Style: Wallet #5

Available Style options

Color: Taiga 400 Halcyon

Available Color options

Four versions of a truly minimalist wallet with a nearly seamless look achieved through a process similar to that of origami.

TLDR

Nik's Minimalist Wallets can only fit the essentials: a few credit cards, driver's license, and health insurance cards. 

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

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

  • You want to carry standard-sized business cards
  • You carry a significant amount of cash
  • You prefer a wallet with a zipper

Full Description

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 our designer 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.

    Nik's perfect wallet

    This wallet works and looks just great! Perhaps the only little thing I would change about it is I would include some (even if small) TB branding on the outside too (it only has it on the inside).

    Good quality construction and exactly as advertised

    My wife can attest to my pickiness when it comes to wallets. I have gone through a few minimalist wallets the past few years, always finding something wrong with them. I chose this wallet, the #5, because there is an outside pocket (I use for the rare occasion I carry cash - folded in thirds it's secure) and because I don't like clear plastic window pockets. I chose the Nik's wallet because I wanted something that has two sides that fold, securing the cards within so they can't fall out. This wallet scratches all of those itches, and the little elastic band is constructed solidly so that I don't think it will fail anytime soon. And honestly, if it did, the wallet would still function just fine. The only issue is not with the wallet itself, but with Apple's decision to make their Apple Card out of a thick titanium, making it a tight squeeze when adding it and another regular card into a pocket. I live in an area where too many merchants still don't have touchless pay systems.

    Wallet#5

    I love this compact lightweight wallet. I carry four credit cards, my drivers license, and some cash. The wallet fits perfectly into the small inside pocket of the Side Effect, which I use as a crossbody. I like the wallet so much I bought an identical one for my nephew.

    Good but the elastic band doesn’t last long

    I love the wallet, the design is great and it’s so lightweight. The only problem is the elastic band, it lasts me about 6 months and after that it gets weak, it won’t hold the wallet tightly closed so I had to order another one. I wish the next version would have a different closure mechanism or a better elastic band.

    Great Wallet

    So far I’m really enjoying the wallet. I may even purchase another one since I really didn’t end getting my first color choice. Lightweight and comfortable to carry in my pocket. I’m currently carrying 9 cards including 2 ID cards. I was concerned about the longevity of the elastic band but so far I haven’t felt like I’ve even needed to use it . I would definitely recommend. * For reference I’m a female but I wanted an understated, minimalist wallet the I could carry while in uniform.

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?

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.
