About this project
This campaign has ended, but you can visit our website (www.capsulewallets.com) to connect with us and find out more about our products.
And after you take a quick look below, click here for an in-depth review of the Accomplice.
Introducing the Accomplice™ and the Diplomat™
Four years after our successful Kickstarter campaign for the Minimalist™, we're excited to share the next two products in our Capsule family, the Accomplice and the Diplomat.
Time and time again, we found our customers carrying more than the recommended number of cards in their Minimalists, or stuffing their pockets with loose receipts and stacks of business cards.
Our design challenge was to create a sophisticated wallet solution for people that simply need to carry more, but still want to keep a low-profile.
To address these occasions, we created the Accomplice and the Diplomat.
Want to carry more? Zip it up!
Zipper wallets have been around for a long time. They’re coveted for their ability to securely ‘lock in’ any and everything you want to carry in your wallet. But to our frustration, we couldn’t find any zip wallets that looked good AND worked well. Trust us. We looked.
Today, most of the options on the market are big and bulky, while others have a zip opening barely large enough to fit anything in, making them functionally unwieldy.
We’re proud to bring you the thinnest zip wallets ever made.
The Accomplice is a versatile cash, card, and sundry carrier crafted from premium full-grain Italian leathers, stitched with high-tenacity Serafil, lined in high-glide nylon, and secured with a bevelled YKK zipper. Engineered with the innovative interior access Cash$trap for discreet access to paper currency, secure card-hold, and optimized flexutility based on simple user-preference.
The Diplomat is a versatile passport, ticket, visa, cash, card, and sundry carrier crafted from premium full-grain Italian leather, stitched with high-tenacity Serafil, lined in high-glide nylon, and secured with a bevelled YKK zipper. Engineered with the innovative interior access Cash$trap for discreet access to paper currency, secure angled-entry card-holds, and optimized flexutility based on simple user-preference.

Risks and challenges
Four years of operating have given us a great understanding of our production timeline. We delivered to 95% of our backers within 35 days of closing our original Kickstarter campaign for the Minimalist, and that was our first time dealing with mass production. That said, we’re prepared to exceed your expectations this second time around.
So with any Kickstarter, the usual T&Cs apply. While we promise to make it right in the end, these are the areas we’re paying special attention to:
Quality Control: Like the production of our Minimalist, there are 3+ quality assurance and control checks throughout the production process, including QC for: (1) materials, (2) on-the-line production, (3) randomized selections, and (4) final checks. With these checks in place, we don’t anticipate any quality issues. But if we’re not satisfied with the final products, you can be sure we’ll incur a delay to address any hiccups to make it right.
Order Quantity: Our materials partners are excited to get underway with production of the Accomplice and Diplomat. In anticipation of healthy support, we’ve made some early estimates on order quantity. If you guys are as excited as we are, we may end up with a runaway campaign which will put pressure on our materials sourcing. We don’t anticipate challenges procuring additional leather and other materials, but it’s a reality that we’re prepared to address. Our manufacturing team is building in plans for potential delays to manage risks here.
Fulfillment: We want to get our new products in your hands ASAP, that’s why we’ve already coordinated with our partners to reserve production time so that we can begin right away and you can get your order as soon as possible, before the holidays.
We are first and foremost committed to our relationship with our backers, the ones that have been with us from the very beginning and those we’re excited to have join us in our next product evolution. We promise to keep our family of backers updated with our progress throughout the entire campaign. As always, carry forward.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We appreciate your concerns, however, after extensive research and consideration, we continue to stand by our decision not to include any RFID shielding "functionality" to our products.
