I've had this wallet for about a year now, and I would (and do) highly recommend it for just about anyone. I now swear by a front-pocket wallet for comfort and convenience.
It's big enough to carry 8-10 cards (credit, license, insurance, etc.) with ease, and hold around 15 bills in the middle without being overcrowded.
It's not for George Costanza, so don't count on carrying hard candy or sugar packets, but it will carry all that you really need.
This was exactly what I was looking for. A slim wallet that could carry my check card, drivers license and some cash. I used to wear my old wallets in the back right pocket, but this one stays in the front left with my phone. I like the hidden pocket for my insurance card.
I really have nothing to add to the reviews about the wallet. So I will say something about the people behind the wallet.
The service I received was excellent. They were very helpful, friendly, and quickly answered any question I had. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
And the wallet is excellent.
I love this wallet. It is great to have something this small and good-looking to hold me to a reasonable level of stuff in my pocket. I don't miss all the filler that I used to carry at all. I'd say I would buy another, but this one looks like it will last forever.
My father gave me a leather wallet 15 years ago. While it still worked, it didn't fit well in slimmer pockets and I worried over its scuffs. I was hinting at getting an ID wallet, and sister gave me one of these for my birthday.
Now I must admit, until now I had written Saddleback Leather off. While they looked rugged, they seemed to be geared towards people who always wear jeans to work, work that was far sweatier than mine. To my great shame now, I thought that I needed Coach and Louis Vuitton. But in hindsight, this thing is perfect. In my back pocket, I almost forget it exists. Furthermore, I can flash my ID right quick, and keep my important insurance information behind it.
People have marveled at its workmanship when I pull it out. Even the people with Coach wallets have asked to feel the smooth darkened leather, and how invincible the thing feels.
I was doing myself a disavor by denying myself full leather goods. Shouldn't I also use stuff that lasts forever??? Sorry dad, but sis's wallet is the one I use for nights on the town!
This wallet is great. I wanted to get a smaller wallet for some time now and my brother recommended this one. The craftsmanship is just as wonderful as the design. I can easily fit 6-7 cards with cash in it and it is still very slim.
For the price, this wallet is an absolute steal. Shipping was fast too!
I always had a problem hoarding stuff in my wallet. It was especially unsightly because I carried it in my front pocket. I decided it was time to look for a minimalist style wallet, but I wanted it to be nice. I searched everywhere and looked at all different brands. I even bought 2 others from different companies and sent them back. Then I came across Saddleback. I was amazed at the quality, craftsmanship, and customer service. Not to mention the amazing warranty on the products. This is the best money I ever spent on a wallet. This was the first Saddleback product I purchased, but it won't be my last. I think a matching belt would go nicely with my new wallet! If you're thinking about getting one...DO IT...you will NOT be disappointed!
Bought one in Coffee for myself, but my wife confiscated it. She said it was exactly what she has been looking for. Not too big, not too small. Now she wants one in EACH of the beautiful colors to match her growing collection of Saddleback Leather. You guys have become a one-stop gift shop!
I love this wallet. I wanted something minimalistic, slim, so it doesn't turn into a Costanza in the pocket. Here's the best part. I have lost it TWICE, and both times a good Samaritan has returned it. I could replace the cards, I can get a new license, but the loss of the wallet hurt. The leather is holding up. I did find that if you randomly put more cards then you normally use, it will stretch a bit, then when you downsize, the cards are a bit loose for a week or so. I stick to two cards in each slot now.
I bought a Dark Coffee Brown one and as soon as I opened the package, I knew I had bought premium quality leather. The SMELL! Such fine leather with an amazing thread-work, it made my older card wallet look like a rag. I could easily accommodate 6-7 cards, some cash and two ID cards in it. It is a little bit stiff now but I know it will loosen up with time and use. This is a great product and will make an amazing gift.
This is an outstanding leather wallet! I have owned the same wallet for a few years now and it started to frail and crack. turns out it was made from some cheap stuff. right out of the packaging I could tell that this is really nice leather, and the stitching is superb. I know this will last me a very long time! Customer service was outstanding, seriously; you will regret not getting this amazing mark of craftsmanship.
