Wallets

I see a lot of wallets when I am looking for things to write about here at the Gadgeteer, I have even been fortunate enough to review a few. So, in order for me to write about another wallet it needs to have an interesting design or feature. The Billetus Carbon fiber Billet wallet, a [...]

I've never done drugs or gotten high unless you count snorting the addictive smell of these gorgeous leather wallets from Moose Brand. Hand me anything made of leather and I automatically bring it up to my nose for a sniff. Ahhhhh... There's something comforting about the smell of leather - good leather though, not weirdly [...]

We're fans of Waterfield Designs (AKA SFBags) around here at The Gadgeteer, and we're also fans of wallets and pouches to hold our small personal items. Waterfield Designs teamed up with Australia-based ELEVEN vélo, a bicyling-focused design studio, to create this leather wallet sized to fit in your cycling jersey's back pocket. While in some ways a bigger version of their [...]

I've been a big fan of Bellroy wallets ever since reviewing their Slim Sleeve Wallet a while back. Although I've tried several slim/minimalist wallets, lately I've been leaning toward wallets with a higher level of protection, like the Waterfield Designs Finn Wallet that I'm currently using. So I was quite happy to discover that Bellroy had [...]

Wallets and smartphones are two items that most of us EDC, or everyday carry, on our person. Why not combine the two? Or at least use them together. There are more than a few smartphone wallets available today, but the Kynez Cazlet iPhone Wallet, billed as an "Truly All-in-One Wallet," caught my eye for its [...]

Minimalist wallets seem to be the rage on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. You know, those uber-slim, ultra-small wallets that help you carry less in a smaller, lighter-weight package (and avoiding the dreaded Costanza Wallet syndrome). Steven Elliot is no stranger to slim wallet projects, having already successfully run two of them, and his latest Kickstarter campaign, the [...]

Wallets, I like them. I am always on the lookout for my next card carrier, and if you have been reading the site for a while you know that between us Gadgeteers, we have tried more than a few. To catch my eye a wallet needs to have something unique or utilitarian about it and [...]

Wallet, wallet where is my wallet? Better yet what wallet should I be using? What we call a wallet today has evolved from the 50's, 60's and 70's when all you had was your leather bifold or trifold wallets. Then again, cash was king and we did not carry all the plastic that we do [...]

Two of the items I always have on my person (other than a religious medal and my wedding band) are my iPhone and my wallet. Since I am always looking for a way to slim down my carry, and in particular a way to combine my wallet and phone, the Wally Stick-On from Distil Union [...]

In this installment of my-go-to-gear, we look at wallets. Oh the art of carrying things in our pockets. Wallets have become an art form these days, have they not?

I'm a fan of the slim wallet craze.  I've tried a few of them, and it's been good to minimize the amount of clutter in my wallet and to be able to carry it in my front or back pocket easily.  One drawback of many of these slim wallet designs is that you miss out [...]
