Yes, it happened on 3 of the zips on mine. I went and bought replacement RiRi ones and attached them. It took about 20 mins per zip

Where did you get the replacement zips from?

I’ve got one from 2017 where both of the main compartment zips have broken, and one from 2007 that is still going strong. Think the RRP on the 2017 bag was 4x the 2007 one.

So basic. I'd hit the roof if that happened after spending so much.

Do Vis offer any kind of aftercare?

They didn’t offer anything… ignored my emails.
I googled riri zips and found them in a textile shop in East London.

I will try and dig out the details.

Okay - I got mine from a place called London Trimmings.

They stocked the sliders (pulls) for the following styles:
RiRi Flach and RiRi KTA in the following sizes M4, M6 and M8
