Zipper durability is the most important element of your framebag. We understand first-hand the challenges of a busted zipper while on a long journey and this experience drives our commitment to build your framebags with the best zippers on the market. We have rigorously tested almost a dozen different zipper types which includes not just different zipper manufactures, but also different styles of zipper sliders, teeth, and tape. Those tests resulted in the zippers we use today which include YKK molded zippers for our Mudlust series and custom zippers from Europe for our Fiber Flight series.
Our Mudlust series set the standard for zipper durability while our Fiber Flight zippers match that durability while having the lowest force to open/close (i.e., smoothness, see graph below) and offer the highest level of water-resistance for a non-dry bag style zipper. These Fiber Flight zippers are custom made for Rockgeist which include specific branded colors seen here. If you would like to upgrade your Mudlust framebag to included these Fiber Flight zippers please select your color here.
