  1. Many people understand the concept of how this works. Unfortunately, many two way zippers don't zip up with as much ease as some of these videos describe. The biggest problem is the ease of misalignment of the upper and lower zippers when the wearer is wearing the jacket. I have a parka that I love but the zipper constantly drives me batty. I understand how it works, but you really need to spend time ensuring that both upper and lower zippers are perfectly aligned – otherwise even if it looks like it, the zip will get stuck on the upper zipper and now you are having to pull it apart and try again. The key is to get it align properly so when zipped you feel that click. However, for at least two brand new parkas/coats I have had, it is the same problem of both zippers being very difficult to align when I am wearing the coat. When it is on a bed flat, it is easy to do.

  2. Thank u so much mate i just bought this nike jacket and i was confused 🤣😂😂🤣🤣😂

  3. This actually helped. Thank you kind YouTube man

  4. appreciate it help me

  5. Hell yeah believe me easier to take a piss outside thank you double zipper 😊👍

  6. Thanks. Huge help.

  7. My partner complained that the zip on the new jacket was faulty. Spent 5 minutes looking at jackets to find that it was two-way zip. Then used YouTube to find this video and how to use it. YouTube is great.

  8. But how do I fix it once I mess it up and it's stuck? I got a nice jacket and it has this so I never wore it.

  9. Thank you

  10. Dude thank you so much for making this video! I feel like an absolute imbecile. I spent 15 minutes trying to figure this thing out. I’m a civil engineer😔. How pathetic and embarrassing. So freaking simple🤙

  11. Thanks

  12. Thank you so much! 😊

  13. Thanks for the information!

  14. How can you tell the size of a zipper, I need a replacement.

  15. thx, you help me😁👍

  16. Thanks man, i was fuming over here

  17. I've owned my parka for over a year now and didn't realize I even had a 2nd on that side…lol…now I feel dumb. finally got curious if I was doing something wrong…yay now I can finally wear this parka I love.

  18. I can’t get mine unzipped again, like I can’t open the jacket where the zipper isn’t connected to the other side

  19. Just one more thing to aggravate. As an oldster I have great difficulty lining up the two zips, especially on a longer coat. The benefits of this idea are outweighed by the drawbacks. I would buy coats with one zip only but these are getting harder and harder to find. It shows how bad an idea they are when you have to find a tutorial to work out how to zip up a jacket.

  20. Thank you for helping me not break off the entire bottom zipper lol

  21. Thank you for the video
    I just bought a sweater yesterday and don't know how to use its dual sided zipper
    Thanks a lot

    Thanks man🙏

  22. Thanx a ton !

    Oiling the slider just a little bit helped, as the zipper wouldn't go down all the way through in the beginning.

  25. How do I unzip it fully

  26. I literally just almost returned the jacket bc I thought the zipper was broken. I'm an engineer for God's sake! I didn't realize it was SUPPOSED to do that… (come open when I leaned over).

  27. I hate 2 zippers it's so difficult to put the zip in and take it out, it's a real pain. I have left my coat open once I was soo frustrated.

  28. Ya. . Jeez .. first damn time I try that on my expensive parka. U guessed it.. it f'd my zipper up.. jammed up.
    Why ??

  29. This is actually helped alot u just got stright to the point

    Thank you. It was really confusing to get used to the two way zipper.

  34. Unlike most here it seems, I've had zero issues understanding how and what, however I thought there might be more uses for such a zipper than simply being able to open it up from the bottom.

  35. This actually helped me✌🏻 thanks so much


  37. i’ve been feeling like an idiot for the last 10 minutes trying to figure out my under armour jacket, thank you

  38. Two-way zippers serve little to no useful purpose and more often than not create problems with zipper alignment and zipper guide issues. Most of the time the manufacturers use very poor material and design in the guided side of the zipper ( the left hand side ), which becomes damaged or frayed very quickly. They also cheap out on the pull or receiver side of the zipper, causing poor alignment situations resulting in the aforementioned damage and fraying and misalignment of the zipper teeth. For as long as we have incorporated zippers into our clothing, you would think this would be a mastered technique by now, but all manufacturers know that since few people will seek out someone to replace a zipper when it fails, that means more clothing sales, which means you buy their items over and over again. Two-way zippers were largely sold to us as a way convenient way to access our pockets without have to completely open or remove our coats and to also make sitting down easier, especially in a vehicle. Personally I have never used the bottom zipper to access a pocket nor have I ever open the bottom of my coat to sit down. If you need to open the bottom of you coat for venting purposes, then you probably wore the wrong coat or too much clothing to begin with.

  39. This definitely helped me with my Tracksuit jacket, Thank you Pal❤

  40. I recently exchanged the product..bcz I thought it's defect 😅 and again got the same product

  41. thank u man im new to niketechs

  42. I have brand new jacket with 2 way zipper. I can't get it apart to try on. You show it unzipped and not how to get it undone. None of you show this!!!

  43. Thank you so much, I was about to give up.
