"Product designer Steven Elliot became quite known for his original Dash Wallet. After hitting a home run with the first version, Elliot decided it was time to introduce a new and improved version using the feedback from customers. Still sporting the same minimalistic styling from the first go around, the Dash 2.0 is made from a blend of leather and elastic, and includes that handy quickdraw slot to use your “most used” card without ever removing it from the wallet itself."
"The one-piece Dash wallet, named after the designer’s dog who sent his previous wallet to that Great Pocket in the Sky, is another card-centric conveyance focused on easier retrieval of key credit cards... The killer feature is a small square hole in the side that enables you to partially pop out a credit card for a quick swipe."
"The Dash Wallet earned high praise for a unique design that's super-thin and minimal, but that doesn't force you to abandon everything, or shove everything into stacks so tightly bound that you can't get access to anything."
"Crafted from a single piece of black elastic fabric, it compresses your cards and cash inside, keeping them in place and the wallet itself a lot thinner and more manageable. The result? Less visits to the chiropractor, better fitting clothes, and a better looking you."
If you are looking for a rugged, like wallet that builds character the more it is used then the Dash 3.0 Wallet is the one for you. The black vegetable tanned model is made from a thicker hide than you usually find in leather wallets. The threading is also much thicker to ensure durability and the lining made from ultra suede. Both the threading and edging are wax coated so you know they are going to go the distance and the cash slot has a reinforced opening thanks to the extra threading.
"Elliot Havok’s Dash is made from a single piece of elastic fabric, folded on itself to form three compartments: one quickdraw slot with thumb hole for fast access to your most used card, one for the rest of your cards, and another on the flip side for cash. Plus, it’s only marginally thicker than its contents, rendering the pocket bulge a thing of the past."
"It accommodates the vertical usage of chip powered cards in a more durable timeless frame combining leather with elastic. Being big fans of minimalist wallets at Man of Many, this wallet looks like it could be a winner on all fronts"
"Thin, fast, and smart in the way we humans like to ascribe intelligence to inanimate objects, Dash sports two compartments for cards: one a superbly coined "quickdraw slot" that allows for lickety split production of just your favorite plastic money genie's magnetic strip for instant slide-and-swipe capabilities; and another for the rest of your cards, credit, ID, NAMBLA membership, or otherwise. For holdout cash carriers, Dash also has a third pouch on the bottom suited to fat wads of greenbacks."
"Any improvement over the scoliosis-inducing mammoths we carry today is welcome, and the DASH wallet is one of our favorites. It’s a slim wallet that intends for you to carry the essentials, and in this it’s fairly banal. But what sets it apart is the little window on the side of its “quickdraw compartment” that allows you to partially push out one card so that the magnetic stripe is exposed, and use it without actually taking it out."
"Back by popular demand, the crew over at Dash Wallets have upgraded their highly popular Quickdraw wallet with the introduction of Dash 4.0. Obviously, bulky wallets have become a thing of the past and this even more slimmed down version proves it."
"Because it is so thin and the design is so well done, it can hold quite a few items of cards and/or cash without becoming over-loaded or over-bulky. And on top of everything else, it is very reasonably priced. In my opinion, the Dash 3.0 is easily the best yet of Steven Elliot’s Dash wallet designs and while I continue to use the Dash 3.0."
"Dash Wallet was designed with the idea of simplicity in mind. When you take a look at the wallet you can notice how simple yet great it looks."
"The vision behind Dash’s design is to omit unnecessary wallet fillers and to only carry the essentials. There are two compartments for cards and a third for cash. Dash strives to provide fast and easy access for the on-the-go person."
My Dash arrived yesterday and I'm absolutely happy with it. People don't understand but who cares I had a small wallet before, but Dash is half the size. I already ordered a Dash 2.0 Thank you for creating useful stuff and cool slim wallets.
I received my Dash yesterday and transferred my stuff from my wallet. You can't get much more minimalist than this. It's yet to be seen how well it holds up (my leather wallet has lasted me for 5+ years and is still in good shape) but my initial impression is good.
Thanks for delivering as promised. I hope is goes really well for you Steve.
I thank you very much for everything and again, thank you for coming up with this idea of the wallet, it is fantastic and really took away from the pain of carrying a big wallet.
I received mine yesterday. I'm quite happy with it so far. I've always preferred a front pocket wallet over a back pocket wallet. The Dash 2.0 is a bit smaller than the front wallet I used to use before this and it's a bit lighter. After a few hours in my pocket, I'm a happy camper.
