Why bother with the muss and fuss of multiple compartments that regular wallets have when you can get rid of all those and still have a completely usable wallet? I'm talking about the Cinch.

If you live by the rules of minimalism but haven't found a wallet that agrees with your principles, then look no further. The Cinch is a true bare bones wallet that's made up of an oak backbone, a stretchy black band, and nothing more.

Put your credit cards, cash, business cards, and slips of paper with phone numbers on them onto the backbone and pull the black elastic band over everything to keep them in place. It doesn't have any extra padding whatsoever so you don't have to worry about walking around with one butt cheek larger than the other (it's more common than you think.)

If that's not good enough for you, then here's the best part: there's a version of the Cinch that comes with a Stainless Steel backbone. Aside from looking doubly cool, it also doubles as a bottle opener.

Cinch It: $30
