Beach wallet fashions range from uber-cool to style-overload. That lump in your back pocket created by old-fashioned wallets could become a lump in your shoe with some of today's wallet-like flip-flops designed with insert pockets in the soles to hold your stuff.
You can buy plastic beach buckets designs that you can park in the sand or carry shoulder purses shaped like pink flamingos, watermelon slices or colorful beach balls.
Logic-defying see-through purses, wallets and clear plastic fanny packs let you and, unfortunately, everyone else see what you've brought to the beach. Secret agent-inspired sunscreen bottles and soft drink cans are actually disguised containers with screw-on tops to stash your stuff next to your beach towel.
Giant strap-on waterproof bags and metal containers designed to protect your stuff on scuba diving expeditions can, alas, be somewhat cumbersome to lug to an afternoon pool party.
The thin, lightweight and water-resistant wallets and handbags designed by Big Skinny offer a more practical and fashionable approach to modern beach wallets.
The Oops Factor
The high-tech folks behind the Big Skinny brand are apparently also klutzes at heart. They designed their latest nylon microfiber wallets and handbags to be machine washable should you pull it out of your pocket to show off your trendy new wallet and then, oops, drop it in a mud puddle.
But it's that klutz-minded thinking that has helped make Big Skinny the hot brand in beach wallets that have become the go-to choice for beach vacations, sports fields, outdoor adventures and cruise ship travel.
Consider the wallet and purse pocket construction that make Big Skinny billfolds so popular. The pockets are extra-wide for clumsy fingers, and they have a proprietary rubberized lining to keep your stuff from falling out when you accidentally open up your purse or wallet upside down. Yes, us closet klutzes will attest to this happening on occasion.
Unlike the dowdy thick plastic wallets your cheapskate parents gave you as a kid, the chic, sleek nylon microfiber construction of Big Skinny's line of wallets, clutches and shoulder bags makes them look like expensive designer creations.
Fortunately for us grownup cheapskates, the world's skinniest wallet is surprisingly the most affordable wallet you can buy for yourself or as a gift. How thin are Big Skinny wallets? Today's cheap, strike that, budget-minded buyers can slide them inside a greeting card, which, come to think of it, will spare you from having to spend money on boxes, wrapping paper and postage.
These water-resistant wallets by Big Skinny with slip-resistant pockets inside are also surprisingly roomy, with pocket construction designed to hold all your essentials without adding bulk. Slip them in a front pocket, back pocket, beach bag or palm of your hand.
Big Skinny's mini stretch wallet is so compact; it's sized to wrap around just your folding money, credit cards and your ID. The travel wallet is also thin, but with enough roomy inside pockets to hold passports, airline tickets, oversized foreign currency and oddly shaped spare change while you're on that beach vacation in Tahiti. Additional internal wallet pockets have been added to stash your show-off photographs from the trip.
When you're at the beach or on a mountain hike, you can't leave your smart phone behind to melt on the car dashboard, even if you do want to avoid a phone call from your boss.
That's why Big Skinny cellphone wallets have been designed to hold a traditional cellphone or today's newer, bigger smart phones, including case, safely inside the company's line of smart phone billfolds. If your boss does call, don't answer. Or, pretend you're gargling with marbles in your mouth while you plead a poor connection and then hang up.
If you're not the wallet type, Big Skinny has designed water-resistant money clips and key cases with inside pockets to stash your ID, must-have plastic and spending money. Bi-fold and tri-fold styles with nylon microfiber construction also protect against splashes, blowing sand and beach drink spills.
For women, stylish, lightweight Big Skinny beach clutches and convertible shoulder bags with detachable straps have smartly crafted inside pockets lined with rubberized coatings to hold coins, cash, cards, makeup, cellphones and even your favorite e-reader to keep up with the latest summer fiction. These purses, too, can be gently machine washed and air-dried. They come in subtle to bright summer colors.
Of course, women carry wallets, too, and one popular buy for the beach or big city adventure is Big Skinny's uniquely designed "taxicat" wallet that's small enough to carry in the palm of your hand or discreetly tucked inside the hem of a beach bikini.
For men and women, when it comes to modern beach wallets that are sturdy, stylish and practical, the winner is Big Skinny.
Smart Materials and Fabrics
