In short: It's not perfect, but it's still worth the money.
Pros: Very, very high-quality leather, looks awesome, CTW and peek work like a dream, and the levitation system is a new, original, and downright ingenious implementation of a traditional device. When I first got it, I thought the way things were arranged inside was very odd and haphazard. The more I use it, though, the more I see how much genuine forethought and care went into its design. For instance, two compartments are alongside one another so that, after performing a signed CTW, you can immediately attach it to the levitation system and *float* it out to your waiting hand.
There's a ton of cons I could list, though, and each and every one of them has to do the with fire gimmick. I love fire wallets, and was disappointed at the seemingly low quality in the gimmick you get for the price you pay. Not sure if it has to do with the fact that the one Wright uses in his excellent instructional video is different from the one I actually received, but either way, I've used much more reliable and durable systems that don't have a tendency to detach themselves from the wallet the way that the fire-retardant tape inside Vader does (have had to continually supplement it with various glues).
That all being said, this is a "why didn't I think of that first?" product that the magic community has sorely needed for years without realizing it. As much as it may sound like marketing hype, this really IS the only wallet you need ever buy. For all the frustration that the fire gimmick has given me, I'll never go back to anything else. Still, I'd have gladly paid an additional $50 USD on top of the existing price to have the gimmick pre-installed (I don't see why anyone wouldn't want it in there to begin with, given how much of the total cost it represents).
So, it's worth your money -- unless, that is, Matthew Wright can be persuaded to some day release a "version 2.0" that comes with the fire device pre-installed by the manufacturer, because that would easily resolve the issues everyone has been having with it, in my opinion.
I love my Vader wallet! This is probably the last wallet I will ever purchase. It has everything you need to do a full routine, and it is taught excellently. All of the devices work phenomenally, and I can give it no fault! One problem, it didn't come with enough tape for the fire wallet section, but that was a shipping error, and not the fault of the product.
This is my fourth magic wallet and certainly my last - finally a wallet that looks like a real wallet and can do some crazy magic! The himber chamber and the fire chamber are the same so you will need to pick which one you want, but other than that - this is high quality and the video is INSANE! Matthew gives you so much magic! This is so worth your money!
