  • The Back Pocket Wallet Syndrome

    More than a few men come into doctor's offices each year, complaining about mysterious back pain. Chiropractors or other medical professionals have to figure out what's causing the pain, and what's happening to the body, looking at many different factors and considerations related to lifestyle and more. For instance, a lot of us spend hours sitting at our jobs, which can put a lot of pressure on the lower back.


    But in many cases, doctors find that part or all of the problem is related to damage or pressure on the sciatic nerve, which may or may not be caused by sitting.


    The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that goes from the lower back down the back of both legs. When this nerve becomes pinched, inflamed or otherwise bothered, you get a condition called "sciatica," with symptoms such as pain while sitting, burning or tingling, weakness, or a numb feeling in the affected area. Depending on the extent of the problem, these symptoms can extend down the entire leg to the foot.


    Piriformis Syndrome

    Many of these cases can actually be traced back to something as simple as the wallet that a man carries in his back pocket.

    Science professionals call this piriformis syndrome -- but some chiropractors and others have come to call it by the much less scientific name: "back pocket wallet" syndrome. No matter what you call it, it's the same thing -- the piriformis muscle near the top of the hip joint presses on the sciatica nerve because of the spinal displacement that can happen from carrying a fat wallet in one back pocket. It may take a while for the suffering patient to put two and two together and realized that a lump lying underneath one side of the buttocks can really start to cause pressure on local muscles and tissues, and create the kinds of symptoms that send them to the doctor's office.


    The piriformis muscle also gets a heavy workout in many kinds of exercise involving the lower body, especially activities like running or jogging. Part of the challenge of dealing with "back pocket wallet" syndrome involves understanding how it affects the regular activities that someone does every day, whether that's sitting in a seat, or performing athletic activities. Regardless, the pressure on the sciatic nerve can be aggravated by a wide range of lifestyles and routines.


    What Can You Do?

    A lot of guys hear about this and just start putting their wallet in a front pocket. But there is also another kind of remedy -- thinner wallets have less of a likelihood of causing these kinds of health problems.


    Allett's slim wallets are made with this in mind. These thin wallet designs make carrying a wallet much less intrusive, and make the wallet easier to put into a pants or jacket pocket, without sacrificing durability and build. Using materials like soft Napa leather and a thin alloy lining for RFID blocking, these wallets can provide all of the modern features that buyers want, without the bulk that often contributes to piriformis syndrome. Some experts have called this build a "low side profile" which can help in warding off the kinds of spinal problems that you experience carrying around a thick bulky wallet on one side of the body.


    Clinical Testimony

    Dr Logan Brooke

    Here's what one chiropractic doctor, Dr. Logan S. Brooke, D.C., had to say about Allett’s thin wallet:


    As a chiropractor, I place a high level of importance on proper posture, structural alignment and overall well-being. My first impression of the thin wallet was extraordinary! The first thing you notice is that the wallet has a very professional appearance. Second, the construction of the seams and pockets is very good…(the wallet) compresses down, even when filled with cards and cash. This low side profile allows you to still wear the wallet in your back pockets with little risk causing imbalance in your pelvis.


    Dr. Brooke and other medical professionals understand that the build of a wallet is important in how it affects the wearer. Because the thin wallet "compresses down," it becomes less intrusive to those delicate areas of the body that can cause significant problems over time if nerves and tissues don't have room to comfortably coexist.


    With more attention to not just the presentation of a wallet, but its security and ergonomic features, people are paying more attention to these types of accessories, and looking at premier designs like the Allett thin wallet as a way to invest in better financial and physical protection, while still buying a product that will last many years. Using high-quality materials, sturdy seam and pocket construction, and a well-researched engineering approach, Allett provides a 21st-century wallet for today's generations of men, who, with today's fast-paced lifestyles and constant, dynamic challenges, need more out of their billfolds.

  • Lightweight Travel Hacks

    Make Your Next Trip Light as a Feather

    No matter where you're going on your next trip, you'll benefit from learning how to pack light. In today's world, part of being better prepared means planning ahead, not just bringing more stuff, but packing for a trip in a way that helps you move more easily from place to place, with more comfort and more confidence.


    Here are some recommendations from travel experts on how to streamline your packing, to drag less gear around through every step of your itinerary.


