Flip vs. capri
 
Wondering how the flip cover compares to the swaddlebees Capri covers?

I have flips that fit good. They are slightly wide in the crotch & the flaps don't do a perfect job of holding a prefold. BUT they never leak, are durable. Just wondering if I would like the Capri better? Or something else entirely? (DS is a 30 pound toddler :)

The Capri 's are even Wider in the crotch area and more durable than flips.

Yep this exactly and they hold a prefold or flat better. I also find they fit much bigger. My son is almost 40lbs and the size 2 with apix he still has lots of room to grow. I bet they would fit till 45lbs almost.

I really like them but my son is out of diapers now so selling off any "boyish" things since I have more then enough girly stuff :)

OP: Check this thread out. A little update though, I really like the fit of the Capri now.

:yeahthat: I love the pockets that hold the insert more on the capri, but because it's wider in the crotch, a thicker fabic and had thicker leg casings and gussets it rubs my sons's legs raw. I have a one and a two and half year old and both are walking so, maybe for a crawler or newbie.
