This review is from: Dopp Regatta 88 Series Front Getaway Pocket (Shoes)
I was looking for the lightest, slimmest possible wallet, and the Dopp Getaway is just about perfect. For the first couple of weeks I kept sticking my hand in my pocket to make sure it was still there - it's that unobtrusive. It's made out of soft, thin leather (so thin, actually, that the embossed lettering on my credit cards shows through the surface). That might affect the durability, but it certainly keeps the overall bulk of the wallet down. The illustration shows a large embossed crest, but mine arrived with only discreet lettering saying "Dopp" at the bottom - a significant improvement, in my mind. The wallet has pockets for 3 credit cards and a little pouch, open on the top and one side, to hold your cash. There's also one additional pocket that's ideal for other documents you just have to carry. The only slight negative for me was the caramel-colored vinyl lining of the cash pocket. I don't know why they used such a low-class material there. It's invisible from the outside, and not really offensive, but if I could change one thing, that would be it. I debated knocking off a star for it, but the overall function and appearance of the wallet is so excellent that I thought it deserved the full five stars.
Overall, if you're disciplined about what you carry, you'll love the small size and low bulk of this wallet.
Update 2010: I'm now on my second one of these - they seem to last about 3 years for me. I actually think that's pretty good, given how little material is present. I'm sure the durability is helped because you don't sit on the thing. If somebody sits on your lap a lot, of course, you'll want to factor that in to your expectations. Still a great product, and when I wear this one out, I'll buy another.
