    The Kiwi wallet I ordered will ship with blue and red dividers. These are the colors being used for the current batch of clear organizer wallets, and most of the wallets currently in stock use this color scheme. Azalea wallets are from the last production batch, and all use white and red dividers. Kiwi also looks good with Indigo, by the way. I use a Kiwi Kit in my Indigo Synapse.

    Thanks, Badger. The photos in the Gadgeteer review showed one steel Dyneema wallet with a white divider in front and a second cork one (shown in the Blog post and also in detail in a second picture in the article) with a blue divider in front. Both had red dividers in back. The product description page says the dividers are leaf green and cayenne, but that was only true of the very first wallet I got.

    What are current colors of Ultrasuede® dividers?

    Hi,

    Could people who have recently purchased the clear organizer wallet comment on the current colors being used for the Ultrasuede® dividers? The wallets I have use leaf green and cedar dividers (my guess as to the identity of the green and brown Ultrasuede® colors) that match the colors shown in the pictures on the product page. But in the recent blog post with the Gadgeteer review of the clear organizer wallet, it looks as though they're now using Lapis Blue (the color of the FOT Ultrasuede® pouch). (This might make a difference in the color of the organizer wallet you want to order.)

    Thanks. moriond

    Hmmm, I didn't spend this much time deciding on the color of my car.
    Too funny! I know what you mean. I was in the TB store this week, and couldn't begin to choose a color for a new pouch.

    I do what dorayme does: several pouches with different functions. Have fun with the kiwi!

    Well Kiwi is a lovely choice, too! And of course you may find out you want more than one. I use my Hemp wallet for essential cards; driver's license, insurance, debit cards, FSA card, etc. my Azalea wallet holds my membership type cards; store loyalty/punch and library cards, etc. I don't need them both every the time. What little cash I Cary I keep in a mini Cork OP. quick dashes into businesses are light and very minimalistic depending on what business I need to conduct.
    Having the multiple wallets allows me to compartmentallize cards and cash more efficiently.

    Sorry, dorayme, I called in and changed the wallet to Kiwi (Ballistic nylon), on the basis that a brighter color would be harder to lose or more noticeable if someone tried to swipe it. Not that this has ever happened to me in the past, but somehow it seemed important now that I'm putting all this effort into the choice. Hmmm, I didn't spend this much time deciding on the color of my car.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on the Dyneema wallet when it arrives.

    Thank you all again! I got the slippery steel dyneema. I already have a ridiculous # of wallets but I'd like to try one that clips to whatever I'm carrying.

    Take a look at the October 2011 blog post of wallet colors, too, to get an idea of the options. Some of these are no longer available (e.g. the Cocoa Ultrasuede, which I got earlier), but this should give you a better idea of the range of colors. Audrey's statement that the Ballistic and Dyneema are more slippery is correct. Dorayme, I don't recall any color except for Steel being offered as a Dyneema wallet option, but maybe someone can correct me. WhiteStar, the wallet is available in Azalea (at least at present). I like the Cork option, and have a number of Cordura colors, too. They're also good for holding small items like Bluetooth headsets, because of the padding in the dividers.

    The Dyneema and the Ballistic are more slippery, so have a greater chance of falling out of your pocket.

    I use Cordura wallets in my pocket and the others in secure locations such as zippered pockets or clipped to a Key Strap.

    I have about 8 of them. They're perfect for transporting my pearls when travelling, for protecting expensive hearing aids in the rain, and all sorts of other things!

    And upon seeing, I had a major disappointment that Steel Ballistic and UV Dyneema aren't in the available choices.
    Why do I have to be so rigid and limited when it comes to colors I love. I know they are all full of WIN.

    wait, they come in both dyneema and ballistic now? I have a Hemp/Rubber and an Azalea Cordura. I love them both and carry them both daily. I know cork would also be delightful, I love my cork OP. Now I'm off to see the other choices. I may NEED to get a UV Dyneema and Steel Ballistic just to ensure I have adequate options.
