Brevet Wallet

I had this idea of a way to keep my brevet card and receipts together without using a ziplock bag. Something that would look a little nicer. So I made up a prototype last night. The idea is there and now that I can see it and hold it I know what to change.

I plan to add a pen holder on the side and I think I figured out how to hide the final seam.

Randos, what do you think?

  • Nice work! I can’t really comment on its utility, as I’ve only ever done one populaire, rando-wise. But it sure looks nice, and seems like a real improvement over a ziplock.

    I think it is great and has potential. From my perspective, the wallet needs to be able to hold a brevet card (check), have a place for paper money and credit cards (check), a pen holder (check), AND a place for loose change (always a problem). Good work; I would buy one!

    Looks good but waterproof is a big PLUS for the ziplock. If you cane make it waterproof as well, you got a nice item in the works

      You are correct. That is something that is hard to beat with the ziploc bag. The next version will be made out of Xpac, which is a more technical fabric, and more water resistant than cotton duck. Between the waterproof zipper and a redesigned pocket for the brevet card, I think it’ll do pretty good in the rain. I’m also thinking about sweat if you carry it in your jersey pocket.

  • nice start! curious to see where you take this.

    for awhile i was using an eagle creek travel thing from the outdoor store. had room for brevet card, id, my old phone, pen, cash, credit card, etc. what i liked about it is that it would ride in my h-bar bag or in my carradice – and when i stopped the first thing i did was take it out and sling it around my neck. had all my essentials for convenience store runs and controls right with me…

    compressing that down into a jersey pocket sized item is a nice idea. adding a vapor or water barrier would be key. i have one of those little wallets that is supposed to be ‘sweat proof’ from an online cycling store – sadly its hardly sweat proof, and not even close to rain proof. everything in it gets damp from just riding around in my jersey.

  • ill take one as soon as yer happy with it!!!!
