I want to make some wet bags, and so I want some really heavy-duty zippers that will stand up to a lot of washing.  Any ideas?  The ones at my local fabric store are kind of flimsy...

I used a polyester zipper and boiled wool from my stash for my dd's wet bag and it held up through 2 kids and 3 years of washing (she threw it in with the diapers as needed and lanolined after washing).  She still uses it as wet bag (now 4 years old) but now it holds wet bathing suits and towels instead of diapers.
