I've owned four Eagle Creek tri-fold wallets in my life. The first one I owned lasted for years, but the last three all needed to be replaced after about a year's use. So I gave this PacSafe a try and WOW - what a great wallet it is.
The wallet is durable and has a number of useful pockets, including a zippered pocket on the center back and a velcro pocket on the inside folding flap. And there is plenty of space to hold credit cards without fear that they'll slip out the side.
The only thing I'd change (and I do hope they will by the time I need to buy a new one, however far in the future that may be) is the zipper on the money pocket. There's a divider in the money area that allows you to separate your money into two areas - handy if you're traveling and don't want to mix currencies. But it would have been nicer if they had put the zipper in so that it would zip closed only 1 of the 2 sections, not both.
I get why they did it the way they did, so you can zip up all of your currency, but I think it would be better to have one part zippered and the other not. That way you could zip up all your cash, some of your cash, or none of your cash. Right now, it's all or none. No "some" option. (Having one zippered section would also allow you to hide exactly how much cash you have in your wallet.)
If they made that one change it would make the wallet just that much more useful, although even without the change it's still the best wallet I've ever owned.
I'd really like to give it 4.5 stars, but since that isn't an option I'll have to give it 5. With the zipper change, I'd give it 5 stars wholeheartedly.
