The Best Minimalist Wallet of 2019

by Sam ChenAugust 20, 2018

If you’re reading this, it’s because you’ve realized that your wallet is too big, too bulky, too heavy, and you’re carrying way too much stuff in it. I get it. This was a problem I had years ago before switching to a slim minimalist wallet, which ultimately made me re-evaluate exactly what was necessary in my wallet and what was just extra junk I was carrying for no reason and believe me when I say I was carrying a lot of junk.

So, if some of you are preparing to make the jump to a minimalist wallet, today we’ll be presenting you with what we think are the best minimalist wallets the market has to offer.


Trayvax Element

The Trayvax Element is one of our favorite wallets here at Gear Primer thanks to its versatile design, heavy duty construction, and great overall aesthetics. Measuring in at 4.5″ x 2.8″ x 0.5″ and weighing in at just 5 ounces, the Trayvax Element is capable of fitting between 3-10 cards and 1-5 bills and features an integrated money clip, bottle opener, and attach point. For those who own contactless RFID credit cards, rest assured, the Trayvax Element also offers RFID protection, preventing your payment information from being stolen wirelessly.

The Trayvax Element is also incredibly durable featuring a stainless steel frame combined with a top grain oil-tanned leather casing stitched together with paracord. Each wallet is made in the good old USA and features a 65-year heirloom warranty, so this may be the last wallet you ever buy in your life.

Dango Dapper 2

If you’re looking for something that combines minimalism with space age technology, feast your eyes on the Dango Dapper 2, a minimalist wallet that’s pretty much the pinnacle of what a minimalist wallet can be. Measuring in at just over 0.3 inches thin when loaded up with 6 cards, the Dango Dapper 2 is capable of holding up to 12 cards, a money clip for additional cash, and features RFID blocking.

The “secret sauce” of the Dango Dapper 2 is however, unquestionably the construction. Built in the USA using aerospace grade T6061 aluminum, handpolished for an hour, coated with nickel and bolted together using mil-spec steel bolts, the Dango Dapper 2 is a wallet that’ll last a lifetime. Literally.

Dango Tactical EDC Wallet

For those who want to go with something a little more minimalist, but still want something with practical value, the Dango Tactical EDC wallet is the perfect choice. In addition to the capability of holding up to 12 cards, the Dango Tactical EDC wallet features the Dango MT02 Multi-Tool, which is a thin, card-sized multi-tool featuring 14 different functions including a paracord cutter, nail pryer, serrated edge, phone stand, and more.

As with other Dango minimalist wallets, each Dango Tactical EDC Wallet features a lifetime warranty, aerospace grade T6061 construction, and is handmade in the USA.
