The 20 Best Money Clip Wallets

Published By

You’re in line at the grocery store. You see the economy-loving guy with office supplies serving his financial organization needs — a rubber band around his cards, a binder clip on his cash. And over there is the guy who pulls out a year’s worth of receipts, ticket stubs and sandwich shop club cards stuffed into a four inch thick leather monstrosity. Which is worse? We don’t know. But since you’re here reading this, we’re guessing you’re neither of those guys. Or at least, you won’t be soon.

Get yourself a money clip wallet and experience the levity that comes from carrying just the essentials each day. Bring your cash along for the ride so you can be better prepared to split the bill, shop at road-side stands, and in order to be a responsible adult man (who should always have a bit of the folding stuff on hand).

There’s a money clip wallet to fit every guy’s EDC, from high-tech innovations to old school classics. Pick your material, pick your style, pick your favorite sort of money clip. A little bit of everything is here so you’ll be neither the unsophisticated binder clip guy, nor the over-encumbered wallet brick dude. You’ll be right in the middle with just what you need. And that’s it. Read on for our list of the 20 best money clip wallets available right now.

Wally Bifold Wallet

Distil Union Wally Bifold Wallet

You like the idea of a money clip wallet, but worry about your money folding skills. (Honestly, it’s not that hard to fold a rectangle in half twice, but we understand.) Wally is the wallet for you, with the money clip within the bifold. Slide in your flat bills then fold the wallet shut. On either side there’s space for cards (twelve in all) and accessing them is easy as pulling on the grosgrain ribbon pull-tab. Cards won’t shake loose thanks to the FlexLock pockets and your bills stay secure with adjustable tension on the clip. No origami skills necessary. – Buy It

Ridge Wallet Money Clip Wallet

Ridge Wallet Money Clip Wallet

Some very good stuff comes in aluminum — beer comes to mind (as it often does) but in this case, aluminum is being employed as the very durable housing for your bank cards and money. Ridge Wallet features integrated elastic between the aluminum panels that holds your cards tight, even if you only need to carry one or two. Plus the panels block RFID skimming so the only one accessing your data is you. A thumb notch in the side gives quick manual access to cards and the money clip is made from spring steel to hold your Benjamins (and your Georges and Abes) with assurance. – Buy It

Big Skinny Money Clip Wallet

Big Skinny Money Clip Wallet

Not metal. Not leather. Not carbon fiber. If thin is what you’re going for in your new wallet, this is about as skinny as it gets. Made from ultra-thin nylon microfiber, this measures just 4 mm thick when empty. Your cash stays put thanks to the strength of the magnetic clip, while the clear ID pocket and three card pockets have rubberized linings to keep cards from going astray. The money clip will hold twenty bills and each card pocket has room for three cards. Feasibly you could pack a lot into this wallet, though before long, you’ll negate your goal of thin. – Buy It

Tumi ID Lock Money Clip Card Case

Tumi ID Lock Money Clip Card Case

On the front you get three card slots made from TUMI’s signature FXT ballistic nylon — a uniquely woven fabric specially coated for extra durability. The back is leather with a leather-covered metal money clip. The ID Lock feature offered here comes from a proprietary technology that protects your cards from those who would like to skim a bit of your RFID info. It’s part of the Alpha collection — an assortment of wallets and card cases made from ballistic fiber — that pair nicely with TUMI’s Alpha 2 collection, a line of travel bags and luggage made from the same ballistic fiber. – Buy It

Lever Gear ToolCard Pro With Money Clip

Lever Gear ToolCard Pro With Money Clip

We love a good product story. After a long career of designing products for others, Lever Gear founder Mike Scully wanted to make something of his own. Something that would last. Something that added utility to the world. The result is the ToolCard, a made in America multi tool with forty functions. By using the removable money clip, those functions include carrying your bank cards and cash. It’s made from 420 stainless steel that’s then heat treated for extra hardness and durability. So you can drive down on that pry bar/nail puller knowing you’re not going to break your new wallet. – Buy It

