INTRO

So, I’ve always struggled with finding a wallet that is durable, small and looks good. I always seem to be able to find the other two, but slim is where I always go wrong, and I end up overstuffing my wallet and cards break all the time. In reality, I only need to carry 4 cards, everything else I just have on my phone, and I certainly don’t need the hunk of receipts I normally carry. Therefore, I went on a search to find a product that was slim, looked good, durable and had a money clip. I came across Georgian Bay Collective’s, Vintage Handcrafted Wallet with Money Clip, and decided to give it a go!

DETAILS (Taken Directly From The Site)

• 6 Card Slots (If you need more then that, maybe you could lend us a million?)

• Super Strong Magnetic Money Clip (Yeah, your change sticks to it too!)

• Interior Side Pocket (Save your receipts, and expense those “business lunches”)

• Environmentally Friendly Burlap Bag with Pull Ties • Dimensions: 10.5cm x 7.2cm x 0.4cm

PACKAGE AND SHIPMENT

The package arrived super quick, basically two days after I ordered it. It came with an nice handwritten note from the company, and the wallet was in a burlap bag, with the logo handstamped on it. The actual wallet, had a Canadian Nickel on the magnetic money clip, which is a nice touch, and a good idea for anyone who holds the superstition that you should’t give a wallet without money it it.

PRICE

Was $39.99 plus $8.00 for shipping. Compared to some of the other wallets I’ve purchased and being something I’ll use everyday, for the cost of eating out 5 times, it’s definitely a good price range, especially considering it’s a handcrafted product.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS

I’ve been using it for over a week now. The magnet is super strong, it’s very slim and fits in a back pocket nicely and still rigid enough to not be floppy. The leather is a really nice colour, and it feels very sturdy overall, though the leather does seem to take marks easier then other wallets I’ve had. I actually don’t mind that at all though as it ads to the vintage look. Cards slide in nice, and the side pocket is nice to hold limited receipts.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

Very happy with my purchase, like the brand, and don’t think I’ll be needing to get another wallet for a while. If I do, I’ll probably get another one of these.
