I picked up this Eastman Windward last year but shortly after it arrived the zip just gave up the ghost. Damn no matter what, I could not get the zip to stay together. So on December 3rd I contacted Damon at Johnson Leather and we decided to up the Zip grade to a #8 zip instead of a #5 for increased strength and ease of connectivity. Damon didn't have a zip on hand long enough or the right color so he ordered one with neither of us knowing when it would arrive. Less than a week later the zip arrived and I think they turned this puppy immediately because it arrived today. Johnson Leather is awesome!! Great Job Guys!!
