Making Wallets Great Again – Ögon 3C Smart Wallet Review

I want to ask you a very important question.


When you buy a product, why do you actually buy it?


Is it because it is functional? Is it because it is beautiful? Is it because you need it? Is it because you were convinced that you need it?


Can you precisely pinpoint the reasoning behind your decision?


Let me help.


All aforementioned questions are significant parameters of the product-buying equation. However, your decision usually boils down to one thing:


When you buy a product, you buy a better version of yourself.


A good product is a manifestation of your reality. It is the enhancement that you want to introduce to your life that will make it more colorful. It is the perfect accessory that you will attach to yourself and will allow you to revamp your paradigm.


Today, I want to apply this idea to a product I was offered recently.


As you have probably figured out by now, I don’t post product reviews often. I only do so when a product offered to me fulfills certain criteria – criteria that will allow both me and the brand to benefit from the exposure that I can offer.


So, recently I was approached by a brand called Ögon Designs to promote one of their products.

Ögon Designs specializes in the creation of wallets and bags that blend design with innovation. They recently released a very special wallet/card holder that tries to solve some serious issues faced by traditional wallets and asked me to write an honest review.


It was the first time I was approached by a non-clothing brand, so I was quite enthused about the prospect of promoting such an accessory.


3C Smart Wallet Review – The Wallet


The wallet is called 3C Smart Wallet (3C stands for Carbon Card Clip) and it constitutes one of the best alternatives to a traditional wallet I have ever encountered.

It was introduced in the market back in summer via an Indiegogo campaign and within a few months, it managed to not only reach its $25,000 goal but to exceed it and eventually collect $44,751 from 510 backers.

As you can see from the above picture, the wallet has a very interesting design that illuminates a futuristic touch. The gray color and the special pattern indicate the use of a very versatile material – Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP).


CFRP is an extremely strong and light fiber-reinforced plastic which contains carbon fibers. 1 CFRPs can be expensive to produce but are commonly used wherever high strength-to-weight ratio and rigidity are required.


This material helps the wallet combine lightness and durability in an exceptional way.

Apart from the eccentric and durable design, the main characteristics that help this wallet stand out are ergonomy, functionality, and security.


The designers managed to address a very special issue when it comes to a traditional wallet and its use. Most of us are accustomed to big fat wallets that we store inside our back pockets. Apparently, this can be one of the most dangerous habits one can adopt. Sitting on a big wallet can cause pain due to an imbalanced posture and this can have harmful effects on your hip and your leg (the diagnosed disease is called sciatica).

The 3C wallet can store up to seven cards and its maximum width does not exceed 8mm, thus eliminating chances for development of sciatica.

Moreover, the wallet is extremely functional and its structure allows enough room for flexibility and practicality.


Last but not least, this little thing offers RF-ID security. Nowadays, criminals have evolved their techniques dramatically. Check out the following picture:

If you own a credit card that uses RFID technology, you are vulnerable to external threats. A technology called Near-field Communication (NFC), when equipped on a smart phone, can pick up on a card’s signal, read it, stock it and even copy it, in only a few seconds. If that happens, the criminal can pretend to be you and use your information any way he wants.


The 3C wallet is also guarded with RFID blocking technology that protects your contactless cards from electronic data theft. Impressive, to say the least.


3C Smart Wallet Review – Final Verdict


This is honestly one of the best products I have ever used. Since I live in a country that is credit card friendly and tries to become cash-free, this wallet provides everything I need.

It really makes my life easier and puts my mind at ease whenever I go out.


If you consider the prospect of buying a 3C smart wallet, you can order one here.
