This 3 fold wallet
August 6, 2022
This is thinner than my old warn thin leather wallet and half as thin as a 3 fold Levi wallet advertised as thin. It expands to hold all my cards. I love it.

Great addition to my collection of wallets
July 6, 2022
But this is my favorite. My cards do not scatter across the floor when opened. Lots of slots to separate stuff and money. And it's about half the thickness of my temporary wallet when I needed to change over. Big - Capacity Skinny - Small in the pocket
ProsSee above
ConsI have to add money to it!

The Tri-Fold wallet serves its purpose admirably. There is room for six cards, an ID pocket, and space for bills, while retaining a thin profile. The card pockets are transverse, unlike many other products, which makes the cards more easily accessible while keeping them from falling out accidently. The external material, which is not leather, resists falling out of one's back pocket. All in all, a superior, well thought out product.

I've had a Big Skinny for years, and decided I would like to try another brand. Bought 3 different wallets claiming to be thin. Sent all of them back. Ordered the Big Skinny and back to being happy with my purchase. Don't know why I thought I could buy something different and better. You CAN'T. BUY OR STICK with the Big Skinny. ( I would like for you to offer another color other than Black).

I bought something similar to this wallet about 10 years ago. The biggest difference is that this one has RFID protection. I wouldn't carry any other wallet. Thin and I always carry it in my front pocket. I don't like sitting on a big fat wallet and it is not good for my posture and alignment. Great wallets.
ProsEasy to use and thin, thin, thin.

Hubby loves it. He already had one and wore it out- so I was replacing it for him. He loves that it is so thin yet holds all his cards/pictures and ID's.

This wallet works perfectly, has enough pockets to hold all my credit cards and still be thin.my other wallet was so bulky I couldn't put it in my back pocket. This wallet has all the same cards yet it's half the size.

What I've Been Searching For
August 13, 2020
I had a wallet similar to this years ago that my better half hated the appearance of but I really liked. So, you know the story, After going through 4 difference minimalist wallets that I immediately didn't like as soon as I received them, the search went on Then, whaa....la, I found Big Skinny. Instantly liked it and mamma approves of it also. Happy wife, happy life.
ProsVery thin and holds every card and paper I need to carry. The fabric design add far less thickness to wallet over any leather wallet I've tried, all of which were pretty thick before putting anything in them.
ConsNone for me

RFID Blocking Tri-fold Wallet
March 30, 2020
I needed a new RFID blocking wallet for my new enhanced drivers license. I ordered a different brand on-line, that was well made, but turned out I couldn't wear it. It was so thick it made my hip hurt. I ordered the Big Skinny RFID Tri-Fold. It is perfect for me. Well made, and slim enough to not cause me any wear-ability problems. It is thinner with all my cards and money than the other brand was empty! I highly recommend it. Ken

First time Big Skinny and darn happy
November 3, 2019
The tri-fold is a bit thicker than bifolds, but I am extremely happy with my choice. The tri fits better in the footprint of my small phone, and fits nicely in front pants pockets, backpack pouches and tiny dry bags. Also the tri-fold make me confident that the cards are not going to slip out. I like the two cash compartments, one for cash, one for temporary stuff like directions, notes, business/appointment cards. The stuff that normally turns a wallet into an inch thick puck, but instead I know I need to empty that compartment regularly. The logo does not bug me like it does many. It's a quick cue to let me know which flap of the tri goes on top, plus it adds a bit of resistance to keep the wallet from slipping out of pockets, and makes the wallet easy for me to grab. RFID protection is a bonus.
ProsStill pretty slim as a tri-fold. Nice small footprint for smaller pockets and hiking/dry-bag carry. Easily holds license and 9 cards without getting significantly fatter.....sort of seems like magic
ConsWill not keep cards dry if submerged.....not REALLY a con.

My previous Big Skinny tri-fold finally gave up the ghost after many years of use. It was such a change from my old bulky wallet; practical, useful and much thinner! This time I opted for the RFID shielding, but aside form that, everything's the same. The new wallet already feels like an old friend.
ProsSkinny Lots of pockets Comfortable size
ConsIt eventually wears out after years of use.

The Big Skinny is a great product. The first one I purchased , I had for probably ten years.. as a matter of fact I still have it even though my wife ran it through our washing machine. I kept it for sentimental reasons. This new one is great and will probably outlive me since I’m I my late seventies. Thank you again for the Big Skinny.

