The World's Smartest Wallet for the World's Smartest Dad
It's only been three years since their viral launch and Ekster has quickly become the world's largest smart wallet brand with products now available in 100 stores - from Macy's to Amazon!
It's no wonder why more and more men are tossing their old, outdated wallets and upgrading to Ekster's smart wallets - if you think about it, your wallet holds so much sensitive information and goes with your everywhere you go. Why wouldn't you want to keep that information as secure as possible?
When Ekster asked us to review one of their new smart wallets, we were happy to accept their offer (find out which wallet we got to sample a little later.)
Want to know some of the amazing qualities that Ekster has quickly become known for worldwide?
Ekster's design process mirrors a blend of tradition and innovation that is characteristic of all their products. Each product is hand-crafted from the highest quality genuine leather available around the globe, sourced from LWG gold-rated tanneries which only serve top-of-the-line luxury leather brands. Every product that makes it through their design process adheres to 5 criteria that distinguish Ekster products from the others on the market: Efficiency, Safeguarding, Innovation, Quality Craftsmanship, and Style.
The founders of Ekster started this brand because they were fed up with inefficient everyday carry items: people’s products didn’t make sense to them. Why should you carry around an unnecessarily clunky wallet when you really only need 5-6 cards? They patented their own easy access cardholder: at the click of an ergonomically-placed button, all your cards are presented in a smooth, staggered manner. The design of this slim wallet means you can fit the most cards in the smallest space and gracefully access them at any time. Every product Ekster releases is designed with this goal: to be optimally efficient.
Your wallet is more than your money… it's your data, your identity, and your way to move through the world! That’s why Ekster chose to safeguard every aspect of their EDC products. When you purchase a wallet, you’re not only getting an RFID-secured credit card holder, but a trackable card holder too. With Ekster's crowd GPS technology, your slim wallet can connect remotely to your phone so you can always find it at the click of a button. The app will provide you with its exact location, and will even give you directions back to it!
At Ekster, innovation means bringing together the luxury of classic leather goods and the invention of slim technologies to create a wallet that's the best of both worlds. Their products were named some of the best Kickstarter wallets because their hidden technology integrates seamlessly into everyday life, making each day a little simpler. They found a way to make new high-tech features work with the technology you're already used to carrying around; it just makes sense.
Ekster's goal was to create a product that was bursting with advanced technology, but still had a classic style to it. That’s why they decided to use a slim, minimalist design to create wallets from the best quality leather on the market. An Ekster wallet is completely attuned to your lifestyle; it's unique to you, molding according to the way you use it. Ekster wallets are also designed for versatility, keeping you stylish both on the job and in the streets.
At Ekster, the legacy of modern Dutch design comes with the best quality of leather craftsmanship, a unique and thorough design process, and a desire to constantly improve. They wanted to find a way to hold on to the old world beauty of leatherworking, while giving their products the needed innovative touch of slim technology. That’s why they only use high-end, top-grain leather from LWG gold-rated tanneries; better for the environment, and better for you.
In exchange for our review, we were given a sample of the Ekster Parliament Wallet & Tracker Card in Classic Brown - it is also available for purchase in shades Nappa Black, Steel Blue and Roma Cognac.
Keep reading to find out what we loved about the Ekster Parliament Wallet & Tracker Card and where you can buy one!
What we loved about the Ekster Wallet & Tracker Card:
Firstly, we have to mention the stellar first impression we had upon receiving our Ekster Wallet and Tracker Card. The wallet and the tracker card both arrived in very attractive, modern-looking black gift boxes which we think makes them the perfect hassle-free gift for the special man in your life (no wrapping required!)
We loved the look and feel of the Ekster Parliament wallet. The premium European leather is touchably soft yet very durable. The sample we received was in "Classic Brown" and we love the color - it's a perfect, neutral dark sable brown shade.
The bi-fold smart wallet feature makes the Ekster Parliament wallet one the coolest and most inventive wallets we've seen yet! Both the Parliament (shown in the photo above) and the Senate models have an aluminium cardholder in which you can store 4 to 6 cards - depending on how many are embossed. When you want to use a card, simply push the trigger and your cards are attractively ejected in a staggered manner for you to easily select from.
We were able to store 6 cards plus cash in our Ekster Parliament wallet. We love that the wallet never felt bulky or heavy and fit perfectly in any attire from day to day. The Ekster Parliament wallet & tracker fit perfectly in my husband's suit jackets on work days and also fit fabulously in his jeans pocket on his casual days off.
We also loved that the Ekster wallet can be purchased with a tracker card, which adds extra security and feeling of ease when traveling or on the go as much as we are. If your wallet gets misplaced or stolen, you will be able to easily track it's exact location with the click of a button!
We think the Ekster Parliament Wallet and Tracker Card is the perfect gift for dads & husbands - and not just for them, but for every special man in your life (grandpas, brothers and uncles need cool wallets too, right?)
Ekster has a wonderful selection of attractive wallets & cardholders for men starting at just $69 -they even have a case for your iPhone!
