We love bumgenius pocket nappy here at FMP. We used the v3 on our daughter and found them easy to use, absorbant, easy to wash and quick to dry, the v3 were velcro only but we found it stayed sticky for the 2 and a half years that they were used and Daddy loved to use them. We did have to start boosting them when she was around 2 years old she was at the age when the nappy would be dry for over a hour and then she would do a massive wee, we found that boosting with hemp or bamboo gave better aborbancy then 2 microfibre.
It comes with 2 inserts one is a newborn insert that can then be used as a booster for overnight, naptimes and heavy wetters, the large insert folds to fit the size of nappy depending on the rise settings and poppers to stay in the folded position.
The nappy is easy to use, just put the insert in the pocket and then in goes on like a disposable nappy it even has strethy tabs, when used take out the insert, threw insert and outer part in a bucket or wetbag until wash day, then cold rinse and wash wi)th a extra rinse, line dry - if possible, in winter we dried ours on the cloths horse ( keep outers away from direct heat).Features

BumGenius V4 fit most babies from 7 to 35+ pounds. No more sorting by size or having to carry multiple diapers when going out. Three snap-downs on the front of the nappy allow you to easily adjust the size of the diaper as your baby grows. For newborns, fold down the insert stopper for an extra-small rise.
All bumGenius One-Size Cloth Diapers include a small, lightweight insert for newborns and a larger one-size insert for your growing baby. The one size insert features a popper to adjust the insert to small and medium or unpoppered for large.
When your baby outgrows the newborn insert, it works as an overnight booster or as extra absorbency for heavy wetters.
Very good fit
This is a really nice pocket diaper. A bit pricier than some, but I feel definitely worth it when comparing to other brands.
The outer shell feels really sturdy, yet it is not thick and bulky. It snaps down easily to one of the smallest fitting pocket diapers in my collection. The inner fleece is soft to the touch. The snaps are easy to close. The elastics are soft yet springy, and rather easy to replace if need be. In short, a well constructed pocket diaper with nothing much to remark upon.
There's only two things I wish they had done differently. Firstly, I wish the inserts were made of a natural material, preferably foldable so they were easy to wash clean and line dry. Of course, being a pocket diaper, this is easily remedied. The second thing is that the microfleece is sewn edge to edge with the shell, and in places actually poke over the edge. This is where this diaper is most likely to wick if it becomes really wet. Using really absorbent inserts help with this issue, though, since the fleece does not want to absorb overly much liquid.
Overall, a lovely diaper.

Good sturdy pocket diaper
I'm not a huge fan of pocket diapers in the first place -- can't be bothered with stuffing all the time! -- but as far as pockets go, this is one of my favourites. Nice wide pocket makes it easy to stuff, stretchy tabs ensure a good waist fit. Would like more thigh size customization, but it works well if you're careful not to overstuff.

Best nappy ever!
As the title suggests, this is the best nappy we've ever used. It's definitely our workhorse nappy. Because it's a pocket it can be totally customised in terms of what it is stuffed with, and the sudecloth inner keeps baby's bottom lovely and dry. This nappy makes up the bulk of our stash. We've been using them solidly for nearly two and a half years and they look virtually unused. Excellent quality and total reliability.
