I bought this to replace a 5+ year old, inexpensive, all leather tri-fold I had bought at an airport luggage store. My old wallet was losing a bit of the stitching and had a bit of wear. It seemed time for a new one. This wallet seemed almost identical in style - number of pockets, size, etc.
I thought with only the outside being leather, it might be a bit thinner and lighter. It was neither. On a digital scale, the two wallets are identical. I don't have a caliper, but with a good ruler they seem to have the same thickness.
The old wallet feels richer/classier, being all leather on the inside (except the lining of the bill section). I am ok with this new wallet for now. I'll see how well it stands up over time.
As to the shipping, it came via Fedex SmartPost.for $3.45. It took 11 days from when Fedex recorded picking it up. I guess that technically meets the "5-10 business days" stated on the website. I wasn't in a hurry and didn't need it faster, so I am not saying the website was in any way misleading. However, it seems like the seller could offer flat rate Priority mail for ltwo buck more and have 2 day shipping. Instead, they offer fedex 2-3 day, at $8 for just a 3.5 oz wallet.
Merchant Response:Hi RandyB, Thank you for your review! We are looking into switching from FedEx Smartpost to regular USPS First Class. Our shipments should be faster after that! Have a wonderful weekend, BigSkinny
