As good as my first big skinny

It holds all I need and is so thin I often reach back to make sure I still have it in my pocket. Great wallet, may get another for dressy occasions

This is my second Big Skinny wallet. I bought my first one 8 years ago and it has been used everyday. I replaced it because it was starting to have issues with the leather stitching.

I have to carry a lot of cards due to multiple small businesses. This wallet has been great. The side i carry 6 cards in each pocket finally wore out after many years. I'm buying another one. My fist one was purchased from a booth.

Seems more rugged than the nylon model. Stays in back pocket better. Same great setup for credit cards and bills. Wish it had a zippered pocket for large bills or cards.
ProsLeather cover a very nice touch
ConsWould like a zippered pocket in bill section.

I purchased a Bigskinny wallet back in 2009 because I was having back pain and my previous wallet was part of my problem. When sitting I was actually twisting my back because my wallet was to thick when sitting. I’ve had minimal back pain since I had bought this wallet. Well it finally was looking well used and time for a replacement. So I liked the way the wallet pockets were and bought this new Bigskinny which is exactly like my original one was. Im always going to be looking for a Bigskinny wallet when I need one. I hope this model/style is still available when this wallet needs replaced.

Best wallet I’ve ever had!

My old wallet was 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick. Now with my new Bigskinny wallet it’s under 1/2 inch. My hip feels 100% better. Same stuff inside.
ProsEverything GREAT !

ProsSlim, comfortable, great looking, everything stays put, affordable, great customer service.
ConsNone yet. Don?t anticipate any ever.

Very thin.
December 12, 2021
This wallet is almost as thin as the nylon BigSkinny wallet that I had been using for years. Didn't expect leather to be that thin. Nice looking leather too. I do understand that one reviewer's complaint about that childish BigSkinny logo. On the nylon one it's hideous. On the leather one, it hardly sticks out. On this wallet, I had sewn a loop to the inner flap in the middle so that I can run a 100lbs kevlar line through it and hook it to my belt. This functions like those biker chain wallet to prevent pick pockets when I travel through Europe. If they add a gromlet there it would be helpful.
I love this wallet!! Third one I've had.

I love this wallet, for two reasons in particular. First, it is wide enough that credit and ID cards don't have to "overlap" nearly as much as in a regular wallet. I can carry 8 credit and ID cards, and they stack only 2 deep on either side (top and bottom). Second, the wallet is deep enough to easily hold foreign currency; many countries have paper currency that is much wider than in the US.

This is the second time I have purchased this wallet. The first time was at the Big Eastern Expo. The amount of cards, bills/notes, pictures etc that you can put in this wallet is crazy. It’s like it never runs out of room. It fits very comfortably in either the front or back pockets and you can hardly tell that your even carrying a wallet.
ProsComfortable. American and European sections for paper money. Long lasting leather. Endless space. High quality.
ConsDoes not come with something for keeping pictures.

Bought three more!
July 30, 2021
I bought my first Big Skinny, a leather hipster, about 3 years ago at a trade show. I had always struggled with normal wallets, because I come from a long line of hoarders. (Lol) But I do tend to put business cards, receipts, and small pieces of paper with numbers in my wallet. The Big Skinny allows me carry the same amount of items, at less than half the thickness! When I saw an add the other day, I decided to order another one. And while I was at it, I ordered two more for my sons. To top it off, I opted for the monogramming! VERY satisfied with Big Skinny! Recommend them to ALL my friends!
ProsLong lasting, real leather. Multiple pockets spread everything out, and keep the whole wallet thinner. Fast drying!(ask me how I know) Doesn't slip out of my pocket.
ConsCan't think of a single one.

Bought this same wallet again after a few years
April 13, 2021
I just bought a new Leather Hipster wallet to replace the one I bought a few years ago. It has held up very well over the years inside my pocket, only the vinyl lining inside the billfold has started to crack and peel off, but I am sure it could have easily lasted me another few years. Practically speaking these wallets are amazing. They are so thin, and I carry a ton of stuff in the wallets very comfortably. There is no way I could carry this much in a normal wallet and still fit the wallet into my pants pocket. So I am a big fan of the wallet. That being said, I still think they could upgrade the leather a bit, which looks like cheap leather even though it is top grain. The wallet does have a cheap look to it, and as a professional, I like to have something that looks a little more professional and sophisticated, but in the meantime, I am willing to make that sacrifice to have something that is practical, comfortable, and durable. This time I got my name monogrammed on the front. It looks just fine. I would recommend it to others.

Merchant Response:Hi Brad, Thank you for your feedback! Cool to see your first wallet from years ago! Thank you for your loyalty over the years! Love, BigSkinny
Prospractical, holds a ton, very slim, holds up over time
Conslooks and feels a bit cheap, still not crazy about logo on outside of wallet

I am 78 years old and for many years I had a problem with credit card slipping out of my wallet . And then wallets being so thick it would hurt or be uncomfortable when sitting down. Then I found the "leather hipster bifold". It can hold many credit cards without anything falling out. The wallet fits very comfortably in my back pocket very nicely. I give them as present to family members. AWESOME WALLET.

