I would like to know about the quality / durability of the Maxpedition Organizers zips.
Over several years I have worn out several fanny bags' zips. Normally the zip last but not the moving "clasp". I have bought two genuine leather bags for a much higher price but the first one failed with the zip. The clasp worn through. I bought it from a flea market and I guess the maker used what material was locally available. Stainless steel clasps are not available here in ZA. I have a separate pocket in the fanny bag that I use to store my three sets of keys, and this is the zip that I open the most.
In my opinion the best type of zips is type that they use on a trouser fly. I have almost never worn out a fly zip.
I can make my own organizers, but my problem still lies in getting a durable zip. I have thought about the plastic thinner wet suit type of zips, but I do not have experience with them. So I am thinking of rather buying the organizer complete, but How long will the zip last if I open the zip several times a day?
