So i have a few jackets with 2 zippers. To zip it up you have to have both together which can sometimes be annoying. I never find myself using the lower one for anything. Does anybody know what purpose the second zipper serves as?

TWO-WAY separating zippers have two sliders and can zip down from the top and up from the bottom. They are used for parkas, car coats, ski wear, & uniform jackets. Their advantage is that the bottom can be unzipped part way when you sit down, to prevent stress at the bottom of the zipper.

I always thought it was so you could wear it like a cholo rishi.gif thumbs_up.gif

Yeah, I discovered that use a couple years ago, with my ski jacket. Double zippers also help to remove the faux-erection some jackets show.

I use the double zippers on my goretex jacket when I need something from the pockets of my bib-snowpants, but it would be too cold or wet to undo the top...makes a difference when you spent 5 minutes arranging your hood and balaclava just so.

My gf has a jacket that has a zipper and then buttons. I watched her zip it up and then button it (I swear we're talking about her jacket) and I asked her why she just didn't button it instead.
