Wallets don’t have to be boring — and they also no longer have to be just wallets. Thanks to modern advancements and ingenuity, we’ve seen our fair share of EDC-friendly money carriers. And perhaps no brand has taken things quite as far as DANGO in terms of robustness and utility. Known for its useful and fun-to-use pocket gear, such as its 3-in-1 ADAPT phone case and its intuitive Titanium Carabiner & Shackle, the brand really gets the job done when it comes to its impressive range of USA-made wallets, which just got new additions that use high-strength ULTEM material.
Already utilized by DANGO in its writing pens and phone cases, ULTEM is a heat-resistant thermoplastic that’s incredibly durable and can be pinpointed by its translucent yellow color. Now, the material is being introduced to the T01 and M1 wallet models for the first time. Capable of holding around 8 to 10 cards comfortably (and as many as 12) inside the flexible DTEX pockets, the T01 horizontal tactical wallet is already sleek and lightweight thanks to its carbon fiber backplate, but gets some added resilience with the CNC-machined ULTEM chassis. A smoked silicone band on the outside allows you to carry some extra cash or important documents, while the addition of the 550 paracord lanyard makes this a great accompaniment when heading outdoors.
ULTEM chassis were also added to the vertical-oriented M1 Maverick and M1 Lite wallets. Slightly more minimal than the T01, the M1 Maverick maxes out at 10 cards but also benefits from the lightweight carbon fiber backplate. The DTEX pocket is held together with mil-spec stainless steel bolts and we also get the 550 paracord and smoked silicone cash band. As for the M1 Lite, it sports a CNC-machined aluminum rail system and can hold up to 13 cards overall inside of its DTEX bifold system. Along with the paracord and secret stash pocket for cash, the M1 Lite ULTEM is held together by a handy MT01 multi-tool clasp.
To get one of these slim and durable ULTEM wallets for yourself, head over to DANGO’s website, with prices ranging from $89 to $129.
