I received this product free for review. All opinions remain my own.
The list of cloth diaper brands I haven’t tried is getting shorter and shorter… and Moraki has been at the top of the “must try” list for quite some time. Naturally, when Boutique Le Chaton Vert, the only Canadian online retailer to carry this California-made brand approached me for a review, my answer was YES YES YES!
It was not a difficult choice of print: I had to have Hippie!
The Moraki AI2/Pocket system consists of a pocket shell which opens at about midway towards the back (similar to AppleCheeks) so that in many washers, the insert will agitate out of the pocket. The interior is stay-dry fleece, and the included insert is a “Fold to Fit” hemp/cotton blend.
When using as an AI2, the front of the shell has a PUL flap in which to tuck the insert. I love the PUL flap even when using as a pocket, since it’s extra protection against waist leaks.
Moraki has basically married my two favourite cloth diapering features: the stay-dry pocket with a hemp/cotton insert. No other stay-dry pocket diaper in my collection has come with an insert that I’ve kept using! (My BumGenius 4.0s, for example, are all stuffed with an Öko Creations hemp insert and their native microfibre inserts tossed aside.)
I absolutely adore the fit of our Moraki diaper on Cub: the rise is nice and high and the diaper is trim.
We haven’t experienced any leaks or other performance issues.
The hip snaps mean there’s no wing-droop, although we are on the absolute last waist snap. If he gets any wider at the waist before potty learning, we’ll have to leave the hip snap exposed.
What we love about our Moraki Cloth Diaper:
- Made in California;
- Included hemp insert;
- Stay-dry inner;
- Tall rise;
- Tummy flap;
- Thick back-waist elastic;
- Super trim, even under leggings!
What we love less about our Moraki Cloth Diaper:
- I’d love to see an included booster;
- Does it count if I say I wish we had more than one?
We are easily able to use our Moraki with its hemp insert for two hours during the day. I’ve used it over night with the hemp insert on top of the pocket and two microfiber boosters inside the pocket (it’s what I was able to grab for an unplanned pre-bedtime change, and I was crossing my fingers that it would work). When we’re on an outing, just like with all my diapers, I add a single microfiber booster directly beneath the pocket.
