Zipper Repairs

zipper replacement on REI vest

We replaced the main zipper on this REI vest with a slightly larger gauge zipper for better durability.


blue coat with broken zipperblue coat with repaired 2 way zipper

The zipper on this blue REI jacket had broken completely at the bottom pin, plus the teeth were very worn out. We replaced it with a very similar gray 2-way zipper which matched the trims on the jacket.


zipper slider repair on winter jacket

This jacket simply lost the zipper slider, which is the metal moving part of the zipper. This is a very easy repair- we replaced the slider and had the zipper working in no time.

 We replaced a waterproof pocket zipper on this teal rain jacket. Since we didn’t have the exact same colored zipper in stock, we used a black zipper to match as closely as possible while maintaining the waterproof features.

tent zip composite

This tent zipper had a steep curve where the zipper would split open. We replaced the whole zipper, but this type of problem can often be resolved by replacing the zipper sliders.

Down Garment Patches

Here are some good examples of a patches on down garments. We try to follow the seam lines that are already there to hide the patch. We have many fabrics in stock and although we cannot guarantee a perfect color match, we can usually get very close.
