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.

Overall, I am pleased with the kit. I have made three. Two with the printed plaid and one using Dyneema material. I wasn’t sure about sewing the Dyneema material, and am pleasantly surprised at the relative ease it was to work with, at least with this size of project. One issue I had was getting the orientation of the zipper correct. The first project I ended up with the pulls for the zipper on the inside. For second and third kits, in addition to playing the video as before, I ‘dry fitted’ the parts, folding into place and pinning to double check the final orientation of the zipper.
