Rated 5 out of 5 holy perfect!
I smiled the second I opened it. keep an eye on the size dimensions: I actually ordered the field canvas wallet first. I was going from a small money clip of 8 years, so a jump to a bigger wallet was made in hesitation. this waxed canvas wallet is actually a quarter inch smaller in height and length than the field wallet.
the leather on this one was different than the field wallet. more broken in, it seems. the pictures don't lie. the leather is softer with this one than the slightly more stiff field wallet. it's a nice 'scaley' leather, like a soft basketball leather if you can picture that.
just a heads up that the leather llbean patch on the outside is only on one side. the back is just canvas all the way to the edge (same with the field canvas wallet).
on the snugness of the card slots: yeah they're snug, but llbean wallets are life wallets. they know what they're doing. it's leather... it's only going to get more suited to the way you like it as years go by. bean wouldn't sell a wallet that cards didn't fit into... c'mon.
overall: the quality is apparent immediately. I'm a back pocket guy, and I was afraid of a big solid block back there, but this size is perfect, and it's so cushiony and light. that quarter inch really did make a difference. beyond happy with this one.

I was looking for a wallet that was a great quality and at an affordable price. While visiting Maine we looked at several locations and could not find even a wallet until we reached L.L. Bean store in Freeport and found just the one I wanted. Fits great in my pocket and has all the compartments that I needed.

Great wallet for a great price. Cards fit fine, snug enough to hold them in place.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Joe2372 Nice Wallet EXCEPT the Card Slots are Useless
This is a great wallet if you don't have any credit cards, store loyalty cards, etc. Unfortunately, I do carry cards and the slots are just small enough where the cards won't fit. I noted the reviews before I purchased and some indicated the slots were too small while others stated no problem. I tried multiple cards and found none fit. As others stated, if the slots could be enlarged approximately 1/8" the problem would resolve. Otherwise, the wallet appeared of good quality and a nice color. It was thin and seemed large enough to do the job without being overly bulky. Normally i try to make an item work especially when I am facing a $6.50 hit on the return on a $29 item. However, I had to send this back due to the slot issue. For me, this is "failure criteria". Should they remedy that one issue I would gladly purchase again.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Huntemup Well laid out design. Solidly constructed.
Using the guide wallet for about a month now so it is still breaking in but definitely doing the job.

Rated 4 out of 5áby dragonfly29 smart wallet
This wallet is useful when you don't want to bring a very good leather wallet for the day. It is handy when you go to the gym to workout or a swimming pool. It is usefully and smart when you need to bring just the essentials for the day. Your license, and a credit card & just enough money.
The two toned tan color is nice. It would be good to have more colors offered.

This wallet is light and easy to carry, holds enough cash/cards to fulfill needs and looks cool. A great item for the summer which is why I bought it. I've been using it this summer after purchase and it has held up well and when I carry it in my back pocket it does not feel like I have a weight in my pocket.

It is to small and to thick. Might work for kids but not adults.
I only chose it because I had a gift card for $25. I'd like to send it back. I tried using it for one day and went back to my old wallet.
