I have both and I think there are pros and cons to both.
The zipper ones I have are definitely snug! It can be a pain sometimes to get them on, but once they are on they stay in place.
The velcro ones are easier to put on, but because I can't get them as snug as the zipper ones they will sometimes slip up on my leg just a tad.
I would definitely recommend going to a tack store and trying them on if possible. With something like half chaps where you want a snug fit, it's much less hassle in the long run if you can do that versus ordering multiple pairs, seeing which fits best, and then returning the others.
