Slim Passport Wallet
Passport Wallet, Black Drawstring Backpack (6 of 10), Black Tank (1 of 10), Folios.
I have a craftswoman who laser engraves wood-working projects I make, so I had her laser engrave the Wallets, with each person's name. For my own, I added my firm logo. See photo.
I checked out ability to put multiple passports in the Wallet. Four for our son-in-law's would be snug but doable. Two would definitely fit. I like the pockets for the Passport Card, credit cards, etc.; larger pocket behind those; and the large back pocket to hold larger paper such as currency, etc. The Wallet is larger than my normal billfold, which I usually put in my back pants pocket, so, I'm figuring out my best use for daily needs not involving carrying a passport. It would fit great in a suit coat or jacket pocket, or in my Tank. My wife prefers paper boarding pass versus iPhone pass. So the backside pocket will be great for her to slip her paper pass into - for when we get to fly to visit grand-daughters again. I previously gave her a Black Drawstring Leather Backpack (6 of 10) for her use as an airline carry-on bag and book bag as she teaches at the local university. The passport Wallet will function nicely with her carry-on Drawstring. I previously snagged 1 of 10 Black Tank for myself. I use it daily for my office brief bag. And also as my airline carry-on. My new Passport Wallet will also function nicely in conjunction with my Tank. BTW - I have a nice travel mug (Klean Kanteen) which fits perfectly in the outside pocket of the Tank - and goes through security fine with the lid off, to be refilled past security. As a daily brief bag the Tank works super. I sling it over my right shoulder on a daily carry. When going distances, like in an airline terminal trek, I use both straps and wear like a backpack. It holds my folio in the back sleeve, my MacBook Pro in the front pocket, charger cords etc in one outside pocket, my mug in the other. And much space for files.
If you purchase a Saddleback product and are interested in laser engraving, contact me and provide your contact info.
Further Cudos to Saddleback - I have purchased a number of folios and given them as corporate gifts to friends / clients, both the large and medium. Saddleback has provided consistent quality, and functionality. The recipients universally appreciated the gift and the quality of the gift. I looked for a number of years for a corporate gift for special clients, and found a high percentage of cheap quality product on the market. When I found Saddleback I knew I had found the product I wanted to put my logo on. Of course, it doesn't come cheap and I need to be judicious about how many I purchase. But, the recipients know and appreciate they are in select company with the gift. Mark Hanson - Des Moines, IA
My favorite SBL wallet hands down.
I carry my wallet in my front pocket of my jeans and while it’s a tight fit, I have no problem with the slim passport wallet fitting. I have just enough space for my credit cards / ID cards, and I use the front pocket, where the picture shows the passport, for keeping my receipts for work. The middle pocket for cash let’s me put bills in without having to fold them over. I also use the back flap pocket to slide the SBL bear trap coin purse into to keep a small amount of change.
The tobacco color is amazing and it arrives so soft and molds to your use quickly.
Perfect for my new passport.
This is a wonderful way to keep your passports together, along with some cards and cash. The slim leather passport wallet can securely hold two passports, credit cards, boarding passes, vaccine cards, cash, receipts, and other travel documents. This is the best gift for the world traveler or anyone who wants to keep documents organized and together.
It is even great for a family traveling together and wanting to keep all of their important documents together. But don't be caught in a foreign country and trusting little Johnny to keep up with his documents.
Why you should use a Passport Holder such as a Passport Wallet
A leather passport holder, such as our Slim Passport Wallet, is a great way to keep all of your important documents organized and together while you travel. If you have your regular wallet, plus a boarding pass, plus a vaccination card that may or may not fit in your regular leather wallet, you have a lot to remember. With a passport holder, you can organize everything in one place.
Plus, it just looks nicer. Many people think a passport holder is only for people who travel a lot, but that's not true. If you are carrying your passport with you, why not do it in class? Plus, when you pull your boarding pass out of this, you will surely get bumped up to first class.
Materials in the Full Grain Leather Passport Wallet
When you trust something as important as a passport holder, you do not want the maker to go cheap. You can go to the mall all day and get a cheap personalized passport cover, but it is just that, cheap passport covers. We design this to keep your belongings safe in other countries. With a passport pocket, internal card slots, and RFID blocking technology, you can get to your hotel safe and sound with your travel documents and cash. We do this with everything we make, so it makes sense that we would make something so important.
This leather passport wallet was constructed with full-grain leather. All leather has grain, tough fibers, and pores in the top part of the hide. Most companies pay less for the leather that has had a lot of the grain shaved off to get rid of scars and blemishes of the leather, but in doing so, they shave off the grain, which is the toughest part of the hide and what makes a leather passport wallet so durable, get a nice patina and be super water-resistant. It's like the shaved off the shingles from your roof. When they remove some of the grain, it's called top grain leather. When they remove ALL of the grain, it's called genuine leather. And they do it to save leather while taking away the strength of the wallet and durability of the leather. Leather is expensive, and they don't want to waste any of it because of a scar or bug bite. It's why this full grain leather passport wallet is more expensive than some cheap passport case.
The Lining of our Passport Wallet-
We line this leather passport wallet with pigskin, which is tougher than the cow leather. It's why we feel comfortable offering a 100-year Warranty.
Thread for a strong passport wallet-
We sewed it with our really strong German marine-grade polyester thread. It's the only thread they sew parachutes and ship sails with. So if your life depends on it, use Polyester thread.
Passport Wallet with RFID Blocker-
And for extra security, we put a thin layer of RFID (Radio Frequency ID) blocking material between the pigs and the cow. This is to stop low life scumbag thieves from scanning your leather passport wallet in a crowd and stealing your identification from the cards in your passport wallet. The RFID chip on the front of the passport itself is harder to scan because it's a different frequency. So keep your data safe with this RFID blocking technology; these are travel essentials.
Passport Wallet Design
The reason customs agents and cashiers will compliment you on your leather passport wallet is that the full-grain leather ages so nicely. I designed it to stay slim and flat when it's stuffed full by putting only two even credit card pockets to stack your cards, business cards on one side and personal cards on the other. Because you stack them, there aren't layers of leather adding thickness between each card. And it stays flat in the two interior pockets. The size is wide enough to fit a couple of passports comfortably, and yellow cards or uncomfortably fit four passports, but only two securely. It seems simple, but it is a very well thought out leather passport wallet.

More than a Leather Passport Holder
You are taking a trip out of the country, you might even do this all the time, but most people don't. Either way, you have the best travel gear, luggage, bag, money, passports, boarding pass, and other important documents. You review your flight, hotel, and everything you can to make your next trip the best it can be. You do not want to trust that the trip will not get ruined by a low-quality passport case with a snap closure that just broke and dumped your documents. It will not happen at a convenient place, and you show up at your hotel with nothing. Our passport wallet is exactly what you need for quality and extra security. Oh, and it smells great and will always work correctly, for at least 100 years anyway.
