PROS: I finally went searching for my first real adult wallet. (My last 2 were about 6 dollars, no joke...) I am a mommy of 2 young kids so right now I carry a diaper bag, not a purse. I needed a wallet that could hold all of the essentials (in a very organized layout, for no more digging) for when I don't want to lug that diaper bag around with me. I read a ton of reviews on several wallets and the choice ended up being among this wallet, the Hobo Nancy, and the JuJuBe Be Major. Ultimately, I chose this one for the style since they were all about the same price and functionality but this one looks less like another mommy product than the JuJuBe and seemed bigger than the Nancy. It does everything I wanted (with the exception of being a wristlet - which the other two are)
It is small enough to still be considered a wallet, and fits perfectly in my Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack diaper bag, in the side pocket where I like to keep all of my things (wallet, keys, phone) accessible - now they are in one place instead of stuffed in individually and ready to fall out. It holds several membership cards, credit and debit cards, gift cards, IDs and has places for coupons and receipts and change, The zippered pocket holds anything you want to be discreet or more secure (I have the kids' shot records and our insurance cards in there) Of course my iPhone fits very nicely in there, although I did take it out of the enormous OtterBox Defender case. It did fit while in the case, but when I put that and my massive keys in the two side pockets it was too much and the center magnet couldn't close. The magnet is surprisingly strong! I was very happy to find this because I was worried to put my ID and debit card in the open center, but they are very secure in there. Finally, there is something to be said for a well crafted and constructed item. This is a beautiful wallet that seems like it will last me a lifetime. The leather is gorgeous and supple and the hardware is durable. It is a quality item. I got the Ginger color and I love it! I am a purple fanatic, but I decided on this wonderful Ginger so that it would go with everything. The color is perfect, I was worried that it would be too orange from some of the pictures I've seen on the internet but it is true to the color seen on Amazon. Overall this was a great purchase! I cringed at the price tag, since I had never spent even a tenth of that price on a wallet before, but it is WELL worth the investment!
