Unused zips at the bottom of jackets...

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Grunge, May 23, 2006.

  1. What are they for.
    I just got my brand spanking new shift leather jacket, and noticed there are 2 zipers there, one short one long, but not attached to anything.....
    Strange....

  2. Possibly part of a 2 piece suit that would zip together?
    And the other for an inner lining, or also a 2nd zip of a 2piece?

  3. different zips for different types of pants.

    Generally larger zip for leather pants and smaller for textile.

    Anyway that's what they told me whern I asked at the shop.

  5. Normally 1 for the 8inch zip for trousers and the larger one for attaching to a 2 piece suit. Some may come with the bottom half of the zip so it can be zipped onto existing pants. and don't a;ways assume that they will fit different styles, sizes or brands of pants eg alpinestar 8 inch and joe rocket 8 inch. etc
