“Quality is not an act, it is a habit”
- Aristotle

So, in the morning, as we three, clean-cut smiley white guys emerged from the cheap hotel, everybody looked at us with suspicion. The government suspected us of bringing money to or training the rebels and the rebels thought we were government spies. Why else would any sober gringo carrying a leather briefcase visit Ocosingo? Unless, of course, it’s just where the last truck we hitched a ride with dropped us off?



But it was a morbidly interesting place with the relatively fresh bullet holes and anti-government messages of the rebels on the walls. Only a few years back, Ocosingo was the site of a major bloodbath where about 150 Zapatistas and Mexican soldiers were killed in a firefight, some found shot in the back of the head after surrendering. Tensions were still high. One could make an argument for it being the least touristy town on Earth. So, shortly after our silent breakfast, we headed out.



But the cool thing was, Ocosingo wasn’t far from where we wanted to be. The massive Mayan ruins of Palenque were breathtaking, and if you looked into the jungle you could see the majority of the ruins still unexcavated.



And then when we got to the jungle waterfalls of Las Cascadas de Agua Azul, we grabbed a vine, hacked it and used it as a rope swing into the river, tarzan style. The place was amazing as the clear blue river stepped down for miles creating a series of huge waterfalls. It was my original briefcase’s first big trip of many, but it easily could have been its last.


We use natural markings.

Simply Amazing

Got my large bifold today and well, I waited 2 months to order it and it was worth every second.

Looks, feels, and smells of quality. I go through "premium" wallets in less than a year. I'm looking forward to having this wallet until the day I die.

Customer service is amazing. From telephone, online chat, Twitter, and email, they are always ready to go above and beyond for you.

I'm a customer for life. Simple as that. Oh, and part of the proceeds go to charity.

Well done Saddleback. Well done.

Amazing in Every Way

Waited for what seemed like a lifetime to order a large bifold in Dark chocolate brown. Finally got my mitts on it today and it's just as great as I thought it would be, along with everyone else I've talked to or reviews I've read.

The quality is outstanding. You can just feel it right out of the package. I can't stop smelling the darn thing.

I'm a big guy with giant hands so the large bifold is perfect for me. Holds all my cards securely and with the built in RFID protection, it's a no brainer. Plus, a portion goes to we'll deserved charities!

Simply put, I'm looking forward to having a long relationship with my wallet, as a person that goes through "high end" wallets at a silly pace.

Oh, and the customer service is just amazing. Be it on Twitter, chat, phone or email, they are all fantastic.

difficulty to slide card in

I have saddleback front pocket wallet, credit card wallet and briefcase. I love all of them. But this bifold wallet seriously has some issues that i quit using it after 1 month of coping with it.

Firstly, when sliding the card in, it keep getting stuck between the leather and pig skin lining. Sometimes it goes in without problem. But most of the time it keep getting stuck between the edges. After paying goods at the cashier there will be stupid moment where i try to put in the credit card back to the slot

Secondly, the leather is stiff. It will never get soften with each use as there is RFID shield in between the leather and the lining. Sliding in money becomes another trouble. Especially if there is coin stuck in the bottom edges... it just difficult

Also when you close the wallet the left and right edge line do not align.

I hate to say that this is not the last wallet you ll ever need. I now use the frontpocket ID. This bifold is kept in my unused item box. I hope design will be improved in near future. Then i will buy it as my last wallet.

wallet medium bifold

i love sattleback leather first wallet edge crack exchange second wallet ok worth the investment love gerald i will purchase a belt , large bifold soon

Perfect

Medium is my fave. I've tried the small, large and even the business card wallet, and the medium fits the bill. I had the old style medium before and found it too bulky. This one, with the recent modifications, is perfect. When I pull my wallet out to pay for stuff I feel like a total stud. ;-)

Fantastic wallet!

What a fantastic wallet! Quality always reveals itself and that was apparent the moment I took it out of the package. I ordered the medium bifold in chestnut and it's beautiful. This has plenty of room for credit cards and for cash. I can see why all the saddleback products have a 100 year warranty, this wallet is built like a tank. I agree that this will be the last wallet I'll ever need. Absolutely and totally impressed with saddleback leather and their products. I suggest you just buy this already and be assured that you'll love it.

Awesome quality

I just received my medium size bifold and I must say the quality is apparent. The first thing that I noticed was how thin it was without my cards and cash. However, it does gain a little size when I got everything in. The quality is awesome as all the other reviewers have stated. The smell of the leather is nice too. I have around 10 cards in mine with some cash with no problem. I ordered the dark coffee brown. I thought the lighter pigskin wouldn't look as good as the previous darker color, but I ended really like it. I would definitely recommend this wallet. It's a great buy!

Color, fit, and finish

So, I just got my medium Tri fold in the new tobacco. I can't speak to the durability of this product but I will report back soon. What I can tell you is that this new tobacco color is a lot darker than I expected. It photographs much lighter, which is a good thing in my book. I was lucky enough to get a wallet that has three sweet bug bites on the front and a sweet scar right where the wallet folds. There are also a few scars in on the inside pocket next to the blue logo. The smell of this wallet is fantastic. For me the medium is the perfect size.. I will check back in six months to report on the durability of this piece.

Great Wallet...Fantastic Customer Service!

I feel compelled to write a review here... As much for Saddleback's outstanding service as well as my new wallet. I originally purchased a medium bifold a while back. It was great, but unfortunately was rough on the cards in my wallet. On a whim I called customer service to see if there was any resolution to my problem. I spoke with Carlie, and she apologized for the situation and sent me a newly designed wallet, free of charge, shipping, everything. I was sick with the flu at the time and Carlie even wished for me to get better soon in her follow-up email. This kind of personable customer service is almost non-existent anymore, and I am VERY impressed with how I was taken care of. Thank you, Carlie! Oh, by the way, the wallet is absolutely fantastic. Well done Saddleback. You have a customer for life.

An addiction that started with a wallet

As many of us have experienced, the cheap lining in my old wallet was coming apart. I did some online research on the best wallets and the most rugged wallets and Saddleback was on nearly every list. So I did a little exploring on the Saddleback site and decided the medium bifold in dark coffee brown was right for me.

I've had this wallet for a while now... it's barely broken in and is starting to develop a nice patina. I have the older design and have had it break two cards (middle slot on either side) when I opened the bill portion widely once. I've found that this can be avoided by being just a bit more careful and by working the wallet a bit to soften it up. Plus the new design supposedly resolved this issue.

Despite the broken cards, I love this wallet. It's beautiful, the stitching has held up extremely well, and it's been sturdy enough to survive being in my pocket through all kinds of situations, including climbing around inside petrochemical plant equipment. In fact, judging by a few of the "beauty marks" it's received, it's probably keep my hind quarters from being punctured once or twice!

This was my introduction to Saddleback Leather's quality products and I've since bought nearly 2 dozen Saddleback products, trading cold nylon and cheaper leather products for warm, full-grain Saddleback leather... including a new medium bifold in tobacco, but I don't have the heart to shelf my original purchase yet!

Small Bifold is Perfect

The small bifold is perfect, I think. Sturdy but nice and slim. It's breaking in nicely and is about 7/16 of an inch thick with 7 cards in it (no cash). It's starting to taper down really nicely on the sides and is very comfortable in my back pocket. It looks to me like the inside and card slot leather is thinner than older photos that I've seen online which is an upgrade as far as I'm concerned, as long as it hold up just as well. Based on what I've seen so far I'm not worried at all! Thanks Saddleback!

i took a punt and its paying off daily

I ADORE this wallet, when researching a new wallet (yet again another cool wallet that promised the world had failed on me) i found the saddleback warranty and considered the high end cost and took a punt. well here i am 2 years on and my wallet looks better than when it arrived, i have a real sense of pride when i pull it out to pay for stuff and often find myself telling all the blokes in the pub about its superb quality. to be honest I've already had my moneys worth because as a general builder a wallet previously only ever lasted 1 year or so. (the combination of lots of card payments in builders merchants, grit filled pockets and cement dust tend to wear out the wallet fast) this wallet promises to outlast me and i have no doubts that my son will be showing off this wallet in pubs for years after im gone. do not hesitate, buy one now.

Very nice wallet (Med Tobacco)

I love the leather and craftsmanship if the wallets. This is by far the best wallet I have owned. I do have one issue with it. The Med wallet needs to be 1/2 - 5/8" taller so that when the credit cards are in put in it wouldn't be so thick. The wallet feels too narrow in my back pocket too. The large is too big IMO. Great products.

Much Better!

Last year, I had bought the medium bifold. It was a great wallet and I absolutely loved the quality. It was one of the best wallets that I had ever owned except for the fact that it would break my cards. So when Dave came out with the new and improved version I knew that I needed to check it out. It is much better and does not put any unneeded stress on the cards. The leather is thinner in some places but it is a necessary sacrifice for the wallet's function. Overall,a great wallet and I would recommend the product to anyone!

Absolutely Great!!!

I just received before 2 days my medium bifold in Tobacco Brown.
What an amazing wallet.I have a small gadget sleeve in the same color and i was impressed by the fact that the wallet feels totally different.The tobacco brown leather is soft and the wallet feels much softer than the small gadget sleeve.GREAT!!!I use it as much as i can,just to see how it looks and how nice this leather feels in touch.I want also to state ('cause i heard a lot about the new tobacco brown) that you certainly wont getting a scratched product and at this color the little scratches really add character and seem part of the color and design of the wallet.I couldnt be happier,really!Also,i expected that the medium would be larger,but indeed its at the perfect size and fits the Euro bills very nicely!!And you get also a 100 year warranty!!(And you will also be 100% satisfied!!!)
Thank you Saddleback again!!!!

PS.Waiting for my Credit card wallet and small notepad holder in chestnut!!!

Sooooo Nice.

