Summer is the perfect time to enjoy and celebrate the great outdoors. Here, at YKK we make products for all your favorite outdoor activities, from hiking, camping to diving and white water rafting. Throughout the month of July we shared videos and information about some of the YKK products especially made to improve your outdoor experience.

We launched our series with this video, in which Trent Bush, vice president apparel at Black Diamond Equipment, discusses Black Diamond’s collaboration with YKK on the world’s first YKK® Super Lightweight Zipper for the Deploy Wind Shell. The zipper was on view in our booth at the Outdoor Retailer Sports Expo & Conference, July 23-26. We should note that during the event Black Diamond’s Deploy was 1 of only 10 products that was awarded the Editor’s Choice award from Gear Patrol , from the 150 brands and thousands of products that were considered.