Better than expected
May 25, 2019
Even after reading other reviews I was sceptical about how good this wallet would be. I needed a wallet that would weather tropical climes better than leather. I also like a thin and compact wallet. The trifold not only for those two desires - it is thinner and more compact than I expected. It also feels quite durable. I even inserted ones of those plastic card inserts and it it still very thin. Time will tell how well it wears but I think it will prove Betty durable. It's a great wallet!

This is my second Big Skinny
March 30, 2019
I bought my first Bid Skinny wallet about 15 years ago and the only reason I purchased this one was to get the RFID protection afforded in this newer version. My old one is still going strong and will now be used to house my registration and HOG identification cards in my Harley. Great product, great service and wonderful people to deal with.

Size makes a difference!
January 29, 2019
After putting my very big skinny through a washing machine I bought a nice leather trifolld that simply was too big when loaded! Finally ordered a new big skinny and couldn’t be happier. Fits nicely in my back or front pockets! When fully loaded it is thinner than the other new wallet without anything in it!!!

For years, my husband was notorious for his lumpy back pocket. I spent a lot of wasted money on many different types of wallets over the years, but he swore he needed a big wallet for all his “stuff.” About 12 years ago, I saw a Big Skinny, and showed it to him. Negative reply, but he promised to “try” it. It’s for the most totalled at this point, but saw your ad, and my fear of not being able to surprise my guy on Christmas was gone. Ordered it right away, and it is now wrapped and waiting. My husband is often a “hard sell,” but if he likes something, he uses it until it can no longer be of use. But not this time, His old Big Skinny is still very usable and isn’t showing a lot of wear after so many years! He’ll still get his new wallet, but I’ll likely have to convince him that it’s okay to use the new one!
ProsLong lifespan, nice looking, holds lots of ?stuff.?

I don't carry many cards but I have 8 card plus my license and the wallet is so thin. In fact, I hardly know that I carry it within my back pocket. The lining to stop the card from sliding is a great idea and provides confidence that they won't fall out of the wallet. As my first wallet purchased from Big Skinny, I am impressed and will now purchase more for family members. What a great gift these are.
ProsNon-slip lining Thin wallet Small and compact

I already have a trifold. Wanted an rfdi wallet for my trip to Europe. This is good but a bit larger than what I have.

I purchased this wallet for my husband. He has been using front-pocket wallets for a while, but they are much heavier in leather and are too bulky when filled with cards. This tri-fold is light in weight, not bulky, and holds everything he needs without cramming things in. He really really likes it.
ProsSmall, light weight, holds a lot, attractive

I just bought this wallet for my husband. I had bought him a skinny wallet years and years ago and it was so old, it finally wore a hole in it after 10 years. He ran out to replace the original skinny wallet with something he found at the store but he hated how thick it was so he put everything back into the worn skinny wallet until I could order him a new one. He will only use skinny wallets from now on! These wallets are really tough and last for years and years- you will not be disappointed if you buy a skinny wallet.

I have been traveling a lot lately and this wallet really suits my needs. Obviously, not a good idea to carry around a "fat" one with multiple cards and identifiers. This wallet is well made and perfect for me! It allows me to take essential cards and small items. Also, it is easy to keep in a secure place.

This is my second wallet from Big Skinny. Got the first one during the funding era and liked it enough to go for a second one. It holds what I need to carry and I really nice when I try to overload it. The thin nature keeps me honest and is so much smaller to begin with I can still carry enough plastic and paper.

I had a Big Skinny wallet for years (received as a gift) and it was starting to get a little ragged. I wanted an RFID wallet and purchased one from another company. Big mistake. It was way too big and I hated carrying it around. I was complaining about my new wallet to a friend and he told me that Big Skinny also sold RFID wallets. I bought one immediately and I'm so glad I did. So much smaller and more comfortable to carry around. Life's too short to carry around a big bulky wallet. Thanks Big Skinny!

Nice Wallet
September 11, 2017
I recently bought a similar wallet from a company that sounds like Ballmart. The credit card slots on the Ballmart wallet were barely wide enough to fit a card. It was a struggle to get a single card out of the wallet. The folks at Big Skinny did a much better job at measuring the size of credit cards. I can actually get the darn card out of the wallet. My only suggestion would be to put a line of Velcro in the wallet to prevent inadvertent opening of the wallet. I have only one RFID card but it works just fine when the card is inside the wallet. Not a whole lot of RFID protection there.
Merchant Response:Hi Wallet Shopper, Thank you for your feedback! May I ask which of your cards is the RFID one? Our RFID-blocking wallets and most RFID-blocking wallets are designed to block credit card frequencies not card scanner RFID readers for ID cards etc which are typically very different frequencies. Thank you again for your review! Have a wonderful day! BigSkinny
