Thirsties fans have been waiting a long time for this news: the hook and loop closure on diapers, covers and fitteds is now wider, stronger and longer-lasting. You’ll find the new hook and loop closure on their covers, fitteds and AIO diapers.
Here’s a quick photo comparison using my old (mango) Duo Wrap and an improved (aqua) Duo Wrap:
One of the biggest problems encountered by Thirsties fans was the hook and loop closure snagging on other stuff in the laundry. Thirsties wanted to address this issue with the new aplix tabs. I’ve tested my new and improved cover this week and the hook and loop is definitely stronger. It’s noticably harder to unstick the tabs from the strip on the waistband and from the laundry tabs. They do not come undone in the wash anymore.
The new Thirsties hook and loop is stronger thanks to a wider design; the larger surface area means more sticking power. They’ve also upgraded to a more durable hook and loop product so your Thirsties covers should last a lot longer.
So I’m really impressed with the new hook and loop, however it did not eliminate the waistband problem.
With the new hook and loop changes come some color/print changes (Duo Wraps and sized covers are now available in the same colors/prints), so if you are feeling nostalgic and want to grab some of the older styles at deep discounts before they are gone for good, check out Kelly’s Closet (aff link) and see what’s left in stock! I grabbed my new covers from Kelly’s Closet because they were one of the very first shops to have them available.
