“Quality is not an act, it is a habit”
- Aristotle

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. The place looks like an old rustic Mexican village out of the 1800’s placed in the rugged mountains of Oregon. Big tall pines and firs, a huge lake with a picturesque island in the middle. Just gorgeous.



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.


We use natural markings.

This stuff is awesome

I love this stuff best quality ever. I have purcahsed my chritmas wallets for next year for sure.

Love it so far

This is the perfect minimalist wallet. I fit my DL and CHL in the ID slot, my fishing license in the slot behind that, next a few bills in the middle, and in the back 4 cards, 2 in each slot. I had heard a few complaints about credit card numbers becoming imprinted on the forward most slot, so to prevent that from potentially happening I put my credit cards in the back slot, and my flat membership cards in the front slot.

I went from a huge bifold no-name brand to this and I'm happy I did. I keep all the excess papers and junk cards in my old wallet in my truck at all times, and use my Saddleback ID Wallet for things I need every day.

I hope it ages well, because I really like it just like it is. Will try to update after a year if I'm able to.

I love the way the leather feels, the tobacco color is beautiful. Stitching is robust. Shipping was fast and it was packaged nicely.

Impressed

There is obvious quality, whether visually or via touch. Patina is apparent after only 2-3 weeks with much more to come. Break in is finally showing after 2-3 weeks and cards are starting to slide out easier but still struggle with some (although better than new). I was torn between the carbon an tobacco but something about the tobacco says vintage once full patina settles in that I could not resist. Currently it has 2 credit cards, 2 laminated insurance cards, Costco card, thick access card for work, licensee.

Perfection!

This is perfection for those in search of the perfect wallet. I love it, it's what I've been looking for. First, it's a typical saddleback product, by that I mean quality and craftsmanship. It has a slot for your drivers license, slots for credit cards, and a place for folded cash. It's fairly flat even when loaded with the aforementioned items, and small enough to fit perfectly in your front pocket. I'm hooked on saddleback products, they just seems to know what works, and works perfectly. If you're looking for something besides the traditional wallet this is precisely it. Perfection, without
question!

The perfect slim wallet!

This wallet is exactly what I was looking for. I just carry my driver's license. one debit card and a small amount of cash so it's absolutely perfect for me. It could easily accommodate more cards if I needed it to but I like to keep it as slim as possible. It's extremely well made, smells amazing and matches my Saddleback satchel! Thanks Dave!!

I love this wallet

Back in 2009 I purchased a Burberry wallet (similar design to the Front Pocket ID Wallet) and the stitching began to come off. I paid $200 for it. I called the place and they told me that the wallet only had a ONE year warranty, and to repair it they were charging me a minimum of $50. That is the last time I purchased a product for its name, and not for its quality. Then my nephew told me about Saddleback Leather and as I looked through the website, looked at the videos and read about the quality of the products I fell in love with everything, then I saw this wallet and decided to order it. I love the feeling of the leather, the look (Chestnut) of the wallet and the smell of "vaqueta" it has letting me know that it is truly top graded leather. I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase and product...I would NOT buy leather anywhere else besides Saddleback Leather.

Well made quality product

I have the black colour which is no longer available - I couldn't decide about the other colours at the time and it seemed like a safe pick. Incredibly durable and well made product. I've had mine for almost two years and it looks fantastic. I think the new "carbon" colour would be my new choice or maybe the coffee brown - both should look great with some regular use and aging.

Stop Reading This, Just Buy It

I bought this from Dave's Deals. So glad I did. I left on a business trip a few days later and I had never been happier. I had my corporate cards, ID, and cash easily accessible.

Funny, TSA was not thrilled with me trying to get my drivers license out of the ID window section. Let it stretch before you try to jam 2 or 3 in there. I held up the line well past anyones patience point, even my own. Side note.....Sadly my iPhone 5 sleeve I was using on my Moto X got lost at the TSA checkpoint. I just got the thing. My heart broke, it worked and looked awesome.

I read a review below that knocks the wallet for the way it holds cash. They're trying to fit JPY in the wallet designed for USD. I don't think I need to explain any more on why that's a fail from the start. It works fine for USD. I've packed single bills and a wad of about 15 singles. If you get an old crinkly single and try to jam it in there it's an interesting process. I was looking for ways to make this fail and I came up short, only if I created a ridiculous situation could I imagine this wallet failing.

Awesome!

