Mending is better than ending: if your zip has fended off one too many gale force gusts then our Zip Slider Replacement is for you. Our expert Repair Heroes are on hand to replace most zip sliders be they on jackets, tents or rucksacks. If we can source it, we can replace the zip slider on any brand. Sometimes we use sliders from recycled jackets.
Advice from our Repair Heroes
"You can tell that you need a new zip slider if the teeth and zip ends look in good condition but the zip isn't zipping together as it should. If there's any damage to the zip teeth, fabric or retainer it's more likely that you'll need a Full Zip Replacement.
It helps us repair your kit more quickly if you can let us know specifics about what kind of zip slider you're after. For example, do you want a close match, a fun new colour or have any special requests? Just pop a note in with your order."

Sustainability and Product Care
Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intensity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
