Bomber Jacket Flip ID Wallet
Gave this wallet to my son and he says it the best wallet he has ever owned.

Fatal design flaw!
I love the entire line of Bomber Jacket products, and I use several (including the laptop bag, tech traveler, pen wrap and zip folio) on a daily basis.
I don't agree with the other reviews stating that the wallet is too thick. I purchased this wallet after using the Moneybiz Clip wallet for many years and don't find that it feels any thicker in my pocket. I find that it closes nicely and feels comfortable to sit on. I have heard it compared to George Costanza's wallet, but I carry approximately 15 cards and accept that there is no way to avoid the thickness.
The quality of the leather, styling, and craftsmanship are excellent on all of the products, but this wallet has a fatal design flaw - It has caused may of my cards to split in half along the length of the magnetic strip. This is a result of how the cards slightly overlap; when the wallet is closed the top 1/2" of each card is unsupported (see photo of broken card) from behind and this causes the card to crack (see photo of overlapping cards). It would make much more sense (and wouldn't cause the wallet to be any thicker) if the cards stacked flat instead of overlapping.
It took around 4 months for the first one to split, and 4 others have split in the 6 months since then. Replacing a bank or credit card is easy, but loyalty club cards can be a pain as a new card requires you to either transfer your points or start a new account.

Very solid purchase
Very good quality. Holds a lot, maybe too much. Makes for a fat wallet when all credit cards are included. I'm happy with it.

Looks Great, Too Fat
After 20+ years, I finally had to replace my old Levenger wallet. It was still usable, but some of the stress points were starting to tear. I wanted another one just like it, and this was the closest I could find. Very nice leather and high quality, but it is too thick, even with stuff from my old Levenger removed. I would prefer it without the middle part, but don't want to mutilate it. I'm hoping that if i wear it for a while, it will compress.

Excellent item as it is well made.

The quality of leather is beautiful. It has a very nice feel to it. It holds all of what I want. It is a bit "fat" when filled, but that's because I put a lot of cards in it. If I had fewer to carry, I'd have gotten a slimmer wallet.
Additionally, the card slots are slightly roomier than other wallets, making retrieving the cards easier.

Pretty, but too thick
Bought this for my husband. This wallet has nice leather and is well constructed, but it is just too thick for use in a pants pocket. I was misled by the words "slim profile." Even after weeding out all my husband's cards, etc., this is still a fat wallet. He's tried it for five months, but we're now looking for another to replace it.

I contemplated this purchases for a while. I had read the previous comments and was a little hesitant. I took a chance when it was on sale, and was rewarded. Like other reviews, this wallet is probably thicker that most would like. I carry mine in my front pocket so this isn't an issue. Even with almost all of the card slots full and added pictures, mine stays closed just fine.
If you don't mind the functionality issues previously discussed this is truly an exceptional product, well worth the price.
I do have a recommendation. To address others' concerns about bulkiness you may want to consider eliminating the card slots on the back side of the ID flap and make that the second ID location. This would still give someone 8 card slots.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this product and glad that I took the chance on it.

Exactly what my husband was looking for
It's difficult to find a bifold wallet that can accommodate holding more than 6-8 credit cards. This one fit the bill (no pun intended). My husband is used to a thicker wallet so he hasn't complained about the size. His requirements are - bifold, I.D. Holder, and long lasting quality. Wallets with these specifications are few and far between. I was thrilled to find Levenger carried this design and hope they'll continue offering it in the future.
Only con: the plaid lining is a bit preppy for my husband and may date the wallet in a few years.
