EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

German designed Aviator Card/Coin Band wallet raises the stakes!

We all know the band sandwich wallets; put two pieces of metal together with a band. Aviator’s take on this extends functionality, with optional add-on’s to customize it to your liking. This review includes a coin slot with quick thumb access cards options you’re going to want to see for yourself.

Let’s open up the Aviator card and coin band wallet. This color is silver

As you saw, I got 10 cards and 5 slips of cash folded over twice. It does have this unique and clever sliding coin slot, which is something you typically don’t see in band wallet where I successfully put 4 quarters. The company recommends up to 20 cards with the wallet adjustment and I’ll talk about that in just a second.

One thing to note is you need to hold the coin slot while pushing up the cards to ensure you don’t accidentally dump coins on the ground. The product is made in Germany. It’s made of aluminum with stainless steel screws and does have a lifetime warranty on all aluminum parts. The most unique feature of the wallet is its inner adjustable elastic band shown in this picture. The stainless steel bolt design, which is built into the frame, allows you to unscrew the back plate and adjust the rods to provide greater capacity.

The flexible band keeps everything together and allows you to carry up to 20 cards at its maximum setting. The price is $57. For all the features, this is a very fair price, especially compared to other band wallets out there.

Usability-wise we’ve got great interchangeable parts and quick draw access, I love the coin holder capability. But you do have to remember to hold the coins when you push the cards out or you’ll dump the coins, that’ll just become a habit. The measurements are 3.3” L by 2.1” W by .2” thin, which is of course when there is nothing in it. Very clever options for this kind of wallet and the engineering is excellent.

Let’s go over the final rating. For quality a 4, price a 4, features a 5, usability a 3 and finally, perception a 3, which gives us a final score of 37 out of 50. We hope you’ve enjoyed this review.
