I just got this (dk coffee brown) and I must say I do like it, I am not sure I got the old school thick leather that saddleback is famous for or if I got the new thinner leather product that a few folks have complained about. I may put it in my pocket to run into a store or something but it will not be there regularly.... it will be in my bag.... One thing I will say I was not able to put my license in the front id window right out of the box...I did call saddleback and they suggested I pack it with a few cards and let it sit a few days to stretch. I will be using this and if it turns out it does not hold its shape or becomes warped or weird I am sure saddleback will replace it. If in a day or 2 the window is still too tight it will probably get returned.

"... 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.
This is my first saddleback buy, but from what I had seen before I knew it was going to be a quality piece. It is very slim, very durable, and the attention to detail surprised me even with their reputation. The customer service was also amazing. When I placed the order is mistyped the zip code, which they fixed via email within 24 hours. The shipping was very timely and the packaging was great, not that a wallet of this quality needs all protection. I am having a little difficulty placing and remove bills from the center slot, however that is my only issue with this wallet. I love both the color and the smell and can't wait to get more use out of this great wallet.
Bought 3 in tobacco from Dave's Deals. Love the color. I am a teacher and this came in very useful on a recent field-trip. Fits perfectly in my front pocket. I put a chain through the id loop and wear around my neck with my work id. The other is going to be a stocking stuffer for my son at Christmas.
Just received this today, and it's in tobacco! Love love love the color! It's a warm mix of honeys and browns, and it's great for use in my new clutch (also received that today)! Money, MRT (train) card, nets card, ID...all organized into this compact little number. It'll fit easily in jeans as well.
Bought the Tobacco from Dave's Deals. Seems in perfect condition to me. Its really tight now for cards/ID's . Sure leather will stretch and the problem will be solved. The middle opens and is the perfect spot for cash. I bought this to use in the clutch purse for trips to the mall, concerts, etc. I also ordered the small notepad at the same time in Tobacco and they are completely different colors. Luckily I don't care if they match.
Purchased this wallet in tobacco brown about five months ago. Others have pointed out that the cash slot can be difficult, but I personally don't usually carry more than $10-15 in cash, so it was the perfect solution for me. It holds my ID plus five other cards, although much more could fit if needed. The leather has taken on indigo tones from my jeans which I think looks very good. If you keep this wallet in your back pocket and keep a credit card in the front slot, the numbers may begin to press through (not legible, but noticeable). Overall, I am extremely happy with my purchase and have recommended Saddleback to several others who have asked me about it.
I bought this when is was $45 which was almost half a year ago and still looks amazing. the longer you have it the more rustic it looks. you cant lose.
The best purchase I've made lately. I have lost track of how many $40 front pocket wallets I bought on an annual basis because they wore flat out. I still carry a hip wallet for stuff I don't use that often, but I use this one all the time. My main credit card, my debit card, my drivers license and 8 or 10 business cards is all I carry in it. Exactly what I needed. This puppy will last forever! Love it!
This product is amazing! Highly recommend it.
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.
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've had a similar style wallet for some time from a different company. Recently it began falling apart and I was happily pointed towards SBL. This wallet is of far superior construction and leather compared to what I had last time - and actually cheaper (paid $50 for last one).
Only initial downside is that the leather is rather stiff and requires some working to get cards to fit well. I've been using for a few weeks since Xmas and it is beginning to loosen up already.
Overall great product, looking to expand my collection with a bag and hopefully, some day, some moccasins if Dave decides to make them!
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.
I had been looking for the perfect thin / slim wallet for years. I had bought several that were okay but they always fell apart and were made of low grade materials and the stitching was bad. After seeing a review online of the Saddleback Leather Wallet and pictures posted by owners after years of use and the wallet actually looked better old then they did new, I knew I had to get one! The quality is amazing! The leather is some of the best I have even seen used in a wallet and the stitching is perfect! After breaking it in over a few weeks you start to forget you even have it in your pocket, it's that comfortable. If you are on the fence about purchasing this wallet go for it you wont be disappointed!
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.
I got this wallet for Christmas 2011. It instantly became my every day wallet. I like that it fits in my front pocket.
The center pocket is little hard to get cash out of but that is not always a bad thing.
I looks even better after using it for a year. 99 more to go.
After purchasing the medium bifold wallet and being somewhat disappointed with it. I decided to try the I.D. wallet. It's perfectly comfortable in my front pocket, and fits a good amount of daily carry items - driver's license, car and medical insurance cards, passport card, some cash, and about five or six credit cards. No room for receipts, gift cards with $0.50 left on them, or busniess cards from that guy you met on the train the other day. This wallet disciplines you to carry only the necessities.
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.
BUY THIS WALLET!!!
33 Bucks for high quality that is warranted long after your dead. NOW THAT IS A BARGAIN!
A Premium ALL LEATHER wallet
ALL LEATHER including Pigskin...oh im sorry, there is the MARINE GRADE STITCHING...this thing smells of testosterone.
Small enough to carry only what you need. Its the digital age, I have a phone that keeps everything, so why do i want anything but cash and cards in my wallet.
BOTTOM LINE , Its just old school quality craftsmanship. No fancy plastic windows (to protect your plastic license) or thin fabric used as dividers (which will eventually rip). ALL LEATHER means just that.
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!
