Innovative Smart Wallets from Ekster

ekster
In this digital age, we should feel less burdened to carry a physical wallet as we can do most transactions using our smartphones. In reality, this isn't always the case. We still need to use credit cards and ID cards where digital transactions are not accepted. We love the innovative, compact design, and ease of carrying the Ekster Wallets!

The soft environmentally certified leather wallets are attractive and come in a variety of colours. The RFID blocking tech helps protect important everyday valuables. The quick card access mechanism, of pressing the button on the bottom of the wallet to eject the cards, fans the cards out giving easy access to the cards we want. With this, there is no need to look through the wallet to find a card. 

Since, Ekster wallets are minimalist, they are designed to carry the most important cards. You can carry a maximum of 12 cards. This helped us clean up our wallet to only carry the essential cards we use regularly. We hadn't realized there were so many obsolete and useless cards that we were carrying in our wallets so this was the perfect opportunity to clear them out. For most of the cards, we have opted to use a digital wallet. Although, we rarely use cash to make payments, if need be there is a detachable elastic band to hold a few bills folded.

Interesting fact -> Ekster is the Dutch word for magpie – a deceptively smart bird with a penchant for collecting and hiding shiny things.

Parliament Wallet - Ekster's flagship wallet model Parliament is named after the collective noun for flock of Magpies.

Vachetta Parliament Wallet- Tanned in Tuscany, it is a limited edition Italian take on their flagship smart wallet.

The design of the Parliament wallets look stylish and minimalistic, but have enough room to carry the essential cards including cash. We love the smell of the premium leather and the always new look of these wallets. The built-in aluminum card holder holds the cards securely and also helps to maintain the shape of the wallets. Since the wallet is smaller and stockier than a traditional bi-fold, we find it easier to store it in the front pocket of the pants rather than the back pocket.

We can easily add a solar powered tracker to these wallets to make it unlosable. The trackers can be paired up with smart devices such as Google Home and Alexa to know where the wallet is, in case you lose it. These trackers need about 3 hours of solar charge to last for 2 to 3 months. It has a ringer, can be voice-activated, and can take remote group selfies.

These lightweight wallets are not bulky, which makes it perfect for everyday use. Ekster's smart accessories are a great gift for anyone that carries a wallet, keys, or a laptop. There are so many options of Wallets on their website. To make our decision easier, there is a small quiz on their website to help narrow down the choices to suit our lifestyle. Take advantage of their largest Black Friday sale!
