    This is the 3rd ultra slim wallet my wife has bought me. Great wallets…reason she buys me a new one every few years….well I am a guy, my wallets are used a lot…get little dirty around the edges & some (very minor) fraying.
    Did I tell you I sail, work on my boat & work on my old cars…hmmm wonder how they get stained now & then? 🙂

    I have used the ultra slim allett for about 20 years. I am on my second one. I love the thin profile even fully loaded. I have even bought them for my sons and they love them. You should add RFID to the ultra thin and it would perfect.

    I love my All-ett. I am on my 3rd one and have given several as gifts. The only thing missing is a good color selection for men. I miss my Red Original and would love to have another.

    I also have a 10 year+ old All-ett. I’m obsessed! I love it! It still functions, but I figure since I’m starting to develop some holes at the corners I should finally spring for a new one. So thin. So light. So perfect! I won’t ever use another wallet!

    Love my allett. I finally need to replace it after ???? years. My only complaint is that it no longer comes in red. I need a wallet in bright colors for when I drop it in dark places, like the floorboard of my car.

    I’m at 11 years + and the stitching on one of the interior dividers is finally breaking down. Best wallet I have ever owned and will be replacing it with another.

    I have the original, original Ultra Slim Wallet (when it was still made out of sail cloth) and ten years later, I am finally ordering a replacement. My old wallet is still fully functional — it’s my everyday carry — but it’s got some holes worn into the corners and the edges are fraying so I figure it’s time for a fresh new one.
    Spending $20 on something that gets used daily and lasts over a decade is unheard of in today’s world of planned obsolescence. If this latest version lasts even half as long, it will still be an amazing value and great buy.

    I’m hard on my things. I wear everything out/get it too dirty to use/lose it. But I love my All-ett and have carried one for almost 10 years and now I’m almost ready to buy my third one — they’ve lasted longer than a leather wallet ever did, and filled with 18 credit-card thickness cars, 8 business cards (currently), some money and some receipts it’s about as thick FILLED as a leather wallet is EMPTY. It weighs nothing, and with 4 places for cards, I keep it organized with “credit,” “food/loyalty,” “personal,” and “other” sections to find things quickly. I only wish they’d make an RFID wallet in all-nylon (without leather).

    Ultra Slim Original holds all the cards I need in a much slimmer package than any other wallet. Carry it in my left front pocket along with an iPhone 7+. Love the beryl blue color.

    Got my wallet in the mail just a couple days after ordering. Free delivery apparently meant super-fast free delivery all the way to Florida, No corners cut there. Since this is my first Allett I cannot attest to its longevity, but it is by far my favorite wallet I have ever owned so far. I was afraid that the two-card-high design would make it too tall for my back pocket, but it is just the right size. It has a pocket for money, another for notes and misc., and it is incredibly comfortable. I even got the wallet pen which is very convenient. I drive for a living and a wallet can become very uncomfortable after several hours on your backside. Not this one. And if it lasts a year I think I’ve gotten my money’s worth, let alone the 3 years it is warrantied for. Keep up the good work guys!

    My second wallet just wore out after more then five years. I bought my first one when I read about it in a newspaper. When it wore out I bought two more (must have been a package deal), and just now moved into my third wallet. Came to this web site to see if they are still being made, and will order a spare to keep for the next time I need a new one–in five or more years.

    I love these wallets. I stick with the sail cloth ones to stay thinner. I show mine to everyone who possesses a mammoth wallet to show them what they’re missing. I easily have just as many cards in mine as others do in theirs. The layout is the best I’ve ever seen.

    The rubber in the card pockets is a nice upgrade to the previous generations. It helps the cards stay in place much better.

    I find it interesting that others have gotten 10+ years out of their wallets. I must be hard on mine as i usually get no more than 5 out of one. I’m on my 3rd. I still have no complaints about my wallet and find it quite durable.

    Lastly, I miss the wide variety of colors that used to exist. I enjoyed having a purple or red wallet.

    I just ordered my second ultra slim original. I bought the same one about 10 years ago, after my father in law had purchased one and it’s nice to see that there are products out there that come as advertised. After 10 years, it is starting to show some wear and tear, but no tears or rips anywhere. Thanks for making a great product

    I bought one of the originals about 15 years ago at the Del Mar Fair and since ordered them online, I have had no other type of wallet since then. My wife liked mine so much she wanted one to keep her money and cards in her purse. I love them!!

    Outstanding wallet design!

    1. It’s a double decker, two story wallet. This alone will halve the thickness of any regular wallet.
    2. The nylon material is super thin and tough. It’s also half the thickness of thin leather.

    Add this up and you’re a quarter the thickness of a typical thin wallet. That’s really significant and you can immediately feel the difference. Actually you can barely feel anything and that’s the point.

