We are huge fans of AUTUM and their sometimes quirky, always awesome, leather goods. So when they come out with something new, we love to bring word to all of you. Yes, their products tend to be on the pricey side, but they are as much works of art as they are usable accessories. Which brings us to their latestRead more
A few weeks ago we were out to dinner with some friends. When the time cam to pay, Laurence reached into his pocket and pulled out his wallet. Without thinking I said, “Where did you learn about the Flipside 2X Wallet?”
To which he replied, “Uhm, I think some guy named Dan reviewed it on Gear Diary a year ago.”
Last year I had a chance to review a FlipSide 2X wallet. (Read the review here.) The wallet is rather unusual. It is hardcased, offers limited storage and is RFID shielded. I love it because it has forced me to keep only a bare minimum of items with me and, after months and months of use it still
I’m a simple leather wallet type of girl. In fact, I’ve had the same worn men’s wallet from Target for several years. But when I’m out at a business meeting, or at a formal event, it’s not the best image when I reach for my wallet and whip out my Target special. So when Oberon offered me the chance toRead more
We reviewed the Flipside 2X wallet last fall. It is an unusual wallet that is made from hard plastic, offers limited storage and has RFID shielding so the evil people trying to steal your information right from your credit cards without even touching them.
What I Like: Keeps you organized; keeps cards in place until you want them;
Twelve South makes some of the nicest accessories around. We reviewed their BookBook iPad case and loved it. (My father-in-law stole it for his iPad and still won’t give it back!) We bought and reviewed their Compass iPad stand and I still use it quite often. Now Twelve South is introducing the BookBook for iPhone and it look awesome.
This takes the idea of the iPhone/Wallet combination to an entirely new level.
Called the “iPhone RETRO MODERN leather wallet sleeve” the antiqued leather case has space for your iPhone 4, some credit card and some cash. It looks neat and is a great way to carry all the stuff you need in a cool looking, retro package. Just don’t

Technology makes our lives easier, less cluttered, and above all just more fun. But in the case of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) , you may be getting your credit card stolen and not even know it. Some current credit cards and passports now sport an RFID chip, which makes payments quicker and easier by only having
Since winning a recent bout with back-pain I’ve begun, at the recommendation of my chiropractor, carrying my wallet in my front pants pocket. It lives in the right side of my trousers while my iPhone lives in the left. That presents a problem when it comes time to place my keys somewhere. I don’t want to put my keys inRead more
For almost a decade I’ve been using a wallet that I purchased from Levenger. The Pocket Briefcase is a large leather folio that allows me to keep credit cards, a license and some cash on one side and a number of the company’s “pocket cards” in the other. It’s a great wallet, and it has served me quite well. Increasingly,Read more
When the press release for the newly released eHolster Front Pocket iPhone Wallet hit my inbox I immediately jumped at the chance to review one. The product seems like it was targeted specifically for me. Several months ago I began experiencing back pain and one of the things my chiropractor suggested was to begin carrying my wallet in my frontRead more
I don’t know about you, but there are times when I forget to bring my wallet or my keys … but I NEVER leave the house without my iPhone. That’s where Sena’s upcoming WalletSlim case for the iPhone 4 could come in handy. The WalletSlim isn’t out yet (it ships soon), but we have a pre-release look at the newRead more
