How can I get my spouse to understand that I need this?
Here's your rationale: Buy the best, cry once. It's all about the cost per year. In college, I bought a pair of very expensive shoes for my job as a waiter. I couldn't afford them, but I bought them anyhow. They were really light and comfortable and took me through two years of waiting tables and one year as a limo driver and another year of occasional use. And then they still looked good for a month of Sundays. Cost per year was about $25. Most of the other waiters bought a new pair of $55 heavy and uncomfortable shoes every 6 months because theirs wore out and looked ratty by then. One of the principles the successful in the world understand is this: If one buys quality from the start they save money. Don't be penny wise and dollar foolish. This will be one of the most savvy investments and inexpensive leather pieces you'll ever have. And remember, you must truly love yourself before you can love others. A couple of other things to think about you'll be more popular. Everybody isn't buying one. I'll invite you to my birthday party. What's wrong, you chicken?
Which color should I get?
Pick the one that fits who you are. I've observed what the bag owners tend to be like based on the color they have chosen over the years. The category below that fits you best is probably the color you'll enjoy most. Remember, your first inclination is usually the correct one.

Are the animals tortured before they are slaughtered?
Absolutely not ! With some pigs we do use waterboarding and sensory deprivation techniques previous to slaughtering them, but the cows do not require any special handling.
Where can I see one of the bags in person?
I don't have any of the items in stores and we're not big fans of folks coming to our home in San Antonio because of the weirdo factor. My sister, Patricia and her husband (my Chess and Scrabble nemesis), send out the leather from their place near Ft. Worth, Texas, but again, because of the weirdo factor they're not set up to show either. If it helps, everyone tells me that they look better in person.
How much do they cost you, Dave?
Well, I lived for three years in a $100 a month apartment in Mexico with no hot water, because of these bags. My dog, Blue, and I drove for thousands of hours all over the North American continent because of these bags. I had a crooked Federale sent to kill me because of these bags (I convinced him that SeÃ±or Alarcon would never pay him) and we became friends). I've shed gallons of blood and tears and sweat and at least a quart of other people's, because of these bags. I've slept in my car or on the rack of my old Land Cruiser at least 150 times because of these bags. I've lost weeks of sleep and have gone hungry for days because of these bags. I was broke for years and even had to trade two of Blue's little puppies for a month's worth of tacos in order to eat because of these bags. I've been detained by who knows how many Mexican police because of these bags. I've thrown away thousands of dollars and made hundreds of mistakes because of these bags. I've been stolen from, taken advantage of and robbed because of these bags (they even stole Blue once, but I got him back). All of these things and more have happened to me because of these bags. They cost me a lot.
light wallet for small pocket
It is my 4-th product by Saddleback and it is one of my the most lovely wallet.
Very light and easy to use, especially if you don't need coins.
It easy keeps more then 10 notes + 4 debit/credit cards + ID (or driving license).
I use it in my trips everyday and very satisfied with it.
I very recommend this product for people who needs tiny wallet and prefer to use cards.
Wonderful Service & Wallet
This wallet is much nicer than my previous bulky bifold. Fits in my pocket nicer, much more simply built, and aesthetically pleasing. Great quality craftsmanship and durability, plus a 100-year warranty to back it up! Not only that, but the amazing employees helped immediately with my shipping fee problem. This quality service and product is incomparable for the price I paid anywhere else. Great business, hope to buy from you guys again!
I'm not a 'carry my wallet' kind guy. Or at least I wasn't until I got this ID Wallet. I've had it about a month now and really enjoy it. It makes me want to carry and use it. It's thin, sleek and manly!
I was looking for a thin / low profile wallet but also wanted high quality leather. I stumbled on this and was hoping for something just average.
I am literally blown away by the quality of this wallet. This thing is going to last forever and I love the craftsmanship!!
Thank you for this great product!
Last wallet I'll ever buy
I purchased this wallet in chestnut to match everything else I've purchased from SBL and it's aged beautifully. It's amazing what I've discovered that I don't actually need to carry around with me.
