Wayfinder DAYBREAKER Bifold Wallet – $59
A wallet is a staple gift for Father’s Day and, truth be told, you just won’t find many better than the DAYBREAKER Bifold Wallet from Wayfinder ($59) anywhere on the market. If you’ve been looking at your dad’s bulky wallet for months now and decided he’s in need of a minimalist overhaul, this is the ideal wallet for the job. It is capable of holding multiple boarding passes, currency from all over the world, and up to an impressive 16 cards. Boasting a 100% no sew, fully bonded / RF welded construction for a contemporary, no-nonsense, and refined aesthetic, we’re loving this bifold here at Coolector HQ.
It is crafted from a hydrophobic material which means water beads off easily. If it does get wet, it will not stay wet so it will not let your dad down wherever his post Father’s Day adventures take him. It resists stretching over time and if you carry fewer items over time, these items will still stay put and will not fall out easily. Unlike other stiff, structured, and rigid wallets out there, Wayfinder’s rounded corners and bendable soft material will reduce “x-ray” wear patterns on apparel and keep pocket bulge to a minimum.
