I *hate* my HHOS!!! I have a Candy Pink I wanna trade for a HPOS or BGOS in a boy/GN color. I'm not sure how to explain this, but I think if there was sewing along the leg elastic, the fleece liner would turn in more instead of out & it might be better w/ wicking around the legs.

I voted "none of the above" b/c I DEFINITELY prefer HPOS w/ Aplix/Velcro. BG's are definitely great b/c they'll last the longest, but I like the thinner-seeming/less bulkiness of HPs. I think they may be a lil narrower between the legs and I think they come in quite a pretty range of colors. Also, I think the inserts absorb more b/c there's more mf than w/ the BGOS 3.0's inserts. My HPOS work over night for my 2.5 yo w/ a Hemp Babies: Little Weeds diaper doubler. ;o)

The stupid thing is...they try to make the fleece turn out. They say it in some descriptions. It's so dumb.

Hmm... Seems it's causing the wicking & that's the only thing I can think of about it that's different from other OS pockets. Maybe it wouldn't solve the problem to sew it? :dunno:

My problem with the BG os is that my almost 2 year old cannot use them. He's average for his wieght, 27 lbs and above average for height, around 36-37 ins. The BG velcro always rubs his poor little legs leaving horrible red marks. I've tried and tried putting them on different ways to see if it made a difference, and it does not. So I've gone back to my pre folds and wraps. I'm using the BG's on my 4 month old instead and don't have a problem. I'm just not sure why they rub ds. I was actually debating buying some hh's. So thanks for the topic! I'll stay away from them!

If the BGOS is rubbing him, you might want to try just one HHOS cause the rise is definitely higher and the velcro is different. I say try one cause I'd hate to see you be stuck with alot if you don't like them. You can find them used pretty cheap.
