Review: Pacsafe Toursafe Wallet

The nice people at United Limsun, the authorized Philippine distributor of Pacsafe gave me another item for review, which compliments the Toursafe Handbag: the Pacsafe Toursafe Wallet. The Toursafe Wallet comes in the same design and colors as the handbag: black, taupe and tabasco.

The wallet matches my handbag perfectly: it’s also black outside and lilac inside. The wallet comes with a slash-proof chain that you can hook to any Toursafe bag, giving you peace of mind that your wallet’s not going anywhere.

The wallet is an accordion style checkbook wallet*, which gives you plenty of space to store and organize your bills, coins, receipts, cards and even your passport! It measures 7.4″ x 3.9″ x 0.6″ — a pretty standard size, yet slim and compact.

In the past years, I’ve stopped using wallets, opting for simple zippered pouches. I was hesitant to review the wallet at first, since I wasn’t too keen to use it, but I’ve grown to like it after using the wallet for two months. What I love about it is the compartments that let me separate different currencies. Since I travel overseas fairly often, I have to deal with a variety of paper bills and coins whenever I cross borders. My practice before the wallet is that I keep a second wallet to hold all the currency that can’t be used for the country I’m currently in. With the Toursafe wallet, I can put my Philippine peso in one compartment, my Thai baht in the other, my US dollar in another.

I like that there’s plenty of card slots inside the wallet. It comes handy for organizing my card collection, which includes my credit cards, ATM, Timezone game cards, loyalty/rewards cards, fare cards and the Pacsafe Prosafe 750 key card. There are also slip pockets for receipts or keeping travel notes.

All in all, it’s a pretty good buy at Php 1,199 Php 1,999**, considering that a lot of wallets go for around that price range.

Pacsafe is available in Manila in all Travel Club branches, Brat Pack, Rustan’s, Hahn, ROX, I Studio, I Gig, Flight 360 and Bombproofgear. A huge thank you go out to United Limsun for the wallet.

** Edited October 14, 2010. Went to ROX and much to my dismay, I found out I mixed up my prices. The wallet is priced at Php 1,999, not Php 1,199 as I originally wrote. Sorry about that :-/

    I’ve been meaning to buy this, since I first saw it when I got my Pacsafe Toursafe handbag. And is now on the top of my list for next month, once my budget permits it :)

    The compartments would help me with all the receipts, IDs and other things I stuff my wallet with.

    Hey Nina! :) I went to Brat Pack the wallet is almost Php 2,000 not Php 1,199 :(

    Wallet is cool,but I’m like you – probably need to be a convert first as I’m not much of a “wallet person.” (Purse is super cute though!)

    I just want to ask where did you buy the wallet? I can’t find anywhere except for only bags and other stuff
