Nice wallet

by

Have used this wallet for about six months. Love the Tobacco color. Amazingly, you don't feel this huge wallet in your back pocket. The large footprint relieves the pressure points. Have driven all day and forgot I had it in the back pocket of my jeans. The tobacco has aged very nicely. Disclaimer, I am a bit biased, have the front pocket backpack and the heavy belts in all three colors. Have a high appreciation for Saddleback quality!

This is a perfect wallet

by

I have been using the Large Bifold Wallet daily for over two years now. I am not going to elaborate on the the quality of construction and leather; we all know it is simply the best in all categories. Mine is the black color and I find the black items at SBL are the most true to the original color after many years of use. I have all colors in many different items from SBL, however I always purchase black for any items that will be used in and around a business/professional setting, it maintains a professional look for the duration.







Regarding form and function, this wallet is large enough to accommodate all you would want to put in a wallet, and not damage your credit cards in process. Because there is no overlap of the cards they stay flat, which in turn keeps the wallet from getting bulky. I travel constantly and need to carry ID"s, credit cards and the like for the different countries I visit monthly. The wallet easily carries what I need and stays very flat, which I appreciate when wearing suits and formal clothing. I fly three to four times a week and I find this wallet combined with the SBL Passport Wallet is the ultimate for frequent flyers.







If this one ever needs replacing I will get the exact same thing as it simply is the best wallet I have found in my 40 years.

AMAZING

by -

I've recently received the tobacco variant of this wallet, and I must say I am impressed. It is a stunning piece of work. Beautiful color, great size, and the fit and finish is spot on. It fits perfectly in all of my back pockets and like said in a previous review the large footprint relieves any pressure point you may get from a smaller wallet. I am now hooked on Saddleback products and can't wait to get more.

Amazing in Every Way

by

Waited for what seemed like a lifetime to order a large bifold in Dark chocolate brown. Finally got my mitts on it today and it's just as great as I thought it would be, along with everyone else I've talked to or reviews I've read.















The quality is outstanding. You can just feel it right out of the package. I can't stop smelling the darn thing.















I'm a big guy with giant hands so the large bifold is perfect for me. Holds all my cards securely and with the built in RFID protection, it's a no brainer. Plus, a portion goes to we'll deserved charities!















Simply put, I'm looking forward to having a long relationship with my wallet, as a person that goes through "high end" wallets at a silly pace.















Oh, and the customer service is just amazing. Be it on Twitter, chat, phone or email, they are all fantastic.

Awesome Large Bi Fold

by

Damn!, That's all I thought when I opened the package. The quality was there from the moment I touched the wallet. Beautiful leather smell and build, it felt like I had found my new wallet. Being a minimalist kind of guy, I was skeptic to pick up the large bi fold. But after just watching some videos and seeing it, I lusted for it. So i pulled the trigger on a Saturday night and received it on Wednesday (extremely fast shipping). I'm just in love with it and can tell its going to be my wallet for a while.















Note: For all you minimalist kind of guys, this may not be the wallet for you. But after using my Burberry id wallet for so many years, the transition of changing wallet sizes has been mostly seamless.

Awesome Wallet!

by

I bought the large and I am not disappointed. It spreads your cards out nicely so you don't have a brick in your back pocket and your wallet does not roll around in your back pocket when wearing slacks. I have had back surgery and a medium wallet bulks up like a brick and causes back pain and I would have to take it out when sitting at my desk or driving and then I would forget it on my desk or in my truck. I don't have to take this one out. At first it is like a picture frame in your back pocket, but it soon molds itself to your ass and is very comfortable. It takes up your entire back pocket in jeans, slacks or shorts and I like that about it, it fits great in my Levi 501's and my dress slacks, completely in the pocket so you are not worried about it slipping out or being picked in a crowd. I have even had a couple of compliments on it! It is a manly wallet and I love it. It is very well made, but that goes without saying, because it's Dave's design and construction. I'm sure this will last a very, very long time and only become better with age and wear.

Beautiful!!!

by

I have been looking around on this site of a while now and watching all of the videos to get a idea of the craftsmanship. I have a local guy who does wonderful leather work but I decided to buy Dave's wallet. Very impressed. The color is beautiful, the stitching it doubled back on , the feel and smell is just awesome. I I'll buy more, in fact, I want a large Water Bag! It's almost the perfect design!

