Use SharpZipLib:

It's cool. Thanks. BTW is there a licensing issue if I need to use it on
production ? Or it's an open source and anyone can use it for free ?

No issues.

From the web page:

License

The library is released under the GPL with the following exception:

Linking this library statically or dynamically with other modules is
making a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms and
conditions of the GNU General Public License cover the whole
combination.

As a special exception, the copyright holders of this library give you
permission to link this library with independent modules to produce an
executable, regardless of the license terms of these independent
modules, and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under
terms of your choice, provided that you also meet, for each linked
independent module, the terms and conditions of the license of that
module. An independent module is a module which is not derived from or
based on this library. If you modify this library, you may extend this
exception to your version of the library, but you are not obligated to
do so. If you do not wish to do so, delete this exception statement
from your version.

Note The exception is changed to reflect the latest GNU Classpath
exception. Older versions of #ziplib did have another exception, but
the new one is clearer and it doesn't break compatibility with the old
one.

Bottom line In plain English this means you can use this library in
commercial closed-source applications.
