In partnership with Ridge.
We had no idea we needed the Ridge Wallet until we saw it – now multiple TQE editors can’t live without it. As Steve Jobs once famously said, “People don't know what they want until you show it to them.” The Ridge has done just that – and this month, the brand is celebrating 10 years (!!) of quality, minimalist everyday essentials.
It all started in 2013 when father and son duo Daniel and Paul Kane launched The Ridge on Kickstarter. Their goal was to streamline their essentials into one well-constructed, compact front-pocket wallet. To say it’s been a hit would be an understatement – over 3 million people have bought The Ridge Wallet, which has earned over 50,000 five-star reviews and praise from outlets like Gear Patrol and GQ. Plus, The Ridge has become so popular that it’s rolled out a suite of other everyday essentials, like keycases, watches and rings.
In celebration, The Ridge’s entire site is 20% off right now (with up to 40% off select kits). Plus, the brand has released a 10 Year Anniversary Wallet, which is a nod to ‘The Tank,’ Ridge’s OG wallet (with a few tweaks that make it sleeker and safer than ever). It’s made from premium metals that block RFID to prevent wireless theft and are scratch resistant, boasts a slim profile (yet holds 1-12 cards without stretching), and has an updated money clip. An everyday essential, it also has a lifetime warranty.
If you can’t already tell, we’re big fans of The Ridge Wallet – here are our top 5 reasons why:
1. Its Efficient Design
The Ridge Wallet is a minimalist’s dream. Its patented dual-track design means it holds anywhere from 1-12 cards while still maintaining its shape. Wave goodbye to overstuffed pockets, gym-bag-digging, and lugging around months-old receipts. This wallet is made for just the necessities.
2. Top Notch Aesthetics
In addition to neutral colorways, Ridge offers an extensive number of different colors and patterns to choose from (check out this newly released 24-karat gold edition!). Whether you’re looking for your wallet to blend in or make a statement, the brand has a design catered to you. Plus, Ridge allows you to engrave your wallet at no extra charge.
3. It's Made For Life
These premium materials are designed to last a lifetime. The brand guarantees it’s the last wallet you’ll ever have to buy – so much so that you’ll earn a lifetime guarantee on The Wallet, plus every other Ridge product.
4. It's Earned Rave Reviews from GQ, Men's Health, Gear Patrol & Over 2 Million Happy Customers
Ridge boasts over 2 million customers and over 50,000+ 5-star reviews, and testimonials like “I should’ve switched sooner.” We're pretty confident you'll love it, too.
5. You Can Try It Risk-Free