I don't ever write reviews for products but after my experience yesterday I had to. Long story short I thought that I lost my wallet at the gym yesterday. The funny thing is that my first thought was "damn I lost my saddleback!" As I was cancelling the four cards I had in my wallet and dreading the ridiculous wait at the DMV for a new license, I couldn't help but mourn my loss. It had been a part of me for three years.
But lo and behold when I got home from work my tobacco, worn to a beautiful patina, wallet was on my floor in my room. I picked it up and told it I was sorry for losing it and that it would never happen again. This is the best wallet I have ever owned and I am hoping for it to stick with me for the next 100 years.

No picture of Indiana Jones Riding a Horse

I made absolutely certain that in the shipping information section of the billing process I wrote under "Shipping Requests" that I wanted to receive my new chestnut Saddleback wallet with a picture of Indiana Jones riding a horse in it. I was quite disappointed when it arrived sans the picture.

It's a great wallet though if a bit small at first. I know it'll stretch a bit to fit everything a little more comfortable so for that I give it the whole shebang... 5 tin stars.

Next time I'll take it easy on the shipping department though and simply request that my items be delivered by a midget wearing a top hat.

You don't need to read the reviews to know this is a great buy

After purchasing and thinking it over, I became nervous that the wallet would slip out of my pocket due to its size. Upon receiving it (after an extremely positive experience with customer service and shipping), I realized I needn't worry. Stays in the pocket, extremely versatile and practical due to its size but useful design and has begun to mark up beautifully as the leather comes in contact with everyday life. Also smells great. As my first purchase with SBL, I've realized its far from being my last.

My one and only for years...

I bought one of these in natural on sale probably 7-8 years ago.

It has patina'ed to a gorgeous medium brown, and has suited my minimalist carry lifestyle to a T.

This is what it holds for me - my id, my atm card, my costco card, 4 business, and about 15 bills in the $ slot.

Basically, if you like to have plenty of small bills at your disposal or have the need to carry a variety of credit cards this is probably not for you. OTOH, I'm not sure why anyone would need more.

The search is over!!!

20 years ago my chiropractor told me to switch to a front pocket wallet. That started the search as they were hard to find and usually poorly made. If I could get 3 years out of one before it broke down, I was lucky. When my Saddleback wallet arrived, I knew the search was over. I didn't need a 100 warranty to tell me that this was the best wallet I will ever buy.

Thank you Dave and team for your extraordinary craftsmanship!

Absolutely perfect!!!

This was my first experience w/ Saddleback. The Photo ID Wallet is exactly what I wanted for a front pocket wallet. I was so sure that this was going to be perfect that I bought two ... one as a future gift. I was not disappointed. There was an error in the initial shipment; Saddleback Customer Service handled it promptly to my total satisfaction. I will be a return customer!!!

Great wallet

This is my current daily carry wallet. It's pretty much exactly what you'd expect given the description in the video. It's light, but sturdy, and beautiful.

I keep 5 cards, plus my driver's licence and a thin insurance card in it right now, and it's snug. I imagine I could put a lot more in it, and the leather would stretch to accommodate them. Heck, it had to stretch a bit to accommodate what I have in it right now, but it did so beautifully.

I slip it into my back pocket, but I imagine that other people would be comfortable throwing it into a bag (or purse if you're so inclined), put into a front pocket, a shirt pocket...really anything.

All in all, I'm impressed with it, and you probably will be, too.

Best and last wallet ever!

This wallet is the best wallet I ever had. I keep 7 cards in it. Also some cash. I have put over 20 bills in it and it does its job very well. I have had it for about 6 months and it breaks in very nicely. Very durable also have a cdl license and I keep my medical card right behind the id pocket folded neatly. I have mine in carbon black nice color and it is true it does smell great.

Fantastic

I was in need of a new wallet. I have always traditionally been a bifold back wallet kind of guy. I had been starting to put the wallet in my front pocket when sitting down because it was hurting my back. Well luckily I ended up reading the reviews of this wallet and was finally persuaded.

Well, after three weeks of use I can proudly say this is the best wallet I have ever owned. I love the fact that there is no plastic or anything in front of the drivers license. Very Classy. The wallet has stretched out and I currently hold 8 cards plus some cash (plus drivers license) comfortably.

I highly recommend this product.

5 stars, but only for the old one (?)

I have 2 ID wallets, one in my beloved retired carbon black and another in chestnut. No complaints about the design. It's especially great for people like me who flash their student ID on a daily basis to get discounts and it saves me the trouble of yanking my photocopying card out from my wallet all the time. Plus I can shove my dry cleaning receipts into the money slot (I use this wallet alongside my medium bifold).

