About this project
With the patent-pending Fantom Wallet, you can carry cards, cash, and coins. When you have the right things on hand, it becomes easier to adapt between work and life's adventures. Fan out the cards with a flick of a finger, all your cards are instantly available. Everything you need is always ready at your disposal. With three different sizes, we have the perfect Fantom Wallet for you.
Instant Access. The ergonomic thumb lever is designed for one-handed operation. One flick of your thumb and your cards are fanned, ready for you to select the card of your choice. The quick draw slot allows for instant access to the top card.
RFID/NFC Blocking. With the cards retracted, the Fantom Wallet will dampen the signals, reducing the risk of being activated, selected and copied. Once the lever is pulled, the card will be exposed and ready to use at the transit turnstile or making a tap payment all without removing the card from the wallet. Not applicable to the carbon fiber version.
One-handed Operation. With the Fantom Wallet's integrated quick card slot, you can easily withdraw your top card with one swift motion.
Razor Thin. The Fantom 7 Wallet is only 0.3” (8mm), just 0.08” (2mm) thicker than the cards it’s holding. Simply put, this is the thinnest wallet ever made.
Featherweight. The Carbon Fiber Fantom 7 Wallet weighs exactly 1 ounce. Using the same materials as aircrafts and race cars, we managed to make the Fantom Wallet the same weight as a single slice of bread.
Coin Holder. The Fantom Wallet with the coin compartment holds coins up to 0.12" (3mm) in thickness. The coins are secured in using the thumb lever as a door. In addition to coins, the holder can be used to store spare keys, SD cards, and USB drives.
Leave Nothing Behind. Find the right configuration that suits your needs. Hold cards, cash, coins and more.
Customize Your Fantom. The Fantom Wallet is available in four different anodized aluminum colors and carbon fiber. Three sizes are available to suit your needs. The Fantom Wallet can be optioned with a coin compartment to store coins, SD cards, SIM cards and Keys. Add a titanium money clip to hold your cash.
Secure. Easy access doesn't mean unsecured. The Fantom Wallet is carefully engineered so that the cards will not fall out even when the cards are fanned out or if the wallet isn't full. The cards come out only when you need them.
*Card capacity is listed as a range due to the variance in thickness from cards with raised lettering. A Fantom 7 will hold 7 flat cards or 4 embossed cards.
*Please note, the coin version is 4mm thicker than the normal Fantom. They can not be converted back and forth to be with and without the coin holder.
The Fantom Wallet is designed and engineered in Canada. The aircraft aluminum plates are CNC machined with immense precision then brushed and anodized for a durable finish. The carbon fiber wallets are made with the same high grade carbon fiber used in aircraft and race car construction to create a wallet lighter than any other. The money clip is stamped out of grade 5 titanium to ensure repeated cycles of clipping while maintaining our lighter is better philosophy. By combining these distinctly manufactured materials together, we are able to create a wallet that is both strong and light while being easy to use and ergonomic.
*Money clip not included. See Add-On's Section and our Updates to learn how to get one.
The early bird rewards are limited by time. Backers only have access to the early bird rewards in the first week of our campaign. After that, there will be additional tiers which may be limited in quantity. This is to ensure we can meet our delivery deadlines. If those limits are reached, we will create new reward tiers but their delivery date will be later. If you want a Fantom Wallet, we suggest you to not wait. If you're planning someone's Christmas present, make sure you're either a early bird backer or in the first batch.
You may add more wallets, the same or different sizes, of the same reward tier at the same price. Aluminum Fantom Wallet Early Bird backers may add a Carbon Fiber Fantom Wallet at the early bird price. Carbon Fiber Fantom Wallet Early Bird backers may add an Aluminum Fantom Wallet at the early bird price.
The strong and light Grade 5 Titanium money clip allows you to store your bills securely. The money clip will include a pair of screws and a hex key to install onto your Fantom Wallet. It can be installed on either front or the back side of the wallet. The clip comes sandblasted in its natural color or it can have an anodized finish in Purple, Blue or Gold.

Our troopers are awaiting news of a successful campaign and are eagerly waiting to start production. All the tooling is finished and the suppliers lined up with finalized drawings.
Ansix Designs was established in 2014 when a group of Canadian mechanical engineers came together to design high quality products that are both affordable and useful. We are constantly looking for innovative ways to improve existing products and to create new invention. We believe there are always better, simpler ways to do things.
We believe in crowdfunding. Thanks to two successful Kickstarter campaigns, we have been able to introduce LensRacks camera gear storage system and LensPacks quick change camera lens caps to photographers around the world. Our backers are very important to our business. Without them, Ansix Designs would not have been able to bring these products to the market.

Risks and challenges
When you become a backer of our project, you will essentially be pre-ordering the Fantom Wallet with a Kickstarter discount. All the tooling is finished and the supply chain has been defined - all we need to do is start production. As a backer of the Fantom Wallet on Kickstarter, you’ll have discounted pricing and be the absolute first to try our wonderful wallet!
From our past two successful Kickstarter campaigns, LensRacks and LensPacks, we were able to deliver all pledges despite a few production delays. For those projects, while we had fully functional prototypes, we did not have the tooling/molds ready to go. We ended up making several mold changes before the final production items were up to our standard.
Learning from our previous experiences, we decided to make a huge change for the Fantom Wallet - we will have all the tooling/molds ready to go before the launch of the Kickstarter campaign! This means there is virtually no risk of any delay related to mold changes as with our previous campaigns. Once the campaign ends, we will order the appropriate quantities and production will begin. Our past experience with fulfillment has allowed us to streamline the process so that we can quickly get the Fantom Wallets delivered into your hands.
Our goal is to deliver a product that is of high quality, in a timely manner. We also believe that accountability and commitment go both ways. In particular, refunding pledges puts a project at risk. As such, we cannot offer refunds unless the item is defective - your pledge is an important part to get everyone else a finished product on-time.
