Review - Big Skinny Tri-Fold Wallet and Taxicat Bi-Fold Wallet

Rate this post

Big Skinny WalletsMy husband has to be the pickiest man alive when it comes to carrying a wallet!  First of all, he absolutely HATES carrying anything, which is why my purse is usually busting at the seams when we go anywhere.  Of course, he's accepted the fact that he does have to carry a wallet in order to keep his cash, credit cards and driver's license with him.

As long as I've known him (which is over 11 years), he's been on the eternal quest to find the absolute thinnest wallet around.  So of course, when I heard about Big Skinny Corp., which claims to make the world's thinnest, smallest and lightest wallets, I just had to learn more!  Keep reading to find out if their wallets passed the toughest test I husband!

I reviewed the Tri-Fold Wallet with Vertical Pockets in Black, which retails for $24.95, and the Taxicat Bi-Fold Wallet in Smokey Teal from Big Skinny Corporation, which retails for $23.95.

Big Skinny sent me the Tri-Fold Wallet with Vertical Pockets in Black and the Taxicat Bi-Fold Wallet in Smokey Teal for my husband and I to try and boy, was I amazed at how thin these wallet were!  These wallets were made of durable, water-resistant nylon microfiber which is part of why they are so thin.  Big Skinny also carries leather hybrid wallets made from top-grain leather and nylon microfiber too, if you prefer the leather look on the outside.

Big Skinny wallets also contain extra-wide pockets which are designed to hold 4 or more cards.  These extra-wide pockets serve two purposes.  First, if you only have one pocket to hold 4 cards instead of 4 pockets, you use less material which means that your wallet is less bulky.  Second, these extra-wide pockets also make it easier for you to get your cards in and out of your wallet.  Finally, Big Skinny wallets are even tough enough to machine wash!  Now, that's one tough, skinny wallet!

Big Skinny even includes a handy business card in their wallets with a place to write down important phone numbers.  This way, you can toss all those tiny pieces of paper and/or business cards, which just add more bulk to your wallet.  It really seems like they've thought of everything!

So, did it pass the Michael test?  I'm happy to say that it did!  Michael was able to put all of his credit cards, cash, IDs etc. in his new Big Skinny wallet and was so very pleased at how small and compact everything was in his pocket.  If you're looking to carry maximum stuff in a minimum space, then I highly suggest checking out the many different wallet styles from Big Skinny.  The Big Skinny wallets satisfied one tough customer and I'm sure you will be thrilled with them too!
