Adventure Cycling Association Recycled Map Wallets
Adventure Cycling Association
One Size - Inventory On Hand - 241
Constructed of outdated Adventure Cycling Route Network maps, this is the perfect ultralight wallet! Each wallet is unique depending on the map used and features two small pockets for credit cards and one larger pocket for bills.
I am replacing a recycled map wallet that finally wore out after several years' hard use. My favorite feature is that it blends in with the other items in my touring gear--it would be easy for someone looking for valuables to conclude that the wallet is just another of the Adventure Cycling route maps we typically have with us when we tour. Light, strong, durable, inexpensive, and camouflaged--perfect!
Worth betting on.

I've bought this wallet again after about 2.5 years of daily use on the first one. Its very light but more importantly to me, the map material allows for a very THIN wallet for those who like to cary just their license, a couple cards, and a bit of cash. Aside from a small zip-lock, you probably won't find a thinner lighter design. A leather wallet could last 2-3 times as long, but hey, this one is only $10. The map ink does wear off, but the stitching and paper have held up better than expected. The only con really, is that the map design blends in with other misc. papers and could be confused with trash. This never happened, but a few friends betted me beers that it would. Time to cash in.

I have it in my travel kit where every ounce counts
Totally cool wallet and reuse.

It's small, but that's good. I frequently get compliments on it. Yes it shows signs of wear, but still works after 9 months. It's only $10, so hey.
nice and light but map features quickly wear off

Colorful; reminds me of bike trips (even while on them). There's not room for much; just holds the essentials, which is a plus and a minus. The pockets holding credit cards fatigued quickly, requiring me to stuff in an extra card or too to keep the cards from falling out too easily. The wallet chosen map's details fade way too quickly; they didn't even make it through a 250 mile trip in Italy. Waterproof but the corners wore in heavy rain. That said, I'm buying a new one! My first was pickpocketed in Rome).
Perfect Cycling Wallet

I use this wallet for cycling as it is light, somewhat water proof, and just the right size to fit in my jersey pocket. I feel good about using a recycled map in a new use. Plus, not sure if staff thinks about this prior to sending out to the buyer, but the map was in an area not too far from me--so totally appropriate!

Neat idea and practical. Very light

It is taking me a little time to use it on a regular basis. I like the light weight and, of course, the map. I plan to use it more when I am out on my bike and don’t need the entire purse.
Minimalist in every sense

As someone who kept too much stuff in my wallet for (too) many years, it took a little while to adjust to the lack of space in the wallet, but when I did, it's fine! In fact, it's a bit liberating. :)
And like Kevin B, I do get compliments when I pull the wallet out.
One thing, though, the wallet will show signs of wear QUICKLY. It took maybe a week for parts of the map to "rub off".
Glad they are back!

I've had one of these wallets for many years and it has been great. Very sturdy and yet lightweight. It only now is finally on its last legs. I was so glad to see them in the catalog again - so I bought two! When I take out my wallet to pay at stores, the clerk often comments on what a neat wallet. I take the opportunity to talk about what the map is - and to advocate for bike touring!
