Very good quality for a great price.
Switched from the ridge to this and am very pleased. Compact and no fabric to get pilly. The business card cover is great for storing/hiding my license and those frequent customer stamp cards for quick access.
Phone mount review
The packaging was taped over some of the double sided tape which made that strip of double sided tape unsticky but I get the idea and that’s probably not every package. Still a cool idea and my wallet never came off.
Just know this counts as a card slot. Over all experience was good. This matte black card cover gives you a ‘closed and complete’ look to your wallet. I ordered the 6 card wallet but I could easily fit 8 cards in it. 9 if you count the card cover
XSTO AirTag Ready Wallet Rhino Gray Black Edition with Upgrades 8 Cards
With the advent of digital cards the need for physical cards is rapidly diminishing, yet as a self-identified wallet aficionado I found myself ordering this wallet in January 2023. As a gadget man the wallet appealed to me and the fact that it offered room for an AirTag made this an almost compelling purchase. The upgrades on offer were, from my perspective “mandatory” as, when you spend this kind of money, you may as well go all the way. I received the wallet within a reasonable time frame given I live in Australia. The wallet was nicely packed yet even the packaging reflected the minimalist nature of the product. I was “up and away” in no time but found that despite the “digital cards” comment at the beginning of my review, I should in fact have ordered the 10 card version. Now, as the prompt for this review says, “How was your overall experience using the item?”. That’s a tricky question. The cards are held securely as is the AirTag. Two additional cards for which there was no room, are held in the business card compartment. I don’t carry cash so I don’t have any banknotes in the wallet. Have I actually used the item? Well, as a storage container, yes but on no occasion have I actually had reason to retrieve any of the cards. Yet, I still find myself contemplating the purchase of the 10 card version. Why? The wallet itself, the product, solid, American made, with the features it offers, you can never have just one (apologies to the "company focused on building the last wallet you’ll ever need”). I’m impressed, so there you go….Why only 4 stars? There’s no (option for) RFID-blocking technology. Buy one…now!
I also use the phone mount, AND I inserted a steel plate under the business card holder so I can attach it (while attached to my phone) to my magnetic phone mount in my car. This also solves the problem I had of wanting to have the steel plate attached to my phone but not being able to use my wireless charger around the house if I did. This way, the steel plate stays in the wallet, and when I leave the house I attach the wallet to my phone and voila! Attach the whole thing to the phone mount in the car. Time will tell how often I attach it to my phone, but having the option, and knowing it won't scrape against my phone and scratch or get scratched if I put them in the same pocket while attached, really is another level of value I didn't anticipate.
More options for mounting in my car!
I chose the 6-card version of the wallet and I keep 6 cards in the main section, and 3 membership cards in the business card holder on top.

Nice workmanship and gets the job done
My new XSTO wallet with cover plate and carbon fiber spring and card protector is every bit as cool as I’d hoped it would be! Looks great, works great, and I hardly know it’s in my pocket
