#10 coil zipper
« on: March 22, 2016, 06:48:56 AM »
I am in need of 5 yards of #10 coil zipper Coyote Brown 498 with Reverse Bail Sliders. I'm mostly interested in the sliders as I have sources for the zipper, however, I would prefer one stop shopping. I'm flexible on color too, I would be happy with Coyote Tan or Tan 499 if you have that rather than 498.

Thank you
Bill

If you get in a bind, I have a roll of #9 coil in 498 with reverse sliders.
It is Ideal brand from GSI, USA stuff.

Thanks Scott. I have the same zippers from GSI in all colors. Unfortunately for my inventory, the product specs call for #10.

Just as a warning, Ideal has some serious bad reputation in terms of durability. I have no idea if what I got from GSI was US or foreign, but when my teacher (and apparel industry wizard-lady) ask what zipper my pack used (since the slider was flaking) and I said it was Ideal, she said "oh, there is your problem" followed up by a story of how shitty their finish was.

I've seen the sliders flake on all of the packs I still have around, so it's not just a sample of one (even though they were all bought from GSI at the same time, so probably same batch).

Let me know if you still need the sliders.... I have a few hundred extra YKK #10 reverse bail in 498. Unfortunately, I don't have any extra zipper tape to spare.
