Tommy Hilfiger Cambridge Passcase, Black,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tommy Hilfiger Men's Leather Cambridge Passcase Wallet (Apparel)
I purchased the Hilfiger Cambridge Passcase, because there were times I wanted to carry just my ID and one credit card, and I thought the removable insert would be perfect for this. Then, I realized I was driving around without my auto club card, so I put that in the insert. Then, I realized I could use the insert as a sort of money clip (that doesn't actually clip) and fold some bills inside. This configuration works perfect for me! I don't even use the outer part anymore.
The insert has two, clear, inside pockets. I have my ID in one and my auto club card in the other. There are thumb slots in the clear plastic, so that you can slide them out more easily, which is good as the fit is pretty tight. On the outside of the insert, there are two leather card pockets on one side. I have a credit card in one, and I leave the other empty to reduce bulk. When I travel for business, I put a company credit card there. Right now, I have eight bills inside, and they stick out a little, but not enough to bother me. If they're lined up well, it's probably less than 1/16". With the items I've mentioned above and a few credit card receipts, the insert closes fine and is still pretty thin. I don't have a ruler handy, but it's about as thick as my iPhone 4s in its silicone skin case. Without the bills, it's maybe 2/3 of that.
When I used the inner and outer sections as a whole unit, it was a bit bulky for me, and being brand new, it was a bit stiff. I'm sure the leather would've softened over time and fit around my stuff better, but as I said, I realized I didn't need to carry as much as I had been. I think I had credit cards in most of the pockets, along with some business cards, and maybe a couple of frequent buyer type cards. This made the whole unit kind of thick, and the new, stiff leather made it feel even thicker.
I'm not sure what use most people would have for a passcase wallet, but the insert is the perfect, tiny wallet for me. The outer part holds all my other stuff which I take with me only when needed. I'm the kind of guy who likes having everything all the time, but going minimal has worked out pretty well so far, as long as I plan ahead.

Exactly what I was thinking of using it for. Great detailed review. I figure I can take the whole wallet with me, and leave the outer part locked in the car while I take what cards I happen to need into wherever I'm going. No need to carry every gift card and insurance card everywhere.
