I ordered the RFID Blocking Bi-fold for my husband and he is very pleased with this product. We traveled overseas recently and the bifold worked well, streamlined all the essential cards while staying compact. He has another skinny wallet he's been using everyday that has held up well and this new one was another good choice to meet travel needs.

I’ve owned a BigSkinney wallet for a number of years. It has worked well and is still in good condition. I did decide to purchase a new wallet primarily because of the RF ID feature. Also small size. I assume it should work out well for the next number of years. Many thanks.
ProsGreat features and reasonably priced.

Best Wallet Out There
July 21, 2022
My old BigSkinny wallet finally started to show it's age and some wear and tear. I absolutely loved that wallet and hated to replace it. Thankfully, BigSkinny offers the same style. This time I ordered the RFID Blocking version, and I couldn't be happier with the quality. I honestly think this is higher quality than my old wallet. I absolutely love this thing. I tend to carry a "George Costanza"-ish amount of stuff in my wallet, but you'd never know it with this. Great quality and amazing design. I'll never buy a wallet anywhere else.
ProsHigh quality, lots of storage, smart design

This is a great wallet. Folds very flat and it feels good in your hands and in your back pocket. Highly recommended for purchase.

My first Big Skinny was over 20 years old and still useable. It was made of fabric and I wanted something that would keep my credit cards information away from the thieves and still hold my stuff in a slim package. I think I found it with this new wallet.

This is the second Big Skinny wallet I have owned. My old one was many years old and just didn't look good anymore. The function was still good but I bought a different wallet ( leather ) just for the appearance. I used the leather wallet for two days and decided I had made a mistake. I immediately ordered a new Big Skinny. I am quite happy with it!!!!
ProsSo less bulky in my pocket. ( I carry my wallet in a front pants pocket --- not a hip pocket. )

Big Skinny Wallet
September 6, 2021
Today, I purchased my second Big Skinny wallet. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the first Big Skinny wallet except I wanted to update to a RFID wallet. The reason I bought my first wallet was that I belong to a bag pipe band and there are no pockets in a kilt. The only storage you have is in the sporran and after you put your flask in it there is no room for a big, fat, bulky wallet. The Big Skinny wallet fits just fine, even when full of credit cards, drivers license, business cards and most important, money. I would recommend anyone who wears a kilt too get a Big Skinny wallet. I don't believe you will regret it. I also use it when I am in street clothes and keep the wallet in a front pocket, you don't even know it's there and is not accessible to some one lifting it from you.

RFID Blocking Bi-fold
August 23, 2021
About seven years ago I purchased a regular bi-fold. I liked it better than any wallet I have ever owned. It was still in serviceable shape but I wanted the RFID protection. The new one is just as "skinny" and I really like it. Highly recommended to everyone.
ProsVery slim and is as advertised.
ConsNothing negative can be said.

this is my third big skinny wallet. i went for a bi-fold this time instead of the tri-fold -- still thin, and it has nice options for organizing stuff.
Prosit's nice and thin.
Consthe fold is very flexible so it doesn't always stay rectangular.

A not bulky RFID blocking wallet - prefect for travelling. I was hoping to find an RFID Blocking Big Skinny, similar the L-Shaped wallet, but this works just as well :)
Merchant Response:Dear Gregor, Thank you for your kind review! We now have an RFID Blocking L-Shape available in leather if you are interested :) and hope to have full-nylon one out soon. Thank you again, BigSkinny
ProsBlocks RFID without the bulk
ConsL Shaped RFID blocking would be better ... well, me thinks

Big Skinny RFID wallet
January 11, 2020
I have been using the Big Skinny regular nylon wallet for years, and my son-in-law got one because he was impressed how thin it was. The new Big Skinny RFID nylon wallet is a little stiffer than the regular nylon wallet, but that is the only difference, but I am sure it will soften and conform to what is inside, just as my old wallet did. If it block crooks from reading my credit cards, then that is the most important thing.
Love it!

My husband loves this Bi-fold! It replaced one he bought years ago. It's flat and he likes that it's not bulky when he sits down. It also holds everything he needs. Love that it's RFID.
ProsBig enough to hold everything but still thin and flexible

A Compact Safe in My Pocket
December 25, 2019
This wallet is sleek and slick, keep my money and cards together with a minimum of bulk while at the same time blocking electronic intrusion into my credit file. Well constructed, compact, and safe to carry while traveling without fear of getting my electronic info skimmed. Thanks, Big Skinny, for an excellent, affordable wallet! I wouldn't carry any other style.

I purchased my first wallet from this company years ago a few months after their inception. I had that wallet for seven to eight years of hard usage. I just purchased this RFID wallet which a huge upgrade. I'm sure this wallet will last me the same amount of time or more. This company makes incredible wallets that last!!!!
ProsEverything!!! Don't overstuff the wallet, anything can be overstuffed. I have multiple credit cards, I.D.'s, store cards and insurance cards in my wallet and they all fit perfectly!
ConsThere are none honestly!

