About this project
That's us! Two guys on a mission to change the game of wallets for good! Steel Wally is the strongest, simplest, RFID blocking wallet ever. Now we need your help to bring it to the world! Look at what others are saying:
Slim Wallet Junkie: "...as you might imagine, at Slim Wallet Junkie, we get contacted by quite a lot of different people informing us of their new wallet design. Many of these are good - a few aren't so good. Rarely though, have we seen one quite so deserving of the label 'good'..."
A Geeky World: "...durability is a prime feature of the Steel Wally. Fashioned from stainless steel, coupled with a military-grade band guaranteed for life, the Steel Wally will last you a life time. You can run it over with a car, dust it off and put it back in your pocket, unscathed. Its unconventional material also saves your hard earned money; the stainless steel shell shields against unauthorized RFID scan of your credit cards."
Sheriff Deputy James Coleman: "I tested it at the Sheriff's Office. When my key card was in my Steel Wally I could not open any doors (that use RFID signals). Unlike my old leather wallet, it works! I feel more secure knowing that."

STEEL WALLY- A Wallet for Good.
We set out to make the most minimal, most simple, most attractive wallet the world has ever seen. One that was good for your back, good for landfills (because it would never need to be in one!) and good at protecting your identity. It had to be highly functional and do exactly what a wallet needs to do; no more, no less. We designed, revised, tested and whittled away at everything that wasn't necessary. For us, minimal meant more than simply being small or thin. We wanted no moving parts, no screws, no hinges, nothing but raw, functional beauty that was ultra simple to use. We succeeded.
Big wallets. Big problems.
Next it needed to be something that was designed to be carried in your FRONT pocket. Millions of men are still carrying around large, bulky wallets in their back pocket that, when sat on, twists their pelvis, creates a very troubling misalignment that causes many of those millions of men serious back pain and issues. As a CrossFit trainer/personal trainer I have conversations nearly every week with men who are still sitting on those big wallets and are suffering as a result. Steel Wally is only millimeters larger than your credit cards and is a brilliant solution for this!
Then came security...
Could a wallet this simple and this attractive also help to protect against RFID scans from unscrupulous people looking to steal your credit card information? We researched, worked at it and decided that the best material to accomplish our goals of both simplicity and some serious RFID limiting abilities was stainless steel. Steel Wally does all this while being incredibly light, incredibly thin, smooth to the touch and nice to look at.
Last but not least, the style factor. The response to Steel Wally has been incredible. Every single beta-tester has absolutely fallen in love with it. Despite what you might think, we have just as many women who want a Steel Wally as we do men! This is when we knew we had done something truly transcendent.
Made in Oregon, USA with LOVE!
We have designed and manufactured the entire Steel Wally in beautiful Oregon!
Risks and challenges
Kickstarter and where you come in:
We have our final design finished and our manufacturers and suppliers lined up and ready to go. We have already covered the initial tooling and material costs. However, we need your help in meeting the minimum order quantities (MOQ’s) required by the manufacturers to go into production. Your pledge will help us get the first run of Steel Wally Wallets made!
We need at least 200 orders to get our project off the ground, which translates into $5,400 – our funding goal. Please know that Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing system; meaning if we are unable to meet our funding goal, no money will be collected.
So please back our project. If you are unable to back our project, please help us in getting the word out to your friends and network – we’ll give you mad love and you’ll have the satisfaction in knowing that you played a vital role in bringing Steel Wally to the world!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
