PRO's - This is beautiful. The craftsmanship is amazing.
CON's - The card slots are very tight. I know they should loosen with use, unfortunately they are so tight I must struggle to pull a card out. This becomes a bit embarrassing when trying to use a credit card at checkout.
I have one suggestion. I would like a hole somewhere on it so that I could attach a a wristlet strap. I normally carry my wallet in a larger purse, but there are times when it is more convenient to leave the big purse and carry only the wallet. I am not comfortable doing that without a wristlet strap to secure it. I may take it to a local leather shop and ask them to punch a hole in it for me. I already have a nice leather wristlet strap from the Love41 cosmetic bag. http://www.love41.com/Leather-Make-up-bag.
I love the wallet, the leather, the workmanship, its beautiful. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the credit card pockets and too small, with time it bent my credit card and it was always a struggle to get it in or out until eventually the card snapped. If the pockets were a tad bit more wide it would have been perfect. I'm still using it but the card goes in another pocket now.
Extremely well made - cash/receipt pockets ample, but the credit card places are very tight, though I understand that leather stretches, but I can't see the ID pocket stretching enough to fit an NC license. Maybe Texas licenses are smaller?
This wallet looks, feels and smells (oh, the smell!) amazing! It fits 14 cards (including an I.D. card), but keep in mind that YOU NEED TO BREAK-IN this wallet first in order to fit in that many cards comfortably. It will take a week or two before 3 cards to a slot on the right and and two cards to a slot on the top left come out smoothly without a struggle. I didn't care, for what is one or two weeks to a life time of easy use?
I currently have 14 cards (debit cards, credit cards, market coupon cards, Metro card etc) in this wallet and could possibly break it in further to fit 17. It also hold my check book, cash and receipts (I use the coin pouch for receipts).
When I showed my boss my new wallet, his eyes widened. He's a financial advisory, but also a camper, hiker, fly-fisher man, gun owner, former body-builder, former semi-pro football player, can even build a house! He's the manliest man I know, so when he examined my Long Trifold wallet, he said, "This is a cowboy wallet! How cool is that?! That's awesome--rugged and handsome!"
He described it as "...rugged and handsome". I call it classy and beautiful.
What would you call it?
Most reviews for this were written from the female perspective and I was thus concerned about buying it as I was unsure of how it would work for a guy. I'll save you the suspense...it's fantastic. This is my daily wallet. Yes it is large and sticks out of my pocket about 2.5 inches. Yes it's a bit bulky and may hurt to sit on for long periods of time. Yes I've learned to deal with it and have come to appreciate all it has to offer. Places for all my cards, southwest drink coupons and more. As a traveler having everything accessible is a must, and this is perfect. If you're a man considering a large wallet, get this one. If you wear a jacket or carry a bag on a regular basis, it's a no brainer. If your a larger guy like me, carrying in your back pocket isn't a big deal. Love the wallet. Love the company. God bless.
I just received my Long Tri Fold wallet in black. It is absolutely gorgeous and smells terrific! It has plenty of room for everything. I hope to have this wallet for the rest of my life. Thank you for making quality leather products.
Just received this wallet and I am truly impressed! I purchased the long trifold wallet in tobacco and it's gorgeous. There is plenty of room for all my needed items and the quality of the leather is obvious. So very glad I purchased this... they really will fight over it when I'm dead!
Bought this wallet along with the SBL Satchel in DCB just cause cause I needed a wallet and carry on bag for me when I'm on the go, as a I travel internationally a lot for work. The wallet is definitely the "BEAST" of wallets, It has great amount of room for everyday essentials, Fits my passport, checkbook and some cash easily while being filled with my ids cards and coins.
Pros: It has the space and strength to get the job done and you can easily see from the quality that this wallet will keep lasting forever.
Con: The only reason I couldn't give this a 5 star rating is because the CC slots and ID slots seem to be "perfect fight" which makes it a pain to get the cards in and out and fit the supposed 13 card hold ability and it has me yanking and tugging at my cards, Which BTW accidentally made me scratch/scuff the edges of the slots. If the CC slots and ID slot were just like a half centimeter wider. it would be comfortable right out the box. Just a suggestion.
Other than that 1 issue. I absolutely love this wallet and I cant wait to put it to work, along with my SBL Satchel.
I recently order this trifold wallet in the chestnut color and I love it! Has plenty of room for what I need. The leather was a little stiff till it works in, then its fine. I would highly recommend this wallet. Love the smell of the leather.
I recently bought this wallet and it is perfect. Been using it for a few weeks now and I it's starting to break in on the parts that I most use. Card slots are a little tight at first, but like all Saddleback leather, it will soften with use (as it is starting to with mine). The size is just right, not too big but not too small either. Just enough to carry all the essential stuff plus little more room for other items. The coin pouch is big enough to put my extra cards in as well. I use the cash compartment for my iphone 5 (for when i have no bag and am carrying only the wallet with me on quick runs to the mall) and the deep cash compartment for notes/cash. The overall quality and aesthetics is top notch. I would highly recommend this wallet.
