      I like the concept, but the laser marking ruins it. Put it on the back so it’s out of view when latched closed and I’d buy one in a heartbeat.

        Their marketing team needs to be let go.

        The laser marking goes well with the Serpa holster, behind the hip draw, in the pic. WHO does that ??

        Hey Jeremy,

        We will be rolling out our stealth option onto the Kickstarter page soon. It will hide the logo under the strap in use. We’ve had lots of comments about this and wish to please, so it’s now going to happen!

      Yes low profile is what always needs to be an option. Great concept, I’ll wait till it goes mainstream

      Seems like they say carbon tactics’ “quicky” belt, and decided to copy it.

      • Robert says:

        Thanks for the Carbon Tactics plug. I was thinking about the Magna belt but I think I like the CT one better. It’s just cleaner without all the logos.

      • Bryce says:

        Are those the guys that ripped off the Fidlock magnetic buckle? Seems everyone now is ripping off Fidlock.

      • Mike says:

        Hey demure,

        While there are lots of similarities between our two products, the Magna Belt boasts some features that the quicky does not.

        Our belt will slide through normal sized belt loops, and stay adjusted in place, where as the quicky has to be taken apart, and re adjusted to put it on a pair of pants.

        The Magna Belt also features much more powerful polymagnets, that also self align, where as the quicky uses normal magnets, that simply can’t compare to the polymagnet strength, and functionality.

        As for looks we will be rolling out a stealth option as well where the logo is hidden, thus giving the belt a sleeker look for those who want it. We are also trying to get other strap colors in the mix, but it isn’t certain if this will happen in time for the Kickstarter yet.

        Hope that helps clear up some differences.
