The BEST wallet for me.
November 13, 2022
The L-Shape is an awesome design. I replaced and old one I have had for years. They hold up well and carry a huge number of cards, secret pockets for stashing your big bills. I would highly recommend this wallet if you need to carry several credit cards and other similar size cards.
Pros Bill fold has a divider. So you separate money.
ConsNone that i have observed

An amazing wallet that is completely worth the price
July 22, 2022
I purchased one of these wallets back in 2016. Now, 6 years later (2022) this wallet has no issues (torn seams, holes, etc) other than signs of wear. Even though it still works perfectly fine, I decided to treat myself with an upgrade, so I purchased the L-shape RFID blocking wallet. I'll review that one once I've had a chance to use it.
Pros+Two large pockets for bills, each separated by a divider. This lets me sort my cash appropriately, with small bills in one pocket, and large bills in the other. +Two ID pockets (clear): one for my driver's license, one for my work ID. +Seven other pockets: I use these to hold various credit and membership cards. +Workmanship is amazing: 6 years later and the wallet has no issues, other than signs of wear.
ConsI only carry one wallet. The wallets by BigSkinny are so nice it's tempting to buy more than one needs. Maybe I'll carry another one as a decoy or something....

When I purchased my first one 15+years ago, the guy told me, you will never buy another wallet in your life and I said, you don't me. well, he would have been right if I wasn't in the roofing business. but I wore out lots of jean pockets and finely the wallet. so, I googled Big Skinny and was surprised that you still sold the same one. so, I purchased another one! you're right they will last a lifetime just wear then in your front pocket if you're a roofer. I used to change my wallet every year till a got a big skinny THE BEST!

My husband started using it almost immediately

I purchased this wallet for my husband, he usually delays using a gift for at least weeks. It really shocked me that he transferred his items from his almost 40 year old wallet into this one only 2 days after Christmas! I have used one of your wallets for over 20 years and I have loved it.

Love The "L-Shape" Wallet!
December 20, 2021
I bought my third one back in September at The Big E in West Springfield, MA and just moved all my stuff into it from the previous one. It was several years old and pretty worn out, just like it's predecessor. They last a real long time and are very comfortable to carry all day long. The photos are of my old wallet after I emptied it. Pretty beat, but it still worked!
Pros* Comfortable to carry, no "break-in" required * Carries everything I need * Sweatproof * Dual clear ID holders, 1 for drivers license, one for FD ID Badge * Carries paper money without money sticking out
ConsCan't really think of any

My husband is so happy with his BIg Skinny. We 1st discovered your product at a county fair 7 years ago. His wallet was beginning to show some wear & we happily found you online. I did accidentally order wrong product (he wanted leather) but this is fine & we’ll place correct order soon. I’m considering ordering the womens wallet too. It’s amazing how compact your wallets are. Thanks for offering great quality at reasonable prices.

Great small wallet
November 27, 2021
I bought one of your wallets years ago per my daughter in law. I was looking for something small just to hold DL. CC & maybe a little cash. I found my little purple wallet. Couple years later we were at a outdoor market, & I bought a bigger purple wallet. I bought my husband the L-shape, he likes it. Great little wallets
ProsSmall but holds lots without the bulge

My old L shape was made of leather but I guess you don't make em like you use to.
Merchant Response:Hi Robert, Thank you for your review :) We still have them available in our usual great Top-Grain Cowhide Leather (perhaps they were sold out at the time) they are our top seller. They are back in stock now :)

Ordering my 3rd one
April 7, 2021
I originally got this at a motorcycle convention many years ago. I worn that one out, and bought another, also at a big bike show. I also picked up a passport holder, that is quite well traveled and still looks brand new. Now, alas, I am thinking that I need to buy another wallet for everyday use, as this one is starting, starting mind you, to show some wear. These 2 wallets have lasted over 20 years combined. They are in my jeans pocket every day, all day. I'm a plumber, so I can attest to the durability of these wallets. I will continue to use and love these wallets. I will continue to recommend these wallets. It's simply a well made product that is convenient and long lasting. What's not to like ? Well, the price has DEFINITELY gone up. Still worth it though.

Great trim wallet that holds a lot of stuff. Very durable too. I have various styles of your other wallets and they are the same fantastic quality. Your variety of styles are all very well designed. They hold a lot and are very slim and trim.
ProsWell made. Very slim but holds a lot.

Finally, a Perfect Wallet!
November 6, 2020
I've been a Big Skinny fan for years and have been trying to get my husband to try one. I stopped sending him the emails and asking if he'd like me to order one for him, and just did it! His old, leather wallet was so heavy and bulky that he desperately needed to streamline his billfold. I ordered the same style L-shape he favors in his favorite color brown and hoped for the best. In short, he actually liked it better than the one he'd been using for years. He was surprised that such a lightweight wallet could hold so much and still be relatively unnoticed in his pants pocket ( cargo pants pockets as well). He is now a convert and happily carries your amazing wallet wondering why he didn't take my advice sooner. As for myself, I own a different style in red and one in black. I've had them for YEARS, and they look and perform like new. Thank you for making such a great product!!