    In my case, it also changed my mindset to minimalism. I now carry around just what I need. There’s no reason to carry every card I own. The rest of my wallet luggage like a zoo membership card, or a AAA card, can go in a more storage focussed wallet in my glove compartment of my car.

    A life changer that my back will likely be thanking me for in my later years.

    I have been using this wallet for as long as I can remember and giving out numerous ones as gifts to friends and family. Everyone has been incredibly grateful [and rear ends relieved] by switching over to this wallet!! The ONLY concern I [and others] have EVER had with the wallet is not feeling it in our pockets and nervously slapping our pants pocket to make sure it is still there! I also appreciate not having a ‘blocking RF’ version as I use the wallet containing an ID I need to frequently ‘tap into’ rooms at work with. Superb product!!

    This is an amazing product–inexpensive, well made in America, indestructible, and WAY more comfortable than traditional wallet. The Ultra-Slim carries a ton of stuff, securely and comfortably in my pocket. This model is all pliable fabric that lasts a very long time. The fabric has a slight texture to it that makes it stable in your pocket, and I think a more difficult target for pickpockets–a concern if you travel much! It has two currency pockets as well, to keep foreign currency separated & organized.

    I’ve used these wallets since they were first mentioned on NPR many years ago. They are nice and thin, which I really appreciate. I do miss some of the brighter colors they used to come in. But they keep your cards easy to find since they are not all in a big bunch. And they handle getting wet or sweaty very well – I just throw it in the wash if needed. I really like them. They last me 3-4 years I would say.

    This is a great wallet overall but the ripstop nylon only lasts for about a year or so you carry it in denim jean pockets. I did have the Eco model that was made out of recycled plastic bottle material and that wallet lasted me over 7 years and is just now wearing out. I have feverishly looked all over the internet for another Eco model but they are no longer available so I’ll have to begin buying a new one every year with the nylon.

    I’m not sure how long I’ve had the Ultra Slim, but I’ve put this poor wallet through hell. Water, snow, hiking, kayaking, skiing – the wallet goes where I go. It’s light, thin and durable. Not much more to say.

  35. Rated 5 out of 5


    This wallet’s been pretty near-perfect for me. I’ve bought two; the first lasted something like 5 years, and the new one is still holding strong after several years. (Don’t have exact numbers.)

    Positives: so thin- so, so thin!; holds plenty of cards; split bill compartment allows for keeping receipts (or whatever) separate from money.
    Cons: doesn’t last forever – it is fabric. If you’re the kind of person who sits on their wallet and otherwise abuses it, like I am, some of the seams will eventually give. But I think the price and thinness make up for that. Very happy with this wallet, even though I’ve replaced it once.

    I have had two of these wallets over the last few years and they have been absolutely amazing. I have to carry a bunch of credit and business cards and this is the only wallet I have ever had that doesn’t weigh a ton and make a huge bulge on my butt or in my suit pockets.

    I used to have the slim fold wallet made with tyvek. This wore out on me in 2 years and the cards kept flying out of my wallet. I purchased the nylon slim wallet and I love it so much. The inner rubber lining in the card pockets are genius. This keeps the cards secured no matter what. I’m actually considering buying the leather slim wallet in the near future. Thank you allet!

    I’m now on my second one, each has lasted five years or more. Every now and then I buy “fancier” thin leather wallet — and I never use them, because no matter how thin the leather is, it doubles the bulk in my pocket. Go Nylon! . I bought a mini pen for five bucks and change at Amazon (Zebra SL-F1 Mini Ballpoint Pen, 0.7 mm) and it fits right in the fold of the Allett, It’s unnoticeable, and I always have a pen with me.

    I got my first Allett in 2006, before they had the rubber grips in the card pockets, and I replaced it with another one of the same model a short time ago. The new one has rubber grips and is my daily carry, with about 15 cards that I have to have “on me” plus about 5 business cards. The 2006 Allett, slightly frayed but still functional, serves as my “storage wallet” and sits in my glove compartment, holding a large number of gift cards, store and restaurant loyalty cards, library card, etc that I don’t need every day (currently 31 cards). The older Allett without the rubber grips has a larger capacity. I also carry the thin business card case as an insert in my original Allett and I use it for when I’m talking my girlfriend out for the evening and I only need my DL and a couple of credit cards. Works for me, thanks for the great products!

    I used to have a big, bulky wallet and it hurt so bad to wear it I would put it in my coat pocket, glove box, etc. and kept losing it. Now I keep this super-thin wallet in my pocket all day and hardly even notice it is there. My first one lasted about 3-4 years and I called to order another and they sent me a replacement one free. This one is about 8 years old and is starting to get a hole in one corner. I am ready to buy a replacement now.. Great wallet.

