That chunky hunk of leather that comprises the trifold, bifold, or billfold is starting to look a bit antiquated. Trayvax Wallets and their ilk are setting new standards for form and function in the card- and bill-hauling accessory. Industrialism of metal and screws. Heritage classiness of oil-tanned leather. Futurism of high tech finishes and sleek designs. No cowhide bricks here.
The Contour Wallet features a CNC-machined stainless plate, coated via physical vapor deposition for added durability. Attached to that plate is a wrap-around strap made from five-ounce top-grain leather. It’ll hold thirteen cards and ten bills, and it can open a beer without removing any of them. The slide-adjustable strap opens to grant access to your cards and cash, then closes up tight to keep them all in place.
Designed to fit nicely in a front pocket, it also has a lanyard hole for strapping to your pack when needed. Made in the US with a lifetime warranty, the Contour won’t start to show its age (or start to look quaint) any time soon. –
