Why humans need a better wallet…
The HuMn Wallet was born out of necessity and lots of traveling. Being two dudes on the go, we’ve tried almost every type of wallet, money clip, card case, and wallet mutation out there. We were looking for a way to keep what we needed in our wallets, while getting rid of the things we didn’t. Sounds simple enough right? Wrong.
Some card cases could hold cash and cards, but couldn’t hold business cards. Some could handle cash and business cards, but stored them on top of each other, which meant that you had to pull out all of your cards to find the one you were looking for. Others simply could only hold a fixed number of cards and cash.
All of the wallets we tried had a common problem, while they might start out “looking” slim, they would take on the usual bloated appearance once we put our cards and cash in them. It didn’t matter if it was cheap or expensive ,they all fell short in one way or another. To make things worse, almost all of the wallets out there didn’t even protect against RFID skimming.
Redundancy up the Yin Yang…
Most people don’t wear suspenders and a belt at the same time, because it looks silly and more importantly, it’s a bit redundant. Yet that’s exactly what quite a few of our friends do when carrying credit cards and money. We have friends who carry a card case and a wallet, or a money clip and a wallet, or a credit card case, a business card case, and… (wait for it)… a wallet. With smartphones capable of storing pictures, contacts, and holding information, it seems the fate of most wallets is to become a graveyard for old receipts more than anything else.
So here’s the rub…
We wanted a wallet that:
- is lightweight
- protects against RFID skimming
- adapts to the user, not the user having to adapt to it
- works for right and left handed people
- is low profile
- is minimally designed
- can handle any climate and environment
- will never wear out
- allows easy access to cash, credit and business cards
- wouldn’t turn into just another portable receipt holder
- wouldn’t be limited to a fixed number of cards you could carry
It had to do all these things and still have a design that was minimal and looked amazing!
Humans deserve a better quality wallet…
We’ve spent the last 11 months obsessing over this project to get it just right. Through endless tinkering with different types of materials and dimensions we’ve been able to distill what we believe a modern wallet should be.
From the steel fastener and super durable flat elastic shock strap we’re using to secure the plates together; to incorporating an expanded aluminum mesh that blocks radio frequency signals in our carbon fiber plates, it was important to us to make sure that we were putting in your hands the most ergonomic and cleanest looking wallet you’ve ever laid your eyes on.
