I've mostly ended up with minkee outer/OBV inner (though I do have a couple with cotton outers and/or cotton velour inners), and I think they're fabulous. The fit is great, and Lili doesn't get any nasty red marks on her tummy from exposed snaps, like she does with Goodmamas. I haven't really thought about whether the OBV lasts longer than the CV but I'd say these are one of our most absorbent nappies, since I started using all 3 soakers. I guess Lili's not a super-soaker, I can't imagine her outweeing one in 2 hours or less
, they regularly last us 4 or 5!
