I'm not sure I'm sold on this particular design concept replacing the traditional wallet. While it is more compact, the ease of access definitely suffers as a result. I'm not crazy about putting my bills exposed under the clip. Like wearing a sign: Please take my money! :-) However, like I mentioned above, at least this wallet goes the extra mile by providing a separate money clip so you can keep your bills secure and hidden in a separate pocket.
Fidelo is made from the highest quality, Grade 3 Carbon Fiber. This minimalist wallet is stronger than steel, it’s totally resilient against scratches and scrapes and will last for years, we mean YEARS, to come. This little guy allows you to carry up to fifteen (15) cards effortlessly with no bulk or ugly pocket bulge (*hint, it’s meant to be carried in your front pocket). In a world where scammers are rampant, and safety is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, this wallet comes with RFID protection to ensure your security is always first priority. Another cool feature (which really makes the wallet) is the integrated elastic billfold band that comes in a variety of colors. It adds an extra dimension to this wallet foe storage, flexibility, etc…
Blending rich materials with modern technology, the Slim Wallet offers everything you’d want from a sub-luxury wallet.

Further proof that you don’t need space-age materials to create a minimalist wallet, American Bench Craft’s Hammer Riveted Billfold uses traditional materials and techniques but doubles down on slimming down. It uses no linings, glue, or stitching — instead opting for a simple construction of premium leather and brass rivets. Yet it can still hold 4+ cards, cash, and more. And it was made in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty.
I am satisfied with this purchase. It was meant as a replacement for my previous "money clip". This "wallet" is way slimmer than my previous one. It came with no instructions, so at first I thought I had to disassemble or assemble it. As it came with a "screwdriver" and two replacement screws. It does not require this. It is just difficult to open. This wallet might be easier to open and use over time. Although, right now, it is difficult to open and get the specific card you need unless you only have two cards.
– Ultra thin. Measuring only 2.75 inches in width by 4 inches in height, this small wallet can easily fit into any of your pockets without creating an unsightly bulge.

Carbon fiber is a wonderful and desirable material — both for its superb physical properties (like being ultra-tough without being metallic) and its iconic appearance. And the patented Hell-Bent 2.5 Wallet capitalizes it on it brilliantly. It’s minimalist and slim enough to slip into your front pocket, tough enough to weather any adventure, and has a handy cutout that makes accessing your cards a snap.
If you wanted to describe this wallet in one word, it would be elite, although the “E” on the elastic band stands for Ekster. Let’s start with the ultra-slim profile, which nonetheless accommodates 7 cards, cash, and coins. Then there’s the push-button card ejector so you don’t have to go digging for plastic. How about RFID/NFC blocking, or a solar-powered tracker that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth? On top of all that, it’s made from environmentally-friendly leather.
