I ordered this for my husband. He likes a bright colored wallet (I got him the yellow) because in the past his wallet has fallen out of his pocket when he forgot to take it out while he was driving the tractor, and he wanted something that would be easy to spot if it happened again. Nicely made, just wish it had more slots for cards, etc. instead of the change pouch. Only time will tell if it holds up better than the cheap nylon velcro wallet this new wallet is replacing.
Great wallet... except for the zipper
By Jim Pappas, Portland, OR, April 28, 2011
First off... I really do love my new rigger wallet. It is sturdy, durable and not just a "run-of-the mill" product. It has the same quality as every other Red Oxx product that I own (plenty).
I have one complaint... and that is of the zipper. It is too large and thick, and adds a significant "bump" to the thin profile of the wallet. My plan is to cut the zipper out with an exacto-knife... and then buy a replacement if Red Oxx ever redesigns it without the unnecessary (for me) zippered pocket.

nice and slim wallet with good craftsmanship.
I don't use it on a daily basis. I only use this during traveling and camping. and so far, it has been durable.
I would love to see a small handle to be added to the wallet, so I can link my short pickpocket safe chain to the handle or a small climbing hook.
RED OXX keep up the good work. seems like you are the only American made product that's durable and awesome!

The wallet is ok. A bit larger than I wanted, but still practical. Workmanship appears to be good, but will see how it holds up over time. I opted out of emails, but still received a request for a product review so Red Oxx loses a star. Though not a big deal, I prefer not to get this stuff.

Quality construction and MADE IN AMERICA
By Scott Vance, Austin, TX, March 24, 2011
I've carried a surfer-style tri-fold nylon wallet for years, and have worn out three of them. These days a good one is nearly impossible to find in the stores, so I've been carrying a cheapo that wore out quickly. Then I found the Red Oxx Rigger Wallet and it is exactly what I wanted. Even comes in my favorite color for a wallet - Red. It is a little larger than ones I've had in the past but the extra room in the bill compartment is handy. I like the wallet very much with the exception of one feature. Others have spoken favorably about the zippered compartment, and while I like the idea of it, I found the zipper pull handle too large to sit on comfortably. I immediately snipped the zipper pull handle off with some cutters, and I'm perfectly happy with the result. An option to have a velcro sealed compartment instead of zippered might be nice.

This wallet is just what I expected. It is made to last and has the slim size to it that allows me to place it in my front pocket. Please consider making phone holders for work to hold larger Nextel type phones along with mini flashlights. That type of product would be great for the techs. of the world. Thanks!

Received the wallet in June, and it is still holding up well. It is configured very nicely and is easy to adapt to. The center card pocket does get overstuffed, the zipper opening is just a hair to small to put credit cards into, and the Yellow color is very nice but dirties easily. I wash it with an old toothbrush, then Scotch Guard it to prevent smells.
This review is from my second order of a wallet, the "Mariner" color is very bold. Nice looking. The stitching and workmanship is equal to mine.
Well designed, but fabric retains odors
By Anonymous, , October 17, 2010
This wallet is very well designed and fits all my needs perfectly (very large bill compartment, zippered compartment for change). It also seems to be very durable; I've used it for 6 months and it barely shows signs of wear. The one downside of the wallet is that the fabric tends to retain odor. I carry the wallet during many outdoor activities (hiking, biking, ...). The wallet was greak for about 3 months, but now I find I have to wash it about once a week or there is a noticeable odor. The odor now seems to return very quickly even after washing.

I wud like the dollar note compartment to have a zip cos in our part of the world you'd not want to flash your notes.

I have had this wallet for a few weeks now and I like it quite a bit. I am considering a few bags from Red Oxx and needed a new wallet so I figured I would see how they were with something small first. It took about a week to receive from the time I ordered which is pretty normal. The stitching and construction of the wallet seem well above average which is good because I tend to beat on things like this that I use every day. The one complaint I have is I have 4 cards that I put in the first inside card slot and I have noticed that these cards sometimes start to slip out a bit when the wallet is Velcro-ed shut. I haven't lost anything yet and it is just something I look out for now. Otherwise I hope to have this wallet for a long time.

