Today we are going to review the top five bifolds of 2019 as reviewed by Walletopia.

The following constitute the top five wallets of 2019. We have the Mitchell leather money clip wallet, the Rareform Highland, the Allett Ultra Slim ID, the Dela Nora slim and the Tumi Gusseted wallet. Please understand there are no price limitations on this. This is just whatever we reviewed during 2019 and is not a one-to-one comparison, but a review of the top rated bifold wallets for their final Walletopian score. Each will strike you differently based on your likes and dislikes, but you can be assured that all of these wallets are excellent in their own way.
From a price perspective, the Mitchell is $79, the Rareform Highland $24, the Allett Ultra Slim is $30, the DelaNora is $40, and the Tumi Gusseted is $70. As you can see, the pricing did not mean that the higher priced wallets were better quality. It was driven by the final score, and sometimes higher priced wallets would get a lower score on price, because the value to price isn’t quite in balance.
As for card capacity. The Mitchell held six cards in our test and the company has no recommendation on how many cards it can handle. The Rareform held seven cards with no company recommendation on how many they say it can hold. However, I think it can hold a lot more than that. The Allett Ultra Slim held ten cards. The company indicates it can hold up to twelve cards. This wallet can swallow cards and still look very slim. The DelaNora held eight cards and the company recommends four to eight. I think that is kind of conservative. It could take more if you wanted it to. The Tumi Gusseted held fifteen cards. The company doesn’t recommend any particular number, but I really think it has the capacity to hold a lot more.
Let’s look at the sizes of each of these. The Mitchell is 4.25 x 3 x 0.2”, the Rareform, 4.25 x 3.25 x 0.5”. The Allett Ultra Slim, 4.13 x 3.3 x 0.2”. The DelaNora, 4 x 3.3 x 0.2”, and the Tumi Gusseted at 4 x 3 x 0.5”.
As for the weight of the wallets, sometimes that tells us some things about the quality of the material that is used, but ultimately it helps you understand how heavy this is going to be in your pocket. The Mitchell is 43 grams. The Rareform is 47 grams and is made out of recycled billboard material. The Allett is 19 grams and is really light and thin. The DelaNora is 51 grams, because there is a lot of leather, and the Tumi is 42 grams.
With that, let’s look at how all of these wallets compared in their overall scores during the course of the year when they were reviewed. The Mitchell is on top with a final score of 42, Rareform 41, the Allett and DelaNora tied at 40, and then Tumi at 39. You can tell that both quality and price help drive a lot of the scoring for these wallets, as well as features and usability. Perception drove some of those things as well. And there you go. That is a review of this year’s 2019 top five bifold wallets.