    I’ve had mine for about ten years. Starting to fray on corners. Ordered a new one for when old one wears out completely. Was disappointed to find the rubber grips – they reduce capacity by 4 cards and make it a little tougher to slip the cards out easily. I understand why the grips were put there, but for me, a little extra care when flipping All-ett open prevents cards from dumping. I wish there was the option for the old no-grip style.

    I’ve had my nylon original wallet for about 10 or 11 years now, and it has been fantastic. It is just now showing enough wear and pocket stretch to justify replacement. $20 every decade for a new wallet is a pretty good deal, I would say. I carry around 24 credit-card style cards (credit cards, hotel cards, other membership cards, etc.), plus a handful of business cards, plus a few more thinner cards (restaurant frequent visitor stamp cards and the like), plus a half dozen of those little mini-cards that are supposed to go on keychains. This wallet handles them all, plus some cash, and is still the thinnest, most comfortable wallet I’ve ever owned. Someday, our science fiction future will arrive and we can just have a retinal scan done to connect to all our information; until then, these wallets are the best thing going.

    My first wallet has lasted around eleven years and it’s really still in good shape. Just starting to fray a little and the inside pocket flap is torn slightly. But hey, for only $20 I’m replacing it with the same original style model. Love this wallet and how it stores my cash and cards. By storing my most common cards at the top and bottom of each card stack I have immediate access to eight cards without pulling out a pile of cards and having to dig through them. Thanks for a such a cool idea and they are ‘Made in the USA’

    Had mine four years. It was a gift. Excellent durability and functionally. I use a thin rubber band around my cards to prevent them from slipping out of their pockets *Comment from Allett: There is now a rubber grip in the credit card pockets to hold your cards securely in your wallet.

    Years later (like 5+) and my original wallet is still functioning great. I’m back on the website to look for another and to see how things have changed. I don’t think I’ll ever look for another wallet again. Really great design and layout. My wife laughs at me a little for continuing to use it, but it has just held up so long, and has been a great wallet. I will be buying my future wallets from these guys.

    It’s a brilliant design, and I love it. It fits perfectly in my back pocket, it doesn’t wear an outline in jeans like normal wallets do, and it is very thin. I carry 13 cards in mine, yet it’s still nice and thin. It is super convenient to use, too. So fast to remove from pocket, open, select and swipe a card, return card to wAllett, and return wallet to pocket. I just bought two to give as gifts.

    Sure, I’ve got wear on it and some small corner holes – but it lives in my back pocket all day, every day. 8 years of daily use. By far the thinnest wallet I’ve ever had, from the materials to the design – designed to be THIN, while retaining durability. I expect to get another 2 years out of it – but that’s what I expected 2 years ago. I have a “backup” that’s been waiting around for 4 years now…Anyway, this wallet, full of all the junk I carry is thinner when full, than my leather wallet was when EMPTY. Mind blowing.

    Great design and very durable. I had mine for many years, but eventually it wore out. I replaced it with some crap $15 wallet I found on Amazon. Bad decision, can’t stand having it in my back pocket. I just ordered a new Allet Eco Thin, cannot wait for it to arrive.

    Love my SoftTech Nylon Original. The wallet does not leave any *footprint*, worn spots, or bulges. I have worn Levi jeans for decades… typically…with a wallet in the left rear outside pocket. Every wallet I have had in the past would *overtime* leave worn spots; the ALLETT does not.

    These wallets were designed by a genius. Not only are they super thin and light, they are tough. After owning them for years, the only other wallet I would ever consider purchasing is the black or brown leather wallet in the same style made by ALLETT.

    Incredibly comfortable when you sit down with wallet in the back pocket. Husband claims it is the best/most comfortable wallet he has ever had. He’s in his 70s so I guess he’s had a lot of wallets. Also bought one for myself and a passport case as well, We have 4 items from this company. The big pull for the purchases was that these products are made by a small company in the USA!

    I’ve bought three of these wallets over the years; one I gave to my son and the other two I keep for a change of colour (black or grey). Cannot be matched for thinness or practicality. A little problem with stitching on the oldest one was easily fixed. I also have a leather one for more formal occasions!

    You will not find a thinner or more practical wallet. You can carry loads of cards and cash in it. I typically carry about 18 cards plus about 20 bills at a time and it is THIN. It’s small, VERY functional, comfortable, discreet(pick-pockets?), and durable.

    I have carried this wallet for at least 8 years. It is a truly amazing product. The thin nylon takes a little getting used to at first, but I quickly grew to love it. This wallet is thin even with the 20 plus cards and receipts I carry. My back no longer aches from carrying a fat wallet. Highly recommended!
