Malcolm Fontier Mojito Wallet Review

Only $20! I bet that caught your attention. It’s no joke. The Mojito Wallet is available at a reduced priced direct from Malcolm Fontier. If the name isn’t familiar – the company makes vegan (synthetic) leather soft goods with lots of style at a fraction of the price. Male readers can probably empathize with my wallet woes. I carry a bulky leather wallet big and heavy enough to change the way I walk. The Mojito is one of the slimmest wallets I’ve seen and for $20, there’s no competition around.

The design is quite simple. To achieve slimness you have to sacrifice space. Instead of carrying 10 cards you can only carry 4 or in my case 2 cards and some cash. That’s usually all I need on a day to day basis. I took the Mojito to Disneyland for a trial run. The bungee strap kept my credit card and ID secure in the center slot. The secondary slot held cash and my fast passes. Downsizing was a joy. Bulky-butt syndrome (an overstuffed wallet in a back pocket )was a distant memory. I didn’t miss my regular wallet at all. The Mojito didn’t stretch and sliding things in and out was easy unlike the $80 Tumi slim wallet I had. The PU material and stitching are top-notch and it doesn’t give off that nasty rubbery smell.

$20! I’ll say it over and over again. It’s a perfect gift. It may not replace your main wallet but it’s great for occasions when bulky-butt is prohibited – say dress slacks. Buy one for yourself, a boyfriend, father, friends – anyone who is in dire need of bulky-butt syndrome.

    Royksopp background music, lol.

    How exactly does the cash fit? do you fold the bills numerous times?

    I prefer my slim flip open real leather, thanks.

    Good idea though.

    Or you could just take the junk out of your regular wallet once in awhile and put it in the side pocket =\

    Nice design but in the real world it’s just not practical. I don’t want notes r cards being displayed to the world saying “please steal me”. Also I would have no where to put loose change, which will happen especially if you use the visible cash to buy something. I’m hardly going to just put the coins in my pocket when my wallet is meant to keep that safe for me. My own wallet is a bit chunky but I have lots of stuff in it and as far as the material goes, I would never buy it if it were made out of real leather. The company have made a wise decision with that idea as they’re marketing it towards everyone, not just leather lovers so well done for that. Made made material = win. Lovely design, just needs to be incorporated onto a bigger sized wallet where it’d be more practical.

    They have other, more traditional wallets on their site: http://www.malcolmfontier.com/store/wallets

    I avoid leather for ethical reasons so these wallets are quite nice, but I agree about the design. I prefer something more concealing and something that folds up. I would be concerned about money or cards falling out with this design (whether or not that fear is justified). I also like to kind of open up my wallet and flip through my cash while it's still inside, which wouldn't be possible with this wallet.

    Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on
    a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page
    layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
