I really love this wallet. I was replacing a worn out traditional folding wallet, which my cards fell out of, and it was too bulky. I looked at few different ones on here and went with this one. It’s awesome. Slips into my front pocket, it’s lightbweight, holds all my cards. I only carry four. I really like the favorite card slot. I can easily access my debit card using one hand. It has a clear window ID slot. It has two slots for cash or a biz card, etc. it’s great not carrying a bulky, big wallet. It’s very well made too!
This is a great slim wallet. I use it in my larger wallet when I'm using my handbag. I didn't want a womens RFID wallet. I also like being able to carry just this in a pocket for quick trips to a store or when I don't need my handbag. I don't carry cash in it, just my licence and credit/debit card.
I had my husband test it at his friend's store and it worked very well blocking credit cards. I feel confident that my cards are safe even when carrying just this wallet.
Since I don't have many cards that need blocking (only 3), I have no problems with putting in or taking out my cards. I'm sure that if you have a lot of cards and cash, you might have a problem. However, this was designed to be a slim wallet, not to be stuffed.
I have absolutely no reservations in recommending this wallet. It's functional and works well to block cards and driver's licenses.
After way too much research I chose this for a European backpacking trip, so I could leave my fat old overstuffed wallet at home. This thing swallowed numerous credit cards, work id, driving license and cash, and I'm still checking every ten minutes as my pocket feels weird without that familiar bulge in it. I'm converted and don't think I'm going back to the "classic" wallet after the trip.
Just what I was looking for. It shipped in a bubble pouch mailer, it was so thin I could barely feel it inside the pouch. The quality is excellent, nice light brown color calf leather and well stitched. Easily holds 10 cards, has 2 money pockets and drivers license holder. Holds cards snug. The cutout on bottom of 1st card pocket aids in removing card by pushing it up. Excellent minimalist wallet, it is thinner with all my cards and money than my other wallet empty! Great for front pocket carry. I wear athletic shorts in summer that don't have back pockets, so this works for me.
Years ago I carried a wallet and a cellphone separately. Later, I began using a combined wallet cellphone case. While this was efficient, the size and bulk meant I often carried it in my hand as it was too large to fit comfortably in my pocket. And when shopping, I would place the wallet/case in my shopping cart. On more than one occasion I drove off leaving the wallet/case in the cart! Fortunately it was never stolen, but I needed another solution.
My cell phone is thin enough to place in my pocket without needing a case for protection. So it was back to getting a wallet, and this little gem fills the bill nicely. I can carry 6 plastic cards it in, plus room for some cash and a few business cards. It fits comfortably in my shirt pocket, and its small size means I wont put it in a shopping cart! It is of good quality and the material is soft and supple.
I purchased this wallet to replace on older slim money clip I had. When I first received it look great however I noticed it had a very small scratch mark and a very small piece of the leather torn. Now this is where they have absolutely outstanding customer service, first when it was delivered I automatically got an email from a customer service rep James asking how I liked it or if I had any problems, I explained everything and he instantly offered to send another one out to me with expedited shipping. He was very quick to respond and it was an entirely hassle free process. I also got automatic follow up emails from the owner of Buffway asking if everything was ok.
When I received the new wallet everything about it was perfect, the leather looked great and I didn't see any bad stitching. I have attached pictures showing the wallet it has 4 cards along with my ID being hidden behind the thank you tag) and some bills. I feel you can probably store 8 cards with relative ease but it would be a tight fit with 12. I paid the regular price $9.99 for it and feel satisfied for what I got. I will update the review in time to see how it holds up to everyday usage.
I'm very pleased and I recommend this wallet to anyone looking for a slim yet sturdy solution.
The product is exactly as described and looks just like it does in the photos. The stitching and leather seem very sturdy and I don't expect that opinion to change as the wallet gets more use.
