This thing is perfect! I got tired of having a bulky wallet to carry a few credit/debit cards and driver's license (and a little cash), so I got some sturdy rubber bands and used them to clip all my cards together. But, didn't look so hot and the rubber bands would break over time. I looked at the slim wallets, but didn't make me happy. Then I saw this thing! I took the plunge and bought it and wow! PERFECT! It's a lot thinner than the photo suggests, about as thin as a sturdy rubber band. Its got the silicone on the inside, to keep my cards all together.
So here is my deal:
- I use it to bundle 6 cards: 4 credit/debit cards, driver's license, blood donor card
- I fold my cash and sandwich it in between the cards, along with my vehicle registration card.
Overall, I totally recommend this product... so sleek, minimalist, and modern
I've owned about 3 different types of minimalist type wallets. Unfortunately, none of them compare to this one! It's simple and functions as advertised. I currently have my ID, 2 debit cards and a Bluetooth Tile Tracker. It sits comfortably in my front pocket. I like how the band's have a rubber coating on the inner lining to grip the contents. It provides me peace of mind.
My girlfriend for a long time has used rubber bands to keep all the items in her pocket organized, this took that idea and formalized it with low impact and high durability. I bought this two years ago and she still uses it today. Great investment, nice and tight hold, just get it!
I have always loved carrying a wallet...I've collected several different styles over the years but have never found one that I really LOVED...until now. I've had the X-Band for six months now and it's still holding strong. I can carry everything I'll ever need without the bulk of all the materials required to hold a standard bifold together. Trying to carry too many bills can cause bulk in the front pocket which is never fun but if you don't carry much cash, and I don't, this is for you.
I ordered a second one just in case I need it in the future.
For awhile I've used a front pocket wallet to keep the bulk off my backside. The wallet I had was great but it was heavy and didn't handle cash well.
The XBand is very light and I've had to check a number of times to make sure I was carrying it. The trick to the cash is to simply flip your bills in half and use only one of the bands to hold them. That way you don't have to fold your bills in fourths
Having a lot of back problems, I thought that I should find an alternative to carrying around a wallet in my back pocket all day. I saw all of these cool money bands/clips on Kickstarter, but they were all in the $20-$40 range. In my opinion, that's way too much for a couple elastic bands.
Enter the Xband.
I love this thing. It's only as big as the amount of cards you have in it. I've had it for about 3 months and it's holding up perfectly. Absolutely no permanent stretching in the elastic or any other visible wear that you can see. I'm confident this will last for the foreseeable future, and that's with it getting battered around in my pockets all day, every day
I ordered the Xband on this past Thursday night. It is now Monday and it is in my hands! The Xband shipped from Oregon and I am in NJ. That, to me, is very fast service! I'm looking forward to using this as a wallet replacement as it seems extremely simple and efficient to use. When I look at it I think it's a fancy rubber band but I wouldn't want to use a rubber band to hold my cards or my cash. This does the job and for $8.99 including extremely fast shipping it's a great idea and well worth it!
