Today we are going to review the KeySmart Urban Wallet. It comes in this very retailesque box. I got the gray color. A card is included with the potential of winning $1,000. It is made out of a TecTuff material and the sewing comes on the edges to prevent any fraying. It is very nice.
Now for the feature review of the KeySmart Urban Slim Wallet. This wallet is made of TecTuff. It is a synthetic material. By way of features, there is a card slot in the front that has a quick access push. There is nothing in the top, but on the side we have access for more cards or cash. This is not a design that’s unfamiliar to us. On the back of the wallet, we have yet another card slot with a quick access thumb push. They do have another slot, which is used for a tracker tile. It actually says, “Tile,”which is where you would put a tracker tile. We are seeing more companies move towards technology inclusion, like the NOMAD Tile Bifold, especially trackers within their car, or in their wallets.
Now for the card and cash insertion test. The company says it can hold up to six cards. We easily got six cards and five slips of cash inside, but that is really close to the maximum the cash protrudes a bit. We have reviewed other wallets that are similar to this, like the Anson Calder Cash Wallet, and this really is the best way to do it. If you fold the cash over over twice, you are going to have problems.
This also didn’t include in it’s thickness, a tile that you might put in the inner slot, so make a consideration for that. It is made from TecTuff leather. It’s abrasion, scuff, oil stained and water resistant, and comparatively lasts 10 times longer than traditional leather. Apparently, this wallet can take a lot of abuse. It is flexible and lightweight. It provides a friction barrier for the cards so they don’t fall out. As mentioned, they offer a tile tracker which is optional. This price on this is $40. It is front pocket usable. The wallet comes out very nicely and they fit very tight, so there is not much of a chance that you’ll break this in like you would with leather.
The measurements are 3.95 x 2.65 x 0.4”. It is fairly minimal. It has a two year warranty on it. The company started with KeySmart key systems, which I have actually had for several years. There are concerns that the card capacity and potential for the TecTuff to break down and peel, as well as the stitching coming out over time, but it seems to be really sporadic and not a consistent trend with it.
For the final score. For quality a 4, price a 3, features a 3 usability a 3, and perception a 3. That gives us a final score of 33 out of 50.
