    I have been looking through the forums for a while and had the question: Why no duct tape wallets? I thought it was a pretty good question because they come in any color, they are fairly durable. Also, everyone is always looking for a wallet that will fit their needs when it is so easy to make one.

    Some pictures of one of mine:

    So are there any users out there. If not why?

    No interest whatsoever in a duct tape wallet! Why? Because I prefer to have a wallet that is constructed using proper material and designed specifically to be a wallet. A duct tape wallet, while it may be completely functional, is a bit gimicky for me.

    i got one a few years ago as a christmas present.

    "the indestructable wallet!" "lifetime guarantee!"

    it lasted 4 months before it looked like i threw it into a tree shredder. sent it away for the free replacement. that lasted 3 months.

    i binned it, and got a decent leather wallet from my girlfriend, and that is still going strong 3 years later, and is wearing in nicely.

    duct tape wallets? imo, dont bother.

    If bulky leather wallets were the only option, I'd have a duct tape wallet. However, there are many good options that perform and look considerably better than a duct tape wallet.

    That said, if it works for you, volvo63, more power to you!

    I would not trust my money being kept in ducktape. I have a pretty slim leather wallet that I trust.

    I have been using this wallet for about 2 years now, and after a few washes and many transactions its still going strong. Though I spent about 6 hours on it because I didn't want a knock off.


    Thanks for the opions guys.

    A member of EDCF having money in his wallet? That's odd...

    I carry leather. But my 13 yo son made one, and left in the floorboard of my car as soon as he was able to replace it with a leather one! Nice handywork there by the way.

    He must be new here! haha just kidding! Maybe he saved by not buying a leather wallet! Ok enough jokes.

    I used to build them myself as well, held up pretty well until I used it on a hot day and adhesive melted and then leaked all over my stuff and my pocket stuck shut!

    I don't have a duct tape wallet, but I do carry one made of Tyvek. It's very thin. That can also be an advantage of a duct tape wallet.
