Review: Compact, Quality Leather Wallet with Tile Tracker Included

I love the quality leather goods from Nomad, so I was excited to see its latest offering. The Slim Wallet with Tile Tracking ($79.95) is like Nomad's earlier wallets in that it is made of high-quality Horween Leather. It is really designed for credit and ID cards as opposed to cash, with five card slots.

What is special about this model is it has a slot for an integrated Tile Tracker. This is great because you can track your wallet via Bluetooth using your smartphone or tablet. The app can leverage Tile's large community of users to help you find your gear. 

The thin Tile Tracker is so thin because it does not use a replaceable battery; but when you need a new one, it should slip in to the slot . The Tile devices sell for about $30. It's compact enough to be suitable for use in the front pocket. 

Pros

  • High-quality Horween Leather
  • Five card slots
  • Integrated Tile Tracker
  • Compact style suitable for front pocket

Cons

  • Tile battery not replaceable
  • Better suited for cards not cash

Final Verdict

If you carry credit cards more often than cash, and worry about losing your wallet, the Slim Wallet with Tile Tracking from Nomad is built for you.
