After 6 weeks of looking for the perfect wallet, I've finally found it with the Hobo Nancy!

Yes, I admit to being particular. But this wallet has exactly what I need:

1. Lots of space for credit/membership/discount/business cards - 4 on one side of the coin purse, 7 on the other. Slots are snug but not too tight.
2. Two bill pockets (one on each side of the coin purse) - so I have a spot for big and small bills, or US and foreign currency.
3. Easy-open, easy-close coin purse.
4. ID slot
5. On the side with the ID slot, there is a pocket the length of the wallet that can fit a small smartphone (my motorola bravo or blackberry fits), plus a couple of small cosmetics. The pocket also has another 4 card slots in it. You could probably fit checks in here, if anyone actually carries those around these days.
6. Wristband that slides in and out of the wallet - so you have a strap when you need it (which I do, having forgotten my last non-strap wallet somewhere) but can hide it when you don't.
7. Did I mention it's high quality leather and professional design?

In summary I think it holds all the bare essentials and with a strap, can function as a mini purse on its own. But it's sleek enough to fit inside a larger purse too when you need to bring along more. I'm a big fan.

I give this HOBO wallet 5+ stars! I have been in search of the perfect wallet for the last 20 years and my search is finally over!
I have purchased inexpensive wallets, pricey wallets, cheap wallets, D&B wallets, Fossil wallets, Maxx wallets....... and I must mention, one of my quirks is my wallet must match my hand bag, tote, back pack, satchel... So I have found gorgeous hand bags that I LOVE, but the wallets just don't stand up. The closest I came to bliss is the 2 Maxx kiss lock coin purses I purchased to match my Maxx black and red quilted patent leather hand bags. If they came in a wallet version I would have been thrilled. But they didn't and I need a full wallet. Search continued!
I was browsing on Amazon and stumbled on this HOBO brand. I heard of them years ago, but never looked into the brand. I could kick myself! This wallet had everything I need and want. I suffer from RSD/CRPS. I have a hard time using my left hand now. I did not want a wallet with tiny, tight, hard-to-open zippers or snaps that don't snap shut. I need to get in my wallet and close it up with my right hand. I also needed a matching kiss lock coin purse for easy access to change, but one that did not allow change to fall out all over my purse, since wallets only ever have a little sliver section for change that is hard to get in and out off and holds nothing.
I browsed every HOBO wallet on Amazon and there are several I love. I am thrilled with the Vintage Nancy! When I opened up the box I noticed right away that the leather is so soft, smooth, and very light. The magnet in the flap is very strong, but very easy to open one handed. Open the wallet and lay it flat, in the middle is the kiss lock coin purse, very strong lock but I can still open one handed, after 3 months of using this wallet I am pleased to say coins never slip out, and it is constructed of soft, but sturdy, beautiful rose fabric. Under the coin purse there is a leather wristlet strap that slides in and out. I don't like wristlet handles so that is big plus that it slides away and is hidden. To the left of the coin purse is the ID window and 4 card slots. Behind that is a pocket with 2 sections. The front section has 4 credit card slots and enough room to carry a check book or my Kindle Fire Phone. I have put my Moxie gloss and keys in there. Behind that is a section for bills, and not 1 or 2 bills but a wad of cash. To the right of the coin purse there are 7 business card/ credit card slots and a pocket behind that. It could hold more $ or receipts, coupons...
If you fill this wallet to full capacity it is still light, never looks like it is bulging at the seams, and the magnet still closes. Now, I don't cram it full. But I have filled it up to see how much I could carry. There have been several times I put my Kindle Fire phone and house keys in it and did not carry a purse.
I have had this wallet since February and I am still thrilled with my purchase. I would buy it again and suggest it to anyone in search of the perfect wallet. I have since purchased a HOBO cross body purse, which is a first for me, buying the purse to match the wallet. The only reason I would ever purchase another wallet is to buy another HOBO for variety.

Love, love this wallet!! It is so organized to keep me organized! Amazing design with so much storage in such a small space. More than sufficient card slots for all of my credit/debit cards, membership cards, and especially appointment reminders which always got lost. Now there is a place for them! And space left over in the gusseted storage section which I haven't filled yet but will I'm sure! My iPhone 4 fits in this part as well as in the change compartment, if I should want to carry my phone. Also, my check pad fits in this part as well. This wallet has options! The beautiful nickel kiss lock closure is very tight and works as it is supposed to with a great secure sounding click!! That's quality! Great leather quality as well, but not too heavy like past leather wallets have been. It closes well (a little tight with the phone in it but the leather will stretch over time I'm sure) and even for a full sized wallet, fits perfectly zipped up in my small Vera Bradley (Francie) cross body bag which is the reason for my purchase. It's not too tall nor too long, just right with room to spare! And the hidden sliding in and out attached wrist strap is an absolutely genius idea which I'm sure will come in handy if I take the wallet to use by itself for quick trips for take out food--free hands!! This wallet will make my hectic life just a tinier bit easier and should be worth the price, which was a great one on Amazon with the special New Year's discount!! Thank you very much!

Bought this wallet in violet. Such a rich color! There is more than adequate space for all my cards. There are 2 compartments for cash (bills), and the coin compartment is a huge bonus. I had a set of keys in the change purse part the other day (with all my other stuff), and I was still able to close the wallet without fear of it popping open. I've had the wallet for a couple of weeks and it hasn't been scratched at all (despite being handled by both my young children who have thrown it around at the park). I love it and would certainly buy it again. I only gave it four stars because I VERY rarely give anything 5 stars. It needs to be PERFECT for that. And the only thing I don't love about this wallet is the interior. I like it, just don't love it. Otherwise it's a really great purchase.

Beautiful quality and feel. Lots of card slots, easy magnetic closure, secure closure for coins/change (which can also hold my cell phone if needed). Perfect strap that tucks into the binding, add a wristlet for the wallet if desired, but not in the way if not. Fabric inside is beautiful and simple and still pockets for checks and bills. So glad to finally have a new wallet I know I will love and will last me a long time!

Bought this as a gift. It was everything I expected it to be. Having the change in the center is a really neat idea. There is also room in the side pocket for a smart phone. So works well as a small purse. The leather is soft and supple and the color is a pretty green. the fabric on the change part is a neat, funky print that compliments the green well.

Absolutely LOVE this wallet. I don't keep my credit cards in it as I have a special case for those, but everything else fits with plenty of room. Lots of slots and cards fit nicely. Nothing is tight. Love the idea of having my change in the middle without having to open zippers on the outside of the wallet. Have plenty of room for my IPhone 5 with Otter Box Case. I like the idea of the magnet; easy to open. The leather is soft and buttery which is a must for me. This will last me a long time

So far I love this wallet! It's just the right size (dollars fit without folding), it has a closable change area, the material is smooth and rich looking. And the magnetic closure holds closed well

Love it - I love all my HOBO pieces. Amazing quality, cute details and very stylish. I have had one wallet in use for 7 years and it looks as good as it did when I started using it - and it is a cream color! Just ready to switch it up so I got a new one!
