  • Question for those owning Notetaker wallets

    I'm considering purchasing one.
    I'm admittedly turned off by the price, but it's also the smallest wallet/notepad that I have found, which is important to me as I don't like carrying around a large wallet.

    However, I have a question for those who own one.
    How many credit cards/IDs/etc. will the wallet effectively hold?

    All answers appreciated.

    Notetaker Wallet

    It holds two, unless you want a fat wallet and squeeze a few more in.

        I use a Wenger Mini Pad Folio. At $15.99, it's much cheaper than the "official" wallet, though I can't vouch for the difference in quality since I haven't used the latter. I keep my cash (folded), credit cards, insurance cards, library cards, etc. in the wallet with no problem. And I personally prefer Wenger's ruled pads to the unruled pads, but either set of pads will fit in either wallet.

        The pen that's issued with the wallet is terrible, so I'd recommend purchasing a pair of Zebra retractable pens, which are around $5 a set at Office Depot and Office Max.

          I don't have as much as Jason, but I've got:

          2 Credit Cards
          Drivers License
          USCF Racing/Coaching License
          Med. Insurance Card
          Co. Flex Card
          PBA Card
          Costco Membership Card
          AAA Card
          Bike Shop discount card
          Pad
          Pen

          And... it's still thinner than my previous wallet! This thing rocks! Yeah, it's a little pricey, but I can't tell you how many times the pad/pen have come in handy. Well worth the price of admission.

            Wenger Mini Folio

            Any idea who may still have the Wenger Mini Folio in stock?

              International Pocket Briefcase?

              I'm considering getting a NoteTaker Wallet, but I really prefer using index cards for on-the-fly writing so I'm also tempted by Levenger's international pocket briefcase. Anyone tried using one of these as a wallet? Does the size work, or is it too big?

                Sorry to get your hopes up. The original link from the thread that tipped me off to buy the Wenger back in December was http://www.avenuesinleather.com/bizgear.htm. Unfortunately, that particular product no longer shows up on the page. The resellers I've looked up are all out of stock on it. So it looks like the tables have turned: Davidco has their product in stock, but their competition doesn't. The PadFolio is ostensibly out of production.

                Another alternative is Levenger's Swift Notes Pad Holder.

                  Pocket Briefcase

                  I've owned the pocket briefcase for a couple of years. . .

                  Everynow and then I try to start using it, but it is just a little too big and there is no sorting to the pockets. I wouldn't give it a thumbs down as it is as advertised, but I can't give it a thumbs up, because it just doesn't work for me.

                  So, I am looking at this thread to see if maybe I should take the leap on the Notetaker wallet.

                    You may be able to get it here, but at a higher price that mentioned in a previous post:

                    http://www.ecworldimports.com/weswarlemifo.html

                    If you look at the individual prices of the pen, refills, and pads, they are approximately half the cost of the Notetaker wallet set. Fine leather isn't cheap.

                      3X5 Wallet

                      For those who favor 3x5 cards for note taking I have a jotter from http://www.traveltools.com/jotters.htm that I like a lot.

                      Seems to hold a bit more stuff (5 CC slots), but it's also a bit bigger (owing to the 3x5 format)

                        I'd do it all over again at twice the original $15 price. Besides, Wenger does still make their pad refills availble on their website. I bought a set last month for $7, which included shipping. The Zebra pens come in packs of two for $5 in stores, and the packs include two replacement cartridges!

                        The one feature of the Davidco Notetaker Wallet that I find attractive as a southpaw is the notepad's positioning on the right side instead of the left, like the Wenger. So take your handedness into consideration when deciding which would be the better option.

                          Although not available online, I just bought a Wenger Mini Folio at my local Staples. Whoever put a Staples right next to where my wife works and hence where I was already going is an evil, evil person. An evil person with more of my money today.

                          Those looking for a Wenger might find it helpful, if you're in an area served by one or more of the big office supply companies, to call around and see if anyone has one in stock.

                          I'm not completely convinced that it will replace my Hipster PDA but you can't beat it's portability.

                            I have a Levenger pocket briefcase also. I have found that it works as a wallet. It seems a little big though. I too am looking at David's notetaker wallet as an option. I have looked for a note pad to work with the pocket briefcase. I think it was designed to work with 3 x 5 cards only.

                            David said in an earlier post on his blog that he was teaming up with Levenger in later summer or early fall. It may be worthwhile to wait and see what they come up with working together.

                              Anyone use both a Notetaker-style wallet and a PDA? How do you use each? Where do you draw the lines?
