TLDR

Nik's Minimalist Wallets can only fit the essentials: a few credit cards and folded cash bills, driver's license, and health insurance and library cards. The simple and slim design leaves no extra room for the unnecessary receipts, meaning that these wallets will slide into your pockets with ease.

Each wallet includes two interior pockets and an elastic band to keep it shut. It's also reversible so that the inner pockets can be on the outside.

These wallets are for you if:

  • You want something minimalist
  • You appreciate clean design and look
  • You only want or need to carry 6-10 cards and a few folded cash bills

On the other hand, Nik's Minimalist Wallets might not be for you if:

  • You want to carry standard-sized business cards (they're just a little too big to fit in these wallets without the corners getting dog-eared)
  • You carry a significant amount of cash
  • You prefer a wallet with a zipper. Check out our Clear Organizer Wallet

Full Description

What makes all four versions of Nik's Minimalist Wallets unique is how truly minimalist they are.

Upon delivery, the empty wallet will appear soft and somewhat unstructured. Why add a piece of unnecessary stiffener material, Nik thought, when users' ID, credit cards, etc. could serve as the stiffener? Each version has two interior pockets and a simple elastic band to keep the wallet shut. Something else that's pretty cool: you can fold the wallet in reverse, so that the "interior" pockets are on the outside.

Put your cards in the wallet, use the elastic band to keep it closed, and you'll find that within a day or so your wallet will form a slight crease down its spine: after that happens, both sides of the wallet will naturally close together whether or not you use the elastic band.

Design

We use nylon to make these wallets since it's typically thinner and lighter than leather. The design of the nearly seamless look was achieved by Nik through a process similar to that of origami. He had to imagine and conceive of a series of internal folds that would — after the final action of turning the wallet inside out post-construction process — create pockets for cards/cash and achieve that seamless look. The wallets are also slim enough to fit comfortably in your front or back pockets.

Wallet #1

Nik's original wallet and the most minimalist of them all. Two interior fabric pockets. No exterior pockets.

" "

Wallet #3

Two interior pockets: one is fabric, the other is clear urethane. And this time, there's one exterior pocket.

" "

Wallet #4

Wallet #4 is exactly the same as Wallet #3 except for one key difference: a small webbing loop through which gives you the ability to securely and conveniently tether this wallet to any TOM BIHN bag with O-rings. You'll need a Key Strap to do this, but given that all of our larger bags come with one 8" Key Strap in Black, you probably already have one. If you don't: see our various styles, lengths, and colors of Key Straps here.

 

" "

Wallet #5

Two interior fabric pockets and one exterior pocket. Basically, it's a Wallet #3 with a fabric pocket instead of a clear urethane one.

Sewn in Seattle

Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

Intrigued? You can find out more about the unusual way we do business on our Company Philosophy page.

THE BIHN Guarantee

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 and we stand behind what we make.

If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.

Small but Mighty!

My son seen these while I was showing him my favorite website. I surprised him with the #3 he was coveting.

Could not believe how much it was able to hold. So, I had to get one for myself. His is Ballistic, which looks very sturdy. I chose #4 Halcyon as I travel a lot and wanted to be able to clip it inside my bag. No more worrying if I set it down somewhere. Carrying 7 cards but I could easily carry more. (I don't want to.) Use the outside pocket for tip money or receipts. My children tease me that, since COVID started, my wallet gets smaller and smaller. This is as small as it gets. Tough material, super lightweight, and goes virtually unseen in back or front pocket. Love it!
