Deal Of The Day: 27% Off On A3 Wallet

redesign_a3_mf

We see our fair share of wallets at OhGizmo, and very few offer the innovation their marketing material suggests. The A3 wallet on the other hand is kind of interesting. It consists of three aluminum plates held together with two large O-rings. Your cards and cash is meant to be sandwiched between these plates, and easily accessed by simply pulling them apart. The elastic nature of the O-rings means you have flexibility and can stash quite a bit of stuff in there, while remaining slim and unobtrusive. Since it’s made of aluminum, you also do get some RFID blocking capabilities. If you take a second to watch the video, you’ll see this is actually a pretty cool wallet. Normally you’d have to pay $47 to own it, but this special brings it down to $33.99.

This Gerber Money Clip Also Packs A Blade

gerber-blade-money-clip

We’re not exactly sure what sort of scenario would call for someone to be able to pull a blade out of their money clip, but that’s exactly what we’re looking at here with the Gerber 31-002521 GDC Money Clip. You can carry a couple of cards and bills on the one side, and a titanium nitride coated steel blade with a G10 front plate on the other. Measuring only 3.6 inches, it’s relatively discreet, while tipping the scales at a paltry 2.9 ounces. $30 and it’s yours.

Brewclip Is A Slim Wallet With A Beer Bottle Opener

brewclip

Slim wallets are in, as we’ve mentioned on the website multiple times. Manufacturers know this, so they’re always coming up with some variation of design to try and entice shoppers. Today’s flavour is called the Brewclip. It holds up to 5 credit cards, has a money clip on one side, and is made from a laser-cut stainless steel core and either a 3D printed plastic or a wood grain outer layer. Better yet, it includes a slide-out bottle opener, which any self-respecting college student will realize can come in handy in almost any situation.

The Kickstarter campaign is fully funded and as a matter of fact is almost completely sold out. As of this writing there are a few left at the $59 and $79 price points, which give you a late batch Brew Blip and a regular/wood grain pair of BrewClips, respectively.

The Multi Is A Swiss Army Wallet

multi-wallet

It’s called the Multi and it’s a wallet made from a sandwich of die-cut Aluminum or Titanium plates. But its wallet duties are kind of a sideshow to everything else it does:

It can also be used as a flat or Phillips head screwdriver, a nested wrench (in SAE or metric), a two-inch ruler, a bottle opener, a twist top opener, a wing nut wrench, a smartphone tablet stand, a can top popper, a box opener, and a keychain.

Using it as a smartphone or tablet stand will require a few steps. The middle piece keeps the tablet propped up, and the credit card on the inside sticks out to keep the tablet or smartphone in place while the device is in use.

It’s also RFID blocking and TSA approved. The fully-funded Kickstarter campaign will allow you to pre-order an Aluminum version for $40 or a Titanium one for $75, with delivery in July of this year.

DASH Wallet Lets You Use Card Without Taking It Out

There are lots of companies trying to make a better wallet. Any improvement over the scoliosis-inducing mammoths we carry today is welcome, and the DASH wallet pictured above is one of our favorites. It’s a slim wallet that intends for you to carry the essentials, and in this it’s fairly banal. But what sets it apart is the little window on the side of its “quickdraw compartment” that allows you to partially push out one card so that the magnetic stripe is exposed, and use it without actually taking it out. Everyone has that one card that they use all the time; set that one in the quickdraw slot and save, well… not a lot of time, but hey: it’s the convenience. There is another slot for a few more cards, and yet a third one for cash.

Fully loaded it appears to be not much more than half an inch thick. It’s made from black elastic fabric, and recycled materials and will cost you a $24 pledge on the almost sold out Kickstarter campaign.

Killspencer Card Carrier Is Slick

Guys, let’s face it: thick wallets are out. This much we’ve said before, and we’ll be happy to say it again. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for gear like the Killspencer Card Carrier, above. It turns your iPhone 5 into a barebones, essentials-only, card carrier. Fitting only 4 cards (1 license, 2 credit cards, and 1 debit card), the carrier adds very little width to your phone, and does so with class.

[It is made] of Natural Oil-Tanned Leather and Macassar Ebony Wood, and is lined with the finest Italian-made Alcantara® Suede Endoskeleton, with a thumb port cut for easy access.

It sticks to the back of the phone with an adhesive, and can be easily removed. It’s elegant, efficient, and we really like it, but is obviously reserved for those of us who have the courage to leave home with the bare essentials. If that’s your thing, you’ll have to part with $69 to own one.

TGT Wallet Is Another Take On Minimal

The type of wallet you choose as well as where you decide to stash it (front vs. rear pocket) is a topic of endless discussion in some circles. But there’s no denying that the growing trend is to go minimal and carry only the essentials in the front pocket; the George Costanza types are a dying breed. Capitalizing on the movement is the TGT (which stands for “Tight”) wallet seen above: “The TGT 1.0 is a simple wallet made of rare high quality elastic. The TGT 2.0 adds a pocket made of fine Italian leather.” And that, really, is it. With an effort in restraint, you can select only your essential plastic and some paper money and not have to worry about herniating a vertebral disc from sitting on an overstuffed wallet again. The TGT wallet is fully funded on Kickstarter… 5 times over actually, and at $16 and $32, you’ll still have plenty of that paper money left to carry around in it after you’ve placed your order. Better yet, it’s apparently not too late to order it in time for the Holidays.

Biometric Carbon Fiber Wallet Opens Just For You

By David Ponce

Now this is a badass wallet right here. Made out of tough carbon fiber, it features a fingerprint sensor so that only you can open it. Also, it can be linked via Bluetooth to your phone so that if ever the two are separated by more than 5 meters, it will ring an alarm. This makes it much harder to lose both the wallet and the phone. “The interior features a luxurious leather credit card holder and a strong stainless steel money clip.”

Of course, carbon fiber biometric Bluetooth enabled wallets can’t be cheap. This one certainly isn’t, at $825. So it turns out that you’ll have a great looking wallet; it’ll just be empty.