D15 Carbon Fiber Money Clip Wallet

RC Fibers D15 Carbon Fiber Money Clip + Wallet

It’s the stuff of supercars and spaceships. And now, your money clip too. Carbon fiber is the lighter, stronger, buzzier material that every cool tech and gadget worth its salt must have somewhere in its materials list. The D15 starts with a money clip made from Italian carbon fiber that comes in four different weave patterns. There’s also an included leather insert — available in three color options, which makes the number of combinations of clip and insert nearly infinite. (Or twelve. Whichever comes first.) Park your cards in the insert and wrap your bills around, then slide the carbon fiber clip over the whole shebang and go. Or you can ditch the insert altogether and just go with the clip. – Buy It

KeyClip Money Clip Wallet

KeyClip Money Clip Wallet

You like the idea of a key bar. You appreciate the simplicity of a minimal wallet. You’re into the concept of a money clip. You want to say yes to all of them. The people behind Left Field Design have just the thing. The KeyClip wallet holds up to eight non-embossed cards in the stainless steel clip (or fewer cards if you want to add some cash) and has room for up to six keys, or a combo of keys and their available multi tool. The case comes in anodized aluminum, carbon fiber or get the KeyClip Light which includes a neon-green flashlight. – Buy It

Bosca Leather Front Pocket Money Clip Wallet

Bosca Leather Front Pocket Money Clip Wallet

Sometimes the full scope of your wallet purchase isn’t realized until five years later when it does one of two things: falls apart, or looks even better than it did when you first got it. This wallet from Bosca falls into that latter category. The bifold features a rich amber leather with slots for four cards plus two interior slip pockets. The magnetic money clip on the back holds your bills for a slim but elegant front-pocket carry. Designed by a company that’s been in the leather goods business since 1911, this wallet has what it takes to keep getting better with time. – Buy It

Kore Slim wallet + Carbon Fiber Money Clip

Kore Slim Wallet + Carbon Fiber Money Clip Wallet

Kore started life as a Kickstarter campaign to create the most adjustable belt for men, ever. The resulting track belt did really well for them — and for the pants of many guys — so they moved on to other accessories, including this wallet/money clip design. Another on our list made from carbon fiber, the clip can be detached and used alone, or you can pair it up with the (included) slim leather wallet. A pull on the wallet’s integrated tab will pop out the cards from the main pocket and you can put your two most-used cards in the quick access front pocket. – Buy It

NapaWalli Leather Money Clip Wallet

NapaWalli Leather Money Clip Wallet

Don’t think your wallet should cost more than the amount of money you plan to carry with it? The NapaWalli will run you well under the $20 mark. The money clip employs four rare earth magnets to hold up to thirty folded bills, so fold up those singles, wrap a sawbuck around them and don’t let your wallet tell you who’s boss. The leather wallet comes in a slew of colors and has three card slots plus two larger pockets for slightly larger items. It also has a clear ID slot so everyone will know who to return that cheddar to. – Buy It

All of which are made by the two Alto brothers, who design and manufacture (as well as photograph and market) every product they offer — by themselves and in-house. So you can tell people you whittled it yourself, these guys are too busy making stuff to care. – Buy It

Duluth Pack Money Clip Wallet

Duluth Pack Money Clip Wallet

For being the oldest canvas and leather bag and pack company in the United States, Duluth Pack is looking pretty good for its age. Handcrafting hunting and outdoor gear in Minnesota since 1882, their stuff is guaranteed for life (on all craftsmanship and hardware) yet somehow manages to still be affordable. This money clip bifold features a brass money clip on the interior, along with leather card pockets on either side and comes in a rich dark brown leather. It’s simple and timeless and by far, their price on a made-in-America leather wallet is pretty tough to beat. – Buy It

