Missing the point of ultralight wallets.
There's also this: http://goo.gl/Dmq3P, and http://goo.gl/bT3Ix, and http://goo.gl/oNupX. Probably a dozen others. That said, I'm really missing the point of any of these wallets. Once ...

If you can wait a few months...
GoLite is refreshing their sleeping bag line. Their 3-season (20 degree) 800 fill bag runs for $200 right now (though they're sold out). Not sure what the pricing on the new bags will be, but...
