Waterproof Zipper

Post by Richard H on 1st November 2009, 21:11

From www.webbikeworld.com/Motorcycle-news/2009/gore-lockout/ :

"October 2009 - The Gore-Tex brand is familiar to motorcyclists worldwide, and the company has now developed a new product that has the potential to revolutionize the common zipper closure for motorcycle garments. Called the Gore "Lockout", this "closure system" provides a simple, easy to use and durably waterproof closure for motorcycle garments.

Where did the idea for the Lockout system come from?
Gore took the right approach on this, and asked customers what they expected from a closure!

From a motorcyclist's point of view, the features included criteria like:
* Easy to open and close, even when wearing gloves.
* Reliability and durability in all situations.
* Smooth fit of the two closure elements.
* Durably waterproof in all types of weather conditions.
* Weatherproof zipper, even in extreme conditions (wind, cold, heat).
* Reliable closure which does not catch or jam.
* No involuntary opening. "

What it looks like:

I would think that "It must be cheap" was on that list, but they took it off after much deliberation Smile
