I bought this cover (my 3rd from Popov) for personal use, along with a cardholder as a gift. I added large pen loops to fit my Kaweco AL Sport and it fit just perfect. The quality, as with all Popov products, is just second to none. So great. I'm a very satisfied customer and plan to return again and again.
I recently purchased this cardholder as a gift. When it arrived, I gave it a quick inspection and it was just so well made; as always. Not my first purchase from Popov and certainly not my last. Simply my favourite leather products out there.
Came exactly as I was hoping. Beautifully crafted using top quality materials.
I spent a lot of time researching wallets online and kept seeing Popov mentioned over the course of a few months. I eventually decided to finally pull the trigger and make a decision on a wallet purchase. I went with Popov due to the other positive reviews online that kept mentioning the quality of the work they were producing. I can attest that the other reviews were correct. This wallet is beautiful.
I went with a combination of chocolate leather and navy blue stitching. It pairs really well and I would highly recommend it.
Second purchase I've made now from Ryan. This time it was five, 5 card wallets for my groomsmen. I got an assortment with their initials, but the driftwood was my favourite. The feel of the leather is outstanding. Plan on buying one for myself in the near future!
I got the 5 card wallet to replace the cheap old bi-fold I had before. The wallet looks fantastic and easily fits everything I need (5 cards and 2 emergency bills) in a much smaller package then before. Very happy with the wallet and would recommend it to anybody.
I've compared this to the "factory's" felt mat and my old rubber using a brand new 180 gram Blink 182 LP. Without a doubt the same tracks sound more full on the leather, zero shortage in bass and the high tones are absolutely crisp and precise. I haven't noticed any dust so it definitely doesn't attract it, anyways, it's extremely simple to wipe clean. I've played more than a few albums back to back, and quite literally this thing hasn't withheld any static. Although I use an anti-static brush each album flip, if you care about your lp's developing pops, I don't think you'll have to worry. The only tweaking you'll need to do for full value out of this mat is to raise or lower the height of your needle, because the leather is certainly thicker than felt, and is more comparable to the thickness of a rubber mat. The hole was perfect for my turntables center pin, it didn't need to be forced on but it's not at all loose. Zero slip when I start it spinning, and it lays absolutely flat. Thanks again, Popov!
Awesome quality and looks great on wrist!
At first, I found the wallet quite beautiful and rough but too rigid.
After a little while, the leather became softer. The daily small scratches give it a unique character. The smell is amazing.
I will most probably buy other products from Ryan.
Beautiful leather and construction. I love it!
Highly recommended best quality of leather A++++++
I have been looking for a high quality leather notebook cover for a while and have finally found it. I am very impressed with the quality of the leather and the craftmanship. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a high quality notebook cover.
Strap is great and fits perfectly. Highly recommend to anyone!
Amazing Quality, I just wish the hoops were bigger (ordered Large Hoops). In my Original hobonichi cover the hoops were so big I could accommodate up to 3 pens/pencils. Besides that, the leather is amazing quality!! and the character is beginning to show, can't wait to see what it will look like after a few years.
Works very well to bring back that nice look to the leather!
I'm very happy with this wallet. Gives me a sense of pride every time I have to bring it out. Beautiful piece of work!
I bought this as an accessory item to use occasionally; it is so professionally made and fantastic to hold that I use it quite often so I can show it off. I have now ordered an A5 cover for my main notebook and will replace my wallet shortly as well! Great to support someone in my childhood stomping grounds who is putting out such fine products; keep it up!
I bought this notebook cover as a gift for my wife, but now I'm jealous. The English tan derby leather is gorgeous and thick, and the tone looks even better in real life than it does in the pictures. Tons of character. I'm thinking about a wallet from the same leather now...
I could not of been happier when I received this wallet. The quality and workmanship is second to none. I would definitely buy another. Next time engraved.
I am very happy with my new leather watch strap. It can dress up or down. I currently have it on a vintage omega seamaster. The combination of top quality Horween Leather, Canadian craftsmanship, and very reasonable price make this an exceptional value. Don't bother with cheaper offshore imitations.
I've been using this wallet for about 3 weeks now, and I love it. I've already convinced one of my coworkers to buy a Popov wallet!
Couldn't be happier with the design and quality craftsmanship! First rate.
Very good product that has high quality materials and solid construction. I also bought the quickdraw wallet and thought it was an excellent purchase.
Ryan really seems passionate about his work, to me it is really worth it to support quality Canadian products makers like him.
Definately make sure you follow the ordering instructions when place your order for your belt.
This wallet was a huge upgrade from my old Fossil wallet. The stitching and workmanship is very nice; I love the red and black combo and I have gotten looks of astonishment when they saw my initials inscribed on the front. After only 3 weeks of use, however, the wallet is not holding up as well as I thought it would. I will note a few issues I’ve had with this wallet. Firstly, you absolutely must keep this wallet away from sharp objects: keys will scratch the wallet permanently. Even the edges of my inear headphones left a scratch that will not be able to be healed. I feel this wallet will be full of scratches in a few months, which may be something to consider. Secondly, placing bills inside the wallet is quite tough with the raw hide; but on the flip side this results thinner profile. Lastly, a small caveat: this thing gets covered in lint within seconds of being in my pocket! Overall, this is the best price I could find for a handmade wallet and far better than anything that can be found in a department store.
The picture I think says it all. The engraving is great, the colour is great, it's a really great product. I stay to one card per slot and actually evade using the 5th on the outside. I feel it's best used for stray cash but you can also keep cash well on the inside by planting it in on of the card slots. I've only owned this for about two weeks so far though but my impression is that if you stretch out the card slots that the tightness could be impacted. So I suggest you come up with a wallet plan and try and keep each slot the same size as you intend it to me.
