Ziplongs® is a pair of long-johns that is designed be worn all year 'round, on any adventure. That way we can try to challenge the way we consume clothing, and encourage people to buy less. The clothing we do buy should also be able to be worn on any occasion. So whether it will be worn playing in the school yard or relaxing in front of the fireplace, you don't need more than one pair of long-johns.

We were told for many years that a Ziplongs® for children would be genius, and many customers asked us to make one. We were convinced, so we developed a version for kids and expected instant success.

This expectation turned out to be very wrong. Two years after launch, we had still only sold around 100 Ziplongs® kids. The rest (close to 400 products), were still at our warehouse. What to do?

We are generally against discounts, and we never have sales to get rid of products that are "outdated". But in this case, it is clear that we won't continue to produce this product, and the environmental damage is already done. Letting the products gather dust at our warehouse costs us a substantial amount of capital.

It costs us 205 NOK (ex. taxes) to make a Ziplongs® kids. Originally, we sold them for 400 NOK (inc. taxes). We have now decided to cut the price to 260 NOK (26 Euro). Really, this means we lose a little bit of money, but it's better that people use the product than the alternative. We now hope that this will contribute to many more children being able to play in our Ziplongs®!

Dressing with Ziplongs® is dressing in a new way.
To help you find which zipper go together we have developed a set of color codes:
1. Different zip-color for each leg to easily distinguish left from right.
2. Inside waist seam in different color to distinguish up from down.

Is the zipper uncomfortable? That is a question we get asked all the time. Luckily, owners of Ziplongs® unanimously agree; once in motion you won’t feel the difference between a Ziplongs® and regular long underwear. The hard parts of the zippers are padded, the rest is constructed so that no plastic from the zipper is touching your skin.