Best Ever!!!

by

I have bought and used the i.d. wallet, large, medium, and small bi-fold. The quality of the leather is outstanding! After using each wallet for a year I have decided That my small tobacco brown bi-fold is "my" wallet. The size and color is amazing and it definitely gets better with age.







I have gifted my small black bi-fold to my 16 year old son who has been using the wallet for 2 years and he loves it!







I also gave my coffee brown i.d. wallet to my 19 year old daughter and she loves it as well!







I use my other large and medium coffee brown bi-folds for credit cards and business cards that I don't need to carry everyday.







My cousin saw our wallets and immediately bought a large and medium bi-fold in carbon black.







I just purchased a black tow belt for work since I need a sturdy belt for my holster...can't wait!

Best Wallet Ever Owned

This is the best wallet that I have ever owned. I highly recommend this wallet to anyone who is looking for their next wallet. I've had the LG Bifold Wallet a little over a year now, and I couldn't be more satisfied.

BEST WALLET I HAVE EVER OWNED!!

by

This is the first time I have purchased a wallet from someplace other than a department store. I have gone through almost ten of those and I think my Saddleback will last several lifetimes.







I have had my Tobacco large bifold for about a month now and it is starting to break in nicely and is also starting to develop a beautiful patina. I know it will continue to get better and better with time.







I have stretched the card pockets (by adding a card every few days) so that I am up to 7 cards in each pocket on the left side. I use the right pockets for a credit card sized cellphone battery/charger (about 5 cards thick) and the other one for a credit card sized phone charger cable (about 2 cards thick).







EACH card pocket will easily hold 8 or more cards as long as you work up to it over time.







I dont carry cash so I have a metal business card case in the cash pocket on the left side and some other things in right side of the cash pocket.







I am VERY picky and... I LOVE THIS WALLET!!!







I wish I found it before wasting my money on every other wallet thats lasted me only a few years.







THANKS FOR MAKING A QUALITY PRODUCT!!

Everything I Had Hoped

by

I just received the Large Tobacco Bifold and, since I'm a Saddleback veteran, I can review it immediately (I know how it will hold up!). First let me say that I was a little nervous about ordering this color because everything else I have is Chestnut (yes, I pretty much match Dave's description of the Chestnut personality) and some of the comments I had seen online regarding leather quality. I didn't see any other reviews on the Saddleback site to answer my questions but I liked what I saw and ordered anyway. I'm so glad I did because the negative postings I'd seen are rubbish. The original tobacco brown was a little light for me, and had a little fuzz on it (changed color depending on which way you stroked it). The "new" tobacco has a smooth finish more like the chestnut and is a "medium brown" color that I know will be gorgeous with use. As to the rumor that Dave had lowered quality, I see no such evidence on any of the 3 pieces in my order. I actually have an unused chestnut large bifold that I purchased about 18-24 months ago (just in case they stopped making them) and the thickness and feel is exactly the same. The absolute only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is they are no longer putting the inner "hidden flap" or pigskin lining on the inner part of the billfold section, which I miss. If you weren't expecting it, you'd never know and would be perfectly happy, as I in fact am.

Expectations MET!!!

by

I purchased the large bi fold. Its a great fit for anyone who leads an active lifestyle and requires the security and protection of a rugged, built for what life throws at you type package.







Its big and comfortable. I like how the contents of a typical wallet are layed out in a way that avoid the "brick in the back pocket" look and feel.







Has a deep cash pocket that keep prying eyes out and ample room for all my cards and paper. Cards fit tight and secure.







Its one of those pieces you feel good about. Its one of those pieces that will only get better with age and time. Really diggin' my new wallet and actually ordered the 1 3/4 old bull belt and and ID wallet today too.







Do your homework. Read reviews. Youtube. Etc. At the end of the day don't be suprised if you're back here ordering your own pieces. Its a great product at a great price. I know had I not done my research I would not of found Saddleback Leather. Viva la internet!!!

Finally a replacement for my 15 year old Hartmann wallet!

by

For the past 15 years, I've carried a large Hartmann vegetable-tanned wallet in natural Canadian belting leather. It is almost the exact same design and color as the SBL Large Bifold Wallet in Tobacco Brown. As my Hartmann's good looks were beginning to fade, I started looking everywhere for this same two row design (Hartmann discontinued it years ago).







I only found two options - SBL's and a black wallet on hammacher.com of unknown quality leather and cheap stitching. The very detailed product page for the SBL wallet made the decision very easy.







