This is a very cool kit, and the price is definitely right! Unfortunately, there are a couple things that sort of take away from it.
For starters, there are no written directions. There’s a link to a video, but if you have trouble learning from videos, you’re SOL. The video directions are also not amazing. I’m an experienced sewist (like, I sew lingerie regularly), and I found it a bit frustrating trying to complete this project, and I think that was largely due to having to google for written directions to similar projects, and then adapt them to fit.
Additionally, I found the color didn’t really match what I’d selected. I was looking for a greenish teal, but ended up with dark hunter green.
All that said, it’s still a great kit, and if you don’t have any learning issues and aren’t picky about colors, it’s worth a buy.

Had a great time sewing up these kits for Christmas gifts! The delivery was a bit slower due to the Black Friday rush… But I was able to get them done and out in time. They were a HUGE hit!!
Thanks so much for the review and your patience while your package got delivered to you. The ZPP Kits make great gifts, we're glad they were a hit!
This was my second build-your-own-gear project. I just got a sewing machine, and wanted to make something I'd use as well as check out the dyneema fabric. With some help from youtube videos, I got it all put together in not too long, and it looks good. The only gotcha was that my fabric came with a border, and I initially tried to cut it off. I eventually figured out that the border would be hidden with the correct edge folding.
Thanks so much Jud! We are glad your second DIY project turned out well and that the kit was easy to sew. Let us know if you have any questions about creating future projects, we're here to help!
Everything is perfectly cut and ready to go. And there are plenty of how-to videos on Youtube to explain how to complete the project.
Thanks Dan! We're glad you were satisfied with the ZPP Kit with Dyneema! Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, we're here to help!
