Simple fix, cut the zipper off your wife's coat or jacket and put it on your jacket. Just cut the top part of the zipper off and slide the new one on. Put your old one on her jacket, she will never know.
It works.

Have you done this? My wife would kill me if I done that. Plus my rain jacket is $400 jacket, I think I want a pro to fix it, but the thought of cutting zipper off wife's jacket for hunting is hilarious!! clap

My buddy did this exact thing a few days ago and it worked, he told me about it today while hunting in the rain, mine would no longer work so I had to use the snap buttons to close my jacket. I will do the same repair on mine tomorrow since the rain does not appear to be stopping anytime soon.
On another note, I talked with a Game Warden today with a mud rig, he said they have two now, very interesting.

Did it really cost $400? If that's the case take it to a tailor or shoe repair place.

Guy only deals in Cabelas gear so he can take it back and get a new one every year. No way they sell a $400 jacket

Of course the season may be over by the time you get its back but it is a $400 jacket

I got a plastic poncho you can borrow while you wait

I was rounding up. grin With tax it was damn near $400. Bought it 2012 I think, sure wish they had their old return policy, I would most definitely be taking it back to get a new one.

I'll get it fixed over the split.

Okay Guy, we do not want this to be another 20 page thread about how to fix your motor so I am going to make this as simple as possible for you.
Please do not over evaluate the broken zipper issue.

I fixed my jacket this morning, took all of 1 minute, more than likely the zipper has a broken or worn down point. Mine is working like a charm again, I am dry. smile
Step by step directions:
1.Go buy a new zipper or do like I did and find an old jacket and remove the zipper.
2.At the top of your zipper track, by your neck, cut a slit above the last piece and slide the zipper off.
3.Slide the new zipper on and your done.

No need to take it somewhere and much easier than tuning your carb. Let me know how it works out. cheers

Now if I could just find a way to get my new trim unit delivered today so I can repair the damage I caused the other day I would be in business to end the split in my boat. Oh well, will just have to bum another ride like I have been doing the last couple of days.

Ha ha 20 pages. I think my teeth are messed up, not the actual zipper. But I might try that.
