Weird Al would be proud of this wallet

Keeping on The Gadgeteer’s theme of wallets that are non-traditional and “gadgety,” check out the Ögon Designs “Fan Shaped” Aluminum Wallet.  Similar in form factor and function to the Jimi, Flipside and Flipside 2 wallets, it has a few interesting differences.  This French-designed wallet features an aluminum shell (which Ögon claims can shield credit cards …

Ditch your wallet with the Phone Slipper

Here’s an interesting idea. It’s the Phone Slipper. It’s a silicone case for your iPhone or Blackberry 8300, 8310, 8320 or 8330, that will protect your phone, as well as act like a wallet. There’s a slot in the back where you can slide several credit cards and some cash. It seems to be a …

A folding ballpoint pen that fits in your wallet

The Foldz Flat Pen is a stainless steel writing instrument with leather trim that folds down to the size of a credit card, for easy storage in your wallet. The design is interesting, but I’m not sure how comfortable it would be to write with due to the triangular shape that it folds into. I …

Duck Bill Money Clip Review

How do you carry your money and credit cards around? Are you a wallet person or a money clip person? I typically carry the Waterfield Wallet, but when I’m traveling or want to be more minimalist, I use a small paper binder clip. The binder clip gets the job done, but it’s not as easy to use as the Duck Bill Designs Money Clip. Have a look…

ALL-ETT World’s Thinnest Wallets

There really hasn’t been much innovation in the modern wallet / billfold since its invention in the 1950’s. While wallets similar to what we know today have been in existence since the 17th century, it wasn’t until 50 years or so ago, that wallets with card slots were invented to accommodate a new form of currency called the credit card. These days we tend to carry around too many of these plastic cards, which causes our wallets to become way too thick for comfort. The folks at ALL-ETT have redesigned the ordinary billfold to be super thin, but with the same capacity for credit cards as the bum denting version you have in your pocket right now.

Civilian Lab Business Class LT Harness System Bag
