The Allett Nylon Wallet Review
It’s not often I get to review wallets specifically tailored towards people who love the outdoors and the adventure type. The Allett is for those people exactly and I’ve been waiting for a time to use this wallet to its full potential. Luckily for me, I finally went on a short weekend camping so I knew this might be the only opportunity I get to use it.
The Allett Nylon Wallet is a strange one. It’s not entirely attractive and the material isn’t exactly high quality. But that’s not the reason it was designed and made. What this wallet brings is the best for a niche need and it does that to the highest standard. Let’s take a more detailed look at what this wallet is all about.
‘Carry it all, comfortably. Despite its sleek silhouette, the Original wallet is designed to accommodate all of your credit cards, bills, and receipts –with no need to remove it from your pocket before sitting down. Crafted from rip-resistant, sweat-wicking nylon, this super slim wallet’s patented pocket design lays completely flat, keeping your essentials handy in the thinnest of profiles’.
Look & Design
The first thing to note is the sheer size of the Allett. This wallet is by no means slim in terms of its height and width. Coming in at (9.5cm x 12.7cm x .3cm) it easily tops one of the biggest wallets I’ve reviewed to date. On the other hand, its actual thickness while empty or full of cards is incredibly thin. This is very good for easy access but for minimizing your daily carry when out and about in the wilderness.
The Wallet is made from very thin but strong nylon. The material isn’t exactly nice to the touch but it does have a rustic and organic look to it that I and others might like. What the material does add is great protection to the outside elements. While on my trip I had been hiking on multiple occasions and found its protection and security great. Just for testing purposes I deliberately left the wallet out in both rain along with throwing the Allett in a variety of mud, leaves, and sticks. Again the protection is fantastic and the nylon material is extremely easy to clean.
Functionality & Utility
The Allett can hold a seriously large amount of cash and cards. If you’re worried about fitting your country’s banknotes then don’t be. The Allett has the biggest note slot I have ever come across and had no issue in story large amounts of bills. This pocket is also very deep (that’s what she said) which means cash can be well hidden along with being protected.
The Allett can also hold up to 24 cards which is the largest amount I’ve ever come across in an easy-to-use systemic way. Cards are stored across a number of slots each with a capacity of 2 each. The larger size of the Allett does help but its clear design really is the knockout feature here.
Another nice addition to the Allett is its inclusion of a dedicated coin pouch. This is a rather very necessary inclusion for an adventure wallet. It uses a simple ziplock mechanism for security and can store a decent amount of coins easily without getting too heavy or bulky.
Overall the Allett is a strong wallet for those who frequently find themselves outdoors and need added protection and storage to tackle the elements. I don’t think I can recommend this wallet for normal everyday use, mainly because of its size, but at only $20.00 it might not be a had shout if you like its look and larger size.
