Posted in: News, Wallets

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 theirRead More…

Posted in: News, Wallets

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 hadRead More…

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.

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).

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…
