Sad product for the price

This product is not very functional and way over priced...

Not that great
Sampled

I wasn't the biggest fan of this product. It only had the one pocket for cards and it shed wool fibers everywhere. I was pretty disappointed.

Interesting Idea
Sampled

It's a bit too bulky for me. I might keep it to give as a gift to a hipper friend than me.

Makes a statement

Clearly created for Grizzly Adams. Too wide & bulky for my needs, and too rustic-looking for my taste.

Thick felt does not a wallet make.
Sampled

I was really expecting a stand-out product for December's birchbox - it's the holiday season after all! The Old Calgary wallet was less than exciting and not something i'd buy or gift to anyone else.

A thick felt, this card-holder/wallet was less than sturdy, not really resistant to wear/tear and generally, underwhelming, even in design. I'd look for a better product for holiday gifting.

Not the Sample Given
Sampled

Got this as a sample? The one received had no leather to it which looks more refined. The one received looks like 2 grey pieces of thick wool felt stitched together. I have a feeling that maybe Old Calgary just put together an exclusive BirchBox exclusive as a sample, but had no intentions of actually selling them. I would have considered using the Alpha version but not this one. In comparing itself to other vertical card holders, the one I received in a previous BirchBox by Roosevelt looked much better. That being said, I will still use my leather slim wallet with a money clip over both of them since it offers more versatility and better looks.

Not for me
Sampled

The one pictured on the website looks a little better than the one I got, with that leather pocket. The all grey wool looks a little plain and unsophisticated. I don't like using wallets that only have one pocket. If I'm going to carry just a few cards and some spare cash than I'll use a money clip, which looks a little nicer. If I need to carry more than the money clip can hold than I have a wallet so this item doesn't really serve a purpose for me. I am using it to carry business cards but other than that I wouldn't use this as my primary wallet.

Thick and porous material
Sampled

First of all, my sample wallet was just a card case with no leather on it. And for being only a card case, it is quite thick and not at all slim like a card case should be. Also, the material is thick wool felt, which is porous and will absorb any liquids and odors.
