Jimi™ Wallet

Here's a nifty little thing. This is the Jimi™ Wallet, a slim wallet made for holding just a credit card or two and a few bills, with a convenient eyelet so it can be worn with a lanyard or clipped onto something. The company's FAQ page says it's so light that it can be carried in a front pocket and is barely noticeable. To quote their website, "The outer case is made from 100% recycled/recyclable Polypropylene, and the inner components from 100% recycled/recyclable Polycarbonate, which is a first cousin to bulletproof glass!"

I think this is perfect for joggers, or for working out at the gym. It's also great for college students to carry their student ID, which at many colleges functions as a campus "debit" card. It comes in at least nine colors: clear, magenta, stealth (!), ruby, pink, aqua, safety (orange), sea glass, and smoke. Each family member could have a different color, so no mixing them up.

The wallets are not submersible (too bad, because they'd be perfect for the beach if they were), but they are water resistant. (And their customer service folks got back to me very promptly when I e-mailed that question.)

(Note: I first saw this in a post at the website.)
