I Just Backed THIS Kickstarter Wallet…
Okay, I’ll admit to this…
When I first saw this wallet on Kickstarter – I didn’t say to myself, “This is THE wallet I’ve been after!”.
Because, as you probably already know, I’m in the process of designing my own wallet (getting there slowly but surely) – and so I’m hanging on for the “ultimate” wallet to be made by myself …if that doesn’t sound too big-headed :-D.
Here’s the thing:
I backed this wallet right away for three reasons…
#1 – Super-minimalist (more on the money-clip end of the spectrum to be brutally honest)
#2 – Made by Mike Bond (I have two of his other Kickstarter project products and they were well thought out and well made – two things often missed on Kickstarter projects)
#3 – It’s ridiculously cheap …in fact, it’s at such a low price, I kinda feel like I’m stealing :-P.
A little “insider secret”: The main video on the Kickstarter page is not that great in demonstrating the wallet …the second video down the page is a little better …but if you scroll to just past half-way down the page then Mike shows you an excellent video on the wallet (and that is the video you want to watch because the wallet really proves itself there).
Oh, and regarding ‘#3‘ from above:
This wallet is actually called “The $28 Titanium Wallet“ – how cool is that? Very cool indeed.
One last thing…
The reason the wallet can be $28 is because of the funding level. It’s got a relatively high funding level – because, as Mike says, this is what it takes to produce such a wallet at that price point.
As I type this it’s around 67% funded.
Cutting it close …but I’m crossing my fingers (because, very selfishly, I REALLY want one!)
