We’re back to answer and address a few items. First is my mistake in how to use the Singular Wallet, it’s much easier than I demonstrated. Also, how we comparisons, NOMAD’s Slim wallet manufacture is actually China, not the United States and the Frenchie Card Holder 2.0 “flick” open, is it really useful?

Welcome to another Q&A. Despite the many means YouTube provides us to communicate with each other, it’s still pretty limiting, especially when I need to clarify things, or you have pressing questions.
The first question is if there’s a better way to access the contents of the Singular wallet, you messed it up Mark. Yeah, I kind of did. There is a better way. What I was doing wrong was to completely remove the strap every time I wanted to get into the contents. That’s not how it works, and I actually had a great conversation with the owner about it.
The proper way is to leave the elastic in place. All you need to do is pull the flap up, leaving the elastic. The idea is that you just put the flap underneath the elastic once done, that’s all you need to do. When you want to access a card, you open the flap, leave the elastic in place, find the card you want, pull it out, use it, then replace it, close the flap, putting it under the elastic and you’re done.
We’ve talked about a quick access card slot as I’ve mentioned how I wish all wallets had a quick access card slot, and Jorge explained to me how there’s an easy way to do that with the Singular Wallet. Easy, enough, all you need to do is place the card under the elastic, under the flap. You can tap pay with it and remove it when necessary easily and it holds well in place.
The usability is much better than I originally thought, and I appreciate everyone’s comments on how to do it correctly.
Question number two when comparing wallets, I try to choose wallets that are close. Fairly close is footprint, features, material, etc. Some of the requests I receive I can’t see how they can be compared due to them being so different. I’m always up for great comparison recommendations, but if the comparison isn’t obvious, you’ll need to explain it to me.
Question number three. After further investigation and information from the community, the NOMAD slim wallets, which we’ve done a few reviews on Their wallets are very nice and are made from Horween leather, which is excellent leather and we love it, but the problem is that we said the wallet was made in the United States. NOMAD wallets are actually manufactured in China, not the United States. Since nothing could be found about the country of manufacture on NOMAD’s website, we assumed they were made in the U.S. But after a live Instagram feed from the marketing team at NOMAD, it appears they use a Chinese factory.
Last question, number four is regarding the Frenchie 2.0 card wallet. There’s been questions whether it “flicks” open like you see in some of their videos or is it gimmicky. You actually can “flick” it open by putting one finger at the top back and the bottom back of the wallet and flicking the cards out. You have to do the awkward finger hold or it wont’ work. Another and easier method is to just pull the cards out for selection by pulling the cards from the exposed cards corners at the top.
Another quick Q&A done. If you have any questions or concerns about things I could improve on, please send a note, put them in the comments, or send me an email.
