Every bag deserves a high quality zipper. There is nothing worse than a zipper that runs poorly and uneven. In every KONTAINER we use Excella zippers from the Japanese company YKK.
Have you looked at the zip puller of your jeans recently? There is a good chance it says YKK. Are you curious to know why? Check out this little funny video.
Excella is a high-end collection within YKK. It is not only incredible durable but also beautiful aesthetic wise (says the nerdy-nerdy ones. We know that the majority don’t give it much thought. So don’t worry, you’re not alone). Another nerdy detail. Every teeth on an Excella zip is polished to avoid sharp edges. Meaning no scratches on hands or pulling threads on clothes.
From the very beginning we have sticked to using YKK Excella zippers. Inside and outside. Not once have we received a complaint about a broken zip. This actually says it all. Don’t be afraid to stuff your Kontainer too much. It might not look pretty, but the zipper will do you proud.
