RE:FORM Introduces Modern, Versatile Wallets
It’s more difficult to create something simple, well, than it is to pack something full of complex kitchen-sink features. That’s exactly what RE:FORM has excelled at here with the RE-01 and RE-02 wallets. Hailing from Germany, RE:FORM delivers a pair of refined wallets that look as great as they function, focusing on versatility in a small package, durability leading to sustainability, and minimalism without sacrificing functionality.
Both of these wallets start with RE:FORM’s custom RE:FINE material, a custom chlorosulfonated polyethylene synthetic rubber. It’s designed to be extremely resistant to chemicals, extreme temperatures, and UV light. It’s derived from military boats and sailing equipment that sit out on the waters, in the direct sun, for days, months, or years at a time. The contrasting tacks on the edges keep everything held together, and they even look great. These wallets are made to last a lifetime, and keeping products out of landfills is one of the best ways to promote a culture of sustainability.
The RE:01 is the more unique of this pair with its integrated sleeve. We’ve been using this sleeve for more than just coins, since most of us have eliminated coins from their daily lives. We’ve been hauling tracker tags (both Airtags and Tiles), small tools and knives, and even medications. We love that it stays ultra slim even when using the sleeve for a bit of gear.
The wallet also holds up to 6 cards, but we found 4 was a better fit when using the integrated coin sleeve. To top it all off, the RE:01 snaps shut with a pair of strong magnets, keeping your interior cards secure, but also allowing you quick access to any cards stored in the exterior card sleeve. It’s also a great fidget toy in a pinch.
The RE:02, while visually similar, is a bit closer to your classic slim wallet. RE:FORM eliminates the coin sleeve in favor of an extra card slot, bumping the capacity to 9 cards. We loved that even when running single cards in these slots that they still felt secure, and that nothing was going to slide out. Just like the RE:01, it snaps shut with two strong magnets, keeping your interior cards secure and the wallet small and slim.
Which RE:FORM offering is for you? That really depends on your needs, but we think the RE:01 is certainly the most unique option, and it really isn’t any larger or thicker than its card-focused sibling. The ability to carry tracker tags, meds, and other small items has become a bit invaluable during our testing. Especially since this adds virtually no extra size. If you tend to carry more cards – over 6 – then the RE:02 is probably a better fit for your pockets.
The RE:FORM RE:01 and RE:02 are available now at a special early bird price of $89 and $78 respectively.
