Kynez Cazlet iPhone Wallet review

on Tuesday, June 10th, 2014
Posted in: Reviews, Wallets

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 itsRead More…


Dash 3.0 (AKA Trim) wallet review

on Friday, May 16th, 2014

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, theRead More…

Dosh LUXE6 wallet review

on Thursday, April 3rd, 2014
Posted in: Reviews, Wallets

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 doRead More…

Flipside 3X Wallet review

It’s always fun to see how a popular product evolves over time.

Il Bussetto Cognac Leather Zip Wallet review

on Thursday, November 7th, 2013
Posted in: Reviews, Wallets

Although minimalist wallets and money clips are currently the popular style, I prefer a small zippered wallet and have been carrying one for the past 8 years. Being able to secure the contents by zipping them up just makes me feel better. The latest zippered wallet that I’ve been trying is an Il Bussetto Cognac LeatherRead More…


ThinFolio wallet review

on Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

It seems like wallets are the latest me too fad on crowdfunded sites. Everyone and their brother is hawking the next best thing in minimalist wallets.

Wallets!  We’ve shown and reviewed quite a few of them here at The Gadgeteer, and I wouldn’t expect that to change in the future.  Wallets seem to be a quintessential gadget item.  Part of our EDC, we carry them everywhere with us, and each of us has certain expectations for our wallets.  Bellroy is aRead More…

So whats in my wallet? Do I even need to carry a wallet anymore? If I don’t want to carry a wallet, how do I carry my basics for everyday life? A while back there was a news posting about the HuMn Wallet, which is not so much a wallet in the classical sense asRead More…

Posted in: Reviews, Wallets

Personally, I’m a money clip-type of guy.  I can’t remember when I last carried my cash in a wallet, but I still carry a wallet for the credit cards and identification items.  When I discovered the J.

Posted in: Gear, Reviews, Wallets

I once saw a TV show where a woman was walking down a busy sidewalk, not doing anything in particular, not even bumping into the people she passed.  She seemed innocent, but she had a RF reader in her bag that was scanning the RFID-enabled cards inside the wallets of everyone she passed, and sheRead More…

Posted in: Reviews, Wallets

The idea of minimalism it not new, but its popularity has grown in recent years into an entire life philosophy for some.  One personal item that seems to find its way into many discussions on minimalism is the ubiquitous wallet.  Slim or “skinny” wallets are all the rage these days, with frustrated gents attempting toRead More…

When I find something that I like, I tend to use it for a long time. Six years ago I had the opportunity to review a wallet from Waterfield and I’ve been using that the same wallet ever since. I’ve had the habit of zipping my iPhone inside it for carry convenience. Waterfield must haveRead More…

Nutshell Smartphone Wallet Review

By: Mark Adkins
on Monday, October 17th, 2011

New Zealand’s Nutshell Corporation makes a series of cases for handheld devices called “Tuff-as-Nuts”. Gadgeteer Mike Reigel verified that the name was appropriate back in 2003. They combine that reputation with an interesting fastener in a tough wallet case for your smartphone. The main body of the case is a nice piece of gorgeous leatherRead More…

Early this year, I reviewed the Col. Littleton No. 50 Wallet for the iPhone which combined a leather sleeve to hold the iPhone, with a minimalist wallet.
