There are new Olympic zippers for the athletic outerwear to be worn throughout the upcoming 2014 games. This collection has new transparent and waterproof zippers that will be worn for American, Canadian and Russian athletes at the upcoming 2014 Olympics. Columbia Sportswear was able to embed these new waterproof zippers as an extra feature to enhance the usability of the winter gear.

The 'LightRail Zipper technology' had been developed for the past few years as Columbia was contracted to design these nations outfits. The new zippers are depicted as lighter, slimmer, more flexible, and easier to zip than traditional waterproof zippers. This Olympic Zipper technology will soon be available as the most efficient and fashionable feature yet.