Nite Ize Financial Tool Multi-Tool Money Clip

Nite Ize Financial Tool Multi-Tool Money Clip

You hear the term “financial tool” and you picture an amortization schedule (assuming you know what one looks like). Luckily the Financial Tool from Nite Ize is far more fun, and a bit more widely applicable. With a bottle opener, and standard and metric wrenches and rulers, the stainless steel money clip does more than just hold your money goods. With a smaller clip up front for your bills and a larger clip within the body of the tool for your cards, you can keep your plastic and paper separate. And when the time comes to open a cold one (or tighten a bolt) you’ll be ready. – Buy It

Frye Logan Money Clip Card Case

Frye Logan Money Clip Card Case

The Frye Company was turning leather into boots well before the turn of the century — the 20th century that is. So chances are, they know their way around a cowhide. This simple, minimal leather number has two card pockets that run horizontally along the wallet. It and the metal cash clip are all done up in antique pull up leather from Italy. An antique metal hardware accent and embossed Frye logo add a bit of interest to an otherwise understated case, one that’ll hold your necessities and look good doing it. – Buy It

Duluth Trading Working Man's Money Clip

Duluth Trading Working Man’s Money Clip

You may recognize Duluth Trading Company for their animated commercials featuring a mustachioed contractor-type gentleman enjoying the extra room and freedom offered in the crotch region by Duluth’s jeans and underwear. This Working Man’s Money Clip wallet features a leather-sheathed, reinforced metal clip for your paper currency and two pockets around front to hold your plastic. Made from oiled nubuck leather and built to last a decade or more, the wallet may have little bearing on the comfort of your nethers, but it will certainly help you cart around your cash and cards securely and compactly. – Buy It

Edwin Wallet

Edwin Wallet

When you see the Edwin empty, no cards or cash suggesting its purpose, you might wonder just what you’re looking at. To start, it’s an improvement over the binder clip that many a no-frills chap employs as money holder. The Edwin uses the same one-piece spring steel concept, and adds a few more wallet-like features. The backplate and clamp hold your ID and bank cards, and a slot around back holds your most-used card (which slides in/out one-handed). Your cash wraps around the money stem (and then gets secured with the wire arm). in the case of the Edwin Plus, the wallet has bottle opener and screwdriver abilities. – Buy It

Shinola Money Clip Card Wallet

Shinola Money Clip Card Wallet

Very pared down, yet still quite dressed-up — that describes both this wallet and the Shinola approach in general. The Detroit-based manufacturing company first caught our eye with their timelessly styled timepieces and quality bags. They also make a line of handcrafted wallets, none so simply understated as this one. Made from American leather and made in Detroit, this has space enough for your ID and a bank card, with a clip around back to hold your cash. This is for the guy whose EDC consists of the bare essentials — and one of those essentials is style. – Buy It

M1 Slim Money Clip Wallet

M1 Slim Money Clip Wallet

Ever wonder where a company gets their name? Eponymous enterprises are easy enough — slap a founder’s last name on letterhead and be done with it. But a business not named after some dude sometimes make you wonder (we’ll tell you the story behind GearMoose… someday). In the case of Austrian company Wallum, the name is a simple blend of the words WALLet (which they make) and aluminUM (which they make the wallets from). Simple. Much like the wallets themselves. Featuring elastic bands to hold up to twelve cards between the aluminum plates, and a money clip for your banknotes, the M1 is designed, machined and assembled in Austria. – Buy It

Orvis Heritage Leather Money Clip Wallet

Orvis Heritage Leather Money Clip Wallet

Not satisfied with this new-fangled frippery crowding the wallet marketplace, you yearn for a money clip wallet that speaks to yesteryear, a time of gentlemen in hats who smelled of newsprint and Tom Collins. What you seek, dear sir, is this little number from Orvis. The company has 162 years of outfitting the outdoorsman under its (richly oiled leather) belt, and offers this Heritage wallet to hold three of your cards up front, along with a bit of cash in the magnetic money clip. A center pocket holds an additional card or your ID card, all while looking very properly refined. – Buy It
