As a new offering in the Apple AirTag Wallet has come around, the Snapback Slim Wallet tries to deliver the best performance in carrying cards while also including an AirTag.
I obtained the Snapback Slim AirTag wallet from a Kickstarter campaign. It is a very slim cut of leather, available in black or brown, and has some nice burnishing on the edges. Featurewise, it has an AirTag slot centered in the front, with one interior card slot that can fit cards as well as cash folded in thirds or fourths. It measures 3.5 x 2.7 x 0.1”, and weighs 10 grams, an equivalent to 4.4 ounces.
One card would be minimal carry, while a reasonable carry is probably four cards. The company recommends up to six cards and folded bills. But I do know that Nick, the creator, is currently carrying seven cards in his wallet. Nick is the owner and creator of the Slim AirTag and several other wallets, all launched via Kickstarter. Despite other AirTag wallets previously reviewed, this one just brings it to an ultra-slim factor. The Snapback Slim AirTag wallet is very small and very thin, it inserts smoothly into the front or back pocket, with the front pocket being the preferred location. It is designed and made in the United States from full-grain vegetable-tanned Italian leather, and from the way that it was put together, it is machine stitched. It is well reinforced at the top, being visible at the top front and back. It is priced at $55.
The leather, as mentioned at the beginning, seems a little bit thin. I am sure when looking at this you would go “well, geez, that thing will tear”. However, after a discussion with Nick, he explained how they tried several different weights of leather, even a wider version of this wallet to see if they could carry more cards, but over time, about a month or so, everything became too loose. Therefore, regardless of the cut, stretching is going to happen. That is why it is a little thinner and not as wide, but it will work just fine in taking the card’s capacity it was meant for. Moreover, inserting the air tag was pretty easy, and required only a push to slip it in. In addition, since there is a lip between the top and bottom of the AirTag, it helps to keep it secure and in place. You probably may be thinking, “well, geez, will the AirTag easily push out?” For that to happen you would have to put effort into it as it’s engineered with pretty tight tolerances. Additionally, once some cards are inserted, it creates rigidity, keeping it in place.
The final score of the Snapback Slim Wallet is 4 for quality, it has a pretty good leather, and the sewing is nicely done; price scores a 3, it is starting to push that boundary a bit on the price. Features score is a 4 because it is an AirTag capable wallet in such a slim profile; usability scores a 4 thanks to its ease of usage; and perception scores a 3, which gives this wallet a score of 37 out of 50.
