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 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.

Re: Flip vs. capri

i like both. i really like the gussets on the capris. the pockets hold prefolds better but when i put a padfolded flat in it the flat bunched up when it got wet.
i like how roomy the capri is but i like how trim and slim the flip is.
