Because I carry cash, I prefer this over the ID wallet for front pocket carry.

by -

SBL was recommended to me through /r/buyitforlife. I purchased the small black bifold wallet. It is a beautiful wallet with a simple design, that is functional and very durable, and works well for front pocket carry. The small bifold when closed is not much wider than the ID wallet, and just a hair thicker. Because I carry and frequently use cash, I prefer the small bifold over the ID wallet - even though the ID wallet has a cash pocket, I've found cash is much easier to keep in order and/or quickly stuff back into the small bifold. I would recommend this wallet, I already have.

Wow!

by -

My wallet showed up yesterday, and boy, it's even nicer than I anticipated. It smells great and is very flexible right out of the gate. The stitching is just about perfect, and the size is perfect for my needs. I have about 4 cards on each of the sides, which fit nicely, and I could probably get a few more on each side if need be. The cash carrying section is perfect for a reasonable amount of bills. I'm pretty excited about this thing. I'm looking forward to the comments I get on it, and I can't wait to recommend you guys. Thanks for the great service (via the chat feature), and the quick shipping time. It even showed up a day earlier than expected!

Perfection in small

by -

This was my second wallet after i bought ID (wonderful wallet) because i like cash more than cards.



After using it about 6 months i can only say PERFECT!



Fits in front pocket, not to bulky if you carry it in back pocket.



Holds great 5 cards and bout 20-25 bills. Euro bills of 5, 10, 20 fits great.



I only regret the fact that the wallet has no coin pouch, because in Europe the change is mostly in coins...



The chestnut color is amazing, and the smell still exist



Be sure that if you manage to add coin pocket in similar wallet that I will be the buyer 3rd time!







Regards,

Thumbs up!

I have been using the front pocket wallet for awhile now. I like it but I wanted to try this bifold. I've carried a bifold most of my life and I prefer the look and feel. As others have pointed out, it's only a little larger than the front pocket wallet and the footprint in my front pocket looks and feels about the same. The leather was pliable when it arrived. The leather and stitching look great. I have five cards in each side and ten bills in the bill compartment. Everything fits with room to spare.







Obviously this is not the best size if you carry a lot of plastic and / or bills. On the other hand, if you want something more minimalist but prefer the bifold design over the front pocket style this is a great choice.

Great Wallet

by -

I was hesitant at first about ordering this wallet; however, once it arrived in the mail, my mind was put at ease. I was not sure if I'd like the inner design of the wallet in light of how the cards lay. Upon receiving it in the mail, I immediately felt pleased with my decision to go with tobacco (I've only ordered products in dark coffee brown). The leather was soft yet stiff (can't wait to work it in) and it smelled great. The wallet holds everything I need it to: roughly 3-4 cards on each side and some cash. Looks like a keeper!







I would recommend this leather company to anyone. I own a 4-stitch belt, large Moleskine cover, thin briefcase, business card wallet, and an I.D. wallet. I thoroughly enjoyed the I.D. wallet that I bought back in the summer of 2012; however, it was the first time I tried something so minimalistic. This summer I've decided to go back to the bifold without compromise to the minimalist kind of style. This small bifold does the trick.







I'm glad I stumbled upon Saddleback while surfing the web some years back. If I need a leather product and Saddleback sells it, I know who's getting my business.

Absolutely Love It

by

This is my first purchase from Saddleback. I bought a small bifold wallet since my old one was wearing out, and I got the small one because I mainly just use a card to make purchases. I love the design and the quality of Saddleback. I will definitely return for future purchases.

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

by

I was sick of spending too much on wallets that only lasted a couple years. I got the small Bi-fold and love it. Nice and thin but with plenty of space for my stuff. Love the carbon color. Only problem is now my belt looks terrible next to it and needs to be replaced. I can't say enough good things about this Wallet. Definitely a must have. I do wish it had the pig skin on both sides of the money pocket so the bills slipped in easier, but that is not a complaint.

Best Wallet Ever!

by

I have a few of Dave's items (including the credit card wallet) but moved to a city where cash is used more often than credit cards, so it was time to get a new wallet.







