Minimalist Wallets

Lighten Up

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to lose the George Costanza wallet. You know, the one that acts as your junk drawer and has swelled to the size of carry-on luggage thanks to too many credit cards, old receipts and expired coupons. Zeroz has the perfect replacement: a minimalist wallet that’s slim, stylish and super efficient.

Designer Paul Westrick came up with the idea for these sleek card- and cash-carriers after a four-day bike ride. He had ditched his fat wallet for the ride and took only the bare essentials -- cash
and credit cards -- held together with a rubber band. After the ride, he started working on a refined version of his liberating rubber-band solution.

Today Paul’s zeroz wallets are made in Ohio with leather from Italy. They’re designed to hold just the important stuff: Your ID, debit card, credit card and maybe a photo or two of someone special. A cashStrap keeps bills or a single key secure. Three sizes are available. The extra-small size holds 2-4 cards, the small version holds 5-6 cards, and the large option holds 10 cards. Are you ready to lose the bulk and get slim with zeroz?

    Hi. It's Paul, the designer of zerOz. I am passionate about super slim wallets. We just don't need fat wallets anymore! I've created something for bag or backpack, front pocket or purse in a range of different styles to match how we live ... perfect for a night out or a long bike ride...all super skinny ... all super stylish.

    @Gwen: They vary in depth and can hold a different number of cards. The x-small holds 3, the small holds 5 and the medium holds 10.

    I recently purchased the 3-card holder red OM. I had read a review of the wallets in the local reader and headed downtown on the bike to investigate up-close. Paul was fantastic - great personality and so excited to be involved in something that he feels passionate about! It's rare to run into such an inspiring soul ~

    I liked the red and the 3-card, but I really wanted a cash-strap, so while I did errands downtown, Paul designed a custom model for me. It was ready by the time I was. I have been so happy with my Zeroz! I used to carry a 'pocketbook'-style wallet, but no one uses checks anymore, and, as implied in the video, you really DON'T need that much when you are out and about. The 3-card is perfect for my minimalist lifestyle. ID, money card, and health card. I keep my store reward cards in my reusable shopping bags, and the rest are not daily essentials.

    As we strive as a society to reduce our waste and dependency on nonrenewable resources, I believe that Zeroz is on the right track. I now have let this minimalist approach steep itself in everything else that I do.

It's important to us and our visitors to be doing business with people we trust, who have a passion, and a strong customer connection. Your first hand encounter helps us to know Paul and his work even better. Just to clarify for any visitors, the three card (X-Small) version we are carrying today does have a cash strap.

    Very beautiful indeed but.......your cash is outside the wallet where it can easily fall or be pulled out! Not good! Especially not good - in fact I don't think you could even use this - if you were carrying a lot of cash (like you pretty much don't use cards). Got a solution for that?

    @Pamela: hi .... so many people are not using cash so we wanted a super easy way to use cash just like a money clip but without the fat and bulk. it really does sit in there really nice ... if you're lucky to have cash stuff it big...works awesome. it also holds hotel room keys...you can even slip the cash under the outside card. thanks for asking!

    @Paul Westrick: I also have a zer0z, and have used the tab to hold a $20 bill inside with my cards. That works as my emergency cash...because I would rather use my debit card for everything.

    Garry! great question. trainable.....oh yeah .... you like many guys have accumulated too much stuff. me too. when you really look at what you use....it's really just a few cards. or just get an xs and use it for a great night out....a cool concert or travel on the metro! you'll be super happy...happy enough to levitate.

    I have a red ZerOz and I love it. I used to carry around a fat wallet and now I wonder WHY?! My friends all comment about how unique it is and always ask where I got it.

    The best part I like about it is that it fits in my front pocket or slips in my jacket. Also stacks nicely on your phone when you just want to sit your stuff on the table at a restaurant/bar. If you're in Cbus stop by the store for extra personal attention!

    Hi

    I am wondering, with the 10 card wallet can you safely put 5 cards and they not fall out?

    thanks

    love the idea!

  • Paul
    Paul – Special Guest
    5/17/2011 2:28 PM

    nice question. :) well if you're really only using around 5 cards, id get a slimmer small zerOz. if you think you'll use 7-10 cards, no problem .. a zerOz comes loaded with note cards and can fill any void. Honestly most people have no problem having enough cards. now the coolest move to make is to have your 10 card zerOz for day to day...and a slick metallic XS zerOz for a summer night out. :)

    I bought one for my fat-walleted husband for Xmas. He isn't quite ready to give up the George Constanza m.o., so I hijacked his zerOz and I love it. It helped me get my cards organized in my purse and now it's easier than ever to switch purses or go purse-less. WooHoo! Thanks Paul!

    deb ..... you're not the first to hijack or "borrow" a zerOz. some guys really really really have trouble letting go! security blanket :) who knows..... At zerOz, we have fat leather chairs in our retail space for guys to breathe and relax, recline and ask themselves, as they lean to the left propped up by their George Castanza wallet... and ask the big question in life: "do i need to carry this ridiculous fat clod around in my pocket everyday?" usually it's NO ..... but lucky you.

    hey thanks jeffrey. I think women would just not believe that even us guys are actually changing out our wallets per occasion! shhh ... seriously, to go for a nice dinner, a client meeting, drinks, a concert, or sports event, to slim down even further from any wallet...even a medium zerOz....it is a totally pulled together slick feeling to have just what we need and not weigh ourselves down with unwanted wallet stuffings. front pocket for guys...a small clutch for women...we'll match up how you want to live as we strive to go lighter.

    lori .. good question. so obvious and I should have shared more. They are all made from awesome, full grain, leather we bring in from Italy. The black is more matte while the blue gray zerOz has a metallic finish. The white is a super beautiful pearlescent which actually makes it very very durable. The base material that the cashStrap locks into is recycled leather from the shoe industry and formed into sheets and die-cut to our specs. The cashStrap is also super durable and grippy to hold your cash or hotel room key if traveling. Thanks.

    @Stacey Schwingle: we should have a cork zerOz by next year :) but the base will still be of recycled leather from the show industry scraps. we use 25% or less leather of a typical leather wallet so we're doing pretty darn good :) we may use a metal aluminium base but these special zerOz will be more expensive.

    I've been using a "small wallet" similar to this for years. It's made by another company and if it ever wears out, I'll get one of these.

    I never carry a purse -- makes my shoulders hurt to see women carrying around those huge bags. Instead, I just slip my small wallet in my pocket with the essentials: a fell bills, one or two credit cards, drivers license, metro card. That's it. Everything I need.
