Buffalo Jackson Made In USA Wallet Review
Our review of the Buffalo Jackson Ryder Reserve Bison Wallet looks at their rugged made-in-the-USA wallet.
Buffalo Jackson started in 2009 in much the same way as other great American companies – in a garage. With the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, the founders set out to re-create quality American manufacturing with a large selection of leather goods.
The Buffalo Jackson Wallet
Buffalo Jackson wallets are traditional hard-working, hard-wearing wallets. With American-sourced buffalo leather, these are the classic type of wallets you can pass down to the next generation. They aren't minimalist like Ridge or Dango, but they are sturdy, well built, and make a statement about the owner.
What types of wallets does Buffalo Jackson offer?
- Bifold Wallets – the most traditional kind of wallet.
- Trifold Wallets – just as traditional but smaller.
- Money Clip Wallets – small "wallets" made to hold currency.
- ID Wallets – small "wallets" to have easy access to work or other essential IDs.
- Field Notes Wallets – wallets designed around the famous American Made Field Notes pocket notebooks.
- Checkbook Wallets – wallets designed to hold your checkbook if you still have one.

Our use case
The Buffalo Jackson Ryder Reserve Bison wallet offers the perfect mix of ruggedness and sophistication. You could wear it with a suit in the city or jeans in the country. It has a large storage capacity with a few hidden compartments and other compartments for essential paperwork or business cards. The section for cash is also large, and you can stuff bills, notes, or receipts. Just be sure to take them out at the end of the day.
From the Reviewer –
I like how classy the wallet looks and how it complements the line of my suits. This is not just a ruggedly well-built wallet; it's a statement and a work of art.
Why you need a traditional wallet
Minimalist and modular wallets such as Dango and Ridge have their use cases, but so do traditional wallets. To start with, a traditional wallet is a simpler way to go. You won't need to carry both a minimalist wallet and a money clip. Everything is together in one elegant piece. This is the type of wallet that both Don Draper and James Bond could agree on. If you want a wallet for functionality as well as style, Buffalo Jackson might be the right choice for you.
Using the Buffalo Jackson wallet
From the reviewer -
I love the rough but high-quality bison leather used in this wallet. The fit and finish looks rustic but feels like a baseball glove. There's more than enough room for my credit cards, insurance cards, ID cards, and cash. Based on the feeling of this wallet and the luxurious smell of the leather, I'd would Definity pull the trigger for other Buffalo Jackson products. I feel that this wallet and their other products can last for decades, not years.
The buying experience for Buffalo Jackson
We purchased our bifold Ryder Reserve Bison straight off the website. The buying process was easy. We do suggest you sign up first and register. Shipping was free. Buffalo Jackson sells products on Amazon; however, at this article's time, everything appears to be sold out. Besides, you can buy direct and pay the same amount. Shipping only took a few days, and the packaging was very nice. The wallet came in a nice fabric bag, which our reviewer plans to use as a cover for his camera lens.
It could be better if…
The wallet is well made but could have more pockets, especially in the billfold area. There is no RFID option available, and they should consider that option in some of their wallets.
Pricing for the USA-made wallet is excellent, considering the leather and craftsmanship.
