Where's my wallet?
All in all, I spent less than an hour looking for my wallet this time but there were a few very real moments of panic in which I thought I’d just lost it while out before. You know the feeling I’m talking about: when you realize you haven’t seen your wallet in a while. When you pat your pocket and can’t feel it. When you go to pay at the counter and it’s not where you thought it would be. Nine times out of ten, it turns out I simply forgot where I put it; the tenth time, I’m already holding it in my hand while I look for it in my bag.
Why can't I call it?
I made my excuses to my friend when I arrived (forty minutes late), ruefully adding ‘I wish I could just ring my wallet sometimes, you know?’ She wasn’t impressed by my tardiness, but she had a suggestion for me. She mentioned a brand named Ekster that makes smart wallets which you can call. Before you ask ‘do I really need this, though? Does a wallet need to be smart?’ I have another question for you. How many times have you lost your wallet? If you’re one of those people who just always knows where everything is, congratulations and goodbye! You don’t need this. But if you’re like me, keep reading.
Keeping my religion, losing my wallet
How many times have I actually lost my wallet, you ask? Twice. Once I was five years old and I threw it into the sewer in a fit of rage. It only had a drawing of my dog and my dad’s business card in it, but I was still exceptionally upset once I realized what I had done. The second time was more recent, only three or four years ago. I lost it on a night out. If I were to guess, I think I dropped it while pulling my phone out of my pocket to call a cab. I couldn’t tell you for sure. But I do remember the horrible, stomach-dropping feeling the next morning, when I realized I didn’t have it.
Losing my wallet sucked because...
What’s even the worst thing about losing your wallet? There are so many, I don’t know where to start. For one, I’m always scared someone will use my cards to buy illegal stuff (Guns? Powdered tortoise shells? Kinder eggs?). I also always carry a few dollars with me, so I can say goodbye to that. Then there’s trying to replace all my access cards. When I lost my wallet, I also lost my gym card, my travel card, my bank cards (duh), my work access pass. It was a pain and a hassle to get all this stuff replaced, and it wasn’t cheap either. But you know what the worst part was?
I was the guy who lost his wallet
I was the person who had lost their wallet. I made fun of friends who managed to do this before me; I was always less than empathetic, because it had never happened to me. But I suddenly found myself telling friends, family, people from work, the pizza delivery guy: ‘I lost my wallet and I have no idea where it is.’ I didn’t want this in my life again. I wanted to be cool, calm, and collected: the sort of person who is ready for anything, and who doesn’t lose their wallet in the middle of it. If the Ekster wallet had been available four years ago, I would have dropped money on it in a heartbeat. But better late than never, and although I’m late to the smart wallet party, I’m definitely here to stay.
Now Life's Easier with an Ekster
In the week since I got my Ekster, I’m a lot more relaxed already. Sometimes I want to check if I have my wallet on me, so all I do is ring it. No more fumbling through my bag in panic; no more checking my accounts frantically to see if anyone bought any banned chocolates with my money; no more mad searching through my wallet for my cards, thanks to the quick access feature. I already feel cooler, which is super important of course, but the best thing about the wallet is how much easier it’s made my life. If there’s one object that does need to be smart - it’s most definitely your wallet.

As promised its amazing can store all i need for a night out or business and pleasure thank you
This wallet is so nice, the feel, the smell from this wallet damn this is premium. Had this wallet for bout 3 days now not used on how the form factor is but gotta get use to it and it’s a stealthy slim wallet. I recommend this to any one that wants a pretty neat leather minimalistic wallet . Ekster earns another 5 🌟
This is my first product from here and it’s amazing, I’m about to purchase another one, I’ve had many compliments on the wallet, it’s professional, and it goes with your everyday use
Got this wallet in the bronze color. Leather feels very high quality and the color’s my favorite so far. Had an old Ekster so it’s nice to add a limited edition to my collection too.
Best Wallet I ever purchased. Most convenient for the people who carry low amounts of cash and use credit cards for their daily purchases
All I expected. A slim wallet which is easy to carry in your pocket. No more fumbling at the shops to find the right card as the spring action allows easy access. Highly recommend.
Aesthetically feels good in my hand, not bulky or clumsy at all
Conveniently streamlined. Reminiscent of 007 gadgetry.
Touch of modern is spot on with this one.
I bought this a wallet with tracker card for a Christmas present for someone special. After using the wallet for a few weeks, I decided that I deserved the same spoilong myself. I like the protection from having my cards scanned, but also being able to locate my wallet with the tracker. What a very handy and useful item for today’s high tech protection needs. And it is so simple to get at the correct credit card when I need it.
About a month into it, I approve. Does the job and looks very sleek. Will get another if ever needed!!
This wallet is simply perfect for people who only use cards as payment method, if you usually use bills or money it is not a good solution for you
When I received my wallet, it was a bit different from expected. I expected more storage like my previous bifold. I got used to the wallet now and love it! Two credit cards, three normal cards, all I need in a day.
Love the leather quality but the left flap stayed open in the beginning. After keeping the wallet in my pocket for about a week, the flap stayed closed. I think that's how it works, the leather needs to adapt I guess.
This transformed my wallet experience. So efficient, sleek and stylish. Fan for life!
The slim designed coupled with how many times I’ve had a mini heart attack looking for it makes this wallet with the tracker worth it and every dollar I keep in it. Mechanics are the most solid I’ve seen with this type of style. Wish bills wouldn’t needed to be folded into 1/3s but cash strap makes up for that. Will be ordering multiples for family as gifts
I love, love the Parliament wallet! Slick and Stylish as well as fictional. I love the feel of the leather and the extra pockets not to mention the cool 007 card retractor. if I may make one suggestion, I am not a fan of the cash band. it works if you want to carry a few bills but anything more than a few. maybe if the band was vertical? other than that
I love the sleekness, the color and best of all the look I get in public from whomever is at the register when I pull it out and pop my debit card out. Those reactions are gold. I’m very satisfied with my purchase.
I absolutely love this wallet! A man will use a few wallets in his lifetime. For me, this is definitely the one. I love how light and compact its design is compared to other wallets I've ever used. I also love how I feel like a CEO or James Bond when I take a card out. I hate the annoying feeling of having a tough time removing your ID or cards from other wallet slits when you've had your wallet for quite some time; with this wallet, I definitely don't have that problem. It's sleek, convenient, and well-designed. Ekster gets a 5/5 from me!
This is truly the best you will ever buy! I’ve recommended this to so many people that I should get a cut of the profits.
I can feel my friends jealousy pierce my skin as I whip out this stunning eye candy of a wallet.. it just looks and feels so damn high-end and looks like something out of a james bond movies with that card button..
My friend has this wallet and since I saw it I knew I had to have it. Just arrived and it is exactly as I wanted it to be. So nice to not have to walk around with a huge wallet bulging out of my pants. I easily fit 5 cards into the main slot plus 2 more inside the leather plus change plus cash and still it remains the same slim size it was with nothing. Highly recommend this product and from this buyer. Ps get the blue
