The internet tells tales of an amazing cloth diaper brand creating a cloth diaper cover people can’t help but rave about. I fell in love with these covers and slowly accumulated a reasonably sized stash of GroVia Hybrid Shells. Mighty affordable and versatile, these covers fit like a charm. But then, Omaïki knocked on my door and introduced me to the Omaiki Cabrio.
Today I’m hashing out a few reasons I think the Omaïki Cabrio is a better cloth diaper cover compared to the GroVia Hybrid Shells. I think you should start collecting them today. This comparison of a GroVia cloth diaper cover to Omaïki cloth diaper system will blow you out of the park. It probably won’t because we’re talking cloth diapers and that’s boring.

There is a good chance you are familiar with the GroVia Hybrid Shell as its a fairly popular cloth diaper and reasonably budget friendly. GroVia is an amazing brand with strong values and morals. However, I think the recent release by the Canadian brand and manufacturer, Omaiki, is better.
The Omaïki Cabrio is one of those diapers I would build an entire stash with. At one point, I thought I would build an entire stash with GroVia Hybrids, but the times have changed and since the Cabrio’s release in 2017, this cloth diaper blogger is head over heels in excitement.
7 Reasons the Omaiki Cabrio is Better.
- Double Waist Snaps: GroVia is a Single Waist snap, and I just prefer the higher waist and more grip of a double. #personalprefernce
- No Hip Snaps: GroVia has hip snaps, and now that my toddler is over 37 pounds they don’t have a snap to clip into. He doesn’t like how it digs and tears the diaper off. Meanwhile, the Omaïki Cabrio is an amazing fit.
- PUL Tummy Panel: No tummy panels on the GroVia Hybrid Shell which means… not much of anything really, but if you like that added protection and space its a win.
- Slightly Bigger: GroVia is smaller, and Omaïki is just bigger enough to make a great choice for moms of bigger babies.
- 4 Rise settings: GroVia only has 3 which limits options. I like options. I dont like the double rise snap on the Omaiki, I do prefer the triple on the GroVia, but I’ll take what I can get.
- Made in Canada: GroVia is a USA company manufacturing in China, while Omaïki manufactures in Quebec. This is a local product and a major win for connoisseurs of high quality locally manufactured products.
- More Affordability: Solids for $19 and prints for $23, the Omaïki Cabrio can be a more affordable option. A GroVia Hybrid Shells cost $22.95 in Canada.
GroVia cloth diapers are amazing. Don’t get me wrong, but if you’re wondering what makes the Omaiki Cabrio special, its because it is very similar to the GroVia shell but better. It features all of the things I love about a Blueberry Capri or a Flip, but more like a GroVia. #makeababy.
I’m also equally obsessed with English Roses print from Omaïki and can’t wait to see what else will be released this year. The GroVia Comparison is a tight call, but I’m destashing my GroVia and loading up on the Omaïki because these 7 things make it for me.
If you have a question or want to know more drop me a comment, I’d love to chat.
PS. You can find Grovia and Omaïki at Calgary Cloth Diaper Retailer here in Canada. If you are in the states, you need to find a Canadian cloth diaper retailer to ship to the states, and an authorized American Cloth Diaper Retailer to sell you GroVia.
