Unzip is in the Non-Free distribution. Although Info-Zip's copyright is very
liberal, it's not quite DFSG compliant. There's also a version with
encryptation support in the non-US archives.

Description: De-archiver for .zip files
 InfoZIP's unzip program, packaged for Debian GNU/Linux. With the exception
 of multi-volume archives (ie, .ZIP files that are split across several
 disks using PKZIP's /& option), this can handle any file produced either
 by PKZIP, or the corresponding InfoZIP zip program.
