ESR HaloLock line just got a Geo wallet and it’s on Kickstarter! What makes it stand out is the certified Find My apple support, MagSafe wallet with vegan leather that shames the Apple 2.0 Wallet.

Harland Handmade Emerson wallet

IT’S THAT GOOD! Harland Handmade Emerson REVIEW

As soon as I think we’ve seen the pinnacle of the perfect slim wallet, I come across another one. Harland Handmade has the Emerson slim wallet. In beautiful leather, this no stitch, origami wallet has the perfect balance, but does it have the magic?

Pakt Mojito wallet

Mocktail? Pakt Mojito Wallet REVIEW

There’s something about naming a wallet after an alcoholic drink, but when it’s a mocktail, all the wind is taken out of your sail. With today’s Pakt Mojito wallet review, we do have an interesting minimalist design from a faux, synthetic leather presentation. Vegan friendly, the wallet easily handles cards and emergency cash.


Gil-tek RAW v2; yes, that’s all, MORE or LESS?

Stop your complaining! Simple wallets can be great! The Gil-tek RAW v2 wallet is made in the USA in aluminum or titanium. Gil tek produces some of the best EDC like the Ruk with many positive reviews. If you’re looking for a card only wallet, for a quick night out on the town, this wallet is a winner, but beware the amount of cards you carry…

Pularys Raven wallet

Pularys RAVEN Wallet REVIEW; Never More!!

The Pularys Raven wallet review looks at one of the pop up wallets in the Pularys collection. With an extruded aluminum box, a leather extension is attached which holds cash, additional cards and coins, keys or anything else small. RFID protected, it’s still a slim card holder at a very attractive price. So what’s wrong with it?

Lost Dutchman Franklin Mini

Lost Dutchman Franklin MINI wallet; why go smaller?

The regular Lost Dutchman Franklin isn’t that big, so why do we all like the Franklin Mini wallet? It’s because of minimalism! If we can make it work by going smaller, then we’re all in! And so how does the Mini Franklin perform? Let’s take a look!

Domain Leather Huey wallet

Domain Leather Huey REVIEW; roomy and functional!

It’s something you’d say about your kitchen, “roomy and functional” but with the Domain Leather Huey wallet, it’s true. Instead of snaps, it uses a flap, all handmade using Wicket and Craig leather. This slim wallet can hold AirTags, coins, keys, whatever, while sill holding

Machine Era Ti5 wallet-w

Titanium wallet or RUBBER BAND? Machine Era Ti5 REVIEW

This wallet has been around a few years, but the design is simple and elegant. The Machine Era Ti5 titanium wallet is minimalist edc at its best. With excellent flexibility and insanely low weight, you won’t find a slim, metal wallet that does better, except maybe a rubber band?

Ohsnap SnapWallet

Ohsnap SnapWallet! BEST in its class!?

This Kickstarter project has finally arrived. It started as the MagSnap wallet, but during development was renamed the SnapWallet or Snap Wallet, all from Ohsnap, best known for their MagSafe and magnetic phone holders.

The SnapWallet is very minimal and thin, using very small and precise magnet placement created a modular stack system to mix and match the wallet components you want to carry.

Ezra Arthur Japanese wallet

Ezra Arthur Japanese wallet REVIEW; why is it ALL about coins?

Ezra Arthur wallet options have been pretty standard, but the new Ezra Arthur Japanese wallet takes Horween leather and produces an origami style coin pouch with card and cash capacity. Being handmade in the United States, it’s a great front pocket wallet. And remember, it’s inspired by Japanese wallets so coins are king.

Stuart and Lau Slim wallet-web

Stuart and Lau slim wallet REVIEW; interesting but worth it?

Created by two friends, one from New York and the other from Hong Kong, the Stuart and Lau Slim wallet is really a leather bifold, but represents its slim nature. With a billfold pocket that fits all international currencies and cleverly designed card slots, you’ll need to determine if the price is worth it to you.

Mitchell Leather LWCW

Mitchell Leather Wrap Card Wallet (LWCW); simplicity IMPROVED!

