First, regardless of quality, these aluminum wallets are best described as credit card holders, not wallets. To begin with, they're not big enough to hold anything larger than a credit card. So if you have a company ID card that exceeds the size of a credit card, tough luck. Even more crucial is how easily and silently this wallet can slide out of your pocket. This is true of both the original Ogon and cheap knockoffs like this one. They're too smooth and slippery and light to stay in a pants pocket.
For example, if you carry one in your jeans pocket and sit somewhere, such as a lovely restaurant, it could slide up and out of your jeans pocket and onto the floor without your feeling a thing. And when you return to that restaurant all disheveled and sweaty and agitated because your credit cards are missing, that restaurant will no longer seem so lovely. Example #2: If this item is in the breast pocket of your blazer and you go to a marvelous party somewhere and toss the blazer onto a bed with everyone else's coats and purses, this thing is so slippery it might slide out and shoot across that bed onto the floor where no one will find it until the housekeeper vacuums two weeks later. You will not remember that party as so marvelous. The lesson here? Unless that breast pocket buttons shut, don't carry this item in it. In fact, I don't recommend carrying this wallet on your person at all (unless secured in a purse or backpack).
But if you have a bunch of extra credit cards you want to keep organized, e.g., tucked into a safe or an automobile glove box, these wallets can be VERY functional. You can hold 7 cards in each one, perhaps one or two more if you don't mind squeezing them in. And they fan open nicely when you open the wallet so they're easy to pluck out. Sure, you can tuck in dollar bills and such, and they will fit, but these wallets are not designed for that. And storing or retrieving coins is next to impossible. Want to be that person in line at the market that fumbles for change and keeps everyone waiting? Keep your coins in one of these. Again, my suggestion is to view this as a CREDIT CARD HOLDER and nothing else.
Now allow me to unveil the mystery surrounding the conflicting reports on the quality of this item:
A few years ago I paid about $45 for an Ogon aluminum wallet that looked very much like this one. I still have it and it is of much better quality. There are no imperfections, no dents or crimps, numerous coats of paint and while it's a lousy "wallet" for the reasons described above, it's a wonderful CREDIT CARD HOLDER. I don't regret purchasing it at that price. And if you whip an Ogon wallet out to pick up a tab at a restaurant, you can show it to your friends without risking embarrassment (and they will eye it curiously - after all, it is a bit odd).
But unlike the more expensive Ogon wallet, the wallet on sale here is not perfect. It's a knockoff. When I say "knockoff" I mean it was made in China from a mold copied from an actual Ogon wallet (also made in China, but well). There is only one coat of paint and you will likely see imperfections.
Moreover, if you look closely, the black plastic parts aren't perfectly smooth; rather, you can see the tiny imperfections left by an inferior mold maker. Also, while this wallet has duplicated the Ogon's clasp, it's not as well aligned as the Ogon clasp. This might explain why so many here complain of it breaking.
On the other hand, if you're a bit tight on cash and just looking to stow away some credit cards in the glove box of your pickup or in a desk or hiding place somewhere, this might be a good cost-saving choice for you. And despite its imperfections and relative cheapness, it's kind of neat. I like how it snaps shut. But do NOT whip it out at "Le Dome" or on a date or when you interview at Goldman Sachs or ANYWHERE WHERE APPEARANCES ARE IMPORTANT.
At the time I purchased my Ogon, there were no imitations. Now you have a choice. Both the Ogon and its knockoffs are available here on Amazon. In the end, you get what you pay for.
I just received three of these in silver to hold extra credit cards I never use but for some reason can't throw out even though they are useless to me (e.g., my Barneys, GAP and West Elm cards) and they look okay and function (I got silver because the base material is silver so one is less likely to notice imperfections in the paint). But if anyone ever asks to see my aluminum "wallet", I will show them my Ogon.
If you found this review most helpful, please rate it as such. With three of these knockoffs in my possession, I could use a little ego-boosting.
Unlike the one reviewer I DO keep change in it, and it's easy to get it out - easier than my leather wallet, and whereas I worry about the change hurting the leather, there's nothing to worry about with the aluma-wallet as it's all plastic inside.
Otherwise, it is what it is. I wouldn't consider it as a replacement for a wallet; I wanted it as a beach wallet I could keep in my shorts when swimming etc. If it can be waterproofed (I'm going to try a little rubber cement) it'll be fine, as its seven accordion slots can easily accomodate a credit card, driver's license, ATM card, some folding money and change, which is all I want for the beach. As a hardshell it could protect something small I don't want crushed. As for the supposed real purpose, preventing your cards from being scanned, who knows... Does that ever really happen?
