Ridiculous

The one I got did not have the leather pocket on the outside as is shown here and the item was really just ridiculous. Yet another Birchbox item to just throw away.

A giveaway

Mine didn't have the leather piece. It is thick and bulky. Looks like a preschooler thought it up and made it in less than five minutes. I would never carry something like this as my colleagues would openly laugh (and rightly so).

Not my favorite

I like the idea of the slim wallet, but I can't see myself using this very often as the pocket can't really hold many cards or cash.

Gave it away

Really didn't look too appealing when i opened it. It's actually too bulky for something that's supposed to be "less"

Lame

Not useful. Seems like 2 peices of felt stitched together. Not functional. Not even sure more than one dollar or a card would fit.

Weak
Sampled

I was excited to try a new type of wallet. I have been a traditional tri-fold wallet guy forever. However, this is a weak attempt at a wallet. Needs at least a money clip on the outside. No use for this.

Worst wallet I've ever seen
Sampled

Take two pieces of VERY thick felt and sew them together with a single opening and you have the old Calgary wallet. It is extremely cheap looking, although the stitching looks strong. The worst part about this product, which was a deal breaker for me, is that it is fatter empty than my current wallet is with 6 cards in it.

What is this?
Sampled

The picture of the wallet is completely different than what I received. I received two pieces of wool stitched together. Not the leather/wool combo with multiple pockets. Also, I received an identical product of leather from Roosevelt Supply a few months ago. Don't understand why I received. I was initially very excited to receive the actual product because it seems very unique, but what I actually received was useless.

I don't think I'll be using this. I like bi-fold wallets. The material doesn't seem very high quality and isn't the same as what you see on the website. So, nope. Not for me.

What everyone else said...

What is pictured is not what I received. It is just two pieces of felt sewed together...I would never pull this preschool looking thing out of my pocket in public and call it a card wallet. Besides the fact I’ve already received a card wallet from Birchbox, that was much much better.
