Best Thin Minimalistic Wallets


It has been two decades now since the prevailing mentality of the eighties, which was to own everything in excess. But we have since moved on to adopt a more purpose-driven, minimalistic attitude towards our life choices, even down to the elementary commodities that we purchase.

Of course, among these commodities are wallets. They used to be fat, sophisticated leather pouches that took up an often uncomfortable amount of space in your back pocket. But now a new design is fast growing in popularity. The slim wallet is a smaller, minimal and altogether more sophisticated substitute for the traditional design. It slides into pockets and remains barely noticeable. It encourages you to efficiently manage your money and cards and affords you a lot more protection against hazards like electronic pickpocketing.

There are many slim wallets on sale in today’s market, all of which are very attractive substitutes for the traditional fat wallet they seek to replace. But which one is best for you? To find out, we have assembled a list of 13 slim wallets which we believe to be some of the very best that you can buy right now. All of them offer an impeccable standard of design, efficiency and safety. All that is really left to do is factor in your personal preferences as customer and pick out the closest match.

Bellroy Hide and Seek Wallet

Why We Like It: Super slim on the outside and amply spacious on the inside, it is also spot on with the styling.

Editor’s rating:

The aptly named Bellroy Hide and Seek contains everything you will need in a wallet. It is cleverly designed with super slim pockets and remains a beautiful thing to behold and just hold. It will accommodate cards and bills with ease and has a way of separating your frequently used items from those that are not always needed. Other clever tricks will help you store away a fat load of cash in discreet, unassuming fashion, and with a high level of security.

A uniquely designed covered compartment will help you conceal those large bills pretty effectively. The flat-pack storage section will accommodate extra cards without the imposition of extra leather. RFID protection comes as standard. But not everything about this wallet is brand new. It still follows the simple bi-fold design principle that has been around for so many years, but it is slimmer now, and consequently a lot more comfortable. It is meant for customers who have simple tastes and an appreciation for tradition.

Serman Brands Wallet

Why We Like It: Features the impressive RFID blocking chip for safety and maintains a thickness of just 0.4 inches.

Editor’s rating:

The value of a product goes up immediately when it claims to be made with handcrafted top grain leather. Enter: the Serman Brands wallet, a handcrafted leather work of art for the ages that is about as fat as a modern smartphone. So now you will not feel as if your wallet is an annoying tumor growing on your butt. It is less than half an inch thick, so it will easily pass as part of your own skin.

Of course, with something made that slim, you might be wondering how you will manage to fit all your valuables in there. But we have to say it manages this problem quite elegantly. It has a slot for accommodating your credit card. There are more slots available to store away photo IDs and additional cards. As for your bills, there is a simple clip to hold them together. But perhaps the most outstanding feature about this wallet is its RFID blocking chip, capable of blocking RFID signals at 13.56MHz and beyond.

Vaultskin Chelsea Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: Intelligently designed to be both safe and convenient to use every day. Gift ideas, anyone?

Editor’s rating:

This manufacturer has spent many years working with RFID technology so it knows how to safeguard your credit card from electronic pickpocketing. Just take care to store them in the larger inside pocket so they will not be read. Safety is one of the greatest benefits that can be enjoyed with this wallet, but there are also other benefits that will satisfy you even more. Material-wise, Chelsea is one of the best products in the business, using rich Italian leather that is both soft and grippy and just lovely to the touch.

As for the design, it is intuitive, refined, and very stylish. There is a smart strap included which allows you to access your cards relatively quickly and without too much fumbling. It is an elastic apparatus that retracts automatically once you let it go. Also, it is held in place by a magnet, so it does not intrude when it is not needed. All things considered, this is a wallet fit for men of all ages, and is easily one of the most beautiful.


Mutbak Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: Definitely one of the nicest pieces of leather you will ever hold and is guaranteed to last a very long time.

Editor’s rating:

The Mutbak slim wallet claims to use only the finest quality leather available and after reviewing it, we certainly feel that their claim is valid. The leather is full grain, brilliantly stitched together, and guaranteed to last a very long time. And from there on, its features keep getting more and more impressive. This wallet is not just slim, it is SUPER slim with a thickness of just 0.375 inches. And yet, it somehow manages to house up to 8 credit cards and 10 currency bills.

