i've had and used a surfshorts wallet for a couple years now, and decided to get a patterned wallet. i chose the Big Evans pattern because i was drawn to and love the bright colors, but the black base color will help keep the wallet from fading in color as opposed to an all-color wallet. its been the perfect wallet for me because it is a good balance of being a card wallet, but can easily keep any cash i need at the moment.
since i've got an older wallet and a new one, there are some differences i've noticed. the first thing i noticed is that the key ring is larger than on the older wallet, and and that the ID window seems larger on the new wallet than the older one. another thing i've noticed is that the new wallet can hold as much as my old one (some coupons, about 2-3 dollar bills, and about 8-9 cards); the new wallet seems to be a little smaller with keeping all them compared to the old one, though that might be because my older one has stretched out from use.
overall this is a wallet i would definitely recommend for anyone who's switching from the standard wallet, but is hesitant to go to a card-only wallet.
I own all of them, I got them during the 4th of july sale and I am using the Big Evan one. I thought I would be using one of the hawaiian shirt-esq ones, the floral, flamengo or toucan, but the big evan snuck up on me and I also have a yellow and black one just for my work wallet so I do not use my $ I have set aside for work elsewhere or vice versa. I also have one of the grey ones for a stash wallet. I will be getting more chums products in the near future. Around $ 100 worth as they are worth it and this is one of my all time favorite wallets (the big evan, next to the 3 hawaiian ones..) .
100% satisfied. Really cool little wallet. I’ll probably get more for friends....
I have owned 2 of these and loved them. I bought the one with flamingos for my SiL for her birthday. I work in a school and I live always having my school ID on my key chain that is also an electronic key for the doors.
Kept searching for the compact wallet and finally found one. Great color options and well made.
