I don't like a big wallet. I have had ID wallets, money clip wallets, and folding wallets. Nothing has come close to this for initial quality. I was worried it might not hold enough. It's got plenty of room for at least 6 cards, drivers license, and at least 5-7 folded bills. Everything I need and incredibly well constructed. We will see how long it lasts, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.

"... Saddleback Leather no longer discriminates against any cow on the basis of age, appearance, lactose intolerance... if the beast has a natural marking or brand, or whether or not they worship the Divine Bovine."
Truth is, sometimes beauty is only skin deep... like with cows. Their poetry is notoriously terrible, but man, their hides are nature's art. We don't believe that flawlessness equals beauty. Beauty is when we're able to see something as it really is.
This is true with humans too. There are lots of quality people who are really beautiful not in spite of, but because of the marks life has given them.
I was living in Morelia, Michoacán teaching English back in 1999 when I decided to go by myself to the Dia de los Muertos festival in Patcuaro, about 30 minutes away.
So there I am at this festival, standing on the corner deciding which way to go when I see this friendly looking white guy with a big huge smile on his face. I took a few steps over to him, stuck my hand out and said, “Hi, I’m Dave.” He responded, “Hey, I’m Jimmy.” To make a long story longer, we really hit it off and became great friends. We even ended up hitchhiking all over Mexico together.
You see, you don’t need money, or even a wallet, to travel around, make lifelong friends and have real good times. You just need to decide to go and then go. But if you are going to own one, you may as well get one of these. It’s my personal favorite and doesn’t take up too much space, but it doesn’t work so well with British Pound notes.
Perfect for use if you don't want to bulk of a full wallet. However, you will not be able to keep a lot of cash in it unless you fold it up small.
After a year of use, the leather has become so buttery soft. This is the perfect minimalist wallet.
Ive been searching for the perfect wallet my entire wallet carrying career and I've finally found it with Saddlebacks id wallet. I hate bulk with a passion and have tried pretty much every "front pocket" wallet known to man. You name it, any brand, any cost....i've used it.
Im a month in now with this tobacco brown wallet and it just gets better and better. The leather is molding beautifully around my cards, and the color is gorgeous. No complaints, its perfect.
I wanted a small wallet to hold my ID, student ID, credit cards and cash. This wallet is perfect. Sometimes I prefer not to carry a purse and this is exactly what I was looking for. I can put this in my pocket and it is not noticeable, which is just what I wanted. I highly recommend this wallet!!
This front pocket ID wallet was my first minimalist pocket wallet AND my first SBL purchase! I can not describe the level of satisfaction that I have with this wallet so far. I've been carrying it for about a week now, and I absolutely love it. It's exactly everything I hoped it would be. Thank you SBL!
I purchased this wallet to replace a wallet that I bought about a year ago. When I bought the other one I had looked at Saddleback but the color I wanted was out of stock so I went with choice 2. The Saddleback is much higher quality and about the same price. I had a little trouble getting everything into it but it has already begun to break in. The workmanship on this is excellent and I think it is going to last for a very long time. I am very happy with this purchase and only wish that I had waited instead of buying the other wallet that I have thrown out already!
I would love to have one design with the magnetic clip.
I have had this wallet for over 5 years now and it gets used every day. I have the center stuffed with medical and insurance cards along with a couple of outdoor shop.s rewards cards. DL is in the obvious location and then 3 credit cards between front and rear pockets. I have no complaints and expect it to last another 5 years or longer. Just ordered a cc wallet for my wife to carry in her purse. She'll never need another one....saving my pennies for the camera bag for retirement traveling and field use. Thanks for the great products Dave!
I currently own many saddle back leather items and I am a huge fan you guys are awesome. I just ordered 2 more id wallets another for me and one for my wife. I recently donated my medium wallet to her and it holds all her stuff but she can never find anything. So I am getting her one of the id wallets to help minimize the problem of finding her drivers license and bank card as needed. I recently saw you have come out with a wonderfully designed a gun pouch I will have to own. Thanks Dave I will be a life time customer
I love this stuff best quality ever. I have purcahsed my chritmas wallets for next year for sure.
There is obvious quality, whether visually or via touch. Patina is apparent after only 2-3 weeks with much more to come. Break in is finally showing after 2-3 weeks and cards are starting to slide out easier but still struggle with some (although better than new). I was torn between the carbon an tobacco but something about the tobacco says vintage once full patina settles in that I could not resist. Currently it has 2 credit cards, 2 laminated insurance cards, Costco card, thick access card for work, licensee.
This is perfection for those in search of the perfect wallet. I love it, it's what I've been looking for. First, it's a typical saddleback product, by that I mean quality and craftsmanship. It has a slot for your drivers license, slots for credit cards, and a place for folded cash. It's fairly flat even when loaded with the aforementioned items, and small enough to fit perfectly in your front pocket. I'm hooked on saddleback products, they just seems to know what works, and works perfectly. If you're looking for something besides the traditional wallet this is precisely it. Perfection, without
Back in 2009 I purchased a Burberry wallet (similar design to the Front Pocket ID Wallet) and the stitching began to come off. I paid $200 for it. I called the place and they told me that the wallet only had a ONE year warranty, and to repair it they were charging me a minimum of $50. That is the last time I purchased a product for its name, and not for its quality. Then my nephew told me about Saddleback Leather and as I looked through the website, looked at the videos and read about the quality of the products I fell in love with everything, then I saw this wallet and decided to order it. I love the feeling of the leather, the look (Chestnut) of the wallet and the smell of "vaqueta" it has letting me know that it is truly top graded leather. I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase and product...I would NOT buy leather anywhere else besides Saddleback Leather.
