Coins are not easy or enjoyable to carry around in your pocket. However, if we ever want to pay with actual dollar bills, the clanging around as we go about our day feels unavoidable — that is, until the coins inadvertently (and inevitably) fall out of our pockets. Fortunately, there happens to be another solution that doesn’t require a separate small change pouch altogether. It comes from RE:FORM, a German-based pocket essentials outfit specializing in well-engineered wallet solutions. The brand’s RE:01 is a wallet that lets you bring around those pesky coins so that you have them when you need them and forget they’re even there when you don’t.
Weighing just over 1oz, the RE:01 is the brand’s flagship wallet with a built-in coin sleeve that holds up to 6 cards and some folded bills, and also has a pocket on the opposite side specifically for small loose items like coins, AirTag chips, and keys. The compartment stays shut until you pinch the sides to open it up. Sporting a slim and sleek minimalist design (only 1mm thin when open), the wallet removes any visible branding from the outside and stays folded thanks to the magnetic closure.
Incredibly tough and rugged, the RE:01 utilizes the brand’s proprietary RE:FINE material, which is a custom chlorosulfonated polyethylene synthetic rubber derived from military boats and sailing equipment. It’s 10 times more durable than leather, especially when it comes to extreme temperatures, UV light, and chemicals. The wallet also benefits from welded construction rather than sewn seams, which then has its high-stress areas reinforced by bar tracks used in climbing gear.
If you’ve been on the lookout for the perfect minimalist wallet then give the RE:01 coin sleeve a shot (there’s also the RE:02 Card Holder for those who want room for more cards). It’s priced at $96 from RE:FORM’s website.
