T.H.E. Wallet J.R.

Back in 2006, while I was in Iraq, I purchased a Spec Ops Brand THE Wallet JR.  I’ve been using it ever since.  This weekend, one of the zipper pulls broke off.  I had forgotten it had zippers.

Over the years I have owned a variety of S.O.B. gear.  It has always been well made, but a little on the large and clunky side.  Their X4 and X6 pouches are excellent utility pouches.  Their lone downside is a fringe around the outside making it hard to put another pouch directly next to it.  S.O.B.’s belts, vest, chest rig, and other products are all excellent.

This wallet is no exception.  Tons of pockets, slots, and places to stick things.  The main compartment is sized for US Dollars and has a zippered pocket.  It has a windowed pocket on the outside and inside of the wallet.  4 credit card slots that can hold multiple cards.  I also stick cards in the folds of fabric for those slots.  And an additional zippered credit card sized pocket on the inside.  The main feature of this wallet is its “shark-bite” closure, which is a sort of rigid flap that holds the wallet close.  Easily opened and closed.

The only downside to this simple, heavy duty wallet it its thickness.  The “shark bite” flap makes the wallet thicker on top of the thick nylon and cordura fabric.  Once you stick a few hundred dollars in the wallet it becomes quite plump.

This is probably not the right wallet for most people, but I love the one I have.
