I have shared my travel experience through this blog but due to audience demand, I will start sharing the products and tools I use to make my travel easy. Today I am sharing my favorite wallet. The wallet, which I have been using for years was ripped off last week. Therefore, my search for a new wallet was on. This time I wanted to add a leather wallet in my travel essentials. Although I wanted a leather wallet, I also want it to look a little bit stylish. I checked lots of wallets online. As you know there are numerous designs and colors available in the market depends on how much you spend? I didn’t want to bust my budget because most of my funds go towards travel expenses. Therefore, I try to keep my miscellaneous expenses low. First of all, I decided how much I want to spend on a wallet? My budget was a maximum of $20 and not even penny more than that. The struggle was finding a perfect leather wallet for women who love to travel.
I will explain step by step how this wallet is perfect because I had a list of requirements to get fulfilled.
My requirements for a wallet
1. Must have RFID protection
We all know as technology gets advance our thieves are also getting smarter. They don’t snatch your purse and run like old times unless you are in Paris. Now they use technology to steal money from your cards, to prevent this I always use RFID protected wallet. If you are not using such kind of wallet, then I will advise you when you purchase your wallet next time please look for RFID protected wallet.
2. Leather material and should look classy
This wallet is made up of genuine leather and finished with wax so it gives a little glossy look from the surface. One thing which really likes is that it has double stitching which makes it sturdy. Also, the edges are nice and smooth. Even the texture of the wallet is soft.
3. Store at least 5 cards
For me, the minimum five card slots in a wallet were necessary which includes my ID, Debit/credit card as well as an insurance card. This wallet has 9 card slots plus one removable card sleeve which has three slots. Besides the card slots, it has a separate compartment for cash as well. Ultimately nailed this requirement.
4. Separate pocket for coins
During my last trip, I dropped my wallet by mistake and coins were everywhere on the floor. I must admit it was embarrassing. The lesson learned to keep the coins locked. One of the reasons I choose this wallet due to its coin pocket.
5. It should fit in a crossbody bag which I use for traveling
Obviously, it depends on what kind of trip it is but I like to carry my bag everywhere. If I go hiking I prefer to carry a backpack, which allows me to carry all the hiking essentials. It is difficult to carry my wallet in a crossbody bag. Hence, I wanted something with a compact size. This wallet is thin and compact. They also have some awesome color options to match everyone’s style, but I like to go with a classic black color.
