So far so good! I’ve had the same wallet for 12+ years. I had receipts, pictures, coupons, and many cards I don’t need. I was skeptical going from my George Costanza wallet to something like this. But.... now I carry 5 cards, my ID, a little cash, and even a subway coupon I’ll never use. It holds everything tightly. I’ve only had it for a week but I like it a lot. Going from a rear pocket to a front pocket has been the biggest challenge. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been walking out of the house and check my back pocket, finding no wallet. My heart drops every time.
***Update 18 months later**** Wallet is starting to fall apart...
I like the slim design and the price, but I really hate false advertising. It is not RFID proof. I can still unlock doors with my scanning card from the oppisite side of the wallet. No part of this wallet has any RFID protection.
It's ok. Not great. I'm a minimalist and after a week with this wallet, I'm deciding to go with a carbon fiber one instead. As well as a matching carbon fiber key holder. This wallet was just too flimsy for me and the plastic window is starting to come apart. I'll keep it for a secondary holder. Fishing license, Casino cards, etc... things I hardly use but won't carry in my daily wallet. I gave it a try but it's not me. I can't see it lasting long. I also love the RFID feature with the new wallet I'm getting.
The product does what it is supposed to do but I have three critiques that determined the above rating: (1) Taking it out of the package, the backing to the ID pocket was already detached from the bottom. I had to take my card back out and manipulate the backing back into a place where it would not overlap with my ID. (2) In terms of feel and look, it feels and loos like plastic. For something advertised as "leather,"it is not particularly leather-y. (3) While the front card pocket has a finger hole to help you get your first card out, it can be difficult to get your cards out of the other pockets. This may change with use, as the entire product is a little tight right now.
I ordered the “blackish green cross” pattern and it is NOT leather. Maybe some of the 30 different colors are, but this one is definitely vinyl or plastic of some kind. I figured it was not leather when I ordered it, but it kind of sucks that the ad insinuates that ALL of the colorways are leather.
That said, it’s good quality and the *design* is exactly as advertised. Because it’s plastic though, cards tend to stick sometimes and the slots that don’t have a push area cutout often cause issues getting the card out.
For $13 (when I bought it) or less it’s fine. Just don’t plan on it being leather or a “buy it for life” product.
Just received. Description is accurate — well made, attractive, slim, holds lots of items securely. BUT retrieving cards etc that get pushed down into the various slots is tough — can’t get fingers in to grab it. Going to try keeping 1/8” of each card just sticking out (as in picture), but it’s still a trick to get enough purchase to pull a card out. Should come with tweezers 😄. But it definitely is not a big wad in your pants, nice. So the jury is still out for me. Update a few days later: I gave up on it, just can’t get cards out. Shame, it’s nicely made.
I just got this wallet today and really like it for the most part. It seems relatively well made and has plenty of pockets. However, it is NOT RFID blocking in all of the pockets. I tested it out by putting a NFC chip inside and my phone registered it right away in the most exterior pockets. I would recommend something else if your main selling point is the RFID blocking.
The wallet itself looks amazing and looks great. It’s convenient and has many pockets for your cards. I’ve yet to fill them all up. It stores your money perfectly and doesn’t cramp up even if you put like 10 bills in there. It’s great how it has your ID in one side ready to show and on the other side you have your card that you can push up to pay whenever needed. It’s a nice tool to have in your arsenal. But now down to the nitty gritty about it. The wallet practically weighs nothing even when full. It doesn’t feel like your carrying something inside it. It doesn’t feel sturdy nor does it feel quality when you touch it. Indeed it does feel flimsy and plasticky. I tend to misplace it a bit just because it’s so light and I feel it can end up anywhere. If your looking for convenient options with out the heavy price of a expensive marked up wallet you have yours here. If you want something quality and sturdy that says I have a quality wallet then turn back around and go another direction. I will test it for 1 month and if am still indecisive about it, I will switch out wallets.
I got this because I wanted to downsize and have RFID protection. The RFID protection works, but I put 6 credit cards in, which it has space for. It was packed in so tightly, I couldn't get any of them out. I was tempted to go get my pliers, but with a little time, I was able to get one out on each side, then the rest came out easily. This is not a good thing if you need to pull one out in the store to pay, or need to get out your license to show police. So, I tossed it in my drawer, going back to my previous wallet. If I go on a trip and only need 2 cards plus license, I'll give it a shot, but for everyday use, you are going to have a very hard time getting the card out of this vice.
My previous minimalist wallet was barely larger than a credit card, and this one is is approx 35%-40% larger / than the length & width a credit card. I liked my other wallet a lot, but figured I would give this one a try. It feels about the same width and height of a traditional wallet, just MUCH thinner, and does limit how much you can put in it (which is the whole purpose of the "minimalist wallet." Construction seems decent so far, we shall see how it holds up. So if you are looking for thin, you will be happy. But I didn't want a wallet quite this wide or tall, so only 3 stars for me.
