Magzook was born on a highway.
While riding his motorcycle through Michigan, Devin found the cuff of his pants blowing up and exposing his legs, which resemble that of a yeti. He thought there'd already be a product on the market to remedy this annoyance, and he quickly found something to meet his needs, purchased it online, and hit the open road. This overpriced solution quickly failed, and he knew that he could create something of higher quality at a lower price point.
Not having a clue how to sew the first prototype was made using copper wire, elastic nylon, two magnets and a metal clip. Seeing that it worked he asked his grandma to teach him how to sew using her antique 1951 Singer Sewing Machine. Armed with a couple metal clips, some spare webbing, and four magnets, he created the first pair of bootstraps called Magstraps. Soon he realized the tightening system could be applied to other products and after days of stitching and fine tuning the MagBelt came to life.
With two magnets, some belt webbing and a metal ring, Devin created a magnetic belt that eliminates belt holes, belt overhang and adjusts to fit perfectly to your waist. Devin wanted to get the product to market quickly and was looking for a business partner to help him along the way. At the time Devin was driving for Lyft to help fund his idea. He picked up Kyle as a fare one Saturday morning, showed him the MagBelt, and they soon decided to partner.
After deciding to launch the MagBelt on Kickstarter, they knew they'd need a great video and asked Mike to fly down from Seattle and help them out. After seeing how awesome the MagBelt was and it's pants-hoisting potential, he joined the Magzook team.
If you support Magbelt on Kickstarter, you'll get a sweet belt. Give more and get more MagBelts—pretty much the definition of a win-win. If you want a belt that fits great, stays put, and looks awesome, thanks to the simplistic and classic design, then you need a MagBelt.

Belt Sizes (Just Measure Your Waist)
We've created this sizing chart to be specific to the actual inches around your waistline. If you're unsure about sizing, grab some measuring tape and measure your waist with pants on. Also remember that the buckle adds 3 inches to the overall length of the belt. If you're still unsure, order a size up, it will still fit great, and you won't have an annoying flap, because magnets are magic.