Slot it into your jeans and you really will not notice that it is there, but once you reach in and pull it out, you will be reminded of how good it feels in your hand. Safety is another strong point with this wallet. It features the RFID/NFC blocking material, which is a flexible metallic infused fabric. In keeping with its long-standing durability claims, this wallet also comes with a solid year’s worth of warranty, during which it may be fully replaced if it happens to underperform by any means.

Dapper Hide Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: Made from some of the finest full grain leather in the world and maintains an epic 0.2-inch width.

Editor’s rating:

A major design trait and selling point for slim wallets is minimalism, a sense that there is absolutely nothing provided in excess, that every part is functional and necessary. Not only is this instrumental for maintaining a slim profile, it also happens to be the style of the future. Although we are a bit hesitant to admit it, regular wallets tend to have more space than we need. The Dapper Hide slim wallet is not your average wallet.

It is all about efficient management of your cards and cash. It will take some getting used to at first, but once you are through, you are guaranteed to get that sweet satisfaction of progress. It is a luxury product too, made entirely from full grain leather that is soft and lush to the touch. As for thickness, you are probably thinking that half an inch is plenty to impress, but no. As it turns out, this wallet comes out way slimmer, just 0.2 inches! That is enough for just 3 cards and 8 bills but hey, that is kind of the point.

HUSKK Minimalist Wallet

Why We Like It: An incredibly slim thing for your front pocket that still manages enough space for 10 cards and a handy number of bills.

Editor’s rating:

If you are looking for an expertly crafted slim wallet that efficiently manages space and employs proven security tactics, here is a very strong candidate to consider: the Huskk minimalist wallet. It sports a design developed in London and is crafted from full grain leather, which makes it durable, flexible, and timeless in beauty. Even though it maintains a slim profile, there is plenty of space as well as security to go around for all your essential cards and bills.

In addition to a decent number of currency bills, this wallet is also enough to accommodate 10 cards. But it still manages to remain slim enough to fit in your front pocket. Plus, you will have no trouble picking the card you want on your first attempt thanks to an intuitive pull-tab, which gives you immediate access to all your cards. Security is a high priority here. The wallet is made of a special fabric for blocking off RFID signals.


Urban Tribe Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: What could be cooler than sporting some carbon fiber in your everyday wallet?

Editor’s rating:

With normal wallets still a prevalent choice in the market, slim wallets tend to strike us as unusual at first. But even in the company of slim wallets, the Urban Tribe manages to stand out. After all, how many other slim wallet holders out there can claim that they have a carbon fiber wallet? That’s right folks, the Urban Tribe slim wallet features carbon fiber in addition to leather in its construction. So it is a definite no-brainer that it is extremely tough and durable, almost to an absurd degree.

Space is not too generous but still enough for everyday use. There are slots reserved for a day’s expenditure of currency bills (around 15) and around 5 cards as well. Embedded in the money clip is an RFID blocking chip to keep the information of credit and debit cards from falling into the wrong hands. Compared to safety measures offered by a traditional wallet, there is simply no comparison. Plus, it remains slim enough to slide easily into one of your front pockets.

SimpacX Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: Bi-fold design affords a generous amount of storage space while maintaining an exceptionally slim profile.

Editor’s rating:

Even with its bi-fold design, the SimpacX is thin even by slim wallet standards. The obvious benefit of having a bi-fold design is that you get even more storage space than you otherwise would have. In fact, the whole thing is littered with design features that make it very convenient and efficient to use on a daily basis. It also contains the latest technology for keeping up safety and privacy. And of course, how could we forget the sweet leather that it is made of?

At the front of the wallet is a quick access feature intended for your most frequent need, a window to showcase any identification. The maximum number of cards you can store here is 10 and all of them will be protected by RFID blocking technology, which is effective from 13.56MHz and upwards. The full-grain leather on the SimpacX is comforting to touch but is also quite tough, enough for a good, long lifespan. It also looks like a classic.

Hammer Anvil Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: Incredibly safe on all the cards you place in it and sells at a delightfully reasonable rate.