I am still amazed at the quality of Saddleback Leather's products. The wallet fits everything I need it to (small bifold) and fits easily in my front pocket.







Thanks for making another great product! I'll be buying more soon.

Best Wallet EVER!

by

My girlfriend gave me the small bifold as an early xmas gift. My first thoughts when I took it out of the packaging were "WOW"! The stitching is VERY durable, it appears to be sewn with nylon thread, the wallet is thick and looks very robust. It's quite small. It dissapears in my pocket. Thank you Saddleback Leather!

Best wallet I've ever had.

by

It started when I opened the box and the strong leather scent hit me. I knew I had something good. It looked good new but now that I've had some time to break it in, it looks fantastic. I got the small and it is exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely be buying Saddleback in the future.

Best wallet I've ever owned!

by

I just received my small bifold in chestnut to replace my lost medium bifold. I love the quality and craftsmanship. It is second to none. While I hated losing my medium bifold I replaced it with the small because I wanted something a bit lower profile. I am so glad I did and I couldn't be happier! Saddleback is exactly the type of company I love to support. They represent top of line with no compromises. Keep up the great work!

Don’t think twice, just buy it.

by

Bought a small bifold wallet in tobacco. Simply love it. Beautifully made - worth every penny. Haven’t seen a wallet as well made here in Britain. Will be saving up to buy more saddleback stuff, it’s well worth it even with the international shipping.

First Purchase and I am a convert.

by

I have been looking at this site since the bifold wallet was recommended in a copy of money sense magazine up here in the great white North (or in other words a very long time). I finally took the plunge and purchased a small bifold wallet for myself and a long Trifold wallet for my wife.







We love them and expect to make many more purchases in the future as we replace our current items for saddleback leather quality.







If your like me and use just cards and the occasional cash to navigate through life, then you will be very pleased with the small bifold wallet. All my cards fit nicely and they are incredibly easy to access. I enjoy the small footprint of space that the wallet occupies in my pocket. Like I said earlier, I am a convert.







LH

Love it.

by

I got my small bifold today. It is awesome. I was on the hunt for "my" wallet for years. I bought wallets all over the world. In Germany, Italy, Cyprus, Spain and France. I wasn't able to find a wallet I wanted to keep for longer than a year.



I'm sure I found it with the Saddleback wallet. It already looks amazing and has more character to it than every wallet I ever owned before.



I ordered it in Tabacco Brown and can't wait to see the patina.



New lifetime customer

by

I purchased the small bifold in tobacco a few months ago, it is a great addition to my edc. It's comfortable, it holds all I need it to hold, and I absolutely LOVE how the tobacco looks over time. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a quality wallet that's just the right size, and quality well worth the price. Since purchasing I find I am constantly telling people about the quality products offered by saddleback, and its refreshing to find a company that will not cut corners in their final product!

New Leather







Small Bi-fold Wallet (Carbon) ***this review***















For those new to Saddleback Leather, this is a well made wallet that will outlast any of the name brands out there for sure. The Carbon color is a nice mellow black that shows some brown hues but it is not at all a brown. The wallet takes time to break in, and you will need to use it for months and months before it is completely broken in. You can speed the break in process with various softening/conditioning products that are mentioned on this site and around the web if you chose.















Now for those who have shopped at Saddleback over the years, this wallet is very good but when comparing it to my older wallets here are the changes and my comments.















1. The leather is thinner, not by a huge amount but it is definitely a less bulky wallet.







2. The Pig skin (leather) is much, much more supple the previous pig skin. The old version always seemed very tough and coated with something that never really allowed it too break in naturally.







3. The new leather is also much more supple as compared to the org. leather. I am under the impression that this is mainly due to the reduction in thickness vs. any difference in the leather quality.







4. The pig skin (leather) lining is only on one side of the billfold. This bothers me as it seems like a revenue / margin tacit. I also think it makes the billfold appear 1/2 done as compared to my older ones.















