The idea behind Zip Hers began with a toilet. Not sitting on one, but thinking about them, and how to empower women! As a dedicated runner and Houston Marathon alumni, I know how desperate you can get during some race to get to one.
Imagine running the Houston Marathon, or the Chicago Marathon on a winter day. You’re have several layers of clothing over a pair of compression tights. Men can relieve themselves behind the portable toilets or use nearby trees, unzipping their pants easily and discreetly. Women on the other hand are stuck waiting in that line, anxiously glancing at their watches as precious minutes ticked by.
At any outdoor event we need a pair of quality athletic pants with an easy opening so you don’t have to expose their private parts when just trying to go to the bathroom! Empowering women. This was our goal.
