Wallets being Funded – April 2017 Edition.
I’d be lying if i said there was anything that worthy of backing this month. In March we had an actual great variety of wallet being funded on both Kickstarter and IndieGoGo. Unfortunately April is looking very much like a slow month. Hopefully its the calm before the store, but never the less lets take a look at some of the best (and worst) wallets currently being crowdfunded in April.
The Month of the Multi-tool Wallets
Probably the most unoriginal name for a wallet i’ve ever come across. The Wellet dubs itself as the first ever power bank, GPS, and Coin sorting. The wallet appearance looks a bit boring, but the weird eclectic mix of random features might just save this wallet from the shitter. But that name really is just plain… shit. Available in slim and bifold variants.
I actually really like this wallet. The Hax acts as the perfect handy mans wallet. It can be used as a screwdriver and even a jig-saw blade for cutting. For the right person this wallet has a lot of potential. Its no use to a nerd like me but to the right person it could be incredibly functional. We’ll keep an eye on how this one goes moving into April. They are asking for a hefty $40K AUD.
The Wingback is quite a interesting wallet. It reminds me of the Frenchie Wallet I reviewed quite a while ago with the way it accesses notes. The production value of this Kickstarter campaign was clearly very high and well done, but from an aesthetic point of view i’m not very impressed with the wallet overall. It really is nothing special or new in terms of functionality. I wouldn’t waste your money on this one.
I always like to make a special mention to some wallets with little to no thought gone into them. It always takes me by surprise when bog standard leather wallets get funded. The immortal leather is an example of this. Its just a slim leather wallet. Nothing special; nothing new.
I’ve already reviewed the Rapid Wallet a couple of weeks ago, but I never got the chance to look at the beautiful Metal version of this amazing looking wallet. You can read my review for yourself here.
Another Multi-tool wallet. This one has more features, but on a smaller scale. With a bottle opener, and a usb included its carbon fibre body and distinctive look makes it a strong contender for a pretty solid wallet. The guys at Static are already sending me a prototype to review so stay tuned for that review coming very soon.
