Hawbuck Lean DCF Wallets – Summer Sale
I haven’t run a sale since Black Friday of last year—overdue—so Backpacking Light members, take 15% off any order with code “BPLSUMMER” until the solstice, June 21st
I couldn’t find the wallet I wanted, so a year and a half ago I started making them. I believe I make the best ultralight wallet out there, and strive to keep it that way. They weigh 5 grams. I sew them in batches of a dozen or so at a time.
$30 USD, Shipped Free Worldwide

Free bump for my favorite wallet. I have almost a year on mine and it’s doing great. It would be hard for me to exaggerate how much I like this wallet.Jun 12, 2019 at 2:47 pm #3597370
Thank you Matthew! So glad to hear.Jun 12, 2019 at 10:12 pm #3597472

Still using my Hawbuck from last year as well.
The only noticeable wear are some sort of fibrous threads along the perimeter. Perhaps it’s the dyneema? I’m not sure.
I could always just trim them off with scissors but so far haven’t bothered.
Stitching and everything else is holding up well.Jun 12, 2019 at 10:52 pm #3597480
David, I had some fibers a few months ago. I ran the edges of the wallet over a lighter quickly and they have not reappeared. :)Jun 12, 2019 at 11:56 pm #3597500
I too continue to use mine as my daily wallet. Holding up great with same very minor loose dyneema thread issues as David and Matthew. Highly recommended.Jun 13, 2019 at 3:42 am #3597577
Matthew, I did the same thing with those fine Dyneema fibers that eventually appeared along the far edges.
I’ve considered doing a tutorial, but held off, it seemed risky to promote taking flame to Dyneema. You’re right, it works great— just have to keep some distance and keep it moving. I’ve found that a soldering iron is a good option, a bit more controlled.
Great to hear the good reports! Thank y’all.
