I was looking to replace my bulky wallets that wouldn't last but a couple years at at time before needing replaced. I ended up purchasing this and do not regret my decision at all. This wallet forced me to dump all the crap that collected in my wallet that I did not need to carry. I currently now carry 6 cards and roughly 4 bills and still have room to spare a card of two if need be. When the wallet first arrived it was a bit tight but after two weeks it loosened up and now the cards fit perfectly. The leather is good quality and has broken in nicely so far. Although I cannot comment on the long term reliability (greater that 1 year), I believe this will hold up very well and I won't ever have to purchase a wallet again. But if the quality does deteriorate, Popov provides a lifetime warranty so that should alleviate any hesitations. 5/5 Recommend purchasing if you are looking to downsize your wallet.
Love the wallet. Exactly what I was hoping for. I got the driftwood color with brown stitching and it looks great. I've included a photo because I had a hard time finding a picture with the brown stitching before. It's thin and I actually use it in my back pocket and you can't tell it's there. Hope this helps someone!
This wallet is exactly what I'd been looking for and it's built like a tank. Well done, Ryan.
Ryan of Popov Leathers was extremely responsive to all of my inquiries and requests. I appreciate the superb customer service! The 5 Card wallet showed up when promised. The first thing I did was the smell test (ala Steve Montelli). Amazingly fragrant and soft to the touch. The design and stitching are solid as a rock. I have been using the wallet for a month now and it has stretched easily to carry 6 cards inside and one more outside along with up all of the cash I need. It carries everything I need daily. One interesting property of the Horween Chromexcel is its ability to scuff and easily be corrected by rubbing my thumb over the area. You should read about that leather. I look forward to seeing how this marvelous wallet ages. Highly recommended!
Got it in my mail after a long wait, shipped all the way to Sweden. I ordered it with red thread and I really love it, been using it for 2 weeks now and the wallet keeps getting better and better:). The leather is really soft and the smell from CXL is fantastic!
Beautiful wallet. I love it.
A wonderfully delicious small wallet full of style and that holds exactly what I use daily.
Amazing leather, best wallet i had.
Really great product, not too bulky and will last a long time.
I am very happy with the wallet I received. The pockets are pretty tight initially, but they loosen up after a few weeks. I purchased the driftwood with blue stitching and at first the stitching was very dark colored but has become more blue over the past couple of weeks. The only problem is that at the edge of the wallet, two pieces of leather are separating. This hasn't been a huge problem so far, but I will update if it worsens over time.
After a lot of research, I found the perfect budget leather wallet that doesn't lack in build. I've tried other brands that had nice designs but they all used a very thin leather but that is not the case with popov. My only complaint is that the two pieces of leather on mine were stitched together but no sealant was used so the leather can sometimes separate to the stitches. I put a little bit of glue to hold it together to fix the problem. Other than that I am 100% happy with the purchase and the wallet has already aged beautifully in the three weeks I've had it.
I got these as groomsmen gifts and had to get one for myself. The quality is unmatched and far outweighs any other wallet I've had. Would purchase again in a heartbeat, but probably won't have to because this baby was built to last!
I would recommend it without reservation! Perfect for the front pocket. Carries what is needed. Will outlast me I imagine.
Excellent quality, size and customer support. Over the last 10 years I have gone from a Tumi checkbook style with 7 cards and an annual 1 hour clean out of year old receipts/business cards to a 6 pocket/money clip and now a Popov 5 card wallet. Couldn't be happier. Front pocket usable and with time will fit another card or so. Keyring is the same quality and nice size.
When I first received the wallet I was impressed, the quality was evident and I had no complaints. I got my initials stamped on it and they looked great. Had a couple questions during the ordering process and Ryan answered them quickly and professionally.
I wanted to wait a little bit before I wrote this review, so that I gave my honest impression.
It still is a great wallet, it is starting to develop a great look/patina with the little nicks and such that develop riding along in my pocket next to my money clip. It has held up under daily use and the occasional getting caught in the rain. I have no qualms about recommending the products at Popov Leather.
love the wallet and how slim it is, i foudn that using cash is a bit of a hassle so i've switched to primarily card use but other than that i'm in love with it
I received the five card wallet the other day, and it is outstanding in every way. The leather and craftsmanship are great. It was also a pleasure dealing with and doing business with this small leather shop. I would HIGHLY recommend Popov Leather to everyone!
$60? For real? *Outstanding* craftsmanship, quality, feel and function. Mr. Popov could charge twice as much, and the wallet would *still* be a steal. Ample room. I was a little bit concerned about space before ordering, but I've comfortably fit 10-12 cards without making the wallet feel bulky. I'm a commuter, and the exterior/front pocket is great for train/bus cards; I always know which side of the wallet to tap against the RFID reader.
Superb craftsmanship, finest materials, and great design. I love using the front pocket, it is very convenient. Buy one, you will not be disappointed.
This 5 pocket wallet is a great quality chromexcel leather. The stitching is perfect and is all hand stitched and hand made. It's perfect and will age beautifully over time.
