Just got a JACKET! Half way there! Question tho.

I just picked up a Hein-Geireke jacket, has the sexy speed hump and everything Half way to getting my gear for the track!

But I have a question, There are 2 zippers, a full circumfrence, and a 10 inch, im looking for a pair of pants that will zip up to theese, I havent had any luck finding the same brand/kind to match the jacket, so im just basically looking for anything.

Will ANY pants zip up to theese, using the full-circumfrence zipper, assuming I find the right size to match the height of the jacket?

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

Pretty much, yeah. The problems you will run into are: the full circumference length on the jacket and pants might be different. This isn't a big deal though... Mine is off by about 2 inches but it doesn't really matter.

The big thing to look out for is, watch whether the zipper zips clockwise or counterclockwise. If you get pants that zip the other direction then they definately won't match up.

dude you find some "pants" (lol we are talking leathers right? :0 ) that fit and you like for a good price, buy them, dont worry about the zipper, you can take it to the local taylor (usually attached to a cleaners) and have them add a zipper to them. or you could keep searching

Jim is right, don't worry about the zipper, just take it to a tailors and have them put on some zippers for you. Most brands' zippers don't match other brands'... ie Alpinestars & Joe Rocket zippers won't mesh.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
