“You might recognize the name Allett, it got its reputation for producing the “World’s Thinnest Wallet!” Not only that, but you may notice that the even company name is derived from the word ‘wallet.’ We got our hands on the RFID Slim Original and took it out on several trips to see how it held up. The Slim Original is based on Allett’s celebrated design, retails for $50, and the version we used protects against electronic theft by incorporating an electronic signal blocker right into the fabric.”
“Allett wallets (think wallet without the w) are known as the thinnest wallet out there, but there is more to them than that. They are hand made in the USA at the San Diego factory and have a 3-year warranty. 3 Year warranty on a wallet? Yep, they are that well made. Their line up of wallets are not only very thin and lightweight, they are uber functional.”

As a six year, veteran exhibitor at the Outdoor Retailer Winter and Summer Market shows, Allett knows…
“I never thought I needed a wallet specifically for backpacking. Even though I considered my everyday wallet too bulky and heavy to take with me into the backcountry, I generally adapted by stuffing some bills, a card and my I.D. into a ziplock baggie. That works, but it drove the OCD in my to maddening levels. So I continued to search for something that was lightweight, yet still had the functional and organizational abilities of a standard wallet. That’s when I learned about Allett.”
“Regardless of how many times I’ve tried, though, I am not a front-pocket-wallet guy. I appreciate the size of them, but it drives me nuts to have my wallet up front all the time, even if it is small. So I’ve begun my quest for slim-but-roomy back pocket wallets, and Allett came up as an option…”

“The political left and right may seem to have nothing in common, but there is at least one area in which the opposite ends of the political spectrum are in surprisingly close agreement: the issue of privacy from the government. Conservatives tend to fulminate against IRS snoopery and civil forfeiture and liberals tend to put more emphasis on the all-encompassing spying of the NSA. The principle is the same: nobody likes to feel that there are eyes watching everything they do.”
San Diego, California (Dec. 1, 2016) – After taking over the business in 2008, siblings and owners Adam and Bridget Muscat have been working hard to push Allett, a San Diego based wallet manufacturer since 1995, into the outdoor space. It wasn’t until 2016 when they decided it was time for the brand to receive a facelift.
“The ALLETT ORIGINAL WALLET was built for quality, toughness, comfort, durability, adventure and style! Designed to be slim, yet big enough to fit important cards, cash and papers needed in a wallet, the Original is small enough to be slipped into your front or back pockets where it will go unnoticed whether you are out hiking, climbing, traveling or in a business meeting.”
