    I always rinse everything after a salt water foray which usually seems to keep everything OK. However after stowing the gear over the winter the one thing that seems to get all messed up is Zippers - seems like the residual salt migrates to the zipper where it all builds up to the point of jamming it all up. I can usually free the thing up after some effort but it seems like I should do some preventative oiling or something - Any ideas out there?

    Candle wax before you put them away. Run it up and down a number of times after rubbing on some wax.

    I oil my zipper every day. Just in case. They taught me that in the Navy. Then they gave a uniform with 13 buttons on the pants. Go figure.
