Sometimes we check out items that bring our tech to the cutting edge. Other times, we look at things that turn simplicity into art. We were offered the opportunity to check out a Carved Alloy Wallet, and it’s safe to say they’ve set a new bar for functional art!
Some months ago, my friend David turned me on to Ekster wallets. He had just gotten one and loved it. Soon after, I got an Ekster Parliament Wallet, and I’ve also become a fan. Now they’ve released the Ekster Aluminum Cardholder. It’s excellent and has a few unique features I love; it’s also currently on sale.
I tend to go through cycles with my wallet. Sometimes it’s bursting with receipts, business cards, and every card I’ve ever thought I might need, but every once in a while, I get the urge to slim down my everyday carry to a more reasonable level. I was recently given a chance to check out the MGear Gadget Wallet 3.0, a customizable minimalist wallet, and I figured it might be worth a try.
We recently brought word that Nomad had released three new leather wallets. These include the new Card Wallet, the Card Wallet Plus, and the Bifold. Each is beautiful, and each serves a different approach to “every day carry.” Of the three new wallets, the Nomad Card Wallet Plus sits nicely in the middle and holds “just enough.”
Nomad is on a roll this spring and announcing one new product after another. Today, there are three new premium Nomad leather wallets to look at as well as a brand new product they call “Card for AirTag.” Each wallet has a different card capacity, so there’s sure to be one that’s just right for you. Card for AirTag then takes them to the next level.
Before the pandemic, when I would travel (remember doing that?), I usually packed a gear pouch loaded with cables, batteries, adapters, and more. The resulting package was bulky, cumbersome, and it weighed a lot, but it kept me connected in any situation when I was away from home. Even when I’m just going out and about or to the office, I’ll usually bring too much gear with me, but the Pitaka MagEZ Digital Travel Kit makes that a thing of the past.
We’re fans of Nomad. They make excellent cables, comfortable bands for Apple Watch, stylish and efficient wireless chargers, and superior phone cases. They also design and manufacturer beautiful leather wallets. We’ve reviewed a few and have always been impressed. They are now offering a limited edition Shell Cordovan Wallet that reflects their craftsmanship AND social responsibility.
We reviewed Nomad’s leather wallet with Tile tracking some time ago. (Read our review.) Now they have announced their new Nomad Traditional Passport Wallet with Tile Tracking. Made with the same Horween leather we’ve seen in many of Nomad’s other products; its thoughtful design looks great, while the built-in Tile tracker means you’ll keep track of your valuable travel documents.
Who says buying wallets for a family member has to be boring? For the dad who has everything to the student who constantly loses their ID card, Bellroy has a little something for everybody to check out over the holidays.
If you’ve been looking for a wallet that holds just the essentials, one that you won’t end up losing, Nomad’s Slim Wallet with built-in Tile Integration is the only wallet that you’ll ever need.
Like many people, I try to recycle and be somewhat cognizant of the trash I generate from just existing in the modern world. I also like to keep my wallet as compact as possible. Surprisingly, these two goals collided nicely when Reborn Rubber offered us the chance to review their wallets made from upcycled wetsuits!
I constantly misplace my wallet so, for the past year I’ve kept a Tile Slim tracker in my wallet. Now Nomad has released a minimalist wallet specifically designed for use with a Tile Slim. I’m a fan. The $79.95 Nomad Slim Wallet with Tile Tracking is gorgeous. A Tile Slim is included, and there’s a special slot just for it.
There are so many minimalist wallets from which to choose that it can be challenging to find the right one. Ridge Wallets are worth a closer look. They are about as minimalist as you will find yet they offer a host of great features that will make it easy to carry, and access, your cards and cash.
Raina loves the Distil Union Wally Agent wallet I reviewed some time ago. I love my Distil Union Wally Bifold; I reviewed the first release and then reviewed the updated version. Now the company has released a third edition of the Wally Bifold. It’s better and more secure than ever.
Minimalism is in, and one of the best places to start scaling back on all the crap you own (or carry) is in your own back pocket. Rather than carrying a wallet stuffed with bills, receipts, cards, and who knows what else, you could be carrying a PITAKA New, a magnetic modular Carbon Fiber Wallet.
We reviewed the Micro Wallet from Distil Union. I followed up with a review of the Wally Agent. Now we turn our focus to a revised version of the Wally Bifold. I reviewed the original Wally Bifold; I stopped using it for a specific reason and, in the updated version, that issue has been resolved. I love it!
A few weeks ago, we reviewed the Wally Micro, the smallest of Distil Union’s wallet offerings. The Micro is great if you want to travel light. At the other end of the spectrum is the Distil Union Wally Agent Billfold Wallet. It isn’t all that large, but it holds significantly more than the Micro. Here’s a look.
This is the first of a series of reviews of Distil Union wallets. All feature thoughtful design and are all well-crafted. This being the first review I thought I would begin with the smallest of the review samples I was sent- the Wally Micro. This is the smallest wallet I have ever used, and I’m amazed how much it holds.
Whether you are an experienced, well-seasoned traveler or a person who travels just a few times a year, keeping your critical information handy and organized is essential. In my career, I’ve logged well over 2 million miles in the air, and if there is one thing I’ve learned, having all of your boarding passes, passport and frequent travel cards in one location makes travel less stressful.
The X-Doria Stash Case for iPhone 7 is under $20, but it feels and functions like a far more expensive case. It’s highly protective and holds a couple of cards without becoming a bulky brick of a case. That makes it a great option for anyone who is looking to travel light but still needs a license and credit card.
Is it safe to say that one of the best iPhone wallet cases that I’ve personally tried out just so happened to be by a company who specializes in wallets? Well if it is, let me just say: Bellroy has the best iPhone 7 wallet case I’ve used thus far.
