Replacement zipper for hoodie - determining zipper size

I have a hoodie that lost the zipper slider. Is there a way I can determine what replacement size I need?

Iíve seen some of the kits on Amazon with a few sizes but I just want to know what I need before waiting money on something like that.

Replacement "sew in" zipper or slider ?
I've never seen a replacement slider.

You can get replacements, best/easiest is to find a local sewing/fabric store and they will set you up!

Some larger dry cleaners do those kind of repairs also!

There are replacement sliders, but depends on the size of the zipper. Generally speaking, it's probably a #5 or #10 but hard to tell on this end. I think the dry cleaner route might be the best bet.
