(if you want to see all the features and how many cards and cash it can hold, please watch the video)
This is non-traditional packaging, which I love to see, and recognize those who put as much detail into the packaging as the product itself.
This is the Aer Cardholder, it comes in either a black camo or just black. It has a nice, beefy zipper. The body is made of ballistic material. It’s kind of big lengthwise here, but it is built to last.
There is no features on one side of the wallet, but if we flip it over, we’ll notice there are 3 cards slots. To get into the main compartment, you have to open it with the zipper. There are no particular features in the main area inside. You can put cards, cash, keys, coins, or whatever else will fit. That is the simplicity of this wallet.
We put 8 cards in there just fine, plus 5 slips of cash. The company doesn’t make any recommendations on number of cards and cash, so it’s really up to you how many you put in there. One thing we did not like, of course, is that US currency barely makes it in there folded over once. Foreign currency doesn’t make it at all. You’d will need to fold foreign currency over twice to get it to fit. So even though it looks kind of big, it is narrow once you get into it, even though it is long.
It’s designed in the United States, and made overseas. It’s made of 1680D CORDURA Ballistic nylon, the same that’s used in military applications, and it’s super strong. The exterior is awesome. And guess what? It has a YKK zipper. Finally, somebody that realizes the importance of zippers. It has a microfiber lining on the inside, and these three quick-access card slots are really quite nice. The inside is RFID, the three in the outside are not, which is nice.
It’s $45. I think that’s reasonable, especially for the construction and quality of the materials. The contents are easy to gain access to, as are the cards, on the outside. I’m concerned about cards potentially falling out, because if you don’t have anything on the inside that is expanding, keeping the cards in their slots via compression, they could fall out. That’s something to be aware of, but I’m sure it’s really not that big of a deal, especially if you have more than one card in each of these slots.
It measures 5.1 x 3 x 0.2”. This is a little longer than a normal wallet, and weighs 32 grams, so it has hefty material in it. I just love the durability of this, really. And the quality of the materials that are put into this, this will last a long time. You will grow bored of this before it wears out, for sure.
Now, I wish they didn’t put the RFID material in here, as it would have lightened it up a bit and maybe thinned it out. But overall, you really can’t fault it for anything else.
Now onto the final score, for quality a 4, pricing a 3, features a 3, usability and 3 and perception a 4. That leaves a final score of 35 out of 50.
