Spring is here and with the warmer temperatures, growing leaves, and singing frogs, I find myself wanting to go camping. Camping is always such fun with the fishing, exploring, and lack of alarm clocks. However, it often leads to forgotten, missing, or worse, broken, equipment. One of my biggest pet peeves is having zippers that don’t work properly on the tent or the sleeping bags. I like for things to close up properly and I’ve had to force the zippers on many occasions. Of course, forcing things leads to breakage, and a broken tent zipper while camping is not my idea of fun. Fortunately, there’s a quick and handy fix available in the form of FixnZip.
FixnZip is a zipper repair kit that you can easily stow in a small space and have with you when you need it the most. With easy to follow instructions printed on the inside of the label for each package, and with an intuitive design, it’s simple to attach the FixnZip and continue on your way.
The solution appeals to me since I am by nature quite lazy. I like to have a simple fix kicking around, and in this case I like that I don’t have to sew a new zipper in, drop it off for repair, or try to jimmy-rig something. I eagerly accepted this product for a review because I thought I would like to keep it in the camping kit, but I quickly realized that there were many other uses for it. I’ve broken zippers on jeans and jackets and never gotten around to getting them repaired, but with the FixnZip I can continue to use them.
Being a reusable item is another bonus. You can attach it to a broken zipper, use it for awhile, remove it when you no longer need it, and use it elsewhere.
The FixnZip is available in different sizes, which is an important note to remember. I was hoping to try my review piece on a jacket with a busted zipper, but quickly realized that the teeth on the jacket zipper were too big for the size I had. If you buy one if these with an item in mind, make sure to get the proper size.
Outdoors enthusiasts know that it is best to be prepared for anything while adventuring. FixnZip is a great little solution to pack away for those unexpected mishaps along the way, making your day just that much easier.
