Cuben wallet on the cheap: Is $5.45 good for you?


I was highly amused reading all about the ultra-light Cuben wallet brought into the spotlight by William Gibson and then featured Thursday in Cool Tools.

The version reviewed there by Tom Fassbender sells for $49.50 postpaid from Hong Kong and apparently requires that you go to the post office in person to sign for it.

The one my Crack Research Team©™® unearthed (top) costs a bit more than 10% of what the high-priced iteration will set you back and will appear in your mailbox without any physical intervention or travel to your local post office.

True, it's not meant to be used as a wallet, being billed as a tent stake sack, but why let details get in the way of a good deal?