Awesome thanks! I am super happy with the Dash 1.0 that I got, and I'm super stoked to get the new version. Thanks for everything!
Excellent work! Have had this for a week now and does what I need it to which is feel comfortable on the motorbike. The green stitching looks like it's been done by a blind kid :-) but I'm very happy with it. Will definitely get the next one. Very cool slim wallets.
I've also been using mine for a month and I'm pretty happy with it.
Steven, I got it! I think it was the one you sent via delivery confirm because its navy. First, I love it. Switched my stuff to it yesterday and can't go back. Second, thanks for sticking with me. I never received the first two so if there is some kind of escalation you can do on that "IMB" confirmation so you get refunded your shipping, please do. I doubt they will ever arrive and someone from the USPS is enjoying a free Dash now. :)
Just got mine in the mail and it is AWESOME! Most convenient wallet ever. It's a huge improvement over the first version. And the leather / fabric hybrid works really well. I pulled it out at a GameStop and the clerks were impressed by it too. :D Black Vertical.
My slim wallet is near perfect! You did a great job, Can't expect a better product for $16!
I received mine today! Mr. Elliot you have created something spectacular! It's far better than expectations, and they were pretty. The minimalistic simplicity is, simply, beautiful.
Received my dash, and I love it. Thanks! Best compact wallets.
Slimmest wallet I've ever owned, yet it still fits everything I need. ID, insurance & credit cards, a fold of cash - all without feeling stressed. Plus RFID blocking (no way of testing this) and its still stylish.
The smell is real though. Like new rubber. Wrapped mine in a dryer sheet & tucked it under the mattress for two days and it was much better. Completely odor-free after a few days of use. Bought a second one as a gift for a friend that carries what can only be described as a leather cinder block around in his back pocket. Lighten up, man!
Exactly what I was looking for. Very well crafted, great attention to detail and quick delivery at a low price.
This by far has been my favorite wallet I've ever had. I have had this style since it was a kickstarter and I have ordered replacements each time I'm ready for a new one. The only thing I could hope for was an upgraded version with slightly nicer leather and better edge paint.
This is my second one, the first one did not show signs of wear and tear at all, unfortunately I lost it. Did not hesitate to get it once again, and I always get compliments on it, awesome quiality and craftsmanship ! Keep up the good work !
I was looking for a slim wallet and it delivers. Slim and small.
I love this wallet. It's tiny, discreet, and rather conservative. I keep my employee ID in the quick draw slot with my license right behind that. With the horizontal opening, I simply push up on my ID and swipe into my building. I also carry my debit and two credit cards PLUS my insurance cards. I also keep a couple of bills in case I'm in one of those "cash only" establishments. If you are looking for a great minimalist wallet, get this one.
This wallet has many more positives than negatives. It is exactly what I had been looking for in terms of size, sturdiness and what it will securely hold. I bought it on Kickstarter - probably 10-12 months ago and it still holds a number of cards and a moderate amount of cash and I have no worries about things falling out. The wallet holds the items securely, fits in the front pocket easily, is large enough to hold the cards I need, but is also small enough that it forces me to clean out bits of paper, receipts and the like on a regular basis. After all, it is minimalist!
I have no idea what smell others complained about. If there was one, it was gone very soon.
The only downside is that the edges tend to fray and it's starting to look a bit ragged with loose threads hanging loose. Sometime, sooner than later I'm afraid, it will look too threadworn for my taste. Too bad because that threadbare look has not reduced its firmness oddly enough. Cards and cash simply do not fall out.
But I would buy one again. It is not a $100+ wallet and if I get 18 months out of it, it was money well spent.
I bought this wallet during their kick starter project. I have actively used it now on two trips, one to Canada and one to Egypt. At first I was not sure if I would like this wallet or not... why do I need to have my passport on me at all times during a trip? However, there has been a few occasions between these two trips where this was a must to have on me. The card pockets provide just enough space for a credit card or two during the trip and couple of extra ids. The money area big enough for bills of both countries I have visited... especially when cash is how in Egypt almost everything is bought. If you are looking for a minimalist wallet for travel. Give this a try.
I love this Dash wallet. It was just what I was after, it's light weight and slim but still holds the stuff I need. It has been in my pocket everyday for a few months now and it is holding up beautifully. If only the rest of my life could be as organised and minimal as this wallet. Excellent service and international postage as well.
This is my favorite wallet. Slim, sturdy, and polished at the same time. Holds everything I need with a super slim profile. Couldn't be happier.
I just recieved mine and it is great, i love it. Its super thin the pocket hold perfectly the cash stays in between the pocket. I recommend
