EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

Beyond bottle opener distraction the Trayvax’s Element is an excellent choice!

Made from stainless steel and full-grain leather, the materials are excellent as are all of Trayvax’s wallets. With an adjustable leather component to accommodate more cards and a great cash clip/strap, cards and cash are secure. The only oddity is the protrusion of the bottle opener and lanyard eyelet. As a potential to scratch up other items in the same pocket and poke holes in pants, it’s an odd design element…but you get a bottle opener out of it!

Today we are going to open and do a review on the Trayvax Element wallet. Trayvax has a great line of wallets. This comes in a paper kind of origami box. Several of their products do, which is a great way to not create bulk and it is recyclable, which is nice.  This is the black color. They all have unique designs to them and are all very individual in how they set them up. This one is no different than that. 

The following is the feature review of the Trayvax Element wallet. The Trayvax has a lot of different aspects to it. It has a metal piece that goes down and is really the rigidity of the entire wallet itself and is wrapped in leather. From the front there is a quick thumb push slot that allows you to push cards out. There is an eyelet on top in case you want to use that for a lanyard. There is also a bottle opener as well.  When we turn the wallet over, we see that it has a secure strap. This is what wraps around, holds the back end and secures it. On the back there is a money clip. 

Now for the card and cash insertion test. I was able to get 4 cards plus 5 slips of cash folded over twice. This is made of a full grain leather, and because of that, the company says it can hold 3 to 10 cards and 1 to 5 slips of cash. I am not going to measure it, because it is leather and has the capacity to stretch over time. It is not really supposed to be super thin because it has different components to it. There is a break-in period of stretching it out. They have instructions on how you can do this more quickly by soaking the leather, putting in what you want, put in a number of cards and letting it go from there. But remember, once you’ve stretched the leather, you can’t go back, so start with fewer cards and work up from there. The wallet is designed and made in the United States. It is top grain leather wrap. It also has a Mil-Spec paracord and stainless steel frame with a Melonite finish on it. It does have RFID protection and is priced at $74, which is average for this type of wallet.

The wallet measures 4.5 x 2.5 x 0.5”.  It does have a 65-year heirloom warranty. All Trayvax products do. Therefore they back up their products. They are all made in the United States and have very unique designs without a doubt. 

For the final score. For quality, a 5. Price a 2. Features a 3. Usability a 3 and perception a 4. That gives us a final score of 36 out of 50.