Not Bad
April 25, 2019
The wallet is reasonable. It's perhaps unfair as it is replacing what has been the "perfect" wallet for me, which is not produced any more (I bought 3 when I started, but I should have bought 10 as Eagle Creek abandoned it). It seems to be the best replacement so far. It is thin as advertised. I join other reviewers I've seen in saying that the logo is completely obnoxious and out of keeping with "thin". If I could take it out without ruining the wallet, I would. The wallet does not fold "straight".......it is slightly offset to one side, likely the result of the cards within it....however, I've not had that issue with other wallets. The biggest operational issue I have had is with the ridiculous separator in the bill compartment. It serves no purpose and in fact is negative in that it makes it MUCH more difficult to put bills in there without crimping the edges. I suppose it is for separating large bills from small, but anyone who is focused on "thin" likely only carries 100's and 20's so it's trivial to put the 100's in the front and the 20's in the back, which I've done for decades. As with the logo, if I could take out that separator without ruining the wallet, I would. I wear the wallet in my front pocket..........it so far has not conformed well to that purpose, with the "edges" remaining pronounced which makes it less comfortable to wear than the previous wallet design (curse you, Eagle Creek, for discontinuing it). Two of my issues are trivially fixable by Big Skinny: logo and separator. The remaining ones are just going to be the "facts of life" with this wallet.
ProsThin Holds a very reasonable number of cards
ConsObnoxious logo Useless bill separator Cost

February 10, 2019
Hi! I purchased your wallet about a month ago, after searching for one that met my expectations. And...voila!, yours got my attention, and to tell you the truth you've hit the point! It's really thinned my (otherwise) bulky, space-for-my-wallet place. It's incredible thinness, RFID protection, and toughness have really won my heart! Thanks, BigSkinny! Tom

I’ve used leather wallets for decades; I don’t know how many overall. The last one fell apart, and some years ago friends had shown me their Bigskinny wallets (yes, both I was with at the time had one), so I bought one. Upon receipt, I compared the thickness of both old and new, empty. Didn’t seem like such a big difference. Once loaded up, with about 10 cards and cash, the difference was, somehow, more impressive. So far, I’m quite pleased with this wallet. I’d prefer the fat logo on the front be gone, but I haven’t yet come near the point when I would risk the wallet to try to cut it off. Highly recommended.
ConsGet rid of the obvious (and THICK) logo

I've had several Big Skinny wallets - in a variety of colors in both leather and regular. They are the thinnest wallets and work very well. I haven't gone back to a regular wallet since buying my first Big Skinny. My recent purchase was an RFID blocking mens' wallet. Again, it works well for me and I appreciate having the RFID protection.
ProsHolds all the credit cards and cash I would ever carry. Thinnest wallet I've ever seen

Too thin? Nah!
May 10, 2018
I have had this wallet for over 4 years, and it is a miracle of thinness. Something peculiar started happening after about 2 years. I pulled my credit card out of the top pocket and it was cracked at the magnetic strip. I replaced the card, and a few months later the new card was cracked too. Then the cards I use less frequently in the top slot on the other side started cracking at the magnetic strip too. I finally realized that the wallet was so thin that my backside was putting enough pressure on the most vulnerable exposed part of the cards to crack them. I did not want to give up on this wallet. I turned the offending cards upside down so that the magnetic strip was no longer at the top of the wallet. With the magnetic strip relocated closer to the middle of the wallet, the pressure no longer seem to affect them.
Merchant Response:Interesting! Great fix! We'll have to recommend this to our other customers! Thank you! -BigSkinny
ProsIncredibly thin, easy to clean, does not stink when you get wet or sweaty.

Not as good as the Big Skinny I'm replacing
May 4, 2018
Instead of using a metal bar to hold bills this version has the standard slot in the billfold for money storage. This Billfold is wider and longer than the Big Skinny I'm replacing.
Merchant Response:Hi Dave, Sounds like you had our Acrobat style originally -which indeed is very compact! We hope to have it available with RFID-blocking capability soon! Have a wonderful weekend!
ProsThis Big Skinny is not as good as previous versions but it is still much better that a standard billfold
ConsToo big compared to the Big Skinny I must replace

This my second Big Skinny wallet. the first one lasted 8 or 9 years the best i can recall as it was purchased at a motorcycle rally. One of the best features beside the size is the it does not develop an odor like leather wallets do over time which makes it last for years instead of months. I went for the RF blocking version this time around

I love my Big Skinny wallet. It’s even better than advertised. I transferred the contents of my old bulky leather wallet into the Big Skinny and shazam!!, it is less than half the size of the old wallet with same stuff in it. Throw in the RFID blocking and it’s a phenomenal deal. Highly recommend

Improved Design of an Old Favorite
March 29, 2018
My wife bought me my first Big Skinny wallet about 29 years ago and I loved how thin it was even with mist of the items I had crammed in my old leather one. After eight years or so my Big Skinny looked a bit dirty and worn. I gladly irdered a second one. Another ten years passed and after my wife again commented on my cherished Big Skinny I ordered a new one. At first I was disappointed that the origibal rio stop nylon wallets no longer available. I ordered what I thought was the nearest thing, a black nylon bi-fold. When it arrived I loved it, especially the clear window for my drivers license. I also liked the compartments on each side, which make it easier for me to find things although they do not allow me to carry quite as many cards. But being forced to discard a couple of items is not a bad outcome. This classic Big Skinny is even better.
