A dud
Sampled

This one was a dud for me. The product I received didn't have the leather embellishment, it was just two pieces of felt sewn together. Product is quite bulky, which to me defeats the purpose of carrying a card case instead of a wallet.

What is this??
Sampled

This is such a tacky and cheap looking sorry excuse for a card case I don't even know what to do with it. I'd throw it away but it seems to have been made by children at an arts and crafts fair and I don't want to make any children cry by throwing it away.

Minimally Minimalistic
Sampled

I appreciate most of the unique gadgets and such that come in my Birchbox, but this product was a miss. For something so simple, this wallet is too bulky. It was also not what is pictured, nor is this version even sold by Old Calgary from what I can tell.

not impressed
Sampled

I wasn't really impressed with this wallet, looked very crafty as if my 10 year old nephew made it. a bit clunky as well if the whole point is to minimize what you carry, still have to put cards in it.

Wrong Wallet
Sampled

I got a totally different wallet from the one my birchbox account said I did... The wallet they want me to review is the Alpha wallet, which looks interesting. That's not the wallet I got. The wallet I got is boring. It is two pieces of felt stitched together to make a vertical wallet. No leather. Not the horizontal design of the Alpha wallet.

Can't do much with that.
Sampled

Maybe it was just the sample that they sent but it fit like 3-4 cards and definitely no cash. There maybe some one out there who this is for but I try to keep everything cash so it just doesn't work for me...

Thick With Minimal Usefulness
Sampled

Unfortunately the wallet I received was slightly different than the one in the picture and did not have the card holder on the side. I was disappointed with the thickness of the actual wallet in comparison with the limited holding capacity that it contained.

Kind of Bulky
Sampled

Definitely a distinct look, but is bulky. I always look for a sleek wallet that won't have a heavy profile in my pocket. For that reason I don't think i'd use this product.

Looks cheap
Sampled

I was not impressed with this sample at all. Not only was the sample nothing close to the wallet on the website, but I got a similar card case from Roosevelt Supply a few boxes ago that was a higher quality and looks a lot better. This is not slim and looks like a ten year old made it.
