If you got a Finisher jacket, I have a quick question.
Mine arrived today and I am wondering if mine is possibly a women's.
The reason I ask is that every jacket I have ever owned has the front zipper on the right when you put it on. You insert the left side into the zipper and then pull the zipper up on the right.
My jacket is the opposite. The zipper is on the left, which I think is traditional for women's garments.
If you would take a second and let me know, I would love some feedback before I call K Swiss on Monday.
Thanks so much!
Remember, Kona is being played on NBC today at 4;30 PM!
Hope you all are well!
I don't have mine with me right now, but it would not surprise me if it does zip in reverse. I also have two IM hoodies that I got in the men's section at the IM store on two different occasions (IMFL and IMAugusta 70.3) and both of them zip like a women's jacket. I will post again when I get home this afternoon and let you know.
Thanks, Andy! I will look to hear what you find. kind of weird, don"t you think? BTW, great blog, I read it all!
I got the women's jacket on location, and my zipper is on the right. That may not help until you hear back from others who got the men's jacket, though... I would think the fit would be different, too. Does the one you got seem to be more tailored to come in at the waist or anything? Well, good luck!
(On another note, the zipper on one of my pockets came off the first time or two I wore it. Pretty disappointed. Shouldn't a $150 jacket hold up better than that?!?)
Thanks, Jenn. So strange. And yes, ridiculous that a zipper would break! I also do not feel great about a $150 jacket with a weird zipper! Been zipping up the same way 37 years-cannot change now! They may as well have stolen my Garmin and changed my settings all around! LOL!
Chris - I bought the men's finisher's jacket on-site and the zipper was on the "wrong side" as I and used to as well. But I think that is just the way those types of jackets are. It's funny but my Multisport Club ordered some jackets and had a few extra and I decided not to get one because i thought it was a girls jacket because of the zipper. So long story short, you got the correct one, they are all like that. i remembered checking others on the rack at the FLIM as well. Hope this helps....

Wear the jacket with pride!!! You earned it!!!