I think I paid around $120 for the Hartmann wallet 15 years ago, and it was worth every penny. I could carry it for another 15 years, but I just happened upon the SBL website and got excited about upgrading, since it has been so difficult to find this same style. For anyone who thinks the large wallet is overkill, let me tell you that it is well worth the switch. Your wallet will be thinner and more comfortable than it has been with the same number of cards, because there is less overlap. Also, the two row design allows a natural flex point half way down that allows the wallet to cradle your butt when you wear it without bending any cards.







Buy the Leather Bifold Wallet in the large size. You will not regret it. Personally, I like the lightest color (Tobacco Brown), because it shows the most natural characteristics of the leather and should develop the most attractive patina as the years pass by.







While I have a few suggestions for SBL to make this wallet absolutely perfect in every way, it definitely deserves 5 starts as it is. Here is what I would suggest to improve the wallet:







1. Provide a very light "natural" aniline dye option, so that the lustrous patina can start from as blank a slate as possible.



2. Offer a 100% vegetable-tanned belting leather option. Hartmann used to offer this awesome leather, but their new "belting leather" isn't near as good as their older wallets from years ago. By offering this ultra-premium leather, SBL would fulfill the needs of wallet snobs like me around the world.



3. Offer 2 card slots in each of the 4 sections of the wallet with the top card slot slightly offset from the slot beneath it to make removing cards easier. There is no need for the large pockets the SBL wallet (due to the large cash compartment), so adding extra slots for cards wouldn't make the wallet any thicker.



4. Add a panel in the cash compartment that divides it into top and bottom halves. The 2nd section would only go down half way allowing the user to put cash/checks in the bottom of the wallet and other cash/checks in the 2nd compartment in the top half in order to evenly distribute the thickness between the top and bottom.







Make these enhancements and I'll buy 50 of them for gifts and to ensure I have them for the rest of my life and my grandkids' lives! Thank you SBL for providing the best quality workmanship found anywhere. I'll be a customer for many years to come.

Got the Large leather bifold for my boyfriend and he couldn't be happier!

by

He complains about buying a wallet every year and all of them giving out. For fathers day I decided I wanted to get him something that last, I got him the Large Bifold Wallet. At first he was a little hesitant about it cause the pockets seemed tight but after he realized they stretch to fit and that he can fit all his junk cards in his one wallet! Haha.

GROW UP AND DUMP THE PLEATHER!

by

After spending the last 38 years buying a "pleather" wallet from the Men's Department of Sears, I purchased a Large Bifold Wallet in Tobacco Brown.







I have had the wallet for about three months now and it just keeps getting better- both in utility and appearance. The card slots have begun to "stretch" just a bit, but not to the point that anything could fall out. I currently keep four cards in each of the pockets and copious amounts of paper in the main "cash" area. NOTHING has ever fallen out by accident.







While functionally it is perfect, the beautiful finish of the leather is probably my favorite part. As a father, I can't wait to see what it will look like when I give it to my son some day...not too soon though!







Thanks for an amazing product.

I confess to being a leather huffer

by

Because it was sold out for Christmas, I waited a bit to get my large tobacco bifold wallet. I absolutely love it. I love the way the cards stack on top of each other rather than in vertical slots, I love the fact that there is a huge section for bills and I still have 2 big pockets for receipts and such, I love they way the new tobacco finish looks, and most importantly, I love the way it smells. I have no shame when people look at me strangely in a line when I am waiting to pay for something and stop to take a huff of my wallet. This is my third piece of Saddleback craftsmanship and it will definitely not be the last.

I have a problem

by

I have a problem. There is no cure for Saddleback Leather addiction syndrome. Your only hope is that they stop making products that you want and need. That, and you hope one day that teleportation becomes a reality, because shipping to Australia is murder on the wallet.







As for my wallet, I have a large bifold wallet in Carbon. It's absolutely the best. It's big, it's dude-ly, (I think I just made up a word), and it is likely to survive the apocalypse.







When I take it out of my pocket, to buy something, the salesperson usually is still staring at it, as I nudge them with my credit card. It's hypnotic to normal humans. (those that currently live saddleback leather free, remember that time?)







I have a whole slew of SBL items, each one is outstanding. I have given up on 'hinting' to my family, and bought my own Christmas present this year. Looking forward to receiving my Backpack, in a couple months.







Keep up the good work, there is no substitute. You can save money buying knock offs, if that's your thing. But you will ALWAYS get what you pay for.







Thankfully, there aren't many more items that I want....

