Kickstarter Wallet Round-up
This month we’ve got some great picks currently being funded through Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms. With picks that innovative beyond the norm, we have wallets that help tackle Covid-19, an innovative cardholder wallet with instantly high functionality and an alternative take on Apple’s MagSafe Wallet. Let’s dive into it and see if any of these wallets are worth your hard-earned money.
If you want to check out any of our other Kickstarter Round-Ups then please do so. You never know what innovative wallets you might have missed. You can check out some of our most recent round-ups using the link below.
V-PREX Leather Wallet
The biggest selling point of the V-PREX Wallet is definitely a modern-day issue including a unique inbuilt spray for hand and surface cleaning. This comes in the form of a small spray bottle that sits in a little leather holster and attaches to the side of the wallet. As you’re probably aware, washing your hands and daily carry items has become something of a normality for most, due to covid-19, and the V-PREX Wallet helps with this issue allowing you to easily have your disinfectant or hand cleaner with you at a moments notice.
It’s a very niche item, to say the least, and the longevity of the product is still in debate with some countries fairing better than others with many seeing the tail end of the virus at this point. That being said, it does eliminate any doubt regarding the potential to forget handwash as part of your EDC, so for that, I applaud V-PREX. Not only that, but the wallet itself is actually pretty interesting. It’s styled like a minimalist cardholder (coming in at just 8.5 cm x 11.70 cm), and also includes a zipper slot for storage of coins or other small items. The quality also looks decent being made from a soft-touch crazy horse leather.
Currently, the V-PREX has raised a small amount of capital ($350) but only had a pledge of $100, to begin with. I can see why the wallet hasn’t really taken off. It fits a niche, but that isn’t exactly what people want to be reminded of. We all really wish a wallet like this didn’t have to exist and I bet that’s one of the main reasons why people are backing the V-PREX Wallet.

The Holdi 2.0 Wallet
What stands out about the Holdi Wallet is its smaller minimalist size, yet fantastic functionality. The designers of this wallet have really thought out every aspect and have maximized the wallet’s small space very efficiently providing many innovative features for not only great cash/card capacity but also coins. A small flap of leather at the front can be pulled down to reveal a small slot that stores coins or even a key, while a hybrid between leather and elastic increases the potential credit/debit card access to new great heights of up to 15 cards.
The only issue I have with the Holdi Wallet is its choice of material is made from a PU leather and canvas coating. PU Leather is bad in itself (a poor grade), and I can only imagine the quality, feel, and lifespan of the wallet is dampened by this.
The Holdi 2.0 Wallet has currently surpassed its crowdfunding goal having reached its conservative goal of just over $1000. I think the Holdi Wallet is pretty innovative and I think it would be a fantastic wallet for anyone who wants to slim down their EDC, but also retain a certain amount of functionality – mainly coin storage. Definitely check this one out. For more information visit their Kickstarter page using the link below.
The Magholder Wallet
Trying to capitalize on Apple’s latest MagSafe technology and its accessories that accompany it, the Magholder is an interesting and innovative take on Apple’s MagSafe Wallet. While Apple’s version of this wallet is a simple cardholder the Maghoder wallet has expanded on this functionality providing a kickstand, grip, and increased card capacity. The phone case wallet itself is made from top-quality materials and also comes in a great, but small, array of colors to choose from.
Apart from the fact the Magholder wallet comes with more features than Apple’s alternative, this Kickstarter project also significantly undercuts Apple and can be yours for a much cheaper price tag. Currently, the project has raised a highly respectable $10,000 which means the wallet has succeeded in raising its capital. Overall, I have high hopes for this MagSafe alternative and think it’s a great take on Apple’s own MagSafe Wallet. For more information check out their Kickstarter campaign page using the link below.
