Missed our Kickstarter campaign? No worries! Head over to http://www.suprgood.com/collections/slim-2-wallets to order a Slim 2 wallet. Thanks!
We could not be more excited to introduce to you, Slim 2. Our goal was simple: create a super thin wallet that seamlessly combines the traditional beauty of leather with the flexible functionality of our original elastic Slim wallet to make the perfect minimalist wallet. We think Slim 2 will forever change your everyday carry.
The apps on our phones make it easier and easier to do more, with less in our pockets. That’s where Slim 2 comes in. It’s purposefully designed to be a beautifully simple, super-thin, card-carrying over-achiever. We believe the only things we really need in our wallets today are those few essential cards.
What’s on the inside is just as important as what’s out. We begin by pairing a soft microfiber interior with a distinct herringbone-patterned elastic band for a tight hold. A premium, smooth grain leather wraps it up, for a minimal look that feels amazing in your hand, and keeps a slim profile in your pocket.
Over time, most leather wallets stretch out with use. Not this wallet. We designed Slim 2 to be extremely flexible. To do this, we cleverly integrate an elastic band within the leather exterior. The elastic band does the actual gripping of your cards while the leather is kept from stretching out.
View from the side - stretching.
View from the top - stretching.
At only 9 mm, Slim 2 is as thin as the cards in your pocket.
Keep a large folded bill in the middle of your cards for emergencies.

Final material sample approval:
Test production run:
We have completed an intensive, 9 month-long prototyping process with our manufacturing partner. As a test with our manufacturing partner, we have produced 200 Slim 2 wallets. We feel confident that they will meet our quality standards and deliver on time.
Our next steps:
1.) Once Kickstarter funding has ended, we will place the full order for raw materials and will schedule the final production of Slim 2 wallets.
2.) Once production is scheduled, we will coordinate travel to be on site with our manufacturing partner to ensure quality and timing.
3.) When the final quantity of wallets are completed, we will assemble with the packaging and ship all our Slim 2 wallets to our shipping partner: Shipwire. Shipwire has been a trusted partner with us for over 2 years and they will professionally ship all our Slim 2 wallets to our backers.
4.) Once everyone has received their Slim 2 wallets, we will have a celebratory breakfast of pancakes at either Al's Breakfast in Minneapolis or Plow in San Francisco. Done and done!
We are looking for people who are searching for ways not only slim down their pockets, but also simplify their lives. People who believe it makes more sense to carry only what you need, not everything you own.
We would love your support to help make this project a success. Making a new product like Slim 2 is definitely a team effort and we would like to take all of you along for the journey. If you are as excited as us about Slim 2, fund our project, spread the word and together we will make Slim 2 a reality.

Thanks again to everyone who have helped us along the way!
Risks and challenges
Producing a new product is never easy. There are always issues. We have been manufacturing for over two years and have navigated these challenges. We are confident in our ability to deliver Slim 2 on time and with great quality.
Even so, we need your help to get Slim 2 into your pocket. The money we are raising goes toward covering our upfront tooling and manufacturing costs.
Our target delivery date is end of November 2015. We would love to ship earlier and we will do everything we can to make this happen.
