Before having our first child, we ordered several different types of cloth diapers, and workhorses fitted quickly became our favorites by far. Now, two years later and with another baby (9 months old) they're all we use besides a few prefolds (also from GMD).
We very rarely have leaks, the fit is perfect, they wash easily, dry relatively quickly, and are easy for babysitters to figure out. I love that they're cotton, and they look great. I suspect that we'll replace all of our prefolds with more workhorse fitteds when we have a third child. I fully expect these diapers to last through any children we have, and will probably be given to someone else when we're through. I always recommend these with a snappi with Flip covers to anyone asking about cloth diapers.
I have mixed feeling about this diaper. The price is excellent for a fitted diaper and it's nice that you can get it with snaps. I find the snaps difficult, especially if the diaper is wet. They do seem to hold up well over time and you don't have to get every size. I have used the red and brown trim over the past year (6 mos. to 17 mos.). Now baby is a tall 27 pounder and needs a bigger size.
They aren't as stretchy or giving as Babee Greens cotton fitted diaper. Also I found an ebay seller organicsandmore that sells organic cotton fitted diaper with velcro for the same price, which I like better. The velcro is easier and the diaper is fits better, more like Babee Green diapers
