Beautiful wallet but my AMEX platinum metal card falls out when I turn the wallet upside down.
I’m a secrid wallet user for several years. But I wanted something new and the ekster vachetta parliament looked as if it had the same great features as the secrid but it was something new and maybe more refined. I also got the ekster Chipolo find your wallet card. After getting it in first instance it looked great and was great. But when I transferred everything from my secrid to this one it didn’t look great anymore. It couldn’t fit in a proper way what I was carrying. And because of that became very bulky. It surprised as it should have been ok according to the website, but the result is that I now have a brand new wallet lying in a shelf to probably never be used. The secrid is just a much better total solution. It beats the ekster wallet in just about everything but the smell of the leather....but if you can get away with just some cards it could be great for you.
I do like the localisation card but that fits fine in my secrid also....
A really good buy.
I was a card holder with money clip guy. It was slim and not much bigger than a pile of cards, whilst all other formats of purses with or without clip were way bigger & bulky in the pocket. Until the Ekster - that gave the impulse to change. Nice leather and a super slim form factor made the decision whilst it offeres an optimised Cars handling too.
After buying 1st and 2nd generation, I keep continue to buy… so I am still seduced by quality and ergonomics. Parliament is a little too big for me, Senate is just perfect (I bought two different colors), and even a Secretary for evening dressed. Happy customer :)
Features - 4/5
Ekster reduces the footprint of your typical wallet significantly with simple and smart features, such as the the push to slide mechanism and the addition of separate card holder which comes with the package.
Quality - 3.5/5
Let's get the peeves out the way first. Firstly the sliding mechanism works perfectly well, but is made from plastic and doesn't really give the impression of I finely crafted wallet. Secondly, it may just of been the unit I received but it is relatively easy for the cards to fall out with not much force.
Now onto the positives - it's slim, the wallet is made from what looks like milled (I think!) aluminium gives it heft or 'weight' and feel of quality and sturdiness. The same can be said about the leather - beautiful leather (offered in a diverse range of colours) used on both the wallet and additional card holder oozes quality and sleekness.
Price - 3.5/5
The quality of the aluminium chassis and leather justifies some of the price, however plastic push to slide mechanism and unfortunately the ease of how the cards drop out just makes this product fall short of being perfect.
-Final Words -
Please bear in mind during this time of review, I informed Ekster about the issue with how my cards fell out with little force. Ekster were really helpful and within a week reached out to myself and provided a solution. Credit is due where it is due and Ekster's customer service has been top-notch.
I look forward to see how they develop their products, as I for one am a fan.
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 received my first wallet via Sweatcoin promotion. The trigger to the wallet had fallen out and the wallet lost all functionality. I was disappointed because I was really looking forward to my new wallet. Their return policy says that they would not honor Sweatcoin promotions, so I thought that I was out of a wallet all together. I reached out to their team and sent a video of what went wrong. They promptly reached out and said they were sorry for the error and that they would replace my wallet with an upgraded version. I was blown away! Ekster didn't have to do anything. By the terms of the Sweatcoin promotion, I wasn't guaranteed a replacement at all. They folks at Ekster really stand by their product, and they wanted me to know that. I'm very pleased with my new wallet. The trigger function is robust and reliable. I like the discreet design and the low volume it occupies in my pocket. While I do like the wallet, it's the people of Ekster that made me a customer for life! Highly recommend!
Beautiful, classy and premium feel. Love it.
it's the most useful wallet that I ever have
I initially got this as an impulse buy and having only known $20 wallets in past this has been nothing short of fantastic. The mechanism is amazing, super smooth, and the design is well thought out. Evening shaking the wallet upside down the cards stay in, and on top of all it’s very sleek.
Would highly recommended this product great convenience
It’s so nice and simple, and has a high quality tough
Gotten tons of compliments with people wondering where I got the wallet from. I've had it for a few weeks now and it functions well. I use the tile slim for my tracking and it fits fine. Only issue is that I'm not 100% confident in my metal card staying, but so far it works fine. I love it!