The downside is that when I compare my chestnut with my old carbon black, the carbon black-- clearly of a more recent vintage-- uses MUCH thinner leather on the ID window. I have noticed that the leather used shortly before the old black and tobacco were phased out is thinner. I've attached a photo so that yalls know what I mean.

I don't doubt that thinner ID window leather is still "fit for purpose", but don't we all like thick leather? :(

More than a wallet, a declaration!

This is more than a wallet, it's a lifestyle choice. I find that the problem with many wallets today is that they have too much space, so three months later you find you're sitting on a six inch literal pain in the ass slab of receipts and loyalty cards for lazer printing shops that inexplicably went out of business in the late 80's. So, if you want to carry around all of that trash I say go get yourself a purse, I'll keep my brilliant beautiful man's slim leather wallet of destiny thanks.

Perfect

Just got it in chestnut colour - the colour's better live! I expected it to be more reddish, which I didn't like, but I had to put up with the fact as there weren't any other available. The brownish is just right for my taste. Our banknotes are slightly smaller than the USD, so my money doesn't stick a lot, another great thing about the wallet. Now I'll be waiting for it to break in a little- I think only the ID window's stiffer than it needs to be, the rest are alright. I've got a total of 4 cards and cash. Love the engraved doggy picture. I also had a dog with which I had to part because of some problems and I miss her now... I'm glad I'll kind of.. carry Dave's dog's soul with me and it will remind me of my own doggy, too.

I don't know why people are crazy about the smell, though, it smells like rubber to me, lol. Don't care.

Simple, Beautiful

This wallet is great, simple, and beautiful. It is a huge downsize from my previous wallet, which has been so great. It fits so discretely in my pocket, but fits everything I need. And it takes almost no time to remove it from my pocket and pull out cash or a card. But obviously the best part is that it will last such a long time. I love buying a saddleback product and knowing that I won'€™t have to buy a replacement. But I've definitely gifted plenty of saddleback items, that's for sure.

A real game changer

I'd been a diehard "Costanza wallet" fan for years. I lived out of my leather bifolds/trifolds, even as they got bigger and bigger, became more uncomfortable to sit on and wore out the back packets of several suit trousers.

Then I began to notice that frequently when my kids demanded cash (as kids do these days) I didn't have any. Not that I was broke, but I just didn't have any in my wallet. It was still full of receipts and cards but... I realised that society is now on the verge of becoming cashless.

So when I ordered some SBL gear I threw in one of these ID wallets without really expecting that I could make the transition. But to my surprise and gratitude, it took me about 15 minutes of sorting through cards (and transferring surplus items to my SBL Big Wallet) to make the change.

One thing - old style Queensland driver's licences do not fit in the ID window. It's no big deal, I put my licence in the cash compartment together with a few Aussie twenties, and I expect that when I eventually have to upgrade to one of the new credit-card style licences that I will move it back to the ID slot. Or maybe not. Everything seems fine now. This is a great wallet and, I suspect, much better for the health of my lower back than my old back pocket bifold.

Best Wallet Ever! (not hyperbole, simply the truth)

I've always been a bi-fold, back-pocket wallet kind of guy. The idea of a front pocket wallet was unthinkable. However, the last couple of bi-fold wallets I'd owned continued to snap credit cards, so I started looking around for higher quality wallets about a year ago... Which is how I stumbled upon Saddleback Leather Company. My first inclination was to go with the medium bi-fold -- I had known no other kind of wallet, so why change? But something about the slim, minimalist approach of the I.D wallet beckoned to me. It appreared small, light, and looked to cut down on the bulk common with any folding wallet, yet sported enough slots and pockets for what I carry. I wrestled for a long time with what to do, but in the end chose to risk getting the I.D. wallet. From the moment I unpackaged it, I knew I'd never want another wallet and after carrying it for over 6 months I know that I'd never use another wallet. It is the best wallet I've ever owned. Seriously. That's not hyperbole -- it's simply the truth.

Now, I'm kind of like a SBL I.D. wallet evangelist -- I'm constantly showing mine to family, friends, coworkers, and sometimes total strangers who ask about my wallet (usually in a check-out line), sharing how I'll never own another wallet. Granted, I was no George Costanza in my bi-fold days; I've always had an affinity for minimalism. But if you're looking to own a well-made, slim-design, functional wallet, this is the best. You will never want to buy another wallet. It is the best money you'll every spend on a wallet -- worth every dime! So if you're in the market for a wallet or know someone who is, this is the one.

