Re: Wetbags: zipper or velcro closure?

Zippers are great...they don't get stuff stuck in them like velcro and they don't wear out. You can always leave the bag open if you want it to "breath". And velcro is so noisy imo. I do agree that you want a zipper pull that's comfortable to open and close frequently. Some Pulls are tiny and a pain. I also really like the YKK Long Pull Handbag zippers. As someone else mentioned, Monkey Foot Designs uses the Long Pull Zipper and that is what I use on all of my Loving O.Z. Wet Bags as well.

Under my snack bags, you can see a picture of 2 different zipper pulls.( Zipit is where I get mine...the ones at Joann's work well too, but not quite as easily)

Re: Wetbags: zipper or velcro closure?

I have one wetbag with velcro. I made it in a pinch one day and velcro was the quickest, easiest option at the moment. I hate it. It's hard to pull apart the velcro and noisy and when I wash it, it stays closed, so I have no idea if the inside is getting clean. If I turned it inside out, the velco would snag the rest of my diapers.

So yeah, zippers or drawstrings, depending on what kind of usage you are planning. I like zippers best.
