thanks to those who recommended this. I did see a complaint about the zipper pulls and indeed one of mine failed.
I also found that I had to hunt for stuff. Everything I have is black in a black bag in a black pocket.
I searched and found dog tags for $2.50 each and fixed both problems at one time.
BTW: The pulls can be fixed. take a small screwdriver or allen wrench and push the the window in the plastic pull. The tab will pop open and you will see now the string is to be snagged by the prongs inside. So you can fix these very easily at no cost.