Simply the Best

I have been using a front pocket wallet for many years and have tried them from several deferent manufacturers. I just received my wallet from Saddleback Leather Company and it is by far the highest quality and best construction of any I have seen. A great product and simply better than the rest.

First Impressions Count

My wallet just arrived. I have fallen in love with it already. It's exactly how it was described, it smells and feels great. Everything is a bit stiff right now, but I'm sure it will soften with age, and I look forward to using it for the rest of my life.

the last wallet you will ever need

this is the greatest wallet ever crafted.

Just the Smell

I ordered the ID wallet and Ipad case and even before I opened the box I could literally smell the genuine leather...love it! Now back to the ID wallet. It is wonderful from what I can tell at the moment. It is still extremely stiff but will loosen up I am sure. I am having a hard time with my drivers license sliding out but again, I am sure it will stretch. I love this wallet!

Very Practical

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.

Perfect! Love it!

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.

Just Believe

I own three Saddleback products, and should have known better than to doubt. I was one of the companies biggest critics on Social Media after it decided to switch to "storied and scarred" leather without relaying a downward price adjustment to its consumers. I liked the idea of providing my own scars and stories, and thought that an already-marked up facade would detract from my enjoyment of the product. Well, last week I washed my wallet, and it came time to find a suitable replacement. With some apprehension, I found myself back on the Saddleback website. I ordered the pocket ID wallet in tobacco, and sent a follow up email requesting "an unscarred piece if possible, and otherwise the most awesome scarring you can find." Well, the wallet arrived after some USPS confusion (to which the Saddleback team reps were, as always, extremely attentive), and...it's beautiful. There's a quarter inch slash across the front, and I surprised myself by how amenable to it I was. It has a story, to be sure, but also adds another, sort of rugged and carefree dimension that is just perfect for a product in Tobacco. I might still hesitate to order a bag or other larger item with the "storied" scarring, but for a wallet I couldn't be happier. As it stands, my bag in Chestnut (which, as I understand it, still uses un-"blemished" leather) gets the job done, and my scarred Tobacco wallet does the same. As to the wallet, itself - the stitching, as usual, is sturdy and even, and the leather smells like...Saddleback. I fit 10 cards into the wallet from the get-go - the money pocket, as mentioned in other reviews, is a little tight, and there is some slight bending to some of the outer cards during this breaking-in period (nothing that looks to be permanent). On the whole - it's exactly what i wanted, and it's sure to last a heck of a lot longer than the wallet I am replacing. I am an absolute Saddleback convert. I look for things to criticize - and to be sure there will always be a few - but this is a company that has earned my trust and I company that I regret questioning. I've been disciplined with my spending, but it's hard to pick up one Saddleback product and not start scouting out the next. I believe, and you should too.

Nice

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.

What more could you want?

This is perfect for anyone. I used to carry a large bi-fold with cards, cash, ID's, receipts, business cards, stuff that I didn't know was there and I certainly would never need or use again. I didn't most of that. I needed something that is small, could carry my identification, a debit card, and a little cash. This easily accomplishes this. It is perfect for college. I would easily pay double.

Finally Converted

This is my third SB i.d. wallet in four years. I have been trying to go minimalist for years but couldn't quite manage to convert.

Converting to a front pocket wallet took a accident that fractured my tailbone. Because of the accident I switched from right hip pocket bi-fold carry to left hip pocket and developed sciatica.

I received this as a birthday present from my wife and couldn't be happier.

We live in the digital age of smartphones, tablets, etc. and everything can be stored on those devices.

I got the new tobacco color and it looks fabulous! The leather appears to be a lot thicker around the i.d. window slot. I confirmed this when I compared it to my daughters three year old SB i.d. wallet. My daughter loves her wallet by the way.

The wallet is super stiff especially around the i.d. slot and is difficult to remove my drivers license, but I know it will loosen up in time.

I plan to give a few of these as presents in the near future.

Great if used right.

This wallet is fantastic for right kind of person. For a front pocket wallet person like me, it was a great call.

Like most saddleback products, the leather takes some time to break in. Though this is intiially annoying with the card and especially the money sections of the wallet, break-in makes them easier to use over time.

I find mine excellent for accomodating about 10 or so cards at a time (plus license in the front), and a FEW bills.

