Leather Sport Wallet
RFID Theft Protection
Canceling your credit cards due to a lost or stolen wallet is a pain. Being a victim of RFID skimming is even worse. This form of theft uses high-frequency scanners (13.56 MHz) to duplicate credit card and passport information from a distance, without touching your wallet. Our RFID blocking products contain an ultra-thin layer of military-grade RFID blocking material to prevent information theft and give you peace of mind.
This is my second Sport
This is my second Sport Wallet. I ordered a new one only because I wore my old on out after 8 years of use. Favorite Wallet ever!
No longer as minimalist as it once was
I've been a big fan of Allett's wallets for a while now. After 8 years of heavy use, my current Leather Sport was literally coming apart at the seams. So it was time for a new one. I'm very disappointed to find that at some point in the last few years, they changed the design to be well over twice as thick. The leather is thicker, which I can partly forgive... it seems sturdier as a result. What I don't like are the "grip" panels inside the pockets, designed to keep the cards in. I never had a problem with the cards falling out -- that seems like the whole point of the inward-facing pockets. The new panels simply make it hard to get the cards out, *and* they needlessly add meaningful thickness to the wallet, that I don't want! Between the beefier leather and the thick "sticky" pads, this is no longer the outrageously thin leather wallet that it once was. It's still thinner than average, but not dramatically so. I'm unfortunately very disappointed, after being a big fan for more than a decade.
Fit and Function
I'd known about Allett or sometime but I only recently found the sport version. The original is frankly too large for my purposes which is front pocket carry. but the sport version is a perfect blend of fit and function. I have experimented with many different types of wallets over the years. Anything from wallets designed primarily to carry plastic cards. To bespoke leather products. A wallet designed only to carry cards is a nightmare to manage money in and an entirely leather wallet made out of thick high quality leather is, well thick. as much as I'd like to get away from it I can never entirely get away from using money there are too many social instances where you just have to have it. Power outages, tipping a valet, tipping in restaurants. I found the sport wallet because I was searching for a wallet that had its dimensions. And of those choices this was by far and away the thinnest. I have never seen a bifold wallet that packs down to a size like this.
I bought this wallet and received it today. It's quite impressive that i can hold wallet without being interrupted anymore. I can truly recommend it to someone wants to try minimalism. But not for the people who get satisfied with bringing his whole property.
Exactly As Advertised
This is my second slim leather allett and it's exactly as advertised. If this one lasts 11 years like the last one I'll be more than satisfied. Even when it did fail the cause was the stitching started to come undone. No rips or cracks in the leather or nylon itself. I possibly could've just had it sewn back together and gotten years more life out of it.
