|I hate thirsties. Had problems with the binding wicking onto clothes. Never ever had a leak with a rikki wrap (or airflow for that matter).
Personally, compared to other covers I have tried, rikki wraps have more coverage where the leg gussets are concerned.
DD sleeps in a pf and rikki wrap. Goes 9+ hrs with no leaks. Thirsties.....we had leaks in way less time then that.
No laundry tabs not a problem. Just close the rikki and wash.
