Magic Strips are better than the Wilton Strips as you can stretch the magic strips. Just do a search on them.

I used two different search engines to find Magic Strips and both offered the non-stretch (Wilton type) bake-even strips called by various names....

Only stretchable stips I found were Rose's Heavenly Cake Strips which are silicone and only fit 8-9" square/round pans:

Is the material stretchy in the Magic Strips? If so, I don't think it could be as thick/dense as the bake-even strips material (so would hold less water).

The bake even strips can be easily adjusted by using either a large paper clip or small/medium binder clip, instead of the t-headed pins included.

You can also purchase bake even strips that are secured by Velcro so they adjust easily:

(Or add your own heavy duty Velcro.)

When using the bake strips with 3" high pans, would I use 2 strips to cover the whole side around the pan or do I use only one?

Yes, ebayUK has bake even strips:

If you have enough strips to use two on a 3" pan, I'd use them.
