We’ve been talking about Pioneer Carry wallets since they stormed onto the scene in 2016. We knew the unique formula of simple, modern design and real-life practicality was rare in the EDC space. By developing a hearty ripstop nylon material specifically for wallets, Pioneer Carry set itself apart. It didn’t hurt that they were stronger by weight than steel and water-resistant. And in three democratic colors — blue, black and onyx — they had instant appeal.
But just when we thought we had them figured out, the magicians over at Pioneer Carry launched a brand new design and two fresh colors, slate and evergreen. They also unveiled a new material — 3PN — a proprietary 3-ply ripstop material that dirt and water repellent. The result is a wallet that is flexible, maintenance-free and designed to be sleeker than leather while retaining a luxurious and modern feel.
Blacker than Black
Pioneer Carry’s original offering was restricted to powder blue and black nylon with white cross stitching. While fetching in its own way, there was an obvious opportunity to go a bit stealthier. Then they launched onyx, a matte black nylon with subdued black stitching. We were in love. Now every one of Pioneer Carry’s silhouettes can be had in the stealthy color, including the newest model, the Division Billfold.
More closely resembling a traditional bi-fold, the Division Billfold is the largest model in the lineup. But in the revolutionary 10XD material, it’s lighter and slimmer than the comparable leather bifold. Featuring six card slots, two internal slots for business cards and space for bills, it’s the most durable full-sized wallet on the market.
Less Is More
Introducing new models or colors can be divisive, especially in supercharged enthusiast communities. But even a quick glance at Pioneer Carry’s new color, slate, confirms what we already knew. They nailed it. Subtle and restrained, the new hue feels like an instant classic. And with a touch of blue, it’ll to pair well with all your accessories and your favorite pair of jeans.
