The Dun Fold Wallet | The Newest Wallet in Minimalist Design

After the incredible success of the last and original Dun Wallet (check out my review of that wallet here) the guys are back with their brand new minimalist wallet the Dun Fold. Currently being funded on Kickstarter the DUN fold has already caught the eyes of many people with it’s incredible thinness and capabilities to store a lot for it’s size. I’ve been luckily enough the try the Dun Fold out over the last few weeks and have been very impressed from start to finish. Here is my full review of the Dun fold.

Look and appearance

The duns name derives from the fact it’s design is based on a two fold mechanism much like the opening of some double doors. What immediately caught my eye was how thin this wallet is. Even when it’s folded the Dun is still thinner than, say, 70% of wallets on the market today. The fold is made from a very smooth and soft top-grain leather. It really doesn’t skimp on its material and is overall build quality shows day after day. After 3 weeks the wallets shown no visible wear or tear. Although I can’t comment on its longevity I feel confident this is a wallet for life.

Much like the other dun wallets the fold goes for a very sleek striped back approach using black, white and silver accents very nicely in it’s design and branding.

Functionality

The fold uses a very clever way of storing cash; probably must most favorite way for any wallet ever. It uses a sliding slot mechanism on the main body of the wallet. By simply sliding notes under this the tight seal along with the folding design means you cash is not only secure but very easy to access with just an opening of a single fold. Check out my video above, if you haven’t already, for more information on how well the Dun Fold stores cash. In terms of the duns card storage is takes a similar approach to that of the previous dun wallet.

The Dun Fold also comes with RFID Protection. If you feel conscious regarding the possibility of having your cards skimmed. This pocket secures 1-2 cards against RFID skimming. The RFID pocket is cleverly t is positioned in the centre of the wallet so that the cards in the front and back pocket don’t interfere with each other. Just another reason example of how well this wallet is designed.

Usability

In brief the Dun is very fun and easy to use. Notes are so easy to access and cards are stored at the very edges so access is a breeze. The Dun even solved the issues I had with the British £20 note (It wouldn’t fit) and now fits all international bill sizes without folding.

Final Verdict

A true gem in a sea of bland and boring wallets. I find the Dun Fold attractive, stylish, functional and best of all slim. If you’re ready to discover your next minimalist wallet the Dun Wallet should really be a consideration. For more information visit the Fold’s Kickstarter campaign or visit their website here.

DUN Wallet Review – A classic example of design and functionality

The DUN wallet funded through Kickstarter made in Holland and released last year is a mid to high-end Minimalist wallet with a focus on slender and well laid out design. While being credited as the world’s thinnest leather billfold at just 0.2 inches the DUN has many strengths that might just make it the perfect wallet for you. Let’s take a look at what the DUN has to offer.

The DUN in detail

When you first fold out the Dun wallet its most unique feature is its rectangularly cut sleeve “cash strap” which acts as a secure place to store your cash notes (up to 10) and other paper like items. In all honestly, this design was what made me most excited to receive the DUN as it provides an easy streamlined and functional way to store notes without the need to fold notes up small or use the typical note sleeve. It reaches it most potential when you have a lot of notes and it’s designed to allow effortless shuffling between bank notes to find the one you want. Easy and simple. The only criticism of this sleeve is it doesn’t accommodate some currencies with some larger bill notes. For example, the English £20 note needs to be folded to fit properly and I’ll assume this is the case for other bills that are at least 149mm x 80mm. A bit of a pain but not a deal breaker.

UPDATED: For us Brits, the DUN doesn’t fit the new £5 Notes very well. Its very small size and plastic material cause it to slide unpredictably in and out of the wallet. I assume this would be the case for other currencies which use plastic notes.

Functionality

Along with this the wallet also hosts 4 card slots 2 of either of the wallets which can accommodate up to 8 cards comfortably. Along with RFID technology for your security needs and a top notch design, the Dun really does have a great balance between style and unique functionality. The Dun is currently available in 2 colour variations black and brown and you can tailor that further by choosing the colour of the metal tag/clip between gold and silver.

Final Verdict

The Dun wallet is currently available for a price of $60. But Is it worth that sort of money? Yes definitely. What the Dun excels in is its attractive design and ease of use. It’s sleek modern design and thin profile gives it a 21st century feel and its quality, feel and usability is second to none. The Dun currently costs $60 (for the standard none RIFD) or $70 for RIFD version. You can purchase the DUN wallet here.
