The Alto Pakman Pro Wallet Review
I often take a lot of time before I decide on the choice of wallet I take along during my travels. Fort review purposes I try new wallets almost every week, especially when I embark on my numerous journeys. One thing about me is that I am bold to try new wallets. I try a lot of wallets, even if they don’t fit my usual style. Although I often consider luxurious leather, an elegant look and how slim it looks in my pocket. However, over the past few journeys, I have opted to try something different from the norm. My boldness leads me to try the Alto Pakman Pro Wallet.
The Alto Pakman Pro wallet was born from the passion for woodworking of two brothers. A wallet that is part of the Alto Collective, a series of wooden works ranging from smartphone cases to longboards. The Pakman Pro is a wallet I particularly love for the level of creativity put into it, which is a break from the norm. Here’s an in-depth look into the world of the Alto Pakman Pro wallet.
“The Alto Pakman Pro comes with a Lycra-stretch card pouch that carries 1-8 cards. Premium Zebrawood, Walnut, Mahogany, or Padauk wood. The wallet is the perfect blend of leather, wood, and metal”.
Look & Design
The Pakman Pro wallet comes with an exquisite style, which is a break from the norm. I had always thought the most beautiful wallets would always come from strictly leather. The Pakman Pro made me realize wood can also come into the fray to rival 100 percent leather made wallets. Its adjustable tension-steel money clip at the back sits elegantly on the wood, and its black steel color compliments the wooden frame.
The Pakman Pro comes in four different forms of wood type depending on your choice. I came with the Zebrawood that the linings on the wood frame which gives an exotic look. There is also the Walnut, Mahogany, or Padauk wood, which is all exotic looking wood frames. The Pouch for cards and cash is perfectly fitted on the wooden frame and completes the simple yet elegant look. Although, I would have preferred if more pockets were added to the pouch to accommodate more cards.
Functionality & Utility
The Pakman Pro isn’t the most functional wallet in terms of carrying a lot compared to a lot of other minimalist wallets. Also, it doesn’t come with the RFID protection against wireless theft, which is another downside to it. However, it doesn’t fall short in other functions, as its Lycra-stretch card pouch helps me carry up to eight cards and IDs at a time. The adjustable steel money clip for extra cards or cash also comes in handy, as I can carry extra cards when I need to or fit in my banknotes when I need to carry cash. The money clip might seem a bit tight at first like mine did, but it’s quite adjustable.
- Lycra-stretch card pouch carries 1-8 cards
- Adjustable tension steel money clip for extra cards or cash
- Premium Zebrawood, Walnut, Mahogany or Padauk wood
- Durable finish
The Pakman Pro is a durable, minimalist wallet as its wooden structure helps it withstand a lot of things others cannot withstand. It doesn’t lack in style and is easier to carry around in the front pocket. For $42, the wallet is a stylish delight but it does come at a cost. If you’re looking for a material that’s different and want a minimalist wallet that stands out from the crowd then the Pakman Pro might be for you.
