In this new world of touch-enabled devices that we are constantly checking, having to manage them, your passport, SIM cards, credit cards, cash and other small items during travel can really be a chore. Even traveling around town, you need coupons, business cards (yours and those you collect), maybe a notepad - loads of things… Read More

Gadgeteers love their wallets and consider them as yet another tool to improve their EDC. Choosing the right one can be tough because there are eleventy billion minimalist wallets on the market today. So let me add one more choice to the mix. It's the Trayvax Element wallet and it's a stunner. But is it… Read More

Wallets are a simple device on the surface, basically designed to carry your cards and cash. Not unlike many, I have complicated my wallet by adding things like a pen and pen knife. I have been pretty loyal to my old wallet for a while since it was custom made for me. But wallets have… Read More

I know there are many walletaholics here on The Gadgeteer and sadly I'm one of them. After becoming a front pocket carrier I appear to have accumulated  a wallet for different occasions. My EDC is a Saddleback Leather Small and when I need a more minimal wallet I put a subset of my cards into… Read More

Wallet phone cases have been around for a while. Not the slip-a-few-cards-in-the-back cases, but the fold-over, cover-the-screen type wallet cases. Most have an elastic band to hold them closed, but they are all fraught with difficulties, not the least of which is holding your entire wallet up to your ear during a phone call. Enter… Read More

The iPhone 6/6s Plus, the largest of Apple's iconic smartphone, has gotten a bit of a raw deal in the case market. Time and again, Julie has sent out review product notices, and they will be for every iPhone on the market - except the iPhone 6/6s Plus. Well, the artisans at Distil Union have… Read More

What do you get when you pair old world craftsmanship with modern day techno gadgetry? The Nomad Horween Leather Charging Wallet, that's what. Nomad's leather wallets feature a built-in 2400mAh battery and a Lightning cable. These wallets can hold your cards and cash, but remain thin enough to fit in your pocket so you'll always… Read More

Bellroy continues to push the envelope of stylish, well-designed, rugged wallets for adventure-minded folks. Building on their previous Elements line, Bellroy's latest Adventurer Collection of All-Conditions wallets look to be even more weather- and water-resistant with new zippers, zipper pulls and material (they've added a woven in addition to the water-resistant  leather) and packed with organizational… Read More

I'll just come right out and say it.  I'm a big fan of Bellroy's wallets. I've tried their Slim Sleeve and their Elements Pocket wallets and have really liked both of them (I still have the Elements Pocket in my regular EDC rotation).  When Julie gave me the opportunity to try out Bellroy's latest wallet… Read More

I've recently become a front pocket wallet convert. Instead of carrying a bunch of credit cards, a wad of cash, loose change, loyalty cards, receipts and other flotsam in a zippered wallet that I carry in my gear bag, I've pared down to just a few cards and a few folded dollars in a wallet… Read More

Although it seems like smartphones are trying to replace traditional wallets, we still need a pocket holder for our cash and credit cards. The wallet won't go down without a fight, but it does continue to shrink in size. The X2 Slimmy wallet from Koyono is a minimalist wallet that was successfully funded on Kickstarter early… Read More

I'm still on my own quest for the "perfect" wallet. And although this quest may never really result in actually finding the "perfect" wallet (for me), it sure is fun along the way. Lately, I've been on a kick to find a very minimal, thin, everyday carry wallet. When Julie offered the opportunity to try… Read More

There are so many minimalist wallets on the market that it's tough to keep track of all of them. There are minimalist wallets made of plastic, metal, elastic, leather and even special paper like Tyvek. I've reviewed quite a few wallets over the years, and it seems like there's always something about them that ends… Read More

I travel outside the USA for work several times per year and one thing I am a bit paranoid about is carrying my passport with me everywhere I go. I even take it to the hotel gym with me. However, I also always carry my iPhone with me and often I want my wallet as… Read More

I have been using a front pocket wallet for over a decade, but still haven't decided that the one I'm using is my ultimate. I remember a year or two back reading about the Tribe Wallet on Kickstarter, but hadn't backed it. Not sure why. When Julie offered the team the Tribe Wallet 3.0, a… Read More
