Introducing the Flyfold Wallet

Your footwear, apparel, bags and watches have all been modernized with technical materials. The Pioneer Flyfold is the missing link that completes your wardrobe with the most technically advanced premium wallet— engineered for demanding & active lifestyles and built to last a lifetime.

Conventional wallets fall apart. The Flyfold will last a lifetime.

Features

                               

Field-tested to the limits:

Athletes have put our technology to the test and their feedback has perfected our wallets.

We have shipped thousands of wallets across the world so you can feel very confident you will be backing something real, tested, worth-while.

Featured in:

  • “It made my leather wallet feel like the stone age. I was sort of ashamed of myself lol” -Ved, cinematographer, London ENG 
  •  “I have an early prototype from years ago and it still looks new!” -Todd, Industrial Designer, Seattle, WA 
  •  “The Flyfold was surprisingly easy to organize all my cards with the 2 large card slots” Mark, entrepreneur, Chicago IL 
  •  “The fabric feels like nothing I’ve ever felt. It’s smooth, firm, and feels obviously premium” -Bobby, cyclist, Scottsdale, AZ
                               

1. 10X Stronger Than Steel

Our 10XD™ super fabric is ultra-high-molecular-weight-polyethylene (ten times stronger than steel per weight) blended into a fine nylon ripstop. The dense and tactile finish repels dirt and water, keeping your wallet in like-new condition for years.

2. Sweatproof, waterproof, & machine washable

Soggy leather wallets weigh you down and fall apart. If you ride to work in the summer you know the feeling. Forgetting your wallet was in your pants when you washed them now only cleans your wallet.

                               

3. Reinforced stitching & eliminated seams

Heat-welded construction removes seams that are the first to burst. High stress areas feature bar-tacks that are stronger than rivets. The same bar-tacks used in climbing gear.

4. Breaks in with time, but never breaks down

Our Future form™ technology is the pliable core inside the Flyfold giving it form and a leather-like hand feel. Engineered to break in and mold to your cards with use and time, but never break down as leather does.

5. Minimalist style, maximum features

The Flyfold’s minimal design is still fully featured. 10 cards and full length bills is exactly what the modern wallet should hold. Large card slots are more secure and allow you to fan out cards for easy access.

 Closed measurements: about 83mmx105mm

Progress over tradition. Textile over leather.

We looked to the future to define the next generation of wallets. Leather cannot achieve the precision, control or durability we are able to achieve with our high-density weave and advanced manufacturing. We look to principles of function and refinement and celebrate better ways of making things.

Manufacturing confidence

We have been delivering world-class Pioneer product for the last year and a half and and our relationship with our manufacturing team is closer than our relationship with our own families (at times). Our overseas team in Saigon manufactures for the likes of Lululemon, Rapha, and The North Face. 

We have proven our technology with hundreds of prototypes and have produced thousands of wallets using our technology. We know you will receive a precision product and each and every wallet is personally inspected by us before being shipped. Summary: You are backing a real thing that really exists and will be delivered to you perfectly.

About Pioneer 

We are industry veterans, having designed for brands like Nike, Black Diamond Equipment, Brooks England, and Levi’s Commuter. We have taken our knowledge of technical fabrics and applied it to a new generation of wallets. With your support we hope to bring our designs to a larger audience and help fund further development into defining the future of carry.

Designers not businessmen. 

We are designers and athletes. We left the cubicle to launch Pioneer and create beautiful wallets that change old perceptions of what a wallet should be. We are passionate boot-strappers who focus entirely on product. Kickstarter will allow us to raise funds to keep our heads down and develop more stuff and get more feedback from users to push the envelope even further. 

See you out there with a Pioneer Flyfold Wallet! Thanks for your support!

                             

This campaign is promoted by Backercamp. Since 2012, Backercamp has helped 5,000+ creators make their projects a reality, raising over $150MM through crowdfunding.

Risks and challenges

This isn't our first wallet.

We’ve successfully manufactured thousands of our wallets and delivered them around the world. Our supply chain and process has been built to handle large orders without sacrificing quality.

Manufacturing delays: While this is a possibility, our manufacturer has always delivered items on time or has been transparent about expectations. If there is a chance of a delay, we will communicate this right away.

International delivery delay: International deliveries are subject to possible customs inspections, which can cause delays. These inspections are beyond our control and can last several business days so please be aware of this possibility. Once the item passes the inspection, it will be delivered shortly.
