Never misplace your cards and cash again with Ekster Wallets 2.0, the ultra slim and trackable wallets. Available in two models, these trackable wallets offer RFID blocking and a fast card access experience. Simply press the trigger on the wallet and watch as your cards are instantly displayed in the staggered order of your choice. Both the Parliament and the Senate models are available in 4 types of leather: Classic Brown, Steel Blue, Nappa Black, Roma Cognac. The Parliament offers room for 10+ cards and the Senate for 7+. They both come with RFID/NFC protection for 6 cards, and tracking functionality powered by the TrackR Crowd-GPS Network. Using the TrackR app you can now always locate your wallet and ring it when lost. They are solar charged, meaning no low battery and no wires!
Ekster® Wallets – Ultra Slim Trackable Wallets
300 is not enough. It's not slim. It's just cheap and crappy for the price I paid through the crowdfunding it should have been 30$ but it was 100+. Stick a Slim Tile in a regular RFID blocking wallet. No one uses Trakr. Plastic internals are poor quality. Dude it sucks.
I got three parliaments through their original crowd funded offer. They are terrible. The action is unreliable and one broke after using it once loading the cards (4 cards) and I had to open it and fix it. Same problem with the tracker button. Tracker sucks too. Huge ripoff.
If you live in Canada DO NOT buy this product. I joined the Kickstarter campaign because I loved the idea. After waiting for months and reading the product updates I got a note that my wallet was being shipped. After it didn't arrive I contacted the courier. The phone rang and rang with no answer despite multiple attempts at different times of day. Then I contacted Ekster. Weeks went by before Ekster responded saying they do not take responsibility for their fulfillment partner. I asked for a phone number or some way to contact them. Nothing. It was supposed to arrive in October 2016 and it is now January 2017. Ekster no longer responds. Really disappointing both in terms of customer service for a start up, and loyalty to initial supporters.
I was one of the patient backers that stayed in the background to watch this all unfold. Just received my wallet and can honestly say that this it the best Kickstarter campaign I’ve ever backed! The communication was 100% transparent and the creators really went the extra mile for their backers. The product is exactly hat they promised. I’ve used it for about a week now and have had no problems so far! Good job Ekster!
I got mine a month ago and I am not impressed at all. The blue leather marks up very easily. The tracker feature is kinda cool except for the fact that you always have to have your bluetooth on. The card eject only works right 2 out of five times. Also there is no cover to hold your cards in the slot. There is rubber lining the card slot that is supposed to hold your cards in but it doesnt. And if you take a card out, all 4 of your other cards will just fall out of the thing. Definitely not worth $125.
I have to agree with @brunopastor:disqus below. I backed them in Kickstarter and got a Parliament, the bigger model. The card ejection system stopped working after a few days and I'm contacting them for a replacement. But here's my thoughts. The good things first: 1) Mine is black and it looks gorgeous. Just out of the box the logo on the cash strap had already put a dent the internal side of the lid. Not too bad though, as it's the internal side. 2) I ejecting cards without exposing other items, like ID, cash, business cards, etc... is makes it safer where I live. 3) The strap is a good solution for quick access to frequently used items, like my garage's key card. 4) The ejection system is stylish, but look at the "ugly" section below for a unforgivable issue (in my opinion) 5) Setting up the tracker was very straightforward and the instructions in Ekster's website are very clear. The bad: 1) The card eject system is cool (when it works), but it can hold only 4 credit cards, instead of 5 as announced. If I put the 5th in there the spring is not strong enough to eject them all. I had to shake it quite hard to get them out. 2) The IDs where I live are paper (I know, shameful...) and there's not a convenient place to put it. Other wallets have that transparent plastic compartment that I keep my ID. I'll probably find a plastic holder for my ID and keep it in the cash compartment. 3) After adding the items i listed above, the lid won't fully close when you leave the wallet on a desk, for example. Actually it'll start 45 degrees open if I add a few cash bills to the internal strap. The ugly (besides it stopped working after a few days) 1) It's a much bulkier than I expected and pictures in the campaign suggested. Bulkier than my current wallet with the same items on it, except the tracker. After adding a few bills, a few spare business cards and my health insurance card on the internal part of the lid it got too bulky for my front pocket, where I usually carry my wallet. Any orthopedist or chiropractor would say it's too bulky for the back pocket of your pants unless I take it out before sitting down. Final thoughts: If they replace my broken one, It won't become my daily wallet and I'll save it for special occasions (weddings, formal events, etc...) when I wear a jacket and put it in the jacket's pocket. These are the occasions I tend to lose my wallet or phone anyways, not in my daily home-office-grocery-home routine. Value wise, I'm not sure I'd spend $109 on this wallet. Design and quality wise it's nice, but not *that* nicer than other wallets I've had. Having a tracker is cool, but probably it's valuable only if you're the type who misplaces things quite frequently.
Big waste of money. Save yourself the trouble and buy a regular wallet. The parliament may be able to hold 12 cards but you would be a fool to try. I have 5 in the slot and two in the side sleeve and the wallet won't close. It gets worse, if you carry cash you're in even more trouble. The tracker button is activated when you push down on the center of the wallet. Simply folding the wallet and placing in my pocket sets off the alarm. I'm now forced to carry in hand like a woman's purse. Ridiculous! I've requested a full refund and Ekster simply won't comply without an actual defect. So I have a wallet that I cannot fold and place in pocket and that's not a defect?
This is amazing! I hadn't come across this gadget till I saw The Gadget Flow's post on Facebook. The pictures on their Indiegogo page look really good. Might buy it soon :)
