The Trayvax Ascent isn\u2019t exactly one of the Cool Wallets, but it makes a fine effort with its leather exterior. It shares more in common with the Best Tactical Wallet, due to its durable steel plating and tactical design. It holds a generous number of credit cards, in addition to a cutout for cash.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Trayvax Ascent\r\nThe Trayvax Ascent makes good use of its genuine leather exterior, wrapped around a durable steel plate. More importantly, it can store 7 credit cards at one, with a small cutout for petty cash.\r\n\r\nAesthetics\r\nAesthetically speaking, the Trayvax Ascent isn\u2019t the worst, nor is it the best. The genuine top grain leather was shaped, cut, and stitched far better than the Trayvax Element was, so it gets a few bonus points there. However, it only comes in tobacco brown coloring, which isn\u2019t for everyone.\r\nDurability\r\nAs for toughness, it does well, though not as well as the Trayvax Contour. This is because the leather can wear out over time if you don\u2019t take special care of it; otherwise it cracks and peels. Underneath, however, is a strong, durable piece of stainless steel.\r\nPerformance\r\nIn practice, the Trayvax Ascent does well in its own right. It has 7 card slots altogether, but if you flip it, you\u2019ll also find additional storage, a small cutout that serves as your cash slot. Gaining access to either or is quick and painless, thanks to a pull tab, which can also be used to hang Trayvax wallets from.\r\nSize & Versatility\r\nIf you were worried about fitting this into your pockets, don\u2019t be! The Trayvax Ascent only measures to 3.8 x 2.75 x 0.3 inches, a tiny thing that easily serves as a front pocket wallet. It\u2019s so small you\u2019ll hardly notice it\u2019s there.\r\nValue\r\nUnfortunately, getting your hands on a Trayvax Ascent is easier said than done. This is because its price is rather steep. Maybe if it held more cards or money, other than 7 and 5, respectively, it would worth the price. If you can\u2019t stomach the coloring (some can\u2019t), then you can save yourself a lot by going with the Magpul Daka Everyday Wallet. It\u2019s a cheaper, equally functioning minimalist wallet.\r\nTrayvax Ascent Wrap Up\r\nThe Trayvax Ascent is a better attempt at making a stainless steel and leather wallet than previous attempts. While it is slightly cheaper than its brothers, it still has a steep price. Yes, it can hold up to 7 cards and 5 bills inside a separate slot, and it\u2019s steel is durable. But that\u2019s it. Trayvax would have to do more to warrant such a price.
