I stuff the fuzzi bunz pockets with 1 x fuzzi bunz microfirbre cloth and a folded in half lengthways ptits dessous bamboo insert, this will easily last 4-5 hours when needed (nap time) and has in fact worked well overnight for Lucas when he was older!

Microfibre is good at catching liquid, but too much of it and it can be like a sponge. If you have numerous microfibre inserts it can squeeze out and cause leaks.
Hemp is slim, and very good at holding a lot of liquid. It is slow to absorb, so not good as the only insert.
Bamboo is a good fabric that will hold a lot and has antibacterial qualities. It is a natural fibre, unlike microfibre.
What I generally use is a microfibre on top and hemp underneath.
The hemp jersey boosters I use are from easy peasy https://sslrelay.com/s130978863.oneando ... shopscript are cheap and work well.
I have also used a ptits dessous bamboo insert folded in half with hemp in the middle, the blueberry microfibre and hemp combo inserts weenotions bamboo and hemp inserts.
I don't really have a favourite. It seems to be the older Kayleigh gets, the more hemp I buy to add to the insert combos.
