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.
I loved this wallet up until the point it started falling apart. It’s only been a few months, so I thought I could use the warranty. I’ve been trying to obtain the warranty exchange, but no luck. The warranty was a huge selling point for me, so that’s pretty frustrating.
I’ll keep this review at 1-star until someone fulfills a warranty request.
UPDATE It’s CHEAPLY MADE but you get what you pay for. It developed a small tear within a month. The corners are also fading, but I didnt attach a photo of that.
Its also not RFID blocking. I can use any of my cards in any pocket with no issue. FALSE ADVERTISING
With that said, the opening on the front and back that allows you to slide out your two most used cards is really useful and something I will always look for going forward. I am currently storing 7 cards, a couple USD, and some receipts.
Overall, for the price, I could look past the materials being cheap. But not being RFID blocking when you very obviously list it as being so is upsetting.
When I purchased this, the description said RFID blocking.... received it today. Wallet ok, but nowhere on the wallet, in the wallet or the plastic bag that it came in does it say RFID blocking. plastic bag only says says BW-WL-VC-BR made in China /. disappointed. I think this is misrepresented.
This thing really IS thin. I loaded it with 7 plastic cards, a few cardstock cards, some bills (wish I had maybe two or three million more), and a driver's license, and it's still so thin I wind up checking my back pocket to make sure it's there...unlike the regular wallet I had before, which felt like packing a dictionary in my jeans (not really, but I was always aware of it). And I think this really IS leather, altho the kind where they take leather remnants and compress them into a sheet--not cut from a whole hide (with apologies to the cow). But hey, for $13 I'm surprised it isn't made out of cardboard! Have had it for a few weeks...it's great! We'll see how it holds up. It feels pretty well made. Happy. :-)
At first, I was really impressed with the quality of this wallet.. but the seams at the bottom of the credit card holder have busted after using it for only four months. Wallets usually last me at least a year, so needless to say, I'm pretty disappointed.
Update... three month review Still The most exceptional designed wallet. The stitching has held up fine. The Buffway is well made. The only issue... the corners lose their color. This is ”genuine” leather, but it isn’t dyed in color. Kinda “painted” on. So the corner color will wear off after reasonable use with in a few months. It is not a terrible thing, but one should be aware. Then again it is only $12.99. The design, as I have stated, is the best. I would gladly pay three times more for “real” leather that would “wear-in” like “real” leather does. I still have to give it 5 stars - - - Fits the bill... Pun intended. I’ve had by credit card (folding) wallet for now 20 years. It fits everything I need. Medic Alert info card, A few credit cards, license, health care card & a few secret places for some cash. It had its better day. But just couldn’t find the right replacement. But I think I have. Needed a see-thru pocket for my Medical card. Most people might use it for a license. This Buffway holds it all in just the right places. You can add a little cash in the middle pocket along with a seldom use card. And for my hidden $... A couple of 50’s, fits perfectly in the 3 pocket side.. Take a piece of masking tape on the top of the bill, so the credit card doesn’t catch going into the pocket. You never know when a little cash is needed. The complaint...the stitching looks like it coming apart on the 3 pocket side. We will see how it holds up. The Buffway imprint is not level. Looks a little cockeyed. (Awful name for a product.) But the thumb push on the 3 pocket side for the card you use the most make this wallet a winner.. This ain’t Coach Leather. At $12.99 you can’t go wrong. 5 Stars
Needed a front pocket wallet that wasn't thick. This fit the bill. Put 5 cards, drivers license, some cash and my emergency car key in it. The key is just the blade, no fob. Not chunky at all and doesn't show in my front pocket. Been using it for several months and the leather hasn't shown wear and the stitching is still intact. No fraying yet. Can't speak to the rfid part. How would you know if it works or not. Overall a great little wallet and would buy again when this one wears out.
I love these slim wallets. I know they’re meant for the front pocket, but I feel weird if it’s not in my back pocket. So that’s where it goes, and it has been fantastic. It holds all my cards, IDs, etc. quite well.
The only gripe I have is the plastic ID slot clear plastic suctions to my ID and it can be difficult to get out. After an embarrassing few minutes of trying to get it out to prove I was old enough for a beer, I figured out I needed to lift the plastic a bit first, then it would slide out easily. A minor gripe, and definitely something I can live with.
I don't usually carry my wallet the one I own is too large for a pants pocket so I usually just take what I need and carry in my front pocket. This beautiful slim Buffway has changed all that. Smartly designed so all the ID, credit cards, and cash I might need fit in it and still leave it flat enough to fit comfortably in a front pant pocket. Bravo Buffway.
