Cascade Wallet | Simplify Your Everyday Carry

CA$ 87,933

If you missed our Kickstarter, it's still not too late to pre-order your Cascade Wallet!

Here are links to our social media outlets. Let's stay in touch!

Overview.

There's no room for a bulky wallet in the modern day. If you're like us, you want a sleek and secure wallet that adapts to your everyday needs. Accessing your cards is now convenient and inspiring with the Cascade card ejection feature. You're able to carry more when you need to with the detachable Cascade Cover. To top it all off, select from several colour and engraving options to make it your very own. Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to introduce to you - Cascade Wallet.

Design.

The uni-body design is machined from a single piece of aluminum offering a solid, durable, yet refreshing look. About the size of your credit card and only 10.3mm thin, you can carry up to 7 standard cards and with the Cover (see Cover section below) an additional 8 cards comfortably so you can have the RFID protection without having to leave anything behind.

Colour.

Make a colourful statement. Choose from 5 hand-picked colours and then complement it with a selection from 3 trim finishes (Jet Black, Chrome, or Rose Gold). The chamfers of the Cascade Wallet body is polished to give a pristine appeal no matter what colour you select.

Features.

The Cascade Wallet features a card ejection mechanism that allows your cards to spring to life in a cascade fashion with the slide of a button. With something so ubiquitous like your wallet, we were compelled to incorporate this cascade feature so that you can conveniently access your cards and add some flavour to your everyday experience.

On the same token — you can cascade your banknotes or clip it along with your business card to the back using our uniquely designed snap clip. The silicone contact pads ensure your clipped items stay put.

Security.

The anodized aircraft-grade aluminum has exceptional strength properties to prevent any physical damage to the cards housed as compared with flexible wallets. More importantly, the Cascade Wallet secures your credit, debit, and identification cards from wireless identity theft. The aluminum walls act as a firewall preventing unauthorized access to your personal and financial information.

Engrave.

Express yourself to the fullest with the Cascade Wallet. We will be using a fibre optic laser with engraving resolutions of up to 1200 dpi to provide a quality finish. You can add a few lines of your favourite lyrics, engrave your team logo, portrait, or just about anything to make your Cascade Wallet your very own.

Cover.

Loyalty, reward cards, and banknotes stack up. No sweat, we’ve got you covered. The Cover is made from a matte polyurethane leather with a micro-fibre lining and comes in 5 complementary colours. What's more — the Cover seamlessly meshes with and wraps around the Cascade Wallet so you can carry more with the same great protection.

Exclusive.

Kickstarter Green. Product Red. Pledges for these limited edition colours are reserved for the backers who wish to go the extra mile to help bring the Cascade Wallet to life. A matching Cover and engraving are included at this pledge level. These are exclusive only to Kickstarter backers and won’t ever be available at retail.

Flashback.

Over the past year, we've worked day and night designing, prototyping, testing, building, breaking, and repeating this process several times before arriving at a product that we are proud to share with you.

Next Steps.

We are currently wrapping up validation testing of the latest prototype, which includes functional, reliability, and mechanical testing among several others.

With your support, we'll be able to work with experienced manufacturing partners to develop tooling, gauges, and fixtures required for volume production. The funding will go towards manufacturing, assembly, packaging and logistics costs.

For US and international backers, don't let the Canadian dollar stop you from pledging as you'll pay less since the CAD is weaker than the USD, EURO or GBP. Worldwide shipping is included.

Risks and challenges

Through multiple design iterations, we are in the process of finalizing the production-ready prototype. Despite increased processing times, we plan to individually machine each component to ensure a high level of craftsmanship and quality to deliver a product that we ourselves would be proud to own.

Mass-producing something physical and functional comes with its own set of challenges from dealing with unexpected processing setbacks to ensuring fit and finish of each assembly. With this in mind, our designers and engineers have been heads down for the last little while working with our manufacturing team to develop processes and standards for every stage of production and assembly to ensure a smooth transition from prototype to volume production.
