#5 Product of the DayOctober 11, 2018

Voice-activated trackable wallets with instant card access at the click of a button. Never lose your wallet or phone again.

  • Pros: 

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


    None so far

    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: 

    Stylish, functional wallet. No unnecessary features, everything works well. A+ customer service (replaced a damaged wallet for free)


    Only US dollars fit well in the money band. Card ejection mechanism will jam if you stupidly insert more than 5 cards (oops...)

    I bought my first Ekster, a Parliament, off the crowdfunding campaign a year ago, and it was just amazing. When the cart-ejection trigger stopped functioning, Ekster gave me a credit to purchase a new one (thank you!)!

    My next one is a brown Senate wallet and I actually prefer this one. I swapped out Ekster's rechargeable tracker for a Tile Slim tracker (which I prefer for the smaller size and no need to charge), and it fits all of the same things in a smaller package. If you're deciding which one to get, I recommend the Senate with no tracker (buy a tile slim instead, and keep it under the band on top of your bills).

    My suggestions to Ekster would be to increase the width slightly, because the current width doesn't hold more than a couple of bills flat. Keep improving the durability of the card release trigger. If a bluetooth tracker could be built into the wallet for a slimmer design, I would buy that. Same with an option for over cards in the main compartment.

    Thank you for the excellent product and great customer service!

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?

@ayush_chandra Thanks Ayush! We have hidden pockets for cash and coins ;) Although we do not encourage our users to carry large sums of coins in their wallet as it may affect the shape of the leather! Thanks for the kind words!

Honestly I was skeptical about a $100 wallett, and my wife was less than pleased at the thought. But I am a wallet guy and I had to try it out. I own more than 40 wallets and this is by far my favorite wallet I have found. I have not used, or bought (which made my wife a fan of Ekster) any other wallet since getting this one!! I got the parliament wallet in the blue leather. I look forward to getting more items from this company!
