Improved MICRO for added durability

I'm excited to announce an improvement to the MICRO which will be included with all new models starting today…

Reinforcements in the inner pockets that greatly improve durability

This solution was arrived at based on customer feedback and collaborative testing by several Kickstarter backers. I've received extremely positive feedback from everyone who's tried it.

Thin plastic pieces inserted into each inner money pocket flap provide these improvements:

  • Rigidity is maintained across the entire face of the outside panels of the wallet, not just were the credit cards are
  • Force from the cards is distributed through the smooth plastic so there are no high points to wear or imprint onto the face

The difference really is quite remarkable… the only drawback was that these inserts would slightly take away from the capacity of the wallet. So I set about  prototyping with a variety of materials and thicknesses and finally arrived at the perfect combination. And now I've had some custom manufactured to fit exactly.

Here's a 2-minute video showing the details of the solution and illustrating how they go in:
Also- All black models and several other colors are back in stock!

There are only a handful of black Originals though so get them while you can. More Original inventory will be coming in about two weeks.

Lastly, I'd love to keep in better touch with you through Facebook. I'm very conservative about sending out emails to the whole list but I'm going to be posting inventory updates and some behind the scenes stuff on Facebook so if you like SlimFold in real life, please take a moment to head over and like it there too…

Thanks for your support!

    I used the template provided and made my own using reinforced cardboard file dividers. These have the glossy finish and are sturdy enough for my use (i.e. 8 cards and cash) without being too bulky. Just print out the template, cut your weapon of choice and slide them in!

    My slim fold is legendary so slim I often forget I got it wedged behind my phone!
    I put a plastic cut out from a laminated sheet
    Now there’s an official improvement I’ll be due another
    If I get a great postage deal I’ll even get 3!

    What’s wrong with Google+ Mr Z I hate Facebook.

    @Breno @Matt – Yes, lots of folks have made their own and been very happy with the improvement. I’ve prepared a template which can be found here: http://bit.ly/18KcUd3
    The best thing to use is a thin rigid plastic such as what you find in a clam-shell food container… like salad sometimes comes in or for take-out food. Hope that helps but let me konw if you have any trouble…

    Loving my SlimFold Micro. I have the KickStarter limited edition green model, and it is the finest wallet that I have ever owned. So slim and comfortable. I will be getting a backup soon in case I have a need for a replacement in the future. Thanks for making the perfect wallet!
