      I purchased this for my husband and he has travelled abroad, taken it to his work, biked with it, etc. He has definitely used it a lot and it is wonderful. He loves it. At first it was hard to get the cards to get in and out, but once it wore down after a week, it became super easy to use. I love it because he no longer is sitting on his wallet, which is saving his back! Thanks for a great product. Totally recommend.

      Excellent customer service and great wallets! I own two different types one with coin carry attachment and one without. Easy to use and go through cards, other wallets I have used don't spread/sort cards as well as this one.

      @ Jack, we've sent you a PM. Thanks for your excellent feedback!

      @ Cole, thank you for your comment! Glad to know the Fantom Wallet has been the best wallet you've seen so far! We will definitely keep everyone in the loop for a second version :)

      I’ve been using my carbon fiber Fantom Wallet for quite a while now, and I have to say it is everything I hoped for. It’s not perfect. The fanning sometimes doesn’t separate the edges of the cards enough, forcing me to fumble a little to pull the right one out. But ultimately, what I gain in thinness and quick access the top and bottom cards outweighs any slight flaws, and the flaws really are slight. The only things really to improve are the consistency and spread of the card fanning, and perhaps a metal lever system instead of plastic. The plastic is fine, and it’s holding up well, but it is the one weak point structurally that could break after awhile.

      Constructive criticism aside, this is by far the best wallet I’ve ever even seen, and in use it’s as great as I could have hoped. You all did a fantastic job, and I’m excited to see what you come up with next!

      Hey Ansix! I've been loving my Fantom Wallet since I got it! It's been great so far!! The only thing that I've run into so far is that I pretty drastically reduced the number of cards that I consistently carry around. I really only carry about 4 cards now, but I have the largest size. I was wondering if there is any kind of discount code for your loyal backers that I might be able to use so I could purchase another a smaller version of the wallet? I would really appreciate anything you could help me out with. The wallet is just so huge compared to what I carry.

      Thanks guys! Keep up the super awesome work!!!

      Hello Ansix, I have been enjoying my Fantom Wallet for nearly five months now. I would like to remove the white lining because my coins get stuck inside especially the 1€ and 2€ coins, I don’t mind the extra noise it will make. Could you send me instructions, thanks!

      Long story short, I am using the regular carbon Fantom 7 with gold clip for about 7 months now.
      I am absolutely love it, compact, looks cool, lightweight, etc.
      Of course as the first version of an awesome project it is not perfect, but it is so close to it, thus I forget the few downsizes in no time.
      Hey Ansix, if you make a second version and it is worth to upgrade, definitely count me in.
      Ps: My gold clip holds up as well so far. Using it within my jeans pocket 24/7...

      Hi Ansix, I’m using this product for months and I like it so much. But I want to remove the white fabric too. Could you send me how to remove it?
      I’m so glad to hear you have plans for next Fantom Wallet. I can’t wait for improved one.

      I'm using this wallet few month now and I love it. cool design, very small. It does Everything I have expected or hoped it does. The price is okay for this material.
      @Ansix Could you send me the details about remove the white thing too?
      The 2€ coin could be a little bit too thick for this wallet (0,1 or 0,2 mm), it is off a little bit on the inlet side.
      If you plan to make a improved version: Would you expand the coin place (for 2 € coins)? That's the only thing I want to have improved.

      @Ansix Is there a way to remove the white stuff inside the coin compartment? The white thing is breaking apart and is blocking the way inside the coin compartment.

      Question - what is the specification of the screw used in the wallet? One of the screws in my front plate popped off and I can't find it (the inner silver threading is visible). I thought I'd just order a pack from eBay, and I don't want to gamble.

      Other than that, 3 months and going strong! Really satisfied with my purchase.

    27. Ansix Engineering 3-time creator on

      @Geoff There is no way to force the machine to charge one card versus another. Our recommendation is to take the card out of the wallet. The second best option is to put the Compass card at the bottom with all other RFID cards closer to the top with non RFID cards spaced between.

      @George Thanks for the feedback about the wear. We're looking into different materials with less friction to cause less wear on the cards.

      Vancouverites/creator- with Vancouver transit readers now accepting debit and credit cards, we are advised by translink to always take the compass card out of the wallet. If it is the closest card to the reader, do we need to worry about the other cards being scanned? Given that this wallet was developed in Vancovuer, I figured someone might know.

      I'm still using it. However, two of my cards borders have been damaged. I've replaced my checking card once already. The edges of the cards seem to get worn going in and out of the wallet. The money clip was not very tight either so I had to bend it slightly. Working well now.

