Don’t Be George Costanza – Get The Quick Draw Dash Wallet

The Dash Wallet is the anti-George Costanza wallet. One of the funnier moments in television sitcom history is the Seinfeld episode where the lovable curmudgeon George Costanza becomes overly defensive about his super sized wallet. George stubbornly refuses to reduce the size of his wallet even though it is causing terrible backaches. His solution, instead, is to stick a wad of napkins in his other pocket to even himself out. The episode ends with George’s wallet exploding as he tries to push it shut. The contents fly all over the streets of New York City.

This Seinfeld episode is funny because it is, so true. We sometimes insist on making our lives more uncomfortable and troublesome than it needs to be simply because we carry too much stuff in our wallets. The result is uncomfortable sitting position, it looks terrible, and it takes too long to find what you need. The Dash Wallet offers a simple, convenient, and inexpensive solution. It is much thinner and smaller than the traditional wallet and is easy too carry. You can slip it into back pocket, front pocket, shirt pocket, or practically anywhere.

Steve Elliot stumbled upon the idea for the wallet when his dog ate his old wallet. Elliot adopted a streamlined approach in designing the Dash Wallet. It provides the basic features of a money clip with a card sleeve in an attractive and sleek package. Its minimal size and design makes it possible to carry your essential items: important cards, ID, and cash. This relieves you of the burden of carrying around a lot of things that you don’t need.

The Dash Wallet provides convenience as well as comfort.

The coolest thing about the Dash Wallet is the quick-draw department that makes it possible to swipe one of your cards without completely removing it from the wallet.
 Simply slip the card out enough to expose the magnetic strip. The quick-draw compartment is a convenient, time saving feature. It also provides more security because it eliminates the risk of leaving a card behind or misplacing it once you have swiped it.

    WOW, this slick little dude cleaned house and no one seemed to see it coming.

    He made a kick model of a minimal wallet, sewed up a mockup, created a well made video to make his pitch with cute little Asian boy-toy looks and has laughed all the way to the bank.

    His wallet was funded by three separate crowd funding programs at the same time with the exact same presentation: Kickstarter to the tune of $64,069; Indigo for $12,859; and finally Fundfeed for another $52,532. A total of $129,460! Then he has a cheap production of his great wallet made and sent to folks as their backing rewards. If you check on Kickstarter folks are complaining that it is so cheap that it starts failing in various ways, the color bleeds, the stitching comes undone, the fabric stretches and quickly looses its shape.

    Then he has the balls to thank everyone for their feedback on his shoddy product and promises that everything that he has learned will be used to improve the great wallet scam 2.0. And he has been funded with a second Kickstarter project to $76,020. And if you check out the comments, he didn’t learn anything, he turned out just as crappy a wallet the second go around as the first. That’s a grand total of $205,480 of backer funding for a crap wallet. He probably used no more than $50,000 to provide the sub-par pledge rewards for all the crowd funding programs and has walked away from it all with $150,000+ in his pocket. Not a bad take for minimal work over a years time.

    I just received this product, it took about a week to get to Toronto and I got to say this is one of the Coolest idea’s I have ever seen. So simple and it fits in my pocket like a gem, perfect for a night out or anytime. I bought the leather wallet design just for added durability. So far it has been fantastic! Thanks a lot for I was kind of worried buying online, but it is now in my pocket and for me it is a Great purchase!