I've had the medium bi-fold in Tobacco for a couple weeks now. This wallet is a perfect size, the leather (and lining leather) are amazing quality and the wallet doesn't seem to need much wearing in. Other reviews have said it's maybe too big or too thick. Not so. This is replacing a worn out Coach tri-fold and i't about the same size and the leather quality is observably better. Yeah, it doesn't have a a fancy designer name or fabric lined bill and other pockets, but who needs that? Quality craftsmanship, a personable USA-based company (with a a good sense of humor, to boot) and about 35% the price. You can't go wrong here.

Great Wallet

I bought this medium sized wallet in "dark coffee brown" approximately 1 month ago. I called customer service and they were happy to answer a few brief questions of mine in advance of my purchase. The wallet arrived promptly and is of excellent quality. So far it is wearing well. I would heartily recommend one.

Wish I had one that didn't break all my cards!

Dave's video apology is much appreciated. He's right though - my (old style) wallet has broken just about every card I've put in it. However I loved it so much I bought my mate one when I was best man at his wedding. He loves his too. Quality and craftmanship are superb and it DOES look better as it gets older.

Just wish I had one of those new ones that don't wreck your cards but with postage and tax, it becomes a $100 wallet, not a $50 one! Maybe I'll save up and get a new one, but then what will I do with the old one - I reckon it will last another 50 years!

Four stars for my old one due to card breakage. Five for a new one - I would definitely recommend the new one thanks to its design changes.

What happened to the leather?

I bought the medium wallet in Chestnut for my dad for Christmas. I was excited for him to open it and experience that amazing Saddleback Leather quality, but I was disappointed to find that the leather was much thinner and lighter than any of the other products I've purchased. I have the medium briefcase in Chestnut as well as the Limited edition Small BC in tobacco, the duffel in tobacco, the small & large bible cover (for holding my agendas) in tobacco, the small notepad holder and the credit card wallet. All of these products have a much thicker leather - the leather I've come to love and associate with this brand. When my dad opened his present I was almost a little embarrassed because I had been talking it up so much. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's still a high quality saddleback product, it just didn't have that "wow" factor that the other thicker-leather products have. All in all, it's probably still the best wallet out there in terms of quality-it's just not as impressive as all the other products I've received.

Best customer service in the business

This is an update of my review of January 3, 2014 for the medium bifold wallet. SLC has replaced my older wallet which had broken many of my cards for the new model which I just received. The new version is different enough in my view that it will have solved this problem. In addition being a fan of their products, I am amazed by their commitment to complete customer satisfaction. This company is a model for others to follow.

The Omega Wallet

I asked my wife for a medium bifold last year for Christmas. I love it. After a year of use I still feel like I am breaking it in, it is barely worn. Craftsmanship like this is worth it, so stop reading reviews and buy one, you absolutely will not regret it.

Love the Tobacco Medium Bifold wallet

After much research, three months ago I purchased a Medium Bifold Wallet in Tobacco - my life has not been the same since. The quality, the design, the beauty, and the company that stands behind these products are all amazing! I've purchased over half a dozen new and Dave's Deals, and all items have been fantastic.

Regarding the Medium Bifold Wallet thickness, it still has a tendency to want to snap credit cards in half, so keep a close eye on your cards during the break-in period. By putting my cards in different pockets facing different directions I avoided any permanent card damage.

Top notch workmanship

I've only had my medium, dark coffee brown bi-fold for a week now, but I absolutely love it. I really can't wait to see how it looks once its worn in.

Built like a brick s**thouse, but . . .

As an owner of both the old model ("the card cracker") and the new one, I have to say that the new one, while more card-friendly, lacks the utterly legendary build of the old one. The old model is *much* thicker, and the pigskin lining on both sides of the billfold makes putting in and taking out notes easier because the pigskin is smooth and plasticky (unlike the new pigskin, which has its plus points but isn't like smooth plastic). I would very much rather spend some time breaking in the old one than use the new model. Which is easy for me, since I'm a female who carries her man-wallet in her purse. That said, I have no doubt that the new model is tough stuff and will last a long, long time. It's great. But I'm just glad that I have a brand new old model and will be clinging on to that one.

I confess to being a leather huffer

Because it was sold out for Christmas, I waited a bit to get my large tobacco bifold wallet. I absolutely love it. I love the way the cards stack on top of each other rather than in vertical slots, I love the fact that there is a huge section for bills and I still have 2 big pockets for receipts and such, I love they way the new tobacco finish looks, and most importantly, I love the way it smells. I have no shame when people look at me strangely in a line when I am waiting to pay for something and stop to take a huff of my wallet. This is my third piece of Saddleback craftsmanship and it will definitely not be the last.

Great wallet,,good price

Ive looked at every outdoor store (cabellas ect...) saddle shops , any where that might sell a good leather wallet, and didnt find anything like this...Its a rough duty, yet looks classy, well designed product.. You never know what your getting just looking at a picture online, but this is good stuff !!

Sophisticated

Everything you want in a wallet (mine is a chestnut medium bi-fold). Just buy it already.

Planned Permanence

I started out with medium size bifold that ate credit cards like a DR Rapid-Feed Wood Chipper. Sure, it saved me the hassle of cutting up a few of them, but it was rubbing off the photo on my driver's license and ordering new cards was a lot more hassle than dealing with the friendly folks at Saddleback. Even so, I was prepared to deal with these inconveniences knowing the wallet would likely outlive the financial institutions that issued the cards.

When I recently called customer service, it was to learn if there were any plans to offer a belt pouch that would fit my cell phone. Unfortunately, the larger of the current pouches is too small for my larger than i-phone. Given that many of us bolster these delicate devices with padded exoskeletons, a larger pouch would be welcome. I was told that no larger pouch is currently in the works but in the course of the conversation, the rep asked how I liked my wallet. I said I liked it just fine but my credit cards were less enthusiastic. I was then prompted to exchange it for a new medium bifold with redesigned card slots. The replacement seemed like an improvement but immediately cracked my abraded driver's license.

Another call to customer service and the large bifold was offered in exchange.

Well, this seems to be the perfect fix. Nice snug fit in my jeans back pocket and less bulge. The larger size keeps the cards flat and less likely to flex and it just feels right in the hand. Currency fits more easily too and there is room for receipts and the like. Maybe not the first choice for the front pocket of guys into 60s stovepipe trousers, but for me this one is a keeper. Saddleback customer service is absolutely first rate and you are dealing with people who want to keep you as a customer. In a time when so many things we own are obsolete before we unbox them, this is one possession that will endure.

New Leather
Small Bi-fold Wallet (Carbon) ***this review***

For those new to Saddleback Leather, this is a well made wallet that will outlast any of the name brands out there for sure. The Carbon color is a nice mellow black that shows some brown hues but it is not at all a brown. The wallet takes time to break in, and you will need to use it for months and months before it is completely broken in. You can speed the break in process with various softening/conditioning products that are mentioned on this site and around the web if you chose.

Now for those who have shopped at Saddleback over the years, this wallet is very good but when comparing it to my older wallets here are the changes and my comments.

1. The leather is thinner, not by a huge amount but it is definitely a less bulky wallet.
2. The Pig skin (leather) is much, much more supple the previous pig skin. The old version always seemed very tough and coated with something that never really allowed it too break in naturally.
3. The new leather is also much more supple as compared to the org. leather. I am under the impression that this is mainly due to the reduction in thickness vs. any difference in the leather quality.
4. The pig skin (leather) lining is only on one side of the billfold. This bothers me as it seems like a revenue / margin tacit. I also think it makes the billfold appear 1/2 done as compared to my older ones.

Summary, I like the wallet very much. Particularly the new carbon color as compared to the 'old' black which was well..very, very black. I also like the reduction in thickness too and do not believe this impacts the overall durability in any meaningful way. I am disappointed with the pig lining only being on one side of the bill-fold which I DO think is more about per unit cost savings vs. anything else. I rate this a four out of five stars, which would have been a five star rating except for the pig skin lining issue that has triggered my OCD.

Somewhat dissappointed

I have been using the medium wallet for about a year or so and have managed to break many of my credit and bank cards all in the same spot - right where the card is exposed above the slot. I hsvr stopped using the wallet and no more broken cards. My friend says he has a new model which addresses this problem, I hope it does. Great company to deal with, they really care about the customers and the quality of their products.

Stunning wallet!

I heard nothing but great things about this wallet and now I know why. I received my wallet yesterday and I can't stop looking at it and smelling it. I really hope this is the last wallet I will ever need to purchase because I simply do not want another one. The quality is outstanding. I recommend this wallet to anyone that needs one!

My last wallet (for myself)

I purchased the large one for my Birthday, (just turned 65). I am so glad I found you folks. It does lay flat, gives me the option of the back pocket carry, or the front pocket of my suit. The quality, and worksmanship is astounding. Like I said, I probably will never need to purchase another one, looks like it will last me a life time. But I have two sons, and 4 grandsons, guess what they are getting on their Birthdays?

Extremely impressed

I'm from the U.K and received the the medium chestnut bifold wallet. It's absolutely beautiful I was concerned that the £20 note wouldn't fit but with a little persuasion it fits just snug. I would recommend this wallet to anyone especially seeing that now I don't need to worry about buying a new wallet for the rest of my life.

Can't Stop Staring

It's currently Christmas morning and I opened the box containing my Medium Bi-fold in Chestnut. I spent the first 5 minutes telling everyone to smell it. Then I proceeded to smell it for 5 minutes of my own time. I've been staring at it for an hour now. Opening and closing it and thanking the cow who sacrificed his hide for this beautiful wallet. This thing is beautiful. Now I know how women feel when they get a new purse. I get it now. It all makes sense. This wallet manages to look beautiful with understating looks. It's simple. Buy it. I hope I never need another wallet. I'll never cheat on you Saddleback Wallet!

Worth every penny!

Purchased: 02/17/2008

I purchased this for my B-day. I made this purchase in 2008, I've had 2 cards break in them. So watch out for that. I keep the important cards at the top and AAA and other ones below. Also, the slits in between is though so its not easy to pull Credit Cards in and out. I assume this was for business cards. I play sports and travel a lot and the wallet still looks great, almost brand new.

Do I regret my purchase? No. I would I purcahse another? Yes. Just need to fix card issue. I assumed they fixed that in the new model.

