First Impression:

I must say, when I received the passport wallet, I was really impressed with what I saw. At first glance, it looks like a typical passport wallet. The packing was extremely good, so the product I received was in absolutely good condition without any transportation damage.

The 5 Point Review:

1. Functionality:

Rating-  8.5 

Urby passport holder with cards, passport and cash inside

It has three slots for cards. The cards fit in easily and the slots hold them tight, which keeps them safe.  The other pocket given can be used for other cards or quick cash (cash can only fit if it is folded and when I say quick cash, it means not much). The cash pocket is also tight, hence you need not worry about cash falling out of the wallet.

The open section can accommodate folded travel documents but you will not be able to fit in much here, maybe one or two documents or boarding pass (but I would prefer not to keep my documents here but separately in a folder). You can use this slot to keep some cash instead. The external slot at the rear can be used for receipts or folded currency.

The large vertical pocket to the right is intended to have the back page of your passport slide in for easy display and works well.

What I noticed is even after stuffing the passport holder with all the above-described items, the wallet does not feel stuffed or bulky on the contrary it looks neatly organised.

Watch the video to clearly understand how passport, card and cash fit in the wallet.

2. Look, Feel & Durability:

Rating-  9 

The quality of the leather is great. It feels like a premium product. Fitting and removing the passport in the given slot is really easy. The stitch is really clean, seamless and the craftsmanship is absolutely spot on. Also, the passport holder is also quite durable and appropriate for rough and tough use.  Although simplistic in its design, it looks pretty classy.

3. Security:

Rating-  7 

The one drawback which many may point out is that it does not have an RFID protection, but that is something which I believe is not required, as they sell their products only in India right now. Most credit cards in India still use chip and PIN method also Indian passports are not chip enabled. So I don’t see any point in spending extra money for such protections.

If you are still not convinced of the hype about RFID protection, you may find an article useful which I found in another blog explaining this topic in detail. To read the article,  click here.

4. Urby Shopping Experience:

Rating-  9.3 

So the first thing you need to know is this product is only available online. You need to log in to Urby website where you will find a list of all their products. The shopping experience is quite easy and quick. Their website is quite neatly designed and easy to browse. The best part is the number of options they have in each product section. You get to choose from a vast palette of colours, styles and material as per your taste. The best part is you can get it customized by getting your initials printed for an extra minimal price.

What I was impressed with is that they do not charge anything extra for shipping and the delivery time is also quite quick.

5. Value for Money:

Rating-  9  

 I am a regular leather wallets and bags buyer. I have tried various other Indian leather brands and what I observe is the products from Urby are reasonably priced. I must say it has good value for money and priced lower than its competition. This is possible because of their unique retail model system. The products from the other brands reach us after going through retailers, wholesalers and distributors and we all know they make their cuts, which we end up paying for whereas products from Urby reaches us directly after design and production, cutting all the middle person, hence such reasonably priced products.
