The best wallet I've owned so far, fit easily in the pocket and is very resistant. I have about 9 cards in it and few coins, it hold very well.
Truly a beautiful wallet. I was blown away when I received it. Holds together well, keeps my items in place, it's slim and minimal. I could not be happier!
Just to share my feedback after a couple weeks of usage (I think it's been a couple weeks).
Basically it feels like it isn't exceptional at any of the features.
Getting bills out is awkward, as because they're folded I can't pick and choose which ones I'm getting out.
The cards are fine, although not exceptional either.
The coins, because there is no little pocket for them to rest on basically I have to get them out onto my hand and handle them from there. Not particularly comfortable. However I was impressed with how many coins it could hold, that was actually pretty good.
The bills being hard to sort through would be the biggest minus, I think.
I noticed that somehow the tightness of the wallet on the bills makes the bills stick together more as well, which makes it harder to get out only one bill once you have picked out which bill you want to take out.
Of course one can make it less tight by opening it more, but then I have a fear that it will unravel, so I don't do it very much.
That's as far as the review goes :)
Note this review is basically a copy-paste from an email I sent to them directly. They said if I could post the review that'd be great :)
This wallet is wha tit claims to be, but with a tactile feel that surprises. Its light, and clever. A credit to the artisan.
I needed a super-thin, low maintenance wallet for five cards, and this wallet delivers. I've been using mine for about one month, and it seems to be holding up nicely - no signs of wear and tear. I love that there are no attachments, nothing sticking out to catch on my pocket, and it's absolutely flat. I couldn't find anything like this wallet anywhere else, and I'm not sure I remember how I stumbled onto it other than meticulously combing my google search results. You might want to spend some cash on SEO results, LOL . Anyway, bottom line is this: outstanding value and performance in an ultra-thin wallet. Thank you!!!
No big wallet even when you do not have that many cards anymore. It very slim and handy. After receiving the first wallet I bought an other one with different size right away. After using the wallets for weeks I'm still very happy with them.
My old wallet being bulky and voluminous ended up in my bag anyway, many times being forgotten there and one time money missing too. That's when I started looking for a smaller wallet and decided on this one after a tedious analysis of all others available. Needless to say, I get plenty compliments for it. Only thing that bothers me is the fiddling for putting in the money and other inner pockets.
Great front pocket wallet for people who carry a little bit of cash. There are a couple things that frustrate me (the flap behind the cash section comes undone, and the larger card pocket takes a few extra seconds to put back together than sliding the card back into a slot) but the overall design is very slim and very practical.
Why I bought it: I wanted a compact wallet for my front pocket that will fit with my car keys on days I drive my car, or fit comfortable and compactly in my front pocket when I ride my motorcycle.
How I use it:
- I keep my main credit card (for about 70% of purchases_) in the exterior slot
- drivers license and second most-used card in the interior 2-card slot
- health insurance card, pharmacy card, debit card, and grocery store/fuel credit card in the 4 card slot
- 5-10 bills in the bill slot
- very slim
- quite tough (much tougher than I thought when I read "paper")
- can hold a lot more than you'd think just looking at it (all the stuff I mentioned above fits without issue)
- disappears into a front pocket better than any other slim wallet that also holds cash
- larger card pocket (the one for 4 cards) comes undone when trying to pull a card out, so you need to put it back together. Can be a little annoying when it takes you 10 seconds more to put your card away than it would if you just slid it back into a slot.
- I would like to see a version of this wallet that doesn't have the flat between the cash pocket and the receipt pocket as every time I go to pay with cash this flap pops out and folds the cash over, so I need to flatten the cash back.
Overall, my two cons are just nitpicks but that's how close this wallet is to being a perfect front pocket wallet if you also use cash. This is definitely a 5-star wallet - it's the best that I've tried, and I heartily recommend this product. If there's another model released without the cash/receipt flap (would likely require a redesign of the wallet) and with a mo...
Purchased this a month or two ago. Received it very quickly and immediately started carrying it everyday. Typically, I carry a Magpul DAKA wallet, but this wallet is better imo. Extremely thin, holds cards, cash and maybe coins (haven’t tested the last one yet), and looks damn nice.
I am very satisfied with the function and appearance of the wallet. After three months, I have had no issue with the craftsmanship or function. I was also impressed with the level of customer care from the company. Timely e-mails after ordering to let me know the product would have a brief delay in shipment due to increased order volume, and a hand written thank you note that arrived with the wallet when delivered. I would recommend to anyone!
Had this sleeve wallet since august and I wanted to wait a bit before writing a review. So far this wallet has shown no wear and tear from daily use. The design is perfect for daily card users and the paper aesthetic makes it stand out against traditional leather or nylon based wallets. There is room for cash but I havent used it as much since I dont really carry cash on me. The wallet is perfect and affordable for those looking for a minimal card sleeve wallet and is something I will definitely recommend.
I've been looking for a minimalist wallet that is both sustainable, simple, handcrafted, and beautiful. Kamino Cash Sleeve is the perfect fit. Unlike the other ones you see using Tyvek with all the crazy graphics on them, Kamino is simple and elegant. And I love the versatility of it and all of the little pockets where you can put cards and cash in. I think the Kamino cash sleeve is the perfect size for what I needed, fit 5-7 cards and some dollar bills. Thank you for making this! I'll probably buy another one and I'll be sharing it with my friends as well!
