I purchased the Id wallet in dark coffee brown on February 2013, wanted to replace my two month old Ferragamo wallet for something a little less flamboyant and manlier. I can't express how great this wallet is, the quality of the leather by far exceeds all my expectations and the quality of the $500.00 Ferragamo leather hands down. At $33.00 this wallet is a steal, anyone who is looking at this wallet and doesn't get it is crazy. Keep up the great work Dave.
Love the quality and design of this product. Small enough to keep in your front pocket without adding bulk. The craftsmanship is outstanding. I was skeptical at first because of the money pocket but I dont think I will ever go back to a bifold. I will purchase more as gifts in the future.
I'm a woman who loves this little wallet. I got the chestnut color and I'd say it looks like milk chocolate with a hint of cinnamon. I normally carry the big wallet but needed a wallet for days when I want to carry a small clutch or crossbody. This works perfectly for those days. It will easily slide into back pocket of the sb clutch, yet holds all the cards and cash I need. It doesn't hold change of course, but the clutch has a little pocket for change anyway. I love that the ID slot is right on front and is accessed in a skinny minute when needed. Great, study and yes, sometimes feminine wallet. Highly recommend.
I have been looking for a TRUE leather wallet for sometime but kept finding out that they all have cardboard in them to make them thicker. That's until I found Saddleback Leather!
After seeing the reviews on this product (Youtube and other sites) I had to buy one. I was starting to think that perhaps it was a little too small for me, but then I got it and started to break it in. That's when this wallet really shinned and stood out, it was very well built and everyone that saw it loved it! It is small and light weight, yet holds more than enough.
I have 12 hard cards (credit, insurance and DL) and some paper cards with room for over 20 paper bills. While it does get big with that much money in it, it all fits and thats what matters. Most of the time I don't carry any cash but when I want to I am still able to carry it very securely in my wallet.
All I can say is that I will be giving these to my closest friends and family members for special events from now on! This will be my last wallet I will ever have to buy myself. Thanks!
THIS THING IS GREAT!!! It smells awesome out of the package and looks great. I bought the tobacco brown colored wallet and i'm very impressed by the feel and color of it. Needs some stretching but that's normal.
Shipping was fast and customer service even sent me a keychain for free after I emailed them and asked if I could get one. Would definitely recommend this wallet to anyone looking for a beautiful yet rugged wallet that looks built to last. I will update this post after a few months of good use and let everyone know about how it's holding up.
I've owned my ID wallet for over 2 years now and absolutely love it! It hasn't shown any signs of falling apart or weaknesses yet. I was a little worried when I ran it and my cash through a full wash cycle, but I just left it out to air dry and it was the exact same as before. Great products!
I received my Tobacco Leather ID Wallet yesterday. All I can say is Wow! I have carried a back pocket bi-fold for many years and started having some hip and back pain. This wallet nicely fits everything I need without adding extra weight and bulk. As with all other Saddleback Leather products, craftsmanship, color and style are all perfect. Thanks SBL...you have a customer for life.
Well designed, well built, stylish, shipping was super fast. Quite pleased, would purchase from here again.
I changed to this wallet from a Slimmy. The construction alone shows quality. The Slimmy has a misaligned seam and the leather is paper thin with a cloth backing and has a chemical smell. The leather used in this product smells great and is thick enough to be sturdy without adding too much bulk. I've carried it over a month now and out of the many slim wallets I've tried this is the best.
Dear Friends and Family,
After my son saw (and fell in love with) my SBL XL Briefcase, He saw I was stalking Dave's Deals and saw this item....when another wallet went up on DD, I SNATCHED it up for myself. He told me which one he wanted and I thought I would wait but I didn't. I bought him one and he is never lost it thus far. He absolutely loves this ID wallet. And I love my wallet as well!!!

Dave I just want to send a personal thank you. This ID wallet is exactly what I was looking for. I have had many wallets and finally have found a minimalist solution in your product. This was my first purchase through Saddleback and will not be my last.
I have been looking for something to give my groomsman for my wedding this October and have ordered 6 more of these for that very purpose. I know they will enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks!