I can only dream of feeling cozy as my pen looks. Took a risk getting the “small” for my Parker Sonnet, but it's perfectly snug after a week of working it in with the smaller, Parker Jotter. The Sonnet's cap extends no more than a half inch out the top, which is all I need to slide it out, no problem. I'm likely pushing the capacity limit but as always with Popov, the stitching is masterful, the burnish is solid and the leather is tops. The case keeps my pen upright and protected in my pocket, does exactly what I needed, at a great price, feels great, looks great!
I just love the design of this wallet. The leather Popov uses is extremely high quality so it naturally has a thickness to it. That's why it's important to use as few layers as possible so a minimalist wallet like this doesn't get too bulky. I think this cardholder design is the perfect trade-off between form and function.
I've held a Bellroy Card Sleeve, and while it is thinner, and a bit trendier, I like the Popov better. There's just something to the old fashioned quality, and the feel and smell can't be beat.
I had requested a custom vector graphic of my initials etched on the wallet and Ryan was a pleasure to deal with. I gave him the SVG, no hassle, and it turned out perfect. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with it.
I think if you're looking for a high quality minimalist wallet, this just can't be beat. I have a few bills in the front, 3-4 essential cards in the middle, and my CC in the back. It's perfect.
Because it's absolutely amazing!
Thank you guys for all your effort, you do amazing work. The hardest decision surrounding this wallet is what to keep in it, since I had a lot of stuff in my old one.
The stellar build quality alone just astounds me. The stitching is superb and the leather is beautiful and matures with grace.
If this ever comes in the cherry leather, I will definitely get another :)
This is the 3rd item I've purchased from Popov Leather, and it never fails to impress. Quality leather, good stitching, and great attention to detail make this well worth the cost. Super happy with my purchase.
This single case effectively replaced two other cases I was using for travel, yet still maintains a slimmer profile. Love it! Canadian cherry-red, white thread, absolutely perfect.
Ordered this as a gift for my husband after having gifted 2 wallets previously (to my dad and brother). All 3 recipients love their wallets. The details are really thought out and make the wallet superb. Beautiful thick leather and great quality thread. Also the way the fold operates is perfection.
Bought this as a present for my dad and he absolutely loves it! It's roomy and made of soft, gorgeous leather. Really high quality zipper too. I want one for myself!
Really happy with the strap, will be ordering more for sure. Looks great on my Hamilton!
its a incredible wallet best ive ever had.
I must say, I was pleasantly surprised with how nice these write.
The only issue I had was I had to wet and stretch my Popov field note holders pen holder to fit them. Not a big deal however, now they fit nice and snug!
If I manage to use 6 pens I'll be sure to order more.
As good as it gets. Ryan is a master craftsman, and Popov Leather pricing, marketing, and delivery are each extremely likely to ensure buyers are very happy with their choices. Custom graphics such as on the business card holder that I ordered were no problem. The cut and stitching are perfect. The leather is of the absolute highest quality, and the smell of it is beautiful. You will be happy that you went with Popov Leather.
Beautifully cut piece of leather. Record player looks and sounds better now than it did with the original felt mat.
I purchased this wallet for my husband as an anniversary gift. He loves the quality of the leather and the craftsmanship, and the engraving is a lovely added touch. It has the space to store everything he needs. Love supporting a handmade, Canadian business!
Great craftsmanship. Well done! I love this Wallet. Waiting on the business card holder now.
The wallet came on time and is of superb make. It feels smooth to the touch and the leather's richness gives it a high quality feel and look. The threading was done well, as was the laser printing. The cards fit well and I don't feel like I have to worry about them being damaged. Overall, great and what I expect of a high quality product.
Great card holder - saves a big bulky wallet in my purse.
After trying several front pocket wallets, what I can say when I got this wallet is that the quality of this thing feels amazing! The leather, the stitching, the right size/design, you know like just holding it with cards n cash in it "feels right" if that makes sense.
Very nice product, well made hand made. Thank you!
Awesome. Good quality
The quality and workmanship is outstanding. Very pleased with the product and the service received. Highly recommended!
I actually ordered this pen sleeve in the Horween Navy leather, not the Cherry. It looks Black in the photo, but in real life it is a very dark Navy with lighter Navy at stress points.
As soon as it was in my hand I could tell right away that this was a sturdy, rugged, and well made sleeve that would protect the finish of my Copper Orange Lamy Al-star (which I want to keep looking as good as possible, given the rarity of it!). My Lamy fit very tightly at first, but after about a month the leather has conformed to it and it fits like a glove, making a very satisfying *click* when I put it back in after using it.
The Horween leather is about 1/8" thick and is wearing well. There is a 1/4" gap between the top of the pen and to edge of the leather sleeve, which provides drop protection, but pinching the seams of sleeve pops it open a bit and allows you to easily grab the top of the pen and pull it out.
I look forward to picking up a few more of these sleeves in the future!
Just wanted to write a quick thank you for the great wallet, which impressively looks even better in person than in the displayed pictures. Super fast communication, answering every and all questions I had, great packaging (and branding) and shipped quickly. But most importantly, I couldn't be happier with the wallet, which is looking better and better each day as it breaks in.
Thanks again, I'll surely be ordering another in the future.
I got this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it! Beautifully crafted, and very nice leather. Love that this wallet was handmade here in Canada!
The strap itself is beautifully made from the best leather available. Pairing it with one of the best inexpensive everyday watches you can buy (timex weekender) makes for a lovely combo that receives many compliments
This cardholder wallet feels, looks and smells great.
I got this for everyday card carrying since I don't hold on to cash often, I wanted something minimal.
I also got the Passport Case and Traditional Wallet in matching color.