Love the look and function of this slim wallet. It fits a few essential cards, cash and coins without bulk.
I was looking for a minimalist wallet as I am tired of carrying bulky ones and I stumbled upon the Kamino wallet online. I received it just today and I can vouch for the quality, ingenuity and practicality of the wallet. I immediately filled it with 8 paper bills and it is still looking compact, I intend to insert a couple of cards more and I don't worry that it will be deformed. I love the vintage vibes that it has and I look forward to using it for many months and years to come. Thanks Yamamoto-san and the rest of your team for creating a thing of beauty!
I bought this wallet because I wanted a vegan wallet that was slim, could hold cash, cards, and coins. This wallet does it all.
Durability: Although it's made of paper, it's definitely water proof. I've been using it for two months don't see any signs of breakdown. The only note of caution is that the indigo from raw denim will bleed a bit into the tan color of the wallet. This happened on a tan leather wallet of mine, too, so isn't a fault of the Kamino wallet. If you wear raw denim, it might be better to go for the dark brown color.
Functionality: Again, I love how slim the wallet is despite being able to simultaneously hold 6+ cards and cash and coins. It fits comfortably in my front pocket. The only thing I would want to improve is that coins can spill out if you open the wallet horizontally, that is, with the bill access facing up. The way to deal with this is to open the wallet vertically. The problem with opening it vertically however, is that it's trickier to quickly put in cash.
After two months with my wallet, I can say it was the best purchase I ever made. Does not show signs of wear. My cards, notes and some coins fit perfectly.
I might buy another one just to have the other color.
The Kamino wallet is brilliant. Having previously owned a mighty wallet for the last 7 years, I wanted something that was just as durable and simple. This wallet has thus far proved itself to be all those things, even though it's only made of folded paper it is surprisingly strong. Another highlight was that I was tired of carrying around a bulky wallet that would just get stuffed with random cards I never use, the Kamino wallet solved that problem by limiting the size of cards I can stuff in (otherwise it won't close properly) and the coin pocket is a great bonus for carrying around spare change. It looks cool fits everything I need and the simplicity is brilliant. All in all, I would definitely recommend this wallet to anyone looking for a durable and functional wallet that doesn't compromise on style (it even fits in a shirt pocket when full).
This wallet’s simple and functional design makes it aesthetically pleasing and very useful. Often times when I take it out to pay for something, people tend to ask about it, or where I got it from. They are always amazed when they find out that it is essentially made from paper with precise cuts and folds that form it into a wallet, and also how durable it is. I carry it daily and enjoy it very much.
Got it yesterday. I love it!!.
I’m the type that’s always in search of the best minimal wallet and the only thing that ever came close was a Louis Vuitton card holder. Sadly, the 300 dollar wallet didn’t hold up because the canvas tend to crack at the crease and the upgrade to leather was another 200 bucks. I’ve gone through magpul, those rubber band wallets, leather wallets, multiple wallets with elastic bands, but they all have similar problems. The materials tend to stretch overtime and my cards tend to fall out after a year or so. I’m hoping this isn’t the case with the wallet and it’s something I can’t comment on until I have more time with it.
What I do love about the wallet is the design. It is very simple, minimal, yet very organic with the way the creases give it its character. It’s a very smart design that holds all the cards I need with my main card being quickly accessible. The cash portion is also just perfect. Tip: if you trifold the cash, it won’t stick out like it does in pictures. The shape allows it to be the size of a credit card. The material let’s it be the thinnest it can be, almost as thin as those magpul wallets. The design stores everything pretty securely.
If this material holds up, I feel like I may have found my perfect wallet.
Received my card sleeve today and love it! Moved from my previous minimal wallet to this one in a flash. Love the beautiful simple design, the paper material feels great and study, easily holds my cards and a few bills for when I need cash. Love the fact there are no bands to lose, snaps to break or corrode, elastic to wear out. People always comment on my minimal wallet and I'm sure this one will be admired. Highly recommended. I plan on purchasing a few more for backups. Would love to see more colors and designs, even plain white that one could decorate as desired. Thank you again.
This wallet is extremely lightweight and unobtrusive, yet holds cash as well as cards which is exactly what I was looking for. As someone who previously had a bulky wallet this is a dramatic change as it takes up next to no room in my pocket. I've been using it for a few months now and have found the design is very intuitive and the card slot on the back for quick access is super handy. The material feels very robust too. All in all, very pleased with my purchase.
Beautiful wallet, great craftsmanship. It arrived beautifully wrapped, was a pleasure to receive. Very easy to use. I love it
I use this wallet when I’m going out and have a small over the shoulder bag. It keeps everything I need organized. It doesn’t take up much space at all and is super light. Someone also spilled gross beer all over it and I just wiped it off no problem. Very durable, very useful and overall a great buy.
I always buy the minimal wallet size, but this one is really beats them all. I was little skeptical about it before I have it. It worth every penny as it takes loads of cards, notes and bills as well. The single card slot at outside takes two easily after breaking in. The material is amazing. I felt that it wouldn’t hold for long at the beginning but I was wrong as the material is really strong enough for normal use. One or two wrinkles at the corners have appeared maybe from other stuff in my pocket but few rubs take them away. Also Kan is amazing guy, he responds quickly and he sent another piece for me free of charge when I haven’t received the first one.
