I have 2 of these and I love them. I have both hook and loop and snaps, and both are nice. The fleece is still nice and soft and the fit has been good all along. Even though they are pretty generously sized, they still fit a smaller baby well. My only complaint is that I wish they came in more colors

This is already one of my favorite pocket diapers in our stash. I absolutely love how they fit around the waist and legs thanks to the two snaps one on top of the other on the wings and the soft, stretchy leg gussets. I have used them with 1 insert and 2 and they remain trim and leak-free. Another reviewer mentioned that if you stuff them with a prefold, then the fit around the legs will gape, but I don't think it's fair to judge a pocket diaper by that test because most aren't designed to accommodate a big bulky prefold. If you overstuff ANY diaper it's just not going to fit as well - that's a no brainer.
More plusses - the Imagine pockets seem to have a bigger size range than my other pockets which means we'll get to use them longer, even into the toddler stage. And I love the bright color choices. They are an excellent value for the money and I am selling some of my other pockets right now so I can hopefully grab 1 or 2 more of these!
These are a no frills pocket diaper. They do run larger in the rise & in the waist than other one size pockets. So much so that I mainly use these as overnight pull ups on my 3 & 4 yr old (both about 40lbs) instead of as a nappy on my 1yr old. I can go ahead & snap em up on the 2nd from end & work great going up & down (I also have them in H&L but can't do this w/ them). But they often leak. There is no PUL on the inside tummy so tummy sleepers beware. Also the pocket is plenty wide but doesn't accommodate much stuffin, b/c the more you stuff, the farther it pulls the leg elastic away so it will not fit snugly against the leg & thus you're prone to have a leak again. It only comes with 1 insert probably for that reason. I like to stuff with prefolds but they bulk it up too much. One good thing I've noticed though is that these have been less prone to get the stinkies than other pockets I've had