Best wallet EVER

I WILL NEVER BUY A WALLET ANYWHERE ELSE- mostly because it seems I will never have to buy another wallet period! I bought the medium wallet for my boyfriend over 3 years ago. It is more beautiful today than the day we got it! My boyfriend has ripped apart the "best" wallets in the world (made mincemeat out of a leather one from a famous biker company - I'm sure you know the one - in under 6 months). So when I bought this one from saddleback at such an AMAZING PRICE: $50 for a lifetime- I gave a little laugh, and thought: they obviously have never met MY man and thought they'd be replacing this baby every year hahaha! But they proved me wrong - you should see the number of credit cards this man has stretched this wallet to fit over the last three years, yet this wallet stays in one beautiful shiny piece. The wallet I bought is easily worth ten times what I bought it for. Saddleback Leather easily makes the best wallets in the WORLD!

Totally worth it.

Among the SBL items I bought recently are the medium and large bifolds, in carbon. My son wanted a new wallet and I needed to get something for my dad for Christmas, so I ordered those two wallets and let the boy decide. After carefully comparing them, he chose the medium, so Dad gets the large. There's really nothing more I can add to the many reviews already out there except to reinforce that everything you read about SBL is true - the products are very well made and the company is a pleasure to deal with, providing a level of customer service I'm not sure was even around in the old days. Some people say they're expensive; considering the quality and quantity of what you're getting, I think they're a true bargain. Very highly recommended.

What smell?

Products:
Small Bifold in DCB
Medium Macbook Pro sleeve in DCB

Pros:
Look great
Feel great
Work great

Cons:
These pieces smell nothing like leather to my nose. It's more of a vinyl/plastic synthetic scent, and it's pretty intense at first. I guess it's the die (could be a DCB thing). If someone put a blindfold on my eyes and one of these pieces under my nose, I would not guess that they were leather. The smell fades quickly with use, so it's not a showstopper.

On the flip side, nobody else seems to have made this observation so it could be that I am crazy or do not know what actual leather is supposed to smell like ;)

Best Wallet EVER!

My girlfriend gave me the small bifold as an early xmas gift. My first thoughts when I took it out of the packaging were "WOW"! The stitching is VERY durable, it appears to be sewn with nylon thread, the wallet is thick and looks very robust. It's quite small. It dissapears in my pocket. Thank you Saddleback Leather!

First Impressions

From the first time I saw this wallet on Google, I was impressed. I came to the website, read Dave's story, watched some videos, read some reviews (both good and bad), chose the medium bifold wallet and finished the deal. Easy transaction. I was excited when the package arrived but thrilled when I opened it and oh, that smell! Like after a good rain, like good dark soil, like freshly mowed grass. Then I took it out and just felt it. Jeez, it's thick leather, and stiff, too, just like my mountaineering boots. Perfect stitching, no silly embossing, just the name. Rather difficult at first to get my cards into it but I dont want them to fall out, do I? Good, heavy leather. adequate storage capability, for my purposes. Well made. Is it really made in America? This reminds me of the stuff that used to be made here, i.e., Duesenbergs and steel, Snapon and Jazz. This wallet almost makes me want to buy more of Dave's leather goods even though I have no use for it, just because its well made. I like this wallet. I will post another review when I've had it a year.

Small Bifold - Best Wallet I've Ever Bought

I bought this wallet because I was tired of paying $30 every few years for a wallet that had good leather but fabric lining that would always tear.
Best $50 I've ever spent. (Well... except for the time I went to Vegas and turned $50 into a lot more.) First, the design is fantastic. There's no better way to keep your cards safe than having their pockets face the bend of the wallet. Second, this thick and durable. When it was brand spankin new, it was difficult to shove bills into the crease, but after a year and a half, it's more pliable, and I've been able to stuff thirty bills into it.
What you should know:
1) It starts off stiff, so anticipate carrying fewer bills until you break it in.
2) It will slowly bend your credit cards. They'll still work, but if you plan on using them as coasters once they've expired, the coasters won't be flat.
3) The card pockets will stretch. I don't think this makes much of a difference since the cards have no way of escaping your wallet unless if you decide to hold the wallet opened and shake it.

Oh, and I got it for my brother in law in black (mine is chestnut) and he loves his. Hell yes I'd recommend this product.

Medium version will eventually break your cards

I'm very torn to write this, because I will ultimately keep using this wallet and do like it very much, but the medium version will eventually make any cards crack right along the point where they stick out from the top of the leather. Ultimately, this isn't a huge issue because the bank replaces your cards periodically, but it might really bug some folks. In terms of quality, it's top notch, and I'll use this thing until the day I die, but the card issue is something to consider if you're thinking of buying it.

Poor design

Very poor design of the medium bi-fold wallet. It has broken all of my credit cards where they stick out of the pockets. I appears that they have changed the design in the last 6 months, but I still wouldn't want to try it again.

The smell...oh the smell

When I first opened up the package that arrived in the mail, the first thing that struck me, was the glorious smell of real leather.

Next was the feel. It feels so smooth its incredible. Its like stroking a Mongolian ferret. I have honestly no idea what that would feel like, but I imagine it would be almost as awesome as the feel of this wallet.

The stitching is superb. The craftsmanship is superb. The look is superb. This is a truly BIFL wallet that I will treasure!

Breaks Credit Card

Great product but the medium size cracks credit cards right at the magnetic strip. The cards then will not scan through credit card machines or ATM''s.

As with other SB products I have, great quality but disappointing design. Will have to look for another wallet

Super Product - Super Service

I owned a wallet from one of the "rivals" and had it for around 25 years. I was very pleased with it and when the stitching came apart a while back, I wasn't too disappointed because it lasted a long time. When I went to the rival's website to order a new wallet, I wasn't particularly happy with their latest styles and I got the impression from a few reviews their quality might not be as good as it once was. So I searched the Internet and initially found nothing better than what was offered at the rival's site. Thankfully, I eventually found Saddleback Leather and liked the appearance of their wallets. Then the 100-year guarantee caught my attention and I was hooked. The more I read about the quality actually made me yearn to have one in my hands right away! I ordered the Medium Bi-Fold Wallet based on the listing stating it holds 18 credit-type cards, which amounts to 3 cards per slot, since there are 6 slots. When I received the wallet in just a few days, my joy was saddened when I could only squeeze 2 cards in each slot, and even that was a tight fit. However, I really like the quality, so I immediately ordered the Large and contacted Saddleback about returning the Medium. I received a pleasant response from Liz in less than an hour with instructions on how to return the medium for a refund - with their phone number, front and center, in case I needed to call. Then, less than a half hour after that I received a message from Hannah who mentioned that when I get the Large Bi-Fold, it helps to put just one card in each slot, then add a card each day, which gives the leather a chance to stretch a bit. I used that technique a few days later when I received my Large Bi- Fold and that made a lot of difference. The Large still fits easily in my back pocket (I have a 36 inch waist) and I totally love the handsome style and quality of this finely crafted wallet.

Stunning Wallet

I bought this wallet for my husband and I'm not sure who was more excited about it. This wallet is so well made. I would recommend Saddleback to everyone.

True Quality

I just bought the Small Tobacco Bifold and I couldn't be more pleased. I've used Saddleback before and have been meaning to buy a wallet for a couple of years and finally pulled the trigger. Let me just say thanks to Dave and the rest of the Saddleback team for their attention to quality and detail. This wallet I'm holding in my hand is top notch leather with excellent thickness and stitching. It's breaking in nicely after only three days and is already aging beautifully like a fine wine. To anyone who may read this review to aid his or her decision, my advice is go for it. This product is absolutely worth the money. I'll be a customer for life! - Ethan

Medium Bifold Wallet - Carbon

This wallet is fantastic. It is extremely durable and it's great to look at. I enjoy having a product that is made with such pride by people who seem to love their craft.!

Everything I Had Hoped

I just received the Large Tobacco Bifold and, since I'm a Saddleback veteran, I can review it immediately (I know how it will hold up!). First let me say that I was a little nervous about ordering this color because everything else I have is Chestnut (yes, I pretty much match Dave's description of the Chestnut personality) and some of the comments I had seen online regarding leather quality. I didn't see any other reviews on the Saddleback site to answer my questions but I liked what I saw and ordered anyway. I'm so glad I did because the negative postings I'd seen are rubbish. The original tobacco brown was a little light for me, and had a little fuzz on it (changed color depending on which way you stroked it). The "new" tobacco has a smooth finish more like the chestnut and is a "medium brown" color that I know will be gorgeous with use. As to the rumor that Dave had lowered quality, I see no such evidence on any of the 3 pieces in my order. I actually have an unused chestnut large bifold that I purchased about 18-24 months ago (just in case they stopped making them) and the thickness and feel is exactly the same. The absolute only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is they are no longer putting the inner "hidden flap" or pigskin lining on the inner part of the billfold section, which I miss. If you weren't expecting it, you'd never know and would be perfectly happy, as I in fact am.

Awesome Large Bi Fold

Damn!, That's all I thought when I opened the package. The quality was there from the moment I touched the wallet. Beautiful leather smell and build, it felt like I had found my new wallet. Being a minimalist kind of guy, I was skeptic to pick up the large bi fold. But after just watching some videos and seeing it, I lusted for it. So i pulled the trigger on a Saturday night and received it on Wednesday (extremely fast shipping). I'm just in love with it and can tell its going to be my wallet for a while.

Note: For all you minimalist kind of guys, this may not be the wallet for you. But after using my Burberry id wallet for so many years, the transition of changing wallet sizes has been mostly seamless.

Beautiful!!!

I have been looking around on this site of a while now and watching all of the videos to get a idea of the craftsmanship. I have a local guy who does wonderful leather work but I decided to buy Dave's wallet. Very impressed. The color is beautiful, the stitching it doubled back on , the feel and smell is just awesome. I I'll buy more, in fact, I want a large Water Bag! It's almost the perfect design!

The best wallet ever

I got the medium bifold wallet in Tobacco brown (older color, not the newly released one).

