What goes on in a woman’s 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 model 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 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 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 closure.

  • top-grain, cowhide leather exterior with a thin, nylon micro-fiber interior
  • 1 general billfold/checkbook area with full-length separator
  • 1 general billfold/checkbook area
  • 8 extra-wide credit card pockets
  • 2 extra-wide clear ID/credit card pockets
  • 1 magnetic snap
  • 1 exterior extra-large gusseted zippered coin pocket
  • dimensions: 7½" wide x 4 3/16" tall (19.2 cm x 10.7 cm)
  • only ⅜" (7 mm) thin when closed!

Fantastic Wallet!
October 3, 2014
The Monte Cougar Wallet exceeded my expectations! It's gorgeous, soft and light. Was able to fit my checkbook, credit cards, gift cards and cash with ease. This wallet filled up was about the same weight as my old wallet empty. This girl is very pleased!

I had purchased a [random]wallet last year and the zipper broke after about 8 months. My daughter had shown me her new Big Skinny wallet and recommended I get one. I did and I am so HAPPY I did! My pocketbook feels so much lighter and it holds all that I need and more! Thank you to my daughter and Big Skinny!

I absolutly love this wallet. Was in the market for a new wallet-but need a bit more room in my handbag, and everything I found was a fat as my current one. Came across the Big Skinny site by accident, and am so glad I did. This wallet holds everything my old one did-but is half the size. And it's a fun red leather!!!! I now know where i will be buying all of my wallets from now on. This site has a ton of choices and I am so very pleased with my first purchase!!! Great product!!!!!!!!!

I had been looking to replace my favorite wallet, after @ 15 years, and could never find anything that could hold all of my stuff. That is, until I stumbled upon Big Skinny! WOW! It's light, holds EVERYTHING perfectly and was really reasonably priced! I liked it so much, I talked my sister into buying one!

This wallet is my second one and I absolutely love it! The reason it is my second one is that I wanted another color, and I'm thinking about buying a third! No matter what you put in it, it stays skinny.

The perfect wallet
July 6, 2014
This wallet--and all Big Skinnys I've owned--is a dream come true. It's very well-made with high-quality leather, thin, and lightweight, yet extremely durable, just like the company says. The color of this one is incredibly vibrant and it looks like it cost twice the price.

Love this wallet!
May 17, 2014
I was totally skeptical, both in terms of quality (not all leather?!) & capacity (how much could it really hold?) but am very happy I overcame the skepticism. This wallet rates the highest marks on both counts - I regularly tell my husband how happy I am with this purchase. Looks & feels great & makes my purse much less bulky - I love it & highly recommend it. Thanks for this great innovation. Unlikely that I will be buying any other wallet brand again for myself or gifts!

Amazed at what it holds
May 6, 2014
I was a little skeptical on how big this wallet would be and what it could ACTUALLY hold, but it is indeed The BIG Skinny. I have in mine: a checkbook, 5 credit cards, my coupons, drivers license, insurance card, a credit card sized metal bottle opener, 3 membership cards, books of stamps, 10 gift cards and the change. WHAT!?!? Have only had it a few weeks but seems to be good quality as well.

I have never been happier with a wallet in my life! This wallet is useful, light, attractive, easy to use, has plenty of space for many things without being bulky when full, and is brilliantly created. It has also held up well. I have had the one I am using for a year and a half and it is still in excellent condition. I agree with another reviewer that I would love to see some more color options. This is a fantastic and essential item for any woman's purse.

I love this wallet! My purse is always so heavy, and hurts my shoulder, so I went online to see if I could find something light, and yet would hold all I needed. This just is perfect for me, holds everything I want, and is thin and light, just like advertised. I highly recommend it. Thank You!

I love this wallet. It is as the video shows. I was looking for a light weight wallet to make my handbag as light as possible and it worked. I have even had to check my purse to make sure I had my wallet. I had shoulder surgery and can't handle a lot of weight in my purse and was so pleased with my new wallet. I keep 16 cards and a full check book with the cover and it's still light weight and slim in my purse. Please make this in more colors and I will buy another one!!

My new favorite
April 4, 2014
I ordered the hybrid leather version of the Monte Cougar after receiving a designer checkbook wallet for my birthday. The designer wallet is quite pretty and had numerous card slots (a carry quite a lot of credit cards and affinity cards), but loaded up, the thing was a brick and dragged down my lightweight handbag. Not wanting to leave my cards at home and also not wanted to haul around a heavy bag, I thought I'd give Big Skinny a try.

I went from not being able to close my old checkbook wallet to having a slim, organized wallet with my Big Skinny! My dad had one (a men's wallet) and loved it, so when I saw the checkbook wallet I figured it was worth a shot. Now my purse is SO much less bulky, and I can find everything I need in my wallet...such a lifesaver!

I bought this wallet for my girlfriend for Vanlentine's day and I'm not sure which one of us likes it more. Its very very slim, very stylish, slick sexy profile (I got her the red). Needless to say all her cards from her old wallet fit in the new one yet the wallet stays slim. She loves it, much easier to access cards and money and in her own words, "cause of how much stuff I can fit in it" :) A+

I love how lightweight this wallet is. Cards are easy to take in and out and i can fit several cards in one slot. the fabric in the inside flap, does wrinkle a bit. I love the red color;makes it easy to find in my giant purse

I love this wallet. I went from a huge heavy one to this and the weight of my pocketbook is substantial. Would love it more if it was offered in a matte finish.

Amazing wallet!!

I still can't figure out how it can be so thin yet so sturdy! I couldn't even close my old, expandable wallet any more but all the same contents fit in the Big Skinny Leather Cougar and, from the outside, it still looks like it could be empty! It's a wallet miracle!! Thanks, Big Skinny!!!

I bought this wallet for my wife and she is thrilled with it. She loves the style and the quality of the product and since she often carries it in her purse she said that because it is so much thinner than her previous wallet it has made her purse more roomy and easer to find things in!

I rate this wallet a 5 star as it is much lighter in terms of weight than any previous wallet I've carried. The ease and functionality of placing and removing credit cards and other items in and out of the card holders is hassle free. I'm pleased with this product.

The leather is so soft, softer than any other leather I have felt before. The wallet is wonderful. Holds lots and the magnetic closure works like a dream. The cards stay in place very well but are still easy enough to remove. I can't say enough good things about this wallet. Very slim and trim in my purse and I love, love, love it!

Leather Monte Cougar Checkbook Wallet Black
April 18, 2013
I ordered the black Monte Cougar wallet because I had recently purchased a leather Silver wallet (new product) in Florida. I was thrilled with the silver leather wallet and wanted a black one so I could change them out. When I received the black one and compared the quality I was a little disappointed. The silver one is a higher grade leather and does not have the chemical smell of the black wallet. It also does not have Big Skinny stamped on the front. I love the design of the wallets but do not like the quality of this Black Cougar wallet. I would exchange it if possible and pay any difference.

Fantastic Cougar Wallet
March 6, 2013
I absolutely love this wallet. It took pounds out of my handbag and weight off my shoulder. It's sleek, convenient design is just what I had been looking for. If I see someone shopping for a wallet in our local store, I immediately show them my awesome Big Skinny and refer to the website. Will be purchasing a smaller one for those extra seldom used cards. Bought a gift certificate for my husband so he could choose his own. Took his from fluffy to flat. He loves his Big Skinny too ! Thanks for a product that is functional but practical. It certainly does what you advertise it will do ! Thanks +++