    Go On A 'Packing Diet'

    One of the biggest and most fundamental rules for light packing is to make your possessions fit in the bag, rather than trying to get more luggage to fit all of your stuff into. Many experts recommend bringing one bag that complies with carry-on size limits. Then look at all of the items and choose those that are most useful -- and leave the rest.

    lightweight travel hack

    Versatile Clothing

    You can also save a lot of packing space by looking carefully at clothes that you will bring on the trip. For example, bring layers, rather than packing bulky jackets or coats. Some types of materials, like synthetics or lightweight wool, can be useful in more than one type of climate. And when it comes to shoes, choosing flats over heels or tough sneakers over boots can make a big difference, too.


    Never Bring Full-Sized Containers

    There's a whole lot of space-saving potential in having small containers to haul around things like soap, shaving cream and shampoo. By downsizing your cosmetics, you'll have a better chance of complying with new airline regulations, but you'll also be opening up room in your backpack.


    Try Multipurpose Items

    Some relatively light and compact choices can help you get more out of everything that you put in your bag. One example is the Indian sarong, popular with many world travelers, that can do double duty as either a dress or a tablecloth. Think about what every piece of gear brings to the table, and what it offers relative to its bulk.


    Try a Handy Passport-Sized Wallet

    For going anywhere outside of your home country, having a wallet built specifically for a passport can be an essential part of making sure everything you need is in your pocket during the trip. Try an Allett Classic Leather Traveler Wallet model that will accommodate both passport and credit cards, and still fit right into your pocket. For better security, take a look at this KeepSafe RFID Passport Wallet design. You can also carry your passport and cards in here, with a layer of insulating material to deter hackers using hotspot-related phishing methods to try to get your financial information off of your credit cards.

    Leave the House Keys at Home

    A common mistake with convenient packing involves bringing the keys to your house thousands of miles to wherever you want to go. Those little items are going to have any possible use during your trip, so think about leaving them on the counter at home.

    There are countless more travel hacks and these are just a few simple ideas. Are any of these tips something that you have tried? What are some other lightweight travel hacks that you have used?

  • The Importance of RFID Protection in Wallets

    Wallet Protection And Changes in New Technology

    In the old days, the biggest things that you had to look for in a wallet or billfold were portability and style. But these days, there is a lot more to evaluate, partly because of the ways that commercial transactions have changed.
    Just a century ago, everybody used cash. But this really isn't the case anymore. The last few decades have brought a major revolution in finance where nearly everyone is now carrying a set of plastic cards with which they pay for nearly everything they buy.
    This changes the ways that we view money, and it also changes the ways that manufacturers are building wallets. Now consumers are finding out that unfortunately card reading technologies that make it easy for them to buy things with credit and debit cards are also leading to situations where thieves and hackers can make off with their personal financial information.
    Radio frequency identification or RFID technology is great, but it has its flaws. Certain vulnerabilities in credit and debit card designs mean that in some cases, hackers may be able to reach out and grab our personal financial data.
    The problem isn't limited to our banking cards -- for example, RFID technology is also present in U.S. passports issued after 2006. The difference is that we don't take our passports with us on the street all the time -- while our credit and debit cards are so important that we don't leave home without them.

    But now, companies making wallets have figured out how to foil the nefarious plans of modern hackers.


    The Faraday Cage

    In order to understand everything that is being done around RFID protection, it's important to understand the principle that emerged in the early 1800s, when a physicist named Michael Faraday invented what is called the "Faraday cage."


    The Faraday cage works on the principle of manipulating radio waves and electromagnetic fields. By screening out electromagnetic radiation and blocking certain kinds of waves, a Faraday cage can either keep transmissions inside of a particular space, or keep them out of an internal area.


    One example is the microwave oven, where a Faraday cage keeps gamma or "microwave" rays inside. For an example of the opposite kind of system, think of a hand-made aluminum foil lined bag that a shoplifter might use to get an RFID-equipped device out of a store without setting off security alarms.


    RFID Blocking

    What does the Faraday cage have to do with our credit cards?


    As RFID security has started to emerge as a serious problem, companies have started to put RFID blocking technology in certain consumer items, like wallets, in order to make sure that thieves do not have access to the RFID systems built into the banking cards.


    The issue is that someone can theoretically make a counterfeit reader, and walk around in a crowd, stealing information from others through targeting the RFID components of the cards in their wallets.


