Minimalist wallets become more and more popular every day! And this is no surprise – with so many iPhone and Android apps to scan and manage store incentive cards, business cards and bills as well as the raise of virtual wallets like Google Wallet and Apple Pay, there’s no need you still carry a bulky wallet every day! So, turning to a minimalist wallet type that only holds a couple of cards and some cash seems to be a reasonable move!
Today we’ll check two minimalist nylon wallets from the Swedish store Ulterior Motive – The Nylon Black and the Nylon Hexagon Black models.
Both models feature 2 card pockets on each side and a middle pocket designed for cash. The wallets are made of strong nylon material and feature vibrant colors interior lining (vibrant orange for the Nylon Black model and pink for the Hexagon Black one).
I used the wallets for a couple of days each and these two models, given their simple and minimalist build, are some of the slimmest wallets I tried yet. Although they were filled with 2-3 credit cards, a couple of bills and a SD card, they were barely visible when carried in jeans front or back pockets – check out the video and the review pics for more details …
The Nylon Black and the Nylon Hexagon Blackminimalist wallets will set you back $25.73 and are also available in white and navy versions.

Plinth is a minimalist, universal tablet stand designed to make your life easier at home, at the office and while on the go! The Plinth is a truly universal device and works with all iPad models, Android and Windows phones and tablets, Kindle, iPhone – with or without cases. Not bigger than an iPhone 4, the Plinth stays quiet in your pocket, bag or tablet sleeve waiting to help you when you need it. Once you’re ready to fix your tablet into a more convenient reading or working position, the Plinth deploys with a touch of a button and is ready to offer a more comfortable and ergonomic position in less than a second – check out the video for a full demo on how it works.
I used the Plinth for about two days and I find a perfect mix between portability and usability. Big enough to comfortably and securely hold a 10.1-in tablet, while small enough to fit in your jeans pocket (literally), the Plinth is one of the most convenient tablet stands I came across. Not only that, but, as my regular PC is a small 11.6-in laptop, I used the Plinth as a laptop stand for these two days and it worked out perfectly. On the lowest angle position, the Plinth allowed me to raise my laptop to about 3-4-in (that’s about 10-12 cm), just what I needed for a more comfortable working position and better heat dissipation.
The Plinth is available in 4 color variations (graphite/grey, graphite/teal, white/grey, white/green) and will set you back $32 US, which, given it ingenious design and increased portability it’s a very reasonable price. Check it out …
