There are 2 versions of this wallet, Hip Pocket and Suit Up Style. They are about the same except that the Suit Up style comes with an additional outer wallet Mullica style. They can be used as a non-palm card to wallet as well as any object to wallet.
When they first introduce this during the DVD opening, they were comparing thickness with a conventional wallet and stressed how thin the Sansminds Wallet is. To me, I think it’s not a fair comparison as the conventional wallet allows more stuffs in the wallet. You can put bills into the wallet but not into Sansminds Wallet (well, unless you fold it).
Do not buy this in the hope that it can replace your everyday wallet, I am sure you will not have enough space for your regular things you keep in your wallet. I also do not want to use Sansminds Wallet as my everyday wallet as it looks ugly. The stitching of the wallet could have been better considering the amount of money this cost. You can see the Suit Up Style in this pic.
When I first saw the wallet, I find that it looks weird. This looks like a broken half of a regular wallet. There are 2 card compartments and a slightly larger compartment in this wallet. You can probably store some name cards in it. The one I am reviewing is the Suit Up style.
The zipper is kinda big and not quite smooth when zipping and unzipping. The zipper would probably be smoother after some use. Being a Mullica style wallet, you have 2 pieces and thus making the effect seems more impossible. Apart from a CTW wallet, this can also be used as Peek wallet, so that’s a bonus for this wallet. The effects taught in the DVD are nothing ground breaking and are the standard CTW type of effect.
My first impression of the wallet was not really good. After watching the DVD and playing around, I think it’s rather useful. I am always a sucker for objects into impossible places and this would be useful. If you think you’d use this more as a CTW wallet, the Suit Up style would be better due to the Mullic style. If you want a more versatile Sansminds wallet, the Hip Pocket would probably be better.
Here is what I did with the wallet.
As you can see, this is not restricted to card to wallet; you can use this for anything that can fit inside the wallet.
Sansminds effects would almost always require you to make your own gimmick. This wallet is one of effect whereby you can use it right out of the package. Despite of the not so good things I said about the wallet, I quite like this and would also recommend it.