    With that in mind, Allett has instituted RFID blocking technology in its line of wallets.
    The technique is pretty simple -- by creating a thin lining in the components of a wallet, Allett ensures that these wallets are "electromagnetically opaque," or in other words, that the signals sent from a counterfeit reader will bounce right off of the wallet, without penetrating the exterior. This makes the wallet its own type of Faraday cage -- a "safe system" from the wireless signals that could be trying to steal information.


    Integrating RFID Blocking Into Wallet Design

    There are a number of things that Allett has done when looking at RFID blocking features in wallets.


    First, there's the issue of making the lining thin enough that wallets are still portable and practically useful for the people wearing them. Some of the better protectors make wallets a little bit bulky, which leads to a kind of trade-off in shopping. You want your own personal Faraday cage to be effective, but you also want something you can slip in your pocket.
    Buyers also don't want to sacrifice style for security -- the ideal wallet is an RFID blocking model that also features the neat leather or other high-quality materials that choosy shoppers want to carry around day to day.


    Then there's pricing -- RFID blocking wallets have to be relatively affordable.


    To serve all of these needs, Allett has figured out how to integrate an undetectable and light alloy lining into a wallet, to protect financial information without sacrificing design integrity. To get practical protection from street-side cyberattacks and peace of mind about your banking information, order your RFID blocking wallet today.


  • Allett: Wallets Made in USA

    As an American company making goods in the U.S.A., Allett understands the value of offering these types of products to markets. "Made in USA" is more than just a slogan, and it is more than just happenstance. It is a dedication to the quality you will find in 'Made in America' products, and to the economy as a whole.

    Made in USA

    Making the American Economy Work

    From the pages of high-minded journals to the regular op-ed page of your daily newspaper, you'll see a lot of talk about the outsourcing phenomenon and how it has hurt the country's economy. New technologies and other advances have allowed for a global market model, but that hasn't always been good for either consumers or producers. Economists agree that to be healthy, a country needs a manufacturing base, and ours has been crumbling away for decades, as big companies found ways to send jobs overseas, to save a few bucks.


    Selling and buying made in America products involves keeping economic profits at home, rather than investing in companies that ship capital offshore and never put anything back into the American economy. When you buy with the "made in USA" label, you know that you're contributing to more prosperity for those in your communities, keeping economic productivity flowing within our borders.


    American-Made Quality

    Although buying American-made products can help the economy, there's more to this label than just a contribution to our national success. There's also the quality that's inherent in these products.


    Many products made and shipped in from overseas have been found to be of pretty inferior design and durability. To put it simply, companies may cut corners on quality to undersell American companies that may charge more for products. But although American consumers are definitely price-conscious, price isn't everything.


    Part of the quality standard for American-made products involves the kinds of thinking that dominate local companies. People are dedicated to making things better, not just making them cheap. Also, companies can take all of that money spent on shipping inferior goods across oceans in shipping containers, and put that into materials and design for a much better result.


    For another example of American quality, look at sectors of the American economy that are thriving within manufacturing and industrial fields. Things like CNC machining and computer aided design are powerful tools for innovation and driving higher-design products, and these are the sectors that are growing within the American economy. While much of the market for cheap goods may be overseas, a lot of the markets for specialized, high-design products are still right here at home.


    American Labor

    It can also be instructive to look at the American labor picture. Yes, in America, there are labor laws and protections for workers. There are minimum wage laws – just look at what's happening now, as cities, states and municipalities join the executive office in arguing for and enacting living wages. That may drive up the price, but it also adds to the quality of products and the integrity of the process. Instead of "sweatshop goods," you get products crafted with pride, and with care, by compensated professionals.

    Wallets Made in USA

    Buying Allett Products

    At Allett, that high quality of our products illustrates the benefits of buying American. This starts with the materials that we use for our wallets -- with Napa leather, our supply chain is part of what promises our customers a higher standard and a more durable product. We take care to combine the best materials, the best labor and the best processes into products our customers will love – not just on the way home from the store, but for years and years of use.


    Then there's the design -- from the creation of specialized alloys in our RFID blocking wallets, to the high quality seam work in the entire product line, all of this is made possible by a deliberate choice to source products within the country and create a standard for manufacturing that benefits our customers. Take a look at the long-lasting products you can get from Allett and consider whether it makes more sense to buy one high-quality American-made product, or keep buying the kinds of cheap items you find in your local big box store.