It is solid. Much more substantial than any other dime-a-dozen wallet. This should last me for the rest of my life, and then some. Everyone should have this wallet.

Best wallet I've ever owned

I received the Medium Bifold wallet in Tobacco Brown last Christmas. (Thanks Art of Manliness for introducing me to Saddleback!)

The construction of the wallet makes me confident that it will literally last forever. The leather is soft and smooth, yet tough as nails. It holds plenty of cards and cash, but remains thin enough to carry comfortably in my back pocket. I have recommended Saddleback to everyone I know.

One of my favorites

I have been using a medium bi-fold for over a year now. I decided on Tobacco as I normally do. I keep the wallet in my backpack most often as I have it packed with 20 credit cards and it becomes think to keep in a pocket. The color and scratches and patina are amazing as they are with all SBL pieces. It just keeps getting better looking

Best wallet I ever had so far!

This wallet is the best quality one I've ever had since I started using leather wallets. The design is really simplistic, nothing fancy, which is rather hard to find out there nowadays. Simplicity is beauty in my opinion and the leather feels better and better as the days go by!

Best quality Leather good I have ever owned.

(Medium Bifold in Dark Coffee Brown). I have been using this product for a few months now and it grows more beautiful everyday! Awesome quality, and fits everything I need on a day to day basis. I will buy the (L) thin briefcase next! Beautiful!

wallet was bent still bent

Great quality although when I recieved medium wallet it was bent, didnt fold even and still doesnt. I was hoping it would break in normal. Maybe I will replace, very suprised they sent bent wallet and stayed bent. 2 stars

Medium Bi-Fold Tobaco Brown

When i got the wallet the first thing i noticed was that it did not stay closed, caused no problems. After having it for about 2 months it closed. All good things need to be worn in for a nice fit to the user. I accidently got pen ink on it and nothing got it out except using a pink erasor on it, the erasor left a faded mark but went away with some use so it wasnt a problem. It is stiff when you first get it and credit cards can be hard to get to but I broke it in and now I have no problems at all. Do not use any oils on it accept what dave recomends cause I used some stuff that badly faded the leather in a spot were I tested it and the fade is still there.

Ideal wallet

This is for the large size:


I live somewhere rugged where the power goes out often and cash is always a necessity. The salt water wore through other wallets too fast. This leather wallet is fantastic in its ability to distribute the items evenly across my back pocket so don't get Costanza syndrome. I carry appx 7 cards spread out through the 4 pockets, and a stack of cash as my emergency fund. It has grown buttery soft and the scuff marks add to its character. I've had more comments and questions about this wallet than any other before. It is a bit over-built, but thats my style (i also carry a ZT0300 daily).

My first wallet that lasted more than 1 year

My mother used to buy me a new leather wallet every Christmas as the lining would always tear and fall apart. Every brand, same result -- the silky liner in the money compartment would rip.

This wallet is lined with pigskin and is beyond tough. No rips, no tears, no signs of weakness. The outside is getting nice an ugly, and I'm sure ill have it a long time.

I think this is the best value of the entire saddleback lineup.

This is awesome

I just got the tobacco brown small bifold and it is so buttery soft I will never switch wallets again hopefully lol but if it break I got the lifetime warranty thanks guys ill tell all my peeps about ya!

Customer Service / Medium Wallet

Dang. I am really impressed not only with the quality of the wallet that I own, but I am also really impressed with this company's customer service. I had a little bit of a problem with my wallet (the wallet was damaging my credit cards and IDs), so, I sent an email over to them asking if this problem is a common occurance. They Returned my email the next morning and completely took care of my problem. If you two read this, thanks Keenan and Pam, you guys rock!

Large Bi-fold wallet

Excellent wallet, I received it a week ago. It has soffened up a tiny bit. I have the chestnut color, and it is a nice color. I have 3 cards in each slot, and about 8 bills (fits dozens of bills) and it has stayed very slim. In some pants it's a little hard to squeeze it out of the pocket. In jeans it's no problem. I wear 514's in 32-30 and the wallet sticks out less than 1/2 of an inch. It's a great wallet and I highly recomed it. Saddleback has great quality wallets, and even better customer service, Jodie and Tim are my favorite :)

The Best Wallet Money Can Buy!

This wallet is nothing but quality. It looks better everyday. I guess I am rough on wallets as I have had to buy new ones about every six months. I can tell that this wallet really will last me a lifetime.

Your Best Company

The most reliable and durable wallet. Been using it for 1 year+, love how its aging and forming. Wont ever change for any other wallets. The best!

Awesome Quality and Great Looks

I bought my wallet a few weeks ago after using a cheaper wallet for a short period of time. This was to replace my other wallet which I had since I was 13 and carried for 13 years. The Saddleback Medium Bifold is awesome. Quality is consistent and durable, looks beautiful and smells like leather.

After reading multiple reviews and seeing a number of posters on AR15.com recommend it, I decided to take the plunge. Well worth the money!

Great Wallet

Just received my wallet in Tobacco beige. This sucker is beautifully made, sturdy and I just love the pigskin lining. The card slots are tight but do adjust with time allowing more card to be added. A bit tight is just fine as it prevents any of my credit cards from falling out. I don't doubt that this thing has a one hundred year warranty. Great product and well worth the sixty bucks.

Best Leather, Period.

Bought my medium Bifold a few months back. Hands down, the best leather purchase I have made. Just by quickly looking at it you can see the quality and craftsmanship that goes into a Saddleback product. No doubt their products will stand the test of time. I'll only buy Saddleback leather goods from now on!

Can't wait!

Just received my first piece from Saddleback Leather! The look, the smell, the quality.... All just as I imagined. I can't wait to see how it looks in a couple years, and have no doubt it will last a lot longer than that. Bravo!

Best wallet ever

Just got this today, and it's the first wallet I've owned where all of the credit card holders are actually usable. Normally, put two cards in, and the third won't fully slide into the slot meant for it. Not this one. It looks, feels, smells and WORKS beautifully.

Best wallet I've ever had.

It started when I opened the box and the strong leather scent hit me. I knew I had something good. It looked good new but now that I've had some time to break it in, it looks fantastic. I got the small and it is exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely be buying Saddleback in the future.

THE. WALLET

I decided on getting the large bi fold in chestnut after a month of wear with my satchel. Same sturdy build...I've been telling people that if they can rip it in half with their bare hands I'll give them$50. You can probably get a hole in it if you chew on a certain spot everyday for an hour.

I LOVE the way it's made from the credit card slots to the cash compartment. Like I said it's extremely sturdy, doubt I'll need another wallet for oh say a hundred years. It breaks in pretty easy, the credit slots are a bit stiff in the beginning but I've been able to put up to 3 cards in each slot. Start with 2 cards, leave them there for a few days and add another. I also like the space behind the credit slots, pretty handy for keeping receipts and stuff. The cash compartment is pretty tall so you can actually keep some gift cards, calling cards in there with your green and they don't stick out.

Loving all the scuffs my wallet has so far and looking forward to a lot more. Great product and definitely worth every cent.

Starting a Tradition

I bought my first (and only) Saddleback medium wallet three years ago. I say only because I truly believe in the quality of this company's products.
My 16yo son passed his driving test today, and will soon have a reason to carry a wallet. His first, and last, is going to be a medium Saddleback in the color of his choosing. I have three sons and a daughter. My daughter is up next. It's really great to have a company here in the States that makes great quality items, and stands behind them. I just hope my daughter doesn't go totally crazy her bag! :P

Got it for my boyfriend and he really likes it

Likes it nice workmanship and color is wonderful very happy

Medium Leather Bifold Wallet

I received my medium bifold wallet today, got the black one. This thing is no joke. The minute you see it in person you'll realize why there's a 100 year warranty. The quality is so far beyond any wallet I've ever owned. $50 is an absolute steal for these! I'm looking forward to years of use. If you're considering buying one but for some strange reason you haven't yet...stop reading this and git 'r done! Thanks Saddleback!

Skeptical on buying a $50 wallet? Don't be

I was apprehensive to spend the $50 on a quality wallet. I've been getting the $12 cheap leather wallets for years, so I decided to splurge. And now I know I'll never have to buy another wallet again. I got the medium in Tobacco, and it is one finely made piece. The pockets accommodate 2 cards each right now, and I don't feel like they'll damage the cards at all (Not too tight). I stuffed about $30 in $1s into it for feel, and it didn't bulge and splay out like cheapy wallets.

Very happy with my purchase.

It feels right

I purchased the large bi-fold; it is large for a wallet. BUT, it fits in my front pocket fine, no crazy printing of a huge chunk of leather. I can fit my essential cards (ID, pictures of my kids and wife), and I can still fit the Swiss Army multi-tool card and a pocket wrench, as well as copious amounts of green backs..OK, just 50 bucks, but that's really all I need for emergencies. This wallet rocks! When I meet my super stingy high school friend at the range (been using the same "leather" wallet since high school (15 years ago), I can one up him. And I plan to keep doing that every few years.

This is the last wallet I will buy for myself, but my dad might need one... You got a fan here, keep doing what you??????re doing and I don't see why we can't find a reason to buy quality leather from you here on out.

Addiction

Quality of the leather and customer service is amazing for the price. Even though I'm from Canada and have to pay a little more for shipping, it is well worth it. I bought a tobacco medium bifold to test out the leather initially and now am the proud owner of a medium classic briefcase, a few simple wallet sleeves, and the medium bifold. Currently saving up for a large satchel

A simple, classic, rugged wallet.

I have had this wallet (medium bifold) for two years now and absolutely love it. The original smell of the leather was absolutely wonderful. It has, over time, taken on the perfect shape to fit my back pocket and holds everything I need to carry. It is the slightest bit thicker than my previous wallet, but not overly so, and will probably prove itself to be the most durable wallet I have ever owned. I carried my last wallet daily for 12 years and am sure this one will outlast that by many years. I really love this wallet. I wish I had a good reason to buy another one.