Just received the Tri Fold wallet in Tobacco to accompany my Simple Tote in Tobacco. Absolutely beautiful, amazingly well made wallet! The Tobacco is a very rich with wonderful depth of color and compliments this wallet nicely. While the Tri Fold is relatively slim it holds quite a bit and has just the right amount of slots/pockets to keep you organized. Delicious smell of leather, quality workmanship and gorgeous color with marbling round out this wallet. Another great product from Saddleback!
I received this wallet for Father's Day from my wife in dark coffee brown. This is my fifth leatherback item and as all the other items it is built like a tank. It fits in my jeans pocket, front or back just fine. Yes a little bulky but I don't care. After about a week or so the slots are easy to get cards in and out of. This will probably be the last wallet I ever own. Thanks Dave and all the Saddleback team!!!!
I just got the trifold brown wallet to match my backpack.Very practical and gorgeous, the quality of the leather is simply incredible.
I recently purchased the Long Trifold Wallet to go with my Hobo. It's the perfect size! I purchased it in black to match my Hobo and to go with business as well as casual attire. It easily holds a checkbook and cash with just enough room for credit cards and other items. The large coin pouch is ideal for any small items that you need to carry too, making it perfect to just grab and go without always needing to carry a purse into a store or restaurant. I highly recommend the Long Trifold Wallet!
I previously bought a Saddleback Leather Hobo Crossbody Purse for my daughter. She loves it so much that I decided to get her the matching wallet. I think I collected a lifetime of "good daddy points" from my daughter.
Love it I have it in tobacco. It works great with my chestnut small tote. Thanks for the great products. May you always be blessed.
I just received this wallet and the medium bifold wallet in the mail today. Both are just beautiful. The long wallet has plenty of space and fits my essentials as well as my iPhone 6. The bifold is Christmas gift for my dad, and seeing it in person, I'm now sure he will love it! I've always loved the smell of tack shops and now I can smell that daily with my new wallet! Thank you for a great product! Now, to save up for the tote bag...
I own this wallet and the big wallet. I cant decide which i like best. When you have card slots full and try to close it, it doesnt work well so i keep cards out of the very top slip cc pockets..i would prefer the wallet to be a hair bigger to make more use of these or to add more card slots..at least 2 more. However its not a deal breaker. I make use of the big pocket in it with the rest of the cards, gift cards, and change. I use the big pocket much more than i expected. If you just want something smaller than the big wallet to swap to sometimes this is perfect if you can understand everything wont be quite as easily accessible as with the big wallet. My last praise is the closure.. i LOVE that is doesnt have a nipple. I never use the nipple on other wallets.. this one slips in and out easily but not easy enough that it will undo. Totally a keeper.
Yes! That wonderful leather smell was the first thing that hit me when I opened the box. Then I got my first glimpse of the long trifold wallet and I knew I'd made the right choice. It is perfect for my needs. The card slots are a bit snug, but they will open up over time. The slot behind the ID opening...well, not sure what purpose that serves as you can't put a card of any size there. Maybe a secret stash area for cash? I ordered this wallet specifically for my passport and very happy that if fits without getting squished on side as can happen with other similar sized "travel" wallets. Ordered it in DCB only because I prefer the light colored interior. My favorite color is chestnut, but I don't care for the dark interior. Also ordered the new cover for IPAD Air and found it to be a perfect fit. My husband has the older cover for IPAD 2 and it has worn well over the last 2 years. Overall, I love Saddleback products. Now looking at the slim wallet for my son. If you're considering purchasing from Saddleback you should go for it. You will not be sorry about your decision.
Oh. My. Goodness!!! I literally just opened this like ten minutes ago! birthday present from my fiance!!!! best gift ever!!! If you want quality, this is it!!
I really love the Long Trifold Wallet. It holds everything nicely with room to spare. There is a slot behind the ID window that is too small to fit anything into though. Overall it has great quality and design and should last me for a very long time.
Great quality and craftsmanship as usual. The design was well thought out, except for one thing. The length is too short by about a inch and a half. A 81/2x11" piece of paper won't fit in it if you fold it in thirds unless you fold over one of the ends as well. I was looking for something to put receipts in, printed off itineraries, boarding passes, etc. I really like the thinner profile and how it fits in my pockets. Just wish it was long enough to fit the paper in. A friend did comment it was nice to have boarding passes sticking out to grab as you board the plane. If I want it sticking out, I could just put it in the wallet with one end sticking out.
Overall a great wallet, carries currency nicely, passport and some credit cards all very nicely. Will teach me to read the dimensions closer next time.
I just received my trifold wallet, the smell of it is addicting. I love Saddleback products THIS IS QUALITY at its best. I don't have to worry about buying another wallet. This wallet should last me until I Die, and all my Saddleback Leather products I bought is going on my will.
This is Quality at its best, I just received my trifold wallet and I love it and it smells great. This will be the last wallet I will buy, it will last until I die. All my Saddleback leather goods will go on my will. Saddleback also has awesome customer service.
This was my Christmas present, and love it more and more! It's great to use as a clutch wallet and goes perfect with the SBL handbag too! Enjoying the new tobacco color!
