EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

Forrest and Harold brings out the colors, but not capacity…

The Forrest & Harold bifold minimalist wallet is short on capacity, but multi-color options provide a level of style not seen in many wallets, along with a removable money clip.

Today we’re reviewing Forrest & Harold wallet. It’s a slim bi-fold, has a great build to it with fantastic leather.

Today, we’re looking at the Forrest & Harold wallet. Let’s get a look at this and see what we’ve got. It comes in a nice patterned box. It’s nicely embossing. Here’s the wallet itself, it’s protected by a one year purchase protection, which is nice.

Let’s take a look at its features. If we look at this closely, we can see that on the front outside there’s nothing here, except for a money clip. And this money clip has the capability of moving and is removable. If you don’t want to carry cash in your wallet, you don’t have and can remove the clip. If we flip the wallet over, there is one card slot. This slot can hold one or two cards at the most. They say the wallet can hold 4-8 cards.

If we move to the inside of the wallet, if you keep the money clip attached, here is where your cash will be kept, folded over. You have another card slot right under where the clip is and on the other side of the wallet there are two more card slots.

It’s made of top grain leather and has nice sewing. I love the different colors. This is a green and on the inside is an orange color. I love how they have that capability as well as the stitching on here is also in orange. They have many different color combinations of inside and outside. I love that. I think this provides a great characterization of style, being able to have different combinations versus just one color throughout the entire wallet.

It’s $30.00 on Amazon. I think that’s a fair price for this, especially for the construction. It is very minimal by way of what it provides in capabilities, but you can see this is very thin and the thinness of it is something that’s nice. It’s got some length to it as well. It has the eight to ten capabilities for cards, which is less than more wallets, but doable. And the ability to remove this money clip here is a nice touch. This provides you the option of putting it in or not having it at all.

The wallet measures four and a quarter by two and three quarters inches. It’s two ounces, so it’s very light. It’s well built, nice leather. Unlike most wallets, this was crowdfunded. The company vision is to provide a fair priced, high quality product. So at $30.00, I’d say that’s pushing the limit of it, but it’s a good price.

Let’s get into the card capacity test. So they say that this can hold 4 to 8 cards. Let’s see if we can get the full eight. I can see how they say that that’s really kind of pushing it. Now granted, this is leather and so it will stretch. It will take a little while to stretch, but as all leather does stretch and during the break-in period, it’ll be okay. In review we’ve got 2 cards in the outside back. We’ve got 1-2 card in the inside left and 2 cards in each of the 2 slots in the inside right. That’s eight. So that’s their capacity. You can see that after all that, it’s still rathe thin. Look up on this. 

Let’s get into the ratings for the Forrest & Harold bi-fold. This comes in a lovely green and orange. On quality, we’re going to say this is a 4. It’s great leather and that kind of thing. On pricing, it’s 3. It’s really heading toward the upper end of that, but it’s a fair price. And the features I’d say it’s a 3. It doesn’t have a tremendous capacity to it, but it does meet needs. On usability, we’re going to give it a 3 because it is not really easy to pull some of these cards out. And there aren’t very many options, and the capacity is low. You do have good access with the money clip, for cash, but other than that, it’s a pretty basic wallet. I will give it a 4 for perception. It’s built well, nice leather, nice sewing and it has a great presentation. That gives us a final score of 3.5 out of 5 or 35 out of 50.
