YKK zipper repair
I've got 2 sweet jackets that I can no longer where due to zipper failure. I don't see anything broken on either, zipper teeth engage at the top of zipping it up, but not at the bottom.
Anyone know of a company that does this kind of work or do I need to send em back to the manufacturer?

If you can't no longer wair it, then send it back to mfg for repaire, visit your local seamstress, or if you have access to a sowing machine, put in a new zipper. It's really easy, unless your talking waterproof breatheable. That's the only advise I've got.I always hate it when there is a bunch of hype for a storm. I also don't like how so many areas are predicting big totals. - alabamaskier

take it to a place that does clothing repairs/altering. i've had several zippers on ski jackets repaired this way. it costs about $10 and its done in a couple days.
why would you send it back to the manufacturer, pay for shipping and have it sit in a warehouse for a month?
