- Slim wallets are great, it keeps only your essentials, and keep away the bulky feeling. However, when you are traveling, you indeed need to bring a lot more stuffs in bigger size, so many people end up with two wallets while traveling. One for the road, one for destination daily. That's why we made Minix Traveler.
- With Minix traveler, you can use it for everyday commute, and it comes handy when you are traveling internationally. Lay flat, passport wallet, fold it, slim everyday wallet. Amazing like that :)
- Although foldable slim wallet is not entirely new, Minix Traveler have many unique features.
This is not our first rodeo
On time reward deliver twice, and more than 1000 wallets delivered, from the last campaigns.
Although we still have much more work to do to meet our backers expectation, but we are trying. :)
We consider our original backers as our beta testers and promoters, that's why we are giving out amazing discount and start the buy one get one free program. If you are new backer, don't worry, you will have the same privilege next time. :)
Build for Minimalists, yet very functional
Design Minix Traveler with one ultimate goal, room for all your essentials, for both travel and daily use, and always stay slim.
- Top quality materials: Minix Traveler use top quality canvas for the main body, great quality artificial leather for pockets, and fashionable water resistant liner. We have more than 1000 backers to back us on the fact that our wallet's material is top notch.
- Material contrast: 3 kinds of different material forms a fashionable yet handsome look for the wallets.
- Super thin and slick: Minix Traveler is super thin, and always compact even when loaded up.
- We are proud of our unique V-notch design. It was one of the most important feature to original Minix wallet. Now we have introduced it into our new Minix Traveler.
- We made the back layer a bit higher than the front, so that you can tip on the back a little bit to separate open the passport sleeve. With this design, you will be inserting passport a lot easier.
- And there is back V-notch as well to help you grasp on the passport when taking it out. Not more digging and thrusting.
- Flat style for passport, more bills, air tickets and such, and fold style for smaller size and more comfortable daily use once landed.
- Flat style with passport
- In either style, you will have quick access to cards.
- You can insert bills in both carrying style as well.
- It is great to keep some coins on the road, and if you have separated keys or SIM cards, you can put them in the capped pocket. Quite secure.
The term RFID refers to Radio frequency Identification. Such technology is widely used in many credit cards, membership cards, etc. Basically, a RFID card shall yield its information to radio signal emited by a scanner. This is very convenient when we try to pay our bill, open a door, show our membership etc. But our card info can be leaked to dangerous people in the same way. Therefore, RFID protection is to shield cards from all radio signals by placing metal materials as cover, blocking the radio frequency out.
- Minix Traveler wallet has inbuilt RFID blocking material for protection against high-tech hecking.
Please note that the thickness of the wallet is NOT quite precise, the data is only for reference.
- We recommend the wallet to hold 8 to 12 cards, if you have more cards, you can put them in the middle sleeve as well.
Color options are grey and blue. :)
- Gathering order info: For two weeks, we shall wait for backers to answer their survey. Please note that backers are always change their address for our survey, however do shoot us an message when you about to do so. And do let us know ahead of time if you are moving. Kickstarter can be a long march :(
- Confirm order and buy materials: For this step we shall start calculating the material we need and start ordering them.
- Manufacturing: We shall work with our contractors and start production process. Tell from experience that timing could be on and off for this stage, you never know. But even if you are off the schedule, please understand that we are only trying to make sure that our products are of good quality.
- Packaging: Packaging can be quite challenging as well, since we have backers from all over the world. Have to be careful. :)
- Shipping: Please note that our estimated delivering date is the shipping date, not arriving date. Shipping time could be quite different depends on the locations of each backer.
Risks and challenges
1. On timing:
Since the exact number of backers is unknown to us, so the timing may fall out of schedule a little. But we did leave ourselves with extra time already, and we will try to get ahead of time for each step, so don't worry. :)
2. On shipping:
Shipping is another potential problem as well. Shipping period can vary from 3 weeks to 6 weeks or even longer depends on shipping location and local Custom policy. Should the shipping take way too long than regular time, we will assume the package is lost and resend the reward. Promises promises :)
3. On refund:
We will arrange refund, if it is strongly insisted. There is no point in keeping the money from backers if they don't have our back any more. We will do our best to meet backers' anticipation as we should, and hope the worst won't happen.