Summary, I like the wallet very much. Particularly the new carbon color as compared to the 'old' black which was well..very, very black. I also like the reduction in thickness too and do not believe this impacts the overall durability in any meaningful way. I am disappointed with the pig lining only being on one side of the bill-fold which I DO think is more about per unit cost savings vs. anything else. I rate this a four out of five stars, which would have been a five star rating except for the pig skin lining issue that has triggered my OCD.

One year in, still a beautiful piece

by

Received my Small dark coffee brown bifold a year ago and is in amazing condition due to the quality, robust material. The stitching is perfect and hasn't frayed or loosened what so ever.







I prefer to travel light, so I opted for the small and I do not regret my decision at all. I carry four cards, a few business cards and a few notes. The size means the wallet sits comfortably in any pocket, whether jeans, joggers or shorts. Only snag is the cash notes I carry are too tall for the wallet and stick out the top slightly (I live in UK, England), this leads me to fold my notes. I don't mind this small trade for the amazing quality (and customer service) I got from this company.







Since the time of buying this wallet I have also bought a Hobo Crossbody for my mother as a gift - just as excellent, loves it.

Reliable and High Quality

by

I have the small bifold. This is a great wallet! I've had it since Christmas 2012 and it has softened a lot and darkened slightly, and it looks great. I have 3 cards in each pocket at the moment and they fit easily. I just checked and I could squeeze all 6 into the one pocket. so if you have lots of cards it will still fit them all. Its very thin as well, so it doesn't really stick out in my pocket. Mine has been in a bag with wet gear and dried out as though it didn't happen. I've taken it daily to school for a year and 4 months and it's still going well!

Small Bifold Wallet-Chestnut

by

I bought the "Small Bi-fold Wallet-Chestnut". My chiropractor told me never to use a wallet in my back pocket. This one fits fine in my front pocket. I've read that other people use the med bi-fold as a front pocket wallet as well but I think that would be stretching it for me. I'm very pleased with the small size, it holds all I need. The chestnut color on my wallet is not a perfect match to the color of my "Front Pocket Backpack-Chestnut” and my "Old Bull Belt 1 3/4-Chestnut" my wallet's color is lighter. But I do like the color. The inside where the bills go in, one side has liner and the other does not. The side without liner is rough and has loose leather strands/fibers. I'm not sure if it will smooth out with time. The wallet has a solid and stiff feel to it which I like, because I know I will be breaking it in with use. The smell of my wallet is nice but not as nice as my backpack's, they have different leather aromas. I don't know why but all 3 of my leather pieces smell different. Overall I love this wallet and I know it is going to last a very long time...

Small Bifold - Best Wallet I've Ever Bought

by

I bought this wallet because I was tired of paying $30 every few years for a wallet that had good leather but fabric lining that would always tear.







Best $50 I've ever spent. (Well... except for the time I went to Vegas and turned $50 into a lot more.) First, the design is fantastic. There's no better way to keep your cards safe than having their pockets face the bend of the wallet. Second, this thick and durable. When it was brand spankin new, it was difficult to shove bills into the crease, but after a year and a half, it's more pliable, and I've been able to stuff thirty bills into it.







What you should know:







1) It starts off stiff, so anticipate carrying fewer bills until you break it in.







2) It will slowly bend your credit cards. They'll still work, but if you plan on using them as coasters once they've expired, the coasters won't be flat.







3) The card pockets will stretch. I don't think this makes much of a difference since the cards have no way of escaping your wallet unless if you decide to hold the wallet opened and shake it.















Oh, and I got it for my brother in law in black (mine is chestnut) and he loves his. Hell yes I'd recommend this product.







Small bifold - DCB

by

I ordered this wallet along with an ID wallet (Carbon), a tote and wallet for the GF, and the list is continuing! I carry a wallet in my front pocket due to back issues and needed something that would not look too bulky considering I stack my smartphone below it in my left front pants pocket (my keys, chapstick and change in the other). I wavered between this and the Medium bifold and pulled the trigger on this one. It is the perfect choice and not too bulky, even when combined with my phone in my jeans or Dickies pockets. This wallet is extremely well made. It has heft and impeccable build quality, yet is not too stiff and won't require a painful break-in. I hold three cards in each side along with paper medical & dental cards, 2 car registrations and 2 insurance cards. There is room for more cards. As is, the wallet closes flat when sitting on my nightstand (without break-in) and the cards on both sides don't even come in contact with each other when closed (I know some people have had concerns with card breakage in other older designs). I don't see how this can possibly be an issue with this wallet.







