I had 4 major criteria when wallet shopping, and I couldn't believe how hard it was to find a wallet that met them all. I thought i'd find one in minutes but it took hours!
1) made well (no super cheap zippers, no plastic credit card holder booklet - are you kidding me with those)
2) be slim and fit easily into the small pockets we suffer with on most women's jeans/pants
3) have small zipper area for coins (and for musicians like me, a spare pair of earplugs and a guitar pick!)
4) have an ID window for quick presentation
Again, I didn't think this would be that hard, but so many wallets didn't have one of these things. they'd have a flap/button arrangement for the coin area - and that adds a lot of bulk. They'd have no ID window. They wouldn't have a separate place for cash and coins. They would be made so cheaply that half the reviews said the zipper broke in a week. They'd be too long or too fat for little jean pockets. So yeah I kept striking out and a friend told me to look up Big Skinny and I am SO GLAD I DID. The wallet meets all the criteria, seems very well made (the material is fairly indestructible and the stitching seems good). And, it fits in the tiny pockets on women's pants.
I'm super happy with this wallet and recommend it to anyone who doesn't care about having a fancy leather designer thing and just wants something slim (it's only 1/2" thick even with cash and cards in it, a little more when i cram earplugs and guitar picks into it, but not much!).
Some more benefits - the cash area is the perfect size - no need to fold bills, but not too long so cash will slip out easily - it's in there! Also, the credit card slots can all hold 2 cards easily, so the 6 slots available for cards really can be 10-12. It's also really easy to remove and replace cards in the slots too, but if i hold the wallet upside and shake it, they don't fall out either. It's freaking kicka$$. I was so frustrated when wallet shopping and I'm glad Big Skinny understands me. I'll probably marry this wallet. Thanks for reading!
Great little wallet! I had one very similar to this 20 years ago and wore it out because it was so perfect. Other reviews said that with only 1 card in a slot, the card was loose - not in my experience. I shook the wallet upside-down and tried to flick the cards out, but they held strong! I am bummed that it appears there are multiple small holes in the fabric, I would exchange it but I wanted it for an upcoming trip. I would have given 5 stars if the holes/snags weren't there...I hope they aren't signs of a weakness in the fabric.
After trying this wallet out I returned it and bought something else. I don't know why they say this holds up to 25 cards, there are only slots for 4 or 5. I guess you could put more than one card in each slot, but no way is this wallet going to hold more than maybe 10. Length is the same as most mini wallets, but it's shorter in terms of height. American dollar bills fit okay, but most standard receipts are 3 inches wide and these don't fit in the bill compartment without folding them in half lenghtwise, which is a pain. You would also have to fold any foreign currency larger than a dollar bill lengthwise to fit it in the bill compartment. I found it hard to get the clasp to close. Wallet material itself seemed sturdy enough, no fraying at the seam during the brief time I owned it.
I've been using the Big Skinny wallet now for almost over 4-5 years. This is my second one. Replaced the last one after 3+ years. Sturdy, thin, lightweight, serves its stated purpose well. I personally hate big wallets, so this is wonderful for me. Also, I love having the change pocket in the back. Trust me, having a change pocket will save you money over time. You'd be surprised. I expect to continue to buy this wallet every 3-4 years. Why do I need to update it? The fabric gets stretched ever so slightly. So overtime, I do find the cards are not as securely staying put. But considering all the positives, it's a small price to pay. I also mitigate it by putting in multiple cards in slots. It's pretty easily fixable.
Received my Taxi-cat Bi-Fold wallet yesterday and like it very much so far. I was using a very nice smaller sized leather wallet that fit my needs but it was still bulkier than the Taxi-cat. I have small hands and this new wallet is so lightweight and slim it fits me much better. Currently have 7 cards in it; my drivers license, 2 gas cards, bank card, major credit card, AAA card and library card. It would hold more but I don't like a stuffed wallet and keep my store credit cards in a zippered pocket in my purse. The Ocean Blue color is very nice. The only reason I did not give this five stars is the coin section - it's too small to be of much use. I put my coins in a small change purse which just makes me carry something else in my purse. I may order another one as a back-up if it continues to work out like I think it will. Oh, I did not notice any strong odor on my wallet; had to put it right up to my nose to notice any type of smell at all.
I think this is the best wallet I have owned. Its slim and doesn't take up too much room in my purse. In addition, because its so slim, when I travel, I am able to fit this into the inside zip compartment of my purse for extra security.
Its holds enough cards, the important ones. The few cards that I rarely use but like to have with me, I put in the inside zip of my purse rather than my wallet.
After my last credit card was sent to me and it had a chip, to protect it, I took a piece of aluminum foil and carefully folded it in half and cut it the approx size of a dollar bill, or maybe a bit larger. I then put it in the bill section of the wallet. Then when the wallet is closed, the foil is on either side with the credit card slots in the middle of the wallet and protects against thieves looking to steal info from the chips. So instead of buying another wallet that was RFID protected, I just easily adapted this one.
i highly recommend this wallet. Its well made, slim and functions well.
Not sure why Big Skinny describe this as a women's wallet. Unisex would be a better description. I love it.
Very compact and easy to keep on me
I'm tempted to remove one star for putting a gender on this wallet but I find myself secure enough in my gender to give this wallet five stars. I've been ripping up my breast pocket in suit after suit from shoving a wallet in there, and walked around my entire life with a giant lump over my heart where my wallet was. But no longer! This holds everything I had in my old wallet and is so sleight. Bonus points for being vegan.
I’ve been using the Taxicat wallet for over 8 years and I absolutely love it. There is no other wallet for me. It is slim, durable and the perfect size for pockets or purses. Highly recommend.
Las mejores carteras que puedes encontrar. Nunca siquiera considero ya otra marca
Great wallet...amazing how many cards you can add to wallet.
Only set back...it took too much time to arrive.
4-5 weeks...should have option to send it faster way
I like that it was nylon but was disappointed with the size, it is very small not big & skinny as described.
Description very misleading
Love this small wallet that holds a lot. I would highly recommend.
This is a nicely thin wallet that fits into tight spaces!
