If you've never built a zippered pouch before, or if you just need a refresher, watch this video first. Many thanks to Devin at Backcountry Exposure for this fantastic instructional video!
IMPORTANT - Please pay special attention to orientation of the Uretek coil zipper. A common mistake when constructing the ZPP is to flip the zipper the wrong way out.
The video above details the correct orientation with teeth FACE DOWN when attaching coil to fabric. This will ensure the water-resistant, coated side of the Uretek zipper ends up on the outside of your ZPP.

This kit was a perfect beginner project for me. Will certainly be buying a few more things to create and build up to more complex projects.
Thanks Chad! The ZPP kits are the perfect thing to get you addicted to making your own gear. Let us know if you have any questions!
Ok I'm addicted now...
This was a GREAT starting point and a great place to get a little practice with synthetic fabrics and zippers. I ended up buying a few more to make as birthday gifts for friends.
Making your own gear for yourself and friends is addicting, but we support you! Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, Thanks Virginia!
I have not had a chance to sew it up yet, buth the service from Rip Stop is superior. Great web site and fast service
Thanks Rich! Let us know if you have any questions as you make your own gear, enjoy!
Great way to familiarize yourself with some of the technical fabrics offered and some basic construction techniques to make a very useful and good looking bit of kit.
Thanks for the review Alex! We're glad you found this ZPP kit useful to familiarizing yourself with making your own gear, enjoy!
I have not made it yet .
All the pieces were in the kit and it is ready to go .. No instructions on how to make or where to watch the video to make .. That would have been helpful . I almost gave it a 4 star just because of that.