DCB wasn't my first choice in colors but Tobacco wasn't available at the time. This is a nice rich color (very dark). I do prefer colors that stand out a bit more and have ordered the Small Bifold in Tobacco. I will not kick my DCB wallet to the curb and will likely switch between the two, along with my ID Wallet in Carbon. I like having a variety to chose from and tend to collect nice things such as these. One thing I know for sure is that all of my Saddleback products will outlast me!

Small Bifold is Perfect

by

The small bifold is perfect, I think. Sturdy but nice and slim. It's breaking in nicely and is about 7/16 of an inch thick with 7 cards in it (no cash). It's starting to taper down really nicely on the sides and is very comfortable in my back pocket. It looks to me like the inside and card slot leather is thinner than older photos that I've seen online which is an upgrade as far as I'm concerned, as long as it hold up just as well. Based on what I've seen so far I'm not worried at all! Thanks Saddleback!

Small Bifold Wallet

by

As soon as I opened the package I saw the small (and relatively thin) bifold wallet. The leather was beautiful and the "build" is solid and it feels every bit as durable as promised. I only have 6 cards (3 on each side) and they fit perfectly. It feels nice in the pocket (back pocket for me) and is small enough that I could use in the front if I needed to. I am extremely happy with my purchase and look forward to buying more Saddleback Leather products.

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.

Perfection in small

by -

This was my second wallet after i bought ID (wonderful wallet) because i like cash more than cards.



After using it about 6 months i can only say PERFECT!



Fits in front pocket, not to bulky if you carry it in back pocket.



Holds great 5 cards and bout 20-25 bills. Euro bills of 5, 10, 20 fits great.



I only regret the fact that the wallet has no coin pouch, because in Europe the change is mostly in coins...



The chestnut color is amazing, and the smell still exist



Be sure that if you manage to add coin pocket in similar wallet that I will be the buyer 3rd time!

I would recommend this leather company to anyone. I own a 4-stitch belt, large Moleskine cover, thin briefcase, business card wallet, and an I.D. wallet. I thoroughly enjoyed the I.D. wallet that I bought back in the summer of 2012; however, it was the first time I tried something so minimalistic. This summer I've decided to go back to the bifold without compromise to the minimalist kind of style. This small bifold does the trick.







I'm glad I stumbled upon Saddleback while surfing the web some years back. If I need a leather product and Saddleback sells it, I know who's getting my business.

Best Ever!!!

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!

One year in, still a beautiful piece

Received my Small dark coffee brown bifold a year ago and is in amazing condition due to the quality, robust material. The stitching is perfect and hasn't frayed or loosened what so ever.







I prefer to travel light, so I opted for the small and I do not regret my decision at all. I carry four cards, a few business cards and a few notes. The size means the wallet sits comfortably in any pocket, whether jeans, joggers or shorts. Only snag is the cash notes I carry are too tall for the wallet and stick out the top slightly (I live in UK, England), this leads me to fold my notes. I don't mind this small trade for the amazing quality (and customer service) I got from this company.







Since the time of buying this wallet I have also bought a Hobo Crossbody for my mother as a gift - just as excellent, loves it.

I have the small bifold. This is a great wallet! I've had it since Christmas 2012 and it has softened a lot and darkened slightly, and it looks great. I have 3 cards in each pocket at the moment and they fit easily. I just checked and I could squeeze all 6 into the one pocket. so if you have lots of cards it will still fit them all. Its very thin as well, so it doesn't really stick out in my pocket. Mine has been in a bag with wet gear and dried out as though it didn't happen. I've taken it daily to school for a year and 4 months and it's still going well!

