Canadian cloth diaper retailer Rig N Gig is known for many things including their regular cloth diaper, but most importantly their training pant. This is a cloth trainer that everyone I know raves about because of it’s ease of use and verstality. But let’s not spoil the secrets before we get to the review.
About Rig N Gig
Rig N Gig is a low cost diaper retailer based out of Alberta selling diapers to Canada and the USA. It’s a passion business by owner Karyn, who sought to bring families low-cost diapering solutions. Because this industry is widely polarized between higher cost products and wholesale direct from factory products. The problem when you buy direct from factory is you don’t get any support, you don’t know what the diaper is going to be, and there’s and no quality checks in place.
Because sometimes when you order direct from factory you don’t know what you’re going to get – these diapers are with in similar price range as many diapers available on AliExpress with the benefit of shipping direct from Canada meaning you’ll get your package even sooner.
Maybe we should call it a pull up instead of a trainer because it’s more like a pull on diaper than an aide for potty training. If you’ve got a bigger kid, or you’re looking for a more stand-up diaper change type diaper, pull-ups are the thing you should be looking for.
Here’s a few of the great features of the RnG Pull Ups
- Pocket diaper with pocket opening at the back and front
- Side Snaps
- One Size with 4 snap sizes offering an 18 inch waist (smallest)
- Extenders available for another 6” of waist.
- Athletic Wicking Jersey Inner
Review of the RnG Pull Up
This is a standard pocket cloth diaper made with side snaps – and that’s the current trend that I’m loving. We saw Bebeboo take their pocket diaper and make it into a side snap, and it changed the game for accessible diapering design.
Side Snaps are not just for poopy messes.
Side snaps give kids that pull-on ease of us that makes them feel like they are wearing underwear and not a diaper. Some will think it’s still a diaper, but some will feel empowered.
The Pocket functionality is awesome because it both reduces the cost of the product for you, but also encourages you to create your own absorbency with what you have already.
Many of us purchase training aides after we purchased an entire stash of cloth diapers and it can feel like another painful expense – but when brands switch to these basic products we can use what we have in the pocket opening and get more bang out of our buck.
I’m seriously loving it, and I want more people to make their cloth diapers accessible for a wider range of sizes, bodies, and abilities.
The RnG pull-up does have nice short wings and would be more ideal for larger size children. If you like their pocket diaper, or generally like pocket diapers, it would be a good fit for your family.
Recommendation for the Rig N Gig Trainer
If you need to transition out of diapers and into pull-ups, this is a great choice for you. It’s perfect for cloth diapering toddlers and preschoolers, while offering you the ability to mix and match your current stash with something more affordable.
