Distil Union Wally Wallet Case for iPhone 6 Cowboy Brown Review


I hate carrying my phone, wallet and keys around. Distil Union makes life a little easier by combining the wallet and phone case into one. I have seen other iPhone 6 wallet cases, but they end up being too bulky to be useful. Distil Union has done an excellent job of slimming down the wallet case for iPhone 6.


Distil Union takes a snap-on hard case and then adds an integrated wallet to the back of the case. The wallet is so slim that it just looks like like a snap on case with a genuine leather back. The red pull tab opens to reveal hidden cash and cards. The case solves the problem of having too much things in your pockets.


Overall I believe the Distil Union Wally Wallet Case for iPhone 6 Cowboy Brown best implementation of a wallet to a iPhone 6 case. I can leave my bulky wallet behind and carry this sleek and minimalist wallet and iPhone case in one. The Distil Union Wally Wallet Case for iPhone 6 is truly one of the best iPhone 6 cases that I have ever owned.

Distil Union Wally Bifold leather wallet Cowboy Brown Review



I have reviewed quite a few wallets and always looking for something new. Distil Union blends the best of a bifold with a money clip. The wallet is smartly designed with easy access to your cash and cards. The Super-slim leather billfold wallet is a front pocket wallet that mixes the best of style, form and function.



The Distil Union Wally Bifold comes in Cowboy Brown and Ninja Black color at $59.99 price. The wallet is full grain leather and the stitching is well made. The wallet has two pull tabs that pull out the credit cards or ID cards. The front pull tab is red that nicely contrast with the brown leather. The back pull tab is brown that blends in with the Cowboy brown leather. The interior has a metal money clip that can carry all your cash.



The slim size is a major plus for me as my previously wallet was a George Constanza worthy fat wallet that would bulge out of my front pocket. The Wally Bifold is perfect size to carry safely in the front pocket. The easy access of your cards and cash makes this wallet worth buying. I normally fumbled with my wallet trying to get out cards to show ID.


The Wally Bifold is a practical wallet that is slim, minimal and functional. The Wally Bifold solves a problem of getting cards out of wallet. The pull tabs and money clip makes this wallet smarter than the average wallet. I highly recommend you check out this wallet if you want a convenient and thin wallet.

Orox Leather Co. Classic Bifold – Natural Review


The wallet is an accessory that pretty much every guy wears daily. The difference between a mall wallet and an Orox is the level of craftsmanship and leather. Orox Leather Co. uses top quality Chromexcel leather from Chicago, IL. The leather is made to last a lifetime and will get years of enjoyment out of.



The Orox Leather Co. Classic Bifold is relatively slim, rugged, and hand-stitched. This is a wallet that will last many years and will look better with age. The wallet keeps it basic with 4 card slots and 1 billfold for your cash.





The Classic Bifold is made to look worn and broken in. You will find some minor scratches in the leather, uneven stitching and cut edges. This adds to the appeal of the wallet as you know this is handmade wallet.


Orox Leather Co. makes only the best leather products and the Classic Bifold is the perfect every day carry wallet for any guy. The 100% Chromexcel leather is top quality as well as the handmade craftsmanship that takes place in Portland, Oregon. I highly recommend you take a look at the Orox Leather Co. Classic Bifold as it’s one of the best wallets I have reviewed.

Waxhaws Leather Co. Billfold Wallet full grain vegetable-tanned English Bridle Leather Review




A great wallet can last a lifetime, that is if it’s made with top quality leather and excellent craftsmanship. Waxhaws Leather Co. makes a great billfold wallet that is backed by a lifetime or 100 year warranty. Not many companies back their products like Waxhaws does.




Waxhaws Leather Co. Billfold wallet is made of the finest full grain vegetable-tanned English Bridle leather from Italy. The wallet is handmade and of the highest quality. The leather will get better with age with a nice patina. With a 100 year warranty this maybe the last wallet you need to buy. On sale for $68, the Waxhaws Leather Co. Billfold wallet is well worth the investment.




I have owned many wallets from store bought to high end. Most of the wallets are made of Genuine leather that eventually breaks apart. This is why I end up buying a new wallet every two years. The Waxhaws wallet is made of full grain leather that will last a lifetime and is back by that warranty. The wallet is medium sized so it can fit 6 credit cards, ID card, bills and rewards cards.



Waxhaws billfold wallet is a top notch wallet that will age beautifully. After owning so many poor quality wallets in the past, I am glad to find one that is made to last. I highly recommend this wallet for anyone looking for a bifold wallet that lasts a long time and looks good.

Saddleback Leather Company Wallet Bi-fold Medium Carbon Black Review


I am always on the look out for a good wallet. Saddleback was nice enough to send me their Wallet Bi-fold Medium Carbon Black for review. I have reviewed quite a few wallets ranging from $10 to $160. And I was pleasantly surprised by Saddleback’s offering when it came in the mail.


Saddleback Leather Company is known for their leather bags, satchels, and other leather products. The Wallet Bi-fold Medium Carbon Black was my first product I reviewed from the company and I was looking forward to reviewing their products. The Bi-fold wallet is no flash but all substance. The quality of leather is the best I’ve seen in any wallet I reviewed. The wallet comes in Carbon Black, Chestnut, Dark Coffee Brown, and Tobacco Brown.


This wallet isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking for a slim, multi colored wallet with a cool design then you’re looking in the wrong place. But this wallet is built to lasts for a very long time. Anyone who bought an expensive leather wallet only to have it look raggedy in a years use would appreciate this rugged wallet. This is not made of some smooth leather, rather full grain leather which is built to last.


The wallet has 6 slots for credit cards, business cards, and ID. It also has 2 interior slots along with a large slot for your cash. I chose Carbon black and the stitching is also in black. The front side is branded with Saddleback Leather on it. The wallet is a bit on the thick side but slides nicely into a back pocket.



Before Saddleback Bi-Fold wallet I thought all wallets were the same quality. But that has change the first time I touched their wallet. It’s better than $100 wallets I reviewed from other companies. And that it only costs $45 for this quality of wallet makes it worth every penny. This would make a perfect gift for any guy who wants a wallet built to last back with a 100 year warranty against defects.
