Why a Carbon Fiber Wallet is Right For You

Minimalist wallets, slim wallets, RFID wallets, luxury leather wallets… each claim to be the best wallet for men, but carbon fiber wallets might actually put the rest to shame.

Now, we may be a little biased, but after testing out our brand new carbon fiber RFID wallet, we truly believe this is the best wallet out there. But don’t take our word for it, check out all the benefits of 3K carbon fiber that makes it the best material for men’s wallets. 

 

 

What is a carbon fiber wallet? 

Carbon fiber is a material made famous for its uses in military, aerospace, and automotive technologies. Designed in 1963 for jet engines, the potential of this amazing material was soon realized by engineers all over the world. 


Carbon fiber is just that, a fiber, something that can be woven together to make an incredibly strong fabric that feels more like a hard material than woven fibers. 


Our carbon fiber wallets are made from 3K carbon fiber, one of the strongest tensile fibers ever created, making this wallet just as tough as the sort of people who buy it. 


If this isn’t enough to pique your interest, read below to find out all the specific benefits of a carbon fiber wallet. 

 

 

BENEFITS OF CARBON FIBER WALLETS


1. Insanely strong

The most well-known, and perhaps the most impressive, characteristic of carbon fiber is its strength. 3K carbon fiber has the highest tensile strength of any commercially available material, making these slim metal wallets amazingly tough. 


To put that in numbers, carbon fiber can be up to 18 times stronger than steel and 5 times lighter than steel. 


2. Impossibly lightweight

Besides being incredibly strong carbon fiber is also impossibly lightweight. Before its creation, there was no naturally occurring material with the same strength-to-weight ratio. This is one of the reasons why carbon fiber has been revolutionary for aviation and aerospace technology. Nobody wants a heavy wallet, and our carbon fiber wallets are the thinnest on the market. 


3. Distinctive and sleek design

Many materials are functional but not so beautiful. Carbon fiber is not one of them. Luckily for everyone, carbon fiber weaves create a unique and distinctive design that is immediately recognizable. A carbon fiber wallet helps you stand out from the crowd. 


4. Tough as nails

Carbon fiber is not only strong, but it’s also heat resistant, UV resistant, doesn’t expand in cold temperatures, is invisible to x-rays and other radiation, corrosion-resistant, and is exceptionally durable compared to metal. All these properties mean carbon fiber won’t wear down quickly even under constant use, meaning your wallet will look perfect for years to come. 


5. Super Secure

At the end of the day, how strong a wallet is doesn’t matter if it’s not protecting what on the inside - your cards. Luckily, carbon fiber wallets are RFID protected meaning your cards are safe from skimmers looking to steal sensitive information.

 



 

Pair a carbon fiber wallet with one of our wallet trackers and you can add “unlosable” to the long list of other benefits. 


Head over to Ekster to get yourself the strongest and most durable wallet you’ll ever see. Our 3K Carbon Fiber RFID wallets also come with a pop-up function, making your cards easier to access than ever before.
