Durable, Very Slim, and Secure
on July 7, 2013
I HATE bulky wallets - probably just like you if you're considering this product. Well, I've tried many different options, and this is the best.
Other slim wallets tend to use thinner leather to reduce bulk. That seems smart, but it results in a wallet that stretches and doesn't last too long. In contrast, this little guy uses very high quality, durable leather and strong woven pouches. This company makes the strongest slim wallets by far, and they are among the slimmest as well.
For some time, I carried the version of this wallet with the ID window. This version is better. Because cards are so easily accessible, the need for a plastic window is very low. In fact, because some stores make you actually remove your ID for various reasons, this version is surprisingly more convenient. Moreover, the plastic window degrades and tears with time. In other words, the advantages of this more simple design outweigh similar products from the same company.
You may be concerned that your cards will fall out of the pouches. They will not. I routinely carry 7 cards - 3 in the front pouch, and two in the middle and back. There is room for two more. The middle pouch is the most secure, as it holds cards the tightest. I've never lost a single card, though I've dropped this wallet a hundred times. The wallet grips the cards enough to secure them, but not so much to make them inaccessible. You can also stick a few bills (not more than 4 or 5) in along with the cards if you don't mind folding them into quarters.
The only small problem I've had is that cards protrude a very minimal amount from the wallet before it is broken in. This doesn't really matter, however, as the card is broken in within few days.
Overall, this is my favorite slim wallet by far. If you don't carry excessive cash and don't feel like you need all of your loyalty cards in your pocket all the time (keep them in your car!), this is the best wallet you can buy. My other slimmy lasted me more than two years. I am sure this will double that performance.
