Hi Hunters! Short message from the Founders here. We're extremely excited to have been hunted by the community again. In 2015, we started a journey to solve our frustration with the every-day-carry products offered on the market. Three years later, our company has expanded from 3 to 15 passionate employees, dedicated to bringing you products that optimize everyday life. After raising over over $2M in pre-orders last year, Ekster® went on to become the world’s largest smart wallet brand available in malls ranging from Macy's to Selfridges. Our new product launch, Ekster® 3.0, is the first voice-activated smart wallet to date, compatible with both Alexa and Google Home. It offers worldwide traceability, RFID protection, instant card access and is the only smart wallet that is solar-powered. Our patented solar-charging solution does not require direct sunlight to charge and keeps the battery charged for two months. This technology is now also being implemented by FedEx to track their containers. Let us know what you think!

Overall a high quality product!

Pros:

Great design, good-quality leather, trackable feature and RFID

Cons:

Didn't find any negative points up till now.

Thanks Tom!! Lovely feedback :) Looks like you purchased one of our Gen 2 wallets. Here are some of the improvements we've made for Gen 3: NEW PRODUCTS For those who need less space, we’ve released the Secretary Cardholder as a Kickstarter exclusive launch.This new addition to the Ekster family is our slimmest wallet yet at only 0.11" (0.3cm), it’s got room for 6+ cards, coins and cash. With a minimal footprint, this one-sided RFID protected wallet is perfect for anyone living a minimalist lifestyle (or anyone with tight jeans). SLIMMER TRACKER We’ve partnered with the creators of the slimmest and loudest trackers to date, Chipolo®. At just 0.09" (0.24cm) our new tracker slips easily into your wallet, not taking up too much space, disguised as a card. VOICE ACTIVATED We're now compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. You don’t even need a smart speaker, just use voice command on either of the two apps. Find your wallet without having to move from your cosy spot on the couch, completely hands-free! NEW LOST & FOUND PLATFORM Each tracker has a unique QR code that links it to your smartphone like a fingerprint. If your wallet is lost and someone finds it, by scanning this QR code a message will be sent to you, immediately letting you know where the wallet is. STRONGER CONNECTIVITY The upgraded Bluetooth 4.0 provides a more stable connection and double the connectivity range 200ft (60m). Separation alerts are now more accurate, notifying you immediately if you stray too far from your wallet or phone. NEW CROWD-GPS Chipolo's worldwide crowd GPS tracker network spans across the globe to help you find your wallet even when it’s out of Bluetooth range. When any user is within range of your lost item, you receive a GPS update of its location. LOUDER RINGER Double press the button on the tracker to sound an alert on your phone, even when on silent mode, or use the Chipolo app on your phone to sound a loud alert from your wallet. We've now doubled the ringer volume to make finding your wallet even easier! NEW BATTERY & SOLAR PANEL e created a battery that not only slims down the tracker but also lasts twice as long with use. 3 hours of sunshine now gives you 2 months of charge. Our new solar panels now charge your tracker twice as fast, thanks to our patented integration upgrade. SLIMMER PROFILE At just 0.3 inches thick, we have officially created the slimmest cardholder to date, meaning no more wasted space in your pockets. The elastic cash bands allow for maximum storage with a next to no extra bulk. UPGRADED TRIGGER Our upgraded trigger button has been ergonomically shaped for optimal durability. The entire trigger is now made up of one solid piece of hardware, eliminating any chances of jamming/breaking so your wallet won’t give out before you do. ANODIZED ALUMINIUM The electrolytic passivation process increases the strength of the oxide layer of the metal for better resistance against scratches and wear. With our secret inner coating and mechanism redesign, your cards eject even further for easier access. NEW COLOURS When our previous Kickstarter campaign had the success it did, we knew we needed to find a way to thank all our backers. That’s why in this campaign we are offering 3 brand-new colours exclusively for our Kickstarter backers.
I love collecting wallets and I feel like half my collection are Ekster. I've backed each of their campaigns, and even gifted Ekster wallets to friends and family. Super excited to get my hands on this new 3.0 model. Maybe the guys can jump in and point out some of the cool stuff in this latest product line?
@itsthisjustin Thanks Justin! Always great to see a familiar face supporting us again!

I'm sure many of you are familiar with the infamous Volterman Smart Wallet campaign.... I fell for that scam and started doing my research.

After a year of waiting for my Volterman, without success, I decided to order an Ekster Smart Wallet from their website. It was literally delivered to my doorstep the next day. Feedback so far:

- Great card trigger system: keeps it slim and functional

- The leather is outstanding, nice aging effect

- The tracker has this solar-powered feature so you never have to plug it in, super convenient

No complaints so far and I just ordered the early bird Tracker card for 29 bucks!

Pros:

Ekster has a great track-record with delivering on time + customer service

Cons:

None so far

Which is why we keep expanding our CRM team to handle our customers' needs. After years of hard work and dedication, we’re once again ready to show you why you made the right choice in backing us.
Awesome work guys! Just ordered one of your wallets with a tracker card.
@rashid_khasanov Awesome Rashid! Thanks for the support, we can't wait to send these babies out!
