Woven from carbon fiber sailcloth, the same material used in racing yacht sails, this is the wallet that withstands a gale force wind or the torrents of a dishwasher. The wallet's carbon fiber threads are 5X stronger than steel, yet 80% lighter, and are encased in a flexible resin that's impervious to water....
I wish someone would have told me that I was supposed to be throwing my wallet in with the pots and pans or flying it from the mast of my yacht.
I wish even more that someone would explain to me why my wallet needs to be able withstand "gale force winds".
PS--Obviously I am not the only one to tilt my head in wonder at this wallet in the dishwasher phenomenon--between the time that I put this in my blog folder for a future post and today--they changed the ad to this:
The Indestructible Wallet.
This is the wallet that's 5X stronger than steel, yet 80% lighter. Woven from carbon fiber, the same durable material used in racing yacht sails, the resilient wallet will never stretch, fade, or develop cracks like a leather billfold. The carbon fiber threads are encased in a flexible resin that's impervious to water and the wallet is sewn using triple-step zigzag stitching to provide additional strength at the seams and prevent unraveling. Despite its uncompromised strength, that wallet has a 1/4"-thin, pliable construction that ensures comfortable storage in a pocket. The wallet has a full-size bill pocket and six credit card slots. 4 3/4" L x 3 1/2" W x 1/4" H. (1 1/4 oz.)