Ideal wallet

by

This is for the large size:











I live somewhere rugged where the power goes out often and cash is always a necessity. The salt water wore through other wallets too fast. This leather wallet is fantastic in its ability to distribute the items evenly across my back pocket so don't get Costanza syndrome. I carry appx 7 cards spread out through the 4 pockets, and a stack of cash as my emergency fund. It has grown buttery soft and the scuff marks add to its character. I've had more comments and questions about this wallet than any other before. It is a bit over-built, but thats my style (i also carry a ZT0300 daily).

It feels right

by

I purchased the large bi-fold; it is large for a wallet. BUT, it fits in my front pocket fine, no crazy printing of a huge chunk of leather. I can fit my essential cards (ID, pictures of my kids and wife), and I can still fit the Swiss Army multi-tool card and a pocket wrench, as well as copious amounts of green backs..OK, just 50 bucks, but that's really all I need for emergencies. This wallet rocks! When I meet my super stingy high school friend at the range (been using the same "leather" wallet since high school (15 years ago), I can one up him. And I plan to keep doing that every few years.







This is the last wallet I will buy for myself, but my dad might need one... You got a fan here, keep doing what you’re doing and I don't see why we can't find a reason to buy quality leather from you here on out.

Large Bi-fold wallet

by

Excellent wallet, I received it a week ago. It has soffened up a tiny bit. I have the chestnut color, and it is a nice color. I have 3 cards in each slot, and about 8 bills (fits dozens of bills) and it has stayed very slim. In some pants it's a little hard to squeeze it out of the pocket. In jeans it's no problem. I wear 514's in 32-30 and the wallet sticks out less than 1/2 of an inch. It's a great wallet and I highly recomed it. Saddleback has great quality wallets, and even better customer service, Jodie and Tim are my favorite :)

Large Bifold

by

I purchased a large, dark coffee bifold from "Dave's Deals." I was a bit concerned about the size, but after receiving and using it for about a week, it's perfect. Because of its design, it is the flattest, most comfortable wallet I've ever used. When the tobacco color is back in stock, I'll order one of those too. The customer service was terrific and shipping was super quick. My wife liked the quality of the leather and the wallet overall and we now have a purse coming for her. Also, I don't know why my wallet was on the "Deals" page but I have not found anything wrong with its construction or anything at all.

Story

So, in the morning, as we three, clean-cut smiley white guys emerged from the cheap hotel, everybody looked at us with suspicion. The government suspected us of bringing money to or training the rebels and the rebels thought we were government spies. Why else would any sober gringo carrying a leather briefcase visit Ocosingo? Unless, of course, it’s just where the last truck we hitched a ride with dropped us off?

But it was a morbidly interesting place with the relatively fresh bullet holes and anti-government messages of the rebels on the walls. Only a few years back, Ocosingo was the site of a major bloodbath where about 150 Zapatistas and Mexican soldiers were killed in a firefight, some found shot in the back of the head after surrendering. Tensions were still high. One could make an argument for it being the least touristy town on Earth. So, shortly after our silent breakfast, we headed out.

But the cool thing was, Ocosingo wasn’t far from where we wanted to be. The massive Mayan ruins of Palenque were breathtaking, and if you looked into the jungle you could see the majority of the ruins still unexcavated.

And then when we got to the jungle waterfalls of Las Cascadas de Agua Azul, we grabbed a vine, hacked it and used it as a rope swing into the river, tarzan style. The place was amazing as the clear blue river stepped down for miles creating a series of huge waterfalls. It was my original briefcase’s first big trip of many, but it easily could have been its last.

BEST WALLET I HAVE EVER OWNED!!

by

This is the first time I have purchased a wallet from someplace other than a department store. I have gone through almost ten of those and I think my Saddleback will last several lifetimes.







I have had my Tobacco large bifold for about a month now and it is starting to break in nicely and is also starting to develop a beautiful patina. I know it will continue to get better and better with time.







I have stretched the card pockets (by adding a card every few days) so that I am up to 7 cards in each pocket on the left side. I use the right pockets for a credit card sized cellphone battery/charger (about 5 cards thick) and the other one for a credit card sized phone charger cable (about 2 cards thick).







EACH card pocket will easily hold 8 or more cards as long as you work up to it over time.







I dont carry cash so I have a metal business card case in the cash pocket on the left side and some other things in right side of the cash pocket.







I am VERY picky and... I LOVE THIS WALLET!!!







