Smart Snugs One Size Pocket Video and Review

Smart Snugs is a brand I wasn’t familiar with until they contacted me and requesteda review.  I’m really happy they did!  Just from what I have seen so far this is a great diaper for an even better price!

Ease of Use ✩✩✩ While snapping cloth diapers and pockets will take longer than any disposable diaper, once you have stuffed the diaper it is pretty easy to put on the baby. 3 snaps per tab also sounds worse than 2 or 1 but after you have done it a few times it gets really easy. My biggest complaint about the diaper would be how narrow the pocket opening is. I have very small hands so I think some people would have a hard time with it.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩✩ I’m still shocked that the retail for this diaper is only 12.00! It includes the one bamboo/cotton insert. The price is low in part because the diapers are manufactured in China. For some people that is a deal breaker. I don’t think this diaper is going to be great on a newborn but few one size diapers are. I was really happy with how the legs fit on Everett. They have a wider cut, more like briefs than bikinis if you think in terms of underwear. The legs ride lower. So I would bet this works well for chunky legs.
Performance ✩✩✩✩✩ The cotton and bamboo insert was absorbent enough for our daytime use. For nights I added a bumGenius microfiber doubler in the pocket and this held us over for both kids. (Fletcher still wets at night on occasion.)
Fit ✩✩✩✩✩ I really loved how this fit Everett. Some people might not love the way the legs are cut because it isn’t like some of the more well known one size pockets on the market, but it worked for us and we didn’t have any red marks or leaks. The rise snaps do look different than many others in their positions but it doesn’t seem to change how it fits for the middle rise compared to other brands on the middle snap that fit baby Ev.
Overall: For 12.00 I can’t complain about a thing on the Smart Snugs. I also will say that the owner, Samantha, has been great to work with. She was emailing with me promptly and I can only assume she would be willing to do so with any customers needing help. For an inexpensive pocket they also hve rise snaps that match the PUL, something I prefer when I am buying cloth diapers. The diapers carry a 1 year warranty as well. The only thing that bothered me was the narrow opening of the pocket.

      I think they are great diapers for the price and fit Ev really well.

    I too have been very happy with fit and performance, and of course price. Do often stuff with a MF Bumgenius insert as I have a heavy wetter. Mine have dark grey fleece on the inside which really is quite nice!

    As great as these diapers are, their customer service is actually terrible. I’m sure they were nice to you because you were doing something in favor of them. But when they falsely advertised something on their website, which was their mistake and not mine, they told me they were sorry that I “misunderstood” and that I wasn’t going to receive what I had paid for. When I complained about this, told some of my cloth diaper friends and they posted on their wall, and then filed a complaint through PayPal they finally took action… ridiculous.

      I completely agree with you! I had problems with their all in twos and purchased a whole stash! They basically ignored my claim and they DON’T have a hassle free warranty. I washed mine 3 times and the white elastic (around the thighs) started to tear off. I love their pockets, but due to the customer service, i will not purchase from them again. 🙁
