      "... Saddleback Leather no longer discriminates against any cow on the basis of age, appearance, lactose intolerance... if the beast has a natural marking or brand, or whether or not they worship the Divine Bovine."

      Truth is, sometimes beauty is only skin deep... like with cows. Their poetry is notoriously terrible, but man, their hides are nature's art. We don't believe that flawlessness equals beauty. Beauty is when we're able to see something as it really is.

      This is true with humans too. There are lots of quality people who are really beautiful not in spite of, but because of the marks life has given them.

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

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

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

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

      Best 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!

      Grown-up wallet

      by |
      I bought this after having a Tyvek paper wallet for years that I liked. I've had numerous others and hated most of them. The paper wallet was weird and held my stuff for 5 years. It finally died and I didn't want to compromise anymore. I have lusted after Saddleback leather for years but always hesitated due to price.

      I pulled the trigger a month ago. It's everything I hoped. This wallet is very slim, soft, and holds cash, and 4-6 cards no problem. I refuse to use anything but a bifold wallet, and I'll be buried with this one. It's the perfect wallet. The details, texture, and feel are fantastic.

      This further solidified my resolve to save up for the thin briefcase.

      Two weeks and it's lookin' good!

      by |
      I got the small sized wallet because I had a front pocket wallet for so long I didn't know if I would like a wallet in my back pocket. Initially I was concerned about how thick it would be but it has been two and a half weeks and I barely notice it. The only thing "bad" per se is how stiff it was and still is. It is getting much better with use but you have to stuff the bills to get them in there at first. Now this really isn't a bad thing since the company tells you right off the bat they don't tenderize the leather. You have to break it in and that's pretty cool. I have no doubt mine will last 100+ years.

      Small bifold wallet

      by |
      I received my small bifold a few day ago. My medium size wallet was stolen which contained everything. I felt stupid and targeted. I got a police case number and made phone calls and online notifications to protect my identity. Saddleback is an awesome company with excellent leather product and outstanding customer service. The small bifold is perfect as I now carry the wallet in the front pocket.

      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...

      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!

      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.

      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!

      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 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.

      Great Wallet

      by - verified purchaser |
      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.

      What smell?

      by |
      Products:

      Small Bifold in DCB

      Medium Macbook Pro sleeve in DCB



      Pros:

      Look great

      Feel great

      Work great



      Cons:

      These pieces smell nothing like leather to my nose. It's more of a vinyl/plastic synthetic scent, and it's pretty intense at first. I guess it's the die (could be a DCB thing). If someone put a blindfold on my eyes and one of these pieces under my nose, I would not guess that they were leather. The smell fades quickly with use, so it's not a showstopper.



      On the flip side, nobody else seems to have made this observation so it could be that I am crazy or do not know what actual leather is supposed to smell like ;)

      Well Done

      by |
      Hey everyone,

      Waited a long time for these wallets to come, there were some shipping mixups but finally got them to Dubai.

      These wallets are amazing. Well built, simple design. They will serve the purpose and more.

      Ordered one in coffee brown, one in chestnut. The coffee brown has a smoother finish with a shine to it, and the chestnut has a slightly weathered feel. The coffee came with less blemishes and natural marks than the chestnut.

      Slimmer than I expected, which is good. The small bi-folds are the perfect size if you are into traveling light.

      All in all, a great job by SBL and would not only love to buy more products but would also order another set of these wallets.

      Keep in mind that this is sensitive leather to markings and scratches unless you keep a leather milk set around.

      Well done SBL and will put up a full video review on YouTube soon.

      Thanks !!
      Ray

      True Quality

      by |
      I just bought the Small Tobacco Bifold and I couldn't be more pleased. I've used Saddleback before and have been meaning to buy a wallet for a couple of years and finally pulled the trigger. Let me just say thanks to Dave and the rest of the Saddleback team for their attention to quality and detail. This wallet I'm holding in my hand is top notch leather with excellent thickness and stitching. It's breaking in nicely after only three days and is already aging beautifully like a fine wine. To anyone who may read this review to aid his or her decision, my advice is go for it. This product is absolutely worth the money. I'll be a customer for life! - Ethan

      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 - 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.

      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.

      Org. Leather

      - Classic briefcase (Chestnut)

      - Passport Wallet (Black)

      - Small Bi-fold Wallet (Tobacco)

      - Medium Bi-fold Wallet (Dark Brown)

      - Large Bi-fold (Chestnut)

      - Tow Belt (Black)

      - Accessory Totes (Chestnut & Tobacco)

      - iPhone 5 case (Black)



      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.

      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.

      Don’t think twice, just buy it.

      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.

      Best Wallet EVER!

      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 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.

      Absolutely Love It

      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.
