High Card Capacity

While 10 cards might be a lot for some people, for others it can be 15, 20, or more. So what exactly do we mean when we say the Popov Leather Long Wallet can hold “lots” of cards?

Most experts agree that high-capacity wallets have a dedicated location for fifteen or more cards. You should be able to store all your credit cards, debit cards, membership cards, and more without stretching out your leather or putting so much bulk in your pocket that you get wallet lines in your jeans. 

That’s exactly what you get with the Popov Leather Long Wallet, which comfortably houses up to sixteen cards at any given time.

"My husband asked for this wallet as a gift a couple years ago. He LOVED it...It has room for everything he carries and holds it securely, doing it all with a great look! 10/10 would recommend."

Haven for Organization Lovers

Picture standing in line at a busy drugstore, ready to make a purchase. You reach for your wallet to get your credit card, but find yourself sifting through a stack of cards as thick as your thumb. Is your card nestled within the stack, or did you leave it at home?

Or imagine trying to take a trip with your family, only to find yourself frantically searching through your bags and pockets for your passport, boarding pass, driver’s license, and other travel essentials.

Having a long wallet eliminates these daily struggles.

A long wallet’s card slots are presented in a tiered or accordion style. This means that the slots are staggered, with some slots overlapping others. This allows you to neatly organize your cards so you can find what you’re looking for when you need it.

Durable long wallets may also include additional features, like checkbook compartments or slip pockets, to provide a designated space for some of the other things you need on a daily basis.

Space for RFID-Blocking Card

With over 15 cards in your Popov Leather Long Wallet, it’s crucial to maintain your digital security and prevent any chances of identity theft. 

Radio frequency identification (RFID), a radio-waves based technology that operates by wirelessly transferring data through electromagnetic fields, has largely helped to facilitate contactless payments.  

However, this new technology can result in potential security risks: 

  • Thieves can potentially scan and retrieve data from your RFID-cards without your consent or knowledge.
  • Sensitive information on things like credit cards can lead to identity theft and data theft.
  • Skilled hackers can clone RFID tags, creating duplicate cards to conduct fraud.

This is why RFID protection is a must-have security feature for any cardholder wallet

It will block any radio and electromagnetic wave from penetrating your wallet and reading your classified data, keeping all your contactless payment cards protected from unauthorized scanning.

Popov Leather provides this needed protection via the Wallet Gauntlet, an RFID-blocking card that’s compatible with the Leather Long Wallet (and any other wallet).

RFID blocking Wallet Gauntlet Usage and Care Tips 

  • Position it correctly. The side with the RFID-technology should face the direction of your RFID-enabled cards.
  • Occasionally check its placement to ensure it remains rightly positioned.
  • Transfer it as needed since it can be used with any wallet, not just the Popov Leather Long Wallet.
  • If you switch between different wallets, consider getting more Wallet Gauntlet cards to provide consistent protection across all your everyday carry wallets.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Long Wallet?

A leather long wallet, also referred to as a tall wallet or vertical wallet, is an elongated and vertically designed wallet that lets you carry currency flat instead of a folded manner.

Why Should You Buy the Popov Leather Long Wallet?

  • Exceptional functionality: It’s a high capacity card wallet thoughtfully designed for those who need to carry up to 16 cards without compromising on card organization and style. 

  • Versatile storage: The two spacious cash pockets give you enough room to neatly stack your unfolded cash, bills, and even your checkbook. 

  • Expert craftsmanship: My experienced artisans meticulously hand-sew each long wallet with the durable and thick Tiger Thread to prevent the stitches from ever unraveling.

  • Lifetime guarantee: Each wallet is backed with a lifetime warranty, so if damage results from a fault in our craftsmanship, simply return it for a free wallet repair or replacement. We’ll cover your shipping costs.

How Do You Make the Popov Leather Long Wallet?

Similar to other Popov Leather wallets, the Long Wallet’s creation entails a meticulous process using only the best available materials and superior craftsmanship. 

We exclusively use USA full-grain leather. Each wallet is then hand-sewn with the thick Tiger Thread

Check out our detailed step-by-step process as we make the Popov Leather Long Wallet from scratch.

What's the Best Type of Leather for a Long Wallet?

Full-grain leather is the best leather choice for a long wallet. It’s derived from the hide’s top layer, which is the strongest and most durable part, making it the highest quality leather grade. As the leather gets exposed to sunlight, air, and daily use, it darkens and forms an attractive leather patina that adds to the wallet’s appeal. 

"Wallet is very well made with quality leather. The dimensions are correct for the holding of standard USA credit cards and US$, not folded currency. I am very happy with the wallet..."
