“It’s kind of hard to imagine life without the zipper. Think about just a simple pair of jeans. Yeah, buttons always seem like such a great idea when you are trying a new pair of button jeans in the dressing room but then two months after buying this button-crotch enclosed pair of jeans and you are trying to figure out what in the world you were thinking. Now you don’t just use zippers on jeans, they also can be found on: coats, jackets, backpacks, purses, tents, sleeping bags, suitcases and can even be found on simple plastic Ziploc bags to more specialty clothing like spacesuits, hazmat suits, and scuba diving dry suits. But the creation of the zipper was not just one invention, but a long and drawn out process.”
