Rumparooz Cover Compared to BumGenius and Rumparooz Pocket Diaper

I am just going to do a quick post comparing the cover with a BG 4.0 and a RaRz pocket diaper. It's hard to truly compare them though because the elastic is so stretchy on the cover. It makes it look a little smaller than what it really is.
The BG is the blue one on the left, the cover is in the middle, and the pocket is on the right.

All diapers completely snapped down. The pocket is the smallest diaper and the BG is the biggest.

All diapers on the second snap setting. The BG only has 2 snap settings.

The BG is completely unsnapped. The other two are on the 3rd snap setting.
All diapers unsnapped. You can see the cover is the biggest. I don't have any other covers (besides wool and WAHM fleece covers) to compare it to. Sorry!
Hope this gives you a good visual of the cover : ) You can buy them from plenty of retailers. Mami's and Papi's and SweetBottoms Baby Boutique are two of my favorite retailers (their buttons are off to the left) and you can buy them from either of these wonderful WAHMs! (Supplies are limited. This was a mini release until summer.) Happy shopping fellow addicts : )

Video Review of Rumparooz Covers

This is my first video review so don't be harsh : ) Sorry the sound kind of sucks and it's a little bit crooked.

This cover will fit from about 6-35+ pounds. It is a very generous cover. (I know I say that a LOT in the review, sorry!) You can get it in either snaps or hook and loop closure. The insides are made of biodegradable TPU waterproof material. Biodegradable TPU is solvent-free. Biodegradable TPU is a polyester fabric that has been laminated with a thermoplastic polyurethane using a heat bonding process. This process is low in toxicity and is better for the natural environment. Both the TPU laminate and the polyester fabric the laminate is applied to are biodegradable. When composted they will biodegrade in 4-5 years. It is more breathable and "earth friendly" than the usual PUL.
I have yet to test it with a poopy diaper but I'm sure it would hold everything in very well! It is so strechy! I thought it would leave red prints on my son if I snapped it down too small but it didn't (and he took a long nap in it). He is 1 year old and he is pretty skinny (about 20 pounds or so). He is on the second snap setting and I LOVE the fit on him. I put a fluffier diaper on him today and it still fit wonderfully! I am excited to keep using this diaper cover. He still has room to grow in it too which I love.
I would give this diaper 5 stars. So far there has been no problems and I am loving it!

*EDITED TO ADD* I have used this over night and with poo dypes and it still is working great. I still give this a 5 star review, months after I have bought it.

NEW Rumparooz Covers!

I was excited when I heard Rumparooz made covers! I have been getting more into fitteds and prefolds and I needed a good cover for when we go out and about. I am not a huge fan of their pocket diapers. They run REALLY small in my opinion and I've had a few issues with them. My 12 month old can wear the pocket diapers completely unsnapped and he is a very skinny guy.
This was on the last snap setting with a SBISH snapless underneath. I didn't like the fit AT ALL! But I had it on the wrong snap setting. I was worried about the elastic being too tight on him.

Definately was too big on him!

Can you see how much extra fabric there is?

FIXED! I fixed it to the second snap setting and it was a MUCH better fit! I was surprized at how generous it was!

The fit (once I fixed it) was great! Very trim! I am going to put a bulkier option under it and see how that works too.

He ended up napping in this and no red marks! YAY! The diaper was SOAKED (he is a crazy heavy wetter) but no leaks out of the legs or back or anything. I was happy!
It worked really great! I have only used it once but I liked it so far! I am going to post more pictures of this compred to a few name brand diapers later. (And more detailed pictures of the actual cover)
