This Superman Mighty Wallet is the best wallet I ever bought

I’m a tech geek who happens to hate carrying things around in his back pocket — especially bulky wallets. And I’ve finally solved that problem in a dynamite way.

For more than two years now, I’ve been looking for the best wallet for my lifestyle. I wanted something that I could whip out of my front pocket quickly, to access cards or cash without a bunch of fumbling. I also needed it to feel non existent, so it doesn’t bother me when I’m out doing all the things we geeks do: hiking, biking, flying drones … you know, cool stuff.

After spending far too much money, waiting far too long on Kickstarter projects to ship, and fumbling around far too much for my cards, I happened upon something legendary. Well, maybe it’s not legendary — not yet, anyway, but it’s definitely epic.

See, I’m a Loot Crate customer. I just love getting my monthly geek-out delivered in the mail. In May the service tucked a Superman VS. Batman Mighty Wallet in with the rest of the loot. When I first saw it, I kind of chuckled because it looked like a folded piece of paper. And well, I could just see sweat tearing that apart in a day, or maybe two tops if one of them was spent in front of the computer, and not out hard-core droning.

But then I picked it up and started reading about it. Turns out, Mighty Wallets are made of something called Tyvek. It’s really an awesome material. The DuPont website has more info: “Tyvek brand protective material is a family of tough, durable spunbonded olefin sheet products that are stronger than paper and more cost-effective and versatile than fabrics. It has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than paper, and absorbs little or no moisture” — which is true, it’s never all sweaty when I pull it out of my pocket. The site adds that Tyvek is strong and rip-resistant, as you can see when I try to rip this wallet. And believe me, I’ve really tried). It’s also made of environmentally responsible material.

It’s a very soft material, and actually feels great in my pocket. It’s easy to grab, and holds my debit cards, my licence, my drone license, my cash (when I have some), and a picture of my dog Abbey — which I could actually add TO the wallet, because on the Dynomighty website, you can actually make your very own custom wallet.

The price is right too; this cool Superman version cost me $15. Then I had to get a custom Captain America wallet. Why not, right? The custom one set me back $30, because I chose to add RFID protection to it, so that my cards are guarded from silly people who would want to steal my info by scanning my pocket remotely with an RFID reader. Yep, that’s a thing…

Want to hook yourself up with one of these bad boys? Head over to Dynomighty.com and tell them Digital Trends sent you.

If you plan to get one, what would you want on it? Superman? Batman? Custom? Want to see a custom Digital Trends wallet? The possibilities are endless. Let me know in the comments below — and if you get one, lets see some pictures.