Medium Wallet

I had a Hartman bifold wallet that I had bought when we were shopping for luggage back in early 2000, when I saw the wallet I thought it was the best looking wallet I had ever seen of all the wallets I had looked at, I work in the construction field and I am very hard on everything I have and use, needless to say the wallet held up for thirteen years and when it was time to replace it I went looking for another Hartman, they had proved themselves to meat that time. unfortunately I could not find the luggage shop where I had bought the wallet or anything similar to what I had, since I prefer a bifold wallet, upon some rather long research I had come upon your website and was researching the items that you have, I ordered the medium bifold wallet I guess about 6 months or so ago and when I first got it, it was about the stiffest wallet I had ever had in leather

Unreal

This is an absolutely insane wallet. I am walking on air thinking I may have finally found a wallet that will LAST! I have gone through a dozen wallets in as many years, disgusted with supposed "quality" materials. My last one was made out of tyvek, supposedly tougher than leather. HA! In its defense, it did last several years before the herculean task of using it started to wear a hole. This Saddleback wallet, on the other hand, already shows the hallmarks of something that I will want to be buried with. It was stiff and unyielding as concrete when I first got it, but it is wearing in and softening nicely. I can easily slide my credit cards into the slots, instead of fighting them in (and losing). It is still tough sliding currency in and out, although it is gradually getting easier. A thin currency divider in the middle would have been nice, but given how thick and stiff each sheet of leather is, I am more than willing to overlook this minor difficulty. It is a small price to pay for quality of this level!

The genuine article

Most wallets are flimsy, poorly constructed envelopes. The manufacturers try to hide this lack of quality behind a fancy brand name or flashy design. Not the Saddleback wallet. The Saddleback wallet, like all Saddleback products, is made to last. You need to make an investment of time to make it become a part of you; to develop a patina that reflects who you are. By the time the typical wallet is falling apart, the Saddleback wallet is just starting to take shape to your pocket. Like the description says: "Nobody will comment on your wallet -this year." Years from now, I expect my wallet to be a familiar friend, and when seen, suggest that I am a person who values durability and longevity but still has a sense of style. I'm convinced that if Hemingway or (Teddy) Roosevelt were around today, they would use Saddleback Leather goods.

Medium Bifold - Tobacco Brown

I have had the Medium Bifold (in Tobacco brown) now for about 3 months.

First off, the quality seems great, leather was nice to start with and is already aging well. I look forward to a year or two from now when I'll get some true patina. On my last wallet is was the stitching that eventually gave out, so I'm trusting to Saddleback's guarantee that it'll last a lifetime. It does seem very well constructed.
On that note: the smell of fine leather is beautiful. Even after 3 months this wallet has that new genuine leather smell. I love it.

And for the negative: apparently the added logo on the exterior is a recent addition. This wallet would be VERY much better with a clean look. I'm fine with a logo on the inside (there is a cute dog-looking thing there now), but the branding on the exterior is unnecessary and really detracts from the product.
Hence the 4 stars.

But, overall, so far so good. I'm only 3 months in. After 3 years I'm sure I can write a better review.

Rugged and Durable

First of all, the shipping was extremely fast! It took 5 days for the wallet to get from Texas to Afghanistan. I purchased the Large Bifold Wallet. It looks pretty big at first, but it fits in my back pockets perfectly. My credit cards will finally stop breaking on the bar code, because the cards don't overlap eachother! I love the wallet and I would recommend you purchase this ASAP. A great price as well!

ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT

10:42PM 03/11

Just received the medium bifold wallet in carbon black about 30 mins ago and you can just feels the quality when you first hold it. I'm not a leather fetish but I can tell that its a good product. Its tough with very rough texture. Went back to the website to buy the other 2 card holder, the Chamberlain Milk & to write this review. I hope to get it rubbed down so it shines as it ages.

Btw, please expedite my second order. I need it before my trip on the 03/16!

Thanks!

Great Wallet

In a little over a year I've from no Saddleback products to a messenger bag, pouch, clutch purse ( for Mom ) and now the medium billfold ... all in DCB.

This wallet is great ... softer than I thought it would be and the pockets weren't as tight as I feared either. It is making me reevaluate what I keep in my wallet BUT that's a good thing ... clearing up the clutter is a good thing.

It lays flatter than other wallets and slides in the back pocket easier. The quality of course is second to none, just like everything else you guys make.

Hope my Simple Backpack is as flawless when I order that this year ;P

Thanks Dave & Co. !!!!

I ROBBED DAVE!!!!

To be clear I technically didn't rob Dave nor anyone for that matter, however I purchased the med. bifold wallet from dave's deals and the quality of the wallet plus the 25% discount was indeed a steal. The rule of thumb according to Dave was about 25 feet away defines the discount, however no one at my office or I could find the defect. I am so satisfied with the wallet, that I may hang it around my neck as a trophy. Thank you to Dave and his family as well as his saddleback family for truly offering something worth our every cent.

P.S. sorry for only rating this product 5 stars however thats as high as you let us rate it Dave.

Well made, great quality & good price

Got to know this Brand from a vendor of mine, saw his backbpack bought from here, are of great quality. Out of curiousity, bought my self a medium Bifold wallet.

Upon opening the package, could see and feel the wallet is very well made and of great quality. Could tell that it will outlast any of my previous wallets. Simply loving it.

The customer services is great too, they did send me email to verify if package has been received when there was delivery tracking issues.

Thanks Saddlebackleather :)

Medium Bi-Fold Eats Cards Alive

I own the medium bifold wallet and have used it for two years now. It is every bit as solid and great-looking as everyone else claims. However, there is a single major drawback to the medium bifold: it *shreds* cards.

Because the wallet's leather is so thick, when you put this thing in your back pocket and sit on it, the cards get bent quite a bit. Within a couple months, you'll start to find cracks in your cards from all the stress. (I don't have the wallet stuffed -- I keep a single card in each of the slots and only a few bills in the money section.)

As awesome as the wallet looks and as rugged as it is, I can't recommend the medium bifold. I'm considering ditching it for the small version, which I believe will bend my cards less because there are only two pockets and they aren't stacked on top of one another.

Simply great!

I got my medium Tobacco bi-fold and realize I have been robbed of the joy of searching for new things to buy. I will never need another wallet unless it is to buy another like it in a different color. Initially I bought the large bi-fold, not realizing the emphasis placed on the word 'large', so I returned it for a medium. I carry my wallet in my front pocket, both for security reasons and comfort, so any concerns with cards cracking will not be an issue. I could get two cards in a slot easily although I took the opportunity of transferring everything from a crappy Relic wallet to my new Saddleback to pitch things I didn't need to carry. I would have preferred the Saddleback embossing to not be on the outside of the wallet but rather the inside, but that's me :) All in all, a great wallet. These things hold their resale value amazingly well judging by the prices of used SLC products on fleeBay. Thanks Dave!

Reliable and High Quality

I have the small bifold. This is a great wallet! I've had it since Christmas 2012 and it has softened a lot and darkened slightly, and it looks great. I have 3 cards in each pocket at the moment and they fit easily. I just checked and I could squeeze all 6 into the one pocket. so if you have lots of cards it will still fit them all. Its very thin as well, so it doesn't really stick out in my pocket. Mine has been in a bag with wet gear and dried out as though it didn't happen. I've taken it daily to school for a year and 4 months and it's still going well!

Medium Bifold

I've had my wallet for a month or two now and I could not be more thrilled. I have not had the issue with my cards cracking which was a problem with my previous wallet. My only complaint is I can't justify by another wallet for myself so I will have to live instead with the joy of giving them as gifts. I can't wait for this thing to get old with me.

Two weeks and it's lookin' good!

I got the small sized wallet because I had a front pocket wallet for so long I didn't know if I would like a wallet in my back pocket. Initially I was concerned about how thick it would be but it has been two and a half weeks and I barely notice it. The only thing "bad" per se is how stiff it was and still is. It is getting much better with use but you have to stuff the bills to get them in there at first. Now this really isn't a bad thing since the company tells you right off the bat they don't tenderize the leather. You have to break it in and that's pretty cool. I have no doubt mine will last 100+ years.

perfect, classic, heirloom

After many years, different wallets, money clips and styles, I began the search for the products that I would bequeath to sons. By sheer luck, I stumbled upon Saddleback. I decided to start small - with a wallet. I purchased the large bifold and it is perfect, far superior to my coach medium bifold id wallet. the coach lasted 5 years before it needed retirement. I expect a lifetime out of the Saddleback. it is superior in every way, from the quality of the leather, to the color, to the manufacturing. It is larger than a normal wallet, but I knew that, and it fits my frame. In sum, this was the perfect place to start as I'm hooked on Saddleback.

Great Piece of Leather

Got my medium wallet today. It's a very nice piece of leather. Holds all my cards just fine. Expect it to last about as long as I do.

Large but thin!

I purchased the large bifold through Dave's Deals. The wallet looked perfect, and I couldn't figure out why it was marked off 25%. It was missing the money flap. I was disappointed at first, but it proved to be a blessing. I carry 8 cards, and I wanted a bifold with the thinnest profile. The money flap would have added a tiny bit more bulk for a feature I didn't need. The large bifold does take up a lot of space in my back pocket, but I barely notice it's there. The large fits in the back pocket of all my shorts and pants. Sliding my cards to the center of the wallet gives me peace of mind. I've owned wallets like the medium bifold and had cards fall out from the top of the wallet. Not to mention the infamous cracking of the credit cards. I don't believe this will be an issue with this wallet. I highly recommend the large bifold, and I would gladly buy this wallet again without the money flap.

Best Bifold Wallet I have ever had

I ordered one of the Medium Bifold Wallets in Tobacco for my Partner for his Birthday and he loved it. I Then ordered an identical wallet for myself since I needed a new wallet as well. These two wallets are by far the best wallets I have ever seen.

I have looked all over for a good, high quality wallet that feels good as well as looks good. This one fits the bill to a T! Superb materials, excellent quality, and just holding it feels amazing. The silky smoothness of the leather and the smell, Oh my word the heavenly smell!!

