I've owned a Ridge wallet now for several years. Mine was one of the first edition's to come out and other than the screws coming out (which Ridge replaced for free), I've had 0 issues. I decided to buy my dad one for his birthday. Other than the significant increase in price (twice as much), it still looks and works just the same. I think he's getting used to it, but will enjoy it in the long run, as I have come to do.
