First of all, it's beautifully made in gorgeous leather, you can't fault the appearance of it. It feels as if it will last a lifetime and it probably will, and, it matches my phone case. When it arrived I was surprised at how big it is, I'd assumed because it only took folded notes that it would be smaller than it is. I bought it to use instead of another wallet which happens to be smaller than the Snakehive. To be fair, when I mentioned this in an email, they offered my money back, which is good customer service as I'd started to use it, but as I'd bought it and to be fair, I should have looked at the dimensions in the emails they sent me, I decided to keep it. I'm sure this wallet is fine if you regularly wear a suit jacket, or baggy trousers, but it's definitely a tight fit in a jeans pocket, especially the front where I keep my wallet. I used it for a couple of months, but gave up when needing to produce ID I reached for my wallet to find that I no longer had my driving licence card in it. That had been jettisoned because there's only room for four cards. That was it, there's no point in carrying something so large that holds so little. The other gripe is that it's a real hassle folding notes, and the note container gapes, so notes aren't held securely.
Bought as a thank you gift and my mate loves it. Really smart wallet and the colours are suited well to his style.
Have had the phone cases for various phones over the last few years, in fact I had to check that snakehive actually made a case for my new phone before I committed to the contract. They age beautifully ... Thought I would buy my father one of the wallets for Christmas - quality is indistinguishable from the phone case and a beautiful nubuck finish that I am sure will age well too ...
A beautiful wallet, already admired by several friends, with soft dark blue nubuck outside and a smooth tan part lining. The only drawback for me is that there isn't room for banknotes without folding them, nor enough space for all my cards ...I guess I just have too many loyalty cards. Still, it fits nicely into an inside pocket without making an unsightly bulge like my old card-laden wallet.
