10 years old - unbeatable value
October 7, 2022
I purchased my leather Acrobat money clip wallet in 2012 (I think). A few years later I purchased one for one of my sons as a gift; he wanted the same one I had, except for the colour. BigSkinny says they use top grain leather, and I believe it. I never got more than five years out of a wallet in the past, and I didn't have any expectation that the BigSkinny would be more durable. I bought it because it's thin, and the price seemed very reasonable. The materials are light and thin, but clearly of high quality. When it finally wears out I expect I'll buy another BigSkinny. I can't imagine buying another brand.
Prosthin, lightweight, perfectly functional, extremely durable
Conscards can slip out a bit too easily, clip can break after a few years (but I found a replacement on Amazon)

Love the Big Skinny
December 12, 2021
I love these wallets because they are so thin, yet have room for my cash, cards and all that I need. I can carry it I’m my back pocket as I used to with larger, traditional wallets but I prefer carrying in my front jeans pocket or even in my shirt pocket at times because it’s small enough and lightweight.
ProsThin and light, with room for everything essential
ConsAfter 8-9 years, my leather wallet corners look worn. The card pockets may have treat her out a bit from years of carrying too many cards in the slots.

This is my second big skinny wallet and once again I am delighted to have the chance to own one. I hate large fat wallets and this wallet allows me to hold all the cards I need along with cash and it still feels small and slim in my back pocket.
ProsCannot beat it.

Functional Front Pocket Wallet
April 21, 2021
I have tried many variation's of the front pocket style wallets. This one does the job right...
ProsHolds everything and then some...
ConsOnly con for me is I wish it had an outside pocket for quick access to your primary card... Leave the inside alone, it is perfect but, if possible, look into an outside pocket for easy card access to your most used cards...

Game Changer
June 30, 2020
This wallet is a game changer!! It's so skinny, even loaded with my access key for work along with all my credit cards and cash, that I don't even feel it in my front or back pocket.
ProsLooks great and isn't much thicker than the cards and money you place in it.
ConsCan't think of any now. We'll see how long it lasts. For the cost of under $30, I can buy 3 of these before matching the cost of a typical leather wallet, and the skinny one has more benefits!
By John
So far, so good!
February 16, 2020
I find it hard to review a product after only a few days of use. What I will say is that this wallet seems to be well made and holds all of the cards, etc. that eventually led to the demise of my last handmade, much more expensive leather wallet.
ProsI purchased the leather money clip version. Seems of good quality leather outside, nylon fabric inside.
ConsHaven?t found any yet.

I have been carryinng this type of wallet for years, it's great, small but can carry a lot of cards, the reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it is not RFID, but I bought a RFID card to put to put in mine, works great.
Merchant Response:Dear Phillip, Thank you for your review! We hope to come out with an RFID Blocking version of the Acrobat soon :)

Right wallet for specific needs
January 30, 2020
I wanted a thin wallet, so Big Skinny. I prefer to not have to dig through my wallet to find bills, and this design splays them out to see them easily, rather than have to browse them down in a pouch. As others have said, the bills and any other paper held under the clip (such as receipts) need to be aligned before you close the wallet or they will protrude. However, this is also true with a pouch design; you have to tuck all the bills down into the pouch or they will stick out. Just expect to have to do this for this wallet too. This design makes it easier for people to see your cash when you open your wallet (show your ID, paying in line, etc). If you're concerned about people seeing how much cash you have, be aware of this. I don't carry much cash so having a few 1s and 5s waving around isn't a big deal for me. One teensy recommendation though; stitch the credit card pouch openings on an angle. When I try to slide a card out of the slot, the card hangs up on the slightly protruding stitching just above the slot and parallet to the top of the card edge. I have to flex the wallet slightly to get the card to pass over the stitching. Not a reason to not buy the wallet; there's always something. I like it. It's thin, humble, simple, handsome and well designed.
ProsSimple Thin Easy access to cash
ConsCash is more visible

A Little Long in the Lank
October 15, 2019
It's skinny on, but a trifle larger that the bills we are folding. I guess to make room for the emergency debit or credit cards to be slotted in. Nothing to complain about. It's a good, honest piece of workmanship. I retired my old billfold after 40-some years of daily use and it still probably has another couple to go, but everything has to retire or put out to pasture. Thanks, Big Skinny. I know where to go for my next leather product.

