EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

Pulo Tactical brings minimalism to the minimalist band wallet market

Designed and manufactured in Poland by AK Design, the Pulo Tactical band wallet attempts to bring minimalism to an already minimal band category. Through clever stainless steel cutout designs, it's lightweight with an excellent card and cash capacity, all while still managing to provide a bottle opener feature in a cool, tough, tactical look.

Let’s open up the AK Design Pulo tactical band wallet. It’s a sand yellow color, comes in a nice felt bag.

The company recommends one to 16 cards and up to 16 slips of cash. We easily fit 10 cards in there, but the cash is a little wonky in two ways.  First how you fold it to get it in and the difficulty in getting it in. The company represents folding cash into thirds. It seems like companies like to do that as you can see in this picture. It looks like it fits perfect, but nobody does that, it’s either folded over once or twice. So with cash folded over once, it does work, but it hangs off s little, you decide which way you want to place your cash.  Also, when you’re inserting cash under the band, it suffers from getting hung up on the cutouts of the metal, it’s always helpful if you have a flat surface to work with so it slides in easier.

Quality-wise this is a double sided stainless steel frame. It has 550 grade military para cord that wraps around it to that gives us this unique, tactical look. It comes in various anodized colors. There is a risk of it becoming unusable if the band breaks as there appears to be no real way to replace it. I didn’t see anything on their website about support in case something like that happened. You do have a lanyard, tether hole here.

They have this cleverly designed to shield credit card numbers while still showing your name or face for ID and it has an integrated bottle opener.  It’s easy to flaw the cards for access and to put them back in when not in use.

It measures 4.7” x 3.1” by .4” thin.  by 3.1. This is a great company from Poland. The price is $40, it’s designed and manufactured in Poland with free worldwide shipping. 

It’s a unique take on the very competitive band wallet market. They also make a carbon fiber version.

Now let’s get into the final score. For quality a 4, price a 4, features a 3, usability a 3 and perception a 3.  That leaves us with a final score of 3.5 out of 5 or 35 out of 50.
