Nice but not quite right.
on July 25, 2011
Ordered this wallet in black after my 10 year old wallet finally gave out. The good: Looks great, has nice feel, seems to be of good quality and stitching looks solid. Lots of pockets and notches.
The bad: it is thick, my previous wallet was a Tri-fold as well and was half as thick as this one. Now time and pressure have certainly compressed my old wallet this one is still over a 1/2" thicker. I'm thinking time and pressure won't smush it that much. While this wallet has a lot of pockets and notches to place cards, money and such, they are too narrow. I have a few ID cards that are laminated and they fit in none of the "card" pockets or even the clear pockets.The only place to store them is in the money pockets, but they are not very secure that way and have fallen out already when wallet is open. No good place to store my business cards either except the money pockets, those I don't mind being loose. The flip up id pocket in the picture (on the left) justs fits my license, again I have to work at getting it out of there. Even the credit cards fit super tight, you really need a sturdy grip to get them in or out. Those I expect over time will loosen up, but the laminated ones will never fit. So I will be heading out to the local brick and motar's to try out a few new wallets.
Bottom Line: I am not very happy with this wallet, but If your id's and cards are no wider than a credit card and are OK with a thicker wallet this would be a good deal.
