Stolen and bought again after 5 years
September 8, 2017
I bought this wallet 5 years ago, and then it was stolen. I went back and bought the exact same one again, because I was just 100% happy with it. It really is thin, but that doesn't diminish the durability! After 5 years of constant use, there were no defects and the wallet still looked 'like new' inside and out. Of course the new one was totally crisp whereas the old leather had gotten softer with use, but I liked the way it looked and that's the way it was supposed to be. I carry plenty of cards, sometimes wondering if I'm abusing the wallet if I have 4 cards in each pocket. But apparently it holds up fine!
For this specific wallet, the relatively high shape makes it easy to store (euro) notes and receipts and whatever else you may need to carry (printed A4 sheets if folded a few times) without crumpling the end that would otherwise stick out. What I like most about this one is that the height gives you 4 positions for an RFID card: left or right and top/back or bottom/front. When you have a number of RFID cards, sometimes they interfere if you stack them and the system won't recognize the card. By putting them further apart, this is solved. I can keep all those cards in this wallet and just tap the appropriate side of the wallet to the reader. If you have more than 4 RFID cards all from picky systems, and you don't want to take them out, then I suggest getting a version of the wallet that folds 3x or something, to give you 5 or 6 separate positions for them.
ProsExpect it to last at the very least 10 years. I don't see it failing at all.
Very nice materials.
Carries multiple RFID cards well enough apart.
Compact and very thin.
Looks totally classy.
Works perfectly with euro notes.
Ships to NL in less than a week!
ConsIf you have over 4 picky RFID cards then you might have to take them out to read them until RFID systems become more robust.
