About this project
When we set out to make the Dash Travel Wallet, we noticed that there weren’t many travel wallets on the market. The travel wallets that we did find were either too bulky, or too expensive, and most people, including me, were just carrying their passport unprotected.
Ask any seasoned traveler what their biggest fear when traveling is, and they’ll all tell you the same thing - losing a passport.
Carrying a passport by itself is ill-advised. It could easily be misplaced when fumbling for your boarding pass, ID, credit card, or money. Our RFID protection will prevent identity theft while in busy airports.
Employees at SFO state that this happens all the time, almost everyday.
We wanted to make a wallet perfect for travel, in the most minimal and simplest form.
A wallet that could hold, not only cash and cards, but your passport, and boarding pass as well. And allow easy access to all of it.
Starting at just $18, the Dash Travel Wallet is not only the most minimal option, but the most economical on the internet.
Designed for you, the international traveler, who knows no boundaries, and is always on the go.
The Dash Travel Wallet is a modern spin on a timeless essential. Do you really want to carry your travel necessities in one of your grandma's old fanny packs?
Of course not.
Next thing you know, you’ll be wearing sandals with socks too.
Whether you’re flying into New York City for a business meeting, or flying to Bali in search of yourself, the Dash Travel Wallet is perfect for you. Stylish enough for any gentleman, or gentlewoman, traveling for business, but rugged enough to tackle any adventure you throw at it.
Don’t waste time stumbling through security. With the Dash Travel Wallet, everything you need to get past the security line is in the palm of your hand. Passport, boarding pass, and everything in between, all in one simple, and quick, travel wallet.
No need to open any zippers, or dig through any bags, just one swift motion, and you’re through.
Exceptionally slim, Dash Travel Wallet is the perfect size for any destination. With pockets designed to hold your passport, ID’s, credit cards, and boarding pass, this is the last travel wallet you will ever need.
The ultra-thin profile will allow comfortable wear with suits or jeans - casual or formal attire.
Unsatisfied with other bulky travel wallets, we set out to make the most minimal, functional travel wallet there is. It is constructed from one-piece of canvas that is folded, sewn, and cut strategically to minimize the size.
The Dash Travel Wallet comes with two side slots to carry cards, one slide slot to carry a boarding pass, and one main slot to carry your passport.
No extra fluff, no unnecessary features, lower the risk of losing any essential items - passport, credit card, ID - when traveling abroad.
WHY THE DASH TRAVEL WALLET?
Simply put, it’s the best travel wallet available. Too often we see travelers losing their passport, or their ID, or their credit card, completely ruining an otherwise perfect vacation. No one should have to worry about these things when traveling.
With the Dash Travel Wallet you can fully enjoy the wonderful experience traveling brings, with the peace of mind that your most important documents are safe and secure.
Minimal, stylish, sleek, and functional, we are confident this little wallet will be your most revered travel companion for years to come.
We asked our manufacturing partners what materials would have the durability to endure our journeys, but also feel so good that we would want to bring them everywhere. They suggested a premium, eco-synthetic leather - the same used in many luxury vehicles, complying with universal stewardship standards across the board.
We are certain you’ll love the feeling of the super soft, supple canvas on your hand, in your pocket, around the globe. On top of quality, our leather also offers weather resistant protection, ensuring your valuables stay dry wherever the winds may take you.
The minimal simplicity allows for durability by design. In addition, the hand sewn threading and wax oiled edges protect the wallet from fraying from wear and tear.
We won't bore you with all the details/benefits of why RFID protection is important, but just know the Dash Travel Wallet will protect both your cards and passport from any identity or credit card theft.
We’ve been producing wallets for three years now, and have made strong relationships with reputable manufacturers that will bring to you the highest quality materials available.
We will be offering two styles of the Dash Travel Wallet, a pebble leather finish, and a classic leather finish. Choose whichever style suits you best, (or both) and set out to see the world.
We were inspired by the Dash 3.0, when designing the Dash Travel Wallet. We thought the minimalism that the 3.0 brought would be the perfect base for a travel wallet.
We took the best that the 3.0 had to offer, and added the necessary features for full fledged travel wallet.
It turned out to be a match made in heaven.
A little about us - Dash Wallets started over three years ago, thanks to a little pup named Dash, and a little-known website called Kickstarter. He loved to chew through anything leather, so you could just imagine what he did when he got ahold of my old leather wallet.
Thanks to Dash, I set out to create a new, minimal wallet, and the Dash Travel Wallet is product of all our previous wallets.
We are a little company based in San Francisco with the goal of bringing you the best slim, thin, & minimalist wallets. We do so with the integrity and philosophy of always doing our best to deliver quickly, with the best customer service. An unsatisfied customer is never left behind, and we always offer refunds, regardless of the reason.
We have a small team, but we give you big thanks for giving us the opportunity to create products for you.
We believe in our wallets, and you should too. If anything were to happen to your wallet within the first 2 years, we hope that you will send it back to us for repair or replacement. Under normal conditions and use, the wallet should last you a lifetime.
The Dash Travel Wallet offers very few weak points, providing durable coverage in its sleek design. Just don't pack the thing with excessive cards or cash- it defeats the purpose of a minimal travel wallet.

After numerous assessments on fabrics and designs, we have finished prototyping the wallet using only one piece of leather canvas to ensure a minimal frame and durability.
We can now start production of the wallets for the public. If successful, the production/fulfillment will be planned according to this timeline. We will aim for earlier shipments so that these wallets make for great Christmas gifts.
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 the Dash Travel Wallet.
Your support for the production of these wallets will help to make wallets slimmer all around you.
Thank you for taking the time to check out the project.
Risks and challenges
If the Dash Travel Wallet 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 deadlines 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.
If the volume overwhelms us, we will get assistance from a professional post-production company. Our team is experienced and has been preparing for nearly a year to ensure that post-funding will be like clockwork when the time comes.
Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always indirect or unseen tasks that may present itself during the process of productions. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible and also ahead of schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As far as the shipping goes, the US postal rates for international shipping have unfortunately doubled in 2016. It's something thats out of our control, and it's something we are also disappointed in as it hurts our company as well. We did our best to offer the lowest price for the wallet, being the best deal on the internet in our opinion. Hopefully you'll still find it worthy of shipping to you. :)