Build quality is excellent. A year in and I can tell that this wallet is not going to quit where many previous wallets already had by this point in their lives.

Size is fantastic. You can drop this in your pocket and almost forget it's there alongside your other essentials.

As I noted above, you can only really feasibly keep a few bills in this wallet. The wallet space for bills is tight. Beyond a couple and you may find bills sticking slightly out the top. A few more than that and it's just going to be a mess. If you're someone that carries a lot of bills around this may not be the wallet for you.

I would also note that if you face a credit card's numbers outward in the bottom slot, the wallet will eventually show the numbers grooved in a bit there. I would recommend turning in the bottom outer card so the numbers face inward if this small cosmetic issue bothers you.

When I have need for cash I use Saddleback's Small Bifold instead (a fair bit bigger but still fits in a man's front pocket without much difficulty, holds about the same amount of cards but can much more easily hold cash). However, I try to carry little cash whenever necessary because I enjoy the ID wallet's card-carrying capacity and small size so much.

If you understand and can work with its cash limitations, this wallet's size , build quality, and price point or unbeatable and I would highly recommend it!

Great wallet!

I have been using the ID front pocket wallets for over a year now and love them! I have one in black and one in tobacco color that gets switch back and forth depending on the mood I'm in at the time.
In the I.D. Slot goes my drivers license, LTC and my medical insurance card. On the other side, my credit card and AAA card. In the second slot my two ATM cards. In the cash slot I have have had up to $300 in twenties when going on a trip so I know it fits. Although I don't normally carry that much.
I am going to purchase another one in dark coffee brown to match the back pack that my lovely wife gave me for Christmas last year.
These wallets are awesome! Try one today you won't be disappointed !

Didn't meet expectations

I have a love/hate relationship with this wallet. I purchased this in dark coffee brown for the regular price of $33 last month(Sept 2013)
Cons
-The height needs to be 1 more cm. The height of bills in Japan are a bit more than those in the U.S.(where I'm from). It's annoying that my bills stick out a bit from the middle cash pocket. The product details say "cash sticks up just enough to grab" as if this is a good feature. Well, if I wanted my cash to stick up a bit, I wouldn't insert them so deep into the pocket! If I have U.S. bills, only two or three bills if inserted would be flush. But once you have more than five U.S. bills, they start popping out of the wallet. Annoying indeed.
-Inside the middle cash pocket about 1cm before the bottom, there is thick quality threading that is used to sew the pig skin into the wallet. When I put cash into this slot, the bills usually get caught on this thick threading, especially if my wallet is full and especially if it's one or two bills only. This is annoying because it prevents the bills from sliding into the bottom of the pocket completely. If I have a wad of about five folded bills, they don't get caught.
-One the side with two card slots, there's a design flaw. When I insert my card completely into the top slot and try to take it out, the top edge of the card gets caught on the thick quality threading. This would probably happen on the slot of the other side as well but I don't use this pocket nearly as much. I typically try to take the card out with my one thumb by sliding it up and out but the threading prevents me from doing this. Rather than jab my index finger behind my card and pulling it out between my thumb(with the wallet full, this would be difficult), I have to always be conscious not to fully insert the card. This way, the top of the card lies flush with the wallet and the threading doesn't get in the way and catch anything.
Pros
-Awesome leather quality
-Great leather smell
-Small and unnoticeable in your pocket
-Lined with pig skin in some places to last for a very long time
Conclusion: I would only buy this to use as a wallet for gym cards, train passes, etc. It does a lousy job at holding cash. The quality threading does get in the way.

Extremely satisfied

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.

Totally worth 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.

My Last Wallet

I've had mine for 4 or 5 years now. Perfect front pocket wallet. I find when I have a lot of bills, I have to line them up to get them to fold neatly, but otherwise it's no problem for me. I still admire it and enjoy its craftsmanship and patina.

Better for cards than cash

I like everything about this wallet (price, size, slimness, quality) except for one thing - it's really hard to get your cash in it with a single fold, and double folding makes things a bit thick and hard to work with. It's not that it's not tall enough for the cash, it's that unless you have a huge roll of very crisp bills, they don't have the strength to go all the way down into the cash compartment (you can test this by double folding them, and they go all the way down just fine). Maybe once it's broken it it'll be better? It'd be more of an issue if I use cash more.

Also, other reviews mention the looseness of some of the ID pocket - if you don't keep the wallet very stuffed and keep only one thing in that pocket, that could be an issue. I keep two IDs in that pocket (driver's license and university ID) and it's perfect - I like being able to slide them out with one hand.

