Today, we’re delving into the world of functional style with the Hide and Drink EDC Pouch Zipper Wallet.
The wallet boasts a rich malt mahogany hue that’s both timeless and eye-catching. The stitching is robust, ensuring this wallet stands up to life’s pressures. Its YKK zipper glides open, revealing a spacious interior free of dividers or organization slots – it’s a single cavernous pocket, ready to house your cards, cash, coins, AirTags, keys, pens, lighters, or whatever you wish to stow away and is similar to other zipper wallets we’ve reviewed in the past.
Compact and Practical EDC Pouch
Measuring at 4.75 x 3.75 x 0.5 inches and weighing in at 46 grams (or 1.6 ounces), this wallet is a compact companion for your everyday adventures. The scent is unobtrusive, allowing you to focus on its functionality.
Craftsmanship and Origin
Designed and meticulously crafted in Guatemala, this wallet does more than carry your essentials; it carries a purpose. Supporting local craftsmen, Hide and Drink aligns with the spirit of community. This commitment to local artisans shines through in the wallet’s quality.
The wallet features two external EDC slots, a fantastic addition. Yet, we can’t help but wonder why there’s no quick access card slot. It would have elevated this wallet even further.