Everything from the smell of the chromexcel to the feel is unlike any other wallet I've ever owned. Holds 8 cards and cash very comfortably. Never thought I would use the word proud to review a wallet but I did.
It's very seldom that I buy anything and I'm instantly impressed. Popov has changed that. The leather is just as soft as described. The stitching is immaculate. The smell is addictive. This wallet just oozes quality. Great customer service. What else can you ask for. I'll have this wallet for years to come. I've also recommended this company to all of my co workers who have asked about my wallet. Keep up the good work!
Very happy with the quality of product. Have received a few compliments and have recommended the brand and product to many. I did have to cut down on the amount of cards I keep in my wallet, but probably for the better. Slim profile fits well in the front pocket as well as the back pocket. Takes nicks from anything harder than a fingernail, but they fade after a while. Great product, would recommend to anyone.
Ok. I am not a patient person so waiting on a wallet for 2 1/2 weeks...I was kinda skeptical. I received my wallet today....instant satisfaction. The leather and stitching is well above my expectations. Customer service is superb. Ryan answers all your questions swiftly and seems to be an all around cool cat. He even answered all of my questions on Instagram. But back to the wallet....this is one of the few things that I have bought and instantly realized my money was well spent. Excellent work. Leather is butter soft, smells great and just reeks quality. Then on top of it all they threw in a 20% off card. I'll be ordering my next product soon.
This wallet is way better than what i expected, perfectly made, the leather is soft and smells great. I cant stop playing with my new wallet, im telling everyone about it.
I've now had this wallet for about a month, and I'm loving it. The style is simple but trendy. The durability is great. And it's able hold about 11 cards plus bills and other thin paper cards. Definitely recommend Popov.
Very well made and I received the wallet as promised very timely.
i have quite a lot of leather wallets but this one is my favourite! after a month of use, it has already developed a great patina. workmanship is excellent, and it was very nice communicating with Ryan! looking forward to my next purchase! cheers!
I've had this wallet for a month now and it has been working out great. The leather is high quality and the craftsmanship is excellent. It was a bit tight at first, but the leather has softened and most of my cards slide in and out with ease now while still feeling secure in it. The leather is pretty thick and I don't know if I would really call it a "slim" wallet, but regardless it's well made and I'm pleased with my purchase.
Extremely well made wallet and it smells so good!! lol
Thanks Ryan for the excelet customer service.
only word, excelent
I've had the wallet for about a month now. Very well made leather and I can't wait to see it age!
This wallet is not for someone looking for ultra thin. This is a beautiful thick piece of leather that smells great and looks better with every day of use. Good value.
This wallet is quality. It is thick and well put together. In the 3 weeks I have had it it has already started to age very well. I look forward to carrying this wallet for years to come.
Quality leather and fine workmanship. You won't be disappointed at all. This is simply a great quality wallet
This is one of the best wallets I have ever owned. It has truly helped me make the transition to being a minimalist. I only carry 6 cards in it, and it has an awesome smell. I love the way it sounds like a book when closing! I will definitely be buying more Popov products in the future; that is of course, after I win one of the card holders.I plant to put my initials or my son's initials on the next one. I highly recommend this product for anyone who enjoys fine leather products.
I have always carried a bi-fold wallet in my back pocket so I was a little concerned about changing to a slim front pocket wallet. My concern only lasted about 5 minutes. The minimalist design is perfect for me now that I have switched to carrying no cash. Absolutely no complaints
I purchased the 5 card leather wallet just over a month ago. The unique style is unlike any other wallet I have ever owned - I am very pleased. Since the time of its arrival, the leather has acquired some handsome wear marks and continues to get better with time. This wallet will be with me for the long haul.
First a word of warning. If you are a person that likes to stuff a wallet with old membership cards and receipts that are 4 years old, this is not the wallet for you. However, if you are someone that carries cash and about 10 or less cards this wallet will work great! The chromexcel leather is amazingly supple and will take the shape of the contents of your wallet beautifully. The tiger thread stitching is very strong which makes the overall construction of the wallet very durable. With the added addition of your initials and choice in the color of the stitching the wallet really becomes yours and is something you can use proudly for many years.
wears really nicely, great quality, love it!
I bought this as a gift. When asked for feedback, this was the response. The Driftwood Chromexcel 5 Card Leather Wallet has exquisite craftsmanship. Smells like well-crafted leather.
Love the wallet! I don't think I'm ever gonna have to buy another one. It has been holding up great and I like the feel the leather.
Excellent service excellent product
I have had the wallet for 2 months - the wallet has loosened up slightly and the cards fit well. It looks rugged and sturdy, everything about it says 'hand built quality'.
This is a great looking wallet. It's built to last and fits my cash and cards in there nicely. My only gripe is that its a tad too thick to fit in your front pocket whilst wearing tight jeans.
