Today we are reviewing the Trayvax Contour which is the pinnacle of Trayvax’s line. This thing has amazing engineering to it. Trayvax is a great little company. They have different packaging based on the different wallets. This one is a great little origami style. 

I was able to insert 8 cards and 7 slips of cash in the back. It wasn’t a problem. The cash needed to be folded twice, which increases the bulk, but it will work with all international currency. The company indicates it can hold up to 13 cards and 10 bills, which I think is really pushing the hex screw adjustment to its maximum, and would probably require the leather to stretch a bit too. 

For quality, this is designed and handmade in the United States. It is a CNC stainless steel plate. It has PVD coating for durability. PVD is a variety of thin film deposition techniques where solid material is vaporized in a vacuum environment and then deposited onto the stainless steel plate as a pure material or alloy composition coating, so it’s really quite advanced. The Horween leather that is used is a top grain oil tanned leather. Horween, of course, is a tannery out of Chicago. This can be engraved and has the ability to add additional straps for variety if you want to do that. The pricing on this is $140. Again, this is Trayvax’s premium wallet offering and is really a cool wallet.

Measurements on this are 3.8 x 2.4 x 0.5”.  They have a 65 year heirloom build warranty on the wallet. Technically, it is a very interesting wallet and has a very clever design, however, cards that come into contact with the CNC portion do have a tendency to become scratched. Therefore be careful. The customer support appears to be a real challenge for the company at times, but besides that, this is a real clever wallet. 

For quality a 5, price a 2, features a 3, usability a 4, and perception a 4. That gives us a final score of 38 out of 50.
