Yeah, that’s right. I’d rather bust out the needle and spool — mangled knuckles and all — and suture up a saddlepack zipper that’s ripped free rather than plunk down the $14.95 for a new one. Some call it cheap. I call it frugal. And while I won’t win any awards for my stitchery, dang if the thing won’t last me another year or so. Or sew.
