Love the wallet but bummed about the Rust/Teal color-way

I've been a die-hard surfshorts wallet user for many years now but I'm kind of bummed that the rust/teal color isn't as pictured. The zipper is a peach/salmon color rather than a yellow like the photos suggest. I guess I should've trusted the last reviewer about this. Not sure if it's worth returning since the wallet cost almost as much as the shipping.

Hi there, thank you for your feedback on the Surfshorts Wallet. We apologize for any disappointment with the color of the zipper. Our team is working to improve our product image to accurately reflect the color options. If you would like to discuss a potential return or exchange, please reach out to our customer service team. Thank you for being a loyal Chums customer! We appreciate your support.

Color not as pictured

The new rust/teal color one looks completely different than what’s pictured. The zippers are pinkish salmon color, not yellow. Misleading!

Hi there, thank you for bringing this to our attention. We apologize for any confusion caused by the color difference in our rust/teal Surfshorts Wallet. We will make a note and see where adjustments need to be made on the listing. Thank you for your feedback and support.


I bought my first Chums surfshorts wallet in 2020, when my Fossil wallet was crapping out on me. I wanted something lighter, less bulky, something with a zipper to prevent money or cards from slipping out. Cue the Surfshorts Wallet, which I found by looking up what I wanted on Reddit and heard many great things about Chums. What I DIDN'T know was how great their customer service was!! I unfortunately developed a tiny tear in the corner of the Clear ID window 4 years after my purchase, and I sent Chums an email asking if they could repair it. They informed me that there is a LIFETIME warranty on their products, but they couldn't repair my wallet, they'd just SEND ME A BRAND NEW ONE! Chums let me pick out which of the new colors I wanted, and that was literally all I had to do besides provide my address. Within a few days, they'd sent me a brand new wallet, (specifically the Teal/Rust colorway, which looks even more beautiful in real life than the online pics, as it's more of a burnt orange than the red on the above picture). NOT ONLY did they send me the new wallet I requested, BUT THEY ALSO SENT ME ANOTHER WALLET FOR ABSOLUTELY FREE, a sick Toucan patterned wallet that looks amazing! I also own their soft glasses case that looks like a sleeping bag (the orange color, LOVE IT), and I just finished a trip abroad using that as my sole glasses/sunglasses case, and again, flawless, I was able to carry that thin pouch with me everywhere. Don't even hesitate to buy their products, CHUMS STANDS WITH THEIR PRODUCTS and backs it up with a Lifetime warranty that they actually HONOR, unlike most companies that have a ton of fine print along with their warranty. Most importantly, the Surfshorts wallet is a SICK wallet, thin profile, non bulky, with multiple compartments to hold cash, coins, cards, and even your keys with the built in keyring. The clear ID window is a game changer if you have a Costco membership, by the way, as you no longer need to take your ID out to show them on entry. THANK YOU CHUMS!!!
