    Product Alert! Pearl Izumi Amfib line.

    this wasnt sent out by the company but something that happened to me.

    i have had the zipper pull on 3 different pearl izumi amfib products snap right off while i was zipping them up. the first was a pair of their amfib booties. i sent the pair back and nashbar was very friendly and help full in setting me up with a replacement. while waiting for it though the zipper pull on my pearl amfib tights snapped off. then after a week or so of using the new booties one of the pullies snapped on those as well!

    the product itself is great but pearl should do something about their zippers. i was using them with care after the first one went only to find they are poor quality. thankfully, i have a cure...,.

    take a paperclip and insert one end into the slot where the zipper snapped (i will post pics later in thread). twist the paperclip back to normal size and bag! a new zipper pull!

    hope this is helpfull

    i have 2 pairs of amphib tights and i've worn them 30 miles a day, 5 days a week, 4 months a year, for 2 years now and the worst thats happened is they're a bit worn out in the thigh and crotch.

    amphib booties didnt get quiet as much usage, but i've found them rock solid so far as well.

    Your "" key is kida fuky too, huh?
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
