Adding Pit Zips to a Montane Hydra-Lite Smock? on 09/04/2007 19:46:21 MDT Print View

Where can I get lightweight small zippers to use as pit zips? I want to get a pair to install on a Montane Hydra-Lite Smock to greatly assist in venting.

I used the #3 continuous waterproof zipper from thru-hiker.com for a pair of epic rain pants. I have been happy with the zippers so far. #3 zippers are probably the smallest zipper you would want to use on clothing. Using a continuous zippers vs. a premade zipper was not as hard as I thought it would be. Plus Ayce's instructions, for assembeling the zipper, on his website are very easy to follow.
