You can immediately tell this item is well made. Leather feels, looks, and smells great. The stitching is superb. I imagine this item will last a lifetime with proper care. I have 8 cards in here and they don't fall out, nice fit, and that includes room to put a couples bills of cash in as well if needed. Perfect item for me.
The Wallet is beautiful.. exactly what I wanted and expected.
I've used the wallet daily for over a month now, and I simply can't imagine anything better. Congratulations Popoff, you've converted a ‘vegan’ into a returning customer.
The leather is very supple and full of character. The edges have a nice finish too. I got the extra card slots, so I can fit all my important cards. It's a bit larger than I expected, and compared to my previous handmade wallet, but the cards are more accessible, it fits bills folded in half, and it still fits in my front pocket. While the card slots are tight at first, you'll break them in very quickly. However, I still have a bit of trouble sliding bills into the middle slot. Overall, I recommend this wallet for the quality of the leather and craftsmanship!
I haven't actually used the strap yet, since I'm reserving it for cooler weather, but it's got a very tender feel to it. Great stitching. Lovely handiwork.
Ryan is a truly talented craftsman! I struggled to find the perfect Confirmation gift for my Godson and I was just thrilled that I found Ryan's company. The option of personalizing it made all the difference in the world. I feel completely satisfied with my purchase and I very much appreciate their sense of urgency in shipping it directly to my travel destination to meet my deadline. Thanks Ryan...keep up the great work!
Sincere gratitude, Julie
As an update to my pervious review. I was contacted by Ryan and will be sent a new strap to replace the crooked one. This guy is passionate about his products and I am very impressed with the level of service.
works well for me, have 7 cards and a bit of cash in it. love the colour and feel of the leather.
Beautiful strap made with very nice leather. I would highly recommend it!
Bought a 5 card wallet and some saddle soap. Love both to death as well as the service and attention to detail that Popov delivered. Thanks again!
The advertised picture and leather quality was exactly as advertised. The delivery was a little late as per promised.
The size dimensions were perfect. The wallet thickness was thicker than expected in order to downsize. The leather could have been thinner with everything the same. I would recommend it to anyone.
Great craftsmanship, nice design. Very happy with the product.
I bought this for my husband's birthday, and pleasantly surprised by the quality and craftsmanship of the wallet. My husband loves it.
Thank you Popov Team! Excellent customer service and so very nice to have a Canadian distributor for Field Notes.
Good leather quality and good stitching. Couple of sticking points though...
Strap should be longer. Even on a large faced watch I barely had enough length to tuck into the keeper. Also it appears when the band is attached to the watch that the length of the strap is not square with the watch.
I recently ordered two field notes covers - one with pockets, one without, and both with large pen loops. They are so well made and finished - quite lovely to hold and use. The photo is of the bourbon pocketed cover with my favourite fountain pen of the week, a large Faber-Castell. Customer support from Ryan was wonderful. I'm really pleased with my purchases.
I am really pleased with this wallet. Stitching is perfect and the thick leather makes a quality "Canadian" product. Even better that it's made in B.C.!! Love it!
I received this amazing little wallet as a Father's Day gift and man am I pleased. The construction and materials are amazing and as my first high-end wallet purchase I think I got exactly what I expected. Custom engraving is the cherry on top of my Cherry wallet. I have one main card stored in front with 4 inside and some cash in the back. I know it could take more cards but I wouldn't want to stretch it in case I ever wanted to downsize back to the 5 cards I currently carry in it. Not sure how the edging will hold over time; if it will stay stiff or start to separate (up to the stiches), but I know the stitching will hold as everything is extremely well crafted.
It's already got some dings and dents from errors on my part and I have actually cleaned and polished it twice with the saddle soap from Popov just to make it shine again. I will definitely buy from them again as I am three weeks into use and really love it.
We love the five card slim wallet. The quality is outstanding. We love the colour options, leather and thread.
Will purchase again. Great workmanship, Ryan.
I needed a gift on tight timeline so I called and inquired if it was possible. I was able to pick out the leather, thread colour, and laser engraving. It was well packaged, and it arrived with time to spare.
I've done a lot of leather work myself and am very familiar with it. The leather was beautiful, and the stitching was picture perfect. It's almost to nice to use, but that's not why I bought it. I'm sure it'll last me for a very long time. We have also been using passport wallets from Popov Leather for many years now.
I would not hesitate to make another purchase from Popov Leather, and would also recommend their leather products. I feel confident you'll be pleased with your purchase also.
The hardware is very sturdy and I love the antique finish. It has a convenient quick release mechanism, which I find myself using when I want to just carry the ring itself. Beautiful leather finish. A bit larger than I expected and the clasp is a bit stiff at first, but overall a winner!
I got the quick access card slot on one side. It was quite sticky to use at first, and my cards definitely did not come out quick. An easy fix to this was to put one of my business cards underneath the card in the quick draw slot and then the card would slide out with ease.
The construction and build of the wallet is beautiful. the stitching is very strong and it is very comfortable in my pocket.
I did notice at the very top of the middle slot of the wallet, the glue came apart that held together the middle slot. However, it only came apart until it hit the stitches, which do not seem to give at all. This does not seem to be any sort of problem.
Beautiful wallet that is the perfect size for a front pocket. Construction feels great and build quality is excellent.
You will be blown away by the flat wallet. I didnt carry a wallet in my pockets wgile working as it was always too much. I tekl you this thing isn't even noticeable. I keep thinking i lost it an panic.... but its right where i put it.
