The idea behind Zip Hers began with a toilet… not sitting on one, but thinking about them as dedicated marathon runner … how desperate you became during some competitions to get quick access to one.
Imagine running the Chicago Marathon one cold winter day, dressed in several layers of clothing over a pair of compression tights, and a long line portable toilets. The men could relieve themselves behind the portable toilet stations or use nearby trees, unzipping their pants easily and discreetly. The women on the other hand would be stuck waiting in that line, anxiously glancing at their watches as precious minutes ticked by.
We thought to ourselves, women at any outdoor event need a pair of quality athletic pants with an easy opening so they don’t have to expose their derrieres and other private parts when we’re trying to just go to the bathroom!
