I have both, but most of them are snaps. The velcro is ok, but wears out after abotu a year or so and starts to look a little ratty (any velcro diaper will do this, not just BG).. but i MUCH prefer the snaps. they stay looking new I have been using them for 17 months, and my snap ones still look pretty new!

Yes the BG have back elastic, and all of the elastic is very gentle on the skin but contains poop really well... i adore my BG!!! They make up about 95% of my stash... cant say enough good about them! I have never ever had one delaminate or had the PUL crack...nothing. they are workhorse diapers for sure!

ETA: Plus their resale value is quite good and they are always pretty popular on the FSOT boards!
