Review: elegant CF slim wallet - card holder

SKMEI 1299 watch, CF slim wallet and Nitecore TIP

It's an elegant, minimalist wallet - card holder with nice carbon fiber scales. It's convenient to insert the cards because edges are chamfered. Removing them is also easy thanks to the cut out at the oppisite side.  

Pros:
- excellent fit and finish
- elegant design
- convenient use
- dual function clip (money clip or pocket clip)
- very good price

Cons:
- none  

Details:
Dimensions empty (without the clip): 3.38" x 2.16" x 0.315"  (86 x 55 x 8 mm)
Weight empty: 2.26 oz (64 g)

Dimensions with 6 cards (without the clip): 3.38" x 2.16" x 0.51"  (86 x 55 x 13 mm)
Weight with 6 cards: 3.28 oz (93 g)

    1. According to the reviews if you also store your bank notes in that you can call it a chubby wallet. :))

  3. I had the version with the elastic band and used it for about 6 months.
    Overall, I'd say it's an excellent buy for the price if you're into these types of wallets.
    I liked how small it was but after a while, I got tired of having to push all the cards just to have to remove one, and found trying to access any card other than the 2 outside one to be a bit of a PITA (I was using it with 5 cards).

    A few months back, I got the Teng&co Tyni wallet on sale for $25 (+$10 shipping to Canada) and I've been very happy with it.
    A bit wider and longer, but much thinner, lighter, more elegant, and fits my needs fine with 5 cards and 4 bills (Canadian notes barely fit, Euros won't without sticking out I think)

    1. I think these slim wallets stay slim if you use them only with cards.

    2. which is fine by me since I never carry to many bills.
      another thing I didn't really like with this CF wallet was how I had to fold the bills twice and they stayed on the outside of the wallet.
