Dosh. Hailing from the design hub of Surry Hills, Sydney; Dosh has done everything not in the textbook when it comes to creating a wallet. In fact, they've done the complete opposite by using high-tech materials, clever wallet innovation and future thinking design. When we sat down with our beers and began to have a look at this wallet (the Dosh Luxe) we thought to ourselves, well this is unique. And unique it is. The first difference we noticed right from the get-go was its plastic design. Not any old plastic mind you, Dosh call it "Elastollan", a water-resistant, highly durable advanced polymer that is nice on touch and very light. These surely aren't some cheap import if you're wondering as quite a bit of R&D went into this wallet. Dosh pride themselves on creating functional, go-anywhere innovative wallets for the modern man. They've achieved this by not including a coin section, inserting a stainless steel robust money clip and creating a wallet that seems like it could survive many late nights out. The polymer construction has removed the need to worry about stitching coming undone as Dosh have created their entirely own patented design process. This is made possible by molding, bonding and fusing a combination of flexible and semi-flexible materials. You've already guessed right that the amount of science behind this wallet is impressive to say the very least. NASA would be proud. Opening up, we are met with a money clip and six credit card size 'holster' slots. We'll also mention that the inside finishing is a smoother, matte finish polymer and smooth to touch. When we inserted some cards we noticed something quite interesting occur but we don't know if it's a design feature. Upon inserting a card into a slot we noticed a firm jarring of the card. In other words, it fit in nice and snug which reassured us that the cards won't fall out. Phew, this could of been a deal breaker. The money clip is a cool feature which nicely fans your cash. This wallet is suited to US, Australian and British currency as the wallet is quite slim height wise. Cash sat nicely under the clip which isn't of a cheap looking metal. The clip itself is quite a thick, stainless steel which didn't easily bend even with quite a lot of pressure applied. Thickness and size is very conservative and perfect for the traveler or someone who likes to carry light. If you like coins, this wallet ain't going to be your friend but if you have up to six cards and carry minimal cash, this is a great wallet that will force you to keep your wallet a healthy size. Dosh even wants you use the clear box that comes with the packaging as a coin container. No excuses now. In the hip pocket it was comfortable due to its slimness in both width, girth and length. It was also easy to recover from a pocket due to the textured pattern. It's almost as if they've thought it all through?! On the back pocket it was just as easy to pull out and purchase more beer with, which we did. It's good to see when a company such as Dosh take a risk on design, especially such an intimate everyday item like a wallet. They not only created an alternative to the traditional styles but they created a whole new innovation in the process. Style, build quality, functionality and innovation are all here in one nice package. You could run over this thing with a car, drop it off a mountain, throw it out of a plane or lose it at sea and chances are it'll still work just like the day you bought it. Sick of leather wallets? Need a wallet that won't die easy? Want something that laughs in the face of water? Get a Dosh.
