The Clear Organizer Wallet (dimensions: 5.7″ x 3.9″ / 145 x 100 mm) is thin but has a larger capacity than you might guess: it can fit up to 24 cards.

The “Clear” part of the Clear Organizer Wallet is the front panel, ideal for displaying your ID. It’s made out of .016″ clear urethane. In our bags and organizer pouches which use a clear material, that clear material is urethane instead of PVC. This is a conscious and, we hope, conscientious decision on our part; PVC is pretty nasty stuff. It isn’t good for your health (ever open a brand-new PVC shower curtain, get a headache, and wonder why?) or the environment. The Europe Union has gone so far as to ban PVC children’s toys. Unfortunately, PVC is still the third most widely used thermoplastic polymer, in part because urethane and other alternatives tend to be more expensive than PVC. We think the added expense of urethane is worth it for the health of you, us, and the planet.

Inside the Clear Organizer Wallet are two Ultrasuede® dividers with contoured tops (similar to those of some file folders) that help you navigate between the three sections inside the wallet. The front divider and back divider are two different colors, useful for those of us who like to organize according to color.

On the top left side of the Clear Organizer Wallet is a snaphook that allows you to clip it securely to one of the O-rings inside our briefcases, messenger bags, backpacks, travel bags, and knitting bags. If you don’t need or want the snaphook, simply break it off.

The Clear Organizer Wallet zips open and shut with a #5 YKK coil zipper with a plastic slider. This zipper is lighter than metal and won’t rust or scratch stuff like small electronics.