It fits my cards perfectly, yet snugly. No worrying about cards falling out or things going flying if you drop this. Looking forward to carrying this around in my pocket for the next 60 or so years. Thanks so much Dave!!! You folks make me happy to see there is still a company who takes genuine pride in the product, and the customer. Definitely ordering more from Saddleback in the upcoming months as money permits.

incredible

I've had the medium dark coffee brown bifold for almost 2 years and it looks even better! still smells amazing, everything has softened up. just buy it, you won't regret the decision.

Love it.

I got my small bifold today. It is awesome. I was on the hunt for "my" wallet for years. I bought wallets all over the world. In Germany, Italy, Cyprus, Spain and France. I wasn't able to find a wallet I wanted to keep for longer than a year.
I'm sure I found it with the Saddleback wallet. It already looks amazing and has more character to it than every wallet I ever owned before.
I ordered it in Tabacco Brown and can't wait to see the patina.

Best Wallet Ever Owned

This is the best wallet that I have ever owned. I highly recommend this wallet to anyone who is looking for their next wallet. I've had the LG Bifold Wallet a little over a year now, and I couldn't be more satisfied.

Fantastic!

I have now possessed the bi-fold wallet for two years and I absolutely love it. It coffee coloured and the more time passes by the better it gets! The leather is of excellent quality and with the pigskin liner its as sturdy as ever but yet a classy appearance. No sign of wear ony a gradual maturing look. Five stars for sure!

Give it a try, you won't regret it!

When I first recieved this, I hated it. I thought it was way to thick with all my cards in it. I carry 3 cards on each side. However, after around 5 months now, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. The wallet has definitely gotten thinner, and has formed to my back pocket so it feels very comfortable when I sit down. I got the wallet in the dark coffee brown, but I would probably get the tobacco brown instead, just because of how the tobacco brown will end up looking like after around 6 months of use.

Excellent Quality and value

When I bought my wallet a year ago I was thinking $50 was a pretty a good deal for a quality wallet. I was wrong, it is a incredable deal, it's a really, really well made wallet.
Mine has been in the lake once on a fishing trip and accidentially washed once and has no damage at all, in fact it is barely broken in. All the seams are still perfect, none of the threads are loose or unraveling, none of the stitching is tearing the leather, the saddleback logo and blue's outline are still just as clear as when it was new. I'm really impressed and I definetly will be buying more from saddleback.

Best Ever!!!

I have bought and used the i.d. wallet, large, medium, and small bi-fold. The quality of the leather is outstanding! After using each wallet for a year I have decided That my small tobacco brown bi-fold is "my" wallet. The size and color is amazing and it definitely gets better with age.

I have gifted my small black bi-fold to my 16 year old son who has been using the wallet for 2 years and he loves it!

I also gave my coffee brown i.d. wallet to my 19 year old daughter and she loves it as well!

I use my other large and medium coffee brown bi-folds for credit cards and business cards that I don't need to carry everyday.

My cousin saw our wallets and immediately bought a large and medium bi-fold in carbon black.

I just purchased a black tow belt for work since I need a sturdy belt for my holster...can't wait!

Great Wallet

I have had the medium sized bifold wallet now for two years and it has held up to the wear and tear of everyday use. It continues to look better the longer I own it! Saddleback is a great company that cares about making quality products! Y'all rock!

Best Wallet Ever!

I have a few of Dave's items (including the credit card wallet) but moved to a city where cash is used more often than credit cards, so it was time to get a new wallet.

I am still amazed at the quality of Saddleback Leather's products. The wallet fits everything I need it to (small bifold) and fits easily in my front pocket.

Thanks for making another great product! I'll be buying more soon.

Small bifold wallet

I received my small bifold a few day ago. My medium size wallet was stolen which contained everything. I felt stupid and targeted. I got a police case number and made phone calls and online notifications to protect my identity. Saddleback is an awesome company with excellent leather product and outstanding customer service. The small bifold is perfect as I now carry the wallet in the front pocket.

Last Wallet?

I used to get a new wallet at the dept. store every year or so. This year when my Ralph Lauren started to fall apart I decided I was going to spend a little more and get something that would last a while longer. At first I was looking at a Bellroy from Huckberry, but Mrs. wouldn't go for $90 for a wallet. Then I looked at a Mulholland for about $75, but found they were made in China, and though I'm not anti-China, at $75 for a premium product I feel like I'm paying for the name not the product. So I stumbled on Saddleback through Art of Manliness.

After reading about the company, Dave, Blue, the 100 year warranty, and talking to Liz on the chat I decided the medium bi-fold was for me. The smell is almost intoxicating, reminds me of saddles at a nice western store/tack shop. I really believe this thing will last 100 years, and would recommend it to anyone!

Built for the long haul

Empty, or just with cash and an ID, this wallet is pretty slim. Fill all 6 card slots and it gets pretty fat. The thick leather of the card sleeves make it bulge out when cards are in it. It has barely begun to flatten out after 6 months - a good sign for longevity.

For now it is a bit problematic because it broke 2 credit cards at the point where they are exposed above the pocket. For this reason I'd recommend putting your cards in upside down so the magnetic strip is down in the pocket so if the card does crack, it's not along the strip.

Also, this bulging from the cards causes the wallet to close at an angle. This has gotten worse as it breaks in. It wouldn't be a problem if it didn't leave the top of a card exposed.

Overall it's a great wallet, but just be ready for it to be fatter than your current wallet (even with 1/2 as many cards).

Best Wallet I have ever owned

I purchased my wallet many, many years ago when Saddleback first hit the internet. I was looking for something different and when I say different I mean older style tough leather and would last me a long time.

I havent been disappointed. This wallet has been with me across a number of countries and even went for a swim in the Pacific ocean when I forgot to take it out.

I have no trouble with cards , money , ID anything and it is very comfortable as it took on my shape.

I carry two cards in each slot and have never had an issue, I would recommend these to anyone wanting a lasting wallet.

Best thing I can say is the wallet looks great has aged well. The wallet is still very strong in its construction, the leather has not weakened anywhere, yes it does have some makes or scratches on it now but they just add to its look.

I have only once had to put some leather conditioner on the wallet but that was my fault - due to that swim I mentioned.

Thanks Dave.

Awesome

I can say after 1 year of constant use this wallet is almost as it was when it arrived. It takes alot to break in this bad boy!
I feal every one as they choke on Dave's prices~ If you look at it with the vision that Dave's product is 100% garenteed for life then you will see a great value!
I am ready for a new Saddleback product.

Great Wallet.

I read all the reviews here about the Leather Bifold Wallet and decided to order one. My last wallet was a Coach wallet. I wasn't happy with it because I kept having to add more cards to each slot to keep it "tight" so they would not fall out. After a year I had 6 cards in ONE slot! Even then they would fall out as it stretched.

The SaddleBack wallet is MUCH better built. The material and color is gorgeous. I got the Medium Bifold in Tobacco color. I was concerned about the color because you never know if what you see on your monitor will look the same. When I opened it up though I could not have been happier with my color choice. It is awesome.

I can see the construction is more solid than any wallet I've owned not that it matters with 100 year warranty! LOL. I can now put one or two cards in and it holds them in securely. This may be the last wallet I ever own. Glad I found SaddleBack.

BEST WALLET I HAVE EVER OWNED!!

This is the first time I have purchased a wallet from someplace other than a department store. I have gone through almost ten of those and I think my Saddleback will last several lifetimes.

I have had my Tobacco large bifold for about a month now and it is starting to break in nicely and is also starting to develop a beautiful patina. I know it will continue to get better and better with time.

I have stretched the card pockets (by adding a card every few days) so that I am up to 7 cards in each pocket on the left side. I use the right pockets for a credit card sized cellphone battery/charger (about 5 cards thick) and the other one for a credit card sized phone charger cable (about 2 cards thick).

EACH card pocket will easily hold 8 or more cards as long as you work up to it over time.

I dont carry cash so I have a metal business card case in the cash pocket on the left side and some other things in right side of the cash pocket.

I am VERY picky and... I LOVE THIS WALLET!!!

I wish I found it before wasting my money on every other wallet thats lasted me only a few years.

THANKS FOR MAKING A QUALITY PRODUCT!!

Best Wallet Made

I work in the Fire Service and have gone through countless wallets in the past. I am hard on anything in my pocket. The Saddleback wallet has not only held up to the abuse, it just keeps looking better and better with age. Thank you for offering such a great well made product in a disposable world.

Godspeed
Eric

GROW UP AND DUMP THE PLEATHER!

After spending the last 38 years buying a "pleather" wallet from the Men's Department of Sears, I purchased a Large Bifold Wallet in Tobacco Brown.

I have had the wallet for about three months now and it just keeps getting better- both in utility and appearance. The card slots have begun to "stretch" just a bit, but not to the point that anything could fall out. I currently keep four cards in each of the pockets and copious amounts of paper in the main "cash" area. NOTHING has ever fallen out by accident.

While functionally it is perfect, the beautiful finish of the leather is probably my favorite part. As a father, I can't wait to see what it will look like when I give it to my son some day...not too soon though!

Thanks for an amazing product.

Can't beat the quality and can't beat the price

I ordered a chestnut bifold and an ID wallet of the same color to see which best suited my use and preference. This one worked better for me as a more "traditional" style wallet. The leather quality is outstanding, as good as it could be. I was looking at a Coach wallet for 3x the price of the SBL Bifold and started researching other companies. Not only is this wallet better initial quality than the Coach and other "brand name" companies' wallets I was looking at for a third of the price, clearly very tough, well-made, and top quality leather, I can tell it will wear more "naturally" over time and look even better with age as Dave says in all the videos. This was my first Saddleback Leather purchase and I will certainly be back for more soon as as time goes by. I will never buy another "genuine leather" wallet (or good, if I can avoid it) again. Buying one (or two to mix up the color at some point) of these to last forever will definitely be cheaper and better than buying multiple cheap, genuine leather wallets over a life time.

As a side note, returning the ID wallet was very easy and customer service (I spoke with Liz) is probably the nicest and most sincere of any company customer service I've ever spoken with. Thanks for producing great products and standing up for the right things!

