My New Favorite Wallet
I’ve been through all sorts of wallets and money clips, and I’m really picky. I want to make sure what I’m using is functional, but also as minimal as possible. That’s why we brought on the HuMn carbon fiber wallet, my new favorite! It’s a little hard to grasp from looking at pictures, but watch the video on the product page (we’ll put one together soon as well) to get a true understanding of how awesome it really is.
We’ve partnered with the folks at Composites World to bring you weekly updates in the more technical world of carbon fiber. Here’s what’s new this week:
