The Cuir Ally Stark Wallet Review
On the surface, the Cuir Ally Stark doesn’t seem to pose a huge range of variation from what you’d expect from your average bi-fold wallet. But looks can look deceiving and the hidden features of the Stark wallet are budding with little secrets that make it more than just an average bifold. With a good size, average-sized card capacity and an eclectic color palette the Cuirally is shaping up to be a very promising wallet. Let’s take a look.
‘We, at Cuir Ally are redefining the way you carry. Our products are designed around what it needs to carry and not the other way round. This ground-up minimalistic design approach has helped us eliminate the clutter and focus on what’s important to give you products that speak for themselves. They speak of the countless hours that were spent on them to make them more functional, ergonomic and of course better looking’.
Look & Design
The main difference between the Stark Wallet and other bi-folds comes down to some small variations to its design along with a small eclectic range of colors that would appeal to something looking for something a little different. These are 6 very bold, bright and “in your face”, so to speak, colors which will turn off some but enthrall others. These 6 colors, as described by me, include:
- Blood Red (The wallet I was sent for review).
- Muddy Blue
Functionality & Utility
The functionality of the Stark wallet is very strong. RFID Capabilities are included which are great for those conscious regarding people stealing your hard-earned money with skimming devices. In practice, it worked flawlessly and it wasn’t able to pay contactless with any card when it was inside the wallet. Just as advertised!
The main difference between the Stark and other typical bifold is the inclusion of a secret quick access slot hidden in the bill slot at the back. This can fit an additional 2 cards along with the other 4 slots that have an advertised capacity of 2 cards each. The card slots are very tight from the get-go. Great for security as they are unlikely to fall out which is great. On the other hand, it really inhibits your ability to fit more than 5 cards. Any more than 4 and I was finding myself forcing the cards in the slot with difficulty.
Other notable points:
- Premium fine-grain leather.
- Unique look. The top corners are rounded for a stylistic look.
- Dimensions: 10.4 x 8.7 x 0.6 cm.
- Coin slot also included.
One interesting point to note is that the Cuirally Stark claims to be the “world’s slimmest unisex wallet”. A very bold claim which seems to have no evidence to support the claim. As someone who’s reviewed hundreds of wallets, male & females, based on its size I really doubt this is the truth. Regardless I find the Cuirally Stark a fine wallet with great size, and all-round strong functionality.
If you’re looking for a wallet with a bold color, and in the style of a traditional bi fold perhaps the Stark wallet is for you. For more information please visit their website by clicking the link below.
