I ordered this wallet because I had to downsize to a smaller purse. It is streamlined and perfect for a small bag. I love it.

I like the color and compactness, coin section and plenty of room for cards, but the little magnetic thing, that is supposed to hold the cards down, doesn't stick. It is always flying around and gets in the way. It seems to me to be useless. Therefore fewer stars as I will likely return it.

This was a gift for my mother and she truly enjoys it. The Metro Slide has pockets on both sides and zipper for your dollar bills. It snaps shut which keeps the cards secure. I'll wait and see if the snap makes a dent on the card. Otherwise like this product very much.

Nice wallet, very convenient for accessing cards. Only downfall is that zippered part is not large enough to hold bills without folding them.

I love this item for holding my driver's license and credit cards. I don't use the zip pocket much for anything...as others have stated, it's not very handy for storing receipts or currency. The only disappointment is that I've had the metro slide for only 3 months, and it's already showing wear on the corners. I have it in the Sunflower (yellow) color, so maybe it shows more in that color than it would with a darker color. The yellow has worn away to show gray underneath.

Disappointing. I used this little card/ wallet a few times and when I had to remove my driver's license from the plastic slot, the stitching ripped open. Ruined. I wouldn't buy this ever again!

I keep credit and store cards that are used infrequently in the Metro slide. It is easy to grab and toss in my handbag and it does not take up a lot of room.

Excellent addition to purse management. The Slide allows me to carry all my cards without bulking up my wallet.

I had a men's card holder that got stretched out but I didn't want to bring around my big checkbook wallet everywhere. This is a perfect medium. It holds all of my important information and has enough stretch that the buttons still snap down when there is cash in the pocket (I tried with 10 bills in it). Good buy for traveling light!

This is a great wallet. It's perfect if you like to keep a few dollar bills around but rely mostly on cards. It's great to change from bag to bag quickly and easily. The bordeaux color is gorgeous!

Beautiful and functional! Nice, lightweight, thin and easily transfers from work bag to small handbag. Love the bar straps to keep cards in place. I keep cash and coins in the zipper pocket. Love the clear pocket to keep my transit card.

I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it online, & finally bought it once Hobo had a promotion on them. I really love the wallet, and haven't had any issues with it so far. The magnet sticks well & hasn't come undone yet. the only cards that were a bit challenging to insert & remove were the ones at the very top slots, so I just put business cards that I rarely access in those slots. I think that if I had all 10 slots occupied with a regular credit card, then the zippered part would be too difficult to access. So, I may not recommend it for somebody with lots of credit cards that they access often, but since I just have a few that I use regularly, this is a perfect fit. I was a bit concerned about not being able to put money in it without folding it, but I finally said to myself "who are you kidding? You never have your cash all neatly organized in any wallet & you always have to take all bills out if you want to know how much cash you have anyway!" I decided I'd be fine with folding my cash in half before putting it in the wallet. I can't even tell you how much more room I have in my purse! Whoever thought of making a wallet that doesn't have to be opened & closed to access your cards is a genius!

Brands I'd also recommend: I tried & couldn't find anything like this anywhere!

Love it! I bought this when I purchased a smaller Hobo purse from eBay, which forces me to carry less to work (and spare myself some shoulder pain). My Sadie wallet no longer fit along with my glasses, keys, iPhone, etc, so I decided to downsize my wallet, too. It's fabulous. The red is easier to see in my purse than my black Sadie wallet, it holds everything I need, and it forces me to get rid of receipts and other stuff I don't really need but would normally carry around in my wallet for months. Since it doesn't have space for change, I still carry the change purse from my Sadie wallet. Highly recommended to make life a little bit simpler!

I received one of these as a gift 8 years ago - it is fantastic. It is only now starting to show a little wear around the card slot I use most often. So, I am buying a new one.

In person, I didn't like the color. It seemed sort of cheap or fake. It looks really functional, but I didn't find the leather attractive.

Very stiff. Tough to fit all of my cards in and it is an enormous challenge to remove them once their in. The snap never stays snapped. Hopefully though, because it is leather, it will soften with time.

I do not understand how anyone can use this as a wallet. First of all, the card slots at the very top are not deep enough, so the straps do not allow a card to be placed in this topmost slot - you have to leave them empty in order for the straps to fasten, which is ridiculous. Also, there is no way paper bills/money can go in the zipper compartment. They definitely cannot go in stacked and flat - the pocket is smaller than paper money. They cannot go in folded, because one way the folded money is too tall and the other way, it's still tall enough so that the zipper catches the edges of the money in the zipper track and it's a pain. If you fold the money again, it's a thick wad that renders the wallet all out of shape. This is the most ill-designed thing I've ever seen for money/cards. It's going back.