I love the L shape wallet. It has a place for all my cards with easy access to the different cards. It is light weight and is as slim as possible. Big Skinny makes great wallets. This is my fourth Big Skinny. I didn't need to replace the previous ones because they last well, hold their shape and continue to fulfill their purpose. I just wanted to try something different, with a different look and color. They are well made and high quality.
ProsSlim, light weight, dry quickly when they get wet, plenty of pockets for cards

I just cannot believe how such slim wallet can hold the stuff I normally carry. In fact the wallet is thin I have to repeatedly check to see if I still have it. Awesome!

This is my second skinny wallet to purchase! They are excellent an last long! My husband loves how its not bulky... he had it for about 7 yrs an we just got him the same one again for Fathers Day to replace the one he had.
ConsWish more colors in the L shape wallet
So thin!
June 29, 2020
I love this wallet, it holds so many cards, and it's so thin. I only wish they would make it traditional hipster that has about 7 spots up each side. I also love the wide card slots, allowing cards in and out easy Yet the cards still don't fall out.

I had this wallet before and really liked it! After years of use it fell apart and so I looked in a store for a regular wallet the same size. I found one... except it wasn’t skinny! It was FAT in my pocket! After about a year, it started coming apart! So, I came back to another BigSkinny wallet and I’ll never have a different kind again!!!
ProsSize! Material - dries out fast if it gets wet! Ease of use.

This is my second Big Skinny. Had my first for 10 years or so. Still in good shape but I changed from leather to fabric and this new one is even more comfortable in my pocket and easily contains all I need to carry in my wallet. Please don't ever stop making them as they will forever be my wallet of choice.

This is my 2nd wallet - I kinda ... didn't look after the 1st one (had it for nearly 8 years) and since I like no bulk wallets, I went to Big Skinny straight away - no brainer

Skinny but hard to use
March 5, 2020
The wallet is thin and light weight but getting cash in and out is tough. The ends of the cash sections are too tight and I spend too long trying to cram the cash back into the wallet when I’m standing in line after getting cash back.
ProsThin Light weight Card access is easy
ConsGetting cash in and out of the sections for cash is almost never easy.

Was trying to decide on a new wallet. Friends have a different style but figured I'd try this one. I've gotten about 90% of what I had in my old wallet in this one. Great quality. just wish the areas for money were slightly bigger.

ConsSmall area for money.

Been using Big Skinny wallets for years. Love them. Mine developed a hole in it from carrying spare truck key. New one doesn’t have the key holder in the bill compartment so I slid it inside with the cards I carry.
Merchant Response:Hi Ed, Thank you for your review! How big is the truck key? Perhaps you might like to try one of our wallets with a zippered pocket [Executive Front Pocket style, Plus Size MyPhone Wallet, World Wallet w Zipper, Traveler, etc.] ? or full perimeter zip Zippered Bi-Fold :) At your earliest convenience, please contact our customer service team at service@bigskinny.com or 617.500.6939 and they'll be happy to work with you on finding a style that better suits your needs.

My Favorite Wallet But They Changed It :-(
January 6, 2020
I am on my third Big Skinny L-shaped (BSL) wallet. This wallet was created specifically for me! It has the right number of pockets for the minimum necessary cards I keep with me, and the right number of ID windows. When it's fully loaded is just as thin as some empty wallets in the market. In the attached photo you can see my old BSL on the left and my new one on the right. On this last one I purchased the shape of the card pockets changed. Before they had a V-cut, now they are straight cut. The straight cut added to the depth of the pockets can make accessing the cards a little more difficult. Big Skinny, PLEASE BRING BACK THE V-CUT CARD POCKETS!

Merchant Response:Dear Nelson, Thank you for your feedback! We made the pockets straight across for better security at keeping the cards in place. We will take your suggestion into consideration because many others have asked for the return of the V pocket as well. Thank you again for your review, BigSkinny
ProsPerfect men's wallet design.
ConsThe change of the card pockets from V-cut to straight.
By Dick
The best wallet!

Wallets can be a problem but the Skinny L-Shape Wallet is fantastic. I am able to carry all of my necessary cards, ID, etc. very comfortably and without totally deforming my rear pocket. I even bought another one for my son.

I wish I would have purchased this wallet 3 or 4 years ago when I first saw it at the Ann Arbor Art Fair. I highly recommend this wallet. Lots of pockets, great quality and it really does feel like a SKINNY wallet, even with lots of credit cards in it. I liked it so much I bought one for my dad for Christmas (he got it early December) and he likes it a lot, too!

Small but Lumpy
December 12, 2019
I would not recommend as it is not Skinny. Because of the fold over feature its lumpy & thick. My original model was truly skinny. I cannot find that original model now.
Merchant Response:Dear Harry, Thank you for your feedback! My bet is that your original wallet was either our Compact Sport Wallet or our classic Multi Pocket Bi-Fold. They only fold once that allow for a slimmer profile :) At your earliest convenience, please contact our customer service team at service@bigskinny.com or 617.500.6939 and they'll be happy to work with you on finding a style that better suits your needs. Thank you, BigSkinny