I've only been using this wallet for a few days, but I am completely satisfied with my purchase. The price tag is negligible when you factor in the convenience and great looks. Furthermore, the service was friendly, and Saddleback definitely justifiably believes in the quality of their products.
I've owned this wallet for two and a half years now and it's still going strong. I'm thinking of buying more for a gift for my sons, a wallet that will last them a life time.
I was looking for a thin / low profile wallet but also wanted high quality leather. I stumbled on this and was hoping for something just average.
I am literally blown away by the quality of this wallet. This thing is going to last forever and I love the craftsmanship!!
Thank you for this great product!
Just another in a long line of items I've ordered from these guys. Love it, love it, love it! Awesome customer service too. You guys are the bomb!
Why did I ever carry a bigger wallet? I've only had it a day, but I'm in love with this thing. It's perfectly sized to fit all the basics you really need. I have 8 cards, a few bills, and a couple notes tucked away in this wallet. It is also extremely well constructed. To echo another review, the smell of the treated leather is awesome. I had to pass it around my office. Everyone loved it.
A note about the color: I purchased the "Tobacco Brown" and it does not match the color of the picture on this site. Mine is a littler darker. I actually prefer the darker color of the one I received, though.
I purchased this wallet in chestnut to match everything else I've purchased from SBL and it's aged beautifully. It's amazing what I've discovered that I don't actually need to carry around with me.
I currently carry 8 driver's license type cards (size & thickness) and an average of 5 bills folded in half.
I've had it stuffed with $500 worth of $20 bills with limited success just to give an idea of capacity.
I will leave a warning that long term over-stuffing will result in bent cards. use it for the purpose and capacity it was made for and you shouldn't have any issues.
I'm not a 'carry my wallet' kind guy. Or at least I wasn't until I got this ID Wallet. I've had it about a month now and really enjoy it. It makes me want to carry and use it. It's thin, sleek and manly!
It is my 4-th product by Saddleback and it is one of my the most lovely wallet.
Very light and easy to use, especially if you don't need coins.
It easy keeps more then 10 notes + 4 debit/credit cards + ID (or driving license).
I use it in my trips everyday and very satisfied with it.
I very recommend this product for people who needs tiny wallet and prefer to use cards.
This wallet is much nicer than my previous bulky bifold. Fits in my pocket nicer, much more simply built, and aesthetically pleasing. Great quality craftsmanship and durability, plus a 100-year warranty to back it up! Not only that, but the amazing employees helped immediately with my shipping fee problem. This quality service and product is incomparable for the price I paid anywhere else. Great business, hope to buy from you guys again!
Got my wallet a few weeks ago and it has lived up to my (quite high) expectations in every way. It perfectly suits my needs, and I expect it will continue to do so for as long as I have the need for a wallet. In addition, customer service was excellent! I will do my best to spread the word of your products to the rest of Scandinavia!
If you're wearing a suit to work everyday, this is the wallet for you. After going to two interviews with my travel wallet with built-in money clip magnet, I realized I'd need to get something much more slimmer if I wanted to keep my wallet on me. I found this little guy, and received it as a graduation gift. It fits the bill perfectly. Enough space to carry my license, AAA card, insurance card, debit card, credit card, and some cash. If I need something else (loyalty card) I just carry it in my pocket, or add a money clip if I know I'll need some more cash for the day. My only concern is whether I'll need this thing in 60 years if cash/cards are obsolete.
This is just a great wallet. I received it in the mail today, and can't believe the high quality associated with this product. I have purchased the same style from another well known competitor, and let me say that their wallet doesn't come close to the quality of the Saddleback wallet.
Can't wait to buy another Saddleback product in the near future!
Thank you Saddleback!!
This style of wallet is exactly what i was looking for. And the quality is fantastic. Once it breaks in and forms to what keep in there, it gets even better. I won't ever need another one.
Bought this for my boyfriend about a month ago. Amazing quality, perfect design, and holds everything he needs and nothing that he doesn't. For the price, this wallet can't be beat!
Thank you so much Saddleback Leather!
