Bifold Wallet Reviews
You might take issue with some minor aspects of Ashland Leather wallets, but if you’re a fan of good leather, great construction, functional excellence and attention to details, you’ll love the Tony the Ant wallet.
The Bellroy Apex Slim Sleeve wallet ventures into new visual, functional and manufacturing design. Blazing the path for what we could begin to see in the future from Bellroy, there are some shortcomings and a disappointment in the quality.
Made in Spain, the Harber London wallet, bifold in this case, is a competent wallet with many features you’d find in competitive offerings, but it is expensive.
Handmade from Tochigi leather in Japan, the Chisotoyama Gallery wallet/coin pouch combination is an interesting take on extending the long-loved pinch to open, mechanical coin pouch.
Created to be easy to use in a small footprint with reasonable capacity in mind, the ROIK City wallet has created a nice looking design that’s truly functional.
The Serman Brands 5.0 wallet continues to demonstrate their ability to look at the market and see what is trending to keep their customers coming back. The 5.0 version is no different with great features, and priced to make it an easy decision
With one wallet design, you can get it in brown or black, NOMAD has honed it’s design into an excellent showcase of quality material, durable construction and now, with the inclusion of a tracking Tile, a way to never lose it! Get a close look at the NOMAD Tile wallet
The HISSIMO wallet, front pocket to be exact, is a competent bifold, with all the usual features, but is incredibly inexpensive. Made with the usual amount of RFID material and genuine leather, it’s still a great value for the price.
Designed and made in Mexico, the Lo Esencial Bifold Wallet 2 provides strong construction for longevity and easy usability while providing an aesthetically pleasing design and presentation.
Low volume leather makers product some of the best wallets in the world and the One Star Leather wallet offerings push into that level. The 6 pocket horizontal wallet with its half-open top provides great access with excellent usability.
Down to earth crafted, Mr. Lentz wallet is made to last, simply made to outlast you. Made from one piece of leather and secured with brass rivets, the elegance of the design makes this an easy wallet to handle and enjoy.
This is a crazy review because the Anson Calder Bifold Coin wallet is 1) discontinued, 2) super expensive for what you get (which is probably why it was discontinued at $135) and 3) not practical…who wants to carry just cards and coins?
Like all Saddleback wallet’s, they use full grain leather including a wonderful pig skin liner.
The Flipside 4 wallet is a polycarbonate (hard plastic) wallet with a spring opening and several card slots with cash capabilities. It’s fun to use, but is it really useful in day to day carry? Seems large for a convenient carry, but it grows on you.
The recently released Aurochs Gravity wallet has been redone to incorporate many new features along with reinforcements in build and more style. Made of superb full grain veg tanned leather from South East Asia, it provides a great alternative to similar wallets which cost much more.
Building on the successful “sleeve” line, Bellroy has launched a Designer Edition line. For the Slim Sleeve, which is my favorite, they’ve increased the leather quality, construction and design elements. This is a home run, but the cost may be a detractor.
Using Italian full grain veg tanned leather (or so we think), this wallet feels like it has two separate billfold pockets, but it’s a card wallet on steroids with 2 ID slots and 6 separate card slots. If you’re a card and receipt hound, this wallet is for you
Wingback’s Cash wallet is perfect for someone who likes to carry loads of notes. It can carry up to 20 slips of cash, which is excellent. It has an internal card slot which suits the minimalist if you’re looking to carry less than 6 cards, but anything more and you’ll be wanting. As is the case with all Wingback products, quality, customer service and ethos are excellent.
Soft, roomy, and easy to use, the Delanora bifold wallet from Brazil shows how a full grain veg tanned leather can act when done right.
Unfortunately, the TUMI Desoto doesn’t seem to be available for sale any longer, but this bright carbon fiber designed blue is full of capacity and is durable. Made of all man-made materials, it’s not the type of wallet you’d expect to be awesome, but it is.
There’s nothing super special about the Serman 1.S wallet, it’s a version of many wallets you can find out there, including the money clip, which is the traditional spring-loaded type. But tried and true can also mean reliable, so if you’re looking for a wallet that isn’t fancy and doesn’t have crazy design unique, this will work.
When I bought it I thought, “oh, another simple billfold wallet…”. Wow was I wrong. The simplicity is actually elegance, wrapped in fine-tuned engineering, finished with decades of craftsmanship. Every millimeter of this wallet has been rethought over dozens of times over the years to reach this level of usability, quality and near perfection. Sometimes the most fabulous things are the simplest.
Adding wonderful leather to the existing Armor Summit wallet frame, the Trayvax Summit Wallet adds a tried and true Fisher Bullet pen to a small notebook to provide something capable of jotting some ideas down on. But does the size make all the extra bulk worth it?
Almost a complete rethink on the materials and construction processes, the new Ekster 3.0 Parliament ups the game for reliable and long-lasting box wallets. With an fully anodized aluminum box and with the trigger being made from one piece of material, it’s smoother, sturdy and it looks great! Combine that with a slimmer tracker card and you’re getting to where your vision of this type of wallet has always been.
Made from innovative material, SlimFold’s Micro Soft Shell wallet is a minimalists dream, with amazing capacity.
IKEPOD’s Slim Carry wallet is a mashup of a couple Bellroy’s wallets, but is it better? When you find out the price, you’ll begin to understand why it’s at least something to look at.
Another finely crafted wallet from Aurochs in Pakistan. Made of full-grain veg tanned leather from southeast Asian tanneries, the cut, fit, sewing and finish of the Nova puts it head and shoulders above Bellroy’s competitive offerings. With great card slot features and a killer price, you have to add this to your collection.
Made from beautiful feeling and smelling Italian Buttero leather, Das Offene Meer’s Nimitz Gun Deck wallet is as much a piece of art as it is a fully functional wallet. With plenty of card and cash slots, it’s capacity matches its footprint.
Made from one piece of full grain veg tanned Tuscan Italian leather in London, and sewn with your chosen color, this expertly crafted card and cash minimalist wallet is clever. It’s barely the size of a card, but can hold up to 10 of them plus cash. And the smell? It’ll keep you so happy you’ll wonder why you didn’t get one of these sooner.
The Slim Sleeve is a very compact and easy to use bifold wallet from Bellroy, the leather and construction look solid, and it feels and smells nice. But for $79 can it live up to daily carry needs?
