Slim, compact, perfect size and good material

Received it quite fast (Europe). It's slimmer and smaller than I thought, for me the perfect size as it has no useless extra space. Pull strap works great and the material feels solid, strong and lightweight. Cards slide out with ease. The wallet seems like it can take a beating and will probably last....On the photo a size comparison with the Herschel Charlie Wallet and the Arc Compass wallet.

This is probably pointless

This is being discontinued I believe. I bought one to start, I bought 7 more to hand out as gifts and stash one for when my first one eventually breaks down. I've kickstarted so many damn wallets and purchased so many more for more than this went regular price. This is my favorite cardholder by far. Size is small, light, I almost have to do a double take to ensure I have it with me, its really cool and if they make a second version with I don't even know what improvement (material?) I'd still probably buy it. I carry 5 cards in it and it's been a dream come true, 2 on each side, 3 in the center with the pull, and let me tell you it feels great to pull my Costco card out of the center and pop it right back in. Buy it while you can.

Perfect Cardholder

This is my 3rd Alpaka purchase and I can without a doubt say that it's my favourite of the 3. This cardholder is extremely lightweight, thin and durable. I only carry 4 cards on me and this little guy does it well; cards in the outer pockets pull out smoothly. The pull tab is also a nice addition so I don't have to go digging for cards in the centre pocket--my only thing is that I wish it was shorter or maybe even elastic. It hangs about the same length of the wallet itself. Otherwise there's nothing bad about it, it's minimal, cards don't slide out when it's upside and it's overall aesthetically pleasing.

Great minimalist wallet/cardholder

Good to see that all the materials are used and not wasted. Nice little cardholder for minimalist carry. Fits nicely about 6 cards and a few notes.

Great minimalist wallet/cardholder

So far so good. Only change would be to see if it's possible to move the pull tab slot to the longer side rather than on the narrow side. Makes it much easier to pull out cards and maybe even use it for currency notes.

Initially unimpressed

Upon first glance this looked like a flimsy piece of nylon that could barely hold one card, let alone function as a wallet. First impressions aren’t everything though! As someone who has been using a minimalist wallet for years I figured it was time for a new one. I had a pretty steep discount available so I gave it a shot. This wallet is easily 40% smaller than my previous wallet and holds more than it did! Best of of all I can fit this thing almost anywhere and it looks downright stunning. There’s tons of wallets out there but if your a minimalist or just feel like you want to slim your wallet down. I can’t recommend the UP enough! The price is entirely justified by the downright quality of it!
