How’s that wallet of yours looking? A bit raggedy, maybe a couple seams pulling loose? Want to put an end to that forever? Think about the Obtainium – made of hinged metal panels that fits your pocket probably better than any other wallet you’ve ever owned.
Credit cards seem to be taking over the bulk of retail transactions these days and most consumers carry more cards than cash. So went the logic for creating the Obtainium. Hold a maximum number of credit cards – make them easy to access and leave a little space for folding money.
Problem solved – product created.
Obtainium is about the same size as an unloaded trifold leather wallet. The sides are eased in at an angle, making it much easier to slip in and out of your pocket. The sides are perfectly smooth, so no uncomfortable seams or flaps rubbing against your skin.
When I’m heading to a meeting, I can load up four credit cards, my driver’s license and a dozen business cards. Any of those then can be withdrawn without even opening the hinged metal halves.
Truth be told, I usually end up opening it to show it off as most people put on an inquisitive look when they see it. Everyone so far has loved the quality feel and its striking industrial beauty.
As easy as it is to use, your cards will never fall out when the Obtainium is turned upside down. Special clips with O-rings hold the contents firmly in place.
Getting creative, you can even carry more than cash and credit cards. Each side has a recess that’s deep enough to carry flash drives, wallet tools, or anything else just under a quarter of an inch thick.
Obtainium is not an inexpensive wallet – but it could be the last one you ever need to buy. A three-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship means the manufacturer is pretty sure of their product. Shipping is free.
Being aluminum, it won’t be a problem if it gets wet. (If you get pushed into a pool at that crazy party, your Obtainium is going to come out much better than your cellphone.)
If looking good and sporting a modern day wallet is your style, you’ll want to look at one of the four color models available from http://obtainium.co.
