Doesn't hold up to regular use
, October 7, 2008
Several reviewers have commented that some of the other reviewers must be getting paid for favorable reviews of this. I think they just may be from owners who have only had the wallet for a few weeks.
I had this product for four months before ditching it and starting the search for another wallet.
I love the concept -- this is just not executed well.
My main problem is with the card-pockets. They don't work. When I started, I tried to trim-down the number of cards I was carrying, and ended up with about 12 -- 3 to each pocket. Apparently, that's not enough in each one, as the cards would slide out every time the wallet was opened.
After a few weeks of dropped cards and frustration, I re-arranged things a bit. Two pockets ended up with 1 card each, and the other two had about 5 each. This fixed the sliding-out problem rather well.
Unfortunately, it created another problem, as the seam between two of the pockets came un-stitched. Now I had the sliding out problem compounded with sliding AROUND. Each time I opened the wallet, I'd end up with a bunch of cards sliding out to the middle....not fun.
I have seen the suggestions and customer-service fixes in these comments. Credit cards are a standard-size -- the manufacturer shouldn't be telling customers they have to re-stitch or move the seam for the wallet to work properly. Also, I don't feel wallets are items that need "retraining" for their owners to properly handle them. I've been using wallets for 35 years...and they've all worked better than this one.
I'm disappointed because at first, I really liked it -- it's really thin, and that's great. But until they figure out how to handle cards so that they are secure, yet easy to remove, I will look elsewhere.
