I feel like velcro fits better but snaps look better. Snaps last longer and will have a better resale value if you are worried about that. Velcro wears out but is more daddy and daycare friendly. If you have enough on your gift card why not get a mix of both and see which one you like better.

The snaps will last longer but the velcro will fit better. Also the velcro is obviously easier for little hands to undo.

I've been a velcro hater for a long time, but I really like the 4.0 velcro. It seems to work really well. The jury is still out in terms of longevity, but I am a fan. You really can't go wrong with either.

Re: bumgenius 4.0 velcro vs. snaps reviews

I love snaps. I like how they fit, like they are more flexible verse the hard stiff strip of aplix, and I find I find a nice variety to size with snaps even if its not the same slots on each side. But Aplix is much quicker and easier, however, it doesnt hold up as well either. I dont like my whites because they're become dingy no matter how much I sun them they look kind of yellow. I haven't had that problem with any of my other ones even the lighter ones. So I dont know why, but both my white BGs are not as bright as they used to be.

Re: bumgenius 4.0 velcro vs. snaps reviews

I was very leary of getting the 4.0 aplix because the 3.0's were awful. i only bought all snaps and i liked them alot. then cb had that big seconds sale and i was only able to get aplix. i am so happy i did! i love them and the new aplix is great! it is so much nicer. i always get a great fit with the aplix and havent had any problems with it at all. i do still like the snaps though, but i like the aplix a little better.

I have both and like both for different reasons. They both fit great! The Aplix is a little faster to put on and is less intimidating to a beginners or people unfamiliar with CDing.

I have both and like both! I prefer the velcro but I don't like the idea of replacing it when it goes. I was on the babies r us website and they have the snaps in colour.

thank you for letting me know this! they do now have the color snaps! i think they may have been in the process of adding things on, because the first day i checked they didn't even have the photos up! i'm going to order them right now =)

thanks a ton for everyone's
