A policeman recommended that I never leave home without some ID in my possession. I seldom drive (my husband always drive) so I get in the car with just my cell phone (I hate carrying a purse). This case solved the problem. I should have gone with a bit larger because I carry medical id, driver's license and a credit card. The wallet is not quite big enough. What I like most is the color, the strap and the closure flap. It is a great item!!
