The MGear Story: How It All Began!

July 15, 2021

This week, we invite you to learn about how the MGear story began, as well as its founders, Robeco Clarete and Michael Zobel. We’re delighted to share this behind-the-scenes look at MGear with our followers for the very first time. Hopefully, you enjoy the story as much as we enjoyed writing it!

The MGear Story

MGear was developed in a design and manufacturing studio founded by Robeco Clarete and Mike Zobel. The guys met in college while pursuing their engineering degrees. They bonded over their shared interest in adventure, science, technology, and passion for great design. After college, both guys established successful careers in product development, engineering, and manufacturing. In 2017, their shared interests brought them back together. This time, their real-world technical skills and professional expertise, combined with their deeply rooted desire to innovate, led to the formation of MGear

Since our inception, we have focused on developing innovative products for modern men and women. Our designs are driven by three guiding principles:

  • Compact, minimalist products that pack a lot of functionality
  • Users can select specific features that are useful to them
  • Users can customize and personalize their products

We take pride in designing compact, multi-purpose products that you can carry with you in your daily adventures. A perfect example of this is our Gadget Wallet 3.0, which holds all your cards but can be expanded with other useful accessories such as multi-tools, mini pen, flashlight, storage tube, data storage, and even a personal tracker. Now that’s what we call a multi-talented product!

All MGear products are designed with YOU in mind. That’s why when selecting your MGear product you get to decide what features to add. If you prefer the smallest, minimalist version of the product, you can get the base version. However, if you love useful gadgets, you’ll probably prefer the same product with a few practical accessories on board. It’s your choice!

And speaking of choice, we are delighted to craft truly one-of-a-kind products for our customers. All our products come in different color and material combinations, while our most customizable products like the Gadget Wallet 3.0 can be personalized with custom messages, images or logos. Thanks to this high level of customization, our Gadget Wallets are enjoyed by everyone for many years to come.

Our products are hand-crafted and assembled from precision parts produced in the USA and Canada and components from China and the Philippines. We want everyone to have their MGear product by their side for years to come. This is why everything we develop goes through rigorous testing, at the hands of both our employees and our customers. We don’t just want you – our customers – to take our word for it, we want you to be part of the process.

The Future

We’re still very young as a company, and we’re excited about what lies ahead. We’re always striving to develop unique products that solve problems people encounter in their daily lives, whether in their own homes or deep in the wilderness.

We have plenty of new ventures on the horizon. We’re currently converting shipping containers into pop-up stores. We’re also working on a mobile production shop that will take our business on the road and participate in various trade shows. Finally, we’re also in the process of opening additional production facilities and retail stores across North America.

The future looks bright at MGear and we want to take our customers with us on every step of the journey!
