Best Wallet (or Hybrid Leather Chew Toy) That I Have Owned
January 5, 2020
I'm on my 2nd Leather Hybrid Bi-Fold. My first wallet survived 5 years of daily use along with multiple trips to Europe and the Caribbean, and one accidental trip through the washer. It was still in great shape and would probably have lasted another 5 years if it had not run into a determined Dachshund just before Christmas. A bulky standard wallet is especially uncomfortable for guys like me (a fastback model human built with no butt) to sit on and I didn't think twice about immediately ordering a replacement - and picking up a Mini-Skinny Cardholder as well. Merry Christmas to me!
ProsIt does exactly what it claims to do: it's slim with enough space for all of the cards, charge or otherwise, that the average adult carries in their wallet. I have multiple cards in most pockets and they are easy to remove once the wallet is broken in a bit. The current model has a divided bill compartment which my original model lacked and is a nice-to-have for separating foreign from domestic currency. Because of its size the wallet fits comfortably into front pants pockets for those situations where a little extra security is a good idea.
ConsI cannot think of anything negative or that I would change. I even like the Big Skinny logo on the wallet which some people apparently do not. Honestly, how many things do you own with which you are so happy that if required you would immediately replace them with the exact same model?
