Bellroy Slim Sleeve Review

8.8
Expert Rating

The Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet packs a wallop despite its small size. The pull-tab is an excellent feature to have and it’s still astounding why more wallet manufacturers don’t have this. The Bellroy is great for someone who uses a lot of cards and if there’s ever anything wrong the warranty should have you covered. Check out our cool wallets list for more cool wallets!

Why We Like It – Bellroy Slim Sleeve

The Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet makes the most out of the tiny amount of space it has. It’s quite clear that a lot of thought, and specifically engineering thought, went into designing this slim wallet. It’s also eco-friendly because the leather is environmentally certified which is a nice, added bonus.

Pros
  • Coin pocket that doubles as a business card protector
  • Great for someone who uses lots of cards
  • Three year warranty
Cons
  • Trying to fit more than six cards could prematurely stretch it
  • Can’t fit a lot of bank notes
  • A little on the expensive side

Performance

According to Bellroy themselves, their front pocket wallet can house 6-12 cards in its card slots. While true, six seems to be the absolute limit without prematurely stretching out the wallet. But if you don’t mind that then, by all means, fit 12 cards in the wallet. If you want a slimmer and more card-capable wallet, review the ARW Slim Cool Wallet which can fit up to 15 cards without over-bulking. On a final note, the Bellroy Note Sleeve also has a coin pocket that doubles as a business card protector.

Design

The Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet is first and foremost a card wallet. If you’re somebody who uses a lot of cash, or who likes to carry a lot of cash for emergencies, consider something like the Tommy Hilfiger Men’s Cool Wallet for its slightly larger size and thus added space. The Bellroy has a quick access card slot on the right side. Also on the right side is a space to put extra cards you don’t use too much and a pull tab to quickly gain access to them when you do need them.

Value

The Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet uses premium, environmentally certified leather so you at least know you’re getting a leather wallet without doing any harm. It is also backed by a three year warranty which is just about the best warranty we’ve come across for wallets. It retails on Amazon for $75, which isn’t too bad, but still isn’t the cheapest wallet around. If you are looking for something cheaper with some good storage space, check out the Travando Slim Cool Wallet.

Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wrap Up

The Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet is truly the card-lovers wallet, though it is a shame that it wasn’t built a little bit sturdier to avoid the early stretching. Still, if you’re an absolute minimalist who will only take the bare essentials of cards with you, then the Bellroy Slim Sleeve should be right up your alley.