  • Behind the Thin Wallet: How Our Structural Design Eliminated the Clutter

    Our wallet technology is not a magic trick, although it may appear as such. At Allett, we strive for a stylish yet comfortable wallet to fit in your back pocket. There should not be a telltale mountain where you sit, but a modern wallet for the busy man. Women too can benefit from a thin wallet, keeping purse sizes to a minimum. Take a look at some of our unique design perspectives to explore the thin and clutter-free wallet from Allett.

    Interior Material Choices

    Instead of using leather throughout the wallet, we chose a strong nylon for the interior. With a casual, but stylish appearance, this nylon allows the interior pockets to fold down into an extremely thin shape. Don't let the thin material fool you, however. Nylon is incredibly strong, providing some flexibility with a tear proof construction. Even if you quickly push cards and coins into your wallet, the nylon will not tear, unlike other wallets that look like they've seen a paper shredder. Your items are safely stowed within Allett's unique wallet design.

    Exterior Construction

    Whether you purchase our Nylon or Napa leather wallets, the outside material is ready for everyday use. Real cowhide has a natural barrier to tears and rips, making it one of the toughest materials to use for a wallet. Because of their natural strength, Allett's wallets do not need to be thick to offer a rip-free construction. A thin leather wallet protects your valuables better than a thick leather from another manufacturer.

    Pocket Design

    Typical wallets stack their internal pockets to provide a lot of space for numerous cards. However, we have found a clever way to space the cards out with strategic pocket design. There is no layering to our wallets. Longer pocket lengths allow us to spread your items out within the wallet, separating receipts from cash, for example. Without a stacking design, your wallet remains thin, regardless of your card-carrying habits.\

    Considering Coins

    In the past, coins were commonplace for everyday use. In today's world, however, coins are not as prevalent. Allett responded to the cultural shift by reducing the coin pocket size. A traditional wallet uses a large pocket, whereas our wallets only offer a small or medium size space. Reducing the coin pocket size provides room for more card pockets, along with a thin shape. With credit and debit cards shaping the economic landscape, coin pockets are not a dominant force in Allett's wallets.

    Moisture Factor

    If your wallet gets wet, it inevitably expands. For some wallets, this expansion may be permanent. Allett uses SoftTech nylon that actually wicks away water. If you drop the wallet in a puddle, for example, it can dry out quickly afterward. Empty the wallet, and allow it to dry. The thin wallet construction allows water to evaporate quickly, giving you a perfect wallet again. In fact, the only water-absorbing materials in the nylon wallet may be business cards, or other non-laminated items.

    Browse through Allett's quality line of thin wallets, from leather to recycled plastic materials. We select only the best materials to keep your wallet comfortable in your pocket. If you examine our pocket design, you'll see the innovation and care we take with all our products. At Allett, we are here to bring you a stylish and functional wallet for daily use.

  • Lost or Stolen Wallet? 5 Steps to Protecting Yourself

    At Allett, we strive to create thin wallets that are perfect for back pockets or purses. Because of their thin construction, they are often overlooked by thieves. They simply want an easy target, making a bulging wallet a more obvious choice than our thin wallet selections. However, if your wallet does end up stolen or lost, there are several ways to protect yourself before and after the event.

    1. Get an Identity Protection Plan

    If you are prone to losing your wallet, it is a good idea to purchase an identity protection plan before tragedy strikes. These plans monitor your activity by looking for your typical spending habits. When an unusual charge occurs, such as a several-hundred-dollar charge at a store you didn’t go to, the fraud department is immediately alerted. You are typically not at fault for these charges. Most protection programs return the money lost in your account balance in a timely manner. Select a plan carefully such as one offered by your bank or credit card.

    2. Don't Carry Everything

    When you open your wallet, there should not be receipts or old membership cards from three years ago. Take a moment to clean out your wallet. You only want to carry your essentials such as your ID and everyday credit or debit card. There is no need to carry social security cards or birth certificates at all. If your wallet is stolen, thieves could potentially have all of your information and take all of your assets. Keep these thieves in the dark by not carrying this information. Keeping less items in your wallet makes it easier for you to organize and harder for thieves to decipher your identity and personal information

    Lost Or Stolen Wallet Blog Post Image.

    3. File a Police Report

    You may be frustrated or even embarrassed about a lost wallet but, you need to report it to the police. They can send out a region-wide notification about your cards or identity. If thieves try to impersonate you, they may be caught easily by casting a wider net with the help of law enforcement. In fact, there could be a rash of stolen wallets in the area that make your report a helpful clue in finding the perpetrators. Include as much detail about your wallet as possible such as detailed marks or colors on the wallet's exterior.