I love my Big Skinny and I was at a loss when after 2 1/2 year the money clip broke, I immediately ordered a new one and I am happy to say, my back pocket is much more comfortable and my money is secure.
ConsMoney clip is a little loose for my liking wish it had more tension. This is why it gets 4 stars and not 5

By Stuart
Great wallet wish it were somewhat smaller
September 19, 2018
Wallet was larger than expected but is definitely designed correctly.
Merchant Response:Hi Stuart, Thank you for your feedback! Our Acrobat style is just large enough to cover a dollar bill. It's one of our slimmest & shortest wallets. All Big Skinny wallets come with double-edged stitching to prevent fraying. You might like one of our super-minimalist card case wallets the Mini Skinny or Mini Stretch (the size of a credit card) :)
ProsHolds what is needed. Great design
Conssize of wallet larger than expected. single stitching.

Best wallet I have ever owned
March 16, 2018
After 2.5 years the wallet is showing little wear and functioning perfectly. I love the slim profile and the fact that the money clip is on the inside. When I first bought it I had to re-evaluate what I was carrying in my wallet and what I really needed. It has proven to do the job and relieve me of a big lump in my back pocket.
ProsSlim quality leather and nylon interior useability

This is my second wallet.....I purchased one originally a few years ago and was super skeptical about the non-bulky skinny advertising.....low and behold it was true! Well, it finally got worn out so I bought my second one....these are the best wallets I have ever had....they stay small and are not bulky even with my many cards and extra stuff I cram inside.....great wallet!

The best wallet ever is now even better!
December 26, 2017
About 8 years ago I got my first leather acrobat - you'll see I did a review of it a few years ago. I had it in my pocket everyday, and it's been through a lot. It was still functional, but starting to be worn out, so I replaced it. I am happy to report, that BigSkinny has improved the design! Specifically: 1. They changed out the money clip for one with a better shape/design. 2. They removed the v shaped cut out on the left side lowest card slot, and instead have a flat cut out now, improving card retention. 3. They made the wallet slightly (1/8"?) taller, and wider, so that you can fit multiple cards per slot easier. These are welcome changes - and they've made the best wallet ever IMHO, even better!

Awesome Wallet - Even Skinnier than it appears
August 28, 2017
When I am not using the (Leather Taxicat Bi-Fold Wallet), I love this wallet when I am looking for something that seems to carry everything! Both wallets are amazing and very strong, I haven't had any issues with storage at all.. in-fact I am constantly amazed at what these wallets can hold.
ProsSuper Skinny, Can hold a ton of cards and Paper Bills. Easy to use.
ConsWould love to see a version of this wallet that has maybe an external Money Clip, and or an ID window on the outside.. so I don't have to open the wallet when I show ID.

I like clips for my money. It lets me see what I've got without flashing bills to everyone around me. This wallet does that perfectly. It also holds all my cards, and if I put them in the correct place I can scan my transit card without removing it. In constant use for over five years now and still looks great. (Casual great not dressy great.)

July 23, 2016
Many of my friends & myself have been hunting for the best small wallet for many years now, and recently we all researched again, and I decided to try the best suiting product of Big Skinny's. So far I am extremely impressed, the only draw back so far is while visiting the UK, the big 20 pound notes are wider than the bill fold, but it's on while I'm on vacation, so no worries!
Merchant Response:Hi Peter, Thank you for your review! Definitely check out our World Wallet for your next international adventure--tall & wide enough to hold many different kinds of currency. Hope you had a wonderful vacation! Big Skinny

October 14, 2015
This is a great, thin wallet and I used it a lot with great results but the bill clip seems to be crooked now after a lot of use so I've stopped using it. I would have hoped you could just buy the clip separate. It just slides in so you would think it would be available here. Thanks..
Merchant Response:Hi Mark, You're in luck! I believe we do sell the clip separately for a nominal fee - also we do have a 1Year Warranty for materials & workmanship. At your earliest convenience, please contact bigskinny@customerstatus.com or via telephone at 1.888.844.6925 & they will be happy to send you a replacement clip. Thank you! Have a great day!

my old skinny wallet was canvas and worked great until the bill clip gave out... the leather wallet is OK... but the card slot on the right side is too small for a credit card... not so on the old wallet...
