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.
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
Excellent quality leather... Holds everything I need.
Adding an update: a bit of the stitching around my id window started to fray... Sent buffway an email and they had me submit a photo of the damages. Then they replaced my unit no questions asked. This is a great company, with fast customer service, and a great product.
Have been looking for a smaller wallet with RFID blocking to carry in my front pocket and this fit the bill. I have spent as much as $40 on wallets in the past believing they were worth it. Was only going to use this wallet when I go to open markets and other crowded places where wallet security is imperative. However, after realizing it allows me to carry everything I need much more comfortably it has become my everyday wallet. Have only had it about a month now, but would buy again. More than I expected for the price and it looks good (bought the light tan). I especially like the thumb slide to easily get to my military ID, while still feeling confident nothing is going to fall out.
Nice and compact and well organized. I was looking for something which could hold a little more items, so I purchased two other similar items. The convenience and organization of this one overrode other factors, so I stuck with it. It is a little tight for removing cards, but expect to loosen up some with use. I can't say much for the construction quality except that it looks well made. Time will tell.
This is my second Buffway Slim Wallet in 3 weeks! I loved the first one as it allowed me to put it in my front pocket rather than continually sitting on a bulky wad of cards, folding money and other "stuff" that built up in my traditional wallet. I carry the everyday stuff in the first Buffway and the seldom used stuff like department store discount cards in the second.
I wanted a trim, slim product that fit easily into a small purse. This product is very well made and fits the bill for me. There are spaces for folding money as well as credit card slots. Very pleased with this one - the RFID blocking provided is an extra PLUS for me! It also comes in several different colors, to match larger purses, or just because!
