I have several different brands of prefolds and the bummis organics are my favourite. They are very absorbent and last a good couple of hours even with my super heavy wetter. They wash very nicely too. I line dry most of the time and they don't go crunchy, unlike some of my other prefolds (particularly the bambino mio). I mostly use my prefolds pad folded inside a close fitting cover or to stuff pocket nappies. We’re relatively new to cloth, but my SIL used prefolds from birth. Pad folded isn’t good for BF poo containment but she discovered that if you fold them around the baby, securing with a nappi nippa before putting the cover on, there are rarely leaks.
