Description:
[0001] The background for this invention is an idea derivied from a desire to be totally different from other sportswear designers in every respect, as well as offering the convience of being able to go from long pants, to shorts in a matter of seconds. In addition, not only do the pants legs zip away, but the sleeves and hood zip away as well. The zippper structure is designed to zip in a zig zagady or up and down motion.

[0002] To Summarize this matter, the users of this invention will have style combined with convience in their sportswear attire which can be a real benefit if weather conditions happen to change during an outing. In addition, it also adds flexibility to a persons attire and saves a person money from having to go out and buy a separate shorts outfit. The zippers on the invention are made from ordinary metal or plastic zippers in which every zipper in the various locations all zig zag when opening or closing, with exception to the pants pocket zippers which zip the regular way, up and down. The zig zag zippers, are located on the jacket in the front, as well the sleeves area, and the pants leg area as well. In addition, those suits which have hoods to them also have and are equipped with the zig zag zippers on them. Please note that there are 4 each design illustrations which show the zig zag zipper invention and it's intended use.
