I have a Vortex Razor 85mm angled and the zippers are gone on its bag.  Anyone have any recommendations for a quality bag with good zippers?  I'm not interested in a hard case for it.

just curious...the actual zipper is no good, or just the zipper's Pull broke off?

Two of the three zippers broke in half.  I can still open and close the bag, with my fingernail.  Very cheap zippers, little disappointed in Vortex, great scope, cheaply made bag.

So the "pulls" broke, but not the actual zipper?  Big difference.  Get a split ring and some 550 cord and make a new pull.

Sorry for the crappy description, but the pulls broke.  That's a good idea, not sure if I can thread them but its worth a try.  Thanks!

You actually don't need the 550 cord...the split ring by itself is enough to grab on to.  But yeah - 2 of the zipper pulls on my Vortex Razor spotter bag broke too, so I feel your pain.  The bag is well made actually, it's just the zipper hardware that sucked.

This may sound weird, but I found a Wilson racquetball bag at a garage sale. The scope (a 20-60x80, so it's not small) fits in the smaller accessory/ball side and the tripod fits in the larger racquet side.
