Right now you are 3rd in line for the bag. Here is a picture of the problem area.

Looks like one of the zippers to the bottom compartment (i.e. what most of us are using for primary disc storage). If so, there are two zippers for that (zips up from either direction).

FWIW - If one of mine broke, I wouldn't even fix it, I'd just use the other. HTo be honest, about the only time I zip it is when it's raining or to keep snow and debris out, and even then, I usually just zip it part way just to keep the flap kind of closed. For a while, I even had that flap tucked under all the disc, and never used either zipper at all.

Just sharing one owner's experience - bag's still going strong.

Well if I zipped the other zipper all the way across, it would come off as well.

Is it just one set of zipper teeth is unsecured on one side, so the pictured zipper head slipped completely off one track when it was unzipped all the way? If so, can it be rethreaded through the zipper and then sewn in place? Doesn't sound too difficult unless I'm missing something - but I miss things all the time.

Both sides are unsecured.

Look through the DIY Backpack thread. Tons of options. I used a swiss gear backpack without any mods that worked beautifully.
