Rocky Mountain One Size Review


Update: This diaper is no longer being made.
This review has been a long time coming.  For some reason I kept pushing it back.  I have been reviewing this diaper since mid September, so I have used it for a very long time!

Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰ Putting a Rocky Mountain OS diaper on a baby is very simple.  There are 4 snaps to affix, 2 on each tab.  You don’t have to fiddle with hit snaps versus waist snaps.  The leg elastic adjustment was hard for me at first.  I struggled to find the snaps buried within the casing.  The trick is to pull the fabric down from the outside while pulling the elastic upwards.  I do think changing the size of the elastic is easier for smaller hands. I imagined my husband’s hands working on pulling the elastic out and I think he would have some trouble.

Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰ The price point is 18.95, right on target for a one size with these features.  The Fuzzibunz is the same price.  Most stores are selling this diaper with an insert now, but when I first started reviewing them they were not.  I think they must have realized their price reflected a diaper with an insert.  As I understand it the insert is the one I used in the video, a long one size microfiber insert.  I like the sizing of this, and think the price is well worth it!

Performance ✰✰✰✰✰ Never a leak in the RMOS.  I have used more stuffing for the overnights because the insert that came with it seemed thin.  I added a Bum Genius microfiber doubler and between the two it has held up.

Fit ✰✰✰✰✰ I have gotten a great fit!  The legs fit my son beautifully thanks to the elastic sizing, and the snaps are placed close enough to always get a good leak free fit there as well.  There haven’t been many red marks, and if any they were on the back, not the legs.

Overall–  The fact that this diaper has most of the features I look for makes me wonder why I don’t think about it more often when talking about one size diapers.  Maybe because the brand name isn’t as present on the internet… I don’t know.  I had a very pleasant experience testing this diaper and I reach for it often.  The suedecloth releases poop easily when it is shakeable, a nice feature!  I love the fact that the inner suedecloth lining is a coordinating color to the PUL.  Even though I don’t normally go for the pastels, these always catch my eye.

I was not paid for this review however the diaper sent was kept.

    This diaper totally confused me when I was first researching cloth diapers. I am not sure why–maybe it was the leg adjustments. Now that I am more aware of what I like in a cloth diaper this one I see myself trying in the future.

  • This is one of my favorite diapers. I was at a shop that did not carry FuzziBunz and the owner recommended Rocky Mountain, as she began carrying it as an alternative to the FuzziBunz one-size. I have to say I’m really pleased with the fit and performance, and it washes really well. I didn’t get an insert with it, so I use others, but rarely have any leaks… and NEVER had a blow out from the infamous breastfed explosive poos. The only negative I can think of is that there is some pilling already after only a couple months of use.
