If the 3-inch thick comically large wallet has got you sitting on an angle then it’s probably time to consider a new option; luckily Flowfold has your ass in mind. Sleeker than just about any other wallet we’ve ever seen and even more durable, the flowfold has us sold.
While traditional wallets and billfolds are made from yesterday’s sturdiest materials such as leather and canvas just about every wallet rips, tears and inevitably falls apart. Every Flowfold pocket, bifold and trifold are made from modern sailcloths.
Flowfold products are built with the same high tech racing sailcloths used by the world’s sailing elite. These cloths are composed of Carbon Fiber, Kevlar, Pentex or Polyester matrices sandwiched between Mylar films. They are the toughest, lightest and most resilient cloths in the world due to their high tensile strength to weight ratios and ideal modulus of elasticities.
Not only do the fibers of the sailcloth have more than quadruple the tensile strength of steel but the material itself is salvaged from the unused scraps and blemish of manufactured sails which means that they’re green. If a nearly indestructible, ultra-thin wallet available in any of 3 traditional designs and a continuously varying variety of colors wasn’t enough Flowfold wallets are inherently waterproof which means washing it, dropping it in a puddle or taking it on a swim aren’t anything to worry about.
After more than 4 months of continuous use and stress testing that would have reduced just about any other wallet to shreds and thread we can confidently say that the Flowfold is one the best wallet we’ve ever owned. Not only is it ultra durable and resilient but its streamlined look, nicely finished edges and unique look created by interweaving threads makes it a conversation starter whenever it comes time to clear your bar tab.
If you’re dying to get your hands on one they’re in the traditional bifold and trifold styles as well as a pocket style (which can easily hold about 10 cards as well as a few bills). Our personal favorite is the pocket (tarjetero) for the easy card access and ultra compact size. They also sell reusable tote bags which could likely support the weight of your largest friend.
