Hi everyone - Just got a mono key pouch and while there is no light shinning through I notice the zipper seems like it is sticking out. I looked at my other two key pouches and apparently the zipper corners were sewn down on those but not this new one. My other key pouches are much older (and MIF) so I wasn’t sure if this is just how they are made these days or if this relates to the USA quality control issues. Thoughts appreciated!!

There’s a thread about the poor quality of the MIU key pouches. I returned 2 in the past few weeks because I compared it with a MIF one I also received and clear difference in the stitching. Both MIU ones were very poor quality. I do not recall what the zipper looked like but I do believe all 3 pretty much looked the same.

I just picked up a DE clés, made in France, and the zipper corners aren’t sewn down either. Thought it was a little odd but like you, my other clés is over 10 years old - so I just assumed they changed how they make it.

Here is the thread so hopefully they can be combined

I've received two MIF ones this week and both are like that, I assumed it was normal.
Thanks for letting me know. That is a shame. It really sticks out... I’m wondering if I should buy a pre-loved older one...

Hoping to get some input. I received the DE key pouch and the zipper seems to be wonky and isn’t easy to close. It also has a slight crease. Not sure if it’s worth returning or just keeping it.
My zipper looked like that too and was difficult to close. I aggressively zipped and unzipped it repeatedly for about a minute and it hasn't given me problems since.
