    Got it! Thank you! I had wondered how long the elastic would last and thought it was expensive if I could only use it til then!

    So the 2 things I always have on me are my phone and my wallet. In the interest of truly slimming down my daily carry I'd like a phone case that can carry my drivers license, 4 embossed cards and a few notes. I've not seen anything that'll do the job and would negate my need for a wallet totally. Anyone know of anything?

    Thought that might be a neat idea myself recently, but then thought it would be too thick and bulky all in 1, so am happy with my phone in it's otterbox case and a solid design aluminium wallet

    I'm still rocking the Trove Wallet

    anyone got any new ones?

  6. #406
    I'm still rocking my Trove Explorer - though I want one with a darker colour scheme as I find the orange and blue a bit loud for day to day usage.

    The one complaint I have is poor water protection. In rainy Holland if I'm cycling around and its in my pocket it can get soaked which of course can soak the contents too. Though I'm not sure if there can be any inherent design changed to make it better.

    think my ideal will be

    the trove with a pull up tab like the loft of cambie

    sometime getting into the Trove can be a little annoying, have to sometimes have the credit card number upwards to use the embossed as grip :)

    Still loving my solid design one, just wish i'd gone for the brass rather than black anodised aluminium as it's starting to pick up a scratch or 2 and think an aged weathered brass one would look much nicer long term

    I'm enjoying the loft of cambie one currently but the trove and solid design are still firm favorites.

    Always looking for something new though

    Its a good observation - especially for the single 'quick draw' slot would be an absolute god send.

    I use Android Pay, it doesn't seem that secure as surprisingly it just needs the screen to be on and not unlocked to pay. I take the risk for the convenience.

    After reading this thread, I've got the Securid Miniwallet Crisple Black.
    Excellent wallet, very minimal.
    After a couple weeks , I switched back to my normal wallet (cards/billfold) but found it simply too big to carry in comparison to the Miniwallet.
    Only issue is if I have to carry more than £100, I have to use a super slim note only wallet in addition to the Miniwallet.
    Taking into consideration the above, still happy with the Miniwallet.

    Yeah I've backed it too. I tried one of the original ones but felt it was a bit overpriced for what it was, as well as having difficulty accessing my cards from it. The early bird price along with the pull tab seems much more palatable! I know from experience with the original Loft of Cambie wallet that having that extra ability to pull your cards up is very handy.

    Boo! i thought i'd leave it till tonight and missed the damn £19 one! Now backed at 25 +5 for shipping. Which colours are people thinking of at the moment? I reckon dark/black - the orange/blue scheme i have is ok, but a bit loud/tiring for everyday use.

    Yep, the super-early birds went quickly! I'm thinking black/black, although I'd like to see some better pics of the navy as I may be tempted for a change. Shame there's no brown either as that might've swayed me too.

    I think it's been live for a day(?) - there were still like 180 odd available at 5pm and boom gone! I agree a 'traditional' pale brown would be interesting, there is one in one of the pics but not one of the options its seems.

    Which pic do you mean? I think the brown leather of this v1.0 one (coffee) would be nice, with matching elastic and other bits:


  22. #422
    Oops its a gif, any simple way of getting that in a reply? Otherwise its in the pledge just above the 'Your Support'. That is definitely not yellow or orange as advertised below.

    Ah right, I see what you mean. It definitely looks like a tan colour!

    Here's that tan colour that doesn't seem to feature in the Kickstarter offer. I got in on the SEB 'two for forty quid delivered' yesterday.



    I have the original Trove in Emerald and Autumn so will probably go for the Navy. The other one will probably be a Christmas present for somebody.

    Green and Burgundy have been added to the initial colours for the Trove Swift. Maybe that tan will appear in time.

    Fingers crossed, that is my fav colour so far. The burgundy looks decent as well.

    On a related theme - has anyone purchased the Trove Tag? Thoughts?

  28. #428
    Have really enjoyed my V1 Trove in Cinnamon, but love the idea of the easy access tab, so just got in on the Kickstarter Trove 2.0 Swift campaign.

