What's the best lube for ... zippers

There seem to be a lot of zippers in my life beyond the ones attached to my pants. What's the best way to keep them zipping and unzipping smoothly and easily?

Some of the many zippers I frequently encounter: huge ones on the soft top windows on my jeep, slightly less huge ones on rescue/emergency and climbing gear bags, heavy duty ones on motorcycle jackets, boots and gloves, and tiny annoying ones in some cold weather gear. Ideally I'd like a lube that is non-staining, fairly viscous (so it doesn't drip off or splatter) and relatively weather resistant (won't wash away in the rain on my jeep top).
