About

The Flare is a thin, minimalist wallet designed with high tech materials like a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) coating to help keep your wallet contents dry and safe, and space age reflective thread so you can see it when bright light shines on it.

A Slim, Minimalist Wallet With Everything You Need and Nothing You Don't

Your wallet is something that you take with you everywhere. A wallet that is too thick is uncomfortable to carry in your pocket, and has an unflattering look. The Flare wallet has plenty of room for all your stuff, but still stays nice and thin so it sits comfortably in your pocket.

Reflective thread lights up when you shine a light on it.

Reflective Thread

I used ultra durable, reflective thread to stitch the wallet together. 

You don’t really notice the white thread in a standard situation indoors or in daylight. But if you drop your wallet in the dark or you need to signal an oncoming vehicle or Uber, the reflective threads “flare” up when direct light shines on them. 

Just the flashlight on your phone will really light it up! That's the light I used in this shot above.

The thread is NOT glow in the dark. It is reflective

Ever dropped your wallet in a dark movie theater or on the ground? 

Now you can find it quickly with your phone flashlight.

Want to signal a friend or an Uber driver approaching in a car at night? Just take out your wallet and wave it!

Room for large bills. Just enough card slots to keep it thin. Useful ID holder area.

Details That Matter

The inside of each credit card pocket has a non-slip surface that helps keep your cards from slipping out of your wallet until you are ready to take them out.

There’s also a spot to keep your ID handy in the front of the wallet to easily show to cashiers and doormen. It’s transparent so you can see ID without taking it out of your wallet. But if someone insists, there’s also a little thumb hole where you can quickly grip the ID and slide it right out to hand over.

Compare the Flare to a Regular Wallet Filled With 7 Cards

If you’ve never tried a thin wallet before, you’re going to absolutely love the difference it makes.

It’s crazy how much thinner your wallet will be, even though you have the same amount of items in it!

Both wallets contain 7 cards, an ID and some bills. Look how much thinner the Flare is!

Durable Water Repellant (DWR) Coating to Keep Your Stuff Safe

The DWR coating on the exterior surface of the wallet gives you a little bit of extra protection against the elements. But more importantly, it keeps your wallet nice and clean looking.

A DWR coating means that your wallet contents will stay a little bit drier, and your wallet will keep looking new for longer.

Risks and challenges

I've successfully launched and delivered on two previous Kickstarter projects and feel that I am prepared to fully deliver again with this project.

I am working with a new manufacturing partner on this wallet, so there is always a small chance with any new product that the manufacturing could be delayed or that the finished product doesn't live up to the awesome prototype.

I feel confident that I will deliver a wallet that you will be proud to carry and will be showing off to your friends whenever it's dark outside, so I hope you'll have confidence in me!
