About this project
DudeIWantThat: "Thin, fast, and smart in the way we humans like to ascribe intelligence to inanimate objects..."
TechCrunch: "The killer feature is a small square hole in the side that enables you to partially pop out a credit card for a quick swipe."
GearCulture: "The stylish, slimline design puts an end to embarrassing trouser pocket bulging and also enables access to your most used cards without the need to ever take them out. Get swiping."
MovementsandNonsense: "Not only is this wallet thinner, but it’s design allows for one to quickly slide out credit cards for a smooth purchase transaction."
OhGizmo: "Any improvement over the scoliosis-inducing mammoths we carry today is welcome, and the DASH wallet pictured above is one of our favorites."
GearMoose: "...we no longer have room for our oversized, uncomfortable wallets anymore. That’s why we’re personally opting for the Dash Wallet."
Due to popular request and based on your suggestions, we are proudly presenting DASH 2.0! Completely redesigned with a more durable elastic and leather for a vertical design accommodating RFID chip cards.
Traditional wallets are uncomfortable to have in your back pocket and too bulky for front pockets or jacket pockets. Fumbling cards or mashing cash into your wallet at the register is never a good look. Dash requires less effort from you than any other wallet.
Feel free to finally leave out receipts, coins, movie stubs, and old gift certificates you'll never use. Carry the things you need, and access them easily.
We will also be producing a horizontal version for U.S. backers.
Dash 2.0 is much faster than the average wallet. It only weighs .23 oz.
Dash's minimal design makes it convenient to take anywhere, from the gym to coffee runs.
Dash 2.0 features 3 compartments. 2 for cards; a quickdraw slot, and a second compartment for carrying the rest of your cards and IDs.
If card isn't accepted, both Dash 2.0 models also carry cash in the third compartment on the bottom.
DASH 2.0 features a new, more durable elastic made from recycled fibers. It stretches in any direction unlike most wallets made with elastic band, which stretches in only one direction. It is complimented with a leather front side for a durable QuickDraw slot.
Swipe, without ever taking your card out.

Last year, I designed DASH Wallets after my new pup destroyed my old, traditional wallet. The project was fortunately funded and we started production. Afterwards, we received a lot of feedback and advice from you guys, on a better wallet design. Taking every single backer's feedback into consideration, I was inspired to create DASH 2.0.
That's the great thing about Kickstarter. Backers and creators can collaborate to create better products together. So thank you, Kickstarters.
After launching the first Dash project, I was able to learn a lot more about the many aspects of crowdfunding. We've been working to improve every step along the way from production costs to shipment methods. This time around, backer rewards can be offered for an even more affordable pledge and the process of fulfillment will be much more streamlined.
Dash 2.0 Wallets are made of a newer, more durable elastic fabric. It stretches in all directions as opposed to other wallets with elastic band, which moves in only one direction.
It was created with such elasticity so that you can hold however much you need. The 2.0 features black or (stretch goal) brown leather to compliment the black fabric for an upscale version of the original Dash. Using leather, the cutout for the quickdraw slot is more resilient to fraying and wear.
After launching the original DASH, we are ready to create this second line with more durable materials at a lower cost. We've spent months improving and developing this wallet based on your input, so we think you'll really like it.
This is where Kickstarter comes in again. We need your support to launch this line of wallets. We are raising funding for manufacturing, packaging, and logistics for DASH 2.0. Your support for the production of these wallets will help to make everyday life a little less complicated. Thank you for taking the time to check out the project.
Sharing it with loved ones takes only a second, and it would mean the world to us. Join Team Dash!

Risks and challenges
If Dash 2.0 gets funded, we will have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadlines. Projects often have trouble completing production and meeting the expected deadline for shipment. The project could face possible challenges if the quality of the product or packaging does not meet our requirements.
However, I will personally be in charge of assembling and shipping all of the pledge rewards as soon as we reach our goal. We have been working on the original Dash project and are ready as well as experienced in reward fulfillment.
We have adjusted the sizing on the Dash 2.0 by 2mm in order to allow for multiple cards to be in the wallet.
There will be a survey at the end of the project to get this information. The horizontal provides easier access to the cards while the vertical provides ample security of your cards with a smaller opening.