Perfection!

This is the best $33 I've spent! I carry six cards and a few bills in this beauty. It's small enough to be completely concealed in dress pants but large enough to hold all I need to carry eventhough it will hold 12 cards easily after it breaks in. I really enjoy the fact that it's unique and made of 100% full grain leather! Gone are the days of me carrying wallets that are made of cheap leather that's lined with fabric that are more expensive than SBL's ID wallet! The best part about it is it will look so much prettier and healthier in a few months while still being tougher than my Seattle Seahawks defense! :).
If you're on the fence about pulling the trigger I say you should stop reading and start buying. Dave and his family have built an incredible business and their customer service is equalled to nobody! My experience has been that leather owners are accepted in a wonderful family! I'll be in San Antonio later this month and it would be awesome to meet Dave. One day maybe. I purchased the new Tobacco color and could not have been happier when it arrived in my mailbox a few days after placing my order with Meridith! She was great at answering all my questions! I now see a large classic briefcase in tobacco in my near future! I hope SBL continues their great quality merchandise and stays true to who they are.......which is PHENOMINAL! Keep doing what your doing!!! I'm a customer for life!

Best Bet on the Market

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!

Last Wallet I'll Ever Need

I love the size of this wallet. It's perfect for what I need. Just a few different card slots, a place for case when i happen to have, which isn't often, and an ID window. i really like having an ID window, and this one is great: no plastic to get scratched or dirty, and a great size to the window. And it's Saddleback, so I know it'll last forever.

Leather ID Wallet

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!

great product

This product is amazing! Highly recommend it.

Wonderful!

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.

Wonderful!

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.

Great

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.

Great Slim Wallet....

Great slim wallet.

This is the best wallet that I have ever owned.

Holds all my cards and cash.

Thanks, Saddleback Leather!

Perfect

After a year of use, the leather has become so buttery soft. This is the perfect minimalist wallet.

The one

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.

Great Wallet

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!

Awesome product

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.

Perfect Size

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!

Perfect

I don't like a big wallet. I have had ID wallets, money clip wallets, and folding wallets. Nothing has come close to this for initial quality. I was worried it might not hold enough. It's got plenty of room for at least 6 cards, drivers license, and at least 5-7 folded bills. Everything I need and incredibly well constructed. We will see how long it lasts, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.

Just what I wanted

I have been a loyal customer to Moneyclamp for over 10 years. In that time, I have gone thru 3 wallets. I wrote them asking about a thinner version of their wallet, but something sturdy that will last. I didn't hear from them and stumbled upon Saddleback. I bought this wallet and when I opened the package, it was exactly what I was looking for. Thick enough so it will withstand several years of wear. Not too many slots for credit cards and a plastic less slot for your ID. I'm a SFC In the US Army, and I have to pull my ID several times a day, and it is just what I need; also I only have 2 credit cards. This is a slam dunk if you ask me.

Great Wallet

Recived this wallet about a couple of days ago. I have been thinking of getting this wallet and I finally pulled the trigger. So far, there are no regrets, the leather is very tough and seems durable. I like to keep my EDC (every day carry) as minimal and this ID wallet does that while carrying everything I need and eliminating unnecessary bulk. I am very pleased with the workmanship and am excited to see how it ages and develops a nice patina. Great product and I would reccommend this and this company, especially with a 100yr warranty, to my family and friends. I cant stop smelling the leather.

P.S. A tip on making it easier to put/remove cash inside when you first get it, isi to put the cash first(folded in half) before you put in your cards. Also, take your bills and fold it twice and leave it there for a few days.

Perfect for front pocket carry

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.

The last wallet this minimalist will ever buy

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.

Great Gift from Wife

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.

Your back will thank you

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.

Great minimalist wallet

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.

Do Yourself A Favor

BUY THIS WALLET!!!

REASONS:

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.

Perfect ID Wallet

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.

Perfect Birthday Day

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!

Perfect Thin Wallet

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!

Excellent

I really have nothing to add to the reviews about the wallet. So I will say something about the people behind the wallet.

The service I received was excellent. They were very helpful, friendly, and quickly answered any question I had. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

And the wallet is excellent.

Need another!

Bought one in Coffee for myself, but my wife confiscated it. She said it was exactly what she has been looking for. Not too big, not too small. Now she wants one in EACH of the beautiful colors to match her growing collection of Saddleback Leather. You guys have become a one-stop gift shop!

