A long time ago I started carrying a front pocket wallet to downsize the amount of stuff I was carrying daily. Between a wallet, keys and smart phone, pockets tend to be full and heavy. Sometimes less is more. Distil Union is announcing the Wally Case Kickstarter campaign, which combines a wallet and iPhone 5 case for only

A couple of years back, our own Carly Z reviewed the Mighty Wallet, a thin, “green”, micro-fiber wallet that she felt was a good alternative to the usual run of the skins of various animals folded into a wallet-shape. (I use a Vaja leather wallet which I love, but hardly ever take out of my bag unless I needRead more
We reviewed Spigen SGP’s Illuzion for the iPhone 5 some months ago. (Read the review.) Fast forward a bit and the Samsung GALAXY Note 2 is gaining an increasing number of fans. The phablet (phone/tablet hybrid) is an impressive device and I am seeing an increasing number of people carrying them. As with all “take everywhere” devices youRead more
When I was in middle school, a friend of mine showed me his wallet. On both faces of it when closed, it was covered with a velour-like material that made it a little more difficult to pull out of his pocket. ”No one can steal my wallet without me feeling it!” he said with a lot of pride. I wasRead more
We’ve reviewed numerous products from Sena cases, and the story is always the same… in a good way. The company’s cases are made from quality leather, and they are artfully crafted and are made to last and stand up to serious use and abuse. Add in a nice range of color and texture choices, and there is pretty much somethingRead more
I’ve been a fan of Flipside Wallet’s products since I first saw, and later reviewed, the Flipside 2X Wallet. (Read the post.) Sure, the Flipside Wallet 2X looks a bit unusual, but I really like it. I like the fact that it keeps my wallet organized; I like the fact that my credit cards are shielded from crooksRead more
My Wallet of choice is the Flipside 2X from Flipside Wallet. It doesn’t look like a traditional wallet, and that’s a good thing. No, this wallet is made from a rigid Reinforced Polycarbonate. It looks like this…

We’ve all heard of (and many of us use) eWallet software and alternative methods to pay electronically; these apps and methods have been around for years. In our move towards convergence and the ultimate goal of lifestyle simplification, it seems that in the last few years there has been a push to eliminate our wallets and get all of our
You may recall AUTUM for their cool bike and their even cooler (and freakier) coffin-turned-sofa. Well, AUTUM is back with some cool designs and we have an early look.
They have a brand new iPad sleeve design called the Tourniquet iPad Sleeve. It is simple and, no surprise here, the leather is gorgeous.
As they explain,
Simple. That’s where
The other day we reviewed Sena’s gorgeous Hampton Wallet for iPhone 4/4S. It is a luxurious leather case that doubles as a wallet and is a pleasure to hold and to use.

Here at Gear Diary we work hard to give as honest and complete a report as possible when we review a product. That means we will point out the things we like but also point out the things that need improvement. It means we will rave about something we love but we will be critical of items we don’t.

Yes, their products tend to be on the pricey side, but they are as much works of art as they are usable accessories. Which brings us to their latestRead more
