Wahts the difference between older BG'S and newer style?

I guess the title says it all. From pictures in FSOT I can only see that some have a tag sticking out on one side.
I'm assuming I have an old style, it works great, so what did they do differently in the newer style? (Not the really new fleece insides instead of suedecloth)

The tabs were the main thing. On the old style, the velcro snagged the stretchy tabs really badly. The new style has a different stretchy fabric that doesn't snag so much. Also, the laundry tabs on the old style were smaller. The new style has much larger laundry tabs so they're easier to use.

I have one of each and they both work great.

Also, all of the older style has a really soft velcro strip across the front (like what the loop-part on the cross-over tab is made of), but the new ones all have the typical Aplix loop strip across the front now. If the strip on the older one is snagged by other velcro dipes in the wash it can really stretch things out of proportion because it's so soft and pliable. The aplix loop has a much stiffer backing.

Thanks guys, now I'm not sure if I have older or newer, theres no label, but the front velcro panel isn't soft and easily stretched. Who knows!
They still work great.

if the laundry tabs have an X stitched in them they are the new style if not then they are the older style. That was the difference in mine

There is an x on the laundry tab. Maybe they are newer afterall, with the stiffer Velcro and the x I guess they are. I wonder where the label went.

If the velcro across the front is NOT the same as the velcro used for the laundry tabs inside the dipe, then you have a newer one. No idea if any of the newer ones were made before the tags were added or not. So I'm no help there.
