Rated 5 out of 5 by alittlered Love this wallet!
I have the matching purse, and decided to give this wallet a try... I'd had the same wallet for about 12 years and it was well beyond time for a new one, but after looking for more than a year I couldn't find one I liked... Until now!
Plenty of room for cash, cards, and checks. Great divisions of space, so I can keep cash for different purposes separated. It's size is small enough to throw in my smaller purses, but I often just grab it on it's own and cary nothing else... especially because there is enough extra room in the wallet to slip in a lipstick, small notebook & pen, etc.
Now, LLBean, I'd love to see it done in a soft, pretty, red leather (and maybe black, too?)... Then I'd buy another and love it even more! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by YoungBagLady Grey is the New Black
This wallet is amazing! It has so much room and compartment in it that it's kind of impossible to not be organized. I can fit a pack of cigarettes in it along with all my cards and cash. The design/print on the interior is gorgeous. It's the largest wallet I've ever had but it's wonderful. the material is the appropriate amount of stiffness and flexibility and it's not cheap looking at all. It's casual and the grey matches my wardrobe perfectly. I also got the matching Wayside cross-body bag to go with it and I LOVE that bag just as much. I didn't get the wallet to always and only carry around in the bag though because the wallet is rather big for a bag of that size.
I highly recommend this wallet and even the cross-body bag to anyone who's style and attire is similar to mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FreezingBeany everyone asks me where I got this from
everytime I get it out to use -- everyone wants me to tell them where it came from and omg - I paid what?
1 star deduction for no rfid blocking but I would still buy it again if more colors were offered. Of course, I had to buy the matching bag.
I'm in love and haven't switched my bag or wallet since I bought it last summer.

Durable and the zippers work very well and I love the zipper pulls. Many slots and pockets also, my cell phone fits in a section with soft felt type material inside. I use this only when I don't want to carry my purse around and it has a wristlet handle too. I am unable to review the color because I bought a color that is no longer available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nepabean Best ever - love it! more wristlet than wallet
When it comes to wallets, I am function over form - I pick up so many that I'm attracted to until I look inside & they're useless. This is both attractive and logically designed.
It is large so know it will not fit jnto small purses - read the measurements. It is more wristlet than wallet. I made a photogrid (with 3 photos) showing off my new seaglass wayside wallet, but nowhere to upload it.
For security, I wish the hardware connecting the strap was beefier.
Perfect blue/green - great color, awesome fabric. I scotchguarded mine, as I do with all fabric accessories. The fabric is forgiving so this will still look great if the edges fray.
I chose the WHITE monogram - glad I did - the platinum (recommended color) would have blended in too much. Lots of zips & slots & pockets. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by riverbirch Great size and organization
This wallet is the perfect size to hold everything and the organization makes it so easy to keep everything in its place. My approx. 3 x 5.5" smartphone fits in the outside zip pocket (not the center phone pocket). Great wrist strap. On the downside, the fabric is too casual for many situations. Please LL Bean, consider making this in a high quality fabric in solid colors, or better yet, in fine leather with upgraded interior materials. I would purchase again at a higher price.

So disappointed, I love everything about this wallet but my passport will not fit without risk of falling out.
Great material, lots of pockets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by osang828 wonderful function but not the inside materials
I ordered both the Wayside crossbody bag then later this Wayside wallet. For both items, the material looked softer in the photos. For the crossbody bag, a softer materiaI would be better but when I received it, I realized that its material was actually firm. So then I was looking forward to receiving this wallet because for a wallet, a more firm material would be better. And it is. However, the nylon lining is quite flimsy, the metal zipper pulls are flimsy which makes the inside zip pulls difficult to grasp. The workmanship is sub par - stitchings are not clean, the fabric edges where they are sewn together do not meet evenly, and the outside edge curves are not evenly sewn. Great function and size wallet but seems haphazardly sewn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrutalWinters Hold's a lot
Received this about a month ago and it is great. This wallet holds a lot of stuff from my cards to my checkbook and an extra key for my car. I could probably get my cell phone in there too but have not tried. I use this as my bag whenever I go to the store and the extra strap is great to have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SiJoh Great functional wristlet!
It is a well designed and high quality wallet.
It has all the features that I was looking for in a wallet.
Roomy credit card slots.
A lot of zippered compartments for loose change or for extra cards.
It can hold my iphone5 and still there's lot of extra space.
It zips around on 3 sides. Now if I go out with kids, I can just take this and be hands free.
Maybe I can also fit in some snack bars in there.
Only negative feedback is it doesn't look attractive.
I got the blue denim finish one. It's an odd finish in that, it doesn't go well with work clothes.
I just wish they made it more attractive in other designs. I just took away one star just because of this.