I currently carry 8 driver's license type cards (size & thickness) and an average of 5 bills folded in half.
I've had it stuffed with $500 worth of $20 bills with limited success just to give an idea of capacity.
I will leave a warning that long term over-stuffing will result in bent cards. use it for the purpose and capacity it was made for and you shouldn't have any issues.
Why did I ever carry a bigger wallet? I've only had it a day, but I'm in love with this thing. It's perfectly sized to fit all the basics you really need. I have 8 cards, a few bills, and a couple notes tucked away in this wallet. It is also extremely well constructed. To echo another review, the smell of the treated leather is awesome. I had to pass it around my office. Everyone loved it.
A note about the color: I purchased the "Tobacco Brown" and it does not match the color of the picture on this site. Mine is a littler darker. I actually prefer the darker color of the one I received, though.
Just another in a long line of items I've ordered from these guys. Love it, love it, love it! Awesome customer service too. You guys are the bomb!
This is an outstanding leather wallet! I have owned the same wallet for a few years now and it started to frail and crack. turns out it was made from some cheap stuff. right out of the packaging I could tell that this is really nice leather, and the stitching is superb. I know this will last me a very long time! Customer service was outstanding, seriously; you will regret not getting this amazing mark of craftsmanship.
Best and Last Wallet I'll Ever Own
I've owned this wallet for two and a half years now and it's still going strong. I'm thinking of buying more for a gift for my sons, a wallet that will last them a life time.
I've only been using this wallet for a few days, but I am completely satisfied with my purchase. The price tag is negligible when you factor in the convenience and great looks. Furthermore, the service was friendly, and Saddleback definitely justifiably believes in the quality of their products.
Goodbye George Costanza!
I always had a problem hoarding stuff in my wallet. It was especially unsightly because I carried it in my front pocket. I decided it was time to look for a minimalist style wallet, but I wanted it to be nice. I searched everywhere and looked at all different brands. I even bought 2 others from different companies and sent them back. Then I came across Saddleback. I was amazed at the quality, craftsmanship, and customer service. Not to mention the amazing warranty on the products. This is the best money I ever spent on a wallet. This was the first Saddleback product I purchased, but it won't be my last. I think a matching belt would go nicely with my new wallet! If you're thinking about getting one...DO IT...you will NOT be disappointed!
The best $33 you'll spend
I bought a Dark Coffee Brown one and as soon as I opened the package, I knew I had bought premium quality leather. The SMELL! Such fine leather with an amazing thread-work, it made my older card wallet look like a rag. I could easily accommodate 6-7 cards, some cash and two ID cards in it. It is a little bit stiff now but I know it will loosen up with time and use.
This is a great product and will make an amazing gift.
I love this wallet. I wanted something minimalistic, slim, so it doesn't turn into a Costanza in the pocket.
Here's the best part. I have lost it TWICE, and both times a good Samaritan has returned it. I could replace the cards, I can get a new license, but the loss of the wallet hurt.
The leather is holding up. I did find that if you randomly put more cards then you normally use, it will stretch a bit, then when you downsize, the cards are a bit loose for a week or so. I stick to two cards in each slot now.
Bought one in Coffee for myself, but my wife confiscated it. She said it was exactly what she has been looking for. Not too big, not too small. Now she wants one in EACH of the beautiful colors to match her growing collection of Saddleback Leather. You guys have become a one-stop gift shop!
I really have nothing to add to the reviews about the wallet. So I will say something about the people behind the wallet.
The service I received was excellent. They were very helpful, friendly, and quickly answered any question I had. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
And the wallet is excellent.
Perfect Thin Wallet
This wallet is great. I wanted to get a smaller wallet for some time now and my brother recommended this one. The craftsmanship is just as wonderful as the design. I can easily fit 6-7 cards with cash in it and it is still very slim.
For the price, this wallet is an absolute steal. Shipping was fast too!
