REVIEW: Totinit Vault Wallet – The Low Cost High Performance Wallet

The Totinit Vault Wallet, an economical choice for many while boasting a similar style to the Ridge Wallet, at only $35 Canadian, there’s not much that will compete with the feature set for the value it provides.

The Totinit Vault Wallet is a piece I’ve been using for a couple of weeks now. I was going to write this earlier, but I wanted a bit of extra time to ensure I didn’t miss anything in this review! I very much enjoyed this wallet, though not as luxurious or feature packed as some of the wallets I’ve reviewed recently, the price point is hard to beat! This wallet covers all the bases as far as functionality goes, while still being RFID protected to keep your information secure while you’re on the go!

Card Capacity

Overall the Totinit Vault Wallet does not disappoint when it comes to capacity. Coming in similar to its closest mainstream comparison in the Ridge Wallet, the Vault holds up to 12 Cards, though I really put it to its limit while testing it. I managed to get 12 cards, 8 business cards, and 10 folded bills into a combination of the elastic and metal cardholder, and the attached money clip. All that content being considered, the wallet kept a fairly minimalist form factor and didn’t disappoint me in the slightest.

Size & Bulk

The Vault is what I would consider a front pocket friendly wallet in its truest form. The wallet is roughly 3 inches tall, by about 2 inches wide. An extremely small form factor. Even when stuffed full, I had a hard time making the wallet more than about an inch thick, including the attached money clip. If you’re looking for something minimal and easy to fit in your pocket, they is a great option to consider.

Card Grip

Every elastic/metal based cardholder I’ve used has had excellent card grip, and the Totinit Vault is no exception. I must say though that the textured finish of the Totinit wallet makes it significantly easier to grip and hold than the Ridge Wallet with a glossy finish.

Ease of Access

This I find to be a pro and a con for the Totinit Wallet, the same as I did for the Ridge wallet. While the cutout on the backside for pressing into to expose your cards is handy for getting to them, the fact that there isn’t a mechanism for fanning the cards can make it a bit tricky to grab something from the middle of the stack when you need it. Overall though I would say its fairly convenient to access quickly if you organize your cards in the right order!

Additional Functionality

The Totinit Vault wallet brings some functional features in its sleek figure, with RFID protection to keep your information safe while you’re on the go, and an insane capacity on its money clip attachment. I was able to get 10 tri-folded bills into the money clip, and I didn’t feel that it was even close to capacity, though as we know, I like to overstuff things to see what their limits really are.

Quality of Materials

The Totinit Vault Wallet has a great feeling textured coating on the side plates for the wallet, making it easy to grip and very sturdy feeling. The money clip has a good clean finish on the metal, making for a durable piece that won’t scratch up easily as you use it, and lastly, unfortunately I didn’t feel the elastic was of the same quality as some of the other competitors I’ve used, the Totinit wallet is 1/3 of the price of the last similar wallet I reviewed, so I don’t have much issue with this overall.

Price/Value

The Totinit Vault Wallet really hits a home run when it comes to price! This wallet comes in at an easy to swallow $35 Canadian, making it an affordable option for the mass consumer, rather than exclusively to the wallet aficionado like myself. At this price point, it’s worth jumping on without much worry for the few little things that may not be there compared to some of the more expensive wallets we’ve looked at.

Final Notes:

The Totinit Vault Wallet may not be the most feature packed wallet we’ve reviewed, or the most beautiful, but it is easily the best value for the everyday consumer. At only $35 this simple and sleek cardholder will hold everything you need for day to day use, and the attached money clip will keep your cash and business cards nice and secure while you’re on the move.

I give the Totinit Vault Wallet an overall score of 7.8/10
