New Mag Series Chest Packs and Wading Packs: Once in awhile a new technology comes along that is so revolutionary that the experience of using it , far exceeds even the most eloquent of mixture of nouns and verbs, the New Zip-No Mag Series is just such an innovation. Willy J researched the New Mag Series for over 7 years. Each bag has no zippers, hook n loops, or latches to catch, get stuck, ice up or jam. The New Zip-No system uses rare earth magnets that have been converted into rope like strands that are actually sewn in place instead of traditional zippers. The result is a water tight seal that closes tight every time under any condition. Using this makes things much easier, just pull down and the pocket opens. ( As a side note: folks that have medical issues related to magnets, ie pacemakers should consult physicans before use. Some electronics devices such as storage retrival, ipods, phones or memory sticks may also be sensitive to magnets, check with manufacturer before using electronics or storing in pack. )
