I have tried both the old style and the new style of these all in ones (AIO). They use velcro closures and the only differences between V1 and V2 is that they removed the fleece from the leg gussets and made the soaker a little wider. I agree the changes in the V2 are better, but V1 has performed pretty much the same, so I am happy with them as well.
You cannot beat the convenience of an AIO! No stuffing or unstuffing, and the most similar to a disposal diaper. It would be a pricier route to have all your CD be AIOs, but you’d still save a significant amount of money compared to disposals. I like to have a handful of “sized” diapers in my stash, because they are more trim and so convinient. These are not as absorbent as my daughter needs as a toddler, but have a pocket so that extra inserts may be added.
I have found these AIOs to be trim and the velcro closures are convenient as well (again, similar to how you would secure a disposal). I only wish they offered them in a snap closure for better “toddler-proofing” and durability of the diapers. My snap diapers all look much newer than my velcro diapers that are the same age.
