Last year I was looking for a new wallet. The one I used until then was chunky and made of leather. I was looking for something smaller and lighter but it still needed a pocket for coins. I found a picture of the Mighty Wallet that was modified with a pocket for coins (link).
My criteria for a new wallet is that is has to be as small as possible, still have enough pockets for cards, bills and most important a pocket for coins.
A lot of lightweight/minimalist options out there don’t have a pocket for coins. They just focus on credit-cards and bills. This might work in some countries but for me that is just not an option. I like to pay with cash whenever possible. To pay in cash can actually save money, as you have more control over how much you actually spend.
You will need the following items:
- Mighty Wallet
1. Before you do anything you have to get the additional Tyvek that comes with you Mighty Wallet.
Slide it into the side pocket that you want to use for your coins. Then you have to glue it to the inside.
2. the next thing you have to do is position the velcro on the Mighty Wallet and on the flap.
After that you just have to cut the excessive tyvek from the flap. With that you have the finished product.
I’ve made this wallet last July before my three month trip to the US in August. I used it every day since.
After 6 month of use
The tyvek is a bit more flabby then in the beginning and there are some coloration from jeans. There are some smal issues as with this wallet. The design of the mighty wallet is a folded piece Tyvek, this creates some drawbacks. For example the pocket that I use for the coins, isn’t a closed pocket. If you are careful and keep it folded in the middle, then the coins won’t fall out but if you leave it unfolded then it can happen that some coins will fall out on the opposite side pocket.
If you use that same pocket on the opposite side to store some cards, then these might fall out too. That happened to me more than once so often that I just don’t use it anymore.
All in all it is a good product and I will keep using it.
The cool thing with the Mighty Wallet is that there are so many motives and there is something for everyone.
