Stitch-less Leather Rivet Wallet by The Leather Shop
About a week ago I received my Leather Rivet Wallet from TheLeatherShop.com.
As you already know by now, and if you don’t, you learn it now, I have a sensibility for cool wallets. I own over 15 wallets and I like to constantly change them depending on my daily activities and my mood! So, knowing the Moose Brand (the leather gear brand behind The Leather Shop) and the high quality of their work from the two items I previously reviewed (the Palm Wallet and the Rivet Card Holder), I was looking forward to receive this new model!

When I first received the Rivet Wallet, I must admit I was a bit afraid it will not provide enough interior space for the basic stuff I like to have on me on daily bases. But, after using it for a week, I must admit (again!!!) that I was wrong, and it did provide more than enough interior space, while keeping the whole package slim and almost undetectable in my pants front pocket (don’t ask me why I keep my wallets in the front pocket, it’s a long story … but basically, because someone with bad intentions has to try twice harder to steal it than from the back pockets)!

I constantly held with me 3 credit cards, 1 ID card, a couple of bills for cash purchases, 4-5 business cards and a flash storage unit (either a micro SD card in a SD adapter or a slim USB drive). The Rivet wallet handled the task very well, and was a real head turner.

On the technical side, the Rivet wallet is made of one piece of folded saddle American leather, held together by a leather strip secured with two brass rivets. There are no stitches, zippers or buttons. The used leather is from the bend of a cow hide (the bend is the most expensive part of a hide and unlike the shoulder or belly – it does not warp), is hand dyed, glazed, and edge burnished. The entire manufacturing process takes place in US with US originating materials.
The Moose Rivet wallet comes in regular saddle leather with three tones available – Natural, Yellow and Tan (the one in the pics and video below is the Tan model) and in Shell Cordovan leather (available in Black and Dark Brown). Perfect for a gift to someone close to you … or to yourself, why not!?!

Check the video and the photo gallery in the post for a full hands-on review and visit TheLeatherShop.com for more info and buy one.

U.S. Military Waterproof Gloves By SealSkinz
Having a good pair of gloves that protect you from cold and snow is a must for any winter sports lover. Another important factor when choosing a good pair of gloves is their thickness (read bulky) – you want to choose a glove which is not too thick and allows you to grab and manipulate objects with ease – also check these US Military waterproof socks, the GPS Ski Gloves and the Rohan Rechargeable Heated Gloves.

The SealSkinz waterproof gloves answer positively to all points described above. They’re not too thick, they’re waterproof and they’re rated to keep your hand warm down to temperatures as low as -30º F (that’s around -35º C).The gloves feature a three-layer build: an outer layer of nylon/lycra for durability and grip, a waterproof middle layer and a Polartec fleece inner designed to wick away moisture. The SealSkinz gloves are made in US and are used by the US Military.
