I've had this wallet now for a couple of years or so. All I ever want to carry around is my license, a couple insurance & credit cards, & occasionally a few dollar bills. That's all that will fit in this thing. From handling it & taking it in & out of my pocket, the leather has developed a great sheen. Any scuffs now just rub right out, although they do add character to the wallet too. I have great confidence that this wallet will easily outlast me & was a fantastic investment.

"... 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.
I love SBL and have had this wallet for two years+. The wallet still looks great. The two negatives are 1.) You can't carry much cash with this wallet and 2.) The wallet is constantly destroying the magnetic strips of my credit card. I have to keep several cards in each slot in order to keep it tight so they don't all fall out, but then when I pull out my primary card (my debit card), it quickly wears the magnetic strip down from the friction with the card below. I just purchased the medium bifold in hopes that the problem will be solved. I've literally been through 3 debit cards this year because of this problem.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Well designed, well built, stylish, shipping was super fast. Quite pleased, would purchase from here again.
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!!!

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.
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.
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 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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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 received this as a gift and love it so far. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the durability, but it does appear to be made incredibly well. Great product at a great price.
