Cavenders Wallet Review
A Range of Western Style Wallets
Cavenders is known for its unique array of ‘Western’ style wallets that encapsulate traditional designs from the wild west era with motifs and designs that wouldn’t look out of place in a movie. Cavenders isn’t actually famed for their range of wallets but creates a huge array of so-called ‘performance products’ for outdoor and work environments putting emphasis on quality, durability, and of course performance. Today we’re going to briefly look at the array of wallets offered by Cavenders and see whether nor not they would be the right fit for you.
As mentioned earlier Cavenders has a very unusual, yet traditional, design philosophy with a range of wallets. Each is designed with a western look, with intricate patternations on the front that give each Cavender’s Wallet a classic or vintage look to it. Although these designs will probably not be everyone’s cup of tea, there’s no denying the fantastic quality and craftsmanship that has gone into each. My favorite example of this is Cavenders’s Cross Hair Trifold which has a design that has an embossed design that looks like it’s jumping out at you, along with the quality metal (shield concho) logo on the front.
The functionality of the Cavenders Wallet(s) is what I’d consider satisfactory. They really don’t do much in the ways of innovation, and with each wallet comes a simple design to do the bare minimum of what you’d expect from a wallet. This includes simple cash and credit/debit card storage, full-width cash storage, and perhaps an ID Slot or two (in some cases). Considering many of the Cavenders Wallet’s sizes (dimensions) the functionality lacked and lack creativity. No quick-access slots, no easy way to access your most used cards, and no RFID.
Finally, I’ll quickly run through some of the different types of wallets Cavenders offers. Most are quite classic designs including the likes of leather and fabric bifolds but do offer some trifold vCavendersions along with the Cavenders Long Wallet which is best suited for those who have a lot of cards with them on a daily basis.
Overall, I had mixed feelings about the Cavenders Wallet range. I absolutely appreciated the intricate nature and fantastic designs that Cavenders provide (even though they’re not my style), and the quality of materials and craftsmanship was above average. What really let the wallets down for me was the functionality and ease of use, with wallets that didn’t store enough or bulked out way too easily. Starting at a price tag of $27.00 – $62.00, the Cavenders Wallet range is more than affordable for what you get.