Wished I bought it BEFORE my overseas trip. Just received the wallet and it is not as beefy as I thought it would be, but that is a good thing. Much leaner than I thought. It is a minimalist wallet, and the reason I give it a four now is more because I have to adjust to it than any obvious fault. I hope to keep it thin, and the lack of card slots will help. It does look rugged, and although I question the velcro, I have faith in whoever designs the stuff at Red Oxx to have fore-thought something I had not.

Great wallet.. really good quality. Only defect I see is stitching for 'RED*OXX' embroidery starts to unravel a bit. Not a big deal but something Red Oxx should look at. Wallet has a good quality feel. Glad I purchased it. Also glad it is made in USA/N. America

I travel back and forth between Canada and the US frequently, and I was so pleased with the first, I bought a second in another color, one for each currency and gave away the two bulky, heavy leather wallets they replaced. I keep them in a purse back to back and unfolded, and the larger than average height makes a good divider and them easier to find. I know if I need to, I can fold them and carry them in my travel vest.

I ordered the wallet as my first purchase from Red Oxx. I had tried several other wallets over the last 2 years and was not happy with any of them -- but the Riggers Wallet is different. The currency section is wide and deep allowing you easy access to standard American money but also gives room for larger foreign currencies while traveling. I use the zippered coin compartment for a spare key and another item men always carry in their wallets. The remaining compartments (3 of them) are used for my ID and credit cards -- I divided my cards in to categories and use one pocket for each type -- license and automobile related into the window pocket, store cards and credit cards into the middle pocket, and work related ID and insurance cards into the hidden rear middle pocket. The material is durable without being stiff and so far (2 months) is wearing well. The Velcro keeps everything sealed inside which I like as I am admittedly a little anal about loosing stuff out of my wallet. I carry it in my left front pocket and it fits nicely without being bulgy. I ordered the Safari colors but your only get the green color on the wallet unlike the multi-colors on the other items ordered in Safari colors. This may become my favorite wallet.

Bought the wallet in early 2010, and four months later, it has handled dirt and rubbing against some metal parts in my shoulder bag quite nicely. The yellow color is holding up well, and the material is extremely tough, with no wear marks. Velcro flaps work flawlessly. Having the yellow color makes it easy to locate at night-time, and in poorly illuminated areas.

I wanted a nylon billfold that was somewhat like the tri-fold "surfer wallet" I had over twenty years ago -- I wasn't a surfer, but was outdoors a lot, getting wet, sweating, etc. But that "old one" I still have it, thirty years later -- lacked on item that I want today, which is a zipper pocket in which to keep a spare car key.
This product has even better nylon than the old one, and a zipper pocket to boot. Very high quality product, which I imagine will last for another generation.
Good stuff! If it's the style of wallet you're looking for, you can't go wrong. Congratulations to RedOxx.
By Logan, Seattle, February 11, 2010
Like all Redoxx products, this was very well made and will last a long time. The only two problems I've found are that it is too long and it has too few pockets for cards. I will continue to accumulate products from Redoxx. Thanks guys.

I had never heard of Red Oxx until I started searching the web for USA made products. I lost my previous job of 15 years in the textile industry when our plant was closed due to cheaper labor elsewhere, so I only buy US made textile products. This is a great quality wallet. It is also very slim, so it is not hard on the backside. This is only my second Red Oxx product(cell phone case flip), but I can assure you I will be back for more. I applaud you guys for keeping your business here in the States, and I look forward to purchasing many more Red Oxx products.
I owe you guys an Apology

My first review of the wallet was that I did not like the quality. I actually stopped using it and returned to a leather wallet. However, for some reason I picked it up again 6 months ago, and use it constantly. Why?
It has deep note pockets, it's flat, it's robust, it's secure. It does everything I ask of a wallet. I didn't give it a chance last time. Once you use these products you understand exactly how good they are. Redoxx, keep doing what you do!!
