How to use a 2-way Zip

The 2-way zip is a popular feature of coats in our Country, Outdoor, Xtreme Series and Kids collections. From time to time we are asked questions about its use and the general purpose of it. We decided to put together this helpful post to provide a few hints and tips describing how to use it and why we think it's such a great feature. 

What is the purpose of a 2-way zip?

2-way zips are designed to open from the bottom of the zip as well as from the top. This is to give you more room at the hem of the coat so you will be more comfortable when you are sitting down. It is also ideal for just letting in some air or retrieving something from a pocket underneath without having to undo the whole zip.

How do I use my 2-way zip?

Below is a simple diagram to help you use your 2-way zip correctly. You just need to make sure that both parts of the zipper are firmly seated at the bottom before inserting the free zip edge into both, then pull the top slider upwards while holding the bottom slider firmly in place to zip up the coat. You can then easily pull the bottom slider up to open the coat from the bottom.

If there is anything else you would like to know about 2-way zips, just drop us a message on any of our social media sites.
