Re: Do You Zipper the Jacket to the Pants?

I put them on and then zip them together. It's not all that difficult after you do it a couple times...and really handy to be able to do it without a great deal of effort. [For us gals, it really makes those quick potty stops pretty interesting if you don't take them apart. ]

If they are zipped together, what's the easiest way to put them on? Like coveralls?

I put them on pre-zipped, Daboo. Although I am capable of zipping behing my back, I find it quicker for me to pre-zip them. I also zip-tie the zipper so it doesn't creep open. Now that is something I couldn't do with them on!

I only zip on my winter set because I don't have summer mesh pants. Probably would zip them if I did have them.

Haven't worn my winter gear on the Burg' yet, though. So, I don't know about the butt-rest making the zipper uncomfortable. But, now that I think about it, I bet it will... Crap.

Re: Do You Zipper the Jacket to the Pants?

I zipper mine together after I put them on. I put them together for a couple of reasons, and one being, if you go down, the jacket don't go up.

NO ZIPPERS for me, a one piece body suit works nicely. It would be impossible for me to zipper the top and bottom together while I was wearing it, I would have to zip it together before I put it on, so why not save all the hassle and go with a one piece suit? If I don't want to wear the body suit, I just wear my pants and jacket, plain and simple. I usually only wear the body suit in cold weather.

With my current setup (I use the KLÍM Badlands Pro jacket, Latitude Pants)I will lay out the jacket and pants on a chair or such and then zip them together.

At that point I slide myself into the pants and while I am sitting down will then throw the jacket over myself and voila full zipped body protection.

This really does help out in several ways as the jacket doesn't slide up and the rain can flow off better and just like was mentioned in the event of a "slide" the jacket and pants stay together.

As time goes on I probably will get better at zipping them up if I don't have the ability to sit down when putting them on. I haven't used the combination together but more than acouple of times.
