That’s the Micro wallet by Maxpedition.
It’s a sturdy little piece of gear and I love it.
Very durable and thin. You will almost forget you have it in your pocket.
I will start by sharing with you the characteristics (as seen on the Maxpedition website) of this fine EDC item.
- Max Capacity: 4.5″ x 3″
The MICRO is truly a minimalist’s wallet with an ID window, two internal card compartment, and one external slip compartment. Perfect for your drivers license, some credit cards, a few $20 bills, two quarters (for a phone call), and a spare key. Some call this the “bikini” of wallets.
- 1000-Denier water and abrasion resistant light-weight ballistic nylon fabric
- Teflon® fabric protector for grime resistance and easy maintenance
- Triple polyurethane coated for water resistance
- High tensile strength composite nylon thread (stronger than ordinary industry standard nylon thread)
- Internal seams taped and finished
- Stress points double stitched, Bartacked or “Box-and-X” stitched for added strength
It comes in:
As said by the manufacturer it’s ideal if you do not carry lots of cards, cash and change in you on a daily basis. Personally I like to keep the EDC as light and compact as possible. That’s why I choose this wallet. It’s perfect for the task.
You have an ID window inside where you can keep your driver’s licence and ID.
In the other two inner compartments you can keep cash and/or credit cards.
On the back of the wallet you have another pocket where you can keep the most frequently used cards.
At first I thought that my cards will fall out but the wallet managed surprise me pleasantly. None of the cards can drop out. Not without any
deliberate assistance, that is. In other words – if you are looking for a good, durable, thin and light wallet the Micro is the one for you.
If you want something bigger you can check out the other wallets by Maxpedition – Spartan, Urban or CMC.
Here’s couple of videos about the Micro and it’s bigger brother – the Spartan.
