Runbox Wallet Review
Another Amazon Copycat Wallet
Runbox is a range of leather wallets that are sold exclusively on Amazon. Before I get into the review, I’m going to let you know that the Runbox Wallet is what’s known as a ‘copycat’ wallet. A Copycat wallet is what I called a mass-produced wallet of a certain design that can be seen used and utilized by many brands across the world (for more information on Copycat Wallets click here). Examples of other wallets that look the same as the Runbox Wallet include the Forrest & Harold Wallet, or the Zitalhli Wallet. That being said, I always strive to review each and every wallet impartially, so with that warning out of the way, let’s see what the Runbox Wallet has to offer.
The Runbox wallet is a simple leather bifold wallet that can only be described as a jack of all trades. By this I mean, the wallet does a good job of maximining space to provide you with a huge variety of different features for storage of cash, cards, and other daily carry items. In total, the Runbox Wallet can store up to 𝟏𝟎-𝟏𝟐 cards with its full-width note slot large enough to store up to 𝟏𝟓 banknotes. International buyers are aware, as the wallet is designed for the US Dollar, and many larger-sized banknotes (EUROs partially) won’t fit correctly and leave some of the banknote overhanging at the top. Card slots are spread out among different areas of the wallet. Some of the front, back, and inside, which are highly versatile enabling you to easily organize your cards in the best way to suit you.
Not only this, but the Runbox Wallet also has some nice additional features including RFID Blocking Security (which helps protect yourself from contactless fraud) along with quick access slots (for easy access) and an ID Card slot to allow you to easily showcase your employee or drivers license easily. Generally speaking, the Runbox Wallet isn’t the best when it comes to both qualities of materials and craftsmanship being made from genuine leather. Genuine Leather is probably one of the most misleading terms in the leathercraft industry, as the name implies ‘luxury’ or ‘quality’. In reality, it’s quite the opposite, with Genuine Leather ranking near the bottom for the worst quality leather types on the market.
This is something that often times annoys me as people fall into a trap with purchasing genuine leather goods, only to find the product is less than adequate when it comes to quality – the same can be said for the Runbox Wallet. The leather feels poor quality, overly hard to the touch, and generally flimsy and weak. The Runbox Wallet can also be bought in a small variety of color variations including Black, Brown, Coffee (dark brown), Blue, and Grey.