Small Bifold Wallet-Chestnut

by

I bought the "Small Bi-fold Wallet-Chestnut". My chiropractor told me never to use a wallet in my back pocket. This one fits fine in my front pocket. I've read that other people use the med bi-fold as a front pocket wallet as well but I think that would be stretching it for me. I'm very pleased with the small size, it holds all I need. The chestnut color on my wallet is not a perfect match to the color of my "Front Pocket Backpack-Chestnut” and my "Old Bull Belt 1 3/4-Chestnut" my wallet's color is lighter. But I do like the color. The inside where the bills go in, one side has liner and the other does not. The side without liner is rough and has loose leather strands/fibers. I'm not sure if it will smooth out with time. The wallet has a solid and stiff feel to it which I like, because I know I will be breaking it in with use. The smell of my wallet is nice but not as nice as my backpack's, they have different leather aromas. I don't know why but all 3 of my leather pieces smell different. Overall I love this wallet and I know it is going to last a very long time...

Small Bifold - Best Wallet I've Ever Bought

by

I bought this wallet because I was tired of paying $30 every few years for a wallet that had good leather but fabric lining that would always tear.







Best $50 I've ever spent. (Well... except for the time I went to Vegas and turned $50 into a lot more.) First, the design is fantastic. There's no better way to keep your cards safe than having their pockets face the bend of the wallet. Second, this thick and durable. When it was brand spankin new, it was difficult to shove bills into the crease, but after a year and a half, it's more pliable, and I've been able to stuff thirty bills into it.







What you should know:







1) It starts off stiff, so anticipate carrying fewer bills until you break it in.







2) It will slowly bend your credit cards. They'll still work, but if you plan on using them as coasters once they've expired, the coasters won't be flat.







3) The card pockets will stretch. I don't think this makes much of a difference since the cards have no way of escaping your wallet unless if you decide to hold the wallet opened and shake it.















Oh, and I got it for my brother in law in black (mine is chestnut) and he loves his. Hell yes I'd recommend this product.







Small bifold - DCB

by

I ordered this wallet along with an ID wallet (Carbon), a tote and wallet for the GF, and the list is continuing! I carry a wallet in my front pocket due to back issues and needed something that would not look too bulky considering I stack my smartphone below it in my left front pants pocket (my keys, chapstick and change in the other). I wavered between this and the Medium bifold and pulled the trigger on this one. It is the perfect choice and not too bulky, even when combined with my phone in my jeans or Dickies pockets. This wallet is extremely well made. It has heft and impeccable build quality, yet is not too stiff and won't require a painful break-in. I hold three cards in each side along with paper medical & dental cards, 2 car registrations and 2 insurance cards. There is room for more cards. As is, the wallet closes flat when sitting on my nightstand (without break-in) and the cards on both sides don't even come in contact with each other when closed (I know some people have had concerns with card breakage in other older designs). I don't see how this can possibly be an issue with this wallet.







DCB wasn't my first choice in colors but Tobacco wasn't available at the time. This is a nice rich color (very dark). I do prefer colors that stand out a bit more and have ordered the Small Bifold in Tobacco. I will not kick my DCB wallet to the curb and will likely switch between the two, along with my ID Wallet in Carbon. I like having a variety to chose from and tend to collect nice things such as these. One thing I know for sure is that all of my Saddleback products will outlast me!

Small Bifold is Perfect

by

The small bifold is perfect, I think. Sturdy but nice and slim. It's breaking in nicely and is about 7/16 of an inch thick with 7 cards in it (no cash). It's starting to taper down really nicely on the sides and is very comfortable in my back pocket. It looks to me like the inside and card slot leather is thinner than older photos that I've seen online which is an upgrade as far as I'm concerned, as long as it hold up just as well. Based on what I've seen so far I'm not worried at all! Thanks Saddleback!

Small Bifold Wallet

by

As soon as I opened the package I saw the small (and relatively thin) bifold wallet. The leather was beautiful and the "build" is solid and it feels every bit as durable as promised. I only have 6 cards (3 on each side) and they fit perfectly. It feels nice in the pocket (back pocket for me) and is small enough that I could use in the front if I needed to. I am extremely happy with my purchase and look forward to buying more Saddleback Leather products.
