Secrid first came to market with their minimalist wallet back in 2009. This new design wasn’t just a typical folding wallet; instead, it featured a leaver on the bottom that would slide your cards out of the top for easy access. The spring-loaded mechanism won over plenty of users. Now, nearly a decade later, Secrid is reintroducing the idea with a new twist.
The new design uses the same patented mechanism to slide your cards out. Simply grip the wallet in your right hand—lefties can use it as well, but it’s a bit awkward and you won’t be able to get the full benefit of being able to sort through your cards with a glance—and use your pinkie finger to squeeze the lever. Your cards will cascade out of the top, allowing you to choose whichever one you need. The card holder holds four embossed or six flat cards.
Credit cards aren’t the only thing that you have to carry around, though. You need extra space for either additional cards or for identification cards, business cards, etc. Slimwallet fold out to reveal sleeves for six extra cards. You’ll also find a pocket where you can carry banknotes. Secrid also offers a version iwtha small coin pocket as well. Undoubtedly you’ll want to keep all those cards safe, and Slimwallet does just that. The aluminum housing not only provides a solid frame for the wallet, it also shields your cards from RFID skimming. Should you want to scan any of these cards without having to fully remove them from the wallet, just activate the sliding mechanism.
Overall, the slim wallet keeps about the same width and height dimensions of your credit cards. Thickness will depend on how much you put into it—extra cards and a wad of cash will of course increase its footprint. Secrid offers around 50 different colorways and combinations of materials to match your preferences and styles. Prices range from $90 to $135.
