Pockets are the most common cloth diaper. They can also be the least expensive version of a modern cloth diaper. Pockets are usually a diaper that has a PUL cover with fleece sewn 3/4 of the way around. Pocket flaps can be present in the front, back, or even middle of diapers. Pocket diapers do require a soaker to be stuffed inside. These can be made of microfiber, cotton, hemp, or bamboo. The upside is that if a baby has special absorbency requirements certain parts of the day (ie. nap or bed time_, pockets can be stuffed accordingly.
