Building off their first successful OG wallet, the Trayvax OG 2.0 is feature packed in a simple footprint that makes you smile very time you take it out.

The Trayvax OG 2.0 is the next generation of Trayvax’s original that got them started in the wallet world. It’s been in happy customers’ pockets for some time now, but let’s get into it ourselves.
Nice instructions come in the packaging demonstrating how it works, as all Trayvax wallets require instructions. They’re designed that way, probably, and this is no different. It consists of two metal plates connected by paracord. And again, the designs of Trayvax just amaze me. They’re really involved. And if you like that, it’s great, if not, then it might be a struggle, but when you get it all configured, they do function really well, and this one is no different. The OG 2.0 is a very popular model, not only because of its price, which is excellent, but also because it operates well.
Once the paracord has been loosened and adjusted for the number of cards you want to carry, insert the cards in between the metal plates. Included with the metal plates is a bottle opener, pry tool, attachment point and a money clip. Folding your cash twice will get it into the money clip portion. Overall, the design is very simple. I think the most complex part of this comes down to the setup, I had to get a screwdriver to shimmy under the paracord and metal plates to pull the paracord out, it’s a tough pinch point.
Reasonable card carry is 3 to 8 cards, the company mentions it can handle up to 15 plus cash, which would work easily. From a quality perspective, it’s designed and manufactured in the United States. The plates are made of aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel, with MIL-SPEC paracord. MIL-SPEC, everybody likes to use MIL-SPEC things, but doesn’t really denote quality. The term just means that it meets military specification, which could be garbage. So don’t think that the term MIL-SPEC means anything special.
The OG 2.0 comes in four colors, and a G10 model, which is a high pressure fiberglass laminate, often used in knife handles. So the resulting wallet is light weight.
The price of the wallet is $30, which is a great price for what you get. I believe the price is part of the popularity of this particular model. The scallops, which are the finger notches in the metal plates, provide an easy way to hold the wallet. It’s attention to details as part of the design that make it stand out.
If you do carry this with other items, they could get damaged because this is just metal. I mean, you just have to be smart about that with any kind of metal-based wallet. And this is recommended in my mind as a front pocket wallet.
It measures 4.13 x 2.63 x 0.48” and it weighs 68 grams. All Trayvax wallets provide a 65 year heirloom warranty. Every Trayvax wallet has a unique thought out design, great ingenuity is part of this as well. No two are the same. If you’ve ever wondered how each Trayvax wallet compares to each other, they have an awesome graphic on their website outlining all the capabilities, materials, and features.
This wallet is the second generation of their successful OG 1.0 wallet done via Kickstarter. Yes, they too are a Kickstarter company. They sell wallets. Everybody who sells wallets seem to come out of Kickstarter.
No onto the final score. For quality, a 4, price, a 5, features, a 3 usability, a 3. If the paracord was easier to adjust, I think usability would be higher, and perception, a four. That gives us a final score of 39 out of 50
