I carried a big awkward wallet for years, which was always filling up with receipts and small change I didn't need, so I decided to look online for something that could simply fit in my pocket and carry what I needed. I ordered the Popov and it has turned out to be perfect. It is a top quality wallet which fits even large Euro notes folded once, along with all my cards. If you are struggling, as I was, to choose between this an another, my advise would be to go with this. If I ever need a new wallet, which I doubt I will, I will definitely get another one of these.
I'm 63 years young and this is simply the best wallet I've ever owned, the leather,
the stitching, the design are all top quality. I'm a cyclist and love my Brooks saddles, this 5 card wallet is like that. In fact I've ordered another Popov wallet of a different style and colour. These will make excellent gifts as well.
Got my 5-card wallet in between the estimated time and carefully packed. Really nice first impression, solid stitching, thick leather enough to be durable but not so to be bulky. Really glad I went with this newer version and not the older one, which would be a bit too much for a front pocket wallet, I guess. Fits perfectly Euro bills (up to 50€ bill) folded once. I use its one side, the one that does not have the outer pocket, just for cash, for easy access, and the other side for cards. As the company states, due to the leather nature, colour may vary. Mine came in a significantly darker driftwood colour than the pictured one, so keep that in mind. It is equally beautiful though! Thanks guys, with so many great stuff I 'll likely come back in the future for sure. Cheers
Oh man, I don't even know where to begin. I've been waiting eagerly for this wallet to come ever since the day I placed my order with Ryan. One day it arrived and I was able to justify my thoughts because Ryan's craftsmanship is beautiful. This is my first leather wallet and I fell in love with the feel and smell of it as soon as I removed it from its packaging. On that note, I'm not the biggest fan of having my initials on items but my initials look so perfect on this thing. They cream stitching looks wonderful with the leather. This easily fits into my front pocket without displaying any bulk. Scratches as a result of my careless wallet placement buff out easily and if they don't buff out all the way, I know they're going to be part of a wonderful story I remember every time I look at my wallet. This wallet is at an amazing value and is worth wait. Thanks so much Ryan.
Absolutely love it .
It smells and feels devine and the workmanship is top notch,best wallet I've ever had.
I live in the U.K. So it cost me an extra 20 quid to get it through customs but oh so worth it well done Popov and thank you .
Love it. First of all. The feel and smell of the new leather was awesome. It's soft easy to mold to your butt. Cards fit nice and tight but still easy to get access too. I did the blue stitching and goes great with the color of leather. Thanks. Great work!!
Bought this for my boyfriend as a gift and he really loves it. The engraving is a beautiful touch and does not look tacky or out of place like some engraving tends to look. I recommend this product to anyone who is thinking about purchasing it. Top notch.
I've been using this wallet for about a month and I love it. Top craftsmanship, well above what you would expect at this price point. The CXL leather is ideal for this application. Just a bit of elasticity but it maintains its shape and rigidity. Snaps back from being overloaded no problem (though I wouldn't put more than 3 cards per slot to be safe). Some contouring but not too much. Scratches rub out easily. Much better than more expensive boutique makers out there that manufacture wallets so stiff they are basically useless. It's exactly what I needed. Thanks!
I've owned this wallet for about 3 weeks now and love it. It's just the right thickness for us front-pocket wallet people. My only qualm is that you have to be selective with card storage, but that's really the offset with a bi-fold vs a tri-fold. I store 11 cards in mine for reference. Overall, good quality and would definitely recommend it to other people.
Purchased for my husband for Christmas he loves it! Monogram looks great, very nice quality product. I will purchase again for others!
Have had this wallet and the field notes cover now for about 2 weeks and so far they're holding up perfectly and starting to get a slight patina. Holds cash folded in half perfectly and fits in the front pocket without being bulky.
Quality is fantastic and I'll definitely buy more from Popov Leather.
Amazing leather, very sturdy construction. Cards and folded cash fit perfectly. Very happy with this wallet!
Perfect wallet! Bought the 5 card wallet for my dad for Father's day. He liked it so much that I decided to get myself one. The quality is awesome! Will be returning for all my future needs. Thanks Popov Leather!
I had been looking for a quality wallet for quite some time before I found this one. The chromexcel leather smells amazing and is very supple. I carry about six cards but could probably fit more once it's fully broken in. The craftsmanship is top-notch and it's easy to see that Mr. Popov takes a great deal of pride in his products. The personalized initials are also a really classy touch. I'm very happy with this purchase and highly recommend anyone looking for a new wallet to get the Driftwood.
I honestly doubted that the quality would be all that great considering the fairly low price, but the wallet just feels incredible. It's so much nicer than any other wallet (or any other leather product) that I've ever owned. I've since recommended Popov products to pretty much everyone who will listen. And quality aside, the design of the wallet is great as well. It's the perfect size for my pocket, and the front slot is great for a Presto pass, which I can tap without removing the card from my wallet at all. Overall, this is a fantastic purchase, and it is more than worth the price.
So far, I really like this wallet. I've had it for a few weeks and the small, thin size makes it perfect for keeping in my front pocket. It holds more than I expected - 2 IDs, 3 credit cards, insurance card and cash. My old wallet was overstuffed with loyalty cards, receipts, and other junk. I don't really miss any of it! My one caveat is that the leather is scuffed or marked pretty easily, even by keys or other objects in your pocket, so just be aware of what you put with it. Despite that, it seems like it will last a long time. Might get more of these as Xmas gifts this year.
Initials stamped on the front are a nice touch. Would be nice to have had a Samuel L. Jackson option. You know, to stamp "Bad Mother****er" on it.
This wallet was delivered in a reasonable time and looks very well made.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I've had the wallet for about a month now. Very well made leather and I can't wait to see it age!
only word, excelent
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!
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 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.
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'.
Excellent service excellent product
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.
Best ive ever owned
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.
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!
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. :)
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.