I wish I found it before wasting my money on every other wallet thats lasted me only a few years.

Everything I Had Hoped

I just received the Large Tobacco Bifold and, since I'm a Saddleback veteran, I can review it immediately (I know how it will hold up!). First let me say that I was a little nervous about ordering this color because everything else I have is Chestnut (yes, I pretty much match Dave's description of the Chestnut personality) and some of the comments I had seen online regarding leather quality.

I actually have an unused chestnut large bifold that I purchased about 18-24 months ago (just in case they stopped making them) and the thickness and feel is exactly the same. The absolute only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is they are no longer putting the inner "hidden flap" or pigskin lining on the inner part of the billfold section, which I miss. If you weren't expecting it, you'd never know and would be perfectly happy, as I in fact am.

Expectations MET!!!

by

I purchased the large bi fold. Its a great fit for anyone who leads an active lifestyle and requires the security and protection of a rugged, built for what life throws at you type package.







Its big and comfortable. I like how the contents of a typical wallet are layed out in a way that avoid the "brick in the back pocket" look and feel.







Has a deep cash pocket that keep prying eyes out and ample room for all my cards and paper. Cards fit tight and secure.







Its one of those pieces you feel good about. Its one of those pieces that will only get better with age and time. Really diggin' my new wallet and actually ordered the 1 3/4 old bull belt and and ID wallet today too.







Do your homework. Read reviews. Youtube. Etc. At the end of the day don't be suprised if you're back here ordering your own pieces. Its a great product at a great price. I know had I not done my research I would not of found Saddleback Leather. Viva la internet!!!

Finally a replacement for my 15 year old Hartmann wallet!

by

For the past 15 years, I've carried a large Hartmann vegetable-tanned wallet in natural Canadian belting leather. It is almost the exact same design and color as the SBL Large Bifold Wallet in Tobacco Brown. As my Hartmann's good looks were beginning to fade, I started looking everywhere for this same two row design (Hartmann discontinued it years ago).







I only found two options - SBL's and a black wallet on hammacher.com of unknown quality leather and cheap stitching. The very detailed product page for the SBL wallet made the decision very easy.







I think I paid around $120 for the Hartmann wallet 15 years ago, and it was worth every penny. I could carry it for another 15 years, but I just happened upon the SBL website and got excited about upgrading, since it has been so difficult to find this same style. For anyone who thinks the large wallet is overkill, let me tell you that it is well worth the switch. Your wallet will be thinner and more comfortable than it has been with the same number of cards, because there is less overlap. Also, the two row design allows a natural flex point half way down that allows the wallet to cradle your butt when you wear it without bending any cards.







Buy the Leather Bifold Wallet in the large size. You will not regret it. Personally, I like the lightest color (Tobacco Brown), because it shows the most natural characteristics of the leather and should develop the most attractive patina as the years pass by.







While I have a few suggestions for SBL to make this wallet absolutely perfect in every way, it definitely deserves 5 starts as it is. Here is what I would suggest to improve the wallet:







1. Provide a very light "natural" aniline dye option, so that the lustrous patina can start from as blank a slate as possible.



2. Offer a 100% vegetable-tanned belting leather option. Hartmann used to offer this awesome leather, but their new "belting leather" isn't near as good as their older wallets from years ago. By offering this ultra-premium leather, SBL would fulfill the needs of wallet snobs like me around the world.



3. Offer 2 card slots in each of the 4 sections of the wallet with the top card slot slightly offset from the slot beneath it to make removing cards easier. There is no need for the large pockets the SBL wallet (due to the large cash compartment), so adding extra slots for cards wouldn't make the wallet any thicker.



4. Add a panel in the cash compartment that divides it into top and bottom halves. The 2nd section would only go down half way allowing the user to put cash/checks in the bottom of the wallet and other cash/checks in the 2nd compartment in the top half in order to evenly distribute the thickness between the top and bottom.







Make these enhancements and I'll buy 50 of them for gifts and to ensure I have them for the rest of my life and my grandkids' lives! Thank you SBL for providing the best quality workmanship found anywhere. I'll be a customer for many years to come.

Got the Large leather bifold for my boyfriend and he couldn't be happier!

by

He complains about buying a wallet every year and all of them giving out. For fathers day I decided I wanted to get him something that last, I got him the Large Bifold Wallet. At first he was a little hesitant about it cause the pockets seemed tight but after he realized they stretch to fit and that he can fit all his junk cards in his one wallet! Haha.