Editor’s rating:

In addition to all the usual assets which can be expected from a slim wallet – safety, efficiency, appearance and so on – you can also expect the Hammer Anvil slim wallet to be a fairly cost-efficient replacement for whatever wallet you had before it. And it does not skimp on any of the gains contained by its more expensive competitors. The design is highly minimalized and accomplished in genuine leather. And that feeling never gets old however much you hold it.

The design features 3 card slots on each side, 6 in total, and one sizeable packet in the middle for your currency bills. Also, it is the perfect size for fitting seamlessly into almost any pocket. And it is a real bad boy when it comes to security. It is RFID protected and has an anti-breach technology TM at its disposal, which will keep your information out of the wrong hands at all times. No amount of wireless readers will break through the safety barrier.


BASICS Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: A lifetime warranty speaks volumes about the durability of this wallet. It is also incredibly slim and easy to use.

Editor’s rating:

The BASICS slim wallet really does live up to its name. It is about as basic a wallet as you can find. It is also absolutely handy. It has room for cash, cards, and even keys. Plus, you can choose from a wider range of colors than would be available with most other slim wallets. There is also one other problem with slim wallets that this one addresses, that of being either slim or easy to access, but not both at the same time.

The BASICS wallet however, does offer both these assets for your convenience. It also has a good sense of organization about it. Its pull tab technology presents you with 4 of your most frequently used cards with a simple pull. Altogether, it can hold as many as 15 cards and still look slim and beautiful. It is also built to last, with the use of genuine leather, medical grade elastic and double stitching, ensuring that it stays together for years on end. Warranty is for life!

Alpine Swiss Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: Choosing this one not only helps you gain a splendid slim wallet but will also go towards helping someone in need.

Editor’s rating:

If you have been going through this list up till now and have wondered where on earth the Swiss have been this whole time, the search is finally over. The brand name already lends so much value to the product, but it is still a formidable competitor in its own right. As expected of any slim wallet, it completely saves your lower back the discomfort of sitting on the traditional fat wallet in your back pocket. It also oozes style like a tilted bowl of double cream.

Its standout features include multiple pockets for credit cards and a strong magnet money clip. You can also pick one from a generous selection of colors, so it can be equally befitting for both men and women. It has an ID window as well. What’s more, part of your investment will go toward the daily provision of at least 2500 meals for children in need all over the world as part of an effort by the Children’s Hunger Fund.

Kinzd Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: Carries on the great tradition of beautiful, hand-stitched leather craftsmanship and offers complete protection from credit card exploitation.

Editor’s rating:

And we are back to good old genuine leather and stitching of the highest quality. While aluminum may be the better functioning material in the long run, we reckon that leather still is and always will be the defining material used to make wallets, both fat and slim. The Kinzd slim wallet is just another prized statistic of that great tradition. Its fabric is tender to the touch but at the same time, you can sense that it is not easily prone to wear and tear.

All of its edges are well oiled in order to prevent any fraying. While it maintains an incredibly slim profile, its intelligent design makes the most of the limited surface area to accommodate an ample supply of bills and cards. Not even an ID window has been overlooked. It will slide unassumingly and conveniently into your front pocket. And in the interests of safety, this slim wallet has RFID blocking technology to keep your cards immune to electronic pickpocketing.

ROCO Slim Wallet

Why We Like It: We totally dig its forward-looking design and insane carrying capacity.

Editor’s rating:

The ROCO slim wallet is possibly the most futuristic looking item on the list. All it takes is one look to see what we are on about. Heck, it looks like an item the X-men would use. Do not let your kid get any ideas. Its post-modern appearance is mostly explained by the materials used to make it. Forget the full grain leather we are used to seeing, this slim wallet has graduated to using even tougher, longer lasting materials.

As you may have gathered from its appearance, the ROCO is made from high-grade aluminum with a flexible silicone band. And it appears to have been an improvement since this wallet can carry up to 20 cards and 20 bills, tops. That is a serious capacity given its size. Also, it is entirely RFID defended to keep all those credit and debit cards in total safety. We bet you will be proud to whip out this wallet every time you are stuck with the bill.
