Nice! Any chance you could publish some construction notes!? I have a bunch of little offcuts left over from making my tarp... and I'd LOVE to make one for myself! What a neat (if a little geeky, you have to admit it) project!

Well executed! on 05/14/2010 07:27:30 MDT Print View

Very nice! I love the size of my All-Ett wallet but the Spinnaker fabric has blown out in the corners after one year. Is that a sticker or heat transfer graphic in the corner? Looks great.

I like the design. I wonder how well it will hold up.

It should hold up pretty well. CN9K.5 is tough stuff. It weighs 80.5g per meter 2 which is roughly 3oz/yd. That's twice the weight of the durable cuben packs being made (ie. Zpacks).

Cuben wallet info on 05/15/2010 00:54:45 MDT Print View

the size of this wallet was modify from a Prada wallet!
As the wallet on market was using either leather or 600D so it much thicker then this Cuben cloth.
i do make 2 other prototype before get this final version.

Putting it to gether is easy by using double side tape. but stitching it is little bit hard as the surface of the cuben is very slippy specially stitching the edge of the wallet as layer overlapping it create a thickness around 4mm., so is little bit hard to controll well.

tailoring it and stick it togeher is not take time but stitching it nicely is a problem and take time, so i do not know shall i put it on market.

from the look people will feel like you are using a paper wallet!! [specially my wife!]
But the actually hand feeling is like using a bullet proof plastic bag! super light weight and very thin!

this materail actually for sail making. so limited product can be produce if i decide to launch this product. as North Sail purchase the Cuben Corp, so Cuben Corp wont sell any sail grade cuben to anybody!

Cheers
J

Coins is too heavy mate joking;p !

i am living in Hong Kong, Hong Kong is using less coins now as they have a Cash card like the UK oyster card system using this card can do purchasing in 7-11 or paying fees on transport. So we are using less coin now. Therefore i didn't put any extra coin pouch in the wallet.

Lawson,

I talked to North Sail when they first bought Cuben. What they told me was that North Sail will sell to sailmakers only and Cuben Corp will sell the rest of the world that is using Cuben for other than sails.

So are you selling these, or just displaying your creation- not bad, by the way. Sam.

I'd be interested in one! IF you were to sell some, is it possible to give a ballpark figure on price?