    4. Set "Fraud Alert"

    For the next few weeks, you want to live on cash only. You need to set all of your checking, savings and credit cards to "fraud alert" with each individual banking institution. During this alert period, your banks need to set up new accounts and numbers, along with corresponding cards. You will be effectively reduced to cash transactions until you receive your new cards and accounts. Be patient during this time. It is better that you set this "fraud alert" to avoid any withdrawals from your accounts. Thieves can take thousands of dollars in mere seconds.

    5. Keep a List

    To avoid forgetting any cards in your wallet, make a list of all your cards' names and numbers. Keep the list hidden at home. If you ever have a wallet lost or stolen, you simply refer to your list to call all your creditors and banks for notification. This list should be updated constantly, when you add new accounts. However, it is still best to keep most cards and information at home, not in your wallet.

    Keep your wallet safe as you venture outside. Stay aware of your surroundings and keep most of your personal information at home. Protect yourself from monetary loss and identity theft by following these basic strategies.

  • Sciatica and You: Health Facts Behind the Damage of Sitting on Your Wallet

    We’ve all seen men with their huge wallets full of credit cards, memberships and bulging receipts sticking out of their back pocket. We have definitely also witnessed people sitting down on them to drive off to work or home. Doesn't that wallet hurt when they sit down? Because of habit, many people continue to sit on their bulky wallets, causing chronic pain in the back, hips, legs and feet. At Allett, we strive to educate our customers on the pains of a thick wallet and to present our revolutionary solution in our thin wallet products.

    Sciatica Basics

    Your sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in the human body, extending from your lower spinal cord through the hips and buttocks and eventually ending at your feet. All of your lower extremities depend on this major nerve to bring smaller nerves into contact with the rest of the central nervous system. If you have ever had sciatica, you know that it is a shooting and continual pain that emanates from the hip to the toes with intense fury. Sitting on a thick wallet is the perfect catalyst to set sciatica off.

    Compression Issues

    When you sit on a thick wallet, your weight distributes unevenly across your hips and legs. As a result, the sciatic nerve comes in contact with excessive pressure either on the left or right side. If it remains compressed, the nerve becomes irritated and sends out that signature pain that remains with you for days or weeks, depending on the compression's severity. The sciatic nerve is meant to be isolated from extraneous pressure so that it could function as the nerve signal transport area it was designed to be.

    Pelvis Positioning

    Depending on your age, it is possible to dislocate the pelvis by continually sitting on a thick wallet. The body naturally acclimates to certain repetitive motions, allowing it to find a balance in an improper position. If you sit on a thick wallet all day, the pelvis naturally shifts in reaction. This can actually cause it to lodge itself into a position where it pinches or rubs the sciatic nerve. Only a change in position, over the course of weeks or months, can begin to alleviate this issue. Many people seek out the help of a chiropractor, or other doctors, for pain relief.

    Muscle Pinches

    Bone is not the only material that can irritate the sciatic nerve. Your buttocks have several crisscrossing muscles, including the piriformis, which can actually pinch a nerve. As you sit on your wallet, the muscles in the buttocks are under tension to hold your torso upright. The piriformis muscle slides into a different position, effectively pinching the sciatic until the muscle can move out of that position. The resulting nerve pain can keep you up at night.

    Wallet Solutions

    Allett offers the thinnest wallet available that still provides the proper space for all your important belongings. You are not relegated to holding two or three cards at a time. Our innovative design allows you to carry your normal cards within a compact shape. Any improper sitting position aggravates the sciatic nerve, but Allett's wallets certainly relieve a lot of the pain and are a step in the right direction.

    Think of your daily sitting habits and let us help alleviate the pain. Browse through Allett's large selection of thin and sleek wallets to help you look, feel and sit comfortably. Sciatic pain can disappear if you choose a wallet without the bulk.

  • 7 Reasons Why You Should Switch To A Thinner Wallet

    Are you tired of carrying around a large, bulky wallet? If so, then it may be time to make the switch to an Allett wallet. Our wallets are designed to be significantly thinner and lighter weight while still being able to hold your IDs, credit cards, membership cards, cash, and more. Allett prides itself not only in offering the thinnest wallet available, but in manufacturing all of its wallets in the United States of America. By purchasing a wallet from Allett, you are not only getting a great product, but you are also contributing to the nation's economy and job growth at the very same time. Who knew purchasing such a small wallet could do so much?

