The traditional wallet made from leather has been in use for centuries, adapting to changes in fashion and being made from modern synthetic materials, but essentially remaining the same. There is of course the modern “man-bag” which can perform the same function – but for many the perceived slight on their manhood of owning such an article rules this out.

So, what if you´re looking for something different and fancy a change? Let me introduce you to the Tru Virtu Wallet Oyster Series. With a name like that it exudes honesty and trustworthiness – vital to the protector of all things monetary.

The Tru Virtu Wallet is a formed aluminium case that´ll hold your coins, cash, and credit cards. Measuring only 9.8cm x 6.8cm x 2.6cm, the Tru Virtu will fit snugly into your pocket, and as it´s made from aluminium it won´t feel like you´re carrying around a housebrick.

The Tru Virtu Wallet also offers two completely separate sections for cash and cards accessed by pressing the buttons on the front edge to open the relevant compartment. This has the added bonus of preventing coins falling out when you only want to get to your business cards.

The design is sturdy and will protect the contents from dust, dirt and moisture – though it´s not waterproof, so don´t try going swimming with it. It´ll also prevent RFID-scanning of the credit cards, a very 21st Century consideration. What´s RFID scanning I hear you ask? Well, RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification, and allows a suitable wireless scanner to read the account details from a chip on your credit card. With the advent of the digital thief it is possible under certain circumstances, with a suitably advanced scanner and if they´re close enough to extract these details. But with advances in encryption and how close they´d need to be, this is more of a marketing tool than being something of real concern.

The Tru Virtu Wallet Oyster Series has an anodised exterior available in black, blue, red, silver or taupe. So you should have no trouble in co-ordinating this with either the colours of your favourite football team or the colour of your eyes (see man-bag…).

Verdict
The wallet is dead, long-live the wallet… Is the Tru Virtu Wallet a worthy successor to the traditional wallet, or merely a pretender to the crown? Only time will tell… now where´s that multi-purpose man-bag got to, can never find that chapstick when it´s needed.
