Ziplongs® microfleece (Men)

The neverending dilemma of all active outdoor people: Should I wear Long Johns today, or will it be too warm? With Ziplongs®, you don’t have to choose.

With Ziplongs you don’t have to choose between being too cold or too warm. In the morning, dress right with Ziplongs. When the sun is up and the hill is steep, it just takes a second to stop and change. Voilà: temperature regulation on-the-go. If you stop for a break, throw ‘em back on – cozy and dry.

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

Product weight: Ziplongs® microfleece 3/4 men’s size medium: about 170 grams.

Material: “Technical waffle” material from Italian Pontetorto. Material weight: 200 gr/M.  96% polyester and 4% elastane give optimal wicking capabilities and durability. The waffle structure makes sure the material breathes and isolates well.

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.
PS: Check crotch print for additional user directions.

 

Made in Europe: We manufacture our products in Lithuania. We do this to ensure proximity and quality, as well as to reduce our carbon footprint. In addition to this every component of our wool products are from European manufactures. (Except the raw wool that Utenos imports from New Zealand and Australia) European production is not cheap, but you’ll get a product with less logged travel miles and long durability. Please wear until worn out.

 

The Ziplongs has a wide area of use:

– Alpine touring
– Ice climbing
– Mountain and cross-country expeditions
– Glacier travel
– X-country skiing
– Hiking
– Sailing
– Commuting.

That is: anything that gets you out in the cold.

First of all: Once you receive your Ziplongs, give yourself a chance to try getting them on and off at home before you head out. Getting Ziplongs on for the first time takes a little finesse. Read more about the color codes under technical details.

Better ventilation (see video): Ziplongs offers an opportunity to customise your ventilation to your choosing. If your pants have zippers, open the zippers of the pants and the Ziplongs and you will have fresh breeze directly on your skin. If you want more ventilation, just tuck the Ziplongs in or remove completely. Once it gets cold; zip up!

 

If you use Ziplongs with 3/4 length , make sure you also wear tall socks. That ensures full comfort and no risk of a cold gap between the Ziplongs and the (short) sock.

For the really cold days, Ziplongs also works great between your underwear and hard shell as a midlayer.

Should I choose 3/4 or full length? The first advantage with 3/4 length is that it matches much better with your ski boots, hunting boots, and other tall boots. You just need to match them with tall socks. 3/4-length Ziplongs are also easier to get on and off, because you only have to zip down to the calf. Full-length Ziplongs, on the other hand, ensure there’s no gap of bare skin if you prefer to wear short socks and boots.

Finally, a word on our philosophy: People often think that being warm is all about having enough clothes on. That is only half the truth. If your baselayer’s not dry, you’ll get cold no matter how many layers you put on. That’s why the most important aspect of being warm is to be dry. And that’s what Zipwear is all about. Remove your Ziplongs before you start to sweat, and put it back on when you get cold. Or, have two Ziplongs. Either way you will be dry, comfortable and safer out in the cold with your Zipwear.

- ¾ length or full length? -

The first advantage with ¾ length is that it matches much better with your ski boots, hunting boots, and other tall boots. ¾ length Ziplongs® are also easier to get on and off, because you only have to zip down to the calf. Full-length Ziplongs®, on the other hand, ensure there’s no gap of bare skin if you prefer to wear short socks and boots.

- Wool or microfleece? -

Wool has the unique property that it isolates and warms when wet. The woolen Ziplongs® also smells less than the microfleece, thanks to the "self-rinsing" effect. The microfleece Ziplongs® dries faster and breathes better than the woolen one. It's also more durable, and about 100g lighter. Insulation of the two is more or less the same.
