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

I’m all about minimalism these days. Why carry two things when you can condense down to one. One example of this is an iPhone 7 and a wallet. You can ditch the wallet if you buy an iPhone 7 case that doubles as a wallet, like the new X-Doria Stash iPhone 7 case. Available in… Read More

I’m always on the look out for unique EDC gear and the Tactical Wallet from Dango fits that criteria perfectly. What is it? It’s a minimalist wallet made of aluminum and leather that can hold cards and case just like other wallets. So far that doesn’t sound very unique, but the interesting thing about the… Read More

I had a chance to review a great little wallet from A-SLIM, the Sapphire Black Chikara. 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. Most women’s wallets and even men’s trifold… Read More

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
