– Elastic material may make extraction of the cards difficult. The BASICS Slim Wallet will hold all of your cards in place and is secure enough to even hold onto a single card without it falling loose. This is good news, of course. The bad news is that this might mean that pulling the cards out of their holders while you are still in the process of breaking it in might be a bit difficult; however, this should resolve itself after some time.
Sadly, this wallet does not live up to my expectations. The new wallet is substantially bulkier, at least 1 1/2 times thicker than my old wallet with fewer items in it (I took out two rarely used loyalty cards and some business cards, it is still thicker). I'm also not too fond of the shiny, hard carbon fiber inserts on the front and back of the wallet -- my old one was made entirely of uncured, soft carbon fiber with a dull finish and hidden sewing, whereas this wallet has hard shiny inserts with substantial sewing and seams at the edges (the shiny finish is not apparent in the product images). The old wallet easily slipped into my back pant pocket and was so unobtrusive that it went through the wash more than once because I didn't notice it was still in my pants.

On a final note, you’ll notice there are typically two different finishes – gloss and matte. This is achieved in the application itself. It can either go on wet or dry. The wet application will achieve a gloss finish, while the dry will produce a matte finish. The wet is slightly heavier than the dry, but it’s honestly negligible in the case of a wallet.
