Do large bulky wallets still have a function today? Let’s face it very few transactions are by cash these days, most are by card, and more and more by smartphone or watch. So do you still need to carry around a bulky wallet designed for carrying notes? I have down sized over recent years, to just a card holder and a few notes held in place with a money clip, but there are some better more attractive and functional options available.
The wallet market is really hot with new start-ups manufacturing great minimalist solutions to allow you to carry your valuables securely, without the bulk of a traditional leather wallet.
Here are a couple of examples
The Ridge is a quality product comprising a 2 piece hard back and front, clam-shelled with an elastic strap. It’s a cool looking wallet with the outer pieces made from a range of great materials:
There are two options for holding notes, an external money clip or an additional elastic strap to secure the notes in place.
The screws and elastic are replaceable, and you get a tool provided for this purpose
Prices range from $85 AUD for the aluminium version up to $ 136 AUD for the titanium or carbon fibre. Plus a little extra for a money clip
Good news is The Ridge ship free to Australia, or pay a little extra for an expedited shipment
