"The bZipt Zippered figure skating leggings make it possible for skaters to wear skating dresses or skating skirts, but also wear leggings. When a skater becomes warm, the full-length zippers make it easy to remove the leggings without taking skates off. This product is a very clever idea and has become a favorite especially for young ice skaters."
When the folks from bZipt Clothing, Inc contacted us and asked if we'd like to try out their new, innovative zippered leggings, we instantly recognized a good idea.
My wife is an avid hiker who is always wearing leggings and my daughter is a soccer player who is going to play in college at a place that has dramatic temperature swings. Having leggings that can zip up the leg to give relief from the heat, or that allow easy removal to strip down to shorts is something that will definitely come in handy.
They are stylish and functional. The original concept was developed by a busy mom with active kids who struggled with getting conventional leggings on and off when in a hurry. She realized that by simply adding a zipper along the legs the tights became more like the warmups you've seen basketball players wear who get called into the game at a moment's notice. The product caught on and was expanded for teens and adults. These are perfect for quick changes before or after dance, gymnastics, ice-skating or other sport activities like soccer.
Like conventional leggings, they can add an extra layer of warmth under skirts or dresses. Anything you can do with ordinary leggings you can do with these, but much more. Taking them off over shoes or skates is no longer a tug-of-war.
The bZipt line is new and, one of those up-and-coming companies we love to spotlight. They may be small now but just like their product offerings, we know they'll by growing by zips and bounds.
