Pros:
This is a super little nappy. It fits our slim/long boy very well indeed; I think in part because it is less bulky. Although I do in general prefer poppered nappies, I would definitely make an exception for this one.
The nappy has a pouch at the rear, into which you fit the included bamboo booster, although I'm sure you could put others in with it but even with our heavy wetting baby we haven't needed to. Alternatively the booster can be laid into the nappy directly. Extra boosters are available.
The legs frills make a good fit on the legs and add to containment. The waist adjusts well.
This is a very slim nappy, probably the slimmest we have, but it performs very well. We have had no leaks and I can leave it on for 2-3 hours without worrying about it. The nappy works well with a variety of wraps (we bought these preloved without wraps so have had to use various other brands/styles).
In comparison to other bamboo nappies, this one dries rather quickly.
I am considering buying more for the next baby, as I think they'd do well from birth.

Cons:
They aren't terribly fancy to look at but am sure they could be dyed, if you felt inclined. The ends of the tabs have started to curl slightly with age (not sure how well used/old they are). I think this in in part because of the way that the tabs fold back on themselves for washing- they could do with being a bit bigger, in my opinion, although they never catch.

Pros:
This is a great nappy, very reliable. It is very slim fitting so can be worn under normal clothes which is different to many fitteds I have tried. The nappy is made of two layers of bamboo which form a pocket, this means it can be stuffed with additional absorbency as required. I use one of these nappies with the bamboo booster provided and a little lamb booster and it lasts 14 hours as a night nappy - have never had a leak yet :-)
During the day I am happy to leave this on DD for 4 hours - the longest of any of my nappies. The size 2 can be folded down at the front to use on smaller babies, I have been using them on my DD from about 6 weeks old, she is now 21 weeks and they still fit well.
They are a great price - RRP is £8.50 but I managed to get mine brand new direct from the manufacturer on ebay for £5 each. They work well with Nature Babies wraps but also with other brands I have tried.

Cons:
The laundry tabs aren't very effective, so these always come out of the machine attached to my mesh bags - it's a shame that they don't make a popper version.
Also, now that I have used a WNNN with a fleece inner, I wish that the loveable came with a bamboo outer and fleece inner, I use a seperate liner but that can get bunched up after a whole nights sleep.
They also aren't particularly pretty nappies, and can take a couple of days to dry (but so do all bamboo nappies I have tried).
