The people at SlimFold Wallet recently approached me about trying one of their products and I jumped at the chance. A week or so ago I took a ride with my friend Bob and, while riding, I realized I had forgotten to remove my wallet and put it in my tank bag. Ordinarily I like to keep it on me at all times but it was hot and it always feels better not sitting on a thick bump in my back pocket. I ended up removing it while I rode, not the safest idea. So the timing was perfect for me to try the SlimFold and I have to say, I’m quite pleased and impressed.
Made of Tyvek (which is printed in colors with a tactile feel somewhat like coated paper) or soft shell (the version I tested which has more of a wet-suit feel) from recycled material and nearly impossible to tear and waterproof the SlimFold is barely noticeable in my pocket. In fact the first few days I used it I kept thinking I had left my wallet behind somewhere.
Stitching along the fold allows the Slimfold to easily stay closed (unlike leather wallets) which contributes to its slim feel. I assumed I’d use the SlimFold only on the motorcycle but it’s quickly become my only wallet. I no longer need to find room in my minuscule bicycle bag and I can work all day with it in my pocket without ever noticing it. If you’re tired of lugging around a thick wallet do yourself a favor and checkout the offerings at SlimFold. You’ll be glad you did.