Leather Hipster Bifold
April 5, 2019
The quality is nice, and the wallet is just as thin as advertised, but it is significantly larger in length and width than expected. It is the size of a box of tissues when opened! Unfortunately, too big for front pocket carry. Had to buy another wallet instead.
Merchant Response:Dear Kevin, Thank you for your feedback! Sounds like you might be better off with one of our more minimalist wallets like the MultiPocket Bi-Fold, Compact Sport, or Metro Bi-Fold that have a much smaller footprint, but still carry up to 20-25 plastic cards :) 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 again for your review! Have a great day! BigSkinny

Been using the Hipster for about 10 years now. Replacing a well worn one. I use a nylon hipster when not riding a motorcycle. Easily transferable for contents. not as many sore butts after a day of riding. holds everything I need. Comfortable size. Never lost a Hipster yet. My only complaint is no small grommet to hook a chain wallet to. Had a shoe maker put one in. I would recommend this to any mc riders. Love it!
ProsSize, thickness.
ConsNot available with grommet or a chain.

Husband's only wallet for years
December 15, 2018
I bought my husband his third hipster for Christmas, though I see that the one he has is still in pretty good shape. I may have to wait until his birthday or next Christmas to give him the new one. His second one has lasted quite awhile. He will always use this wallet because he has lower back problems. A 'regular' wallet threw his back out, so I know he is very happy with this one.

Super skinny!
December 15, 2018
It’s even thinner than I thought and fits a ton of cards. The outside leather is nice and the inside material seems very durable and can stretch to fit everything. I would buy again if I ever need to replace but this will probably last quite some time. :) Shipping was super fast and they even refunded my shipping (Black Friday special) without me asking. That’s great customer service.
ProsMaterials Craftsmanship Fits everything you need Skinny!

Great men’s wallet
August 1, 2018
This is a great wallet. Holds all my credit & debit cards, business cards and even has a divider to separate large and small bills. It is the same size as the wallets I have been carrying for years but is only 1/3 the thickness. Easy to get in and out of pockets. Carry in any pocket even a front pocket . Looks great too!
By Paul
overall delivers as promised
July 18, 2018
It is very spacious yet keeps everything flat and folded. Very convenient in layout, my only gripe is with the actual card Pockets because some of them do not hold the card tightly which means that if you are not careful when you open your wallet some of your cards may fall out.
Merchant Response:Hi Paul, We generally recommend The Hipster model for our customers carrying over 35 plastic cards cash & receipts. There is a non-slip coating on the inside of each pocket to prevent cards from falling out. Perhaps you'd be interested in one of our smaller, more compact models? 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 again for your review! Have a great day! BigSkinny

I carry more plastic than I need or should. The big skinny keeps the overall size at optimal - so I can put it in my pants pocket or inside jacket pocket without causing sciatica or getting tackled in an airport because of the jacket bulge. Looks great and keeps me skinny. What more can I ask?

I ordered the leather wallet since i had used the cloth wallet for five years. Wanted an upgrade. Although the clothe wallet had been through the wash twice and was still was going strong with no problems. So far I am very happy with a little more substantial wallet.
ProsMore substantial than cloth wallet.
ConsNone so far.

Cards fall out, leather looks cheap, logo huge and ugly
December 11, 2017
I was excited to try this wallet out. While it is certainly thin, I have a few major complaints. 1) The cards do fall out, every time I open the wallet. That is unfortunate and a pain to always be putting the cards back in every time I open the wallet. It shouldn't be that way. 2) The leather looks very cheap. While it may be top-gran leather, it certainly looks like the kind of cheapo leather that is actually bonded leather or in other very cheap leather items. 3) The logo is really ugly and really big on the front of the wallet. First of all, who wants a wallet with the logo stamped on the front of it? Maybe if it was Polo or some other high-end brand that people wanted to show off the brand, but even then I would prefer the brand to be inside the wallet, not on the front. Even more so when the logo is hideous and looked like it was designed by a teenager for free. Please consider hiring a real logo artist to re-design your logo and placing the logo in a more discreet location inside the wallet, not on the front. In short, I got the thin part, and it's great. But on the whole, I'm not really so crazy about the wallet for the reasons mentioned above. Would I buy it again? Not if I can find a better slim option out there.
Merchant Response:Hi Brad, Thank you for your feedback. Hmm the Big Skinny leather wallets only have a small, subtle embossed logo on the front right bottom, perhaps a misprint was issued-which we are happy to replace! We generally recommend this style to those carrying close to 40 plastic cards, cash, & receipts. 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 betters suits your needs. Thank you again for your review- Have a great day! -BigSkinny

Had this for about 4 year. It's worn well - leather darkened and warn around points that rub (as is normal for leather), and all seems are completely intact. Best wallet I've owned, and the there is no gimmick to the thinness - it's thin!
