I've had this wallet for a couple of weeks now. So far, so good.
What I like: Great size. One of my previous wallets was a 'card' wallet. When I put cash in it folded up, the top of the cash stuck out, which not only didn't look good, but it also led to the top of the cash being damaged. I also like the physical design of having two cards on one side, two cards on the other side, and cash in the middle. I keep my most frequently used credit and card and driver's license on one side and two other cards on the other side. This still leaves space for some cash and maybe one other card in the middle. I also like the build quality and the fact that this is still a thin wallet compared to traditional fold over wallets. The last wallet I used was The Ridge wallet, which is very minimalist. I liked it, but it was difficult at times to get cards out of the middle of it and it was very difficult to fold up cash and get it in the strap (particularly if you were in a hurry), so the Micro Sleeve is much better on that front.
What I'm worried about: The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is b/c of the design of the two outside pockets. Specifically, they face different directions, meaning if you're accessing cards in one of the outside pockets, the outside pocket on the other side is upside down. I worry that over time as the leather loosens up, it could result in one of my cards falling out b/c it's upside down. I have tried the 'shake' test and if I shake the wallet hard enough, I can get the cards to fall out, but if I find myself being shaken like that, my wallet will be the least of my concerns. :) I assume they designed it this way so that you can pinch the two sides and it opens up more easily. With that said, I'd trade easier access to the cash for the security of knowing a couple of my cards aren't upside down while I'm accessing other cards.
Overall, I really like it. I went out on a fashion limb and got the caramel and grey color. I like it and since I'm a Longhorn fan, I tell people it's burnt orange instead of caramel. Hook'em!
