    Hello inmates!
    I decided on a Vanson MK II jacket and it is being shipped to me. I was also keeping an eye out for pants to complement the jacket for longer rides and I was wondering if anyone knows how proprietary Vanson's three-way zip. Should I stick with Vanson's pants or is it possible to explore an alternative pant that will connect to the jacket?

    Welcome.
    Find the pants you want to wear.
    Mos garmets have a zipper attachment.
    If the Zippers don't match it should very cheap to have a seamstress create a
    zipper adapter.

    I forget if it's the jacket or pants that come with free zippers you can sew into another brand of garments.

    Usually the jacket has one half of the zip sewn to it and the other half is zipped to it. That half is removable and tossed aside when wearing pants or you can sew it to your pants of choice.

    Thanks! I appreciate the responses. I am not wild about Vanson's current pants offerings and it's good to know I can look elsewhere without fear of regret.

    now that I thought about it.

    my pants came with the other half of the zippers too.

    my vanson jackets are the older version with one zipper in back. my pants are newer with 3 part zippers.
