Aquaguard® Waterproof Zippers

Weatherproof closures

waterproof zippers

Zippers are an essential element of any garment’s performance. They have to be easy to use; whether it is a gloved hand or in wind-driven icy conditions. And, all the while maintaining flexibility, durability and most of all keeping inclement weather conditions at bay. Obermeyer has been a partner with YKK® for over 50 years. In the early 2000's water repellent zippers came into their own. We use the YKK® AquaGuard® Water Repellent Zippers – a waterproof polyurethane-coated zipper with smooth gliding characteristics, flexibility for garment use, and proven durability to withstand wear and pressure.
