This zipper was a breeze to work with once I figured out how to add the zipper pull (which also was easy). The zipper is easily cut to length and also sews easily on my regular sewing machine. I have yet to try the bag in the rain so I can’t speak as to its waterproofness.
Ripstop by the Roll has been my #1 place for top-notch fabrics and hardware for many years. I've made hammocks with zippered mesh covers, rainflies, added pockets to backpacks, bikepacking bags, etc, and it all starts at here.
The HHH Waterproof Coil Zipper was a fist-time purchase, and it did not disappoint! I built a bikepacking top tube bag that spans from the headset to the seat tube, and I wanted a stout zipper that could be opened and closed with one hand. I put two pulls opposite each other so the bag is closed when the pulls are at opposite ends. This allows me to access one side it the other without opening the whole thing.
I highly recommend this zipper I was able to open and close the bag with one-hand while still riding everytime on a recent bikepacking adventure.
If I had to remake this bag again, I'd do it exactly the same.
Thank you so much Dustin for leaving us a review and being a long-time customer! We'd love to see a photo of your top tube creation, be sure to tag us on social media!
the zippers and the pulls are great quality i have been making hipbelt pockets and they work great. Only issue is that I just recently ordered 10 feet and I started pulling the zipper out of the bag it arrived in 12 inch increments and I would pull out enough to cut and I got to number 6 and the zipper came out completely. I did the math and I was shorted at least 3 full feet. I know mistakes happen but WOW that is unexceptable.
