The EDC wallet of a minimalist’s dreams is one that doesn’t compromise on what you can carry while staying as compact as possible. And while it’s easy enough to make a wallet compact, doing so without stripping away its essential functionality is the real challenge. That’s why Portland, OR based Wayfinder Carry combines their 20 years of past design experience from Nike with cutting edge materials and manufacturing technology in their pursuit of pure simplicity in their gear. For example, the Wayfinder Daybreaker Billfold features a versatile design that’s perfect for urban, outdoor, and travel EDC anywhere in the world thanks to its stitchless, RF-welded construction. The result is a high performance, high capacity wallet with a low profile that any EDCer can appreciate.

The secret to the Daybreaker’s slim silhouette is the combination of what it’s made of and how it’s made. It starts with a TPU-coated polyester material that’s waterproof, hydrophobic, stretch-resistant, grime-resistant, flexible, and tactile, all coming together to provide all-conditions performance. It’s laser cut to precision in a single piece, then folded and bonded at the seams. This sew-free construction creates strong seals without the need for excess material to sew or the risk of stitches unraveling, keeping the wallet thin, light, and durable.

The Daybreaker Billfold design accommodates up to 16 cards within its internal, horizontally cascaded card slots. Behind the card slots lies its billfold section that’s sized slightly taller to fit boarding passes and various paper currencies, making it a minimalist wallet option when you travel. Its full-length design makes carrying cash easier than most minimalist wallets, which require you to fold and cram bills and adds to the wallet’s thickness. Despite the Daybreaker’s large capacity, it stays thin at 0.28“ when empty and lightweight at just 1.3 ounces.

If you’re looking for a more technical upgrade to your bulky leather wallet, or you want a minimalist option that’s more intuitive and comfortable than a metal plate wallet, a Wayfinder wallet might fit the bill. You can check out the Daybreaker Billfold in more detail at the link below.
