Yeah, I guess they would. For some reason I was picturing an aio with an extra snap in insert when I said ai2s would take longer to dry. Oops! Can you tell I've never actually owned an ai2. My pockets are all 3+ years old and I don't really remember there being Ai2s when I was doing my shopping.

I'm the odd one out and did not like my BG elementals.  (In fact, I just sold those.)  I would go with pockets.

Me too.  I got one to try and ended up selling it to Bree.  (Now part of *her* enormous stashLOL)
 
I didn't like the lack of stay dry liner (LO hates being wet) and the long dry time of the soaker.

After the dryer, I always had to semi-turn the insert inside out to completely dry.  They tended to look dirty all the time (in comparision to my pockets) and they'd smell to me.  For some reason, they didn't fit the same as the BG 4.0.  They didn't seem as absorbent, either.  And mine got holes around the inside layer, even though they weren't used as much as my 4.0s.  Oh, and the inside layer seemed to roll out when I would put it on her, so I had to make sure that it was tucked in.

Just some differences, really, from what I was used to with the 4.0s.  Something I could adjust and work with, if needed.

I like Ai2 diapers.  I have used several brands and loved them all.

I've only used swaddlebees AIO diapers.  While I didn't have any issues with them at all, they were my least favorite system.  I like fuss-free stuff.  I worried about using bleach in the was with AIO diapers having the PUL attached.  

Never even tried pockets--I primarily like cotton diapers so this pretty much eliminates most of them. (though swaddlebees could be considered pocket-ish)

Hmm, that stinks (literallyTongue).  That's so interesting, I wonder if you got a bad batch or something. I do turn mine "in side out" to get them to dry faster, but I've never had any of the other problems and we use them a ton.
