Flip & Diaper Rite Cover Comparison

If you are curious about how the Flip cover compares to the Diaper Rite cover, I hope you will find this post helpful in your decision making process.

*Both covers were purchased by me and I have not been compensated to write this review.  All views expressed are my honest opinion.


Flip & Diaper Rite Cover Comparison

Here is a table comparing the material, closure, sizing, price and warranty of the two covers.

The blue cover is the Diaper Rite Cover and the pink one is the Flip cover.  I apologize that the lighting is not consistent in all the photographs.


  Wing Snaps
As you can see, the Diaper right cover has three snaps on the tab and a cross-over snap.





The flap in the back of the Diaper Rite cover has elastic that keeps it taut, while the flap in the back of the Flip is loose.

The front flaps on both covers are very similar.

Note in the pictures above that the Diaper Rite cover is narrower than the Flip through the crotch, but it is cut wider through the bum.

Largest Rise





Medium Rise:






Small Rise

Both covers are good options.  The Flip cover runs slightly smaller than the Diaper Rite cover, which means that it will fit smaller babies a little better but the Diaper Rite cover will fit longer.  Both are generously cut and can accomodate fitteds.  The elasticized back flap of the Diaper Rite cover does a better job of holding inserts in place than the loose flap the Flip has.  The Diaper Rite cover is made with TPU which is supposed to be better for the environment but is said to be not quite as durable as PUL.  Flip’s warranty is good for a year, provided the care instructions are followed precisely.  Diaper Rite’s warranty covers workmanship issues for 90 days, and snaps are covered for a year.  Diaper Rite is a better value though at $8.95 vs. the $13.95 the Flip costs.

Both Flip and Diaper Rite covers are sold at Diaper Junction.

  1. Whoa, excellent comparison! I was just wondering the other day about the Diaper Rite covers. I love that you have tons of pics and the color scheme is so calming (I know, corny that I noticed that).

      Thanks Autumn! Your encouragment means a lot–and I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know :) I love that you find my colors calming–that’s sweet of you to say. I’m a bit self-conscious of my less-than-professional-looking blog ;)

    thanks for the comparison. i use Flip covers exclusively and didnt even know about Diaper Rite covers. i need more covers and think i will try the Diaper Rites because they are so affordable.

    can you do a comparison of these covers as well as Oekopopo diaper covers?? are there any other waterproof covers out there i can check out??

    • Anna says:

      I’m so glad you found the review helpful! I really like our Diaper Rite cover–so far it has been great.

      I only have an Oeko Popo Batumee diaper–I haven’t had the privilege of trying one of her regular covers yet, so I don’t have one on hand to compare.

      There are other waterproof covers–Thirsties, GroVia, Blueberry, Peachy Green Switcheroo, Kawaii, Bestbottom, Econobum–lots to choose from!

      What are you hoping to use them for? Over fitteds, flats, inserts? They are all shaped differently, so some are better over fitteds and others are better with inserts.

    I LOVE LOVE your side by side comparisons! SO thorough and super helpful esp when I want to send a link to a friend who’s considering cloth diapering with hybrids. Thanks so much!

  4. Janice Auna says:

    Thank you so much for this! Very helpful, I was wondering if the quality of the diaper rite was comparable to that of flips. First time buyer, so you helped save me some money:)

    • Janice Auna says:

      Btw. Are there any other brands of diapers I should know about that have the same design as the flips and diaper rights? With the two flaps on the inside that is?

    • Anna says:

      I am so glad you found the comparison helpful. I’d love to hear what you think of them after you’ve had a chance to try them out!

  5. Becky says:

    Where is the Diaper Rite cover made?

  6. aw says:

    Can.I use either of these with prefolds and a snappi? I thought thats the way they were used but seems as if maybe inserts are best? thanks

    • Anna says:

      Definitely! I have used both of these with folded flats and a snappi (or boingo or a pin)–you could very easily use them with prefolds and a snappi. I like to trifold prefolds and just use them as an insert, but it is not the only way the covers can be used. They also work well over fitteds and contours. Thanks for commenting :)

  7. Christy says:

    Can I ask you simply, which one you prefer? I am trying to decide between these two. I would like to do the Diaper Rite just simply because of the $$ savings. Thank you

    • Anna says:

      Sure! I prefer the diaper rite because I feel like it does a better job of holding inserts in place and the TPU is softer than the PUL of the Flip :)

    This is awesome! Great job on all the pics. Wonderful comparison.

I'd love to hear your questions, comments and suggestions!
