Open-and-Shut Case

Take cards and cash on the go without the bag, or the bulk. The inspiration for this ingenious little sleeve all started when designer Dave Zuverink set out to construct a slim, yet super strong, wallet to contain all of his essentials without creating a big bulge in his back pocket. In his search, he discovered Tyvek®, a rip-resistant material that, when folded, is still less than half the thickness of its fabric and leather counterparts.

After creating over 100 prototypes, Dave emerged with a sleek, eco-friendly solution to his conundrum. His bi-fold wallets have a large central flap for storing cash, 6 slots for cards, and a window to keep your license or id on view. The completely recyclable Tyvek material contains 25% post-consumer recycled content. It's printed with earth-friendly, zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) ink using a process that requires no water. A professional, local tailor stitches and assembles each finished wallet in California.

Dave Zuverink became obsessed with finding a wallet that was thin enough to go in his front pocket along with an iPhone without creating a big bulge. As he describes, "I refined the design by creating over 100 prototypes, learning to sew in the process. I carried versions around with me for over a year to test out various design alternatives."

In addition to its durability and light weight, Dave chose Tyvek for its environmental benefits. Technically a sheet plastic, it's made from 25% post-consumer recycled material and is 100% recyclable.

Originally trained in Industrial Design, Dave went on to become an interaction designer in Silicon Valley. He says, "I really enjoyed turning back to my product design roots to create the SlimFold!"

    Comments about SLIMFOLD WALLET:

    Great layout for a slim design but needs to be built with better materials. My SlimFold Original ended up looking like a crinkled piece of paper after a few weeks.

    I then started to become embarrassed on how the thing looked when I would pull my wallet out in public.

      Comments about SLIMFOLD WALLET:

      Great form factor - super slim. Held my 4 credit cards snugly. However, after approximately 2 months of usage, it is quite ragged. I treat my wallets with care so my conclusion is that it is just not suitable for everyday use. I would use this as a secondary wallet for special occasions when I need something super thin but I cannot recommend this as an everyday wallet. My wife finally told me to switch back to my old wallet as she was embarrassed by the tattered look of the SlimFold.

        Awesome wallet! Only concern is credit card pockets may tear, but they've held up perfectly going on 3 weeks so far.

          I bought these for my 30 year old sons and husband and they really liked them. I was worried they'd be too thin and not hold enough but they have enough pockets for all their cards and cash. AND - even filled the wallet was slimmer than their old ones with nothing in them. I bought brown, green and blue. The primary colors are as bright and snazzy as shown and the brown looks leatherish. A great deal at a very good price. I'm happy.

          Cons

          • Looks Shoddy After A Few Months
          • Won't Hold Cards Safely

          Best Uses

            Comments about SLIMFOLD WALLET:

            I liked the design a lot at first, but I should have listened to the reviews that said it does not hold up well. After a couple of months, it started looking very shoddy. A few days ago, I noticed two of my cards were missing. Thank goodness they were not valuable, but what if it had been my debit card or my ID? Now I'm shopping for another, better, thin wallet.
            What really angers me about this, is that the inventor must know what happens to this wallet after just a few months. Which makes me call into question the whole Kickstarter thing, which is where I first heard about this wallet. I didn't buy it there, I wanted a slightly different configuration, but both are made of Tyvek, and both would have the same problem with keeping their shape.
            From now on, I think I'll leave Tyvek to FedEx, and kick starter to the other suckers!

              Clever idea, but packaging is cheap looking. Was a gift, so cannot attest to ability to hold a lot and keep small size. Had to add to gift to make it seem more substantial.

              My husband would always remove his wallet from his pocket when driving because it would hurt his back/hip after a while of sitting on it. This lightweight, slim wallet was much appreciated by him.

                The wallet is amazingly thin. Thinner that I expected. I was very happy with that.

                However, the card slots don't hold their shape at all. After using my card twice, the pocket for it is really loose now.

                I wouldn't recommend this product.

                  I loved this wallet at first. So slim and functional. Amazing. But after 6 months the card slots had relaxed so much that every time I took the wallet out my cards would go flying out all over the floor. And I NEVER put more than one card in a slot. So it's great, but only if you feel like replacing it 2 or 3 times a year.
