My Thoughts

These wallets are fun to use. They are an instant conversation stater as soon as you pull it out to pay for anything anywhere. Very durable and built of quality materials. The leather wallet is considerably heavier than the original, but you are getting the fancier look. It will be interesting to revisit this a year or two down the road and see how well they are holding up.
