Flowfold Minimalist Wallet | An Adventure of a Lifetime Kinda Wallet

I always love to try wallets which aren’t my personal everyday style. I often favour, to my own discredit, wallets made for a more luxury market. Wallets made from high premium leather or exotic materials. Over the past month i’ve had the opportunity to try something a little different. The Flowfold Minimalist Wallet. As a brand Flowfold are built on the concept of adventure and raw outdoor adventure. In all honestly i’m a big fan of the brand and they seem very passionate about what they do and what they stand for. As for the Flowfold Minimalist wallet (which henceforth simply be referred to as Flowfold) has a lot going for it.

Look & Appearance

The first thing that stands out about the Flowfold is its distinctive design. Being made from actual high performance racing sailcloth this unusual material has a textured appearance to it that’s both durable and lightweight. It definitely feels like what i’d imagine sailcloth to be like a bumpy and rugged feel probably due to its Ballistic nylon webbing. If one things for sure this is without a shadow of a doubt a material that can tackle the environmental and elements with ease. The Flowfold comes in a small variety of different colours. I got my hands on the White & Cyan, but they’re also available in 5 other vibrant colours.

Another thing that stood out to me was how slim this wallet really is. From a side on angle i’d say it almost disappeared. This razor this design is exactly what you’d need and want if you’re packing light on, say, a camping trip or hike. Remember it only weighs 0.4 oz / 12g (without cards) and comes in at 4.2″ x 2.75″ x 0.06″ only slightly bigger than a single credit or debit card. A perfect size for minimalist lovers and adventurers alike.

Functionality & Usability

At its core the wallet it very simple and doesn’t offer anything other than a single card slot which can fit around 6-8 cards comfortably. Flowfold themselves said this wallet wasn’t designed for anything but pure minimalist at heart. I quote from their website: “Designed for the straight shooter with no interest in excess features”. I really respect that from flowfold. To many brands these days try to be all singing, jack of all trades and a lot of them fall on their face. The best types of wallets are the ones with a clear purpose and they always tend to be the ones that work the best standing out from the crowd.

Final Verdict

So can I recommend the wallet? I can, but only to those people who’d want a secondary wallet for things like camping. If you’re the adventurous type who love to get out the house (I should probably do that once in awhile) then I highly recommend this wallet. Sometimes that big old chunky bi-fold just doesn’t cut it on those long walks, or mountainous treks. This is where the this wallet would excel and at only $12.00 you really have nothing to lose.
