HD Wallet Review

I picked up an HD Wallet from a Kickstarter campaign that got funded last month. It just arrived so here is my photo dump with my initial thoughts. Mousing over the images will display my captions or you can click the images.

The anodizing seams to be really cheap or horribly done. I’ve got a few nicks on the edges just by handling the wallet while putting my cards in and out a few times. It almost seams as if it was painted instead of anodized.

The HD Wallet is a slim modern all aluminum wallet for today’s lifestyle. It holds everything you need, and is built at an unmatched level of quality.

I will be using this as my EDC wallet and in a week or two, I’ll update this post.