Perfect Birthday Day
My father gave me a leather wallet 15 years ago. While it still worked, it didn't fit well in slimmer pockets and I worried over its scuffs. I was hinting at getting an ID wallet, and sister gave me one of these for my birthday.
Now I must admit, until now I had written Saddleback Leather off. While they looked rugged, they seemed to be geared towards people who always wear jeans to work, work that was far sweatier than mine. To my great shame now, I thought that I needed Coach and Louis Vuitton. But in hindsight, this thing is perfect. In my back pocket, I almost forget it exists. Furthermore, I can flash my ID right quick, and keep my important insurance information behind it.
People have marveled at its workmanship when I pull it out. Even the people with Coach wallets have asked to feel the smooth darkened leather, and how invincible the thing feels.
I was doing myself a disavor by denying myself full leather goods. Shouldn't I also use stuff that lasts forever??? Sorry dad, but sis's wallet is the one I use for nights on the town!
Perfect ID Wallet
I love this wallet. It is great to have something this small and good-looking to hold me to a reasonable level of stuff in my pocket. I don't miss all the filler that I used to carry at all. I'd say I would buy another, but this one looks like it will last forever.
Do Yourself A Favor
BUY THIS WALLET!!!
33 Bucks for high quality that is warranted long after your dead. NOW THAT IS A BARGAIN!
A Premium ALL LEATHER wallet
ALL LEATHER including Pigskin...oh im sorry, there is the MARINE GRADE STITCHING...this thing smells of testosterone.
Small enough to carry only what you need. Its the digital age, I have a phone that keeps everything, so why do i want anything but cash and cards in my wallet.
BOTTOM LINE , Its just old school quality craftsmanship. No fancy plastic windows (to protect your plastic license) or thin fabric used as dividers (which will eventually rip). ALL LEATHER means just that.
Great minimalist wallet
This was exactly what I was looking for. A slim wallet that could carry my check card, drivers license and some cash. I used to wear my old wallets in the back right pocket, but this one stays in the front left with my phone. I like the hidden pocket for my insurance card.
Your back will thank you
I've had this wallet for about a year now, and I would (and do) highly recommend it for just about anyone. I now swear by a front-pocket wallet for comfort and convenience.
It's big enough to carry 8-10 cards (credit, license, insurance, etc.) with ease, and hold around 15 bills in the middle without being overcrowded.
It's not for George Costanza, so don't count on carrying hard candy or sugar packets, but it will carry all that you really need.
Perfect for front pocket carry
After purchasing the medium bifold wallet and being somewhat disappointed with it. I decided to try the I.D. wallet. It's perfectly comfortable in my front pocket, and fits a good amount of daily carry items - driver's license, car and medical insurance cards, passport card, some cash, and about five or six credit cards. No room for receipts, gift cards with $0.50 left on them, or busniess cards from that guy you met on the train the other day. This wallet disciplines you to carry only the necessities.
Great Gift from Wife
I got this wallet for Christmas 2011. It instantly became my every day wallet. I like that it fits in my front pocket.
The center pocket is little hard to get cash out of but that is not always a bad thing.
I looks even better after using it for a year. 99 more to go.
The last wallet this minimalist will ever buy
I've had this wallet now for a couple of years or so. All I ever want to carry around is my license, a couple insurance & credit cards, & occasionally a few dollar bills. That's all that will fit in this thing. From handling it & taking it in & out of my pocket, the leather has developed a great sheen. Any scuffs now just rub right out, although they do add character to the wallet too. I have great confidence that this wallet will easily outlast me & was a fantastic investment.
Recived this wallet about a couple of days ago. I have been thinking of getting this wallet and I finally pulled the trigger. So far, there are no regrets, the leather is very tough and seems durable. I like to keep my EDC (every day carry) as minimal and this ID wallet does that while carrying everything I need and eliminating unnecessary bulk. I am very pleased with the workmanship and am excited to see how it ages and develops a nice patina. Great product and I would reccommend this and this company, especially with a 100yr warranty, to my family and friends. I cant stop smelling the leather.
