Tips for Choosing the Best Leather Card Wallet
Before you hit checkout with a new leather card wallet, below are some key factors to consider that’ll permit an informed decision. And, you’ll avoid frittering away your hard-earned money on an item that won’t get the job done or succumb to wear and tear after a few short weeks.
Consider each of the items you intend to store in your new wallet. After all, you want to ensure it’ll comfortably fit all your EDC essentials because you wouldn’t want a product that’s too slim to fit your must-haves. And, it should fit perfectly in your pockets. The last thing you need is a slim wallet that’s unpleasantly small that you have to dig it out each time you need it. Or worse, one that sticks out of your pocket, which increases the likelihood of it falling out and getting lost.
2. Capacity and Functionality
You wouldn’t want to waste your cash on an item that can only hold two cards when you need to carry around six during your travels or for everyday use. To avoid resigning yourself to this fate, you’ll need to compare the specific features for each wallet to select the one that perfectly suits your requirements.
3. RFID Protection
In today’s digital era, you may have heard the term ‘RFID’ being thrown around. In a nutshell, it protects the contents of your wallet from electronic pickpockets. An RFID scanner that’s used by unscrupulous people is a beast at unveiling your bank and credit/debit card details when they’re tucked away in your wallet. Therefore, for peace of mind, a myriad of people opts for an RFID wallet, and so should you. If you have your sights set on a leather card wallet that doesn’t provide this level of protection, you can consider buying an RFID shield that you can easily insert in your wallet. This is crucial if you reside in a populous jurisdiction or spend the majority of your time in public settings.
Remember, higher prices don’t always translate to superior quality. So, when deciding on the amount of money to spend on a leather card wallet, factor in the duration that you expect it to last. Additionally, if you prefer switching up your wallet frequently, then you may want to consider a reasonably-priced option to avoid forking out hundreds of dollars every few months.
If you typically plunge your wallet into your pocket every day, then comfort is vital. Therefore, you’ll want to steer clear of bulky options. Sitting down on a bulky wallet can fuel back pain which means you either have to take it out each time you sit which can get tedious or simply deal with the discomfort that can at times be unbearable. Furthermore, you’ll want to refrain from options that are designed from hard leather.
Leather card wallets are a diverse breed of lightweight and svelte holders built to carry only your most important valuables; debit/ credit cards and identification. But, selecting an ideal option boils down to your preference. So, consider the buying factors as you check out our products, and take your pick today!
