Today’s review is the DUN Fold wallet. It comes in very simple packaging and is only offered in the color black. The wallet is a trifold, which is very unique for such a thin wallet. It has very tight sewing and is made from nice leather that feels really good.
There is one pocket on the exterior of the DUN Fold. It is located in the center area of the trifold. On the interior, there is a card slot on both the right and left hand side of the wallet. The middle area contains a pass through space where the cash is inserted then folded over twice.
Although I was able to get four cards and five slips of cash inside, the wallet flipped open. I am sure the leather has to wear in over time in order to close and remain closed. It can also handle foreign currencies. Minimal carry would probably be three cards. Reasonable carry is four. The company says you can get six to eight cards, but that would have to be after the leather has stretched over time. They also indicated it can handle up to 10 slips of cash which I believe. This is very similar to another slim trifold from Exentri.
The company mentions it can also handle coins in the inner right card slot. You would be able to do this because that part folds over and protects the coins from falling out. Even though the wallet has the capacity for coins, I really believe the slots are primarily made for a cards.
The wallet is designed in the Netherlands and made from full-grain calfskin veg tanned leather in Europe. It feels and really smells good. It also has RFID lining from Germany. The sewing is precise and has very nice painted edges on it. The construction is very well done.
It’s priced at $70 from their website.
The external card slot is non-RFID. This is nice because it makes it capable of tapping if you’re doing Oyster cards, subway passes, hotel room keys and other kinds of things. The thin closure is just fantastic and functions different from more thicker wallets like the Popov Trifold. I love how it sits and operates. The thin nature of this wallet is truly impressive. It is very well done on the design and construction of this. It has good flexibility and the leather and will develop a great patina over time.
It measures 4 x 3 x .2” and weighs 34 grams.
This was fully funded on Kickstarter in 2017. They do have a one-year limited warranty. This is somewhat of a one-hit wonder. I am not sure how long they will be around. I hope they continue to produce more wallets, extend their product line, and their capabilities, because it’s a great idea. However, the creativity seems to be lacking, because they only have one product.
For the final score, quality a 4, price a 3 at the $59 mark, but it would be a 2 at $70. Features a 3, usability a 4 and perception a 3. This gives us a final score of 36 out of 50.
