Zippers: they’re especially difficult for small children, drunks, and injured people—and at some point many of us have been at least 2 out of the 3. (In fact, #2 and #3 kinda go hand in hand.) So why is it that it took 100 years for anyone to make significant improvements on the zipper? I dunno—maybe they were too busy getting drunk and injured too. Luckily the folks at Under Armour haven’t been too drunk or injured to create Magzip, a one-handed magnetic zipper system. The magnets attract the two sides of the zippers together, while the shape of the clasp keeps them in place while you pull the zipper up with one hand. Expect to see some of these zippers Under Armour’s 2014 fall release.
