* Universal Smartphone Compatibility:
Part of the series of patent-pending pull-tab wallets, Wally Jr is the first of its kind to offer stick-on compatibility to smartphones beyond the Apple iPhone. "I've been happily spoiled by the convenience of combining my wallet and phone," admitted Nate Justiss, Lead Designer at Distil Union. "Now with Wally Jr, it feels so good to share Wally's functionality with our friends who don't have iPhones - and most importantly, without showing their cards or looking like they're talking on their wallets."

Using exclusive 3M Alternahesive, Wally Jr holds tight and is removable, though is not recommended for silicone, wood, leather or fabric cases.
* Remember: It's One Less Thing To Forget:
If having less to carry around everyday sounds appealing, the Wally line of minimal wallets from Distil Union were designed to do just that. The patent-pending Wally design allows the flexibility to carry only what's needed depending on the moment, or to even eliminate a separate wallet altogether. Bernard Capulong, correspondent for Everyday Carry recently remarked about the Wally for iPhone that "for everyday use, it's convenient and really simplifies my EDC." referring to EDC or "everyday carry," the philosophy or lifestyle of carrying only what one needs in a smart, efficient and often stylish way. "I really appreciated its simple, effective operation, the convenience of combining my phone and my wallet, as well as the pocket space it affords." Indeed, from business-card carrier to total wallet replacement, the Wally Jr universal stick-on solution offers something that everyone can feel good about.
