I have a couple of mediums and overall I really like them, but there are a few cons too. I like them because they are really nicely made and have great workmanship. The fit is good and I love the wide elastic across the back. The elastics also have a nice soft stretch, so they are snug but don't leave red marks (not sure if this means they won't last as long, but I like it for now).
The first minor con for me (may not bother some people) is that the pocket opens from the front, so you always have to touch the soggiest part of the insert to remove it. Not that big a deal, but I prefer back opening.
The second con which is more major for me, is that the front panel isn't quite wide enough, so when the nappy is done up on it's loosest setting one snap stud on either side isn't in use and is touching the baby's skin and digs in to leave deep red circles, which must feel horrible. If it was just 1cm wider on either side, the panel would cover it and it wouldn't be an issue.
Overall though I really like them and would buy more, just either not use them on the largest setting or sew a patch of fleece or something over that last snap so they don't dig in.
ETA have added photos to show what I mean.
