Served me well for years, though I've zipper troubles like many
June 18, 2018
I really love the design on this wallet! I live in Japan, so I carry a lot of coins and convenience store point cards, and this couldn't be a more perfect coin wallet! I can keep high-value coins (?100 and ?500) on one side and low-value coins (?1–50) on the other, and have easy access to the cards I'd need for purchases less than ?1,000. The outside pocket is perfect for holding my transit IC card, too, so I can just pull my wallet out and smush it up against the reader when I use the train or the bus.
My only issue that I've had in the several years I've owned it is that the zipper on the small pocket has broken (like, the metal on the "ring" at the end of the pull tab broke, leaving the pull tab with two pointy "horns"), and once or twice the entire pull tab fell out of the main zipper (which I was luckily able to find and pop back in, and then used some pliers to close it shut), but on the whole, I couldn't be happier with this wallet.

ProsAbsolutely ideal for coins and commonly used cards! The outside pocket is also good for holding IC cards and/or, say, ibuprofen in foil-backed blister packaging.
ConsI've had some zipper issues, but it's also entirely possible that they were my own fault, or at least unavoidable just from the pocket insertion/removal process.
