Users comments
All of the user’s trousers have this zipper that enables him to easily drain the uribag. Different persons have helped him to customize the trousers. The user has also tried splitting and sewing in the zipper himself (just straight seams). When he split the seam on the side of the trousers he used his customized kitchen knife, see associated tip.
