Finally got around to washing my armor and it was hard as hell to unzip the back protector. When I tried to put it all back together the zipper refuses to zip. I think my sweat corroded the zipper...is there anything I can soak it in to restore it? Anyone else run into this problem and has a fix?

i have the same problem, just make sure the zipper is fully in at that joint thingy, then use some force to get it going, the rest shouldn't be a problem.
one more thing you should looking out in a dainese is the outer and inner layers seperationg from the foam, the glue isn't that strong, now all those little pores dont line up.:nuts:

The zippers on teh backplate suck. Mine got stuck right when i first bought it. Just use some triflow on the zippers to help, or do what i did. Don't use the backplate :p

I had a similar problem but after a while my zipper actually broke off. I took my suit to a drycleaner/tailer and they put new heavy duty zippers on for a grand total of $15 for the 2 zippers for the back and the 2 chest zippers. The new zippers are smooth and ive never had a problem with any corrosion since