Finally, for those struggling to pick color like I did, I've noticed many on the internet have questions as to how red the tint of the chestnut is. Mine had very little red out of the envelope and a few weeks of daily use/handling has presented a few lighting situations that expose the hint of red in the leather, but it is minimal and even pleasant. The color recommendations Dave has on the website are, for the most part, scary accurate.

After buying this, I couldn't recommend any other wallet, even those that are far more than 3x the price for this!

Got the Large leather bifold for my boyfriend and he couldn't be happier!

He complains about buying a wallet every year and all of them giving out. For fathers day I decided I wanted to get him something that last, I got him the Large Bifold Wallet. At first he was a little hesitant about it cause the pockets seemed tight but after he realized they stretch to fit and that he can fit all his junk cards in his one wallet! Haha.

Cant beat this quality

I cant tell you how happy i am with the medium tobacco brown wallet. I show it off everywhere and yet it can be thick I still put it in my back pocket and its not horribly uncomfortable. After 2 weeks its starting to get broken in. Still smells like leather and wouldnt suggest any other wallet. In the near future Ill be purchasing the id wallet for my father.
Thanks DAVE!!

Oozes Quality

As a young attorney in Colorado, I need no-nonsense, quality gear that won't fail on me and is fittingly low-key for a Western Professional. However, it needs to be tough enough to handle an active recreational lifestyle.

I am extremely impressed with my new Carbon Black, Medium-sized Bifold Wallet. I have only had it a day or two and it is a massive improvement over my worn Fossil wallet. The exceptional warranty means I can use it without worry, but it feels tough enough that I doubt I'll ever need to use the warranty.

I am very satisfied with Saddleback.

I've bought my last wallet!

Have just received my Carbon Black Bi-Fold medium wallet, everything as promised and I just love it. It is obviously still stiff and tight being new and I look forward to breaking it in.
I have loaded it with 6 credit cards, ID, driving licence, 6 business cards, 10 bills and even in its present state do not find it uncomfortable in my rear pocket.
Top quality product as is their customer service, thank you Tessa, Tiffany and Cinnamon.
Wish I was forty years younger, I'm sure it will outlast me!

Best wallet I've ever owned!

I just received my small bifold in chestnut to replace my lost medium bifold. I love the quality and craftsmanship. It is second to none. While I hated losing my medium bifold I replaced it with the small because I wanted something a bit lower profile. I am so glad I did and I couldn't be happier! Saddleback is exactly the type of company I love to support. They represent top of line with no compromises. Keep up the great work!

Finally a replacement for my 15 year old Hartmann wallet!

For the past 15 years, I've carried a large Hartmann vegetable-tanned wallet in natural Canadian belting leather. It is almost the exact same design and color as the SBL Large Bifold Wallet in Tobacco Brown. As my Hartmann's good looks were beginning to fade, I started looking everywhere for this same two row design (Hartmann discontinued it years ago).

I only found two options - SBL's and a black wallet on hammacher.com of unknown quality leather and cheap stitching. The very detailed product page for the SBL wallet made the decision very easy.

I think I paid around $120 for the Hartmann wallet 15 years ago, and it was worth every penny. I could carry it for another 15 years, but I just happened upon the SBL website and got excited about upgrading, since it has been so difficult to find this same style. For anyone who thinks the large wallet is overkill, let me tell you that it is well worth the switch. Your wallet will be thinner and more comfortable than it has been with the same number of cards, because there is less overlap. Also, the two row design allows a natural flex point half way down that allows the wallet to cradle your butt when you wear it without bending any cards.

Buy the Leather Bifold Wallet in the large size. You will not regret it. Personally, I like the lightest color (Tobacco Brown), because it shows the most natural characteristics of the leather and should develop the most attractive patina as the years pass by.

While I have a few suggestions for SBL to make this wallet absolutely perfect in every way, it definitely deserves 5 starts as it is. Here is what I would suggest to improve the wallet:

1. Provide a very light "natural" aniline dye option, so that the lustrous patina can start from as blank a slate as possible.
2. Offer a 100% vegetable-tanned belting leather option. Hartmann used to offer this awesome leather, but their new "belting leather" isn't near as good as their older wallets from years ago. By offering this ultra-premium leather, SBL would fulfill the needs of wallet snobs like me around the world.
3. Offer 2 card slots in each of the 4 sections of the wallet with the top card slot slightly offset from the slot beneath it to make removing cards easier. There is no need for the large pockets the SBL wallet (due to the large cash compartment), so adding extra slots for cards wouldn't make the wallet any thicker.
4. Add a panel in the cash compartment that divides it into top and bottom halves. The 2nd section would only go down half way allowing the user to put cash/checks in the bottom of the wallet and other cash/checks in the 2nd compartment in the top half in order to evenly distribute the thickness between the top and bottom.

Make these enhancements and I'll buy 50 of them for gifts and to ensure I have them for the rest of my life and my grandkids' lives! Thank you SBL for providing the best quality workmanship found anywhere. I'll be a customer for many years to come.

Empty, or just with cash and an ID, this wallet is pretty slim. Fill all 6 card slots and it gets pretty fat. The thick leather of the card sleeves make it bulge out when cards are in it. It has barely begun to flatten out after 6 months - a good sign for longevity.

Overall it's a great wallet, but just be ready for it to be fatter than your current wallet (even with 1/2 as many cards).

Large Bi-fold wallet

Excellent wallet, I received it a week ago. It has soffened up a tiny bit. I have the chestnut color, and it is a nice color. I have 3 cards in each slot, and about 8 bills (fits dozens of bills) and it has stayed very slim. In some pants it's a little hard to squeeze it out of the pocket. In jeans it's no problem. I wear 514's in 32-30 and the wallet sticks out less than 1/2 of an inch. It's a great wallet and I highly recomed it. Saddleback has great quality wallets, and even better customer service, Jodie and Tim are my favorite :)

THE. WALLET

I decided on getting the large bi fold in chestnut after a month of wear with my satchel. Same sturdy build...I've been telling people that if they can rip it in half with their bare hands I'll give them$50. You can probably get a hole in it if you chew on a certain spot everyday for an hour.

I LOVE the way it's made from the credit card slots to the cash compartment. Like I said it's extremely sturdy, doubt I'll need another wallet for oh say a hundred years. It breaks in pretty easy, the credit slots are a bit stiff in the beginning but I've been able to put up to 3 cards in each slot. Start with 2 cards, leave them there for a few days and add another. I also like the space behind the credit slots, pretty handy for keeping receipts and stuff. The cash compartment is pretty tall so you can actually keep some gift cards, calling cards in there with your green and they don't stick out.

Loving all the scuffs my wallet has so far and looking forward to a lot more. Great product and definitely worth every cent.

Starting a Tradition

I bought my first (and only) Saddleback medium wallet three years ago. I say only because I truly believe in the quality of this company's products.
My 16yo son passed his driving test today, and will soon have a reason to carry a wallet. His first, and last, is going to be a medium Saddleback in the color of his choosing. I have three sons and a daughter. My daughter is up next. It's really great to have a company here in the States that makes great quality items, and stands behind them. I just hope my daughter doesn't go totally crazy her bag! :P

It feels right

I purchased the large bi-fold; it is large for a wallet. BUT, it fits in my front pocket fine, no crazy printing of a huge chunk of leather. I can fit my essential cards (ID, pictures of my kids and wife), and I can still fit the Swiss Army multi-tool card and a pocket wrench, as well as copious amounts of green backs..OK, just 50 bucks, but that's really all I need for emergencies. This wallet rocks! When I meet my super stingy high school friend at the range (been using the same "leather" wallet since high school (15 years ago), I can one up him. And I plan to keep doing that every few years.

This is the last wallet I will buy for myself, but my dad might need one... You got a fan here, keep doing what you’re doing and I don't see why we can't find a reason to buy quality leather from you here on out.

Medium Bifold - Tobacco Brown

I have had the Medium Bifold (in Tobacco brown) now for about 3 months.

First off, the quality seems great, leather was nice to start with and is already aging well. I look forward to a year or two from now when I'll get some true patina. On my last wallet is was the stitching that eventually gave out, so I'm trusting to Saddleback's guarantee that it'll last a lifetime. It does seem very well constructed.
On that note: the smell of fine leather is beautiful. Even after 3 months this wallet has that new genuine leather smell. I love it.

And for the negative: apparently the added logo on the exterior is a recent addition. This wallet would be VERY much better with a clean look. I'm fine with a logo on the inside (there is a cute dog-looking thing there now), but the branding on the exterior is unnecessary and really detracts from the product.
Hence the 4 stars.

But, overall, so far so good. I'm only 3 months in. After 3 years I'm sure I can write a better review.

Well made, great quality & good price

Got to know this Brand from a vendor of mine, saw his backbpack bought from here, are of great quality. Out of curiousity, bought my self a medium Bifold wallet.

Upon opening the package, could see and feel the wallet is very well made and of great quality. Could tell that it will outlast any of my previous wallets. Simply loving it.

The customer services is great too, they did send me email to verify if package has been received when there was delivery tracking issues.

Thanks Saddlebackleather :)

Medium Bi-Fold Eats Cards Alive

I own the medium bifold wallet and have used it for two years now. It is every bit as solid and great-looking as everyone else claims. However, there is a single major drawback to the medium bifold: it *shreds* cards.

Because the wallet's leather is so thick, when you put this thing in your back pocket and sit on it, the cards get bent quite a bit. Within a couple months, you'll start to find cracks in your cards from all the stress. (I don't have the wallet stuffed -- I keep a single card in each of the slots and only a few bills in the money section.)

As awesome as the wallet looks and as rugged as it is, I can't recommend the medium bifold. I'm considering ditching it for the small version, which I believe will bend my cards less because there are only two pockets and they aren't stacked on top of one another.

Best Wallet Ever Owned

This is the best wallet that I have ever owned. I highly recommend this wallet to anyone who is looking for their next wallet. I've had the LG Bifold Wallet a little over a year now, and I couldn't be more satisfied.

