Zipfit - great liners, crappy company ...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Anyone know the story behind Sven and his liners?  He has a great product, but wow they are difficult to deal with, and the general consensus seems to be the same. 

 

Hopefully the serious lack of customer service and availability doesn't mean they're / he is going out of business as that would truly be a shame, but I'm seriously wondering if I need to start the migration back to foam ...

 

 I envision Zipfit to be Sven, by himself, filling orders when he's not out skiing the fresh pow - is it a "hobby business" for Sven?

I'm sorry you feel this way, any particular reason? Zipfit has a long standing cult following for good reason- perhaps you just need some quality time on the hill in them to change your perspective?

woodee, what is the problem you have PM me if you want.... Sven is an inventor, he is in his 70's the only issue we come across is getting hold of stock in the first place, the factory is in Italy and staffed by a very small number of people (they make product for other companies too

 

if you can tell me the problem i might be able to help

You obviously misunderstood as I could be a self-proclaimed Zipfit cult leader.  I absolutely LOVE the liners.

 

As stated, availability and support is the issue - so much so that I wonder how much longer the company will be around?
