World's Thinnest checkbook cover and checkbook holder. Tired of those nasty plastic checkbook covers given by banks and others? So is everyone else. Why do reputable banks tarnish their images by giving you those cheapo plastic checkbook covers that crack and fall apart at the first hint of cool temperatures or even within a month of use? Before that happens and you get a plastic checkbook papercut, upgrade to our sleek Swiss Checkbook cover. Made from our proprietary sleek, durable, water-resistant, ultra-thin nylon micro-fiber, you can be sure this won't fall into plastic pieces in your bag, pocket, or even in your washing machine--that's how tough our checkbook covers are. There's space for your checkbook and another pocket for the balance book or two plane tickets to Switzerland to check on your secret account. Just like the Swiss banking system, our check book covers are neat, well-designed, and discreet. And they are covered by our unique Big Skinny warranty. A checkbook cover that has a warranty, imagine that-- that's how much faith we have in our products.

Dimensions: 6⅜" wide x 3" tall (16 cm x 8.4 cm)

Best Checkbook Cover Out There
Last year, when I went on a binge purchase of Big Skinny products, I decided to get the Swiss Checkbook Cover to see if it worked better for my checkbook than the standard plastic/vinyl ones I would get from the bank. Those covers would start to break within months of my acquiring them. I was delighted by this Swiss Checkbook Cover. First of all, the microfiber material is soft and the cover has a nice feel to it. The checkbook and my checks fit into it quite well. I have opened and closed it numerous times and it is nowhere near breaking or falling apart. If you use a standard pack of checks and checkbooks I highly recommend replacing your current cover with this one. I suspect it will last the rest of my life.
ProsSoft and durable

Checkbook cover
I feel the checkbook cover is slightly undersized. My check register extends beyond the bottom edge. If it would just be a half inch larger I would appreciate it more. I still love the Big Skinny wallets. I am using it but feel in time the edge of my register will become ragged. My checks come just to the edge of it and feel they could use a little more protection.

Hasn't changed
I bought this product several years ago. It had the same problem so many reviewers are talking about now - it's just slightly too small. If it carries your checks alone, or if it carries your check register alone, it's great. If you try to put in a check register along with your checks, it won't close all the way. The edge of your register sticks out just a bit and the flap of the check register that inserts into the pocket (to hold it in the cover) gets all messed up and will eventually rip. Reviewers were complaining about this when I bought mine (6-8 years ago) and they were either getting the same responses they're getting now ("we'll take that into consideration," etc.) or they were told that the cover was tested and they had no problems with it. It's too bad - I bought it because I really, really wanted a skinny checkbook cover to fit into my Panther wallet. My advice is, don't waste your money. You'll try carrying it for a while and then you'll get sick of the struggle with the size and you'll throw it in a drawer.
Merchant Response:Hi Maria, Thank you for your feedback. It fits a lot of people's checkbooks & registers, but not everyone's unfortunately. We will process a full refund for you upon return! As you mentioned, most checkbooks will fit into the Panther, Slimvelope, & Executive BigSkinny styles. Thank you again for your review! Have a wonderful week! -BigSkinny

Very disappointed
I own two Big Skinny wallets, and I love both of them. I recently purchased the Swiss Checkbook Cover, but I cannot say the same about it. The problem with this item is that it is much too narrow. I cannot close it if I have inserted both a checkbook and register. In my opinion, this is a sloppy product design. The banks may provide cheap plastic covers, but at least these covers provide ample room when both the checkbook and register are inserted.
Merchant Response:Hi Joel, Thank you for your review! We will take your feedback into consideration when designing the next iteration. Happy Holidays! Big Skinny
ConsToo narrow to be useful.

good concept, but the execution needs revising
I really like the design and the materials of the product. However, once the checkbook and the ledger booklet were inserted into their separate pockets, the checkbook cover does not close well— the edges do not line-up and about 1/8" of the ledger booklet is exposed. (see photo; product is taped to keep it completely closed)
Merchant Response:Hi LWB, Thank you for the image! We will certainly work on the design. Or maybe come up with a 2nd one to hold slightly larger checkbooks. Thank you for your feedback- Have a great day! Big Skinny