Wrap wallet options are plentiful, but can you improve on this simple design? Mitchell Leather, who makes the popular MCW, money clip wallet has created the Leather Wrap Card Wallet (LWCW). Minimalist in design, made in the USA from Horween Dublin leather, this card holder provides the refinements to make this a must have wallet.

Peak Design Slim Wallet

Peak Design Slim Wallet; minimalist PERFECTION?

I’ve been carrying the Peak Design Slim Wallet for a few weeks and find it to be the BEST MagSafe AND in general minimalist wallet I’ve carried. Why? It works with my mobile phone and as a stand lone wallet without looking odd. Capacity is impressive, with usability and access being elegant.

Andar Pilot wallet 2

Back to the ORIGINAL! Andar Pilot slim REVIEW

You might remember version 1 (v1) of the Andar Pilot and more recent v2 version which had a wheel mechanism to push the cards up. Version 2 was discontinued, but demand persisted around the success of v1. Andar responded by creating Pilot v3, a pop up, box wallet, with a leather sleeve, back to something that works!

Ogon Slider wallet

Knockoff or not? Ögon SLIDER slim wallet REVIEW

Like the Groove Life Wallet, the Ögon Slider wallet used an aluminium plate to slide up and present its cards. Different from the Ekster or SECRID card holder wallets, which use triggers, the slider is more efficient. However, the Ögon Slider is missing a way to carry cash. And then we find out it might be a knockoff! How many more things can we handle!?

Groove Wallet

GROOVE Wallet is okay, but I’ve got something better!

We review the Groove Wallet from Groove Life. A result of a Kickstarter campaign, it provides a new take on pop up or box wallets like the Ekster or SECRID. But it has a usability flaw that is pretty annoying which a competitor solved (Ogon Slider) with little effort and for half the price.

Ochre Handcrafted FLIP wallet

Trekkies Unite! Ochre Handcrafted FLIP slim wallet REVIEW

Looking like a Start Trek communicator, the Ochre Handcrafted FLIP wallet is well balanced, easy to use and unobtrusive in your pocket. The perfect quick access card and emergency card wallet, the handmade leather case is slim yet sufficient to carry your daily needs.

Fantom X wallet

Fantom X wallet slim REVIEW; the BEST Fantom made SO FAR?!

Look no further, you’ve found the BEST wallet Fantom has created so far, the Fantom X. It takes all the learnings from the Fantom C MagSafe and Fantom R wallets into a small, easy to carry, minimalist wallet.

I compare the Fantoms R, Fantom C and Fantom X to show why the Fantom X wallet is the best Ansix Designs has ever made.

Mous MagSafe wallet

NO MORE Slip and Slide; Mous MagSafe wallet TECH

Mous is famous for their phone cases which provide excellent drop protection. They also provide MagSafe cases and have released a Mous MagSafe wallet in a card version with horizontal slots. Apple MagSafe wallets used on their iPhones, created opportunity for many vendors including Moft, Andar, Anson Calder, Distil Union, Ekster, Fantom and others.

What makes the Mous MagSafe wallet so different is how they solve the slipping and sliding that MagSafe wallets do when on an iPhone. Simple, but brilliant!

Lever Gear Toolcard Pro

USELESS features? Lever Gear Toolcard Pro EDC REVIEW

Nothing like a well-made wallet multitool to make those small EDC problems easy to solve. The Lever Gear Toolcard Pro includes a money clip and includes 40 different tools, but some are a stretch unless you’re a drafting student…

Lost Dutchman Leather Franklin

BEST Lost Dutchman wallet? The Franklin NO STITCH slim wallet REVIEW

The Franklin is the latest offering from Lost Dutchman Leather and it’s a winner! Being a non-stitch type wallet, there is no sewing, it’s all done through folds and clever cuts. As a minimalist wallet, it’s handmade and great edc addition and performs as a cash wrap for much less money than its brother the Lost Dutchman Big Finn.

Monbue One wallet

Can luxury be overpriced? Monbue One slim wallet REVIEW

What is luxury and what is a brand? We have a great example with the Monbue One wallet from Austria. A slim, metal, box -wallet similar to Ekster and SECRID, it handles cash, coin and cards via a spring loaded pop up mechanism.
