We all love to think that size doesn’t matter, but, heavens, does it ever! Well, maybe it isn’t important for everything in life, but when it comes to wallets, it’s paramount.
Meet carbon fiber wallets — one of the slimmest, coolest, strongest men’s wallets on the market right now. So, let me explain what carbon fiber is and how it really works.
We used to carry our huge, thick, heavy leather wallet around in my back pocket. However, over time, we were starting to feel some pain in the back. And just so you know — we are still in our early 30s.
We couldn’t stand the niggling pain every day. So we did some research.
Turns out that sitting on your big, thick wallet can actually hurt your back and cause symptoms of sciatica. And putting it in your front pocket can create a painful pinch when you’re sitting.
So when we realized that we needed to switch to something different, we started looking for a smart, durable, slim men’s wallet. And that’s when we met carbon fiber.
What’s Carbon Fiber?
Carbon fiber is a material made from polyacrylonitrile. This is an organic polymer that gets stretched into thin, long strands and then carbonized at extremely high temperatures with no exposure to oxygen. Fibers made this way are then twisted together and sort of woven into one of the most durable materials known to man.
Oh, and have I mentioned that carbon fiber is incredibly thin? Carbon fibers are 5–10 micrometers in diameter.
Main characteristics of this material are high stiffness, low weight, high chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance and high tensile strength. That’s why it has found so many applications — in military, aerospace, motorsports, civil engineering, and many other fields.
Simply put, a wallet made out of this material is five times more durable than a steel wallet would be. That means that a carbon fiber men’s wallet will easily last you a lifetime.
It’s Smart, Techie, Healthy and Fashionable
Most men tend to use very few accessories that show off their sense of style or their creativity. I’m one of those men myself. However, a wallet is just one of the ways to subtly present who you are.
It needs to be an accessory that can fit both casual and formal occasions.
But why carbon fiber out of all the materials in the world?
- A carbon fiber wallet is the best of both worlds. On the one hand, it looks amazing, it’s stylish, and it’s classy. On the other hand, it’s high-tech, modern, and versatile.
- Thanks to their incredibly thin construction, one of these men’s slim wallets fit perfectly in both front and back pockets. And these will keep you away from those nagging back pains.
- These slim wallets are extremely durable and tend to look as good as new even after years of constant use.
- Most carbon fiber wallets offer RFID protection. That means that your ID, credit cards and all other important digital documents are completely safe from Wireless Identity Theft.
