    A few years ago (I don’t remember the exact year), I was on the market for a new wallet. I’d read many good things about Saddleback Leather and ordered their Medium Bi-Fold wallet.

    It quickly became a favorite and aged wonderfully like leather does from its original “tobacco” finish to something seasoned and well-used. Unfortunately, part of the lining began to give way, even exposing part of the wallet’s RFID foil lining.

    I emailed Saddleback’s Customer Service Department and explained the situation and included pics. To me, the break had happened at a high-stress area of the wallet and would perhaps warrant a repair at a small charge.

    “How about a new wallet?” was Saddleback’s emailed response the same day. They’ve discontinued the Medium Bi-Fold but offered to ship me the nearest equivalent, their Medium ID Wallet in tobacco coloration at no charge.

    Apparently, I’d forgotten about Saddleback’s 100-year warranty!

    I’m enjoying the new wallet as well as a few other items I’ve ordered from Saddleback over time. Good stuff!

    The damage to the first wallet shown below, then old over new in two shots below that.

    Thank you, and I almost asked them about the Front Pocket Wallet, as I carry this one (and its predecessors) in my front pocket almost always. I’ve recently cut way back on how many cards and other things I pack into my wallet - that has helped a lot. This Bi-Fold is still compact enough to work for me there.

    After wanting one a good while, I just ordered a briefcase (their slim laptop case) last week - it arrived Friday. I’m blown-away by this thing. I’ve got it all set up to go to work Monday - meanwhile, it’s been imparting that great leather scent through the home office / study!

    I ordered some Chamberlain’s Leather Milk, also, their No. 3 Water Protectant. I walk a fair distance across an open parking lot every workday and invariably it’s raining a few of those trips. Treated the new bag and my wife’s briefcase as well as our Saddleback iPad cover.

    Ugh, I know! I got an email from them about that case when they came out and I think they were almost immediately sold-out! I was preparing to upgrade to the X just to get this case haha!

    Thanks, for helping me spend my money.

    Didn't know I needed the four things in the shopping cart. And I'm not done.
