Dad loves the wallet - he keeps comparing it to doeskin. And he's been wanting RFID block for awhile. This hit all the high level bullet points.
The only feedback I have is not with the wallet - it is with the order process. I sent this as a gift but failed to mark it as such in the interface - I didn't see a place to do it. As a result, Dad got the invoice and saw how much it cost and chided me for spending that much. I replied that he's worth it and don't worry about it.
So a 'gift' checkbox option might help in future. Then you could send a 'gift receipt' and the price isn't included in the item, sparing me the strange experience of telling my Dad it's OK if I spend a little money on him.
This full-grain leather wallet is probably the best one I've ever owned. The complaints about it being small aren't warranted as this wallet holds as many as 6 cards comfortably, along with plenty of cash notes. Any more cards and almost any other leather wallets tends to get bloated, and you're likely to stretch the leather too much.
Choose this if you want a wallet that's a traditional shape, but smaller and lighter.
Very lightweight. It fits everything I need to carry and nothing more, and feels weightless and comfortable in any pocket. I use it to carry some cash and 3-5 cards. The blue leather is a deep navy color and looks great. There's an internal pocket that you can use for transit and key cards.
I switched to my new wallet as soon as it arrived. I LOVE it. compact yet holds everything I need. I am so happy.
I was using a smaller wallet before this one, and have been wanting to upgrade for some time. The Stratton bifold wallet is perfect! There a couple of loose threads on it (only reason I didn’t give it five stars), but other than that truly excellent quality, craftsmanship and organization. Love it!
WHAT IS THE BEAUTIFUL LEATHER USED IN THE STRATTO?
The leather we’ve chosen for the Stratto bifold wallet is oil tanned leather. Special oils and waxes were applied during the tanning process to give the leather a very soft and supple feel and make it resistant to water and other elements. It is both rugged and soft at the same time and feels really good when held in your hand.
How do you suggest I clean the leather?
Actually, we suggest not doing anything. Part of the beauty of highly distressed leather develops as it gets used over time— with rain or getting bumped around. Leather conditioners will darken and alter the leather, maybe not something you desire. If at some point you want to condition the leather - we suggesting using Mink Oil. This will darken a bit at first - but will keep the leather very nice. You can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with a hair dryer and your hand. Any leather discoloration or marks are straight from the actual hide itself; it's part of the character of the leather. That’s how you know it’s the real thing. Each hide has it own look; it's unique just like you.
What is RFID-block material?
For those concerned about data and their cards being hacked wirelessly, we offer the option to include a layer of RFID-block material between the leather and the lining for added protection.
Will RFID-block material prevent Touch-and-Go cards from reading?
We tested as many variations as possible. In our experience RFID-block material did confuse some machines preventing you from using the Stratto as a touch-and-go wallet.
