replace zipper on backpack

I have a heavy duty zipper (water proof) on my backpack that broke.  Is there someone in the local area that can repair it? (Raleigh)

Thanks

Can you possibly post a photo of the offending malfunction? We need to see if it’s a zipper fastener or slide or just the material, if it’s the material you may have a major issue, good luck

@redbeardroaming I doubt there is a local repair shop that could repair a waterproof zipper, but I would send a photo to rainy pass repair (https://rainypass.com/) and they can give you an idea if it’s repairable. They aren’t cheap, but they do great work. Hope this helps.

Have you contacted the backpack manufacturer to ask if the broken zipper is covered by their warranty?

Even if not, they may offer a repair service.

Check with local outfits that do marine upholstery, boat covers, etc.

I would check with the manufacturer first, though. It may be under warranty, and even if it isn't they may be willing to sell you a matching zipper.
