Zip Hers

Zip Hers


I'm one hiking-addicted outdoor enthusiast and enjoy hours if not days/weeks on the trails. And what I dread the most is not the difficulty of the hike or the time it will take me to reach the summit.

I dread having to search for a secluded place to go potty with no skin-irritating plant life ( I see you poison ivy) or insects in the vicinity and especially in areas with little to no foliage.

Most of the places I visit rarely are there restrooms available. But, when you gotta go, you gotta go. What's a girl to do?

So when Debbie of Zip Hers, asked me to test the Trailblazer 2.0 Pant, the full crotch zipper design pants that makes going potty outdoors easier, I jumped at the chance to try them on my hiking trip to the Guadalupe Mountains and Big Bend National Parks.

I did have my reservations, designed to be worn sans undergarments, and I wondered about comfort and irritation of delicate areas.

After hiking the Guadalupe Peak Trail, a 3000' elevation gain 8 miles hike with a short scramble to the summit, I was absolutely amazed at how comfortable these pants are.

Then, heading to Big Bend National Park, I really put them to the test, scrambling the Grapevine Trail to Balanced Rock, hiking to the summit of Lost Mines, and traversing the Rio Grande River in the Santa Elena Canyon. And I can say Zip Hers is now my favorite trail pant.

Not only are they comfortable enough to spend hours hiking the many diverse landscapes the national parks have to offer, but I also love the feel of the fabric.

The material isn't noisy like some of the other water-resistant fabrics are, although after soaking in the hot springs and walking in the waste-deep waters of the Rio Grande, they did have a slight swishing sound.

But by the time we made it back to the car, my pants were almost dry, the swishing noise had subsided, and ready for another adventure.

An additional feature of the pants I like is the side cargo pocket is large enough to hold my phone.

And I can't get over the absolute ease and discretion at going potty on the trail. No more searching for that elusive secluded area so very very very far off-trail.

These pants are a game-changer in women's hiking apparel. I spent 4 days hiking in these pants and I recommend them highly. ZipHers is an outstanding company with an exceptional product.
I have now sent a few more emails about the shipping label not being included in your email and haven't heard back again.
Kudos to the creators of the ZipHers athletic wear. My loving and thoughtful husband purchased several pairs for Christmas. I have had 7 knee surgeries on my left knee; 3 surgeries on my right knee. Presently, I’m recovering from a ruptured Achilles’ tendon, with no weight bearing and on a knee scooter. Not having to fight with traditional shorts in the restroom is a blessing. ZipHers are classy enough to be worn with a dress shirt, blazer, and a pair of loafers.
Debbie Mercer’s customer service is exceptional.
Has anyone ordered from this company? I ordered on the 16th and still haven’t gotten any kind of order confirmation or response.
Hello, the description for the "plus" size full length tights indicates they are "light weight". Does that mean they are see-thru? or are these a heavy enough material that people aren't going to be able to see through them like some tights are. thanks! I love the outdoors, camping, hiking, kayaking, but I feel so limited due to not wanting to drop my drawers to my ankles! I so need some Zip Hers!
This has started a conversation in the house. After you unzip do you pull your un**es off to the side? Are they special crotchless type? I get the feeling You have to hold a tree with your left hand for balance, pull your un**es with your right. There is no way your sticking your hand in the trail mix after that. I need more information.
The weather's getting cooler, can't wait to be able to get outside more and wear my new Zip Hers!
I Walked the Camino Frances in 2015 and I knew then I wanted an 18” Zipper to replace the Seam from the bottom of my Waistband, Down my Crotch and up the Back.
- I just UnZip, Move my Pants & Un**es over, P*e and Zip back up. 👍😉
- In 2017 a Camiga made me 2 pairs and it made my 3rd, 4th, 5th Caminos soooooo much easier!!
-I recently learned of and I am thrilled I don’t have to make them myself and they have a number of styles.
- I ordered 2 pairs and I loooooooveeeeeee them!!!
-They are soft, snug but not too snug, stretchy and easy to UnZip and Zip.
-My new Walking, Hiking, Jogging, Biking, EVERYthing stretchy Exercise Pants!!
- m’I!!! 💞💝👍

I love Ziphers. I’m not out doorsy or athletic but I work a lot of racing events in the Houston area. These are perfect when I need to run to the potty and I don’t have a lot of time. Super easy to unzip, zip up and off I go! They are incredibly comfortable even for just lounging around.
