The Pitaka is a Modular Carbon Fiber Wallet that doesn’t suffer from any of the problems associated with using magnetic hinges whilst protecting legacy magnetic stripe cards. The construction helps protect your cards from being degassed or skimmed.
Made from 100% carbon fiber, it’s slim, strong and stylish. In fact, you’re probably going to have a lot of people ask you about it because it’s so unique and awesome looking.
But what makes it really cool is that it’s modular. Depending on the option you get, you can include modules for extra cards, a money clip, a multi tool, and even one for lose change, keys or SD Cards! The card holders are particularly cool because they allow you to slide the cards out of the top of the wallet with your thumb or finger. How awesome is that?
Now the base model only comes with enough space for 4 cards but, it will protect your cards just fine. Oh, and it looks good while it’s doing it.
If you want the extra modules, you can either buy a higher end model (the price goes up quite quickly), or buy only the modules you want a-la-carte. They range between $8 and $24 per module depending on your choice.
There’s even a matching carbon fiber magnetic bar that can be mounted by your door to make sure you always remember to take you wallet and keys with you.
Now while it sounds expensive, it isn’t in the long run. This wallet will last for the rest of your life and can be expanded if you need.
Even if you buy a good quality leather wallet for $50, how long will it last before you need a new one? Maybe 7-10 years, right? In 30 years, the tough carbon-fiber construction of the Pitaka will still be going strong.
The kickstarter is still going for the next couple of weeks, so if you want to get one of these wallets, head on over and take a look. Of course, it’s already fully funded and units are expected to ship in October.
