“Buy it for life”
These words have been rising in popularity since more and more people have moved toward minimalism. Those of us who think of our wallet as a ready to go type of item have struggled to find great quality wallets. Every store seems to be riddled with designer wallets with cheap leather or loose stitching that seems to keep most of our wallets lives to a maximum of 2 years.
Having a Wallet you can count on that might out-live you is not only going to save you money, but it will put your mind at ease. No longer would your money, credit cards or IDs be susceptible to the wind when that old wallet of yours rips apart. We have put together a sweet list of Wallets that will stand the test of time for you to consider.
SaddleBack Leather Wallets
Backed by a crazy 100 Year Warranty, SaddleBack Leather has been raved about all over the internet. SaddleBack Leather uses full grain leather that is tanned by environmentally friendly tanneries. It is sowed with marine grade polyester thread which is UV and salt water resistent. This type of thread is also found in parachutes.
Pictured above is one of the many available wallets by Saddleback. This one is their best-selling Medium Bi-Fold wallet. It comes with RFID protection, 6 card slots, 2 hidden slots behind them.

The Luxe Designer Wallet uses a money clip system to hold cash so there is less bulk of the actual wallet, which contributes to the slim aspect.
