After riding a self-proclaimed “Frankenbike” around the streets of
San Francisco for several years, Mike O’Neill designed a new take on
the stodgy old “Costanza” wallet. His plastic wallet—called the Jimi—is
one that you can throw in your bike jersey, or your pants, as it’s slim
And if you get a bit frisky and sweat through your shirt, your cash will not get soggy.
O’Neill says to think of the Jimi as a more robust, stylish and
greener version of the ubiquitous snack-sized Ziploc bag. Good to stash
a license, credit cards, and a little cash, just the essentials and
Indeed, the company slogan is “The Wallet for
People Who Hate Wallets.” It’s about 9/16 of an inch thick and a smidge
taller than a credit card. There’s an integrated money clip, which is
removable for times when you only want to bring cash.
Bonus: The Jimi wallet is also a recycled/recyclable product that’s made in the USA and sold in bike stores around the country.
Cost is $14.95.
