The importance of a quality zipper

There is a wide variety of zippers to choose from out there. They are used in clothing, bags and all different types of gear. When the zipper fails the product often becomes useless.

In order to give the end user a less expensive product it may be tempting to cut cost on the zipper as it’s a detail which is often overlooked by the consumer. We’re of a different opinion

The devil is in the details and the tent is only as strong as its weakest point. We put clear emphasis on a high quality zipper. It must meet the same high standards that you set for the other parts of the tent, such as the flysheet, poles, straps etc. If not, the overall assessment of the tent becomes poorer and optimal choices with the other details lose significance.

That is why we have chosen the YKK zipper for all our product line. The brand dates back to 1934 and is world renowned for its strength, durability and reliability. The YKK is a zipper to be trusted throughout the lifespan of the tent.

The zipper is as mentioned very important. If it fails, parts of the tent gets pretty much unusable. In addition to a quality zipper your own use of it also matter. Taking care of the zipper is therefore essential to make it work as expected through the entire lifespan of the tent.

Keep away dirt, sand, etc. These small particles may be a silent workers on a mission to destroy your zipper. With that said. It may be a good idea to also clean the zipper regularly to keep it "fresh" and functional over time.. One tip once in a while is to rub the zipper with some candle wax. This will help the puller to have a smooth glide on the zipper itself. We do not recommend using oil, etc as this may attract particles or even wander on to fabric of the tent. You do not want that.

Take care of the zipper and it will last the entire lifespan of the tent.
