by Adventurous AlaskanfromI'm a guy and I love itI've worn it as my wallet all over the Hawaiian islands, and it's nice to know that my important stuff is safe. Wear it under a shirt, and no one will be the wiser.

by lovertreefromAlmost perfectThe strap pulled out of one of the eyelets and I could never get it to stay secure after that. Otherwise I really liked it. It needs a sturdier connection to the strap for daily use.

by Likes Practical ComfortfromDon't know how I'd live without itI use this as my everyday wallet, as I love its zippered closure and the fact that it slides easily in and out of my purse or a travel vest pocket. Having two currency pockets is useful for travel, as is the size, but I'd love to have a version that is designed just for our slimmer US currency (to take up less room in my purse). It would also be nice to have a version that has RFID protection. But I haven't yet found a smaller or RFID wallet that would work as well for me, so I'm happily continuing to use this one. The neck strap is probably not substantial enough for everyday use, but it disappears into the outer pocket, to be pulled out and used when the situation warrants it.

by Suzanne in BoulderfromWhat I always use to travelI bought one of these several years ago and then another one more recently. I like to make sure I know where everything is when I travel, so I actually wear this around my neck.
The one issue I wish worked differently is that when I am wearing it and unzip it, the wallet opens up vertically. That means the wallet is hanging open and money theoretically could fall out if I don't watch. The paper money compartment isn't zippered (although there is a zippered compartment for change and to stick in your drivers license if you want that protected and easy to get to.
But what this all means is that to open the wallet, you should take it off your neck. There is a zipper all the way around the wallet, so when it is zipped and you are wearing the wallet, it is quite secure. Nothing can fall out.
There are also lots of credit card slots.
I've looked at other travel wallets and this one is still the best for the money.
