Saddleback Leather Makes Great Leather Products

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

I got a great leather wallet from Saddleback Leather last month. After using it for awhile, I’m impressed. It’s a real strong and sturdy piece of art — c’mon, it has a 100 year warranty — and really looks great. Plus, the leather wallet itself is so thin that you almost forget it exists.

I’m a big fan of leather wallets. This one is made with durable quality leather, and that explains the price tag. But it really does deliver. I think, though, that if you need to store your entire life in your wallet, this particular version would be too thin for your tastes. (Those with a money clip in addition would find it just fine, though.) It’s a great wallet for a few credit cards, a picture, and a few bucks, but you can’t really overdo it.

Overall, it’s a nice addition to anyone’s wallet collection, especially if you’re in the market for something that suits this purpose. Check it out when you get a chance. 🙂
