Sorry, I don't know why - it opens right up for me... Try going to the main site @ www.theambitiouscard.com

Go to "Our Products" and choose "Pouches". The "Strolling Pouch" should be listed on this page.

I've discovered our site doesn't work in some countries. My ISP has blocked some countries where they have had hacking attempts.
I might try to find a second provider because of that. I'm sorry if the links don't work.

Actually this pouch isn't that new. We've been selling it for several years now.
It was designed to be inconspicuous. If you wear a suit jacket, it wouldn't even be seen.

I've attached a photo since the link doesn't work for everyone.

I've been looking at these for a while as a replacement for my "Assassin's Pouch" which is disintegrating now I'm doing weekly restaurant shifts. It's pockets are wrong and I'm feed up losing pens from it. (I bought on leave in London from Kuwait as it was the only pouch in Davenports that Summer.)

What is the size of this pouch?

What do people carry in it? (maximum)

Is there a spot to attach a magnet on the bottom? ( to hold coins, release my coin unique)

Unlike the poorly constructed assassin's pouch (I just hear the weekly complaints) I tend not to add TT pockets, and "nifty" things like that because they can all be accomplished with what is provided. Flat pockets are your friend and can be used to hold Sharpies, TT, packet tricks, bus cards, use it for ditching, etc.

In comparison, our products are made to last and guaranteed. If something rips/tears/whatever send it back for free repairs or replacement. To date, we've sold dozens and zero pouches have been returned for any reason.

The size is approx 5x5 inches. It can hold a set of ninja rings or 2 decks of cards side by side or whatever you like, obviously. If you want a magnet attachment, you can easily do that in a billion different ways, including just dropping a magnet into the pouch and taping it down on the inside bottom of the pouch. You could also tape it inside on the back of the pouch. Everyone has their own preferred spot so guessing does no good and just costs people money.

Basically, the more "features" you add to a pouch, the more it costs and most people don't need them. Those that do need something specific usually order a custom pouch or easily figure out a way to make it work with the standard model.

There are coin slots in the pouch for convenience. The pouch has zipper compartments so you can easily fill them with "stuff" and toss the whole thing in your case/car without losing valuable props at the end of a gig.

The pouch uses a very heavy duty belt clip so you can put it on and take it off without removing your belt.

We've even made a leather version of the assassin's pouch for folks fed up with the horrible craftsmanship of the original but for some reason wanted one of the same size. I have a photo of that somewhere around here.... I'll look.

Thank you Frank for all of that detail.

I've hardly used the TT pocket on my assassin's pouch. And stopped using the pen slot due to losing so many pens. I like your idea of flat pockets.

And yes every two weeks I am retaping my magnets to the bottom of my AP, which is getting annoying! The material is poor and cheap.

What is your pouch made from?
Message: Posted by: TheAmbitiousCard (Sep 24, 2014 10:12AM)
Fine Leather, of course.

If you decided you needed a slot on the bottom to slip in a magnet, let me know, and I'm sure we can figure something out for you.
We've done similar things before by sewing a flat "tube" into the seam so you don't even see it, but it's there.

Very pleased with the strolling pouch and the service from the ambitious card. I'm in the uk (England) and the delivery was very fast. good product, would purchase from Frank again without thinking. Although if I was thinking I would purchase twice as much.

I missed this comment before. I just figured the website was dead. I used my VPN and it loads fine. Guess you don't like the Philippines ha ha :)

And that is a nice looking pouch.

Oh look a picture showed up too (when the site was blocked so was the pic :) )

I used my assasins pouch only to carry stuff with me to work to mess around with when not working (which was a lot - you know government job and all). It was never good for a real performance... especially the poorly placed eyelet for IT. Sharp edges galore!


...and seriously why is there no "edit" feature for a post?

Where is it wore? On your hip or front? And it's not visible under a sport coat?

Just saw this commercial for first time.

There's a free wallet they give you with purchase that sticks to the back of iPhone. Perfect for holding business cards, locked and loaded for Card Now app trick.

I was asking the same thing. It looks like no one wants to answer you James.

Can anyone show a photo of the back?
Message: Posted by: TheAmbitiousCard (Nov 7, 2017 10:22AM)
James/Mike,
It's worn on your belt/pants and uses a heavy duty clip. You can wear it anywhere. I place it by my hip. Sometimes toward the back and out of the way.
it's meant to be worn under a jacket so it's not visible.
it has a thin profile so there's no bulk.

I don't have a pic of the back. if the description isn't enough, let me know.
