I am starting to get into this bag making thingy but have been wondering about what kind of zips to get. I see packets of very cheap ones at the grocery store and bulk lots even cheaper on eBay. Sometimes it is worth paying more for quality, other times you just pay more. Does anyone have any opinions on where to get zips and whether it is worth paying more or how to tell a quality zip from a bad one.

TIA

In my experience, YKK brand zippers are usually the best. They usually have a larger pull than the cheap "pants" or skirt zippers, which is essential when trying to unzip a bag..