GROW UP AND DUMP THE PLEATHER!

by

After spending the last 38 years buying a "pleather" wallet from the Men's Department of Sears, I purchased a Large Bifold Wallet in Tobacco Brown.







I have had the wallet for about three months now and it just keeps getting better- both in utility and appearance. The card slots have begun to "stretch" just a bit, but not to the point that anything could fall out. I currently keep four cards in each of the pockets and copious amounts of paper in the main "cash" area. NOTHING has ever fallen out by accident.







While functionally it is perfect, the beautiful finish of the leather is probably my favorite part. As a father, I can't wait to see what it will look like when I give it to my son some day...not too soon though!







Thanks for an amazing product.

I confess to being a leather huffer

by

Because it was sold out for Christmas, I waited a bit to get my large tobacco bifold wallet. I absolutely love it. I love the way the cards stack on top of each other rather than in vertical slots, I love the fact that there is a huge section for bills and I still have 2 big pockets for receipts and such, I love they way the new tobacco finish looks, and most importantly, I love the way it smells. I have no shame when people look at me strangely in a line when I am waiting to pay for something and stop to take a huff of my wallet. This is my third piece of Saddleback craftsmanship and it will definitely not be the last.

I have a problem

by

I have a problem. There is no cure for Saddleback Leather addiction syndrome. Your only hope is that they stop making products that you want and need. That, and you hope one day that teleportation becomes a reality, because shipping to Australia is murder on the wallet.







As for my wallet, I have a large bifold wallet in Carbon. It's absolutely the best. It's big, it's dude-ly, (I think I just made up a word), and it is likely to survive the apocalypse.







When I take it out of my pocket, to buy something, the salesperson usually is still staring at it, as I nudge them with my credit card. It's hypnotic to normal humans. (those that currently live saddleback leather free, remember that time?)







I have a whole slew of SBL items, each one is outstanding. I have given up on 'hinting' to my family, and bought my own Christmas present this year. Looking forward to receiving my Backpack, in a couple months.







Keep up the good work, there is no substitute. You can save money buying knock offs, if that's your thing. But you will ALWAYS get what you pay for.







Thankfully, there aren't many more items that I want....

Ideal wallet

by

This is for the large size:











I live somewhere rugged where the power goes out often and cash is always a necessity. The salt water wore through other wallets too fast. This leather wallet is fantastic in its ability to distribute the items evenly across my back pocket so don't get Costanza syndrome. I carry appx 7 cards spread out through the 4 pockets, and a stack of cash as my emergency fund. It has grown buttery soft and the scuff marks add to its character. I've had more comments and questions about this wallet than any other before. It is a bit over-built, but thats my style (i also carry a ZT0300 daily).

It feels right

by

I purchased the large bi-fold; it is large for a wallet. BUT, it fits in my front pocket fine, no crazy printing of a huge chunk of leather. I can fit my essential cards (ID, pictures of my kids and wife), and I can still fit the Swiss Army multi-tool card and a pocket wrench, as well as copious amounts of green backs..OK, just 50 bucks, but that's really all I need for emergencies. This wallet rocks! When I meet my super stingy high school friend at the range (been using the same "leather" wallet since high school (15 years ago), I can one up him. And I plan to keep doing that every few years.







This is the last wallet I will buy for myself, but my dad might need one... You got a fan here, keep doing what you’re doing and I don't see why we can't find a reason to buy quality leather from you here on out.

Large Bi-fold wallet

by

Excellent wallet, I received it a week ago. It has soffened up a tiny bit. I have the chestnut color, and it is a nice color. I have 3 cards in each slot, and about 8 bills (fits dozens of bills) and it has stayed very slim. In some pants it's a little hard to squeeze it out of the pocket. In jeans it's no problem. I wear 514's in 32-30 and the wallet sticks out less than 1/2 of an inch. It's a great wallet and I highly recomed it. Saddleback has great quality wallets, and even better customer service, Jodie and Tim are my favorite :)

Large Bifold

by

I purchased a large, dark coffee bifold from "Dave's Deals." I was a bit concerned about the size, but after receiving and using it for about a week, it's perfect. Because of its design, it is the flattest, most comfortable wallet I've ever used. When the tobacco color is back in stock, I'll order one of those too. The customer service was terrific and shipping was super quick. My wife liked the quality of the leather and the wallet overall and we now have a purse coming for her. Also, I don't know why my wallet was on the "Deals" page but I have not found anything wrong with its construction or anything at all.
