Title: Front or back zip?
Post by: jeffbhall on September 26, 2018, 07:19:39 PM
I've only had front zips, but I'm looking at the new Patagucci back zips...does anyone have a strong opinion either way?

i guess the general consensus is winter suits should be front.  the idea is less water seepage. 


it really doesnt matter for anything less than a winter suit.

Just one opinion:


I recently got my first backzip since the 90's. It doesn't flush much. I still prefer to get in and out of the front zip. Almost feels throwback to reach around and grab the cord to zipper. I often wear my xcel over the gucci.
