I really like this new AIO by Bummis. I have a very skinny boy and peeing out leg gussets is an issue in a lot of diapers. I have never (knock on wood) had any leakage issues in this diaper. That gets it a star right there. I think its very easy to use and dry. I drip dry my diapers. I pull the insert out when I wash and dry and compared to other AIO diapers this dries fast! I let them sit for 24 hours after I lay them out to dry and its always dry in that time period. To loosen the fabric if I think it feels too rough after drip drying I toss it in the dryer for 5 min to soften it up. My only 'negative' about this diaper (which makes this a 4 out of 5 not a full 5 star rating) is the inter layer that is underneath the primary fabric. You cannot see it in photos, but can feel it when you stuff the doubler inside. This bunches up when washed/dryed. I have to manually go in and try to straighten it out. Its not hard. Its way easy to do, just takes that extra 5 seconds. Its not attached I am assuming to help with dry time, but can cause a bulge if not flattened. Once washed I always grab this diaper right away. Its in may primary rotation. My husband loves it because its easy for him to use, and anything to make diapering easier on him is a win in my book! At the end of the day, yes, I do suggest this diaper.

Despite the hefty price tag and my aversion to synthetic materials, I was too intrigued not to try one of these new diapers. After using it on my daughter for a few weeks, I admit to liking it more than I thought I would. The waterproof PUL is very nice. It is lightweight and silky (not thick and a bit crunchy as I find with Smart Bottoms, among others), and the prints are cute (I ordered Forest Animals). The polyester that surrounds the absorbent cotton inside is thin and pilled immediately with washing, but it seems sturdy enough to hold up. The organic cotton has a neat dimpled appearance that isn’t as nice feeling as it is looking; it is a little bit rough when running your hand over it, so, not sure how it would feel pressed up against a bum. Beware - it took forever to prep (almost as many washings as the Smart Bottoms, which are notoriously laborious). The attached insert is interesting; it feels almost like wetsuit material, somewhat stiff and springy. Both sides of the insert are the same silky soft material, but to call it “stay dry” is a bit far-reaching, as running your finger lightly across it will leave your skin more than a little damp. I leave the insert out because it’s softer than the cotton, not because she feels drier in it and is willing to go longer in between changes. This diaper fits great, and I would assume it adjusts well to fit any size or shape of baby. I use it on the smallest rise setting and second row out from the middle snaps for the waist setting for my daughter who is a little over 12 lbs and 24 inches. It is not, however, a trim fit. It is a bit bulky, especially around the hips, and gives baby that sort of cinched-waist look. A slight annoyance when putting it on is that the elastic on the back of the waist makes it so that the diaper won’t lie flat but actually fold in on itself, and is therefore difficult to slip under baby’s bum one-handed. Absorbency is good, not great. If you plan to use for nap or nighttime, then you will need to add a pretty hefty insert or doubler. There are two thinnish layers of the cotton - one is sewn directly to the polyester edging material, and another flap is sewn at both ends inside the diaper. If you want this diaper to dry before your child potty trains, then you absolutely have to turn it inside-out after washing (which is an annoying extra step).
Overall, I like this diaper and would happily use more of them if given to me. But if I’m going to spend this kind of money for an AIO, I will be spending it on the Smart Bottoms, hands down.
