It isn’t often a wallet can provide amazing features and still be thin and functional. That time has come with the Tauruscamp Base Wallet review we see today!
(if you want to see all the features and how many cards and cash it can hold, please watch the video)
The Tauruscamp BaseWallet is an eight-centimeter standard-sized wallet that comes in a leather bag. This wallet, slightly larger than their seven-centimeter wallet, is a better option, because it fits all currencies. It’s made from one piece of leather and comes in an unbelievable 19 colors. The leather is hand-dyed on both sides, with excellent stitching and burnishing/painted edges.
The wallet has no features on the front, but on the back, it has a quick access card slot, which is fantastic as every wallet should have one. An interior cash slot can be seen on the side, with a hidden slot on the opposite side to slide your finger in and push the cash out the other side without needing to open the flap. Once the flap is opened up, an immediate card slot is found in the front, with another in the back that can handle cards, cash and even coins. Coins can fit perfectly because they are trapped via a tight fold at the top. The Tauruscamp Grain wallet review was excellent, so the review of the BaseWallet is a must.
The Tauruscamp BaseWallet measures 4.2 by 3.1 by 0.3”, and weighs 63 grams. Minimalist card insertion is four, reasonable is six, and the company recommends up to eight cards. Moreover, it accommodates 12 slips of cash including all currencies. The weight of the leather is perfect to provide a strong, stable leather experience while still keeping the wallet very thin. The wallet is compact and provides a great experience.
The wallet is priced at $66. Overall, the attractive thing about this wallet is the ability to carry cards, cash, coins, or keys, and still remain slim and relatively small. There is always some kind of compensation that is made at a balance when starting to get into coins and keys and such kind of stuff, but it is not something this wallet gives up. It fits nicely in the pocket, very thin as it goes in, and not a hard sell either in the front or rear pocket. One more thing to point out is the notches in the card slots which provide the ability to use a finger and thumb to more easily grab cards, cash or even coins, which is part of the very clever design process.
The captivating and unique functional designs this company comes up with is amazing. The thought put through all elements to make this a high-functioning wallet is really impressive, and shows the extra effort on the aesthetics as they balanced design and functionality.
The final score of the Tauruscamp BaseWallet is 5 for the quality, it is a full-grain vegetable-tanned dyed on both sides and of excellent construction; 4 for the price, because as prices in the industry have increased, theirs have stayed relatively flat; features scores 4, it is compact able to carry cards, cash, coins, keys, and still maintain this footprint with all those features; usability scores 4, it is easy to use, especially not being required to open up for quick card access and even cash; and perception scores a 4. Tauruscamp wallets have stayed pretty consistent, and so, the wallet scores a final score of 43 out of 50.