The best $33 you'll spend

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.

Love It!

I love this wallet. I wanted something minimalistic, slim, so it doesn't turn into a Costanza in the pocket. Here's the best part. I have lost it TWICE, and both times a good Samaritan has returned it. I could replace the cards, I can get a new license, but the loss of the wallet hurt. The leather is holding up. I did find that if you randomly put more cards then you normally use, it will stretch a bit, then when you downsize, the cards are a bit loose for a week or so. I stick to two cards in each slot now.

Goodbye George Costanza!

I always had a problem hoarding stuff in my wallet. It was especially unsightly because I carried it in my front pocket. I decided it was time to look for a minimalist style wallet, but I wanted it to be nice. I searched everywhere and looked at all different brands. I even bought 2 others from different companies and sent them back. Then I came across Saddleback. I was amazed at the quality, craftsmanship, and customer service. Not to mention the amazing warranty on the products. This is the best money I ever spent on a wallet. This was the first Saddleback product I purchased, but it won't be my last. I think a matching belt would go nicely with my new wallet! If you're thinking about getting one...DO IT...you will NOT be disappointed!

Really impressed

I've only been using this wallet for a few days, but I am completely satisfied with my purchase. The price tag is negligible when you factor in the convenience and great looks. Furthermore, the service was friendly, and Saddleback definitely justifiably believes in the quality of their products.

Best and Last Wallet I'll Ever Own

I've owned this wallet for two and a half years now and it's still going strong. I'm thinking of buying more for a gift for my sons, a wallet that will last them a life time.

outstanding!!!

This is an outstanding leather wallet! I have owned the same wallet for a few years now and it started to frail and crack. turns out it was made from some cheap stuff. right out of the packaging I could tell that this is really nice leather, and the stitching is superb. I know this will last me a very long time! Customer service was outstanding, seriously; you will regret not getting this amazing mark of craftsmanship.

Wallet Wonder!

Just another in a long line of items I've ordered from these guys. Love it, love it, love it! Awesome customer service too. You guys are the bomb!

In love...

Why did I ever carry a bigger wallet? I've only had it a day, but I'm in love with this thing. It's perfectly sized to fit all the basics you really need. I have 8 cards, a few bills, and a couple notes tucked away in this wallet. It is also extremely well constructed. To echo another review, the smell of the treated leather is awesome. I had to pass it around my office. Everyone loved it.

A note about the color: I purchased the "Tobacco Brown" and it does not match the color of the picture on this site. Mine is a littler darker. I actually prefer the darker color of the one I received, though.

Last wallet I'll ever buy

I purchased this wallet in chestnut to match everything else I've purchased from SBL and it's aged beautifully. It's amazing what I've discovered that I don't actually need to carry around with me.

I currently carry 8 driver's license type cards (size & thickness) and an average of 5 bills folded in half.

I've had it stuffed with $500 worth of $20 bills with limited success just to give an idea of capacity.

I will leave a warning that long term over-stuffing will result in bent cards. use it for the purpose and capacity it was made for and you shouldn't have any issues.

Awesome purchase!!

I was looking for a thin / low profile wallet but also wanted high quality leather. I stumbled on this and was hoping for something just average.

I am literally blown away by the quality of this wallet. This thing is going to last forever and I love the craftsmanship!!

Thank you for this great product!

Love it!

I'm not a 'carry my wallet' kind guy. Or at least I wasn't until I got this ID Wallet. I've had it about a month now and really enjoy it. It makes me want to carry and use it. It's thin, sleek and manly!

Wonderful Service & Wallet

This wallet is much nicer than my previous bulky bifold. Fits in my pocket nicer, much more simply built, and aesthetically pleasing. Great quality craftsmanship and durability, plus a 100-year warranty to back it up! Not only that, but the amazing employees helped immediately with my shipping fee problem. This quality service and product is incomparable for the price I paid anywhere else. Great business, hope to buy from you guys again!

light wallet for small pocket

It is my 4-th product by Saddleback and it is one of my the most lovely wallet.
Very light and easy to use, especially if you don't need coins.
It easy keeps more then 10 notes + 4 debit/credit cards + ID (or driving license).
I use it in my trips everyday and very satisfied with it.
I very recommend this product for people who needs tiny wallet and prefer to use cards.

Awesome Wallet!

This is just a great wallet. I received it in the mail today, and can't believe the high quality associated with this product. I have purchased the same style from another well known competitor, and let me say that their wallet doesn't come close to the quality of the Saddleback wallet.