I have searched for quite a bit of time for a solid leather wallet. After spending the better part of 15 years carrying much cheaper wallets I finally came across Saddleback. I Love the mobility and easy of the ID wallet. It is lightweight and compact. After only a week I'm already loving the look it is taking on. Thanks Dave you have a customer for a long time.
Seems like everything can get so complicated but then I pull out this simple but very well built wallet. There's beauty in simplicity and this wallet is it! Plenty of room for credit cards and easy on the rump. It will force you to cull extraneous materials and keep only the essentials. Excellent craftsmanship and high quality for the price. I do carry in my back pocket and have had no issues. Frankly, you'll likely forget it's there. If they're serious about the 100 year warranty, it will go in my legal will. :)
I wanted something tough that would hold up better and this looks like it. It's nice because it made me force down what I carry so I don't have the George Constanza wallet anymore. If I had to critque one thing I wish that it was about 1/4 inch deeper to hold the cash in a little more. Other than that I'll be back for more stuff in the future.
I was looking for a new checkbook/rodeo size wallet and all I could find was junk. After much wailing and gnashing of teeth about how I'd never manage to carry all my stuff with a small wallet, I went ahead and ordered the I.D. wallet. I really expected I'd toss it in a drawer after a few days but it has been over a year now and I can't believe I used to carry all the other junk around with me. Now I'm here buying a front pocket wallet for my son's birthday and wanted to say how impressed and happy I am with Saddleback Leather.
Awesome wallet! It's one of the best designs of any wallet I have ever owned or considered owning. I have purchased three so far....one for me and two for other people. Overall a great value!
Quality leather at an unbeatable price. The wallet holds just what you need. Fits well in your pocket. The ID wallet can hold small amounts of cash better than most other card cases, which means it's practicality is superior as well.
I have gone thru slim wallet after slim wallet trying to find the right combination of quality and capability. I finally found it with this wallet! It holds exactly the right amount of cards, some cash, a few extras like a security card, and yet remains slim. The quality of the leather is outstanding! And it smells real good too :) I carry it in my front pocket and it takes up hardly any space at all.
I'm a girl and I love this wallet! I don't know why this isn't on the womens product page.
My old wallet was big and I never took time to clean it out, making my purse really heavy. This wallet is minimalistic and forces me to only keep what I need.
It fits perfectly in my leather clutch purse.
I especially like the window for my ID. It makes showing my ID easy.
My first SBL item. Received it and immediately fell in love. The smell, look and feel was more than I expected and I couldn't wait to start breaking it in and getting that patina going that I've heard about with the products.
As I was stretching the card pockets with a big stack of cards, I noticed a small rip in the front. The front pocket is a lot thinner than I hoped for. The rest of the pockets are lined with pigskin except the front card pocket and the id window. I contacted customer service and they immediately insisted on sending me a replacement with no questions asked in lightning speed. I couldn't pass it up and even had them throw in a simple wallet sleeve.
No issues with it now and its been getting better and better looking every day.
The one thing I wish was that the center pocket could hold paper money better. If you fold the bills in half it is hard to squeeze them in there. Not practical for me in day to day transactions at stores or elsewhere unless I want to hold up the line and look awkward.
Since I don't carry much cash on me, this isn't a deal breaker at all.
Call it an obsession, but I cant wait to take it to work or put it through a days 'beating' to give it more character.
Will definitely be ordering more products. Customer service is the best I've encountered in any company especially and online one.
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.
What a wonderful wallet! I have had one for about 8 months and it has started to break in nicely. The leather has softened and I can get several more cards into it comfortably. The only problem I have had is that once it has about 10+ cards in it, getting cash in or out can be a hassle. Even so, it still works fine. The ID pocket is perfect for easy, fast access to my student ID that I use several times a day. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this wallet for anyone who doesn't want the bulk of a bi-fold, but still needs to carry some cash.
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 product is amazing! Highly recommend it.
Wonderful wallet! At first I was worried that it wouldn't hold all my cards and cash, but it has stretched out nicely over the last 6 months. As most of you have already heard, the patina and scratches really add to the character of a SBL piece and the Dark Coffee Brown is no exception. My only complaint is that sometimes it can be difficult to get cash in and out if I have too many cards (10+). Other than that, it is a quality wallet that I don't have to worry about falling apart.
