On a Power Trip.

So, you've rounded up your cash and cards in your wallet, but do you really need to strap on that huge messenger bag to take your electronics along, too? Not anymore. Atlanta-based artist Brook Kirk brings the electronics organizer into the twenty-first century with this multi-functional tri-fold case.

This versatile gadget holder provides a hand-sewn spot for you to tuck folded bills and cards as well as on-the-go electronics. The Australian Merino wool felt interior has convenient pockets that are made to accommodate valuables like your guitar picks, lip balm, jewelry, flash drive, SD card, iPhone, Blackberry or Droid and earbuds. Wool felt is also naturally antimicrobial and water repellent so it'll wick away light moisture while protecting delicate surfaces and touchscreens. When closed, the elastic band keeps your essentials securely in place in an interfacing, reinforced plaid fabric jacket. The integrated swivel lobster clasp allows you to clip this all-in-one gadget wallet to your bag or keys. Handmade in the USA.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

This original design was created for my musician husband who has tiny valuables (guitar picks, SD cards, prongs, connectors, and USB devices) that desperately needed a round up. As the design evolved, it quickly became clear that I too had copious amounts of little odds and ends that needed to be organized. I took one of my gadget wallets on a business trip and was instantly hooked. Not only did I have my smartphone, thumb drive, ID, hotel key, credit card for lunch and a lip balm all at the ready but I also had a place to hook my rental car keys and stash my receipts for the day! It may not be large enough to store everything you need for a trip, but it is the perfect little carry-all for the essentials. The large pocket even fits a passport! As a software analyst, I still love to take my Nerd Herder Gadget Wallet on business trips but now I take it with me everywhere, every day. I keep all of my essentials in it for quick trips to the store or any time I don't feel like lugging around a large bag.

Disappointment

By 

from Fort Bragg, CA

About Me Casual Dresser

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Good Workmanship
  • High Quality

Cons

  • Low Functionality
  • Not Enough Storage
  • Poor Design

Best Uses

  • None That I Can Think Of

Comments about NERD HERDER GADGET WALLETS:

I bought two, one for me and one for my boyfriend as a Christmas present. One came gift-wrapped (the wrong one), and one didn't. Upon examination, while the workmanship is excellent, there aren't many functional pockets or places to put anything. I can't see how I could possibly use this. My boyfriend wasn't interested either. So I will be returning both.

Needs to be a bit smaller, yet with more pockets inside.
It is great quality, though and will be quite suitable for my grandson's needs.

Solid Purchase

By

Pros

  • Elastic band holds tight
  • Functional
  • Lots of Pockets
  • Stylish
  • Super useful

Cons

  • Stitching came loose

Best Uses

  • San Diego Comic Con
  • Travel

Comments about NERD HERDER GADGET WALLETS:

This is a great product. In one part the stitching came apart, but it is easily fixable and doesn't seem likely to happen in any other areas.

The fabric is awesome- all equipment (SD card, cell phone battery, etc.) is protected from scratching and is held tightly enough that you don't have to worry about it slipping out.

It is on the expensive side, but if you need something to hold your nerdy gadgety stuff then it's definitely worth it.

Comments about NERD HERDER GADGET WALLETS:

I really enjoy this wallet. It has a million pockets or sleeves to stash things in, and it's basically exactly what I've always wanted but have never been able to find. It feels very durable and well-made so the high quality is evident. The plaid fabric is really fun and goes with everything in the sense that it doesn't really go with anything...just works as an eclectic addition to an outfit. My ONLY issue with it is that the pocket where your large electronic item is supposed to go is just a little bit too small depth-wise. I got this item so I could carry my iPhone in that pocket, and I find it just a little bit hard to get it in there. I tried taking the hard case off the phone, and it did fit a lot better, but I am too much of a klutz to not have a case on my phone. If you were going to get this for an iPod or other small mp3 player that didn't need a case, it wouldn't be an issue at all. And I have been using the pocket anyway, just pushing hard to get it in there, but I worry a little bit about the fabric stretching out or the stitches loosening over time. Like I said it does seem very durable though so I'm hoping for the best. I also wish there were an outer pocket that you could get to without taking the elastic band off, because I am worried about the elastic stretching out over time, and because I'd like to be able to grab my Metrocard without undoing everything. But these are personal preferences. Bottom line it's a really nice piece and I would buy it again knowing what I know now. Recommended.

      Comments about NERD HERDER GADGET WALLETS:

      I got this for my husband for father's day and he has not had a new wallet for 16 years but I think just the title of it made him willing to try it because he's a big Star Wars fan. He really likes it and has commented many times on how great it is that he can keep so much stuff in there and it fits in all the pockets of his jeans and shorts etc. He has had 2 complaints- the first that there isn't a long cash slot just a short square so he has to fold his money and then put it in which is probably fine for money clip kind of people or those who never carry cash. Also the two slots available are on opposite ends of the wallet one opening to the top and one opening to the bottom so he puts his phone in the one facing the bottom and when he goes to take his wallet out, a lot of times his phone just simply falls out- so that doesn't feel too secure. but at the same time he's really enjoying having a place to put all of his stuff without needing a man bag- he's not a man bag kind of guy. Overall he loves it and its smaller and more functional than what he had before- plus it's supporting artists- what more could you ask for?

      Basically a wallet. Very dissapointed with product simply because it would not store anything the least bit bulky. Sent back today for a refund.

        Good not great

        By 

        from Tampa Bay, FL

        About Me Trendy/Stylish Dresser

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Perfect for gadgets

        Cons

        • Clip broke off first week
        • No Place for Money
        • Not Enough Storage

        Best Uses

        • As a secondary wallet

        Comments about NERD HERDER GADGET WALLETS:

        This is a great concept that needs tweaking. If it just had a pocket behind all the gadget pockets like a typical bifold it would be close to perfect. Also, the clasp/clip that I attach keys to broke off the first week under normal wear.