Can't wait to buy another Saddleback product in the near future!

Thank you Saddleback!!

Excellent Product!

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.

Very satisfied

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!

Just What I Was Looking For

This style of wallet is exactly what i was looking for. And the quality is fantastic. Once it breaks in and forms to what keep in there, it gets even better. I won't ever need another one.

A Perfect Wallet

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!

Best Wallet Ever!!!!

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.

Perfect!

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.

Wow

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.

Best Wallet Ever!

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!

Great Basic Wallet!

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!

A Perfect Pocket Companion

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.

Great front pocket wallet

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.

Love it!

Well designed, well built, stylish, shipping was super fast. Quite pleased, would purchase from here again.

My Son wanted this after he saw...

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!!!

Musically yours,

Eddie in INDY

A high quality minimal wallet

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.

Just what I was looking for!

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.

Simple beauty

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. :)

Just what I was looking for!

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!

Made me a believer!

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.

Nice and thin

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 love mine

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.

Finally....the perfect wallet!!!!

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.

Good for ladies, too!

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.

Couldn't be happier

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.

Leather ID Wallet

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!

The best $33 you'll spend

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.

great product

This product is amazing! Highly recommend it.

Wonderful!

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.

Wonderful!

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.

Great Slim Wallet....

Great slim wallet.

This is the best wallet that I have ever owned.

Holds all my cards and cash.

Thanks, Saddleback Leather!

Great

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.

Perfect

After a year of use, the leather has become so buttery soft. This is the perfect minimalist wallet.

The one

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.

I don't like a big wallet. I have had ID wallets, money clip wallets, and folding wallets. Nothing has come close to this for initial quality. I was worried it might not hold enough. It's got plenty of room for at least 6 cards, drivers license, and at least 5-7 folded bills. Everything I need and incredibly well constructed. We will see how long it lasts, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.

Just what I wanted

I have been a loyal customer to Moneyclamp for over 10 years. In that time, I have gone thru 3 wallets. I wrote them asking about a thinner version of their wallet, but something sturdy that will last. I didn't hear from them and stumbled upon Saddleback. I bought this wallet and when I opened the package, it was exactly what I was looking for. Thick enough so it will withstand several years of wear. Not too many slots for credit cards and a plastic less slot for your ID. I'm a SFC In the US Army, and I have to pull my ID several times a day, and it is just what I need; also I only have 2 credit cards. This is a slam dunk if you ask me.

Great Wallet

Recived this wallet about a couple of days ago. I have been thinking of getting this wallet and I finally pulled the trigger. So far, there are no regrets, the leather is very tough and seems durable. I like to keep my EDC (every day carry) as minimal and this ID wallet does that while carrying everything I need and eliminating unnecessary bulk. I am very pleased with the workmanship and am excited to see how it ages and develops a nice patina. Great product and I would reccommend this and this company, especially with a 100yr warranty, to my family and friends. I cant stop smelling the leather.

P.S. A tip on making it easier to put/remove cash inside when you first get it, isi to put the cash first(folded in half) before you put in your cards. Also, take your bills and fold it twice and leave it there for a few days.

The last wallet this minimalist will ever buy

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.

Perfect for front pocket carry

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.

Your back will thank you

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.

Great minimalist wallet

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.

Perfect ID Wallet

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.

Perfect Birthday Day

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!

Excellent

I really have nothing to add to the reviews about the wallet. So I will say something about the people behind the wallet.

The service I received was excellent. They were very helpful, friendly, and quickly answered any question I had. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

And the wallet is excellent.

outstanding!!!

This is an outstanding leather wallet! I have owned the same wallet for a few years now and it started to frail and crack. turns out it was made from some cheap stuff. right out of the packaging I could tell that this is really nice leather, and the stitching is superb. I know this will last me a very long time! Customer service was outstanding, seriously; you will regret not getting this amazing mark of craftsmanship.

In love...

Why did I ever carry a bigger wallet? I've only had it a day, but I'm in love with this thing. It's perfectly sized to fit all the basics you really need. I have 8 cards, a few bills, and a couple notes tucked away in this wallet. It is also extremely well constructed. To echo another review, the smell of the treated leather is awesome. I had to pass it around my office. Everyone loved it.

A note about the color: I purchased the "Tobacco Brown" and it does not match the color of the picture on this site. Mine is a littler darker. I actually prefer the darker color of the one I received, though.
