    So I just got my first Saddleback Leather wallet, and I have to say I'm honestly stoked about having this wallet. It has to be the best quality and workmanship I've seen on such a simple design. I can't wait till it stretches to accomadate everything I carry in my wallet comfortablely.

    I'm almost tempted to throw more cash their way for one of their old bull belts.

    I have a medium Bi-fold. Got it for Christmas. What an awesome wallet. Have been using it since then and am still breaking it in. I can only imagine the quality of their other items.

    Yes MR24927, you are correct. And on that note, I should mention that if you do not like a thick wallet you should steer clear of this model. The wallets I have carried in the past have been thick as well, so it is not a burden to me. I do have several wallets I switch out depending on what I am wearing. I don't like to carry a thick wallet when I am in shorts, so I tend to carry something minimal for a few cards and some money.

    It is a bit thick, but I honestly don't mind it, because the leather is tough as nails. I've had other similar "slim" wallets and they started fraying and having loose threads within a few months

    I switched from a Fossil wallet that was falling apart after a year, to a Saddleback bifold. Oh my lord was it worth it.

    The prices are right, the craftsmanship is superb. Communication? They got that too. I need to get an updated pic of my Saddleback on here. It's gotten much nicer with age, that's for sure. Before, I would only carry my wallet FR. It's thin enough to go BR pocket now.

    I have owned one of the bifolds for about a month now and it is breaking in nicely. I don't completely understand the complaints about it being too thick, it seems about standard to be.

    Just measured mine and it comes in at about 1cm.

    I'm a minimalist. I have two RFID sleeves that contain my Drivers License, Concealed Carry License, Dental/Vision/Health Insurance Cards, Pic of the lady, Gym membership, Bankcard and apparently a ticket stub to The Hunger Games.

    *Edit* It also appears you get to see the very first scar I received from improperly handling a knife! Nowerdays, a blade with a very dependable lock is important to me >.>

    I was just sitting in an airport pondering the ridiculous thickness of my Saddleback wallet. I love it though-- I dish out some serious abuse, and it takes it!

    Ha, I wish that was all cash! It's just a fat passport (extra pages).

    I've had this for well over a year. It's called the 'Wallet Sleeve' on the site but I believe it may have had another name. No logo on it like the one they currently show on their website.

    Generally, four cards in there (with an occasional bill or two). But, I've had at least that plus a hotel room key card, some cash, boarding pass, and receipts.

    One of their belts is next on my list.

    I support everything Saddleback does. . They are a fantastic company with a compassionate mindset and great products behind their name. I own the card holder, narrow wallet, tow belt, and the i.d. wallet. The i.dwallet is what I carry now, the chestnut color. I love it. I'm lusting after the large bi fold and the old bull belt, love these quality products priced right.

    I'm lusting for the old bull belt myself, but I can't find myself justifing the price tag for a belt that may or may not fit me in a few months (my weight really flucuates).
