What goes on in a woman’s checkbook wallet? Lists galore, tons of receipts, a Kanye West concert ticket, coupons to save $1 on soymilk, a frequent latte card---buyer and gift cards and so much more…This tri-fold checkbook wallet is a recognizably classic design: a full-size, full-service design that can hold up to 60 plastic cards comfortably. Add checkbook, cash, coins, and the treasure trove of everything that is necessary, wanted, or perhaps even needed in the most obscure situations. In other words, and with grand understatement, this tri-fold checkbook wallet can hold a lot of stuff and still stay skinny. Our special “divide & conquer” design breaks up your cards into 4 discrete areas so they don’t all stagger on one long row leaving huge lumps. Our designed breakup into 4 general areas means there will be very nice symmetry when your cards are in place and the wallet is shut so you’ll have more of an even, flattish plane rather than “staggered bulges” like all those other out-dated thick regular checkbook wallets. Easily thin enough to transfer from purse to purse, backpack to satchel, or it even can be carried just by its skinny sexy self because it is so light. Snaps securely shut, and features an extra long coin compartment on the outside for easy access. Sheer minimalist delight for those who want to carry everything in a trim, thin, tidy, modern-looking piece of joy to carry. Magnetic snap creates an elegant opening closing wallet experience. $27.95 [Red and Black are now logo-less]

I actually sometimes have trouble finding this wallet in my purse because it is soooo skinny! It doesn't hold quite as many cards as my old one but I am working around that and may look to see if Big Skinny has a card holder. Delivery was very prompt and I couldn't wait to "play" with my new wallet.

I ordered the Skinny Wallet and just knew it wouldn't be what I wanted. I LOVE IT!!!!! I LOVE IT!!I could not believe how much I could get in it. I'm going to order another so I'll have another when this one wears out.

Saves lots of purse space!

I ordered another wallet as a gift and got this for myself on a whim. Very surprised how much lighter my purse is and how much more space I have now. I would like to have an inside zip pocket for smaller cards, but everything else from my old leather wallet fits in this one.

Have been trying to downsize purse size, but the wallet was always a problem. Ran across the "big skinny" & totally love it! Not had it very long but am impressed with the amount of stuff it will hold & is still "skinny".

Best Wallet Ever

I used to have a smaller wallet that would carry a couple of cards and ID and when I found out that there was a full size wallet I jumped on the change to buy it. I holds everything I need and no bulk. I even changed my mom over to carrying one of these wallets because she does not carry a purse & she keeps everything in her wallet, she told me just the other day sometimes she thinks she forgets her wallet because it is so slim and lightweight it does not weigh down in her pocket.

The first Big Skinny Monte Cougar Tri-Fold Wallet that I purchased was two years ago at the Mount Dora Craft Fair in Florida. I've loved it so much, I finally came to the website & ordered more colors. I am also giving one as a Christmas gift to my aunt who saw mine & asked that if I saw one again would I please pick it up? You really can cram EVERYTHING in this & not take up as much room as an ordinary wallet that's empty. I love that I can throw it in the washing machine too when it gets dirty. It comes out looking like new! Just be sure to air dry it & not put it in a dryer. I won't go back to a traditional wallet again. This one not only saves space but saves money too. I highly recommend it.

I love, love, love It. This is not my first,. This is my 2nd. If I knew you could wash them, I would have 2. It is nice to change colors from time to time and they make great gifts. I just love your product. Big Skinny is everything it say's it is. So nice not to have big bulky wallet in your purse and a nice thin sleek one!! Still Loving it!

Love the Skinny wallet. I don't use a check book in the wallet. The first one I bought at Staples and they only handled Red and I have had it for a while but purple is my favorite color so I bought it and love it. I sent back a small card hold which was to little for what I wanted. I may try another one but not right now.

Big Skinny Tri-fold works great
June 23, 2014
This takes up less than half the space of my old very lovely but large wallet, and it holds all the same stuff. Makes it more practical to carry a smaller purse. I like the divider in the cash pocket as I'm always putting extra stuff in with cash anyway. So many discount and ID cards one needs these days!

Good, but could be great

I have this in the red and appreciate its skinny factor. But, what would make it a great wallet, built in RFID protection, structure in the flap, and a stronger closing mechanism. I was able to get all my cards into this wallet. As far as a checkbook in an actual fabric cover with a divider for duplicate checks, well that was a no-go. On the plus side, I was able to put my Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the checkbook area. So I do have that option if I don't want to carry a purse. As far as the flap, well if I just shoved the wallet in my purse, sometimes, the flap would get crumpled or folded outward. It recovered well, but it is just annoying to pull out your wallet and see it all crumpled. I thinking of heading to my local Jo-Ann's Fabrics and seeing what they have there to maybe add some boning or something to the edge. Other than that, it is the one wallet I can use in my cross body bags that does not impede on the other sections because it certainly is not a fat wallet. Love that fact! Now, if they could build in the RFID protection and keep it thin. These wallets would be even better. Don't like the sleeves because that entails work (getting the label machine out and making labels for the sleeves so I know which card is in which sleeve).

I am sending this wallet back. It works good except the snap is not that easy to use. I have to make sure it is closed. And the flap on the right side keeps turning up and doesnt want to lie down. I have already sent for a leather one, hoping the flap on this one will stay down. It would be nice though if the company would send me a prepaid label to send the original wallet back it.

I really like it, wish it was a tick bigger or had 2 snaps so my pen would fit by the checkbook. Other then that LOVE IT and makes my purse lighter...major Plus

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this wallet! I am just amazed by how it actually does what the discription states - stays THIN!! with each card I added, I would close it and see if it got thicker and it never did! I can't imagine ever owning any other type of wallet again! I will be searching the site for more purchasing ideas! Seriously, if you want a wallet that isn't bulky and really stays thin then GET A WALLET FROM BIG SKINNY!!!!

My husband got one of your tri-fold wallets as a gift last Christmas & he was so impressed we purchased more as gifts. I am now using my black Monte Cougar & think it is wonderful. Love that it is light weight & so thin but holds so much. I would have liked more color selection. Thanks for a great product!

Mostly I like this wallet. It is quite thin, even when fully loaded. The dollar bill section is a bit tight to get bills in/out, although I like that it is separated to have a place for receipts to. Probably my biggest wish is that I could put my plastic cards in a way that I could see them all - when you have 3-5 in a slot, you have to remember where they are. Memory is not a strong suit of this 42-yr old mom with 3 & 5yr old girls. And while you can put a pack of checks in the lowest pocket, you can't truly put a "checkbook" in there. I'm making it work, and overall, I still like it.

I bought this wallet upon recommendation from my sister! Love, love, love. I love that it is so lightweight & even with a bunch of change, it still doesn't feel heavy.
