Read all the "best wallet, ever" reviews coming in for our Monte Cougar woman's tri-fold checkbook wallet from Big Skinny. It's a practical and very pretty addition to our world's skinniest wallet collections. This tri-fold women's wallet will hold your checkbook, cash, coins and favorite essentials. Sleek enough to use as a clutch for a night out.

You will have easy access to all of it without the fear of anything slipping out - not with our exclusive no-slip grip pocket liners. Our wallet is only 7mm thin (or 3/8) inch) when closed. This gorgeous tri-fold in electric purple measures 7 1/2 inches by 4 3/16 inches.

Our Monte Cougar wallet can hold up to 60 plastic cards in addition to your cash and coins. Instead of stacking your cards, you can divide them into special card holders to keep that slim, trim look without ugly bulges. A fashionable metal snap makes it easy to open and close. Inside our high tech nylon micro-fiber wallet for women is one general billfold/checkbook with a full-length separator.

  • 1 general billfold/checkbook area with full-length separator
  • 1 general billfold/checkbook area
  • 8 extra-wide credit card pockets

Great wallet

Ordered 2 of this a few years ago. 1 to keep and 1 gave away as a gift. Both still in great shape. Very durable. Wish you also sold cosmetic bags.

It's so nice to have one place for both money and cards. I used to use two different holders and it was cumbersome. The weight difference is great.

It really works!

I was skeptical my big wallet stuff would fit in this, but it does. It forced me to clean out just a few things that I shouldn't have been carrying in my wallet anyway. I love it.
Lightweight, holds what I need

This is my second Big Skinny because I like it so well
September 2, 2015
A friend recommended this wallet years ago, and I won't ever look for anything else. I finally bought a new one just because I was bored with the color of the old one. It had not worn or torn anywhere, even around the pockets where you shove cards in and out every day.
Merchant Response:
Hi Shery, Thank you for your review! And about the corners 'curling up', we have created a new style called 'The Slimvelope' the top flap is cut differently so it prevents the curling :) Have a great day! Big Skinny
Extremely organized and compartmentalizations, yet takes up only a fraction of the space of traditional wallets. Has the capacity to hold a huge quantity of loose receipts and papers, too, until you get around to organizing and tossing. Extremely long wearing. Neither fabric nor stitching showed any wear, even after several years.
Only a single snap in the center closes the wallet, which is very easy, but that means the corners can curl up when it rubs against other items in your purse.

Finally a thin, lightweight but roomy wallet
August 18, 2015
For months, I've looked online for "light weight" "organizers" "thin" etc and I bought so many styles and kinds trying to find the ideal for me, only to be disappointed. Amazon finally brought up BigSkinny on a search . I ended up getting a style on Amazon that I don't see on the BigSkinny site. It was narrower and less expensive than the Monte Cougar. Not needing it for a checkbook, it was exactly right for me. The extra width of the Monte Cougar would be necessary for a checkbook, however. I was so impressed that my super skinny wallet could hold all my change and cards and money and be so thin, that I turned around and bought the Trixie -- for those times when I use a purse that isn't quite 7" tall. I also got the L-shaped leather men's wallet for my husband. What I'm hoping for from this company now is an organizer bag that holds everything I need and is both a wallet and a purse, has a detachable strap, and is well-thought out. Organizer bags tend to have major flaws in their designs, but I figure this company would get it right in a lightweight bag. One of those flaws is making credit card slots that you have to tug at to get them out, or too loose and they fall out. BigSkinny fixed both problems with the rubberized roomy slots.

Hi Sunnybrook, Thank you for your fantastic review! We wanted to let you know that we have a cross-body organizer bag available- It's called The Cheshire Convertible and can be worn 10 different ways. It comes in a variety of different colors and is now on sale for $29.95. Thank you again for your review. Kind regards, Big Skinny
THIN, LIGHTWEIGHT, the best credit card slots ever, rubberized but roomy. Washable, well-made.