I got a special naked version (patina is coming along nicely already) and its a little tight right now with 5 cards 5 bills a few buisness cards and a heart coin my son gave me. With time i see getting the 3 more cards i usually carry.
Craftsmanship is outstanding as usual no complaints at all. Dont hesitate if you are looking for a wallet that will carry your daily needs without taking up much spce at all.
I never thought R&J could out do the 5 card that i loved for the last year but unless i need to carry more then 5 to 8 cards i normally do this new flat wont be filling my pockets from now on!
Very nice craftsmanship with high degree of functionality. Would recommend
I gave this wallet to my son as part of his grad present. I wanted something that would last a long time. This wallet exceeded my expectations. It's beautiful made and will be loved for a long long time.
Looks and smells great. I absolutely love using this wallet and think it looks great. The laser engraving is a really nice touch!
I had a very similar style wallet as this that was a little thinner that got a little ruined from water. I bought this with the saddle wax and hope to use this for a long time! This is my third Popov Product and they are all great!
The keychain seems well made, good materials and should last a long time
I picked this wallet up as a replacement to the Roots wallet I have been using for the last couple of years. I had not heard of Popov before and was interested in giving it a try as the design and size seem to fit what I was after.
My initial reaction on receiving the wallet was great, the leather while smooth had toughness and that new leather smell. Reminded me of my dad's wallet from when I was a kid. It was a bit stiff at first - the leather needed to get used to the number of cards i normally take with me.
I have been using it daily since receiving it a month ago, and i'm very impressed with the build and quality of the product.
Would definitely buy again.
Colour and feel of the wallet is fantastic. Will be purchasing from Ryan again!
Really impressed with this product. The stitching is precise and the chocolate finish is beautiful. Zipper opens easily to reveal a spacious interior. Feels very premium.
Ordered with additional 2 card slot and this little wallet can hold a substantial amount considering its size. Stitching and leather are both amazing. This wallet is going to last a long time. Also great customer service.
Great fit, easy to measure and get it right.
I never understood why people spoke about belts before, but my old belt from when I was younger was all warped and ugly.
I love the color of this belt and how it looks!
Looks fantastic, smells even better! Perfect for carrying a few cards and bills, fits nicely in a front pocket. I hardly notice it there. Love the craftsmanship and the color - I got the chocolate with tan thread. Highly recommended.
I actually only received my wallet yesterday or I would have given a review sooner. I love this wallet it's quite a bit thinner than the first wallet I bought from popov leather. I still love my original but found that it was a little bulkier to take with me, especially if it was just going out for a few hours and I know what cards I will need. This wallet is the perfect thickness to just slide in your front pocket, I purchased the one with the easy accesss quick draw pocket and it works perfect! Im calling it my weekend wallet and am very pleased with my choice. Great job again Popov!!
This wallet is exactly what I was looking for; a slim non bulky wallet to carry a few cards and a couple bills.
The craftsmanship is strong and feels like it will last a long time. The wallet also has a "buttery" smoothness to the leather, which feels nice. The colour is great and will likely patina very well.
The only issue with the wallet I have is the ID window. The cut seems a bit too large and thus my license slides out more than I would like, or a corner will sometimes hop through. Not a huge deal but a little annoying at times.
This wallet is almost perfect. I went with the ID window, but the window seems a little too large. The cards I place in there will sometimes poke out, like in the included image. If there's a future version, maybe keep a bit more leather on the top and bottom edges.
Otherwise the wallet is great. Leather is thick and the stitching is nice.
I have the wallet with quick draw and I can't express how comfortable and convenient this wallet is. I like putting my bus pass in the quick draw for easy access.
Leather is awesome, great quality. Well stitched, minor awkward stitches (Not noticeable enough to bother you) but it's because it is hand stitched.
One thing I don't like about this wallet is, the main base (big pocket) is a little too long length-wise = easy corner creases.
There may be some leather pieces behind around the areas that the leather was cut.
Overall: Awesome, Convenient and Beautiful
A review from my younger brother.
This wallet is gorgeous and will last a lifetime! Big fan
Quality of the leather and stitching is outstanding. This is a lifetime investment. Don't really want to call it an "investment" given the low price point. Makes for a great, minimalist front pocket wallet.
I recently received my flat wallet with QuickDraw card slot. The wallet is typical Popov high quality construction. Compared to the card carrier that I normally use, this wallet is flatter. It is dramatically flatter but slim enough that it feels less intrusive in my front pant pocket where I normally carry my wallet. I like the card slot as well. Being a transit commuter, my Compass card fits there and is easily accesible for tapping on and off the Skytrain. Overall, great product. Highly recommended.
This is my second Popov wallet and I couldn't be happier with it. It's the perfect size to feel light but still carry all the essentials I need.
Perfect for when I don't want everything I carry! A great companion to my hobonici. Put the essentials in and off we go!
It is smaller than I thought. Not of much use to me unfortunately
Slender, practical, and beautiful product. I did not realize that there is actually an extra pocket between the card viewer side and card slots side, which has plenty of room for extra cash. I look forward to using it for many years to come!
Soft and beautifully made. Customized initials look classy. Replaced a perfectly fine 15 year old wallet to suit my minimal cards I actually use. Extremely happy with purchase.
This is the second wallet I have ordered, not because anything is wrong with the first, rather, the quality and design was so great, I had to get another. Definitely will be buying more in the future, great works of art!
Happy with the purchase and quality that went into the product.
Quality leather, good fit , simple, not the only product i bought always satisfied i recommend this product.
We gave this to the Operations manager at KCR and he loved it. We had you laser cut the logo into it and that looks kick-ass.Thank you so much for your fast quality work.
