Bifold Wallet Reviews
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?
One of the most unique materials we’ve reviewed in a wallet, the wood and cork wallet is surprisingly flexible and durable. Carried as a slim wallet, it’s a talking piece that smells wonderful.
Bellroy put great thought and design time into the Hide & Seek wallet. Providing a second billfold pocket and card slot cleverly hidden behind the first, it’s a great way to keep cash, coin or cards out of the spotlight. But with everything else in the wallet, is there really a need to “hide” things that create more bulk?
Allett’s wallets maintain a design ethos that ensures you can put loads of things in the wallet and it feels like it’s still thin. Amazing. Check out how this nylon ripstop fabric can change your wallet carry habits.
Abrasus’ bifold wallet mashes up cash, currency and coins in a thin bifold wallet. The attention to design detail to keep it thin creates a cool talking point, and the high quality construction and materials will ensure it will last a long time. But with only a 5 card capacity in comparison to 15 slips of cash and 15 coins, is that a reasonable balance?
Passport sleeves are a hit and miss thing, but Bellroy’s mixes all the right notes. With the ability to carry cash along with boarding passes and cards, its mini pen makes it the perfect offering when you’re traveling internationally.
The faux leather is hard to detect in Travando’s RIO wallet. With an attractive 2 color combination and integrated money clip, it provides options for those who are looking for a non-leather alternative. Its card capacity and ability to easily handle foreign currency is also a plus.

Pop-up card wallets are ubiquitous, but 10 years ago Secrid invented the design that would spawn a million knockoff’s. The Secrid Original Cardprotector wallet is where it all started. While it’s still top of the heap for quality of mechanism, there are concerns with the exterior design that hampers its ability to compete in an ever evolving wallet world!
There are many leather bifold wallet out there, but few clear the hurdle of making materials and construction top priority. The Baurdi Aviator wallet meets that high bar and goes further. The leather, tanning process, sewing detail and finish stand out.
For those looking for a more traditional bifold with amazing capacity, features and more, the Fossil Coin Pocket wallet is your choice. While very large and not something you could carry in your front pocket, if you need to carry a lot, this genuine leather wallet will meet needs.
