Bellroy Card Sleeve Wallet

Bellroy Card Sleeve Wallet

The front pocket wallet — otherwise known as a minimal wallet — aims to reduce everyday carry bulk without sacrificing the ability to carry the essentials such as credit cards, some folding cash, etc. Every wallet on this list does this in some capacity, and every single one fits into your front pocket easily, but Bellroy’s Card Sleeve Wallet is hands down our favorite.

Backed by the brand’s three year warrant, the wallet’s leather construction patinas over time to create a beautiful, worn-in look, and holds at least 8 — more once it stretches a bit over time — cards and some cash. Our favorite part? A pull tab feature that allows instant access to the center compartment’s contents. This is everyday carry at it’s finest. – Buy It
