I don't know about others but jerseys with full length zippers are awesome. When I wear an old jersey with the short zipper I end up cursing myself for purchasing it. I don't understand why so many jerseys (especially team replica jerseys) still utilize 6" zippers. Is it just me or do others look for jerseys with full length zippers?
I'm with you. At least 12" zippers should be mandatory.boy nigel

As much as I love my Tour de France ONCE jersey (grey one) and its great fit, it only has a short zipper (prob. 6"). I'm in the process of ordering a jersey with a 16" zipper (which, on me, constitutes virtually a full-length zip-down). Being a big sweater, I require a lot of zipper on medium to hot days. (Hell, I even sweat a good deal in the winter!)

Long zippers rule. Nothing like temperature regulation on the bike.

Absolutely. Full length zippers are the best. nmKen56

On long hot climbs, I will occasionally unzip my full-zip jersey all the way and let the jersey flap in the breeze, exposing the front of my bibshorts and my Un-Dee-Shirt. I'm sure nobody in his or her right mind wants to see me in this condition, but damn it feels so much better than being zipped up.

I recently received a World Cycling Production catalog. I would consider them to be high end. Why do most of their team replica jerseys have the cheesey 6" zippers? 6" zippers are useless. I would think that a catalog that also has pricey bikes would have best innovations in jersey design. When is the last time you saw a pro rider with a 6" jersey?
