Available Color options

Style: Wallet #5

Available Style 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.

    Pretty good, but elastic doesn’t last

    I bought this in August 2020. Great little wallet, been using it everyday. Only complaint is that the outside elastic that holds it closed stretched to the point of uselessness after about a year, and is now comically large — at some point I’m just going to cut it off. Kinda wish it would’ve lasted longer. Other than that, does the job!

    Cuter than I expected!

    I don’t want my review title to dissuade those who are looking for a more “rugged” look because I think the color really influences the look. I imagine this item is intended for those of a more masculine persuasion, but I like to carry a very small wallet with only essentials in my handbag. This takes up so much less room then a similar one I had from Kate Spade (in leather). The blue color I chose is fun and not too garish. The only mild frustration is that, as clearly stated in the item’s description, it is not designed to hold US size business cards. I only carry two with me so I’ve just trimmed them to fit (you don’t want to be without your Boba tea loyalty card!). Really just tells me that the US needs to get with the rest of the world regarding business card sizing. ha

    Compact and durable

    I purchased this wallet for my partner, who has already put it to the ultimate test of washing it in the washing machine after leaving it in his pants pocket. It came out marvelously with no signs of wear-and-rear. We have also found that an Apple AirTag fits great in the pocket alongside the credit cards and is still slim and nice to carry. This is a great product, like all Tom Bihn products, and I might be buying myself one soon as well.

    Best thinnest wallet for fitting a ton of stuff

    This is by far the best wallet I've owned. The best part about this wallet is how small and durable it is for what it can carry. You can carry at least 3-5 cards in each pocket, and you can technically stuff more money/cards down the middle or outer areas and have the elastic band holding everything — this is absolutely great for craigslist or when you need to separate the cash you plan to spend vs the cash you plan to stash away.

    The coyote color is also better in-person. Less bright and pretty classy. The #5 wallet was awesome, I bought their #4 with the transparent pocket for travels (showing my ID quickly, chaining it around my neck/belt loop, and such)

    It’s a winner

    Finally found a wallet that has the best combination of the small footprint and ability to carry my usual cards and cash.

    Inside clear slot: 5 cards and 5 bills folded into 1/4

    Inside solid slot: 2 cards

    Outside slot: 3 cards

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?

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.
