    godcode,

    Thanks for the update. I just received a bright orange Jimi Wallet in the mail over the weekend and will give it a shot. However, in close inspection, the hinges do look a bit fragile.

    With Aloha,

    Clarence

    My jimi wallet is still holding up quite well after 2 years or so of daily carry in rear right pocket.

    After overstuffing it and then sitting on it, the tip of the clip on the money clip broke off, but since it was only the tip, the clip still works and holds bills/cards just fine. Hinges are intact.

    Yup, thats the weakest part of the Jimi :(. That's why I don't put mine on my back pocket and won't stuff it full of cash (only place 3 folded cash in mine). I'm hoping the Jimi maker would release a stainless steel Jimi but with an outer money clip just like the Jimix. Then this may be my ultimate wallet :roof:...

    Great wallet. I've carried a Dopp Regatta 88 for going on four years. Even though it shows no signs of wearing out, I recently ordered two more just in case it gets discontinued. Highly recommended. Currently on sale at eBags, too. Buy one to encourage Dopp to keep them in circulation.

    I learned about this wallet listening to Clark Howard's radio show and I ordered one. Its really tiny and thin yet holds quite a lot. Its made of thin nylon Spinnaker sail material. It is the ALL-ETT Billlfold. Check out the website www.ALL-ETT.com

    Anyone have this wallet?

    I'm talking about the one called "European leather" I don't think I've seen a bi-fold leather wallet with those small of dimensions with a full size money slot.

    Any thoughts on this one guys?

    I've been using the Wagner Swiss Wallet for over a year now and have found it to be the best solution for my tastes and needs so far. I've a drawer full of wallets and money clips, but thus far this one has addressed my wants/needs. It is very well made and I have found it to be very durable.

    It comes in several colors and I also highly recommend the web-retailer at this link: Knifeworks - Wagner Swiss Wallet

    I have used these Marsupials as well, and love them. Another recent Chisco design is the Board Short Wallet, which I like even better. It has an ID window, two zipper pouches and the same keychain attachment with an open pouch. Very nice...it is in my pocket right now!

    How easy is it to get cards out of these small zippered wallets? Do they hang up or are they pretty easy?

    Very easy...the zipper pockets are slightly larger than the cards.

    I went through 2 All-etts European wallets in 2 months, both tore in the corner where the cards are inserted. I must say though, wonderful Customer service. The replacement was sent out immediately, then when it tore again I was imediately issued a refund. So overall I would give them another shot if they came out a more reinforced version, because hands down was the slimmest, most comfortable wallet I've carried.

    After seeing all the Urban Wallets around here, I made the decision to get one. But then I stopped and remembered that I had a SOB Organizer that might accomplish almost the same thing. So I tried it out and it seems to be working pretty good. Inside I have my iPod Touch 2G w/ ear buds, wallet with 3 cards (DL, Visa, medical card), bandanna, & Chap Stick. In the outer mesh I have my Zebra F-301 Compact, and my SAK Spartan. I can fit my Emerson SOCFK in the mesh as well, but I feel better having it clipped to my pocket. And as an added bonus, I have enough room to clip my Surefire 6P in the same pocket as the organizer.

    I have a leather "Mission Wallet" that I've had for several years. Super strong and no problems.

    I have the 4 dollar Wal Mart credit card holder too which I use to store cards that I don't normally keep in my wallet. I was thinking of using it as a everyday wallet too but thought it was too thick as well. I'm gonna remove the snaps too and do velcro. I never thought of that!

    What are the dimensions on it?

    I love fossil but haven't seen that anywhere where fossils are sold.

    Thanks for posting because that seems like the perfect wallet for me! I hope.....

    I just measured against an online ruler and its 9.5cm long by 7cm high. This is when it is folded. Hope this helps.
