Top 9 wallets for a Gentleman
09 Best Minimalist Wallets.
The market for minimalist wallets pretty much exploded in the past 5 years — especially on the Kickstarter scene — where each new minimalist wallet design became slimmer than the previous one — trying to pack as much stuff as possible in a slim design that would barely produce a bulge in the tightest of back pockets.
Some slim wallets were hot, some were not, and some even came with a built-in bottle openers, knives, and screw drivers. Here is the list of a few wallets i’ve tried and used myself.
1.Dango Tactical EDC Wallet
The Dango Tactical EDC Wallet is a wallet that allows you all of the convenience of a large wallet with the usefulness of having a multitool nearby. This durable wallet is made out of top grain leather and weighs next to nothing. It is able to accommodate all of your most important business cards, debit cards or credit cards with its abundant twelve card slots. The Dango Tactical EDC Wallet comes with a multitool that is crafted out of 6061 aerospace grade CNC aluminum that will allow the multitool to outlast the years and ensures that they will not break while in use, no matter how often you need to use them. This multitool comes with a saw, a paracord tensioner, a knife, a 10/15 millimeter hex, a nail pryer, a smartphone stand, a ruler and so much more.
Perfect for traveling abroad, you can stay safe and feel confident in the security of your financial information found on your cards. This is because of the protective RFID blocker that is built right into the wallet. This RFID blocker will stop those with RFID readers and malicious intent from accessing your personal information. Durable and rugged, this Dango Tactical EDC Wallet can go anywhere you go, whether that means down the street, out on the hiking trail or abroad to another country.
– Handsome leather design. The wallet comes with a beautiful exterior that makes it not only rugged but attractive as well. It is made out of durable top grain leather that affords it not only its durability but its sleek nature.
– Multitool. While it is a practical and useful wallet all on its own, it is also one that can serve as a number of other helpful tools. These tools can get you out of a sticky situation while traveling or exploring the outdoors while also making small jobs around the house more convenient and doable.
– RFID Blocking. Whether you plan to go abroad or just down to main street for some shopping or errands, the Dango Tactical EDC Wallet can protect your personal information and finances. It uses RFID blocking that can stop anyone from taking your information with an RFID reader.
– Won’t pass airport customs. Because it does have the multitool that possesses sharp objects, it likely won’t pass the security screening at an airport, so you may have to ship it to the address that you will be at in the other country. You could also just check it in your bag instead of taking it with you on the actual flight itself.
