Even with the latest and greatest smartphones releasing year after year, so many EDCers still swear by good ol' fashioned pen and paper. They make an unbeatable duo when it comes to fleshing out ideas and keeping tabs on things without having to swipe through app menus and folders. But unlike a smartphone, they're not always the easiest thing to slip into your pockets day in and day out. The team at Dango Products have had success with taking something easy and essential to carry—your wallet—and redesigning it to help you carry more, smarter. Their latest project, the P01 Pioneer Wallet, consolidates your pen and paper in one place, but does it in a more compact wallet-sized form factor rather than your typically bulky journal cover design.

One big reason the P01 Pioneer is able to easily carry everything in such a compact footprint is because Dango designed every component from the ground up to fit together perfectly. They've taken one of the oldest tricks in the EDC playbook of slipping a pen into the spine of your wallet, then upped the execution. The pen was custom designed to slot into the spine of the P01 so it sits flush. To get that perfect fit, it's CNC machined in the USA out of a lightweight, anodized aluminum like you'd expect to see on quality flashlights and other EDC tools. It boasts write-anywhere performance thanks to a pressurized ballpoint ink refill, and it's compatible with the crowd favorite Fisher Space Pen refill as well. The business end of the pen narrows down to a minimalist grip system of 3 silicone o-rings while the back of the pen comes to a 4-way slotted tip for multiple attachment configurations. By now the P01 campaign hit its first stretch goal, so backing the project will get you a free paracord lanyard to easily retrieve the pen.

The other part of the equation is the notebook. It's not the largest notebook you can carry, but it might be one of the most convenient ones. At a modest 24 pages, it's a good balance between portability and thinness without needing replacements too often. Not to mention it's stitched and finished in the USA then protected from excess wear and tear in the P01 wallet itself.

Of course, the P01 is still an EDCer's wallet at its core. It has some of the best elements of all the different kinds of wallets you can carry in one. For starters, it's made in the USA from premium Italian veg-tan leather for that patina after break in and familiar feel in hand. But that's where the similarities with traditional leather wallets end. The leather comes laminated with an RFID-blocking material for your security and geometric patterning give a look and ergonomic feel that lean towards the future. The P01 uses a silicone strap for extra security and versatility like you'd find on more modern minimalist wallets. It's designed to accommodate up to 20 cards as well as Dango's wallet-sized multi-tool from their earlier line of wallets, the MT02. With options for a pen, notebook, multi-tool, and cards, it's got room for a big chunk of your daily kit.

There's just a month left to back the P01 on Kickstarter. It comes in two colorways — a natural tan with silver or a fully blacked out setup, now with a free paracord lanyard as part of the campaign's first unlocked stretch goal. Check it out in more detail at the link below.

I love the concept, but the whole ‘minimalist’ wallet thing just doesn’t work for me. I’ve too many things I need in my wallet each day.
May work for some, but to me it's going to minimalist in size and 2 items that shouldn't be combined. I use notebooks a lot and wouldn't want to pull out a wallet every time to take a note. I write pretty small, but that notebook looks way too tiny for me and I likely would never use the included pen as it wouldn't take my G2 refills!
Man, people sure love overpaying for a piece of leather! I recommend this guy on Etsy.

I have 2 of them and they're great!
Might check it out but still too bulky with that pen in the middle!
