Today we’re looking at the Serman Brand 1.0 wallet. This is a nifty little wallet. The price value on this thing is amazing.
It comes in a nice little box that’s recyclable, a cotton pouch to protect it, the packaging provides a good presentation.
In looking at the features, this particular wallet, we have an exterior card slot. This is a finger push-quick access slot. When we open it up and go inside, we obviously have an ID slot on the right side where you can also add another card behind the identification card. In the middle is the money clip which is spring loaded and can be removed if you don’t want to carry cash. Moving over to the left side we have two more card slots here to put additional cards, likely up to 2 per slot.
(if you want to see all the features and how many cards and cash it can hold, please watch the video)
We come again to this outside at the edge of the wallet. Here we have a top-down opening which provides opportunity to place at least another 4-6 cards. This tab in the back is a pull-tab to assist in extracting the cards since using your fingers to get to them is not convenient. Once cards have been pulled out, you can select the card you want, then by pushing the cards back in, it forces the tab strap back into the wallet, leaving only the pull tab visible.
Total cards from the insertion test comes to 11. Now, let’s review the overall wallet. This particular wallet has a 12-month warranty. This color is California Desert. It’s made from top grain leather. That’s a degree below full grain leather. It’s chrome tanned, not veg tanned, which is fine. It’s really just a preference and depends on what you want in your particular wallet.
It does have an excellent build price against value. It’s priced at $23.99. That is a great price for this particular wallet and the features it has. But it is missing a lot of leather because of RFID and the quality of leather. If you can see the black fabric, that would normally be leather, but it’s not, it’s RFID material.
So, you have a trade-off of RFID, which honestly is not a problem anymore, against leather. Regardless, the wallet will still hold up well.
It’s 4 inches by 3 inches by .4 inches. It weighs about 5 ounces. Serman has developed a very nice brand for themselves, and we’ll be reviewing many more of their wallets here in the future. It is a Kickstarter company like most wallet companies are these days and has a Shark Tank investor. The company has versions of their wallets from 2.0 up to 5.0. This is 1.0. We’ll get into the other versions in the future.
Let’s get into the rating. For quality, we’re going to give this a 3. Pricing, a 5 because it’s such a great price to value. Features, we’ll give it a 3, even though it has that pull-tab strap, everything else are standard features. For usability it gets a 3. The perception overall is good, we’ll give it a 4. The overall score of this is 36 out of 50.