    Only 62 places left as of now.

    I'll probably go for black or navy.

    Wanted - Damasko DA38 or DC80 Green - not the black versions. Bell & Ross BR03-92 Nightlum

    I'm very tempted by the navy but will probably go for black when decision time comes. I'm far to boring to go for any of the brighter colours!

    not been on this thread for few days so missed this

    just got an email from the CEO as i emailed them last week about this pull tab

    his words were "your wish is our command" and linked me to the Trove 2.0 Kickstarter

    sadly missed the early bird £19! so went for the £25 early bird one

    first time using KS aswell :)

    So got the email that the Trove campaign is officially over - over 30k raised meaning pretty much all the colours unlocked. Also means time is nearing to choose a colour - I'm still totally undecided what to go for!

    Nice to see they absolutely smashed their target. Although I think I'm going to be ultra-boring and just choose black!

    I have the blue/orange at present so I might go crazy and get the purple :) I love the yellow but I wonder how dirty it will get.

    Did not really get on with the trove. Have been using a Bellroy leather note sleeve wallet. Not as slimline as some but I love it. It’s half the size of my Aspinal wallets and fits lots of money in.
    Quality is great.

    I have the same blue/orange. It got a bit dirty so thought conservative.

    But I'm bonkers so probably go with red, green or burgendy. Lol

    I didn't particularly like the difficulty accessing the pockets when I handled the original Trove, so hoping this new version will be better for that. My wallet that I've always come back to in the last few years (despite dabbling in other smaller/minimalist ones) is a Bellroy Hi-Line, but if I'm honest I still find it a little too bulky and big in size, plus the limited number of card sleeves on it seem like a waste for the size. If the Trove doesn't work out for me I'm tempted to 'upgrade' to the Note Sleeve simply for the additional carrying space it allows over the Hi-Line.

    What's wrong with keeping your notes in socks and cards in the undercrackers?

    I was once told that it was impossible to forge Gambian Dalasi because you would never be able to get the smell right.

    Briefly considered the navy but with a lack of the promised better quality pics, I decided to play it safe and went for black.

    Been using Travel blue wallet for years, and finally it started to give up. Searched for a replacement two years and couldn't find, because of they don't original wallets anymore. I wanted two features - wallet has to be slim and it must have a zippered pocket I could access without opening wallet. That's where I keep my credit card and bus tickets. And finally after two year hunting I found something that wasn't so slim as travel blue, but it had zippered outer pocket - packsafe.





    and this is Travel blue wallet.





    I don't care about RFID protection much, it actually adds more hassle, because of I have to take my bus ticket out of wallet. Thankfully my work card works in the wallet.

    I have gone for the purple Trove

  45. #445
    My green came through today! I like the colour and the tab works well, much smoother operation. Lets see how it goes in day to day over the coming week.

    Had my trove for a year exactly now, use it every day and love it. Still looks like new too. Wished I had it years ago - 5 cards, a bit of cash and it's so small and convenient means I take it with me (old wallet left at home often as it was too bulky) and hardly notice it's in my pocket.

    My black Trove 2.0 arrived at the end of last week - the experience so far's been a good one. You can hardly feel it's there in your pocket at all, although it does bulge out a bit (a combination of carrying it in the same pocket as my phone and snug trousers!). The pull tab works really well and it's very easy and accessible to reach your main cards. Retrieving cash from the other side of the elastic is a bit more fiddly, although I tend to use 'tap to pay' mostly these days so the cash is more for emergencies anyway (although I've had to check a few times to remind myself how much is there!). I've only had to retrieve a card from the main elastic pocket once so far and it worked fine. All-in-all a nice little product.

    Ok, having just bought Andy's old Trove (which looked pretty new by the way) I have one question. How long does it take before you stop panicking when you realise you don't have your old wallet in your back pocket?!

    At least two years, as I still find myself checking regularly. The size of the Trove means that it is comfortable in a front pocket which I greatly prefer.
