EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

HISSIMO wallet proves cheap can be good!

The HISSIMO wallet, front pocket to be exact, is a competent bifold, with all the usual features, but is incredibly inexpensive. Made with the usual amount of RFID material and genuine leather, it's still a great value for the price.

Today we are going to review the HISSIMO front pocket wallet. This is a very inexpensive wallet and the design presentation is okay. It comes in a simple box, but for the low price, it is still a nice box. The wallet is protected in plastic and wrapped in tissue paper. I can smell the chrome tan of this particular wallet. It has a very strong scent.

It is made in China, which is fine, but you can tell it is mass-produced. However, for the price, it has decent sewing and actually has some painted edges, which is not necessarily common. It has RFID blocking which creates the crunchiness from the RFID material. 

Now on to the feature review of the HISSIMO front pocket wallet. There are not any features on the exterior. On the interior, there is an ID slot with a quick thumb push. On the right hand side there are two card slots, as well as a card slot in the back for additional cards. There is a billfold pocket on the interior. This billfold pocket is very standard, but it works and is a very nice, simple, slim front pocket wallet. 

For the card and cash insertion test I was able to get six cards in here and one ID as well as six slips of cash. The company does not make any recommendations. From a quality perspective, this is genuine leather which is the lowest quality of leather. The RFID material makes it crunchy and takes away from the leather and overall quality.

I was not able to find where it is manufactured, so I am going to guess that it was done in Asia due to cost, which is fine. The sewing is really decent and it has painted edges which provides an attention to detail. 

The cost is $10 which is crazy.

It is easy to use. The card insertion/extraction is very easy and it is very nice for a minimalist wallet. 

It measures 4 x 3.1 x 0.3” and weighs 31 grams. It has an 18 month warranty, which is amazing based on the price. The company has a four page website and they primarily sell on Amazon and other third-party sites. But for $10, what do you expect? However, I think you’ll be surprised about how much quality is built into this based around $10.

Now for the final score. For quality of 3, price, a 5. Features a 3, usability a 3 and perception a 2. That gives us a final score of 33 out of 50.
