My husband and I both ordered one of those aluminum wallets you see in the commercials. We had both had issues with our regular wallets and thought these would be the perfect solution. They have as hard of a shell as they advertise... Which is great! They both, however, broke at the latch. It isn't very water proof when you can't close it. I had to put rubber bands on it to keep them closed, but that ended up being more trouble than it was worth. I'm sure other people have had wonderful experiences with it. This is just what happened to the two I bought.