BEST WALLET I HAVE EVER OWNED!!

This is the first time I have purchased a wallet from someplace other than a department store. I have gone through almost ten of those and I think my Saddleback will last several lifetimes.

I have had my Tobacco large bifold for about a month now and it is starting to break in nicely and is also starting to develop a beautiful patina. I know it will continue to get better and better with time.

I wish I found it before wasting my money on every other wallet thats lasted me only a few years.

THANKS FOR MAKING A QUALITY PRODUCT!!

Best wallet I've ever owned

I received the Medium Bifold wallet in Tobacco Brown last Christmas. (Thanks Art of Manliness for introducing me to Saddleback!)

The construction of the wallet makes me confident that it will literally last forever. The leather is soft and smooth, yet tough as nails. It holds plenty of cards and cash, but remains thin enough to carry comfortably in my back pocket. I have recommended Saddleback to everyone I know.

Best quality Leather good I have ever owned.

(Medium Bifold in Dark Coffee Brown). I have been using this product for a few months now and it grows more beautiful everyday! Awesome quality, and fits everything I need on a day to day basis. I will buy the (L) thin briefcase next! Beautiful!

Best wallet I ever had so far!

This wallet is the best quality one I've ever had since I started using leather wallets. The design is really simplistic, nothing fancy, which is rather hard to find out there nowadays. Simplicity is beauty in my opinion and the leather feels better and better as the days go by!

wallet was bent still bent

Great quality although when I recieved medium wallet it was bent, didnt fold even and still doesnt. I was hoping it would break in normal. Maybe I will replace, very suprised they sent bent wallet and stayed bent. 2 stars

Medium Bi-Fold Tobaco Brown

When i got the wallet the first thing i noticed was that it did not stay closed, caused no problems. After having it for about 2 months it closed. All good things need to be worn in for a nice fit to the user. I accidently got pen ink on it and nothing got it out except using a pink erasor on it, the erasor left a faded mark but went away with some use so it wasnt a problem. It is stiff when you first get it and credit cards can be hard to get to but I broke it in and now I have no problems at all. Do not use any oils on it accept what dave recomends cause I used some stuff that badly faded the leather in a spot were I tested it and the fade is still there.

My first wallet that lasted more than 1 year

My mother used to buy me a new leather wallet every Christmas as the lining would always tear and fall apart. Every brand, same result -- the silky liner in the money compartment would rip.

This wallet is lined with pigskin and is beyond tough. No rips, no tears, no signs of weakness. The outside is getting nice an ugly, and I'm sure ill have it a long time.

I think this is the best value of the entire saddleback lineup.

This is awesome

I just got the tobacco brown small bifold and it is so buttery soft I will never switch wallets again hopefully lol but if it break I got the lifetime warranty thanks guys ill tell all my peeps about ya!

Customer Service / Medium Wallet

Dang. I am really impressed not only with the quality of the wallet that I own, but I am also really impressed with this company's customer service. I had a little bit of a problem with my wallet (the wallet was damaging my credit cards and IDs), so, I sent an email over to them asking if this problem is a common occurance. They Returned my email the next morning and completely took care of my problem. If you two read this, thanks Keenan and Pam, you guys rock!

The Best Wallet Money Can Buy!

This wallet is nothing but quality. It looks better everyday. I guess I am rough on wallets as I have had to buy new ones about every six months. I can tell that this wallet really will last me a lifetime.

Awesome Quality and Great Looks

I bought my wallet a few weeks ago after using a cheaper wallet for a short period of time. This was to replace my other wallet which I had since I was 13 and carried for 13 years. The Saddleback Medium Bifold is awesome. Quality is consistent and durable, looks beautiful and smells like leather.

After reading multiple reviews and seeing a number of posters on AR15.com recommend it, I decided to take the plunge. Well worth the money!

Great Wallet

Just received my wallet in Tobacco beige. This sucker is beautifully made, sturdy and I just love the pigskin lining. The card slots are tight but do adjust with time allowing more card to be added. A bit tight is just fine as it prevents any of my credit cards from falling out. I don't doubt that this thing has a one hundred year warranty. Great product and well worth the sixty bucks.

Best Leather, Period.

Bought my medium Bifold a few months back. Hands down, the best leather purchase I have made. Just by quickly looking at it you can see the quality and craftsmanship that goes into a Saddleback product. No doubt their products will stand the test of time. I'll only buy Saddleback leather goods from now on!

Can't wait!

Just received my first piece from Saddleback Leather! The look, the smell, the quality.... All just as I imagined. I can't wait to see how it looks in a couple years, and have no doubt it will last a lot longer than that. Bravo!

Best wallet ever

Just got this today, and it's the first wallet I've owned where all of the credit card holders are actually usable. Normally, put two cards in, and the third won't fully slide into the slot meant for it. Not this one. It looks, feels, smells and WORKS beautifully.

Medium Leather Bifold Wallet

I received my medium bifold wallet today, got the black one. This thing is no joke. The minute you see it in person you'll realize why there's a 100 year warranty. The quality is so far beyond any wallet I've ever owned. $50 is an absolute steal for these! I'm looking forward to years of use. If you're considering buying one but for some strange reason you haven't yet...stop reading this and git 'r done! Thanks Saddleback!

Got it for my boyfriend and he really likes it

Likes it nice workmanship and color is wonderful very happy

Skeptical on buying a $50 wallet? Don't be

I was apprehensive to spend the $50 on a quality wallet. I've been getting the $12 cheap leather wallets for years, so I decided to splurge. And now I know I'll never have to buy another wallet again. I got the medium in Tobacco, and it is one finely made piece. The pockets accommodate 2 cards each right now, and I don't feel like they'll damage the cards at all (Not too tight). I stuffed about $30 in $1s into it for feel, and it didn't bulge and splay out like cheapy wallets.

Very happy with my purchase.

A simple, classic, rugged wallet.

I have had this wallet (medium bifold) for two years now and absolutely love it. The original smell of the leather was absolutely wonderful. It has, over time, taken on the perfect shape to fit my back pocket and holds everything I need to carry. It is the slightest bit thicker than my previous wallet, but not overly so, and will probably prove itself to be the most durable wallet I have ever owned. I carried my last wallet daily for 12 years and am sure this one will outlast that by many years. I really love this wallet. I wish I had a good reason to buy another one.

Addiction

Quality of the leather and customer service is amazing for the price. Even though I'm from Canada and have to pay a little more for shipping, it is well worth it. I bought a tobacco medium bifold to test out the leather initially and now am the proud owner of a medium classic briefcase, a few simple wallet sleeves, and the medium bifold. Currently saving up for a large satchel

Medium Wallet

I had a Hartman bifold wallet that I had bought when we were shopping for luggage back in early 2000, when I saw the wallet I thought it was the best looking wallet I had ever seen of all the wallets I had looked at, I work in the construction field and I am very hard on everything I have and use, needless to say the wallet held up for thirteen years and when it was time to replace it I went looking for another Hartman, they had proved themselves to meat that time. unfortunately I could not find the luggage shop where I had bought the wallet or anything similar to what I had, since I prefer a bifold wallet, upon some rather long research I had come upon your website and was researching the items that you have, I ordered the medium bifold wallet I guess about 6 months or so ago and when I first got it, it was about the stiffest wallet I had ever had in leather

Unreal

This is an absolutely insane wallet. I am walking on air thinking I may have finally found a wallet that will LAST! I have gone through a dozen wallets in as many years, disgusted with supposed "quality" materials. My last one was made out of tyvek, supposedly tougher than leather. HA! In its defense, it did last several years before the herculean task of using it started to wear a hole. This Saddleback wallet, on the other hand, already shows the hallmarks of something that I will want to be buried with. It was stiff and unyielding as concrete when I first got it, but it is wearing in and softening nicely. I can easily slide my credit cards into the slots, instead of fighting them in (and losing). It is still tough sliding currency in and out, although it is gradually getting easier. A thin currency divider in the middle would have been nice, but given how thick and stiff each sheet of leather is, I am more than willing to overlook this minor difficulty. It is a small price to pay for quality of this level!

Rugged and Durable

First of all, the shipping was extremely fast! It took 5 days for the wallet to get from Texas to Afghanistan. I purchased the Large Bifold Wallet. It looks pretty big at first, but it fits in my back pockets perfectly. My credit cards will finally stop breaking on the bar code, because the cards don't overlap eachother! I love the wallet and I would recommend you purchase this ASAP. A great price as well!

I ROBBED DAVE!!!!

To be clear I technically didn't rob Dave nor anyone for that matter, however I purchased the med. bifold wallet from dave's deals and the quality of the wallet plus the 25% discount was indeed a steal. The rule of thumb according to Dave was about 25 feet away defines the discount, however no one at my office or I could find the defect. I am so satisfied with the wallet, that I may hang it around my neck as a trophy. Thank you to Dave and his family as well as his saddleback family for truly offering something worth our every cent.

P.S. sorry for only rating this product 5 stars however thats as high as you let us rate it Dave.

Reliable and High Quality

I have the small bifold. This is a great wallet! I've had it since Christmas 2012 and it has softened a lot and darkened slightly, and it looks great. I have 3 cards in each pocket at the moment and they fit easily. I just checked and I could squeeze all 6 into the one pocket. so if you have lots of cards it will still fit them all. Its very thin as well, so it doesn't really stick out in my pocket. Mine has been in a bag with wet gear and dried out as though it didn't happen. I've taken it daily to school for a year and 4 months and it's still going well!

perfect, classic, heirloom

After many years, different wallets, money clips and styles, I began the search for the products that I would bequeath to sons. By sheer luck, I stumbled upon Saddleback. I decided to start small - with a wallet. I purchased the large bifold and it is perfect, far superior to my coach medium bifold id wallet. the coach lasted 5 years before it needed retirement. I expect a lifetime out of the Saddleback. it is superior in every way, from the quality of the leather, to the color, to the manufacturing. It is larger than a normal wallet, but I knew that, and it fits my frame. In sum, this was the perfect place to start as I'm hooked on Saddleback.
