WaterField Finn Wallet for iPhone 7 plus is the product that is reviewed in this article. WaterField is a well established company in San Francisco that is making device specific sleeves, accessories and other bags.
I was personally looking for a wallet that could fit my passport, car papers, a few cards and even my Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 smartphone. I wanted something with a high quality finish and at the same time functional, just like my Exentri Wallet.
Waterfield Finn Wallet for iPhone 7 Plus
“The all-leather Finn Wallet maintains its ultra-thin profile even when fully stuffed. It comes in various sizes for carrying just cash and credit, or also an iPhone, Passport, and foreign currency. RFID-blocking certified material is optional. See also Finn Access Wallet which includes an external pocket.”
The WaterField Finn Wallet has a high quality and stylish finish. The cowhide leather has a really smooth and soft surface and has a slightly matt black color finish.
I’ve ordered a black leather version in size #29 that could perfectly fit an iPhone 7 Plus and also fits my Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. Size #29 means that the WaterField Finn Wallet has the following dimensions: 16.5 cm x 10.8 cm .
When you think the ultra thin profile would be a term just for marketing purposes, you are completely wrong. The wallet is really thin, almost 50% as thick as the Waterfield Club Cycling Pouch. However you can still stash a lot of things in the Finn Wallet. The Waterfield Finn Wallet stores:
- Car papers
- Insurance card and a couple of plastic cards
- Smartphone if needed;
The inside of the WaterField Finn Wallet for iPhone 7 Plus is from WaterFields well-known ballistic nylon. This material is highly durable. On the side you can see 4 card sleeves to store those plastic cards in a structured way. Furthermore you can see the “MADE IN SAN FRANCISCO SFBAGS.COM” label sewed on the inside.
I would like to highlight the YKK locking zippers, which are also used on the WaterField Micro Wallet. The advantage of these zippers is that you can feel the different zipper-lock-positions when rotating the zipper handle. There is a rubber protection cover on the zipper end. All in all the zipper feels very robust and durable, just like the rest of the wallet. However it is not a waterproof version (compared to the Club Cycling Pouch zipper).
RFID blocking certified material
On of the unique features of the WaterField Finn Wallet for iPhone 7 Plus is the RFID blocking material that is integrated between the full-grain cowhide leather exterior and the internal ballistic nylon liner.
It can be selected as an option during the ordering process. WaterField was kind enough to provide me with a picture of the RFID blocking material during the productions process of a WaterField Finn Wallet.
While you don’t see this material on the outside, it protects your precious banking cards and passport on the inside.
Concluding thoughts and wrap-up
WaterField Finn Wallet for iPhone 7 Plus is a large high quality wallet, that I specifically chose to keep my car papers, passport etc. safe. The ultra thin profile makes it easy to handle while the finish of the leather gives it a business style look.
WaterField Finn Wallet for iPhone 7 Plus has a price point of $59,- with additional $10,- for the RFID blocking material. The total price is not cheap, but from experience I know that WaterField products are build to last, given the craftsmanship and use of high quality materials.
In addition I had a few questions to the WaterField team regarding the size before I made the purchase, which were perfectly answered. With that kept in mind I don’t mind to spending a little more.
Currently WaterField also provides the WaterField Finn Access Wallet for iPhone 8 Plus. An “Access” version of the Finn Wallet wasn’t available when I ordered mine. So that it certainly an option to consider. I’m even thinking to replace my Exentri Wallet with a Compact Finn Access Wallet with RFID shielding (size #25)
