The SAFE Wallet for iPhone 6 Plus (and 6s Plus) is the latest wallet case from the friendly folks at BulletTrain. Like the previous SAFE Wallet for iPhone 5, this version contains a "safe," or hinged compartment to hold credit cards, IDs, and business cards. The concept for all models is brilliant and the execution is well done, and the case comes in several colors. The 6 Plus model even contains a small compartment (called the "secret stash") for concealing a house key, extra cash, or other small items. To my surprise, the SAFE Wallet fits in my front jeans pocket without any issues.
I like supporting quality products from entrepreneurs who are attempting to break into large markets. BulletTrain produces well-designed, functional, creative products that make me feel proud to own, and their customer service has been top notch.
Another issue I've discovered after using this case for about a week is that it's a bit slippery to hold. The material is solid and feels secure, but my phone has slipped out of my hand a few times and hit the floor. Thankfully, the SAFE Wallet did it's job and my phone is still in great shape.
Availability is another factor that can be frustrating. Currently, the only place I've found to purchase the SAFE Wallet is from Bullet Train's website, and delivery for new models can be slow. The shipping is through UPS Innovations, which uses both UPS and the USPS to deliver your package. My SAFE Wallet arrived 6 days after I placed the order.
Bottom line: If you're looking for a wallet case for your iPhone and you can stomach the cost, you can't go wrong with the SAFE Wallet. My biggest fear is that if I misplace my phone, I've also lost my cards and ID, as well. Perhaps I should use that "secret stash" compartment to house a Tile!
I look forward to seeing what other innovative products the folks at BulletTrain will introduce. For now, they have a winner with the SAFE Wallet. Let's just hope they'll be able to break into new retail outlets so this dandy case can become more available.
