Summer can be hard on a man’s wallet. It’s exposed to salt water, sand, chlorine and more. My husband’s regular leather wallet doesn’t deserve all that abuse, so I began looking into a better option for him.
What I found was the Flowfold wallets from LifeTheReal. They are actually made from reclaimed sailcloth. How’s that for weatherproof?
Flowfold sailcloth wallets have many unique characteristics that set them apart from traditional wallets:
- Thin: A flowfold adds only 5.83 hundredths of an inch to your stash, this addition is less than the thickness of two credit cards.
- Extremely light: A flowfold weighs in at 16 grams (the weight of 3 sheets of 8.5x 11 paper).
- Durable: Several times the strength of steel at a fraction of the weight. The fibers in the composite laminate fabrics we use are made of carbon, aramid(kevlar) and pentex.
- Washable and quick-dry (made from waterproof material).
- Vegan friendly, no animal products used here.
- Plenty of room for your stash: 2 ID windows, 2 card pockets (2-14 cards), 1 main “cash stash” pocket.
- Available in 12 colorways.
I couldn’t believe how thin and lightweight this wallet is. With so many pockets, there is room for everything. This is a great option for a trip to the beach. Without having to ditch your wallet entirely, you can bring your id, a credit card and some cash stored safely in a durable wallet.
BUY IT! Made in Maine, USA, the sailcloth wallets from LifeTheReal ranges in price from $26.00-$28.00 depending on your color choice. Shipping is FREE.
