Serman Brands RFID Wallet – Blocking Slim Bifold Genuine Leather Thin Minimalist Front Pocket Wallets for Men
This Serman Brands RFID Wallet looks really sleek. In the two months that we’ve used this wallet, we have already had several colleagues and cashiers commenting on the unique look whenever I pull it out during payment. The specific model I chose came in three colours; California Desert, Texas Brown, and Charcoal Black. We have used both the Charcoal Black and Texas Brown.
Side note: There are more colours than listed here, but we believe that those not pictured below have a slight variance in design, which includes having the ID slot on the outside instead of inside the wallet.
On the front, there is a quick-access slot for your most used credit card. On the inside of the front flap are 2 more slots. In the middle is a money clip for your cash. If for some reason you don’t want it, you can slide the money clip right out of your wallet. That said, we like to keep it on just in case I need cash. Plus, it adds stability to the spine of the wallet. On the inner-right side of the wallet is a slot for your ID with a thumb opening in the middle you can use to push your card out. Sometimes, the humidity will make it hard to pull the ID out but this gets better as it stretches with use.
Also on the back is perhaps one of the most unique aspects of this wallet. There is a slot in the back for your cards that you can access with a pull tab. You pull the tab and your cards come right out so that you don’t have to dig your fingers in to reach them. You then push your cards in and the tab gets pushed in with it. It gets the job done. This minimalist wallet really helped my inner hoarder organize so that you only walk around with the cards you need. Serman Brands says that this Serman Brands RFID Wallet will hold 6-8 cards. We were able to carry around 8 comfortably,
This wallet can fit more than 8 cards perfectly but the drawback to that is that as this is a leather wallet, once you stretch out a slot with 2 cards, you’re going to have to always have 2 cards in that slot to prevent them from sliding out. Plan ahead and don’t stretch out slots if you don’t have to. In terms of cash, we usually have a single bill with me, but we’ve also had some notes inside the clip with no issue holding it.
Serman Brands’ wallet comes with an RFID blocker. In today’s world where we carry around cards with chips in them that can be scanned without a swipe, it’s important to make sure that a scammer doesn’t stand next to you on the subway and steal your information without you even knowing it. An RFID blocker will prevent that from happening.
Serman Brands quotes, “Our wallets are equipped with advanced RFID SECURE Technology, a unique metal composite, engineered specifically to block 13.56 MHz or higher RFID signals and protect the valuable information stored on RFID chips from unauthorized scans.”
Every purchase of the wallet comes with a 12-Month Warranty. The policy states: “The SERMAN BRANDS Warranty covers any factory defects as a result from the manufacturing process of the product.”
They aren’t lying about this. Within a week, we noticed some greasiness in my ID slot that other reviewers did not mention. When we emailed SERMAN about it, they responded within the hour that it may be adhesive from manufacturing, and without my even asking, they gave us a tracking number for a replacement wallet. The replacement wallet arrived in a few days and was in perfect condition. They told us to keep the other one too.
One of the only negatives to this wallet is that it stretches out, so if you’re someone who carries around more than 10 cards, be sure that you always carry that same amount. Otherwise, you’ll start dropping cards left and right. As this is a leather wallet, it also tends to collect scratches. Most of these can be buffed out or fade away, but just something to keep in mind.
Also, when looking at alternatives to this wallet, watch out for copycat products. There are several competing brands that sell an identical looking wallet for cheaper. However, I stayed away from those wallets because their reviews were not as good, and you’ll notice that most of their images are poorly photoshopped edits of Serman’s own original product photos.
