THE UNLOSEABLE WALLET
Where's my wallet?
All in all, I spent less than an hour looking for my wallet this time but there were a few very real moments of panic in which I thought I’d just lost it while out before. You know the feeling I’m talking about: when you realize you haven’t seen your wallet in a while. When you pat your pocket and can’t feel it. When you go to pay at the counter and it’s not where you thought it would be. Nine times out of ten, it turns out I simply forgot where I put it; the tenth time, I’m already holding it in my hand while I look for it in my bag.
Why can't I call it?
I made my excuses to my friend when I arrived (forty minutes late), ruefully adding ‘I wish I could just ring my wallet sometimes, you know?’ She wasn’t impressed by my tardiness, but she had a suggestion for me. She mentioned a brand named Ekster that makes smart wallets which you can call. Before you ask ‘do I really need this, though? Does a wallet need to be smart?’ I have another question for you. How many times have you lost your wallet? If you’re one of those people who just always knows where everything is, congratulations and goodbye! You don’t need this. But if you’re like me, keep reading.
Keeping my religion, losing my wallet
How many times have I actually lost my wallet, you ask? Twice. Once I was five years old and I threw it into the sewer in a fit of rage. It only had a drawing of my dog and my dad’s business card in it, but I was still exceptionally upset once I realized what I had done. The second time was more recent, only three or four years ago. I lost it on a night out. If I were to guess, I think I dropped it while pulling my phone out of my pocket to call a cab. I couldn’t tell you for sure. But I do remember the horrible, stomach-dropping feeling the next morning, when I realized I didn’t have it.
Losing my wallet sucked because...
What’s even the worst thing about losing your wallet? There are so many, I don’t know where to start. For one, I’m always scared someone will use my cards to buy illegal stuff (Guns? Powdered tortoise shells? Kinder eggs?). I also always carry a few dollars with me, so I can say goodbye to that. Then there’s trying to replace all my access cards. When I lost my wallet, I also lost my gym card, my travel card, my bank cards (duh), my work access pass. It was a pain and a hassle to get all this stuff replaced, and it wasn’t cheap either. But you know what the worst part was?
I was the guy who lost his wallet
I was the person who had lost their wallet. I made fun of friends who managed to do this before me; I was always less than empathetic, because it had never happened to me. But I suddenly found myself telling friends, family, people from work, the pizza delivery guy: ‘I lost my wallet and I have no idea where it is.’ I didn’t want this in my life again. I wanted to be cool, calm, and collected: the sort of person who is ready for anything, and who doesn’t lose their wallet in the middle of it. If the Ekster wallet had been available four years ago, I would have dropped money on it in a heartbeat. But better late than never, and although I’m late to the smart wallet party, I’m definitely here to stay.
Now Life's Easier with an Ekster
In the week since I got my Ekster, I’m a lot more relaxed already. Sometimes I want to check if I have my wallet on me, so all I do is ring it. No more fumbling through my bag in panic; no more checking my accounts frantically to see if anyone bought any banned chocolates with my money; no more mad searching through my wallet for my cards, thanks to the quick access feature. I already feel cooler, which is super important of course, but the best thing about the wallet is how much easier it’s made my life. If there’s one object that does need to be smart - it’s most definitely your wallet.
Fast delivery, premium quality, and design. Love it!.
I bought this as a gift for my partner and my partner very much loved it ! The wallet was shown exactly like what it says and the function is also as mentioned. Overall, very happy with the product and the box it came with !
Everything works as expected, and the set up for the solar powered locator chip was super user friendly, even for a non-tech guy like me.
It is most convenient for me and it looks elegant.
I pledged almost 10 kinds of wallet at several funding site. In those, I select this and have been using.
Excellent Tracker Card, which you can track the location of the wallet and it has a ring to find features in the app which make life easy when you don’t remember where you left your wallet in your house. Thanks to Ekster.
I am very impressed by this wallet. To it’s small sleek design. To the convenience of being able to access cards quickly. And on top of all that being very stylish. I really couldn’t be happier with my choice.
Perfect size, great service, beautiful
This is my first dive into a minimalist wallet and I’m glad I went with Ekster. I’m asked about it a lot when getting out a card or id, people are really into it. The tracker is a great feature.
I have tried just about every front pocket wallet there is and not one compares to Ekster! The feel, how easy it is to use, and the fact that it works like it is suppose to everytime you squeeze the trigger makes it my wallet of choice. I have purchased 2 wallets, a card holder , and a money clip so far and plan on purchasing and using Ekster forever!!
Before I purchased my Ekster Parliament wallet I was always getting frustrated while trying to remove my credit cards from my wallet, they either stuck together or almost impossible to remove. Now it just a simple press of a button and my cards are easily removed no problem. My Ekster Parliament Wallet is the best wallet I have ever owned. Allot of times I go to pull out a credit card in front of a cashier I usually get a comment, "Wow, that's pretty cool,where did you get that".
From the moment I opened my package I knew I’d love the Ekster brand. But after owning my wallet for a month, my tracker device wouldn’t charge. Through a quick and easy warranty claim process, I was responded to in a timely manner and my replacement card has been shipped to me with no extra charge. Thank you Ekster!
I bought the metro 52 matte Parliament wallet and it is hands-down the best wallet I've ever purchased. I can not tell you how excited I was to receive this in the mail. There is one problem or thing that disappointed me; it's the plastic button that springs your cards forward. I thought the button was going to be made out of metal. The plastic lowers the quality and for that price point I was expecting premium quality. I really love the wallet but, metal would have been a nice finish. One crazy feature that I would love for the wallet to have is a wireless portable charger on the front. It just looks like it could have one! That would be awesome! Thank you Ekster for this amazing wallet.
