Last year I had a new zipper installed with a little extra material (cost more than the case) and that is working well now.
I have the same set up and have been wondering how long the zipper will last for the same reason. I would like to get a 14" this year provided the 12 will nest in it. It wouldn't surprise me if it didn't being as they couldn't figure out how to size the 12" case.
If it works, I'm going to ask Jan at SNS make a custom padded case with a HD zipper and built in cam straps/buckles and D-rings so it can be strapped to my frame or hung off the pile somewhere. The GSI case has no attatchment points as well as having a lame zipper and being too small for their own dutch oven. Had I known, I would much rather have spent some extra money on something custom that not only does it's job better, but will last a lifetime.
