i love the look and feel of this cross wallet. The leather is smooth and lux, and the size is perfect for your essentials. My only issue is with the zipper at the top which is slightly too small for the opening - I would LOVE it if the zipper was as long as the wallet itself so that getting things in and out was less clumsy. In any case i still really like it and would recommend it. Perhaps they can fix the zipper issue also!
