Does anyone out there remember an article or post a couple years back on BPL on how to add side ankle zips to wind/rain pants?

I know it exists but can't seem to locate it when I search on the forums and the website.

Anybody got the link?

It was part of Wil Rietveld's 2005 review on the Golite Reed pants

Bob . . . you are the man! That was the exact article I was thinking about. Thanks.

I just got a deal on a new pair of Sierra Designs Microlight Windpants and I will be adding ankle zips or an ankle velcro closure as a project in the next month or 2. Hope to film it and offer the video as a YouTube or Vimeo segment. I'll post once the project & video are complete.
