TRAYVAX is in its 3rd year of being refined to the product that it is now. I am 24 prototypes deep, and it's finally a product that can be manufactured inexpensively while maintaining excellent quality.

Some call it a Tactical or industrial wallet, some call it an outdoorsmans wallet, but I just call it a "wallet for life" because it's construction is made to well outlast the common wallet. The front plate is an anodized 6061 Aluminum, and the back is powder coated steel. It is incredibly light and slim, but rigid and ready for any abuse that you could put it through.

I have done my best to also include features like a carabeaner clip, bottle opener, cash and reciepts slot, and finger grooves for turning the wallet into a handle for carrying groceries. The entire wallet is also RFID resistant.

Please check out the product review video below!

This project is almost complete, but it needs funding in order to afford the moulds and high quantity of manufacturing to drive the cost down. I have bootstrapped my way this far, and am calling out to Kickstarter to help me push manufacturing over the edge. 

I have received quotes from a Wisconsin stamping facility for the stamped parts, so that part involves a few phone calls and production can start. The straps will be manufactured in Seattle by an outdoor company called Conterra Inc, and will be made at very high quality. I already have the remaining components which I have purchased and stored for use when the production begins.

This product means so much to me. I have worked hard to make it a wallet that can truly last a lifetime, and I hope you like it too!

Risks and challenges

Setbacks of this project would be maintaining the high quality of manufacturing that I have to achieve.

If these setbacks occur, the stamping facility will either have to make new moulds, or changing the company which stamps it.

I will make sure to keep on top of the quality by having pictures and samples sent to me often.
