A while back, I posted a news item about the Magpul DAKA Pouch. Made in the U.S.A. from polymer-infused, chemical-resistant, non-hygroscopic (will not absorb moisture) textiles with an anti-slip texture that are impenetrably RF-welded on all seams, the DAKA Pouch is one of the toughest gear carrying items you may ever find.  Not content with… Read More

I’ve discovered that I have a real affinity for leather wallets. They’re flexible, durable, attractive and they smell great. I’ve also discovered an affinity for those wallets that carry my plastic cards vertically rather than horizontally. The Riveci Olympus – Bowie Pull-up Brown wallet is such a wallet and I was given the opportunity to… Read More

I am on a quest for a great leather wallet. I really enjoy using my Garzini Essenziale Finestra wallet, but are there others out there that I might like better?

I’m an EDC (Everyday Carry) user. You know, those little tools, tech and other items that you use regularly to help with tasks throughout your day. However, EDC often consists of several items that you have no good way to organize while carrying. There are many pouch-type cases out there, but often these provide just… Read More

While I travel a great deal within the US, I don’t often go out of the country and thus I rarely need my passport. But my wife has plans for the Gadgeteer Kid and me before he goes off to college and beyond. We are currently planning a nice long trip to the British Isles for the G.K.’s… Read More

The best feature of minimalist wallets is that they are ultra slim and take up minimal space in your bag or pocket. The problem is that this best feature can also impact how you remove cards from the wallet. A wallet that is ultra compact isn’t useful if you have to use pliers to remove… Read More

I am very picky about my EDC. I want quality items that are simple to use and are as minimal as possible when it comes to how much space they take up. About a year ago I realized that I almost never use cash anymore. When I buy something it’s easier to swipe a credit… Read More

After using the wallet in real world situations I can say that this wallet is exceeding my expectations when it comes to the smaller slimmer thin billfold wallets. First of all, the wallet’s name, Chikara, is the Japanese word for… Read More

I have been hunting for a small, thin, efficient, rugged wallet for years that isn’t overly expensive. I want something that I can just grab out of my purse that contains all of my basic necessities whenever the time calls for it and will fit in my pockets.

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.
