There are many situations in life when your fancy, minimalist, cool leather wallet simply won’t cut it! Think about going to the sandy beach, jogging, cycling, walking in the rain or even diving into the pool in a hot, sunny afternoon! Obviously, you can find alternate solutions like wrapping your existing wallets into a plastic baggy or leaving it home, but you get my point – why not make yourself a favor and buy a cool waterproof minimalist wallet?
Built by 2 Spanish cyclists to answer the specific need of protecting their gear from the elements and sweat while racing their bikes, the LockBox is a minimalist wallet made of platinum silicone (incorporates platinum in the silicone composition to improve properties of the conventional material) which allows you to carry a couple of coins, keys, memory cards, a handful of bills and credit cards or even a wedding ring if needed (don’t think about what I thought!!!) in full protection against water, dust, snow and mud. The silicone wallet is rated to resist temperatures between -60 to 230 degrees Celsius (that’s around -76 to 446 degrees Fahrenheit), it’s soft silicone shell is perfect for sports which present the risk of falling or bumping into other persons or things, features exchangeable shells, a raised jaw lock for improved security and tightness and it does very well the job it was designs for – protect your gear!
I used this wallet for the past couple of weeks in situations where using a regular wallet was not appropriate (playing in snow, jogging, being caught by rain) and my gear was always OK. For those worried about it’s small size, here’s what I carried around – two $20 notes, two apartment keys (I placed them in the coin placings), one credit card, 3 business cards and one Micro SD card inserted into a SD card adapter. Cool, handy and reliable …
