The World’s Most Perfect Zipper

Under Armour has done something that hasn’t been done in almost 100 years:

Improve the zipper.

The Magzip uses a strong magnet and new clasp to automatically push the ends of the zipper together. The result? You can zip the zipper with just one hand.

The original zipper was first introduced at the 1893 World’s Fair. And, for the most part, it’s remained unchanged since.

To me, the biggest benefit of this new design is zipping a jacket while wearing gloves. As you know, that can be a real chore. So if this new zipper can make that task easier, I’m all for it. The new zipper will be paired with Under Armour products later this year.





  1. wow this is cool it would be awesome if under armour would allow other companies to use their design. Now that would be cool!

  2. Will you be able to leave your zipper unzipped? Seems like the magnet would keep connecting to the other end.

    • It probably is a very low-powered zipper, so that it would only connect if you put them close together, kinda like cabinets in RVs that keep them from opening while on the road.
