The Anti-Costanza Wallet

When it's first in your hand, the Dynomighty Billfold seems as flimsy as a paper envelope. It weighs next to nothing, and has a stiffness comparable to a manila-enveloped tax return. But while it's as thin as paper, it's Tyvek, that untearable material that contractors use to cover houses. With a balance of lightweight and bendable material, coupled with impressive tensile strength, this billfold is designed so you can avoid the Costanza wallet and its symptoms.

The Dynomighty solves the first major Costanza problem with it's thin design. While seated, it conforms to the contours of the gluteus maximus providing unparalleled comfort for a butt-pocket wallet. When you get up, it shows less of an imprint, deterring pickpockets.

The tiny woven Tyvek fibers are incredibly strong, so the Dynomighty solves the second and more unusual symptom of the Costanza wallet; there's no leather buckling on a Manhattan street corner.

Plus, you can get it in a variety of printed designs to match your lifestyle.
