    if the metal zip part is still conected you can use a papper clip as the pully to zipper it.. thats what i did last winter. worked fine

    A stainless steel key chain ring or something of the like that's stainless and a shoe lace.. If that don't work- duck tape usually does the trick

    Send it back under warranty! Or a local luggage repair place.. Or if that does not work- duck tape... Have you tried that yet?

    What about a fabric or craft store? Or just resort to duck tape

    Had the same thing happen to a wetsuit of mine that was about 3-4 years old I just waited until mid-summer, mailed it to the company (in my case Matuse) and they fixed it (really well I might add) and mailed it back.

    Based on my experiences with Xcel, they will do the same thing even if it's out of warranty if you just send it to them.

    Rip curl completely stitched my hood back on to a four year old suit for free. I just paid shipping - one way.

    How bout a hot chick giving you a hand with the zipper? Beats having to ship it back and wait for a replacement suit. Each time you got out of the water you could act all surprised that you are stuck, and that gives you an opening to strike up a conversation with the hot girl who stole all your set waves. Hey, I'm married, but I am a first class wing man. Just ask all my buds. If only they would listen.
