    Is anyone else having trouble with the zipper assembly just coming apart? This last week will be a total of 3 where the zipper mechanism just comes apart while zipping it to take out weights. Scubapro`s answer is to send it in for warranty. Wondering if some dabs of super glue on the parts that come apart will help?

    The zippers are a bit fragile. I try to keep them clean, well lubricated, and handle them with kid gloves.

    I've had Scubapro pockets for many, many years and have not had problems. I often rinse them only at the end of a trip.

    I am not sure about quality but the lack of attention to details is what annoys me the most. Scubapro designed one pouch for both sides so one of them is upside down.
    One pouch has the zipper facing upwards and the other one is facing downwards.

    Exact thing happened on a Hydros weight pocket 2 weeks ago. Hydros less than 30 days old.

    Is this just an OCD thing or is there a reason why both sides should not be the same? Should zipper be facing up or down?

    They should be the same. Both zippers facing up or down for consistency. Scubapro was lazy.

    MY SP belt has large flaps with velcro... did not know they made one with zippers. Zippers buildup calcium and salt and stick... WTH.

    I have had these same pouches for many years and hundreds of dives.

    I hope the was just a fluke production run and not a decline in product quality.
