Slim Leather Card Wallet

Product Overview

I can carry any leather wallet I want, for free because I own hundreds of wallets because I own the company. And of all of the wallets that I have ever designed, I think this one is my very favorite. I use all of the wallets to test them out, but when I designed this one, I put my old faithful Front Pocket ID leather wallet away and have been using this leather wallet ever since.  

To keep it as flat as possible, I designed it with the top and side unsewn so cash folds and then slides in easily. It is also easy to open up and choose the bills you want without pulling out the entire stack of bills. Then along the bottom, I left the wallet mostly unsewn so the cash can sink down past where the stitching would normally be and a little further to the bottom edge. But with just enough stitching so the cash can’t fall out of the bottom. It took a long time to design it just right like that. And everybody loves this leather wallet. 

Each card slot holds 4 or 5 cards when you add them as the leather stretches. Give it a coupile of days to stretch out enough to hold that many cards and you’ll thank me. There is a single card slot on each side. 

I also designed it with a Radio Frequency ID blocking material between the lining and the leather to stop thieves from scanning the wallet in your pocket and stealing your identity.  


Leather - The reason bank tellers will compliment you on your leather wallet is because it’s built of nothing less than full grain leather so it ages way more richly. Full grain does that because it still has all of the pores on it. Lesser leather wallet companies remove the pores and grain and therefore the oil and dirt don’t sink in as nicely and the sun doesn’t tan the leather. 

It’s important to know the difference between full grain and top grain or genuine or split leather wallet. A hide of leather is like a roof. A roof is thick, but it is the top layer of shingles that are the strongest and most protective. The tough "shingles" of leather is the thin layer of grain on the hide's surface. But low level leather wallet makers shave the top layer off to get rid of icky scars so they don't have to cut them out and throw that expensive and precious leather away. Forget giving people something that will last for years and years. It’s just pure shortsighted business. But in doing so, they're shaving the shingles off of your house. How terrible is that? They neuter the leather and take away its leatherhood, the tough quality that leather is known for. We only use leather that has the FULL amount of the grain (full grain). When they remove some of the grain, it's called top grain leather. When they sand or split ALL of the grain off, they call it genuine or split leather. A full grain leather wallet isn’t common and it isn’t the cheapest option either.

Lining - Instead of using a thin shiny pretty nylon fabric, we lined the leather wallet with pigskin, which is tougher than the cow skin. By adding both of them together, we can confidently offer a 100-year Warranty.

Thread - And then we sewed this leather wallet with a great German marine-grade polyester continuous filament thread. It's as strong and resistant of a thread as there is. It's actually what they sail ship sails and parachutes with. For if your life depends on it, you’ll want it to depend on ours. It’s more expensive to sew a leather wallet with this over the common nylon thread, but your wallet will last way longer. Seems like the right thing to do.

    2.5 years Going Strong

    I love this wallet. It is perfect for my minimalist needs.

    I would like to see it offered with a small AirTag pocket on one side.

    Literally the best wallet ever

    I've only had this wallet for a week, but I absolutely love it! It's the perfect size for some $20s and several credit cards - all I need these days. I started off with the Slim Bifold Leather Wallet by Saddleback, but it was just too bulky for my needs. So, I gave it to my wife. But, this one I can carry in a front pocket or back pocket without even noticing it is there, Plus, with the quality of this leather, it is going to last me a very, very long time! Well done, Saddleback!

    Great middle ground

    I've been enjoying my slim card wallet for a week or so now, and It meets all of my needs. Every day cards and subway pass will fit just fine with an assortment of bills just fine. A great alternative to the front pocket ID if RFID protection is a concern.

    Highly recommend!

    2nd wallet from Saddleback, love it!

    I carried their bi-fold wallet for years. It was incredible quality and aged so well, but I came back looking for something a bit smaller. This wallet is perfect. Not only does it carry the Saddleback name (so you know the overall quality) but the functionality it spot on. I carry 10 cards and occasionally some cash in the middle. It’s so much less invasive in my pocket. Dare I say I like this wallet more than my truck? Hmm. Yeah. I’ve been using it for a year now and it really is that good. Sorry, truck.