There are a lot of pockets for such a small wallet. I've had much larger wallets with fewer pockets, making card storage a pain. As you might expect, though, putting cards in all the pockets makes it really snug. The cutout at the bottom of the front pocket makes getting that card easy, so put your most frequently used card in there. I bet the pockets will loosen up a little with wear, but not to the point that stuff will just start falling out. The clear ID pocket is tricky, though. The clear material doesn't let a regular laminated ID slide out easily, so be prepared to have trouble coaxing your ID free or count on not removing it much.
Aside from the horizontal pockets (three on one side, two on the other including the clear one), there are two vertical pockets behind those and a central cash pocket.The two outer pockets have a fabric lining on one side, making it much easier to slide cards out. The cash pocket is lined with fabric on both sides. I don't generally have cash, but the pocket looks plenty large enough to hold a decent number of bills, folded in half.
I can't speak to the RFID blocking ability. None of my cards have RFIDs and I wouldn't know how to test that ability anyway.
All together, I have one card in each of the five vertical pockets several in each of the side pockets. The wallet seems barely thicker than when it was empty and it's still so compact that I'm almost never aware it's still in my pocket. Make sure to use this in your front pocket only, unless you wrap it with a couple of wide rubber bands. It could slide out of a back pocket pretty easily and it would be much harder to notice someone pulling it out.
Just arrived and I love it already! I currently have 5 cards, my ID, a spot that can hold 2-3 folded bills, and an empty pocket to spare. I don’t often carry cash so even though I love a big wallet to carry coupons, receipts, coins, health insurance cards, etc...I only use them on a rarity. This is much better for day to day use. Let’s just hope I remember my son and I’s insurance cards and gift cards when I need them. I hope it holds up...I’ll update my review if it doesn’t.
My wife and I are taking a long saved for vacation to Europe this spring and I was looking for a slim, front pocket wallet with RFID credit card scanning protection. I’m not real keen on wearing the “under the clothing” money belt my wife was pushing. I like it simple, effective & safe. After reviewing over 30+ products on Amazon I settled on this one for these reasons: • it is amoung the slimist wallets I look at • it has a viewable ID window with a “push hole” to easily remove my ID • it has a “push hole” for easily removing your “go to” credit card • It has 4 card slots but also 2 “side slots” which can hold additional credit cards (if needed) or receipts etc • the central pocket holds your money. US dollars fit fine, of course you need to fold them in half, but the more paper money you have the thicker your wallet gets in your front pocket. Larger denomination bills can hold down the bulk. • the pockets for the credit cards are large enough to get your cards in and out easily but secure enough that the cards won’t fall out. Caution- you can put two cards in one slot but I’m afraid that regularly doing that may stretch out the leather and make the pocket looser. It kind of defeats the purpose of a minimimalist wallet! • it actually feels good in my front pocket with low mass • it is well constructed & made by a small family business, which I support that spirit. • the RFID Protection. The last thing I need is someone in Europe or anywhere stealing my identity. • All this for a good reasonable price
Hope this help you in your decision of wallet buying. Good Luck
I used to use one of those wallets that was attached to your iPhone case. How much more convenient could it be to carry your phone and cards in the same case? What a terrific invention. It worked great until I upgraded my phone to one that charges through induction. If there's a distance of more than 3mm between your phone and the charger, say goodbye to the idea that you can carry your cards on the back of your phone case and charge it wirelessly as well. So I shopped for as thin a wallet as I could find, and this one jumped out at me and said buy me (well not literally). The reviews seemed to be mostly positive except for a few people who said that the leather tore at the seams. So when I first opened the mailing package, I really paid a lot of attention to the materials and construction. My observation is that both materials and construction are top notch. I've been using this wallet for more than 4 months now, and it still performs and looks like the day I got it. There are way more slots for credit, membership, medical, and license cards than other wallets much thicker than this. I wouldn't use this wallet to carry currency, unless it's a bill or two. For me, it's just the best, thinnest card wallet yet designed.
