The originals are better than the replacement ones for many reasons. The original Chums Card Wallets:
1) are slightly larger and more expandable: They hold my license and other cards, cash, lip balm, etc.
2) are sturdier: The material is thick and similar to what is used for backpacks. The edges are all bound.
3) are more secure: The zippers stay shut and don't open on their own. The zippers also have strong cords with easy-pull tabs.
4) are cuter: They have the red-footed booby birds with red feet embroidered into the tough fabric.
These replacement Surfshort Wallets:
1) are slightly smaller and have a smaller window: My entire driver's license didn't show through the window, and the wallet didn't hold as much of my stuff.
2) are flimsy: The material is thinner, and there is no binding along the edges. I'm guessing my driver's license would cut through the fabric after a while.
3) are not secure. The flimsy zippers open on their own. I lost some change and maybe bills because of this. Although there is an additional open pocket with reflective material, there is nothing I would put in there due to the risk of losing it.
4) are more about product advertising and less about cuteness: Some models have a thin patch with a mono-colored booby bird (no red feet) and the CHUMS logo sticking out of his stomach. The patch on mine started to come off and ravel within the first week of use. I sewed back on what was left of it. The newest models have only the CHUMS logo and no bird.
I included a photo of my "new" Chums Surfshort Wallet next to my new original Chums Card Wallet. You can see that the zipper on the replacement is opening on its own, and the top right corner of the thin logo patch has wasted away. I now use this cheap replacement wallet to attach my work ID holder and desk key.
Here's the trick...One way that I use this differently is I replace the keyring from the nylon attachment with about 3/4 foot of paracord (not 550 - I use the the slightly smaller size to cut down on bulk) and tie it off so it is secure. Then, when I'm ready to head out for the day, I take the paracord and loop-attach it around my front belt loop. I don't tie it to the belt loop, I stick the loop through then pull the wallet through the loop. That way it's easy to take off if needed and you aren't untying any knots.
But why the heck would I do all that? When I travel I worry about pickpockets. So not only do I have my wallet in my front pocket which can be safer, I also have it attached to me so it can't easily be slipped out and removed. When using, I can get to money, ID, cards, whatever I need and it never leaves me. Hopefully I explained that well enough, but if not I can post a picture of how I do it.
This wallet is also great for an amusement park. #1 the material it's made out of is great for water rides. #2 if you use the trick above, you won't need to worry about it flying out of your pocket on a roller coaster.

This wallet is not advertised as providing RFID protection, but my commuter pass card (MARTA rail & bus in Atlanta) will not register to tap in for riding, unless I put it in the window pocket of the wallet. (My leather wallet never blocked the card from reading.)
The “mustard and horizon blue” color choice makes it easy to see compared to a black wallet when laying around “somewhere” in the house. The actual mustard yellow is not as neon bright as the web image led me to believe. The color looks very much like “Gulden's Brown mustard”, so the text description of the color is accurate.
I have the wallet tethered to a lanyard of 550 para cord that I cow hitch to a belt loop, so my wallet and keys are in my front pocket, never to stray again. I wish I had this “system” of organization in place before I recently lost my wallet! I know it my sound overblown, but this wallet has removed all fear of me losing my wallet and keys, giving me much peace of mind, as well as saving me all kinds of time since I no longer “search” the house or my office cubicle for wallet or keys not remembering where I put them down. Getting this wallet was the best use of eight and a half bucks I every spent. All I need to do now is to just keep up with my pants. Getting old is hell!
(I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could. Half a point off for the fabric color being duller than the online photo indicates.)
