My only complaint about my Hobo Lauren wallet is that it won't die, and I need an excuse to buy another one! The double spine design is just superb, a place for all of your things and then-some! I get compliments on it almost every time I pull it out of my purse or carry it as a clutch. That's the magic of this wallet, it's small enough to fit in a compact purse but substantial enough to carry as a clutch. I have the Citron colored patten leather one and I'm having some trouble getting ball point pen ink off of it, so I think I'm going for the vintage leather finish next time. The fabrics used for the liner are delightful as well, all in all a five star product that will stand the test of time!

I purchased the Hobo Lauren in a gorgeous cobalt blue from Zappos a couple of years ago. I loved the design of this wallet, it's functional and holds a lot of items. However, the blue dye started rubbing off about 6 months in. It's always been kept in my purse, so it's been treated gently. Now, the blue dye has rubbed off in areas on both sides, wallet looks terrible. I later heard these brilliant colors can contain lead and can be a hazard to your health. I should have returned it when the blue dye first started to wear off. I called Zappos customer service but to no avail since the 1 year return period had passed. This wallet should have lasted years and it certainly should not have raised health concerns.

I love this wallet. It will last forever. It is worth the price for sure. The cute lining print is an added bonus. It is very cute.

I love this. Halfway between a clutch and a wallet. It keeps me organized for everyday use, and when I need to I can stuff it full with everything (wallet and keys). The distressed look on the leather is wonderful. It has gotten both wet and scratched, but still has the same look it did on the day I received it. Demagnetization of credit cards has not been a problem. I put my credit cards in the middle pocket, where they aren't anywhere near the magnet enclosure.

This is my second Hobo Lauren wallet...it is pretty much the best wallet for anyone who wants to keep everything in one spot without it feeling too bulky...ccs, checkbook, cash, etc. The blue is beautiful but it shows scuff marks like any vintage type leather will. Doesn't bother me but that look may not be for everyone.

I have had this bag in another color for about eight years and loved it. It is the perfect size for all your basic necessities while out...cell phone, money, I.d. and keys. By the end of the eight years though, one of the side pockets began to tear away from the metal frame of the clutch...not surprising though, since I had been jamming it packed with my cell phone for years. Get this bag if you want a chic, simple functional bag. Well worth the money!

A friend gave me this wallet for Christmas a few years ago in the red leather. This is truly the most amazing wallet out there and I don't think I'll ever stray from this wallet! When mine breaks down, I'll definitely buy another. I'm not the type of person to spend this much on a wallet. I won't even spend this much on a purse. But this is absolutely worth the price! Trust me! This wallet can hold everything. Cards, cash, change, receipts, etc. There are so many compartments and storage locations for you to put things. I don't even use all the space! It's also really convenient to slip out of your purse and just carry into a store on its own. I'm sure you can fit your cell phone in one of the pockets (mine is always full of receipts so I don't). My favorite thing is the sleek and horizontal design to the wallet. It's super easy to trade back and forth between my bags and my backpack or laptop bag. It doesn't take up too much space so it fits almost anywhere. Love this wallet!

I love this wallet! I own two, and have given them to two of my girlfriends for their birthdays. There are many things I could say, but overall it is the supple leather, the sturdy clasps, the many places to put my many things, and the fact that it works as a wallet or a clutch.

I love this bag. I love the size, the shape, color and even smell of it. It's of course large enough for all your stuff and chic in a very understated way.

This is my third Hobo wallet I have gotten. The first one I ever had was a Rachel and I love it. I now have two Lauren wallets and like them equally. I received the cobalt Lauren as a gift and was thrilled because my other two Hobos are a caramel and a mogano, both browns. I don't think I could ever go back to any other type of wallet! Hobo makes the best wallets!

I love the quality of Hobo wallets. The leather on this wallet is so soft. I like the design of this wallet, it has plenty of room for many different coupons, cards, etc.

This is hands down the best wallet ever. The leather is so soft, the interior fabric is fun, and the magnet is amazing for throwing receipts in, travel documents, anything. I've had one for 5 years and am buying a replacement as the leather is obviously getting a bit old (some stickers accidentally got on the outside which of course ruins the leather).

Absolutely beautiful! This is my second Hobo Lauren. The first lasted for years! It's great because you can use it as a wallet or stick a lipstick in and use as an evening bag.

I love this wallet! I mainly wanted to comment on the color since most of the previous comments have basically covered the fabulousness of the Lauren. I purchased the Citrus (yellowish color) because I really wanted something different. I was so worried I wouldn't like it, I even checked out all of the comments of the other styles of Hobo wallets, but no one seems to have made remarks about it. Anyway, it is so beautiful! It makes it look so vintage and unique, and I love the interior print/fabric. And, as always, Zappos is truly incredible. Even to a small island in Alaska, they seem to have a way to have my items here within a week (seriously remarkable!) and with free shipping (unbelievable!). Thank you!

Beautiful pumpkin color. Lovely finish, not shiny but not flat either. Holds a ton of stuff. Looks very sleek. I use it as a wallet, but use it as my only bag when I would otherwise use a small bag or wristlet or clutch. I get a lot of compliments. Price was a huge deal.

Love this wallet/clutch! I bought it with some birthday money and have had no "buyer's remorse". I get tons of compliments on it. I really like the magnet in the middle. The color is a little more green than in the picture, but I like it better. Very sturdy and durable.

I saw this purse/wallet in the plain originally but couldn't bring myself to spend the money if I wasn't sure that it would work for me. I am a work at home mother, and sometimes have a diaper bag, sometimes a nice purse and clients. I need something that can be a clutch, or can be a wallet and can hold my phone & keys as well. Then I saw a knock off in vinyl for $13 so I got it. I used it for a couple months until the magnets fell out of their stitched area, got on Zappos and ordered the Lauren in Vintage Embossed leather. It was totally worth the money. The leather is fantastic quality - it may look bulky from the shine in photos, but it's very slim. It looks gorgeous as a clutch, and works very well in my actual purse or the huge diaper bag. It holds all my cards, business cards, my receipts, money, a set of keys, my iPhone, and 6 tablets of Lactaid all quite easily. I have not had any de-magnetizing issues with my cards, but I read about those before I bought Lauren and am pretty careful about it. All in all, another fantastic Hobo International item I expect to get many years use out of! My first Hobo International was a microfiber bag that I bought in 1996 and it's still in great condition despite me using it solidly for 5 years (now it's my travel purse), and I have a large clutch from them. One of my favorite bag companies! Great quality, gorgeous looks, totally useful & practical while remaining stylish. Marvelous!

I love this wallet. It has a place for everything and manages to keep my purse tidy. It is a beautiful color and built solidly. I imagine it will last a very long time, but when it does need to be replaced I will definitely by another hobo wallet.

I have had this little wallet style clutch for a while now and love it! Very high quality workmanship and leather. The design is top notch. I've added more to my favorites, in different colors, for the future. I don't ever want to be without one!

Brands I'd also recommend: Lodis used to make a great CR card wallet with a zippered bill compartment...