P.S. A tip on making it easier to put/remove cash inside when you first get it, isi to put the cash first(folded in half) before you put in your cards. Also, take your bills and fold it twice and leave it there for a few days.
Just what I wanted
I have been a loyal customer to Moneyclamp for over 10 years. In that time, I have gone thru 3 wallets. I wrote them asking about a thinner version of their wallet, but something sturdy that will last. I didn't hear from them and stumbled upon Saddleback. I bought this wallet and when I opened the package, it was exactly what I was looking for. Thick enough so it will withstand several years of wear. Not too many slots for credit cards and a plastic less slot for your ID. I'm a SFC In the US Army, and I have to pull my ID several times a day, and it is just what I need; also I only have 2 credit cards. This is a slam dunk if you ask me.
I don't like a big wallet. I have had ID wallets, money clip wallets, and folding wallets. Nothing has come close to this for initial quality. I was worried it might not hold enough. It's got plenty of room for at least 6 cards, drivers license, and at least 5-7 folded bills. Everything I need and incredibly well constructed. We will see how long it lasts, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.
I had been looking for the perfect thin / slim wallet for years. I had bought several that were okay but they always fell apart and were made of low grade materials and the stitching was bad. After seeing a review online of the Saddleback Leather Wallet and pictures posted by owners after years of use and the wallet actually looked better old then they did new, I knew I had to get one! The quality is amazing! The leather is some of the best I have even seen used in a wallet and the stitching is perfect! After breaking it in over a few weeks you start to forget you even have it in your pocket, it's that comfortable. If you are on the fence about purchasing this wallet go for it you wont be disappointed!
I received this as a gift and love it so far. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the durability, but it does appear to be made incredibly well. Great product at a great price.
I've had a similar style wallet for some time from a different company. Recently it began falling apart and I was happily pointed towards SBL. This wallet is of far superior construction and leather compared to what I had last time - and actually cheaper (paid $50 for last one).
Only initial downside is that the leather is rather stiff and requires some working to get cards to fit well. I've been using for a few weeks since Xmas and it is beginning to loosen up already.
Overall great product, looking to expand my collection with a bag and hopefully, some day, some moccasins if Dave decides to make them!
Ive been searching for the perfect wallet my entire wallet carrying career and I've finally found it with Saddlebacks id wallet. I hate bulk with a passion and have tried pretty much every "front pocket" wallet known to man. You name it, any brand, any cost....i've used it.
Im a month in now with this tobacco brown wallet and it just gets better and better. The leather is molding beautifully around my cards, and the color is gorgeous. No complaints, its perfect.
After a year of use, the leather has become so buttery soft. This is the perfect minimalist wallet.
Perfect for use if you don't want to bulk of a full wallet. However, you will not be able to keep a lot of cash in it unless you fold it up small.
Great Slim Wallet....
Great slim wallet.
This is the best wallet that I have ever owned.
Holds all my cards and cash.
Thanks, Saddleback Leather!
What a wonderful wallet! I have had one for about 8 months and it has started to break in nicely. The leather has softened and I can get several more cards into it comfortably. The only problem I have had is that once it has about 10+ cards in it, getting cash in or out can be a hassle. Even so, it still works fine. The ID pocket is perfect for easy, fast access to my student ID that I use several times a day. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this wallet for anyone who doesn't want the bulk of a bi-fold, but still needs to carry some cash.
Wonderful wallet! At first I was worried that it wouldn't hold all my cards and cash, but it has stretched out nicely over the last 6 months. As most of you have already heard, the patina and scratches really add to the character of a SBL piece and the Dark Coffee Brown is no exception. My only complaint is that sometimes it can be difficult to get cash in and out if I have too many cards (10+). Other than that, it is a quality wallet that I don't have to worry about falling apart.
This product is amazing! Highly recommend it.
Leather ID Wallet
Awesome wallet! It's one of the best designs of any wallet I have ever owned or considered owning. I have purchased three so far....one for me and two for other people. Overall a great value!