    There are many benefits to carrying around a thinner wallet. Here are 7 that we came up with (share any more you can think of in the comments below!):

    Reason 1: Less Back and Neck Strain

    Many people do not realize just how much strain carrying around a bulky wallet can cause on the neck and back. By carrying around one that is lighter weight and thinner, you may be able to cut down on back and neck pain significantly.

    Reason 2: Less Clutter

    While Allett wallets are surprisingly spacious despite their thin size, they are still able to carry quite a bit. More than likely, however, switching to a thinner wallet will lead to you better organizing your cards and getting rid of junk you carry around and no longer need or use.

    Reason 3: Fits into Pants Easier

    Have you ever felt embarrassed by having a large bulge in the back of your pants caused by your thick wallet? Some men have even blown out their pant pockets so bad that a hole has torn in the back pocket.  Perhaps you have had a hard time fitting your large wallet into your purse? With a thinner wallet, you will never have to worry about this again.

    Reason 4: More Accessible

    By having a thinner wallet that does not get stuck in your pants pocket or in your purse, you can access it easier and quicker. This helps you to avoid awkward moments at checkout lines, where you spend a minute trying to dig your wallet out and another minute finding the right card.

    Reason 5: Better Organization

    With fewer cards and other unneeded items in your wallet, you can become a more organized person. You will always know how much cash you have on you and will spend less time fumbling through your wallet looking for different cards. Some people have even reported becoming more responsible spenders as a result of having an organized wallet!

    Reason 6: More Eco-Friendly

    By using less materials to have your wallet manufactured, you are actually doing the planet a huge favor. Less materials means less energy required to make the wallet in the first place, and fewer materials required means less resources that have to be used to fulfill your needs.

    Reason 7: Be a Trend Setter

    Why follow the same wallet trends that everybody else has already been following for the past several decades? Why not make yourself stand out in a crowd by picking up an innovative thin wallet. More than likely you will notice some eyes looking your way as you pull your new wallet out. Who knows? Maybe you will even be the first to start a new trend.
    As you can see, there are many reasons as to why you should make the switch from your current bulky and awkward wallet to a thinner one. When it comes time to pick out your new wallet, be sure to keep Allett in mind. We manufacture some of the thinnest and most durable wallets on the planet.


  • The Original Wallet

    If you have ever sat down with a thick wallet in your pocket, you know the startling, and uncomfortable, feeling as you quickly squat to remove the bulky item before sitting down again. Allett wallet company understands this issue because it was the inspiration for the Original Wallet. As a family owned and operated company, Allett's main concept grew out of the founder's physical pain.

    The Problem

    Ken Obenski, Allett's founder, sat for most of his working days. Because he was always busy, he usually sat on his wallet and did not think much of this fact. He slowly developed sciatica, or a pinched nerve. The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in your body, extending from the lower spine and down both legs.

    The sciatica pain was so great that Ken opted for surgery. Because sciatica is a relatively common ailment, he was not aware that it was caused by one specific item. After receiving the surgery, he spoke to his doctor about the root cause.

    A Solution

    A bulky wallet was the cause of Ken's pain. He was stunned. Millions of men sat on their wallets every day. As a solution, he decided to look for a thin wallet. As he perused the stores, it occurred to him that his search was in vain. He decided to create his own wallet.

    His Concept

    Ken wanted a wallet that was thin, but still functional for everyday use. He came up with an ingenious design. Side-by-side pockets fold together to fit neatly in a standard pocket. These pockets could hold up to 24 cards, making them just as useful as a standard, bulky wallet. There was even a division for cash and receipts to accommodate the busy man.

    Core Materials

    Developing the thinnest wallet wasn't the final goal, however. Ken also wanted the finest materials. Spinnaker Nylon was a prime ingredient for a quality wallet. With a smooth texture ready to withstand almost any application, Ken had his Original Wallet's main construction figured out.
    This material made the wallet light and thin, but also water-resistant. If you accidentally dropped the wallet in a puddle, for example, it would dry out quickly to prevent damage, mold and mildew.

    It Doesn't Stop There

    Allett's Original Wallet line expanded with a high quality Napa leather version and eventually developed security features to keep up with the times. The newest addition to our line is the Original Wallet with Allett’s KeepSafe RFID security. With alloy film construction, your thin wallet is an instant barrier to would-be thieves looking for an easy target.
