The MagnoGrip is great, letting you keep nails, screws, and other small objects conveniently on your wrist during construction and repair jobs. But why leave those magnetic benefits to pins, nuts, and bolts? The Mag-Vest lets you use similar magnetic abilities to keep tools attached to your torso.
Just like a tool belt, you can use the vest to hold a good load of trusted hand tools, allowing you to keep them conveniently within easy reach at all times. You can use it to replace the tool belt or in conjunction with one, so you can carry even more tools hands-free, whether you’re installing a roof, fixing the plumbing, or building a 10-foot robot to attack your arch-enemy’s headquarters.
Mag-Vest comes with a flexible magnetic panel that measures 13.5 x 7.5 inches in the front, allowing you to simply slap pliers, wrenches, or any other steel tool onto the vest to keep them out of the way. It uses multiple C8-grade ceramic magnets lined up along the middle, allowing it to latch on to any tool that weighs 10 pounds or less. Aside from the magnets, it comes with two pockets for holding tools, a loop for carrying a hammer, a pair of loops for holding pencils, and a loop where you can clip on tape measure. Construction is 1680D ballistic polyester for the front of the vest and breathable mesh in the back to keep things cool.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Mag-Vest. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $60.
