Trayvax’s Ascent wallet is a special kind of minimalist product. It isn’t for the minimalist who wants to slim their pockets and minimize the weight of their loadout. Instead, Trayvax has armed the Ascent to delight the customer who wants an ultra-tough wallet that matches their minimal lifestyle and can last for the long-haul while looking good, too.
Rambler Made checks all the right boxes: modern minimalist design, high quality leather, superb workmanship, and an attractive tan that will patina beautifully with use. The Scout wallet will make the perfect match for someone who digs handmade leather goods and takes pride in their minimalist lifestyle.
The Micro Soft Shell is one of the thinnest and most durable wallets we’ve reviewed yet. If you’re in the market for a thin bifold wallet, the Micro should be on your short list. Their other wallets are also worth taking a look at which feature same material it other slim designs.
Bellroy’s Sleeve product line is a colorful assortment of well-made wallets with thoughtful designs and feature layouts. Both wallets are modern takes on the traditional bi-fold design. It’s surprising how thin these wallets stay no matter how many cards, bills, and coins are held inside.
The Dash Bando wallet has a unique flat design that has the ability to store many cards in a very slim profile. The pull tab slot is also a really nice touch (I’m a big fan of these in wallets). It however falls short in the finishing department with loose stitching. The cash band holds bills a little too loosely for my liking. I would not recommend this for front pocket carry, it’s a bit on the larger side and wont fit well into smaller front pockets.
Trayvax stands behind their wallet with pride – and it’s for a good reason. The material selection and build quality is above average and the design is simple and intuitive to use. Backed by a 65 year warranty (which even offers out of warranty repairs at cost plus shipping) this wallet could easily last someone a lifetime.
The Dash Slim Wallet 3.0 is put together well and designed with minimalism in mind. As long as you’re not a heavy card carrier you would be happy with this wallet. Not to mention, this wallet is cheap making it one of my favorite budget friendly minimalist wallets to date.