    30. Ansix Engineering 3-time creator on

      @ David. Thank you!! Glad to hear :)

      @ Daniel, glad to know you finally got your package! We understand how frustrating it is when packages get stuck at Customs. We are happy to hear that you like the wallet very much! As for the money clips, we will follow up with you on that. And Fantom Wallet V2? Why not? ;)

    31. Daniel Hu on

      Finally my Trio arrived after 4 month delay and problem with customs <3
      The Wallet is very good processed but the money clip not.
      All 3 are very durty and scratched. For 25$ i expected better quality or quality control .

      I hope we will see a Fantom Wallet V2.0 or maybe a discount for the next generation ;)

      Overall i m very happy with the wallet, only the money clip must be controlled before get shiped out. Or maybe i m the only one who get 3 bad pieces :/

      Thank you everyone for your feedback! Much appreciated and we know where to improve for future products, especially for the coin holder. Thank you!

      @ Nick, please feel free to send us a message regarding your suggestion :)

      @ Brenda, glad to know you love the wallet! Yea, we definitely recommend wearing the Fantom Wallet in the front pocket! For bending the clip, did you try bending it against a hard surface like a table top? For that last bit of extra tension, you may need to exert a little bit more force to get that.

      I bought a wallet for both my husband and I. He didn’t like it, as it was too stuff to carry in his back pocket, & he refuses to wear it in his front pocket. I LOVE mine. The only issue with mine is that the (purple) money clip won’t hold only one or two bills. It was so loose that I had to bend it. I couldn’t get it to be as tight as his blue clip, so I have quite a bit of stuff under mine so my money doesn’t fall out. Hahaha

      Michael T. on

      @Carl Lum thanks for the suggestion! It does help in the short term, but after 2 hours it's back to usual. I personally don't care too much about shaking my wallet a bit before trying to extract the coins, I just brought it up so if there'll be a 2.0 version of the Fantom they'll know what to improve.

    36. Carl Lum on

      @Michael T: There was plenty of space in the coin compartment when the wallet was first designed. But they've now added a fabric layer to deaden the sound of the coins. It's this extra layer that's making things tight. Maybe trying jamming a popsicle stick in there to "flatten" out the fabric a bit to get more space.

    37. Nick Crutchfield on

      In love with this wallet. Only question I have is if you’re going to release the sale of sides so that you can swap out for having or not having the coin side? It’d be great to have the option to buy another piece and swap out as needed.

    38. Missing avatar

      Michael T. on

      I have a slight suggestion for improvement: in the coin version, it's easy enough to insert the coins - but they tend to get stuck inside their compartment and require shaking to loosen them up. Making the compartment ever-so-slightly wider should solve that without any major downsides.

    39. Carl Lum on

      I've had my Fantom wallet for several months now, and it's great. However, I'm still finding it difficult to fan out the cards evenly. Usually it takes me a couple of tries and I find that you must "flick" the lever just the right way. Removing a card from the middle of the pile is a chore. And try as I may, I simply cannot hold and flick the wallet in one hand! The person in your demo video must have really big hands.

    40. Ansix Engineering 3-time creator on

      @ Scott, glad to know you love the Fantom Wallet :)

      @ John, sorry to hear that. Typically, the aluminum plates would hold up pretty well in regular usage and that it's stored in a pocket that is not with other items. If you put keys in the same pocket as your wallet, then the wallet would be more prone to scratches.

      Hey everyone,

      I would’ve loved to leave a positive comment, but unfortunately I had a bad experience. I ordered the Fantom Wallet with money clip and only received the fantom wallet. When I tried contacting them it was as if they didn’t believe me and asked me to produce my receipt to show them I did. I don’t know why they didn’t have it on file, but I did and I still after months later have not heard anything back from them. I had an issue to someone’s earlier as well where the screw fell out. However, I couldn’t find mine so I had to find one to fit. Unfortunately, no one has helped with this company and I am very unhappy, but they don’t seem to care :(

      Hi all,
      I received my Fantom Wallet with money clip and I love it.
      But one thing that I want to share is that one of the screw was come out and almost lost if I were drop it off. Fortunately that I found it in my pocket and screwed it again with glue.
      Watch out not to lost your screws.

      Hey everyone,

      Got my fantom about a week or so ago and I absolutely love it. There is indeed a bit of a break in period for the wallet, but it’s all going very smoothly. The money clip holds bills in quite well and doesn’t seem to have a lot of give, which is phenomenal.
