It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

We love our minimalist wallets, but if we’re being honest, they’re not the best at storing the occasional rogue items we might be carrying in our pockets: some spare coins, a single key, or maybe a tube of lip balm. Distil Union’s new ZipWallet is designed for those who tend to carry just a bit more than their cards and some cash while remaining compact and highly portable.

The Distil Union ZipWallet's double-gusset design provides ample space and easy accessibility, making it easy to organize your EDC items. It has two generously sized interior slots for cards, while the fabric-lined coin pouch is meant to carry extra items such as coins, keys, an Apple AirTag, or even a small multi-tool. The external quick-access slot is perfect for your tap-to-pay and NFC cards, ensuring you never have to scour through your wallet to find them. You can organize folded bills on either side or beneath the floating pocket.

The ZipWallet is made of full-grain leather certified with a gold rating for environmental standards. The premium YKK zipper ensures your wallet is secure and compresses your items into a sleek package that fits comfortably into your front pocket. For some added peace of mind, the ZipWallet is RFID-shielded, ensuring that your tap-and-go cards remain safe while still accessible through the exterior slot.

What we like: The double-gusset design gives the ZipWallet some impressive capacity while remaining relatively slim and pocket friendly.

What to watch out for: While the ZipWallet is designed to stay slim, it can be bulky when making use of all its capacity.

Final verdict: With its high-quality materials, relatively large capacity, and slim design, the ZipWallet is perfect for those who aren’t ready for a minimalist lifestyle and need to carry just a bit more.
