Anyone have experience with reconnecting the zipper pull on a dry suit? See image. No damage on the teeth. Should I send this to someone or try and fix this myself? Thanks

had that same zipper blow on my kokotat. I was able to rejoin it, but it would spontaneously open up under stress. Kokotat is great and replaced it free. Failed zipper on a dry suit can be life threatening. I would check with ProMotion as they do repairs.

I had a good experience with Immersion Research in White Salmon. You might want to reach out to them to see what they recommend.
