Quicky – Magnetic Tactical Belt On Kickstarter

Quicky

Carbon Tactics has started a Kickstarter campaign for Quicky, a quick-release magnetic tactical belt. Quicky features a buckle machined from 6061 T-6 aluminum. The buckle self latches and stays latched unless the user deliberately pinches and twists the buckle to disassemble it. The available straps include Biothane, a coated webbing product which looks like leather standard nylon webbing, and rigid tactical webbing.

    Why do I need this? Fortunately, or unfortunately, I’ve never has to escape my pants. Even with some food-borne illnesses, and the rare and elusive enthusiastic babe, a “normal” buckle has been quick enough.

    I’ve also had bad experiences with magnets doing funky things to compasses, credit cards and hotel room card keys, so I try not to carry one close to wear those things might be.

      I’m kind of curious. Do you carry a compass in your pocket and use it on a day to day basis? I’ve got one I can wear around my neck but it isn’t with me 24/7 but rather when I am in the back country.

        A compass definitively belongs to my every-day carry. Few things are as annoying as not having a compass when needing one. After one particularly embarrassing incident, having even failed to wear my dogtag with backup compass thingie around my neck, I decided to sew a button compass into the hem of every damn jacket I own.

        Besides, it’s very much “tactical” to have a compass, much more so – I’d say – than having this tactical magnetic belt…

        And yes, there are belts that have to be quickly releasable. Dunno about jeans, as pictured, but a diving weight has to be. Somehow, I’m rather dubious whether the Quicky magnetic buckle – even though “CNC machined for mission success” – will be the next big thing in dive-belt buckless.

    I had a chance to play with the prototypes today and I was beyond impressed. We had a LE SOG guy present as well that was excited to test it out for possible extreme use. Just wanted to say that as a third party I was impressed.
