The SlimFold, a gadget that I really like for its smart design
Dave Zuverink designed an ultra-thin wallet made from Tyvek, the super-strong FedEx enevelope material. I tried it and I love it. It comes in two types, a regular and a micro.
- 6x thinner than leather wallets
- Fits in your front pocket with an iPhone
- 5x lighter than leather wallets
- Only as heavy as what you carry
- 100% Waterproof
- Ultra rip-resistant
I have taken some shots of the outside and inside of the SlimFold and compared it with my morbidly obese black leather wallet. I am never returning to that thing again!
Remember that scene from Seinfeld, where George Costanza complains (he always complains, doesn’t he?) about his wallet? They’re in the diner, eating a burger. George pulls out his huge wallet and Jerry goes: “Look at this thing, it’s huge! You’ve got more cow here, than here.” (pointing at George’s burger)
George: “I need everything in there.”
Jerry: “Irish money??”
George: “I might go there.”
Best quote (Jerry): “You’ve got a filing cabinet under the half of your ass.”
George avoids sitting on a slant by stuffing his other back pocket with napkins. But in the end, his back keeps killing him and his wallet finally explodes when he’s walking the street.
In case you haven’t seen it, watch it here:
Moral of the story? Get the SlimFold! It’s awesome and the price is very competitive. When I ordered mine from Dave Zuverink, I never thought I was going to like it as much as I do. I have been showing it to almost everyone I met these past couple of days. Nice going Dave, thanks for inventing this!
