5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, you have to see for yourself, June 5, 2006
This really is a good wallet. Of course, what I like about it most is the size. Like most men, I had a standard leather biker wallet. A big bulky thing, that was so big, over the years I had to buy a smaller and smaller one. Soon I was getting annoyed and I started searching for a new wallet. And lately I have used a number of new wallets including a few money clips.

I was surprised when the All-Ett came in the mail; it came in a large envelope (completely flat). The biggest complaint I have with the All-Ett wallet is how it feels. It is durable, but it feels flimsy and makes a crackling sound in your pocket or when you open it. This is because of the spinnaker cloth. I will repeat again, "it is durable" .But this aside, I wouldn't trade this wallet for anything, that is how much I like it. Many times I even wear this wallet into my front pants pocket for safe keeping, it is that small.

The All-Ett doesn't seem to hold very small, "keychain" cards very well. At least I have not found a way to hold them securely. It holds regular credit cards, cash, and pictures very securely. It also doesn't hold change, no big deal because I hate change anyway. I have a large amount of material in my All-Ett and it is about one quarter the size of my old leather wallet. Right now, in my All-Ett, I have close to 30 cards, about $100, and a few pieces of folded paper in my wallet and it's still very slim and very small. I also like the All-Ett because I routinely carry a wallet in my front jacket pocket; my old wallets were too big for this. In addition, it holds pictures better than most standard wallets which is a very nice feature, possibly overlooked.

The biggest complaint most people will have with the All-Ett is how it feels and the sound it makes. It's not really that noisy, it's just a different feel. It is also not cheap, the rip-stop nylon is very thin so this makes it feel flimsy, but it is strong. I don't believe this wallet will last 10 years or longer, but I definitely see it lasting 3-5 years. Some have been known to last 5 years according to their website. These are the only drawbacks I can think of. The positives far outweigh the negatives. I used standard wallets for years but I am now convinced, and love this wallet very much. Good product.

Right now I have exactly 27 cards in my wallet and about 200 bucks. lol. Oops, I have numerous cards, mostly store cards, library and ID's. I also have my insurance and other misc papers in the wallet. And it is still slim and works great! Well over a year and this wallet is still doing great! I will buy another if it fails. Love it.

But 27 credit card would come to an inch - how is that possible for a slim wallet?? I guess it's just a joke on your part?

Edit: Oh I see, you are making fun of the item description on amazon: "... an ALL-ETT® Billfold holds 30 cards," LOL!!

I doubt he's joking. If you actually look at the wallet (better images can be found at their site: all-ett.com), it has two levels of credit cards, meaning that an inch high stack would become two half inch stacks. Even if 27 cards does come to an inch, which I doubt (given that many of those wouldn't feature the raised letters of credit cards), half an inch is not very thick for a wallet. My current wallet is thicker than that when it's empty.

does anyone else have a durability problem with this. I have been through two and they always suffer the same fate.
The corners of the all ett rip after about 6- 8 months. Also the material stretches, although they say it should not, and no longer securely holds my cards in place. This has become annoying.
I would also say that it does not seem to hold a lot of cash. 8 or more bills and the wallet does not close well.
I am debating buying a third as these problems don't seem to have been addressed.