Great quality simple wallet with wonderful craftsmanship. It only holds a small amount of cards and cash which I was going for just that. I'm very halt with my wallet. Shipping was fast even though they were in the process of moving in a new building. They made it quickly and sent it out. Just remarkable.
This wallet is simply the best wallet on the market! It looks amazing & gets better with time - the leather ages, darkens, & becomes more unique each day! The craftsmanship in this product is second to none - you can see that Ryan loves what he does through his choice of premium leather, threads, & stitching. The real added bonus is the one to one service offered by Popov leather - I sent them an email & I received a response within minutes; Ryan offered his advice, which I took, & I couldn't be happier with the product I received. This wallet is a joy to behold & I look foward to seeing it every time I take it from my pocket. I will be purchasing more items in the near future. Keep up the awesome work Ryan!
This is a great wallet! Resistant, very well hand-stitched and develops nice patina in few days! Highly recommended! I'm actually temped to buy another one just in case I loose the one I already bought.
Best ive ever owned
Timely shipping, and I really like the leather, the construction and the embossing. It scratches rather easily, but that's to be expected with any leather product, I think. Overall a great product. :)
Absolutely love the 5 card wallet. The leather smells amazing and it fits what I need in a daily basis with some room for more if needed. Shipping took longer than expected (I live less than 700 miles from the new shop), but that's postal service and slow customs, the wallet was done in a few days and shipped, so it was outside factors. This thing is amazing. Stitching is spot on and arrow straight, which is admirable with hand stitching and shows the amount of patience and skill from Ryan and the leather is top notch and I can't wait for it to show some patina and wear. My only regret is not getting letters (didn't know lower case was an option until after) and it looks really nice. Don't hesitate, just buy one, it's the start of what may become an addiction on my part, it's that impressive. Keep up the great work! Next stop, a field notes cover....
I was apprehensive about switching from a billfold to a smaller cardholder but I'm SO happy with it! I don't use cash much so it's not a big deal to fold it up. The outside pocket is really convenient for my most used cards. It's great quality, sturdy, and beautiful. And it smells great.
Looks awesome. Smells awesome. Feels awesome.
a great purchase from the RFD site I like the tight fitting card slots as hold
about 8 all total
The wallet looks awesome. After 2 months of wear, the wallet is starting to blue a little from my jeans, but other than that I can't complain.
I bought a tetris themed wallet through the popov etsy site for my husband a year ago and I have to say this is money VERY well spent. Its held up beautifully with no wear and tear. Its still gorgeous. Glad I found the actual website. Great quality craftsmanship.
Beautifully made - I love it, 101%. Perfect slot for my transit pass to show the driver without having to open my wallet. Canada Post made me wait a couple of weeks to get it but it was definitely worth it. Will have to get used to the absence of a coin slot, though :)
Excellent quality wallet. Great craftsmanship and design.
I ordered 5 personalized wallets for my wedding party. The all loved the detail, quality and workmanship put into each and every wallet. The wallets were completed and delivered promptly. I would definitely make another purchase. Thanks Ryan.
This is an amazing, amazing wallet, and such incredible value at this price point. Couple that with the lifetime guarantee and this is probably the best product on the market. I'll definitely be ordering more as gifts for people I know.
Incidentally, the cloth bag that the wallet came in was literally a perfect fit for my Kindle Paperwhite, so that saves me the need to buy a sleeve for that.
I love my 5 card wallet. Fantastic work and craftsmanship. You won't be disappointed.
Good size, good quality. Looks and feels better with time. Thnaks !
Awesome product, looks great, fits well, great customer service. Thank you!
Great wallet. Really impressed with the end result and the owner is a stand-up guy.
The quality of this wallet is amazing. I have been using it for a while now and really enjoy it and have gotten compliments on it. Little by little is loosening up to fit all my cards and getting a nice fade from my raw jeans.
I bought the 5 Card Wallet to replace my thick bifold with fold out license holder that I have been using for the last 6 years. The craftsmanship on this wallet is incredible and the look is gorgeous. Went with the cream thread, looks fantastic. It's nice and slim and really only holds what I need. Debit Card, Credit Card, License, A Couple Bucks. Definitely nice not to have a bulging back pocket anymore.
Really an amazing product. Came nicely wrapped up in a little bag. I opened it to smell fresh leather. The wallet stays nice and slim and looks really sleek. I'm getting lots of compliments on it already. Definitely recommended!
I've only been using it for about a week, but I can already tell it's going to hold together great. The stitching is superb, and the leather is of high quality. Can't wait until it gets more broken in -- I imagine this is the type of product that will get better over time.
No better wallet for the price. The leather is excellent quality and the stitching is superb. This wallet will last. Will definitely buy more from Popov in the future. Shipping to Kentucky took a while, but worth the wait.
The leather quality is probably my favorite part of this wallet as it feels supple yet substantial at the same time. The wallet is constructed quite sturdily and the stitching looks well done. I'm sure this wallet will last me a long time. It is a bit thicker than I expected though, given that it is described as compact, and thus can be a bit tricky to fit into my front pants pocket at times.
