prefold???

I have been using the Gerber DSQ prefolds from Target and am looking to purchase more prefolds. I would like to try some chinese prefolds but I'm not sure what an equivalent would be. Can someone help me?
I measured one that I have and it measures about 13"x16" (of course this is washed/fluffed/shrunken measurement not new out of the package).
I think the layers would be considered 2x4x3 (I tried to count the layers)?

These are my favorite. You can see measurement in the info...

do you have the gauze only ones, the gauze ones with the stuffing, or the twill cotton (looks like jeans look but white) kind?? i think its the gauze ones with stufing that are that size, i have a few of all 3 kinds and without looking/measuring those are the smallest if im remembering right...


id get chinese or indian, i like unbleached ones best, theyre more absorbant and softer than the bleached ones, and the indian are even more so than chinese, imo also

I have the twill looking ones. I bought a pack of the other gauze type ones not knowing what they were until I got them home and opened them...and now I use them as bibs and rags. The twill looking ones I have are solid fabric, not the ones with the polyester batting in the middle. I knew to avoid those from when my brother was in diapers.

Oh, I recounted the layers and I think they are actually 4x6x5(one side has an extra layer) or something like that.

I have some of those, and I think that they are pretty much the same size as the regular prefolds.

I prefer the premium size ones though. They seem to be just a tad bit bigger than my Gerber pf so I like those better.