I have the black colour which is no longer available - I couldn't decide about the other colours at the time and it seemed like a safe pick. Incredibly durable and well made product. I've had mine for almost two years and it looks fantastic. I think the new "carbon" colour would be my new choice or maybe the coffee brown - both should look great with some regular use and aging.
I bought this from Dave's Deals. So glad I did. I left on a business trip a few days later and I had never been happier. I had my corporate cards, ID, and cash easily accessible.
Funny, TSA was not thrilled with me trying to get my drivers license out of the ID window section. Let it stretch before you try to jam 2 or 3 in there. I held up the line well past anyones patience point, even my own. Side note.....Sadly my iPhone 5 sleeve I was using on my Moto X got lost at the TSA checkpoint. I just got the thing. My heart broke, it worked and looked awesome.
I read a review below that knocks the wallet for the way it holds cash. They're trying to fit JPY in the wallet designed for USD. I don't think I need to explain any more on why that's a fail from the start. It works fine for USD. I've packed single bills and a wad of about 15 singles. If you get an old crinkly single and try to jam it in there it's an interesting process. I was looking for ways to make this fail and I came up short, only if I created a ridiculous situation could I imagine this wallet failing.
I don't ever write reviews for products but after my experience yesterday I had to. Long story short I thought that I lost my wallet at the gym yesterday. The funny thing is that my first thought was "damn I lost my saddleback!" As I was cancelling the four cards I had in my wallet and dreading the ridiculous wait at the DMV for a new license, I couldn't help but mourn my loss. It had been a part of me for three years.
But lo and behold when I got home from work my tobacco, worn to a beautiful patina, wallet was on my floor in my room. I picked it up and told it I was sorry for losing it and that it would never happen again. This is the best wallet I have ever owned and I am hoping for it to stick with me for the next 100 years.
I made absolutely certain that in the shipping information section of the billing process I wrote under "Shipping Requests" that I wanted to receive my new chestnut Saddleback wallet with a picture of Indiana Jones riding a horse in it. I was quite disappointed when it arrived sans the picture.
It's a great wallet though if a bit small at first. I know it'll stretch a bit to fit everything a little more comfortable so for that I give it the whole shebang... 5 tin stars.
Next time I'll take it easy on the shipping department though and simply request that my items be delivered by a midget wearing a top hat.
After purchasing and thinking it over, I became nervous that the wallet would slip out of my pocket due to its size. Upon receiving it (after an extremely positive experience with customer service and shipping), I realized I needn't worry. Stays in the pocket, extremely versatile and practical due to its size but useful design and has begun to mark up beautifully as the leather comes in contact with everyday life. Also smells great. As my first purchase with SBL, I've realized its far from being my last.
I bought one of these in natural on sale probably 7-8 years ago.
It has patina'ed to a gorgeous medium brown, and has suited my minimalist carry lifestyle to a T.
This is what it holds for me - my id, my atm card, my costco card, 4 business, and about 15 bills in the $$ slot.
Basically, if you like to have plenty of small bills at your disposal or have the need to carry a variety of credit cards this is probably not for you. OTOH, I'm not sure why anyone would need more.
20 years ago my chiropractor told me to switch to a front pocket wallet. That started the search as they were hard to find and usually poorly made. If I could get 3 years out of one before it broke down, I was lucky. When my Saddleback wallet arrived, I knew the search was over. I didn't need a 100 warranty to tell me that this was the best wallet I will ever buy.
Thank you Dave and team for your extraordinary craftsmanship!
This was my first experience w/ Saddleback. The Photo ID Wallet is exactly what I wanted for a front pocket wallet. I was so sure that this was going to be perfect that I bought two ... one as a future gift. I was not disappointed. There was an error in the initial shipment; Saddleback Customer Service handled it promptly to my total satisfaction. I will be a return customer!!!
This is my current daily carry wallet. It's pretty much exactly what you'd expect given the description in the video. It's light, but sturdy, and beautiful.
I keep 5 cards, plus my driver's licence and a thin insurance card in it right now, and it's snug. I imagine I could put a lot more in it, and the leather would stretch to accommodate them. Heck, it had to stretch a bit to accommodate what I have in it right now, but it did so beautifully.
I slip it into my back pocket, but I imagine that other people would be comfortable throwing it into a bag (or purse if you're so inclined), put into a front pocket, a shirt pocket...really anything.
All in all, I'm impressed with it, and you probably will be, too.
This wallet is the best wallet I ever had. I keep 7 cards in it. Also some cash. I have put over 20 bills in it and it does its job very well. I have had it for about 6 months and it breaks in very nicely. Very durable also have a cdl license and I keep my medical card right behind the id pocket folded neatly. I have mine in carbon black nice color and it is true it does smell great.
I was in need of a new wallet. I have always traditionally been a bifold back wallet kind of guy. I had been starting to put the wallet in my front pocket when sitting down because it was hurting my back. Well luckily I ended up reading the reviews of this wallet and was finally persuaded.
Well, after three weeks of use I can proudly say this is the best wallet I have ever owned. I love the fact that there is no plastic or anything in front of the drivers license. Very Classy. The wallet has stretched out and I currently hold 8 cards plus some cash (plus drivers license) comfortably.
I highly recommend this product.
