#10-1 Ponderosa Trucker Wallet $89.75 Your choice of leather outside with complimenting buffalo calf leather color inside standard. There are two other choices on the ordering menu for interior leather, Natural Horsehide and Natural oak Calfskin. Most of the images show Nubuck leather interiors which we no longer use. Measures 8" x 4" closed and has a 12" braided lanyard. Wallet shown on left is made with Brown Shrunken Grain leather.
I have both the Eagle and Walking Liberty half dollar for the belt loop and Buffalo nickel and Indian head snaps for the wallet. You can specify which snap you want for the belt loop and wallet on the ordering menu below. You can also ask for plain nickel snaps for both if you want the wallet that way.
The hardware on all Ponderosa Wallet belt loops, lanyards, and chains, is now the same as shown on the shorter 10-4 wallets below.
#10-1A is the same Ponderosa wallet with the traditional chain instead of braided lanyard for $15.00 less. There is a lot of room for stuff in this one with an easy access bill compartment, card pocket, open pockets and zipper pocket. Keys can be carried on the key ring and unclipped from the belt loop for use on the lanyard. Versatile and comfortable without the normal extra thickness of flap and snap in the pocket. Left hand version available by request.
This wallet will look better on you than it does on me. It's too cool for my jeans. (My wife says I have a bird ass)
#10-2 Ponderosa Wallet, configuration #2
In this configuration the wallet has 4 card pockets, interior currency pockets, and two attached expanding pockets. A check book will fit in the expansion pocket.

#10-3 Ponderosa Wallet, configuration #3
In this configuration the wallet has 4 card pockets, interior currency pockets, and Zipper pocket with ID or additional card pocket. The card pockets on the left can easily hold 2 cards each.

Click on the image for a larger view of this wallet in, Tan hand stained oak leather. The belt loop shown with this wallet is Med. Br. to show the difference in color. Wallets and loops are made and shipped with matching colors. The hand stained leather wallet costs $10.00 more than the other leather choices. The oak leather used for the hand stained colors is more firm than the other leathers and will break in with use without additional treatment. The hand stained colors are the same as the harness leather belt colors.
Tan Shrunken Grain leather and Hand stained wallet
#10-4 Small Ponderosa Wallet.
This wallet has 3 card pockets on each side plus one more card pocket and an expanding pocket beneath on each side, with rear currency pocket. This size measures 5-1/4" high and 4" wide and completely fits inside rear pocket as shown below, check your pocket size. The Ponderosa wallets can also be ordered without the chain, belt loop, or grommet.
The small Ponderosa can be made for you with either chain ($74.75), or leather lanyard ($89.75), and your choice of outside leather, and buffalo calf leather interior. All natural oak leather is $10.00 more. The 10-4 shown below left is Med. Brown hand stained leather.
Image on right shows rear bill compartment and interior pockets in natural (Horse Hide)leather. The natural horse hide leather is a light brown (sometimes slightly distressed)top grain leather. The natural calf leather is the light flesh colored unstained leather.
Ponderosa wallets are also available in unfinished natural oak leather as shown on the left, similar to Red Moon, but less bulky. These are not Red Moon copies or knockoffs but have a similar look when ordered with the unfinished natural oak cowhide outside and natural oak calfskin interior.
This leather breaks in with a leathery look in it's own unique way. The calfskin interior makes the interior pockets thinner and stronger than cowhide would be. The one exception to all leather is that wallets with card slots have a strong ripstop interior liner to retain the cards. It would be too bulky to do this with leather.
This is what the natural leather wallet can look like after one year. Every one will be different depending on use.
I've had customers asking for one more level of complication so here it is. It's an Applique added to the outside corner. That choice has been added to the ordering Menu as a $10.00 additional option. You get to choose the color. Shown below is a medium brown hand stained wallet with a dark brown Applique.
Here it is in Black on natural leather, on a left hand 10-4 wallet

#10-4 Zip Ponderosa Wallet.
This configuration of the Small Ponderosa Wallet has card pockets on one side and a zipper pocket on the other. Shown here with natural Horse Hide leather interior.
The expanding Small Ponderosa pocket layout, with natural Horse Hide leather interior.
The Ponderosa braided lanyard $20.50, and Lanyard with leather belt loop $30.50, can be ordered separately from menu choice A. This is the lanyard configuration we are using now. Some images above show an additional clip which is unnecessary, and just add to the weight. It has been eliminated.
Lately I've been asked for wallets without the chain, lanyard, or grommet so I have added that option to the ordering menu. Selecting that deducts $10.00 Be sure to order with chain so that it deducts the lanyard price. Do not order with lanyard as it only refunds for chain.
Available Ponderosa Wallet leathers are the Buffalo Calf colors
Mediun Brown Dark Brown Black
Lt.Brown Buffalo Calf can be seen on the top right wallet at the top of the page.
The textured leathers are shown below. The Tan, Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, and Black Hand Stained Oak (saddle) leather colors are shown on the harness leather belt page.
The Dk. Brown Milled and tan shrunken are sold out. The shrunken grain is the result of the way it is tanned. The grain is perhaps more pronounced than it appears in the images above. The light brown buffalo calf is also sold out. I'm looking for a supplier.

I got the address of your website from a forum talking about Red Moon wallets. By the way, how on earth do the folks at Red Moon manage to come to the figure they sell their stuff at? It really is a mystery. As far as I can see the wallets you are making are every bit as good as these if not better, at a fraction of the cost. I am sure the cows in Japan have the same hide as the ones in the States, don't they?
The answer is... they sell wholesale so they have to maintain a price structure that makes money for their retailers. I don't have retailers so I don't have to maintain a high price for them. What I sell them for is the basic wholesale price, then I allow the customer to add extra cost options if they want to, so they have some control over the cost.
