Minimalist Rejoice, Recycled Firefighter Wallet Worthy to Carry

In the everyday carry community, less is more. Based on the idea of being prepared, but not burdened down. I recently had the opportunity to receive a new wallet that I gladly have added to my carry collection.

Sergeants wallet, Recycled Firefighter

Recycled Firefighter wallets are, well just what they sound like. A minimalist wallet made out of recycled decommissioned firehose, yet they are so much more.

I had been following them on Instagram for a while, and their products intrigued me. How would a firehose made into a wallet be useful? I wondered and had to find out for myself.

I reached out to the creator of the Recycled Firefighter wallets Jake, and he sent me one to try out. When I received it, I could tell even by simply the packaging that they stood behind their brand. Inside the stamped brown envelope I found a camouflage Sergeant’s wallet crafted out of a firehose as well as a bright orange one.

Okay, I know what your thinking, really a firehose? Exactly and simply put it is awesome.

Gone were the days of a bulky wallet in my back pocket. No more lower back pain or a sore bum because of the unnecessary bulk.

I no longer felt compelled to carry unnecessary credit cards (should not carry any but that is a whole other blog post series). That and there is only recycled firefighter walletroom for about four to six credit cards, or my case three cards and two id’s (#edc always carry two id’s).

There is an elastic strap on the back of the wallet which serves perfectly as a money clip. With the cards and cash tucked away neatly in the wallet, it was time to test it out.

I carried the wallet both in my back pocket and in front with no issues.

Whether you are a frequent traveler looking for an inconspicuous wallet to carry in your front pocket. Perhaps you are someone always prepared, yet never weighed down. Or simply an everyday user looking for a wallet that not only serves its purpose but also a better good. A portion of your order is given to the burn care unit at their local Kosair Children’s Hospital. Then the Recycled Firefighter wallet is for you.

But wait they don’t stop there! They are continually adding to the line of wallets along with notebook cases, bags, belts and more. All the items are carrying the Recycled Firefighter brand and made from decommissioned firehose.

I love the front pocket wallet so much that it has become an everyday carry item for me. Recycled Firefighter has been generous enough that I will be giving away a front pocket wallet to one lucky reader of my blog. All you have to do it enter to win below and good luck!
