I have a Wilderness Experience sleeping bag that needs a new zipper. It is a Solo model, and has a YKK zipper. I believe I bought this bag from REI about 40 years ago.
I have looked at REI's repair suggestions and I don't think the problem is in the slide. I think the plastic zipper pieces are worn.
What is the best way to go about having the zipper replaced. I can sew (I still have and use my Frostline bag that I sewed from their kit), but I think at this point, I would like to have a professional replace this zipper. If REI replaces zippers, should I send it to them, or should I simply find a local tailor and have them replace it. I'm assuming I can find a replacement from YKK.
