EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

Is the Trayvax Summit Notebook too small to be useful?

Adding wonderful leather to the existing Armor Summit wallet frame, the Trayvax Summit Wallet adds a tried and true Fisher Bullet pen to a small notebook to provide something capable of jotting some ideas down on. But does the size make all the extra bulk worth it?

Today we are going to review the Summit Notebook bifold. Like most of their high end Trayvax wallets, they come in a nice origami style box. It is very light in nature, folds, and is recyclable. This wallet is made of great leather. It has a metal component in the back, and has a Fisher bullet pen for taking notes. It is quite the little package and has a rather small footprint.

The following are the features of the Summit Notebook bifold. There is a lot going on in this small package. The entire wallet is about the size of a card. On the outside front, there are not any particular features. On the side there is a Fisher bullet pen, which is used for note taking. When we turn it over, the back of the Summit is a metal piece, but there is no storage or anything else. When we open the wallet we have a notebook on the left hand side. This notebook is placed inside a card slot so you can use it to take notes, or remove it and use the slot for cards or cash. 

As for the card and cash insertion test, the company doesn’t say how many cards it can hold. It could probably do a slight adjustment to the strap in the back which would accommodate more cards.  I think five cards is a real comfortable maximum for this. We also got five slips of cash behind the notebook, folded over twice. 

The Summit Notebook is designed and made in the USA. The product is made from Horween leather, which comes from the Horween Tannery in Chicago. It feels and smells really good. The Summit portion of metal comes from the Armored Summit wallet. The price on this is $80. I like the pen, which is a Fisher bullet space pen. My problem is with the cap. Small pens should not have a cap, as they can be easily lost. If you are a chronic note taker, then this is a great option for you. The footprint is really small and can carry all of the essential credit cards, and some cash that you need. Be aware that the notepad is just two inches by three inches. It’s not for novel taking. It really is for quick notes. I didn’t find any problems having the notepad and then putting cash in the back slot. As is the case with almost all Trayvax wallets, we see the unique design and implementation of features that you get from all of their products. They are all very individual. It measures 3.5 x 3 x .75”, and Trayvax has a 65-year heirloom warranty on all their wallets, so they are built to last. It also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. 

For the final score. For quality a 4, price a 2, features a 4, usability a 3, and perception a 3. That gives us a final score of 32 out of 50.
