I like having keys and wallet attached so I don't lose either. I have gone through many leather and velcro id holders in the past few years. I am hoping this holds up better, because it is nylon, and has zippers and not velcro. Two pockets zip closed: one has an id window and divider so contents behind the divider do not show. Will hold a fair amount. Mine has two credit cards, three id's, two insurance cards, a couple of gift cards, some cash, and three business cards in it right now. This wallet does not fold open ... you are only unzipping the pockets on one side or the other.

On the outside, there is a small open pocket from which a keyring on nylon webbing protrudes. If you won't be attaching your keys to this, you can push the ring down into the pocket. I really like this, but deducted one star because one of the zippers does not completely close.

This item has also been reviewed at the following: [...]

Update: Nine months after purchase and a broken zipper. Not roughly handled. Nylon wore very well; not so much the zipper.
Re-update: I contacted the good people at Chums, and they sent me a new one to replace the broken one. I did have to mail the bad one back, but because of what it is, that is just a couple of stamps. Excellent customer care and I would look for this brand again.

I like to carry the least amount in my pockets as possible. That includes my keys and wallet. This fits that minimalist functionality that i'm looking for in a wallet. The pluses are:

It's made of durable nylon, that means accidentally leaving it in the wash I can dry it out and not worry about it compared to say a leather wallet getting ruined, and it doesn't get scratched up with my keys.

It has 3 compartments to store things. i was able to pack 5 credit cards in the main zipper compartment, 4 in the driver license side compartment (which is clear plastic to display your ID) so you don't to fumble around to show it to the clerk. 3rd compartment that is not zippered i can easily throw in some dollar bills. With all this and the wallet is still slim and portable to put in my front pocket with my keys.

And lastly, It has a loop to store your keys so you don't have to fumble around looking for keys and your wallet.

the minuses are what prevented me from giving this 5 stars.

The zipper compartments don't close completely, leaving a slight gap, not a big deal but aesthetically doesn't look good.

the other is the display for the ID to show, it covers up portions of the bottom where the signature is or the state at the top. You may have to pull the card out to show to the clerk to verify ID when making purchases. Other than that, i'm really happy with this purchase.

I absolutely LOVE this wallet! I put my ID, credit card, library card, health insurance card, and a couple discount cards in one side. I put a few dollars in the other side. Grab my phone, and I'm ready to go! I like that the money and cards are separated. On days when I carry a purse, this easily fits in everything from my huge bag to my tiniest clutch. When I don't carry a purse it fits into my sweatshirt or jacket pocket or a pants pocket (although women's pants aren't really designed to carry wallets and the bulge looks a bit funny). I've carried and abused this every day for almost a year. It has been crammed into tiny spaces, soaked by rain and stepped on several times. It has yet to show any wear. I almost want to buy several more in case they ever discontinue this, but I really don't think it's going to fall apart any time soon.

I've had this wallet for about a month and the threading along the seams is already beginning to unravel. The zipper is beginning to snag and I'm afraid it's going to split which will make the pockets and the wallet useless. I would recommend buying a different wallet.

I have bought dozens of "compact" money/ID wallets before this one, and they were always too thick to put into your pocket, and the ID holder was always a slide into pocket with nothing to keep it from falling out! This one is great! I have had no problem with the zippers. Or with my cards fitting, all good here. I love the fact I don't have to carry a large wallet or purse in the summer. Fits right into pockets in my cargo shorts, shirt pocket, or in my hiking pack! It comfortably holds my ID and 4 other cards with room for some cash without looking over stuffed. The outer pocket with key ring is a slide into pocket with no zipper or anything to keep it closed. The little chums penguin plastic logo on the other hand is...well.....kinda silly, but I suppose if it really bothers you, you could try to slice it off! Other than that I love it & will get more to give as gifts to friends who are outdoor activity people or who just don't like carrying every card they own all the time! Dimensions: 4 1/4" W x 3" H and about 1/4 thick depending on how much you jam into it! Tough nylon, good seems.

I've owned this type of wallet for a few years now and my old one was getting passed its use by date so I required a new one. My original wallet was purchased in Australia and I tried to find somewhere to buy it in the UK but couldn't find it anywhere, I eventually found it here for delivery from the USA, so i ordered it and it arrived very fast.
As I've said earlier it's a great wallet, very well made and nice and compact, it easily takes all the bank cards ect that I need to carry but is also slimline in the pocket. I would recommend this wallet and this seller to anyone.
