Original Soft Shell

After an extensive search to find an ultra durable yet thin material, I tracked down a technical fabric mill capable of producing exactly what I was after. They create materials for such companies as North Face®, Columbia®, Mammut®, Under Armor®, and even Gore®... the makers of Gore-Tex®. In order to fund the huge minimum quantity required to produce it, the Kickstarter community helped raise over $150k and the Soft Shell was born.

Originally created for motorcycle wear, the material was subjected to 70mph crash tests using real pavement during development. Its strength is derived by blending super-strong synthetics together at ultra-high weave densities. Like high thread count sheets, this stuff feels amazing.

The layout of the Original Soft Shell further reduces thickness by employing a side-by-side configuration. Instead of overlapping cards, two stacks are created which drastically reduces the overall thickness of a full wallet. The footprint is a bit larger, but fits in both front and back pockets easily. Slots stretch so multiple cards can be placed in each one unlike the Tyvek version.

*Note that this model cannot be double-folded due to a thin reinforcement insert.

REVIEWS

"Love it! Holds everything and more than my previous wallets. I was super impressed by how minimally and ecologically it was packed and shipped. I had almost no waste other than the plastic. Even reusing the insert as an emergency card is genius. Really well designed. Thanks for putting yourself into it."

"I got my Original SS and it's great! I had WAY too much stuff in my old leather wallet and I'm pretty much stuffing the SS to capacity with effectively ~22 cards. It's still very slim (compared to what I'm used too haha) and is even comfortable to sit on (though I prefer front pocket). Thanks for making a great product!"

"Received The originel wallet a few weeks ago, it is a super wallet. Even fully loaded with Cards, Paper money etc it is thinner than my Old leather wallet, which is empty."

Just got my two originals and love it! Fits my 13 cards + 6 misc name cards and still feels slimmer :D

Quite pleased with my Original SS Black/Gray. I fit 20 cards, $160 in $20 bills, $40 in $10 bills, a receipt, and a coupon. I could never fit all of that in my old, bulky leather wallet.

I think this kickstarter (and the one for the original micro) have been the best managed kickstarters I have backed. Keep up the outstanding work!
