Take Your Daily Carry to the Next Level
When it comes to the items you carry every day, it’s essential to have a why for each one. If something you’re bringing with you on your daily journey isn’t needed or doesn’t get the job done right, it’s time to lighten your load— or upgrade. A wallet is a key component in any person’s daily carry. Ideally, a good wallet gives you access to your ID, credit or debit card, and cash, all while looking great and taking up minimal space in your pocket.
Sadly, this isn’t the case when it comes to the wallets many of you carry around day-to-day. Many men settle for mediocre wallets that are bulky, poorly made, and not designed for modern life. The fact is, life has changed dramatically since the days of the old-school bifold wallets your dad and grandad toted around.
Most of the transactions that you complete on a day-to-day basis can be made easily with a credit or debit card, meaning you don’t need to take up precious pocket real estate with a big wallet designed to hold lots of bills. Fashion standards have changed for men as well. Bulky pockets are unflattering and tend to give even the best outfit a rumpled and disheveled look. This means a sleek, minimalist wallet is the way to go.
Introducing the Parliament Wallet
If you’ve been settling for a less-than-great wallet and you’re tired of the inconvenience, it’s time for an upgrade. Luckily, your search for the best wallet out there ends here, with the Parliament wallet by Ekster. The Parliament truly reinvents the wallet, leaving the old bifold design behind in favor of a card-focused, compact design that looks great and is easy to use.
The Parliament wallet is made from genuine, high-quality leather and comes in seven great-looking colors. The Parliament’s sleek design lets it fit in small pockets easily, but don’t be fooled by its slim look – it still holds everything you need. With space for more than ten cards (which is far more than most men need to tote around), a strap that can be used to store cash, and room leftover for a smart tracker card, the Parliament is a tiny pocket powerhouse. That’s why we specialize in time-saving designs to carry better.
Why You Need a Tracker Card for Your Wallet
It’s a fast-paced world we live in, and the chance of something important going missing is higher than ever. Even if you tend to stay on top of where your essentials are, everyone is prone to lose their phone, wallet, or keys occasionally. To eliminate the hassle and headache of looking for your misplaced wallet and potentially ending up late for something important, try the Parliament wallet, as it can easily be equipped with a smart tracker card.
A tracker card makes your Parliament wallet unlosable by allowing you to ping your wallet’s location from your smartphone. If your wallet is missing nearby, you can use your phone to trigger the tracker card to ring, immediately ending your search and getting you back on task.
If your Parliament has been lost while you were out and about, you can use your smartphone to access the wallet’s location from afar, leading you back to it easily. When you invest in a great wallet, it’s worth equipping it with a tracker card to give you peace of mind knowing you can’t lose it.
When you make the Parliament your wallet, you’re setting yourself up to be safer from identity theft. Some credit and debit cards are equipped with RFID chips that allow you to make contactless payments. This adds extra speed and convenience to the transactions you make throughout the day. However, using RFID-equipped cards can make you more vulnerable to identity theft.
If you carry your RFID-equipped cards in an unprotected wallet, your card information is potentially at risk. Identity thieves called “skimmers” attempt to access information by scanning the RFID chips of passersby from a distance, meaning you could have your credit card info stolen without you noticing.
Fortunately, the Parliament wallet is equipped with RFID-blocking technology. The Parliament’s card slots are metal-lined, meaning they block skimmers from scanning your RFID chips. If you want to hold onto the convenience of contactless payments without the risks, the Parliament wallet, with its built-in RFID protection, is the way to go.
Downsizing your Daily Carry
If you’ve been using the same old-school bifold wallet for years, you’re probably carrying around stuff that you don’t need. When you make the switch to the Parliament, take the opportunity to fill your new wallet with only the essentials. The Parliament doesn’t store coins, and you likely won’t need to be toting around a handful of loose change, so it’s best to leave these at home or store them in your car for paying tolls. It can be a bit jarring to make the switch from a cluttered old wallet to a minimal new one, but it’s worth it.
Some unimportant items that might be taking up space in your current wallet to get rid of when switching to the Parliament include receipts, old business cards, coupons, loose change, and excess cash. You won’t be missing these things once they’re stored somewhere else, and chances are they only stayed in your wallet so long due to force of habit. The best way to lighten your load is to take only what you need most with you every day, and the Parliament wallet makes this easy.
Parliament vs. Modular vs. Secretary
If the Parliament doesn’t fit your lifestyle or aesthetic preferences, you’re not out of luck— Ekster has something for you, too. If you’re looking for an updated spin on the classic bifold wallet design, Ekster’s Modular Bifold wallet is the pick for you, with the same sleek, compact design sensibilities as the Parliament while reinventing a classic look. In addition, the Modular Bifold comes with a detachable magnetic cardholder, meaning you can downsize even more when you need to pack especially light. Plus, the Modular Bifold is equipped with RFID-blocking technology, keeping your contactless cards safe from identity theft.
If you’re looking for a wallet that’s as compact as it gets, the Senate Cardholder is for you. With plenty of room for cards, cash, and even a tracker card, the Senate gives you as much storage space as you’ll need for the essentials while taking up hardly any pocket space.
