Vanguard Billfold Wallets

    • Thin, light, full-featured front pocket wallets
    • High-performance racing sailcloth
    • Repurposed, 100% vegan material
    • Tough and durable design
    • Water resistant, so light it floats


    The Vanguard Wallet lets you take a lightweight mindset to your everyday life. This billfold wallet is as slim as two credit cards and light as three pieces of printer paper. Unfolded US bills go in the cash pocket and there’s lots of room for cards with two ID window card slots and two hidden card slots. Fits seamlessly in your front pocket for EDC and travel. When the Minimalist is just too small, the Vanguard is the perfect choice.

    Vanguard is offered in a choice of two different materials: recycled sailcloth or X-Pac® LiteSkin®. 

    The unique sailcloth used to make these wallets revolutionized the performance of racing boats like those in America’s Cup. With a higher tensile strength than steel, it’s remarkably durable due to an inner matrix of carbon fiber, Pentex, or polyester. These are some of the lightest, toughest, and most resilient fibers in the world due to a high strength to weight ratio and high modulus of elasticity.

    The sailcloth material comes from scrap, blemished, or discontinued stock that would otherwise end up in a landfill. It’s repurposed to make cool 100% vegan wallets tough enough to earn a lifetime warranty. They are water resistant and so light, they float.

    LiteSkin is an eye-catching, material with a more modern, urban aesthetic. It's an opaque, abrasion-resistant laminate with a non-woven polyester face and 70D nylon ripstop backing. These composite laminates were originally developed for lightweight sails with increased durability. Ultralight, cool looks, and tough too.

    If you find most wallets cumbersome, check out the slim, simple Minimalist Card Holder Wallets. If you’re looking for a thinner, lighter, yet durable full-featured wallet, the Vanguard is just right for you. You’ll be the talk of the cash register.

    1. Still Perfect for my Needs After a Year of Use  star rating

      Posted by MNron on 4th Aug 2019

      I've been using this as my EDC wallet for a year now, and I love it. I carry from 9 to 12 cards of various thicknesses and 4-7 bills, so this is perfect for my needs. It's lightweight and barely makes a lump in my pocket. It seems like it will last for many years, too. My only suggestion for improvement: change the ID window slots so it's easier for someone to see the ID card without having to pull it out of the slot.
