New zippers

Every exterior zipper on the bag has been redesigned. We're told zipper failure is the most common 'end of life' point for most PD bags, so the brand decided to create a better zipper. To do this, they partnered with company Zoom zippers to develop the proprietary 'UltraZip'.

According the Peak Design, 'UltraZips use Ultra-High Molecular-Weight Thermoplastic thread to bind the zipper coil to fabric tape. This increases zipper strength 20x compared to standard, out of the box zippers from YKK.'

Having dealt with blown zippers on first generation Peak Design bags, we really appreciate the effort the brand has put into solving this all-too-common problem. Less blown zippers are good for everyone: the customer (less annoyance), the brand (less repairs) and the environment (less bags that could ultimately end up in the trash).
