Are you tired of carrying around a bulky and obtrusive wallet? You aren't alone in wanting something slimmer. The demand for slim and minimalist wallets has skyrocketed. One of the driving forces of this is men caring more about their style and appearance. Having a bulky wallet is unappealing, to say the least. In this, we will be going over some of the advantages and disadvantages of opting for a minimalist wallet over a traditional wallet.


Advantages Of Using A Minimalist Wallet:

1. Achieve Optimal Comfort

One of the most significant advantages you get with a minimalist wallet is having something much more comfortable to carry. Carrying around a thick and heavy traditional wallet can be very uncomfortable. Unfortunately, it can cause a bulge making it difficult to bend and even sit if you keep your wallet in your rear pocket. A minimalist wallet is much lighter making it weigh you down less and it won't cause such a bulge which can make it uncomfortable to sit.

2. Ramp Up Your Style

Another advantage of having a wallet that you can wear discreetly is the ability to wear proper fitting pants without having a huge bulge in your front pocket. Those that feel more comfortable wearing their wallets in their front pockets need to go for a thinner style wallet. This is especially true if you are someone that wears slim-fitting pants. Not only can you end up stretching out your pants with a bulky wallet, but you will end up looking ridiculous with it, as well.

3. No More Worrying About Your Wallet

Having a traditional wallet can be a hassle for a variety of reasons. Carrying around a traditional wallet can be a hassle because it typically needs to be removed prior to sitting down. Otherwise, you end up with something that makes sitting very uncomfortable. Constantly removing your wallet whenever you sit down can be a dangerous habit. After all, you might end up taking your wallet out in a public setting where it can be stolen or you might even misplace your wallet. By getting a minimalist wallet, you will be able to avoid this from becoming a factor because it won't impact your ability to sit or even be noticeable at times.

4. Forced Organization

By giving yourself more room to use with a traditional wallet, you will likely find yourself hoarding all kinds of cards, receipts, and other things that you don't need. Whereas, when you are forced to go minimalist with a slimmer wallet, you will have forced organization allowing you to get rid of things you don't need.

5. Larger Phones

There's no denying phones have increased in size over the last few years. Nowadays, pretty much everyone has a plus-sized model phone. Even the 'smaller' phones can take up an entire pocket by itself. By getting yourself a slim wallet, you can keep your phone and your wallet in the same pocket which will free up your other pocket for your keys. Otherwise, you might find yourself scratching up your phone with your keys occasionally.


Disadvantages Of Using A Minimalist Wallet:

1. Getting Used To It

Each minimalist style wallet typically has its own features and functions making it something you need to learn how to use. Whether it's getting your preferred card out or getting cash into your wallet, you need to get used to it.

2. Holds Less Cash

As we move towards an increasingly cash-less society, this is becoming less and less of a downside. However, for those that use a lot of cash, it is something to consider.


Why You Need A Minimalist Wallet:

These wallets are becoming increasingly popular because they offer a lot of advantages that make it the superior option for carrying around your essentials. The forced organization can keep those likely to hoard a bunch of things less likely to do so. Likewise, the wallets inherently look better and aren't noticeable when you are wearing slimmer fitting pants. Also, because phones are getting so large, it's necessary to keep your wallet size down to a minimum. That way, you don't run out of pocket space. A minimalist wallet solves virtually every problem people typically have with traditional bulky wallets.


What To Look For When Shopping For One:

While a minimalist wallet is a must-buy for the style-conscious consumer, not every minimalist wallet is going to hit the mark. There are various factors to consider when you are choosing one.

1. Material

This is a major factor that has to be considered because it can dictate the kind of use you are able to get out of it. It can also dictate the level of durability offered by the wallet which can impact long-term potential. It will also determine the kind of style you are able to get from it. There are wallets that are available in elastic material all the way to premium carbon fiber.

2. RFID Protection

This is a must-have when you are searching for a wallet to purchase. RFID or "Radio Frequency Identification" contains all of your digital information found on your debit cards, credit cards, ID cards, and more. Because of this, you don't want the data from these cards to be accessible to potential scammers. By having a wallet with sufficient RFID blocking material, you will be able to ensure your RFID-enabled items are completely safe while you are out and about.

3. Size

Finding a wallet that is a suitable size is key. You want to find a wallet that is going to be minimal but also allows you to carry around all of your essentials.

4. Accessibility

Whenever you are looking to purchase any style or type of wallet, the accessibility it offers is likely to be a major consideration. This is especially true when you are talking about a minimalist wallet that might hinder the accessibility of accessing all of your cards and everything in it inherently. You want a minimalist wallet that keeps all of your cards and everything in it fully accessible with a user-friendly approach.

Why Pur Carbon's Real Carbon Fiber RFID Wallet and Real Forged Carbon Fiber RFID Wallet Are The Superior Options

One of the major flaws with a lot of the minimalist wallets you will find on the marketplace is a basic and uninspired design. A lot of people refuse to convert to a minimalist wallet because of the basic design options available. A lot of them are incomparable to traditional wallets that feature premium materials and style to match. However, with our real carbon fiber wallets, you no longer have to sacrifice style or luxury for form and function. Instead, you get a premium looking and stylish wallet in a smaller and minimalist form factor. Best of all, the wallets feature a lot of accessibility features making them easy to use and incredibly practical. Each wallet not only offers full RFID protection, but it offers the ability to carry up to 15 cards without expanding the wallet at all due to its rigid structure. It is truly a complete re-design and innovative approach to taking the best aspects of a traditional wallet and merging them into a minimalist form factor.

This is a great product (this was for 4 series 44mm). I’m really glad I spent the money on this because of the quality. This was my 2nd purchase with Pur Carbon and I’m extremely satisfied with these guys. They made amazing products and it is 1,000,000% worth the money. If you’re on the fence about this product, this is your sign to get this.

Love this case

This case is awesome. Real carbon fiber. Not one of those plastic ones that is painted to look like carbon fiber. This is the real deal. It snaps on easy and is very light weight. Very thin. It raises up around the camera to protect it. I love it.

Always good to hear that people love the carbon fiber. Thanks for letting us know.
