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]

Satisfied customer purchases a gift

I purchased this wallet for a lovely girl as a future Christmas gift. I know she will love it since I have one the same style and have found it so light and convenient to use. Cannot believe how much less weight I am carrying around in my purse now.

I've purchased three wallets: one for me, one for my mother and one for her friend. Love, love, love the wallet!
Light weight yet holds everything I need.

Skinny it is!
May 12, 2015
This wallet has almost everything my favorite wallet has with one exception, it needs an additional piece of fabric near the fold that can act as almost a hidden compartment. One that isn't seen on a quick perview- out of sight and out of mind. I kept my vehicle registration and health card with DOB buried in it as they are not bulky and I don't use them often if your wallet is stolen. Other then that I like the dual devider in paper money area and another place to put receipts, business cards etc. as well as the usual credit card slots.

Hi Sue! Thank you for your awesome review! We're actually phasing out the Monte Cougar style for the even more awesome Slimvelope style and it already comes in over six different colors & patterns. Let us know if you'd like to exchange! Have a great day! Big Skinny

Thin and Durable
May 11, 2015
I've owned my purple Nylon wallet for over three years and I absolutely love it! Not only does it hold up to regular, daily use, but it weathers well and is a fraction of the weight of any other wallet I've owned, even those that are only half the size! I have so many cards and other items to keep organized, I especially love the top billfold area with the separator, so I have a place for cash and one for other similarly sized items. It fits wonderfully into every handbag I own, including the small ones. I may just have to buy another in a different color to switch things up!
-Well-made for regular use -Easy to organize many things -Light -Sits well in all manner of purses
-The only minor thing (which is super minor) is that as a busy mom, I usually keep a pen in the wallet, and sometimes it slips out the side. A part of me wonders if there's some way for you to design a loop or optional place on one side so I could attach my pen without it slipping out into my purse. But as I've said before, it's a really minor thing, and I've had this issue with pretty much every other wallet I've ever had, so it's really not a fault in the design.

Absolutely Wonderful!
April 30, 2015
I got this one not only for the price but also because it has a separator on the one billfold slot. I can fit all my card, they are easy to remove from the wallet when i need them. i do not have to pull all the cards out of slot just to get the one in the back that i need. The separator in the bill fold allows me to also keep my phone ( i phone 6 ) in the wallet. It is slimmer, lighter and keeps me more organized than any other wallet i have ever had. The clasp holds well and magnetically closes so there is no missing closing it securely.
great for organization! can hold an 1 phone 6 (and a 4S - i tested with my old phone also - little bulky with a 4S enclosed case but still fits and closes.)
Would be better with Wrist strap. I wanted to order one when i ordered this but website would not let it go through. Said it was not order-able.

Love this Checkbook Wallet
April 22, 2015
This is actually a gift for my mother. She has had one of your wallets for several years, and it is getting pretty worn. She keeps saying I have to get another one of these, so I ordered her one for Mother's day. I have one of your wallets as well, just a little different style and I love mine also. We have both used them for a long time and like how they take out the bulk in your purse. Thanks again for a great products.

Definitely skinnier
April 20, 2015
This wallet solved the problem created by my purchase of a smaller purse. I like the color and shape and it's definitely skinnier than my previous wallet. It doesn't have quite as many credit card slots and it's one or two pockets smaller, as well, so I had to put some of my stuff into one of the pockets in the purse, but I'm getting used to the new arrangement.
Very pretty color.
Material is very slippery, which raises the possibility of the wallet slipping out of the purse if it's turned upside down, but this is probably not a big issue.

Best wallet EVER

I received this wallet as a gift at Christmas and liked it so well I bought it for my sister and best friend for birthdays. I only wish there had been a choice of colors.
